Download as PDF 8278 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 31 / Tuesday, February 17, 2015 / Proposed Rules rule this spring. If EPA has not yet taken final action to reclassify the DFW area for the 1997 ozone standard before a final rulemaking revoking the 1997 ozone NAAQS for all purposes is effective, and that rulemaking is finalized as proposed with respect to EPA’s obligation concerning reclassification of areas for the revoked standard, then EPA will not finalize this proposed reclassification for DFW. However, the DFW area will still be subject to appropriate ‘‘antibacksliding’’ requirements for the 1997 ozone NAAQS as established in any final rule EPA may promulgate in connection with any revocation of the 1997 standard. Anti-backsliding provides protection against degradation of air quality (e.g., the DFW area does not ‘‘backslide’’) and ensures the area continues to make progress toward attainment of the new, more stringent NAAQS. Anti-backsliding also ensures there is consistency with the ozone NAAQS implementation framework outlined in subpart 2 of Part D of the CAA (78 FR 34178, 34211). tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS V. Proposed Action Pursuant to section 181(b)(2) of the Act, the EPA is proposing to determine, based on certified, quality-assured monitoring data for 2010–2012 that the DFW area did not attain the 1997 ozone standard by the applicable June 15, 2013 attainment deadline. If the EPA finalizes this determination, upon the effective date of the final determination the DFW 9-county nonattainment area will be reclassified by operation of law as a Severe ozone nonattainment area under the 1997 ozone standard. Pursuant to section 182(i) of the Act, the EPA is also proposing the schedule for submittal of the SIP revisions required for Severe areas once the DFW area is reclassified. The EPA is proposing that Texas submit to the EPA the required SIP revisions for the Severe attainment demonstration, RFP and for all other Severe area measures required under sections 172, 182(c), 182(d) and 185 of the Act no later than one year after the effective date of the final rulemaking for this reclassification. VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under section 181(b)(2) of the CAA, a determination of nonattainment is a factual determination based upon air quality considerations and the resulting reclassification must occur by operation of law. A determination of nonattainment and the resulting reclassification of a nonattainment area by operation of law under section 181(b)(2) does not in and of itself create VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Feb 13, 2015 Jkt 235001 any new requirements, but rather applies the requirements contained in the Clean Air Act. For these reasons, this proposed action: • Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993); • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.); • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.); • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4); • Does not have federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); • Is not subject to requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on any Indian reservation land or in any other area where EPA or an Indian tribe has demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian country, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), nor will it impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS I. Background GSA is proposing to amend the GSAR to update the text and clauses regarding Subpart 523.3-Hazardous Materials Identification and Material Safety Data. GSA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 74 FR 11889 on March 20, 2009 to update the text and clauses regarding Hazardous Materials Identification and Material Safety Data. No comments were received in response to the proposed rule. This case is issued as a second proposed rule due to the length of time since the original proposed rule was published in 2009 and updates to the regulations referenced in the General Services Administration Manual (GSAM) Subpart 523.3. This proposed rule changes the title of GSAR part 523 to ‘‘Environment, Energy and Water Efficiency, Renewable Energy Technologies, Occupational Safety, and Drug-Free Workplace’’, to correspond to the title in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) part 23. The title for GSAR Subpart 523.3 is changed to ‘‘Hazardous Material Identification and Material Safety Data’’ to be consistent with the corresponding FAR subpart. In addition, this rule adds a new hazardous materials GSAR clause 552.223–73. GSAR clause 552.223–73, Preservation, Packaging, Packing, Marking and Labeling of Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) for Shipments is added to require compliance by contractors regarding preservation, packaging, packing, marking and labeling of hazardous materials. This clause is also added to the provision and clause matrix. In addition, the GSAR clause 552.212–72, Contract Terms and Conditions Required to Implement Statutes or Executive Orders Applicable to GSA Acquisition of Commercial Items, is updated to include the new hazardous material clause 552.223–73. II. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Feb 13, 2015 Jkt 235001 approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. III. Regulatory Flexibility Act GSA does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because there are no substantive changes. Therefore, an Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis (IRFA) has not been performed. GSA invites comments from small business concerns and other interested parties on the expected impact of this rule on small entities. GSA will also consider comments from small entities concerning the existing regulations in subparts affected by the rule in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (GSAR Case 2006–G506), in correspondence. IV.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In January 2011, NMFS implemented a trawl rationalization program, a type of catch share program, for the Pacific coast groundfish fishery’s trawl fleet. The program was adopted through Amendment 20 to the FMP and consists of three sectors: An IFQ program for the shorebased trawl fleet (including vessels targeting whiting and non-whiting with midwater trawl gear); and cooperative (coop) programs for the at-sea mothership (MS) and catcher/processor (C/P) trawl fleets (whiting only). Since implementation, the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) and NMFS have been working to implement additional regulatory changes to further improve the trawl rationalization program and respond to industry requests. Changing the midwater trawl fishery season date would further increase consistency in the season start date along the coast and between the shorebased and at-sea midwater trawl fleets. This rule would revise the Shorebased IFQ Program regulations to change the primary season opening date for the midwater trawl fishery (whiting and non-whiting) to May 15 north of 40°30′ N. lat. to the U.S./Canada border. This would move the season a month earlier off Washington and Oregon and a month and half later off northern California (north of 40°30′ N. lat.). The Council discussed the season date change at its March and April 2012 meetings, with final Council recommendations to NMFS during the September 2012 Council meeting.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    GSA is proposing to amend the GSAR to update the text and clauses 
regarding Subpart 523.3-Hazardous Materials Identification and Material 
Safety Data.
    GSA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 74 FR 
11889 on March 20, 2009 to update the text and clauses regarding 
Hazardous Materials Identification and Material Safety Data. No 
comments were received in response to the proposed rule. This case is 
issued as a second proposed rule due to the length of time since the 
original proposed rule was published in 2009 and updates to the 
regulations referenced in the General Services Administration Manual 
(GSAM) Subpart 523.3.
    This proposed rule changes the title of GSAR part 523 to 
``Environment, Energy and Water Efficiency, Renewable Energy 
Technologies, Occupational Safety, and Drug-Free Workplace'', to 
correspond to the title in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) part 
23. The title for GSAR Subpart 523.3 is changed to ``Hazardous Material 
Identification and Material Safety Data'' to be consistent with the 
corresponding FAR subpart.
    In addition, this rule adds a new hazardous materials GSAR clause 
552.223-73. GSAR clause 552.223-73, Preservation, Packaging, Packing, 
Marking and Labeling of Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) for Shipments is 
added to require compliance by contractors regarding preservation, 
packaging, packing, marking and labeling of hazardous materials. This 
clause is also added to the provision and clause matrix.
    In addition, the GSAR clause 552.212-72, Contract Terms and 
Conditions Required to Implement Statutes or Executive Orders 
Applicable to GSA Acquisition of Commercial Items, is updated to 
include the new hazardous material clause 552.223-73.

II. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule 
under 5 U.S.C. 804.

III. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    GSA does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the 
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., 
because there are no substantive changes. Therefore, an Initial 
Regulatory Flexibility Analysis (IRFA) has not been performed. GSA 
invites comments from small business concerns and other interested 
parties on the expected impact of this rule on small entities.
    GSA will also consider comments from small entities concerning the 
existing regulations in subparts affected by the rule in accordance 
with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments 
separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (GSAR Case 2006-G506), in 
correspondence.

IV. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The proposed rule does not contain any information collection 
requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and 
Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
