Abstract: The USEPA Office of Research and Development is investigating public values for options of salmon recovery in the Willamette Watershed in western Oregon. These values will be estimated via a willingness to pay mail survey instrument. Two anadromous fish species in the Willamette watershed are federally listed as threatened species; Spring Chinook, and Winter steelhead. The survey focuses on two attributes of recovery for these fish: The recovery status; and the time to recovery. A choice experiment framework is used with statistically designed tradeoff questions, where recovery options are posed as increases in a yearly household tax. The choice experiment is designed to allow independent isolation of the value of recovery and of time to recovery. A few additional questions to further understand the motivations for respondent choices, their river-related recreation behavior, and their attitudes towards wild origin versus hatchery origin fish are also included. Limited sociodemographic questions are included to gauge how well the sample respondents represent the target population. The survey will be fielded to Oregon residents. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Individuals. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 1,000 (total). Frequency of response: Once. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Oct 29, 2014 Jkt 235001 Total estimated burden: 500 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $8,620 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: This is a new collection.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice announces the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA’s) approval of the State of Indiana’s request to revise its National Primary Drinking Water Regulations Implementation EPA-authorized program to allow electronic reporting. DATES: EPA’s approval is effective October 30, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karen Seeh, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Environmental Information, Mail Stop 2823T, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20460, (202) 566–1175, seeh.karen@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 13, 2005, the final Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR) was published in the Federal Register (70 FR 59848) and codified as part 3 of title 40 of the CFR. CROMERR establishes electronic reporting as an acceptable regulatory alternative to paper reporting and establishes requirements to assure that electronic documents are as legally dependable as their paper counterparts. Subpart D of CROMERR requires that state, tribal or local government agencies that receive, or wish to begin receiving, electronic reports under their EPA-authorized programs must apply to EPA for a revision or modification of those programs and obtain EPA approval. Subpart D provides standards for such approvals based on consideration of the electronic document receiving systems that the state, tribe, or local government will use to implement the electronic reporting. Additionally, § 3.1000(b) SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 through (e) of 40 CFR part 3, subpart D provides special procedures for program revisions and modifications to allow electronic reporting, to be used at the option of the state, tribe or local government in place of procedures available under existing programspecific authorization regulations. An application submitted under the subpart D procedures must show that the state, tribe or local government has sufficient legal authority to implement the electronic reporting components of the programs covered by the application and will use electronic document receiving systems that meet the applicable subpart D requirements. On June 13, 2014, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) submitted an application titled ‘‘Indiana Electronic Sample Entry Verify (eSE) System’’ for revision of its EPA-authorized Part 142 program under title 40 CFR. EPA reviewed IDEM’s request to revise its EPA-authorized program and, based on this review, EPA determined that the application met the standards for approval of authorized program revision set out in 40 CFR part 3, subpart D. In accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(d), this notice of EPA’s decision to approve Indiana’s request to revise its Part 142— National Primary Drinking Water Regulations Implementation program to allow electronic reporting under 40 CFR part 141 is being published in the Federal Register. IDEM was notified of EPA’s determination to approve its application with respect to the authorized program listed above. Dated: October 9, 2014.

Synopsis 1. In document DA 14–1487, the Commission’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB or Bureau) announces electronic filing procedures for petitions for exemption from the Commission’s closed captioning requirements for video programming delivered using Internet protocol (IP). On January 12, 2012, the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Oct 29, 2014 Jkt 235001 Commission released the IP Closed Captioning Order adopting rules that require, among other things, that all individual closed captioning exemption petitions for IP-delivered video programming, all comments and oppositions responsive to such petitions, and all replies to comments or oppositions to such petitions be filed electronically. Closed Captioning of Internet Protocol-Delivered Video Programming: Implementation of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, MB Docket No. 11–154, Report and Order (IP Closed Captioning Order); published at 77 FR 19479, March 30, 2012. 2. Exemption Petitions. In order to file a petition for exemption from the IP closed captioning rules electronically, the petitioner must send the petition, together with documentation supporting such a petition, via email to captioningexemption@fcc.gov. Petitions must be filed electronically by email and may not be filed via the Commission’s Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS). At this time, the Commission’s email system does not accept attachments in the form of .ZIP files or file sizes larger than 13.3 megabytes. If a petitioner has concerns that its file size will exceed this limitation, it may contact Commission staff. Upon receipt of a petition, the Commission will send an acknowledgement to the petitioner by email. The Commission will also assign a case identifier number (for example, ‘‘CGB–CC–2345’’) to the petition. This case identifier number and the reference to ‘‘CG Docket No. 13–318’’ must be included on all correspondence with the Commission regarding the petition, including any supplemental information to support the petition and subsequent pleadings in response to comments on or oppositions to the petition. 3. Once the petitioner provides the required information and documentation to the Commission, the petition will be placed on public notice, pursuant to the Commission’s rules, to permit interested parties to file comments on or oppositions to the petition. The Commission will make the petition, as well as any supporting information and documentation provided, available for public inspection in the Commission’s Reference Information Center and through ECFS at http://apps.fcc.gov/ ecfs/. Because petitions and any supporting information and documentation provided by email to captioningexemption@fcc.gov will be uploaded to ECFS by the Commission, petitioners must follow the ECFS document format guidelines available at PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64593 http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/userManual/ upload/documents.jsp when submitting petitions and any supporting information and documentation via email. Petitioners are encouraged not to include personally sensitive information in their petitions, such as social security numbers, bank account and routing numbers, and other similarly sensitive information. If a petitioner nevertheless includes such sensitive information in its filing, it must redact (remove or conceal with black ink) such information from its submission. Unless otherwise directed by the petitioner, anything in the body of the petitioner’s email will not be considered as part of the petition; rather only the attachments will be considered as part of the petition and posted on ECFS. If the petitioner wishes to also include content contained in the body of the email as part of the petition, which will be posted on ECFS, it should state so in the email. 4. Confidential Treatment. A petitioner may request confidential treatment of any information contained in or submitted in support of its petition. A petitioner seeking such treatment for any such information must submit, via email to captioningexemption@fcc.gov, a written request for confidential treatment and two versions of the petition: (1) A confidential version that contains the complete, unredacted submission; and (2) a public version that redacts any claimed confidential information. A request for confidential treatment may not be filed via ECFS. The request must comply with the requirements of 47 CFR 0.459, including: (a) Identification of the specific information submitted for which confidential treatment is sought; (b) a statement of the reasons for withholding those materials from public inspection; and (c) an explanation of how public disclosure of the information could result in substantial competitive harm. The request must show by a preponderance of the evidence that nondisclosure is consistent with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Mere conclusory or generalized allegations cannot support a request for nondisclosure. In light of the Commission’s desire for openness in its exemption petition review processes, if the Bureau determines that members of the public should have access to portions of a filing that the petitioner asserts are confidential, it may allow such access pursuant to a protective order. To help achieve such openness where a petitioner has sought confidentiality of certain information E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 64594 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 210 / Thursday, October 30, 2014 / Notices submitted in support of its petition, the petitioner should, to the extent possible, include in its petition the non-sensitive supporting information contained in the confidential materials so that members of the public may review, consider, and comment on the petition. 5. Comments and Oppositions. Comments on or oppositions to a petition must be filed electronically via ECFS at http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/ upload/begin?filedFrom=E. The ‘‘ECFS Express’’ form cannot be used for the filing of comments or oppositions. If the submission is sent to the Commission only by email, the Commission will upload the submission to ECFS. Comments or oppositions filed via ECFS must include ‘‘13–318’’ as the ‘‘Proceeding Number’’ on the ECFS form. In addition, filers must enter the four-digit case identifier number (e.g., ‘‘CC–2345’’) as the ‘‘File Number’’ on the ECFS form. If a filer wishes to file an identical set of comments or oppositions via ECFS on multiple petitions that have been assigned more than one case identifier number, the comments or oppositions must be filed separately for each petition/case identifier number. In such a case, a different case identifier number will have to be entered as the ‘‘File Number’’ for each separate filing (e.g., ‘‘CC–2345’’ entered as the File Number for the first filing and ‘‘CC–2346’’ entered as the File Number for the second filing and so on, even if the comments or oppositions being filed are identical to the first filing). Multiple case identifier numbers may not be entered as one ‘‘File Number.’’ 6. Replies. Replies to comments on or oppositions to a petition must be filed electronically via ECFS at http:// apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/ begin?filedFrom=E. The ‘‘ECFS Express’’ form cannot be used for this purpose. If the submission is sent to the Commission only by email, the Commission will upload the submission to ECFS. Replies must include ‘‘13–318’’ as the ‘‘Proceeding Number’’ and the four-digit case identifier number (e.g., ‘‘CC–2345’’) as the ‘‘File Number’’ in this proceeding. If a filer wishes to file an identical set of replies via ECFS on multiple petitions that have been assigned more than one case identifier number, the replies must be filed separately for each petition/case identifier number. In this case, a different case identifier number will have to be entered as the ‘‘File Number’’ for each separate filing (e.g., ‘‘CC–2345’’ entered as the File Number for the first filing and ‘‘CC–2346’’ entered as the File Number for the second filing and so on, even if the replies being filed are VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Oct 29, 2014 Jkt 235001 identical to the first filing).

Synopsis

    1. In document DA 14-1487, the Commission's Consumer and 
Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB or Bureau) announces electronic filing 
procedures for petitions for exemption from the Commission's closed 
captioning requirements for video programming delivered using Internet 
protocol (IP). On January 12, 2012, the Commission released the IP 
Closed Captioning Order adopting rules that require, among other 
things, that all individual closed captioning exemption petitions for 
IP-delivered video programming, all comments and oppositions responsive 
to such petitions, and all replies to comments or oppositions to such 
petitions be filed electronically. Closed Captioning of Internet 
Protocol-Delivered Video Programming: Implementation of the Twenty-
First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, MB 
Docket No. 11-154, Report and Order (IP Closed Captioning Order); 
published at 77 FR 19479, March 30, 2012.
    2. Exemption Petitions. In order to file a petition for exemption 
from the IP closed captioning rules electronically, the petitioner must 
send the petition, together with documentation supporting such a 
petition, via email to captioningexemption@fcc.gov. Petitions must be 
filed electronically by email and may not be filed via the Commission's 
Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS). At this time, the Commission's 
email system does not accept attachments in the form of .ZIP files or 
file sizes larger than 13.3 megabytes. If a petitioner has concerns 
that its file size will exceed this limitation, it may contact 
Commission staff. Upon receipt of a petition, the Commission will send 
an acknowledgement to the petitioner by email. The Commission will also 
assign a case identifier number (for example, ``CGB-CC-2345'') to the 
petition. This case identifier number and the reference to ``CG Docket 
No. 13-318'' must be included on all correspondence with the Commission 
regarding the petition, including any supplemental information to 
support the petition and subsequent pleadings in response to comments 
on or oppositions to the petition.
    3. Once the petitioner provides the required information and 
documentation to the Commission, the petition will be placed on public 
notice, pursuant to the Commission's rules, to permit interested 
parties to file comments on or oppositions to the petition. The 
Commission will make the petition, as well as any supporting 
information and documentation provided, available for public inspection 
in the Commission's Reference Information Center and through ECFS at 
http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/. Because petitions and any supporting 
information and documentation provided by email to 
captioningexemption@fcc.gov will be uploaded to ECFS by the Commission, 
petitioners must follow the ECFS document format guidelines available 
at http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/userManual/upload/documents.jsp when 
submitting petitions and any supporting information and documentation 
via email. Petitioners are encouraged not to include personally 
sensitive information in their petitions, such as social security 
numbers, bank account and routing numbers, and other similarly 
sensitive information. If a petitioner nevertheless includes such 
sensitive information in its filing, it must redact (remove or conceal 
with black ink) such information from its submission. Unless otherwise 
directed by the petitioner, anything in the body of the petitioner's 
email will not be considered as part of the petition; rather only the 
attachments will be considered as part of the petition and posted on 
ECFS. If the petitioner wishes to also include content contained in the 
body of the email as part of the petition, which will be posted on 
ECFS, it should state so in the email.
    4. Confidential Treatment. A petitioner may request confidential 
treatment of any information contained in or submitted in support of 
its petition. A petitioner seeking such treatment for any such 
information must submit, via email to captioningexemption@fcc.gov, a 
written request for confidential treatment and two versions of the 
petition: (1) A confidential version that contains the complete, 
unredacted submission; and (2) a public version that redacts any 
claimed confidential information. A request for confidential treatment 
may not be filed via ECFS. The request must comply with the 
requirements of 47 CFR 0.459, including: (a) Identification of the 
specific information submitted for which confidential treatment is 
sought; (b) a statement of the reasons for withholding those materials 
from public inspection; and (c) an explanation of how public disclosure 
of the information could result in substantial competitive harm. The 
request must show by a preponderance of the evidence that nondisclosure 
is consistent with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. 
Mere conclusory or generalized allegations cannot support a request for 
nondisclosure. In light of the Commission's desire for openness in its 
exemption petition review processes, if the Bureau determines that 
members of the public should have access to portions of a filing that 
the petitioner asserts are confidential, it may allow such access 
pursuant to a protective order. To help achieve such openness where a 
petitioner has sought confidentiality of certain information

[[Page 64594]]

submitted in support of its petition, the petitioner should, to the 
extent possible, include in its petition the non-sensitive supporting 
information contained in the confidential materials so that members of 
the public may review, consider, and comment on the petition.
    5. Comments and Oppositions. Comments on or oppositions to a 
petition must be filed electronically via ECFS at http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/begin?filedFrom=E. The ``ECFS Express'' form cannot be used 
for the filing of comments or oppositions. If the submission is sent to 
the Commission only by email, the Commission will upload the submission 
to ECFS. Comments or oppositions filed via ECFS must include ``13-318'' 
as the ``Proceeding Number'' on the ECFS form. In addition, filers must 
enter the four-digit case identifier number (e.g., ``CC-2345'') as the 
``File Number'' on the ECFS form. If a filer wishes to file an 
identical set of comments or oppositions via ECFS on multiple petitions 
that have been assigned more than one case identifier number, the 
comments or oppositions must be filed separately for each petition/case 
identifier number. In such a case, a different case identifier number 
will have to be entered as the ``File Number'' for each separate filing 
(e.g., ``CC-2345'' entered as the File Number for the first filing and 
``CC-2346'' entered as the File Number for the second filing and so on, 
even if the comments or oppositions being filed are identical to the 
first filing). Multiple case identifier numbers may not be entered as 
one ``File Number.''
    6. Replies. Replies to comments on or oppositions to a petition 
must be filed electronically via ECFS at http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/begin?filedFrom=E. The ``ECFS Express'' form cannot be used for 
this purpose. If the submission is sent to the Commission only by 
email, the Commission will upload the submission to ECFS. Replies must 
include ``13-318'' as the ``Proceeding Number'' and the four-digit case 
identifier number (e.g., ``CC-2345'') as the ``File Number'' in this 
proceeding. If a filer wishes to file an identical set of replies via 
ECFS on multiple petitions that have been assigned more than one case 
identifier number, the replies must be filed separately for each 
petition/case identifier number. In this case, a different case 
identifier number will have to be entered as the ``File Number'' for 
each separate filing (e.g., ``CC-2345'' entered as the File Number for 
the first filing and ``CC-2346'' entered as the File Number for the 
second filing and so on, even if the replies being filed are identical 
to the first filing). Multiple case identifier numbers may not be 
entered as one ``File Number.''
