SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Hawaii administers an OSHAapproved state plan to develop and enforce occupational safety and health standards for public and private sector employers, pursuant to the provisions of Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (the Act). Pursuant to Section 18(e) of the Act, OSHA granted Hawaii ‘‘final approval’’ effective April 30, 1984 (49 FR 19182). A final approval determination results in the relinquishment of federal concurrent enforcement authority in the state with respect to occupational safety and health issues covered by the plan. 29 U.S.C. 667(e). From 2009–2012, the Hawaii State Plan faced major budgetary and staffing restraints that significantly affected its program. Therefore, the Hawaii Director of Labor and Industrial Relations requested a temporary modification of the state plan’s approval status from final approval to initial approval, to permit exercise of supplemental federal enforcement activity and to allow Hawaii sufficient time and assistance to strengthen its state plan. On June 22, 2012, a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published and on September 21, 2012, OSHA published a Final Rule in the Federal Register (77 FR 58488) that modified the Hawaii State Plan’s ‘‘final approval’’ determination under Section 18(e) of the Act, transitioned the Plan to ‘‘initial approval’’ status under Section 18(b) of the Act, and reinstated concurrent federal enforcement authority over occupational safety and health issues in the private sector. That E:\FR\FM\14FER1.SGM 14FER1 8856 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 31 / Friday, February 14, 2014 / Rules and Regulations tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Federal Register notice also provided notice of the Operational Status Agreement (OSA) between OSHA and the Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division (HIOSH), which specified the respective areas of federal and state authority. After the first year of the planned three-year developmental period, Hawaii’s Department of Labor and Industrial Relations has taken the initial steps in rebuilding the capacity of HIOSH. Hawaii is committed to redeveloping its State Plan, and has increased its staff recruitment to reach its staffing benchmark, and has increased its inspection activity by 148% over the prior fiscal year. HIOSH and OSHA have worked together to strengthen the State Plan. A meeting between federal and state representatives on September 11–13, 2013 discussed the successes and challenges of the first year under the OSA and worked to clarify the next steps needed to be taken as the state agency further develops. OSHA and HIOSH agreed to amend the OSA to return greater responsibility to HIOSH for Fiscal Year 2014. Accordingly, this final rule amends OSHA regulations to reflect this change in the OSA between the parties by removing the reference to the specific 2012 OSA. Notice of Revisions to the Operational Status Agreement Federal OSHA and HIOSH will exercise their respective enforcement authority according to the terms of the 2012 OSA between OSHA and HIOSH, which specifies the respective areas of federal and state authority, with revisions agreed to in September 2013. Under the 2012 OSA, Federal OSHA retained coverage over all Federal employees and sites, private sector maritime activities, private sector employees within the secured borders of all military installations where access is controlled, and United States Postal Service including contract workers and contractor operated facilities, and assumed coverage over agriculture and most of general industry including facilities that include processes covered by the Process Safety Management standard (29 CFR 1910.119) as well as provisions of general industry and construction standards (29 CFR 1910 and 1926) appropriate to hazards found in that employment. Hawaii retained coverage over the construction industry, transportation and warehousing, and state and local government as an employer. All terms of the 2012 OSA remain in effect, except that Hawaii will resume responsibility over Manufacturing (NAICS 31 through 33) VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:37 Feb 13, 2014 Jkt 232001 except Refineries (NAICS 324) and any other private sector facilities that include processes covered by the Process Safety Management standard (29 CFR 1910.119). Federal OSHA will also enforce provisions of the Act and of the general industry and construction standards appropriate to hazards found in facilities with processes that are covered by the Process Safety Management standard. Further, the revised OSA provides a mechanism for the most-available agency to respond to life-threatening situations on neighbor islands. Regulatory Flexibility Analysis and Unfunded Mandates In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq. (as amended), OSHA examined the regulatory requirements of the final rule to determine whether it would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Since no employer of any size will have any new compliance obligations, the Agency certifies that the final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. OSHA also reviewed this final rule in accordance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA; 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.) and Executive Order 12875 (56 FR 58093). Because this rule imposes no new compliance obligations, it requires no additional expenditures by either private employers or State, local, and tribal governments. Federalism Executive Order 13132, ‘‘Federalism,’’ (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999) emphasizes consultation between Federal agencies and the States and establishes specific review procedures the Federal government must follow as it carries out policies which affect State or local governments. OSHA has consulted extensively with Hawaii about this modification of the Operational Status Agreement. Although OSHA has determined that the requirements and consultation procedures provided in Executive Order 13132 are not applicable to approval decisions under the Act, which have no effect outside the particular State, OSHA has reviewed this final rule, and believes it is consistent with the principles and criteria set forth in the Executive Order. Administrative Procedures This Federal Register document is designated a ‘‘final rule.’’ That designation is necessary because OSHA publishes a general description of every PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 state plan in 29 CFR part 1952. Because they are set forth in the Code of Federal Regulation, these descriptions can be updated only by publishing a ‘‘final rule’’ document in the final rules section of the Federal Register. Such rules do not contain any new federal regulatory requirements, but merely provide public information about the state plan. OSHA finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. Today’s action is solely a change in Federal OSHA’s procedures. It does not impose any new compliance obligations on affected employers, since Hawaii’s safety and health standards and regulations are virtually all identical to OSHA’s regulations. There are a very few instances in which Hawaii has more stringent requirements; however these state standards remain in effect and OSHA will make referrals to the state when needed. Therefore, employers’ compliance obligations are not legally affected by the amendment to the OSA announced in this notice. For these reasons, public notice and comment are unnecessary, and good cause exists for making this final rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register. Accordingly, OSHA finds that public participation is unnecessary, and this rule is effective upon publication in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PBGC’s regulation on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR Part 4022) prescribes actuarial assumptions—including interest assumptions—for paying plan benefits under terminating single-employer plans covered by title IV of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The interest assumptions in the regulation are also published on PBGC’s Web site (http://www.pbgc.gov). PBGC uses the interest assumptions in Appendix B to Part 4022 to determine whether a benefit is payable as a lump sum and to determine the amount to pay. Appendix C to Part 4022 contains interest assumptions for private-sector pension practitioners to refer to if they wish to use lump-sum interest rates determined using PBGC’s historical methodology. Currently, the rates in Appendices B and C of the benefit payment regulation are the same. The interest assumptions are intended to reflect current conditions in the financial and annuity markets. Assumptions under the benefit payments regulation are updated monthly. This final rule updates the benefit payments interest assumptions for March 2014.1 The March 2014 interest assumptions under the benefit payments regulation will be 1.50 percent for the period during which a benefit is in pay status and 4.00 percent during any years preceding the benefit’s placement in pay status.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Hawaii administers an OSHA-approved state plan to develop and 
enforce occupational safety and health standards for public and private 
sector employers, pursuant to the provisions of Section 18 of the 
Occupational Safety and Health Act (the Act). Pursuant to Section 18(e) 
of the Act, OSHA granted Hawaii ``final approval'' effective April 30, 
1984 (49 FR 19182). A final approval determination results in the 
relinquishment of federal concurrent enforcement authority in the state 
with respect to occupational safety and health issues covered by the 
plan. 29 U.S.C. 667(e).
    From 2009-2012, the Hawaii State Plan faced major budgetary and 
staffing restraints that significantly affected its program. Therefore, 
the Hawaii Director of Labor and Industrial Relations requested a 
temporary modification of the state plan's approval status from final 
approval to initial approval, to permit exercise of supplemental 
federal enforcement activity and to allow Hawaii sufficient time and 
assistance to strengthen its state plan. On June 22, 2012, a Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking was published and on September 21, 2012, OSHA 
published a Final Rule in the Federal Register (77 FR 58488) that 
modified the Hawaii State Plan's ``final approval'' determination under 
Section 18(e) of the Act, transitioned the Plan to ``initial approval'' 
status under Section 18(b) of the Act, and reinstated concurrent 
federal enforcement authority over occupational safety and health 
issues in the private sector. That

[[Page 8856]]

Federal Register notice also provided notice of the Operational Status 
Agreement (OSA) between OSHA and the Hawaii Occupational Safety and 
Health Division (HIOSH), which specified the respective areas of 
federal and state authority.
    After the first year of the planned three-year developmental 
period, Hawaii's Department of Labor and Industrial Relations has taken 
the initial steps in rebuilding the capacity of HIOSH. Hawaii is 
committed to redeveloping its State Plan, and has increased its staff 
recruitment to reach its staffing benchmark, and has increased its 
inspection activity by 148% over the prior fiscal year. HIOSH and OSHA 
have worked together to strengthen the State Plan. A meeting between 
federal and state representatives on September 11-13, 2013 discussed 
the successes and challenges of the first year under the OSA and worked 
to clarify the next steps needed to be taken as the state agency 
further develops. OSHA and HIOSH agreed to amend the OSA to return 
greater responsibility to HIOSH for Fiscal Year 2014. Accordingly, this 
final rule amends OSHA regulations to reflect this change in the OSA 
between the parties by removing the reference to the specific 2012 OSA.

Notice of Revisions to the Operational Status Agreement

    Federal OSHA and HIOSH will exercise their respective enforcement 
authority according to the terms of the 2012 OSA between OSHA and 
HIOSH, which specifies the respective areas of federal and state 
authority, with revisions agreed to in September 2013. Under the 2012 
OSA, Federal OSHA retained coverage over all Federal employees and 
sites, private sector maritime activities, private sector employees 
within the secured borders of all military installations where access 
is controlled, and United States Postal Service including contract 
workers and contractor operated facilities, and assumed coverage over 
agriculture and most of general industry including facilities that 
include processes covered by the Process Safety Management standard (29 
CFR 1910.119) as well as provisions of general industry and 
construction standards (29 CFR 1910 and 1926) appropriate to hazards 
found in that employment. Hawaii retained coverage over the 
construction industry, transportation and warehousing, and state and 
local government as an employer. All terms of the 2012 OSA remain in 
effect, except that Hawaii will resume responsibility over 
Manufacturing (NAICS 31 through 33) except Refineries (NAICS 324) and 
any other private sector facilities that include processes covered by 
the Process Safety Management standard (29 CFR 1910.119). Federal OSHA 
will also enforce provisions of the Act and of the general industry and 
construction standards appropriate to hazards found in facilities with 
processes that are covered by the Process Safety Management standard. 
Further, the revised OSA provides a mechanism for the most-available 
agency to respond to life-threatening situations on neighbor islands.

Regulatory Flexibility Analysis and Unfunded Mandates

    In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et 
seq. (as amended), OSHA examined the regulatory requirements of the 
final rule to determine whether it would have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities. Since no employer of 
any size will have any new compliance obligations, the Agency certifies 
that the final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. OSHA also reviewed this final 
rule in accordance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA; 
2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.) and Executive Order 12875 (56 FR 58093). Because 
this rule imposes no new compliance obligations, it requires no 
additional expenditures by either private employers or State, local, 
and tribal governments.

Federalism

    Executive Order 13132, ``Federalism,'' (64 FR 43255, August 10, 
1999) emphasizes consultation between Federal agencies and the States 
and establishes specific review procedures the Federal government must 
follow as it carries out policies which affect State or local 
governments. OSHA has consulted extensively with Hawaii about this 
modification of the Operational Status Agreement. Although OSHA has 
determined that the requirements and consultation procedures provided 
in Executive Order 13132 are not applicable to approval decisions under 
the Act, which have no effect outside the particular State, OSHA has 
reviewed this final rule, and believes it is consistent with the 
principles and criteria set forth in the Executive Order.

Administrative Procedures

    This Federal Register document is designated a ``final rule.'' That 
designation is necessary because OSHA publishes a general description 
of every state plan in 29 CFR part 1952. Because they are set forth in 
the Code of Federal Regulation, these descriptions can be updated only 
by publishing a ``final rule'' document in the final rules section of 
the Federal Register. Such rules do not contain any new federal 
regulatory requirements, but merely provide public information about 
the state plan.
    OSHA finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective 
immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. Today's action is 
solely a change in Federal OSHA's procedures. It does not impose any 
new compliance obligations on affected employers, since Hawaii's safety 
and health standards and regulations are virtually all identical to 
OSHA's regulations. There are a very few instances in which Hawaii has 
more stringent requirements; however these state standards remain in 
effect and OSHA will make referrals to the state when needed. 
Therefore, employers' compliance obligations are not legally affected 
by the amendment to the OSA announced in this notice. For these 
reasons, public notice and comment are unnecessary, and good cause 
exists for making this final rule effective upon publication in the 
Federal Register. Accordingly, OSHA finds that public participation is 
unnecessary, and this rule is effective upon publication in the Federal 
Register.
