SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On July 31, 2014, MSHA published a proposed rule (79 FR 44494) 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. In response to requests from the public, MSHA held public hearings on December 4, 2014, in Arlington, Virginia, and on December 9, 2014, in Denver, Colorado. The post-hearing comment period was scheduled to close on January 9, 2015. II. Public Hearings In response to requests from the public, MSHA will hold two additional public hearings on the proposed rule to provide the public an opportunity to present their views on this rulemaking. MSHA is holding the hearings on the following dates at the locations indicated: Date Location Thursday, February 5, 2015 .................... Sheraton Birmingham Hotel, 2101 Richard Arrington Jr. Boulevard North, Birmingham, AL 35203. Embassy Suites Chicago—Downtown, 600 N. State Street, Chicago, IL 60654 ..... tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Thursday, February 12, 2015 .................. The hearings will begin with an opening statement from MSHA, followed by oral presentations from members of the public. The public hearings will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end no later than 5:00 p.m., or earlier if the last person presenting testimony has spoken. Persons and organizations wishing to speak are encouraged to notify MSHA in advance for scheduling purposes. Persons do not have to make a written request to speak; however, MSHA will give priority to persons who have notified us, in advance, of their intent to speak and will provide others an opportunity to present oral testimony if time allows. MSHA requests that parties making presentations at the hearings submit them no later than five days prior to the hearing. Testimony, presentations, and accompanying documentation will be included in the rulemaking record. The hearings will be conducted in an informal manner. Formal rules of evidence and cross examination will not apply. The hearing panel may ask questions of speakers and speakers may ask questions of the hearing panel. Verbatim transcripts of the proceedings will be prepared and made a part of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:21 Dec 30, 2014 Jkt 235001 rulemaking record. Copies of the transcripts will be available to the public on http://www.regulations.gov and on MSHA’s Web site at http:// www.msha.gov/tscripts.htm. Commenters are requested to be specific in their comments and submit detailed rationale and supporting documentation for any comment or suggested alternative as MSHA cannot sufficiently evaluate general comments. All comments must be received or postmarked by March 12, 2015. Dated: December 23, 2014. Joseph A. Main, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health.

ACTION: Announcement of public hearings. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing three public hearings for the proposed rule titled, ‘‘National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ozone,’’ that was published in the Federal Register on December 17, 2014. The hearings will be held in Washington, DC, Arlington, Texas, and Sacramento, California. Based on its review of the air quality criteria for ozone (O3) and related photochemical oxidants and national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for O3, the EPA proposes to make revisions to the primary and secondary NAAQS for O3 to provide requisite SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\31DEP1.SGM 31DEP1 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 250 / Wednesday, December 31, 2014 / Proposed Rules protection of public health and welfare, respectively. The EPA is proposing to revise the primary standard to a level within the range of 0.065 to 0.070 parts per million (ppm), and to revise the secondary standard to within the range of 0.065 to 0.070 ppm, which air quality analyses indicate would provide air quality, in terms of 3-year average W126 index values, at or below a range of 13– 17 ppm-hours. The EPA proposes to make corresponding revisions in data handling conventions for O3 and conforming changes to the Air Quality Index; to revise regulations for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration program to add a transition provision for certain applications; and to propose schedules and convey information related to implementing any revised standards. The EPA is proposing changes to the O3 monitoring seasons, the Federal Reference Method (FRM) for monitoring O3 in the ambient air, Federal Equivalent Method procedures for testing, and the Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Stations network. Along with proposing exceptional event schedules related to implementing any revised O3 standards, the EPA is proposing to apply this same schedule approach to other future revised NAAQS and to remove obsolete regulatory language for expired exceptional event deadlines. The EPA is proposing to make minor changes to the procedures and time periods for evaluating potential FRMs and equivalent methods (including making the requirements for nitrogen dioxide consistent with the requirements for O3) and to remove an obsolete requirement for the annual submission of documentation by manufacturers of certain particulate matter monitors. DATES: The public hearings will be held on January 29, 2015, in Washington, DC and Arlington, Texas, and on February 2, 2015, in Sacramento, California.

National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ozone

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Announcement of public hearings.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing three 
public hearings for the proposed rule titled, ``National Ambient Air 
Quality Standards for Ozone,'' that was published in the Federal 
Register on December 17, 2014. The hearings will be held in Washington, 
DC, Arlington, Texas, and Sacramento, California.
    Based on its review of the air quality criteria for ozone 
(O3) and related photochemical oxidants and national ambient 
air quality standards (NAAQS) for O3, the EPA proposes to 
make revisions to the primary and secondary NAAQS for O3 to 
provide requisite

[[Page 78751]]

protection of public health and welfare, respectively. The EPA is 
proposing to revise the primary standard to a level within the range of 
0.065 to 0.070 parts per million (ppm), and to revise the secondary 
standard to within the range of 0.065 to 0.070 ppm, which air quality 
analyses indicate would provide air quality, in terms of 3-year average 
W126 index values, at or below a range of 13-17 ppm-hours. The EPA 
proposes to make corresponding revisions in data handling conventions 
for O3 and conforming changes to the Air Quality Index; to 
revise regulations for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration 
program to add a transition provision for certain applications; and to 
propose schedules and convey information related to implementing any 
revised standards. The EPA is proposing changes to the O3 
monitoring seasons, the Federal Reference Method (FRM) for monitoring 
O3 in the ambient air, Federal Equivalent Method procedures 
for testing, and the Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Stations 
network.
    Along with proposing exceptional event schedules related to 
implementing any revised O3 standards, the EPA is proposing 
to apply this same schedule approach to other future revised NAAQS and 
to remove obsolete regulatory language for expired exceptional event 
deadlines. The EPA is proposing to make minor changes to the procedures 
and time periods for evaluating potential FRMs and equivalent methods 
(including making the requirements for nitrogen dioxide consistent with 
the requirements for O3) and to remove an obsolete 
requirement for the annual submission of documentation by manufacturers 
of certain particulate matter monitors.

DATES: The public hearings will be held on January 29, 2015, in 
Washington, DC and Arlington, Texas, and on February 2, 2015, in 
Sacramento, California. Please refer to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for 
additional information on the public hearings.
