Download as PDF 77606 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 247 / Tuesday, December 24, 2013 / Proposed Rules Any questions about the compliance guide should be sent to Jeffrey Smutny at the previously-mentioned address in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. A 15-day comment period is provided to allow interested persons to respond to this proposed rule. Fifteen days is deemed appropriate because: (1) The 2013–14 fiscal period began on August 1, 2013, and the marketing order requires that the rate of assessment for each fiscal period apply to all assessable Florida tomatoes handled during such fiscal period; (2) the Committee needs to have sufficient funds to pay its expenses, which are incurred on a continuous basis; and (3) handlers are aware of this action, which was unanimously recommended by the Committee at a public meeting. List of Subjects in 7 CFR Part 966 Marketing agreements, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Tomatoes. For the reasons set forth in the preamble, 7 CFR part 966 is proposed to be amended as follows: PART 966—TOMATOES GROWN IN FLORIDA 1. The authority citation for 7 CFR part 966 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 7 U.S.C. 601–674. 2. Section 966.234 is revised to read as follows: ■ § 966.234 Assessment rate. On and after August 1, 2013, an assessment rate of $0.0375 per 25-pound carton is established for Florida tomatoes. Dated: December 17, 2013. Rex A.

In 2007, the Commission approved the initiation of a rulemaking recommended by the NRC staff in SECY–07–0148, to strengthen security requirements at ISFSIs. On December 16, 2009 (74 FR 66589), the NRC staff published in the Federal Register a notice of availability and request for comment on the NRC staff’s draft regulatory basis for the rulemaking. In light of opposition, expressed in comments, on some of the key technical approaches discussed in the draft regulatory basis, the staff sought direction from the Commission concerning the proposed rulemaking.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2007, the Commission approved the 
initiation of a rulemaking recommended by the NRC staff in SECY-07-

2009 (74 FR 66589), the NRC staff published in the Federal Register a 
notice of availability and request for comment on the NRC staff's draft 
regulatory basis for the rulemaking. In light of opposition, expressed 
in comments, on some of the key technical approaches discussed in the 
draft regulatory basis, the staff sought direction from the Commission 
concerning the proposed rulemaking. In SRM-SECY-10-0114, the Commission

ISFSIs, engage stakeholders, develop draft guidance, and provide a 
supplemental paper (now due on May 14, 2014) to evaluate whether 
changes in the proposed rulemaking's direction are necessary. The NRC 
staff is still in the information gathering stage for this planned 
security rulemaking.
