Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of Arizona; Payson PM10
Document Number: 2014-05669
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-03-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving a revision to the Payson portion of the Arizona State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality on January 23, 2012. This revision consists of the second ten-year maintenance plan for the Payson air quality planning area for the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for particulate matter less than 10 microns in diameter (PM10). EPA is approving this plan based on the conclusion that the plan adequately provides for continued maintenance of the PM10 NAAQS in the Payson area through 2022. EPA is taking this action pursuant to those provisions of the CAA that obligate the Agency to take action on submittals of revisions to SIPs. The effect of this action is to make the State's continuing commitments with respect to maintenance of the PM10 NAAQS in the Payson area federally enforceable for another ten years.

Notice of Public Meeting
Document Number: 2014-05352
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-03-19
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Forest Service
The Department of Agriculture, Forest Service will hold a workshop entitled ``Cellulose NanomaterialA Path Towards Commercialization'' on May 20-21, 2014 in collaboration with and co- sponsored by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). The workshop is intended to bring together executives and experts from the federal government, academia, and private sector to identify critical information gaps that need to be filled and technical barriers that need to be overcome to enable the commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials. Workshop presenters and participants will identify pathways for the commercialization of cellulosic nanomaterials and the workshop will facilitate communication across multiple industry sectors; between users and cellulose nanomaterials producers; and among government, academia and industry to determine common challenges. An important goal of the workshop is to identify the critical information gaps and technical barriers in the commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials from the perspective of nanocellulose user communities. The outcomes of the workshop are expected to be used to guide federal government and private sector investments in nanocellulose research and development. The workshop also supports the announcement last December by USDA Secretary Thomas Vilsack regarding the formation of a public private-partnership to rapidly advance the commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials. The USDA announcement can be found at: http:// www.usda.gov/wps/portal/usda/usdahome?contentid=2013%2F12%2F0 235.xml. This workshop also supports the goals of the NNI Sustainable Nanomanufacturing Signature Initiative.
Pesticides; Agricultural Worker Protection Standard Revisions
Document Number: 2014-04761
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-03-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing updates and revisions to the existing worker protection regulation for pesticides. The proposed changes are in response to extensive stakeholder review of the regulation and its implementation since 1992, and reflect current research on how to mitigate occupational pesticide exposure to agricultural workers and pesticide handlers. EPA is proposing to strengthen the protections provided to agricultural workers and handlers under the worker protection standard by improving elements of the existing regulation, such as training, notification, communication materials, use of personal protective equipment, and decontamination supplies. EPA expects the revisions, once final, to prevent unreasonable adverse effects from exposure to pesticides among agricultural workers and pesticide handlers; vulnerable groups, such as minority and low-income populations, child farmworkers, and farmworker families; and the general public. EPA recognizes the importance and independence of family farms and is proposing to expand the immediate family exemption to the WPS.
