This document proposes to take action on amendments to the standards of performance for petroleum refineries at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Ja. We are proposing to amend the definition of ‘‘delayed coking unit’’ in 40 CFR 60.101a and to remove a redundant definition of ‘‘delayed coking unit’’ in that same section.

We have explained our reasons for this action in the preamble to the direct final rule. If we receive no adverse comment and no request for a public hearing on the parallel direct final rule, we will not take further action on this proposed rule. If we receive adverse comment on a distinct portion of the direct final rule, we will withdraw that portion of the rule and it will not take effect. In this instance, we would address all public comments in any subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. If we receive adverse comment on a distinct provision of the direct final rule, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register indicating which provisions we are withdrawing. The provisions that are not withdrawn will become effective on the date set out in the direct final rule, notwithstanding adverse comment on any other provision. We do not intend to institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. The regulatory text for the proposal is identical to that for the direct final rule published in the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of this Federal Register.

In this document, the Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) seeks to further develop the record on several implementation issues regarding the transition from Connect America Phase I to Phase II. 2. Timing of Phase II Support Disbursements. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, 76 FR 73830, November 29, 2011, the Commission specified that price cap carriers electing to make a state-level commitment would receive five years of model-based support, and it established a process for transitioning support from Connect America Fund Phase I to Phase II in states where model-based support is greater than frozen support. Specifically, for a carrier accepting the state-wide commitment pursuant to Connect America Fund Phase II, ‘‘in the first year, the carrier will receive onehalf the full amount the carrier will receive under CAF Phase II and one-half the amount the carrier received under CAF Phase I for the previous year (which would be the frozen amount if the carrier declines Phase I or the frozen amount plus the incremental amount if the carrier accepts Phase I); in the second year, each carrier accepting the state-wide commitment will receive the full CAF Phase II amount.’’ 3. Several price cap carriers have raised questions regarding how to calculate the five-year funding period in light of the language in paragraph 180 of the USF/ICC Transformation Order. We now seek to more fully develop the record on this issue. The Bureau seeks comment on several alternatives. First, the price cap carrier could receive the remaining half of one year of annual support as a lump sum on the date that is five years after the date of the initial election. Second, the remaining half could be distributed pro-rata on a monthly basis over the third through fifth years. Third, the remaining half year could be provided as a lump sum E:\FR\FM\19DEP1.SGM 19DEP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Why is the EPA issuing this proposed rule?

    This document proposes to take action on amendments to the 
standards of performance for petroleum refineries at 40 CFR part 60, 
subpart Ja. We are proposing to amend the definition of ``delayed 
coking unit'' in 40 CFR 60.101a and to remove a redundant definition of 
``delayed coking unit'' in that same section. We have published a 
direct final rule revising the definition of ``delayed coking unit'' in 
the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal Register because 
we view this as a noncontroversial action and anticipate no adverse 
comment. We have explained our reasons for this action in the preamble 
to the direct final rule.
    If we receive no adverse comment and no request for a public 
hearing on the parallel direct final rule, we will not take further 
action on this proposed rule. If we receive adverse comment on a 
distinct portion of the direct final rule, we will withdraw that 
portion of the rule and it will not take effect. In this instance, we 
would address all public comments in any subsequent final rule based on 
this proposed rule.
    If we receive adverse comment on a distinct provision of the direct 
final rule, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register 
indicating which provisions we are withdrawing. The provisions that are 
not withdrawn will become effective on the date set out in the direct 
final rule, notwithstanding adverse comment on any other provision. We 
do not intend to institute a second comment period on this action. Any 
parties interested in commenting must do so at this time.
    The regulatory text for the proposal is identical to that for the 
direct final rule published in the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of
