General information concerning the EPA SAB can be found at http://www.epa.gov/sab. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SAB was established pursuant to the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration Authorization Act (ERDDAA), codified at 42 U.S.C. 4365, to provide independent scientific and technical advice to the Administrator on the technical basis for Agency positions and regulations. The SAB is a Federal Advisory Committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C., App. 2. The SAB and its panels comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies. Pursuant to FACA and EPA policy, notice is hereby given that the SAB Lake Erie Phosphorus Objectives Review Panel will hold a public face-to-face meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to conduct a consultation. In a consultation, panels develop advice on technical questions to the agency on projects that are in the early stages before EPA begins substantive work on the project. The SAB Panel will provide advice through the chartered SAB on the ensemble modeling approach the EPA is using to develop preliminary binational phosphorous objectives, loading targets and allocations for the nearshore and offshore waters to achieve the Lake Ecosystem Objectives for Lake Erie. Background: EPA Region 5 is coleading a binational workgroup to develop and implement the Nutrients Annex (‘‘Annex 4’’) of the 2012 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA) in accordance with Article 3(b)(i) of the GLWQA. Under Annex 4, the United States and Canada are charged with establishing binational FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68441 Substance Objectives for phosphorus concentrations, loading targets and allocations for the nearshore and offshore waters of Lake Erie by February 2016. The general approach is to use an ensemble of Lake Erie ecosystem models to compute appropriate load-response relationships for eutrophication response indicators of concern. EPA Region 5 requested an SAB consultation (i.e., early advice) on the appropriateness of modeling approaches to meet the GLWQA Lake Ecosystem Objectives. EPA also requested a subsequent review of the modeled phosphorus targets and loads to obtain advice on (1) whether the process used to develop targets was appropriate to meet the Lake Ecosystem Objectives as defined in the GLWQA and (2) whether the modeled results reflect the best available information on the phosphorous sources and trophic status of Lake Erie. The SAB Staff Office anticipates that the Lake Erie Phosphorus Objectives Review Panel will conduct the subsequent review in 2015. For technical information concerning this effort under the GLWQA Annex 4 please contact Ms. Santina Wortman, Water Division, US EPA Region 5, 77 West Jackson Boulevard (WW–16J), Chicago, Illinois 60604, phone (312) 353–8319.

AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Nov 14, 2014 Jkt 235001 ACTION: Notice; of intent to establish. In accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act, the purpose of this notice is to announce that a Federal Advisory Committee, known as the ‘‘Task Force on Optimal Public Safety Answering Pont (PSAP) Architecture’’ (hereinafter ‘‘Task Force’’), is being established. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Furth, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB), 202–418–0632, email: david.furth@ fcc.gov; Timothy May, FCC, PSHSB, 202–418–1463, email: timothy.may@ fcc.gov. SUMMARY: On August 8, 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted a Second Report and Order and Third Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in PS Docket No. 11–153 and PS Docket No. 10–255 (available at http://www.fcc.gov/ document/fcc-adopts-text-911-rules), wherein it directed the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau to establish the task force. The Committee Management Secretariat, General Services Administration concurs with the establishment of the Task Force. There are approximately 6,800 PSAPs in operation across the nation. This large number of PSAPs potentially increases the costs and resources needed from the communications industry, public safety community, and state, local and tribal governments. Further, public safety communications systems are converting to Next Generation 911 (NG911) in the coming years, which may further add to the costs and resource requirements of the nation’s PSAPs. In addition, a number of states continue to divert critical E911 funding from its intended purposes to unrelated functions. To address these issues, the Task Force shall examine the current structure and architecture of the nation’s PSAPs in order to determine whether additional consolidation of PSAP facilities and architecture would promote greater efficiency of operations, safety of life, and cost containment, while retaining needed integration with local first responder dispatch and support. The duties of the Task Force will be to study and report findings and recommendations on the following issues, including optimal PSAP system and network configuration in terms of emergency communications efficiency, performance, and operations functionality; cost projections for conversion to and annual operation of SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 PSAPs that incorporate such optimal system design; comparative cost projections for annual maintenance of all existing PSAPs annually and upgrading them to NG911; recommendations on ways to ensure states use E911 funding for their intended purpose; and whether states that divert E911 funds should be ineligible to participate on various FCC councils, committees, and working groups. The Task Force will present its initial findings and recommendations to the Commission no later than April 30, 2015 unless such period is extended by consent of the Chairman of the Commission (or his designee).
