ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes to approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the District of Columbia, the State of Maryland, and the Commonwealth of Virginia (collectively, the States). The submittals are comprised of the 2011 base year emissions inventories for the Washington, DC-MD-VA nonattainment area for the 2008 8-hour ozone national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS). In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the States’ SIP submittals as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule and EPA’s Technical Support Document (TSD) prepared in support of this rulemaking action.

AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\13MYP1.SGM 13MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 92 / Wednesday, May 13, 2015 / Proposed Rules ACTION: Proposed rule. This proposed rule augments 40 CFR part 1600, which governs the administration of the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB). The proposed rule adds a requirement for the chairperson to add notation votes that have been calendared for public discussion to the agenda of a public meeting within 90 days of the calendared notation vote. The proposed rule also adds a requirement for the chairperson to conduct a minimum of four public meetings per year in Washington, DC. Following publication of this proposed rule, the CSB welcomes and will consider public comment, and then proceed to a final rule. DATES: Written comments must be received on or before June 12, 2015. ADDRESSES: You may submit written comments concerning this proposed rule via U.S. mail or email. Written comments may be sent by U.S. mail to Kara Wenzel, Assistant General Counsel, Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, 2175 K Street NW., Suite 400, Washington, DC, 20037. You may submit electronic comments to: kara.wenzel@csb.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kara Wenzel, CSB Assistant General Counsel, 202–261–7625. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposed rule will promote increased transparency and accountability for Board activities. It aligns with the Open Government principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration, as outlined in the Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government (74 FR 4685, Jan. 26, 2009). The Board conducts some of its business through a process of notation voting. In notation voting, Board Members may vote to approve, disapprove, or calendar a notation item for discussion at a public meeting. The addition of a rule for the consideration of calendared notation votes within 90 days of the calendaring action will ensure that calendaring is used in the way it was intended. The addition will allow Board Members to use calendaring to prompt timely public discussion on a topic before they vote on it, at their discretion. It has the added effect of providing an additional opportunity for stakeholder input on Board activities. The other portion of the new proposed rule will require the CSB chairperson to schedule at least four public meetings in Washington, DC, each year. It will permit other Board Members to add items for discussion to the agendas of such CSB public meetings. It will also ensure that these asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 May 12, 2015 Jkt 235001 meetings consider, at a minimum, calendared notation votes, current investigations and other important mission-related activities, and quarterly agency action plan progress. This portion of the proposed rule is intended to increase the transparency of Board actions, to promote the Board’s accountability to the public, and to ensure regular, relevant feedback is received from stakeholders related to the agency’s mission work. Statutory Authority: 5 U.S.C. 301, 552(a)(1); 42 U.S.C. 7412(r)(6)(N). Regulatory Impact Administrative Procedure Act: 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A), provides that when regulations involve matters of agency organization, procedure, or practice, the agency may publish regulations in final form. Because this proposed rule is intended to promote public participation and transparency for Board activities, the Board will accept and consider public comments up to 30 days before issuing a final rule. Regulatory Flexibility Act: The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires that a rule that has a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, small businesses, or small organizations must include an initial regulatory flexibility analysis describing the regulation’s impact on such small entities. This analysis need not be undertaken if the agency has certified that the regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 5 U.S.C. 605(b). The CSB has considered the impact of this rule under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, and certifies that a final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Paperwork Reduction Act: The CSB reviewed this proposed rule to determine whether it invokes issues that would subject it to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). While the PRA applies to agencies and collections of information conducted or sponsored by the CSB, the Act, 44 U.S.C. 3518(c), exempts collections of information that occur ‘‘during the conduct of . . . an administrative action, investigation, or audit involving an agency against specific individuals or entities,’’ except for investigations or audits ‘‘undertaken with reference to a category of individual or entities such as a class of licensees or an entire industry.’’ The rule proposed below fits squarely within this exemption, as it deals entirely with administrative matters internal to the agency. Therefore, we have determined that the PRA does not apply to this rule.

SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 May 12, 2015 Jkt 235001 Interested parties should submit comments to NASA at the address below on or before July 13, 2015 to be considered in formulation of the final rule. ADDRESSES: Interested parties may submit comments, identified by RIN number 2700–AE14 via the Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments. Comments may also be submitted to Andrew O’Rourke (Room 5L32), NASA Headquarters, Office of Procurement, Contract and Grant Policy Division, Washington, DC 20546. Comments may also be submitted to Andrew O’Rourke via email at andrew.orourke@NASA.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrew O’Rourke, NASA Office of Procurement, Contract and Grant Policy Division, 202–358–4560, email: andrew.orourke@nasa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: A. Background NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) clause 1852.242–72, Observance of Legal Holidays, is included in Agency contracts where contractor performance is to be performed on a NASA facility. It was intended to identify dates that Government employees would not be available and provide notification to contractors of those dates considering that the absence of Government employees might impact contractor performance or contractor access to NASA facilities. Further, the same clause has two alternates, the first addresses contractors who are denied access to NASA workspaces within a NASA facility and the second addresses other instances, such as weather and safety emergencies, which could result in contractors being denied access to the entire NASA facility. Recent events, especially the Government shut-down during October 2013, have revealed a need for NASA to be more specific and to differentiate between these two conditions when contractor employees may be denied access to NASA workspaces or the entire NASA facility. The fact that Government employees may not be at a NASA facility is not an automatic reason for contractor personnel not to be required to be present at their required NASA workspace on a NASA facility. Unless a contractor is denied access to the NASA facility, contractors are expected to perform in accordance with their contractual requirements. This proposed NFS change provides clarity and information beneficial to NASA contractors that are denied access to a NASA facility when a NASA facility is PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 closed to all personnel. Specifically, the change would delete the prescription at NFS 1842.7001, Observance of Legal Holidays, in its entirety, and clause 1852.242–72, Observance of Legal Holidays, with alternates, and replace it with the prescription at NFS 1842.7001 Denied Access to NASA Facilities and clause 1852.242–72, Denied Access to NASA Facilities. The clause would be included in solicitations and contracts where contractor personnel would be required to work onsite at a NASA facility. B. 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 proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. C. Regulatory Flexibility Act NASA 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. This proposed rule attempts to provide clarity and information beneficial to NASA contractors that are denied access to a NASA facility when a NASA facility is closed. This proposed rule imposes no new reporting requirements. This proposed rule does not duplicate, overlap, or conflict with any other Federal rules. No alternatives were identified that would meet the objectives of this proposed rule. NASA invites comments from small business concerns and other interested parties on the expected impact of this proposed rule on small entities. NASA will also consider comments from small entities concerning the existing regulations in subparts affected by this proposed rule in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (RIN number 2700–AE14) in correspondence. D.

Organization and Functions of the Chemical Safety and Hazard 
Investigation Board

AGENCY: Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board.

[[Page 27277]]


ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: This proposed rule augments 40 CFR part 1600, which governs 
the administration of the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation 
Board (CSB). The proposed rule adds a requirement for the chairperson 
to add notation votes that have been calendared for public discussion 
to the agenda of a public meeting within 90 days of the calendared 
notation vote. The proposed rule also adds a requirement for the 
chairperson to conduct a minimum of four public meetings per year in 
Washington, DC. Following publication of this proposed rule, the CSB 
welcomes and will consider public comment, and then proceed to a final 
rule.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before June 12, 2015.

ADDRESSES: You may submit written comments concerning this proposed 
rule via U.S. mail or email. Written comments may be sent by U.S. mail 
to Kara Wenzel, Assistant General Counsel, Chemical Safety and Hazard 
Investigation Board, 2175 K Street NW., Suite 400, Washington, DC, 
20037. You may submit electronic comments to: kara.wenzel@csb.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kara Wenzel, CSB Assistant General 
Counsel, 202-261-7625.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposed rule will promote increased 
transparency and accountability for Board activities. It aligns with 
the Open Government principles of transparency, participation, and 
collaboration, as outlined in the Memorandum on Transparency and Open 
Government (74 FR 4685, Jan. 26, 2009). The Board conducts some of its 
business through a process of notation voting. In notation voting, 
Board Members may vote to approve, disapprove, or calendar a notation 
item for discussion at a public meeting. The addition of a rule for the 
consideration of calendared notation votes within 90 days of the 
calendaring action will ensure that calendaring is used in the way it 
was intended. The addition will allow Board Members to use calendaring 
to prompt timely public discussion on a topic before they vote on it, 
at their discretion. It has the added effect of providing an additional 
opportunity for stakeholder input on Board activities.
    The other portion of the new proposed rule will require the CSB 
chairperson to schedule at least four public meetings in Washington, 
DC, each year. It will permit other Board Members to add items for 
discussion to the agendas of such CSB public meetings. It will also 
ensure that these meetings consider, at a minimum, calendared notation 
votes, current investigations and other important mission-related 
activities, and quarterly agency action plan progress. This portion of 
the proposed rule is intended to increase the transparency of Board 
actions, to promote the Board's accountability to the public, and to 
ensure regular, relevant feedback is received from stakeholders related 
to the agency's mission work.

    Statutory Authority: 5 U.S.C. 301, 552(a)(1); 42 U.S.C. 
7412(r)(6)(N).

Regulatory Impact

    Administrative Procedure Act: 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A), provides that 
when regulations involve matters of agency organization, procedure, or 
practice, the agency may publish regulations in final form. Because 
this proposed rule is intended to promote public participation and 
transparency for Board activities, the Board will accept and consider 
public comments up to 30 days before issuing a final rule.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act: The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 
U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires that a rule that has a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, small 
businesses, or small organizations must include an initial regulatory 
flexibility analysis describing the regulation's impact on such small 
entities. This analysis need not be undertaken if the agency has 
certified that the regulation will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities. 5 U.S.C. 605(b). The 
CSB has considered the impact of this rule under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, and certifies that a final rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
    Paperwork Reduction Act: The CSB reviewed this proposed rule to 
determine whether it invokes issues that would subject it to the 
Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). While the PRA applies to agencies and 
collections of information conducted or sponsored by the CSB, the Act, 
44 U.S.C. 3518(c), exempts collections of information that occur 
``during the conduct of . . . an administrative action, investigation, 
or audit involving an agency against specific individuals or 
entities,'' except for investigations or audits ``undertaken with 
reference to a category of individual or entities such as a class of 
licensees or an entire industry.'' The rule proposed below fits 
squarely within this exemption, as it deals entirely with 
administrative matters internal to the agency. Therefore, we have 
determined that the PRA does not apply to this rule.
    Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995: The proposed rule does not 
require the preparation of an assessment statement in accordance with 
the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1531. This proposed 
rule does not include a federal mandate that may result in the annual 
expenditure by state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, 
or by the private sector, of more than the annual threshold established 
by the Act ($128 million in 2006, adjusted annually for inflation).
