SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On July 31, 2014, (79 FR 44494), MSHA published a proposed rule, to amend its civil penalty regulation to simplify the criteria, which will promote consistency, objectivity, and efficiency in the proposed assessment of civil penalties and facilitate the resolution of enforcement issues. The proposal would place a greater emphasis on the more serious safety and health conditions and provide improved safety and health for miners. MSHA is also proposing alternatives that would address the scope and applicability of its civil penalty regulation. The comment period was scheduled to close on September 29, 2014. MSHA extended the comment period until December 3, 2014 (79 FR 55408) in response to commenters. II.
