The Commission is eliminating a requirement that the Postal Service prepare the annual cost and revenue analysis report in an alternative format.

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reissuing its final limited approval of the Pennsylvania State Implementation Plan (SIP) to implement the regional haze program for the first planning period through 2018.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Wisconsin; Nitrogen Oxide Combustion Turbine Alternative Control Requirements for the Milwaukee-Racine Former Nonattainment Area
Document Number: 2014-09724
Type: Rule

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
On February 24, 2014, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) submitted revisions to its nitrogen oxide (NOX) combustion turbine rule for the Milwaukee-Racine former nonattainment area.

This revision is approvable because it provides for alternative NOX requirements subject to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval on a case-by-case basis and therefore satisfies the reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

Public comment is invited concerning the scope of the review and environmental issues that should be addressed. This notice is provided in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality's regulations (40 CFR parts 1500 to 1508) and TVA's procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
Willamette National Forest, McKenzie River Ranger District; Oregon; Goose Project
Document Number: 2014-09700
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-30
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Forest Service
We propose to commercially harvest approximately 2,134 acres, reduce hazardous fuels through non-commercial thinning on ~588 acres, and implement understory prescribe fire on ~80 to ~679 acres within the McKenzie Bridge Wildland-Urban Interface. Commercial harvest treatments would be comprised of variable density thinning on ~2,085 acres (that includes gap creations and no-cut leave areas) and regeneration harvest on ~49 acres (through a two-aged system that would allow for the regeneration of younger trees underneath residual trees left from the original canopy). The proposed action would also include maintenance of approximately 43 miles of road and creation of approximately 8 miles of temporary roads. The project area surrounds the community of McKenzie Bridge and is intermixed with private and national forest lands. The proposed project would manage stands to improve stand conditions: Diversity, density, and structure; reduce hazardous fuel levels in the McKenzie Bridge Wildland-Urban Interface; and provide for a sustainable supply of timber products from within the project area.

Agency: Postal Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Postal Regulatory Commission published a document in the Federal Register on June 18, 2013 (78 FR 36434) revising certain Commission rules of practice.

This document corrects the final regulations by restoring the omitted elements, consistent with the scope and intent of Order No. 1742.
