National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Deletion of the Monroe Auto Equipment (Paragould Pit) Superfund Site, 47610-47611 [2014-19269]

Download as PDF 47610 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 157 / Thursday, August 14, 2014 / Proposed Rules in the proposal would have no major negative impact on air, water or soil quality, plant or animal life, the use of land or other aspects of the environment. Finally, OSHA has reviewed these potential requirements in accordance with E.O. 13132 regarding Federalism. E.O. 13132 requires that agencies, to the extent possible, refrain from limiting State policy options, consult with States prior to taking any actions that would restrict State policy options, and take such actions only when there is clear constitutional authority and the presence of a problem of national scope. Additionally, E.O. 13132 provides for preemption of State law only if there is a clear Congressional intent for the Agency to do so. Any such preemption is to be limited to the extent possible. Section 18 of the OSH Act, 29 U.S.C. 667, expresses Congress’ clear intent to preempt State laws relating to issues on which Federal OSHA has promulgated occupational safety and health standards. A state can avoid preemption by obtaining Federal approval of a State plan for the development of such standards and their enforcement. Occupational safety and health standards developed by such State Plan States must, among other things, be at least as effective in providing safe and healthful employment and places of employment as the Federal standards. The Agency concludes that these potential requirements comply with E.O. 13132. In States without State Plans, Congress has expressly provided for Federal preemption on issues addressed by an occupational safety and health standard. The final rule would preempt State law in the same manner as any OSHA standard. States with State Plans are free to develop their own policy options on the issues addressed by this proposed rule, provided their standards are at least as effective as the final rule. State comments are invited on this proposal and will be fully considered prior to promulgation of a final rule. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Authority and Signature This document was prepared under the direction of David Michaels, Ph.D., MPH, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.
