The Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 directs the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to establish a program (the ``Veterans Choice Program'') to furnish hospital care and medical services through non-VA health care entities and providers to Veterans who either cannot be seen within the ``wait-time goals of the Veterans Health Administration'' or who qualify based on their place of residence. The statute defines the goals as being ``not more than 30 days from the date on which a veteran requests an appointment for hospital care or medical services from the Department'' but also permits VA to establish another standard by submitting to Congress a report stating that VA's actual goals are different. This Federal Register Notice announces VA's report on the wait-time goals for purposes of the Veterans Choice Program.

Treatment activities could include mechanical thinning, hand thinning, mastication, hazard tree removal, salvage, prescribed fire, tree planting, and relocation of selected road segments. The treatments will be used singularly or in combination to transition the landscape towards long-term desired future conditions that are more characteristic of a resilient forest, as described in the Rio Grande National Forest and San Luis Resource Area Management Plans. Resilient landscapes are more resistant to droughts, insect outbreaks, diseases, potential large wildfires, and will also offer additional protection to identified values at risk including: adjacent private land and property, water quality, watershed health, transportation systems, recreation sites, wildlife habitats, heritage sites, and timber resources. The USFS is the lead agency for the Environmental Impact Statement and the BLM is participating as a cooperating agency.

Document Number: 2014-24742
Type: Proposed Rule

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to partially approve and partially disapprove the State Implementation Plan (SIP) submittal from Washington, received September 22, 2014, demonstrating that the SIP meets the infrastructure requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) promulgated for ozone on March 12, 2008, and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) on January 22, 2010. The CAA requires that each state, after a new or revised NAAQS is promulgated, review their SIP to ensure that it meets the infrastructure requirements necessary to implement the new or revised NAAQS. Washington certified that the Washington SIP meets the infrastructure requirements of the CAA for the ozone and NO2 NAAQS, except for those requirements related to the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting program currently operated under a Federal Implementation Plan (FIP), certain elements of the regional haze program currently operated under a FIP, and specific requirements related to interstate transport which will be addressed in a separate submittal. The EPA is proposing to find that Washington's SIP is adequate for purposes of the infrastructure SIP requirements of the CAA with the exceptions noted above. The EPA is proposing to find that the SIP deficiencies related to PSD permitting and regional haze, however, have been adequately addressed by the existing EPA FIPs and, therefore, no further action is required by Washington or the EPA for those elements. The EPA will address the remaining interstate transport requirements in a separate action.

Document Number: 2014-24733
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-17
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to add SHINE Medical Technologies, Inc.'s (SHINE) proposed accelerator-driven subcritical operating assemblies to the NRC's definition of a ``utilization facility.'' In 2013, SHINE submitted a two-part construction permit application for a medical radioisotope production facility that SHINE proposes to build in Janesville, Wisconsin. The proposed accelerator-driven subcritical operating assemblies, to be housed in SHINE's irradiation facility, would be used to produce molybdenum-99, a radioisotope used in medical imaging and other radioisotopes used for medical purposes. This rule allows NRC staff to conduct an efficient and effective licensing review of the SHINE construction permit application and any subsequent operating license application.

FTA is extending the comment period for the notice of request for comments, which was published on August 19, 2014. The original comment period closed on September 18, 2014.
