Pursuant to section 12307 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Pub. L. 133– 79), the EPA is establishing a new agriculture-related standing committee of the SAB. The SAB Agricultural Science Committee will provide advice to the chartered SAB on matters referred to the Board that EPA and the Board, in consultation with the Secretary of Agriculture, determine will have a significant direct impact on farming and agriculture-related industries. Initial appointments to the committee will be for a mix of 2 and 3 year terms to ensure rotation and staggered terms for future years. Expertise Sought: The SAB Staff Office is seeking nominations of experts to serve on the SAB Agricultural Science Committee with demonstrated expertise in agriculture-related sciences, including: Agricultural economics, including valuation of ecosystem goods and services; agricultural chemistry; agricultural engineering; agronomy, including soil science; aquaculture science; biofuels engineering; biotechnology; crop and animal science; environmental chemistry; forestry; and hydrology. For further information, please contact Ms. Sanzone, DFO, as identified above. Selection criteria include: —Demonstrated scientific credentials and disciplinary expertise in relevant fields; —Willingness to commit time to the committee and demonstrated ability to work constructively and effectively on committees; —Background and experiences that would contribute to the diversity of perspectives on the committee, e.g., geographic, economic, social, cultural, educational backgrounds, and professional affiliations; and —For the committee as a whole, consideration of the collective breadth and depth of scientific expertise; and a balance of scientific perspectives. As the committee undertakes specific advisory activities, the SAB Staff Office will consider two additional criteria for each new activity: absence of financial conflicts of interest and absence of an appearance of a loss of impartiality. How To Submit Nominations: Any interested person or organization may nominate qualified persons to be considered for appointment to this advisory committee. Individuals may self-nominate. Nominations should be submitted in electronic format (preferred) following the instructions for ‘‘Nominating Experts to the SAB Agricultural Science Committee’’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:48 Dec 09, 2014 Jkt 235001 provided on the SAB Web site. Instructions can be accessed through the ‘‘Nomination of Experts’’ link on the blue navigational bar on the SAB Web site at http://www.epa.gov/sab. To be considered, all nominations should include the information requested. EPA values and welcomes diversity. In an effort to obtain nominations of diverse candidates, EPA encourages nominations of women and men of all racial and ethnic groups. The following information should be provided on the nomination form: Contact information about the person making the nomination; contact information about the nominee; the disciplinary and specific areas of expertise of the nominee; the nominee’s curriculum vita; and a biographical sketch of the nominee indicating current position, educational background; research activities; sources of any research funding over the last two years; and recent service on other national advisory committees or national professional organizations. Persons having questions about the nomination procedures, or who are unable to submit nominations through the SAB Web site, should contact the Designated Federal Officer for the committee, as identified above. Non-electronic submissions must follow the same format and contain the same information as the electronic form. The SAB Staff Office will acknowledge receipt of nominations. Candidates invited to serve will be asked to submit the ‘‘Confidential Financial Disclosure Form for Special Government Employees Serving on Federal Advisory Committees at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’’ (EPA Form 3110–48). This confidential form allows the EPA to determine whether there is a statutory conflict between that person’s public responsibilities as a Special Government Employee and private interests and activities, or the appearance of a loss of impartiality, as defined by Federal regulation.

In addition, the Commission will permit parties to remove metadata containing confidential or privileged information, and the Commission will also not require parties to file electronically ex parte notices that contain confidential information. The Commission will, however, require a redacted version to be filed electronically at the same time the paper filing is submitted, and that the redacted version must be machinereadable whenever technically possible. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: The Commission’s rules, under 47 CFR 1.1206, require that a public record be made of ex parte presentations (i.e., written presentations not served on all parties to the proceeding or oral presentations as to which all parties have not been given notice and an opportunity to be present) to decision-making personnel in ‘‘permit-but-disclose’’ proceedings, such as notice-and-comment rulemakings and declaratory ruling proceedings. On February 2, 2011, the FCC released a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, GC Docket Number 10–43, FCC 11–11, which amended and reformed the Commission’s rules on ex parte presentations (47 CFR 1.1206(b)(2)) made in the course of Commission rulemakings and other permit-butdisclose proceedings. The modifications to the existing rules adopted in this Report and Order require that parties file more descriptive summaries of their ex parte contacts, by ensuring that other parties and the public have an adequate opportunity to review and respond to information submitted ex parte, and by improving the FCC’s oversight and enforcement of the ex parte rules. The modified ex parte rules which contain information collection requirements which OMB approved on December 6, 2011, are as follows: (1) Ex parte notices will be required for all oral ex parte presentations in permit-but-disclose proceedings, not just for those presentations that involve new information or arguments not already in the record; (2) If an oral ex parte presentation is limited to material already in the written record, the notice must contain either a succinct summary of the matters discussed or a citation to the page or paragraph number in the party’s written submission(s) where the matters discussed can be found; (3) Notices for all ex parte presentations must include the name of the person(s) who made the ex parte presentation as well as a list of all persons attending or otherwise participating in the meeting at E:\FR\FM\10DEN1.SGM 10DEN1
