Listing Endangered or Threatened Species: 90-Day Finding on a Petition To Revise the Critical Habitat Designation for the Southern Resident Killer Whale
Document Number: 2014-09483
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-25
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
We, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), announce a 90-day finding on a petition from the Center for Biological Diversity to revise the critical habitat designation for the Southern Resident killer whale (Orcinus orca) Distinct Population Segment (DPS) under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). In November 2006 we issued a final rule designating approximately 2,560 square miles (6,630 square km) of inland waters of Washington State as critical habitat for the Southern Resident killer whale DPS. The petition requests we revise this critical habitat to include inhabited Pacific Ocean marine waters along the West Coast of the United States that constitute essential foraging and wintering areas. Additionally, the petition requests that we adopt protective in-water sound levels as a primary constituent element for both currently designated critical habitat and the proposed revised critical habitat. We find that the petition to revise critical habitat, viewed in the context of information readily available in our files, presents substantial scientific information indicating the petitioned action may be warranted. We are hereby initiating a review of the currently designated critical habitat to determine whether revision is warranted. To ensure a comprehensive review, we are soliciting scientific and commercial information pertaining to this action.

Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders
Document Number: 2014-09447
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-25
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to grant requests from four individuals for exemptions from the regulatory requirement that interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers have ``no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition which is likely to cause loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to control a CMV.'' The regulation and the associated advisory criteria published in the Code of Federal Regulations as the ``Instructions for Performing and Recording Physical Examinations'' have resulted in numerous drivers being prohibited from operating CMVs in interstate commerce based on the fact that they have had one or more seizures and are taking anti-seizure medication, rather than an individual analysis of their circumstances by a qualified medical examiner. The Agency concluded that granting exemptions for these CMV drivers will provide a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety maintained without the exemptions. FMCSA grants exemptions that will allow these four individuals to operate CMVs in interstate commerce for a 2-year period. The exemptions preempt State laws and regulations and may be renewed.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment draft regulatory guide (DG), DG-1310, ``Medical Evaluation of Licensed Personnel for Nuclear Power Plants,'' which would be Revision 4 to Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.134. The NRC proposes to update RG 1.134 based upon the regulatory experience gained since Revision 3 of RG 1.134 was issued and to endorse the 2013 revision to the underlying consensus standard, ANSI/ANS 3.4, ``Medical Certification and Monitoring of Personnel Requiring Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants.'' The guide helps to ensure that medical certifications (and related medical evidence) are sufficient to meet the NRC's nuclear power reactor operator licensing requirements.

Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR part 1500-08) implementing procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Department of Labor, ETA, in accordance with 29 CFR 11.11(d), gives final notice of the proposed facility improvements at the Treasure Lake Job Corps Center, and that this project will not have a significant adverse impact on the environment. Public scoping was initiated with a notice in the Lawton Constitution in Lawton, Oklahoma on July 16, 2013. The scoping period extended for 30 days, ending on August 16, 2013. No public responses were received. No changes to the text of the environmental assessment (EA) have been made. Implementation of the selected alternative will not have significant impacts on the human environment. The determination is sustained by the analysis in the EA, agency consultation, the inclusion and consideration of public review, and the capability of mitigations to reduce or avoid impacts. Any adverse environmental impacts that could occur are no more than minor in intensity, duration and context and less-than-significant. As described in the EA, there are no highly uncertain or controversial impacts, unique or unknown risks, significant cumulative effects or elements of precedence. There are no previous, planned, or implemented actions, which in combination with the selected alternative would have significant effects on the human environment. Requirements of NEPA have been satisfied and preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is not required.
