Download as PDF 41040 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 134 / Tuesday, July 14, 2015 / Notices biofuel producer seeking to generate RINs for non-grandfathered volumes of biofuel produced from cottonseed oil will first need to submit a petition requesting EPA’s evaluation of their new renewable fuel pathway pursuant to 40 CFR 80.1416 of the RFS regulations, and include all of the information specified at 40 CFR 80.1416(b)(1). Because EPA is evaluating the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production and transport of cottonseed oil feedstock through this action and comment process, petitions requesting EPA’s evaluation of biofuel pathways involving cottonseed oil feedstock will not have to include the information for new feedstocks specified at 40 CFR 80.1416(b)(2).23 Based on our evaluation of the lifecycle GHG emissions attributable to the production and transport of cottonseed oil feedstock, EPA anticipates that fuel produced from cottonseed oil feedstock through the same transesterification or hydrotreating process technologies that EPA evaluated for the March 2010 RFS rule for biofuel derived from soybean oil and the March 2013 RFS rule for biofuel derived from camelina oil would qualify for biomassbased diesel (D-code 4) renewable identification numbers (RINs) or advanced biofuel (D-code 5) RINs.24 However, EPA will evaluate petitions for fuel produced from cottonseed oil feedstock on a case-by-case basis. III. Summary asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES EPA invites public comment on our analysis of GHG emissions associated with the production and transport of cottonseed oil as a feedstock for biofuel production. EPA will consider public comments received when evaluating the lifecycle GHG emissions of biofuel production pathways described in petitions received pursuant to 40 CFR 23 For information on how to submit a petition for biofuel produced from cottonseed oil see EPA’s Web page titled ‘‘How to Submit a Complete Petition’’ (http://www.epa.gov/otaq/fuels/ renewablefuels/new-pathways/how-to-submit.htm) including the document on that Web page titled ‘‘How to Prepare a Complete Petition.’’ Petitions for biofuel produced from cottonseed oil should include all of the applicable information outlined in Section 3 of the ‘‘How to Prepare a Complete Petition’’ document, but they do not need to provide the information outlined in section 3(F)(2) (Information for New Feedstocks). 24 The transesterification process that EPA evaluated for the March 2010 RFS rule for biofuel derived from soybean oil feedstock is described in section 2.4.7.3 (Biodiesel) of the Regulatory Impact Analysis for the March 2010 RFS rule (EPA–420– R–10–006). The hydrotreating process that EPA evaluated for the March 2013 rule for biofuel derived from camelina oil feedstock is described in section II.A.3.b of the March 2013 rule (78 FR 14190).

ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or the Commission) invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collection. Comments are requested concerning: whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; the accuracy of the Commission’s burden estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees. The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. DATES: Written PRA comments should be submitted on or before September 14, 2015. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:09 Jul 13, 2015 Jkt 235001 time allowed by this notice, you should advise the contact listed below as soon as possible. ADDRESSES: Direct all PRA comments to Nicole Ongele, FCC, via email PRA@ fcc.gov and to Nicole.Ongele@fcc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For additional information about the information collection, contact Nicole Ongele at (202) 418–2991. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 3060–0824. Title: Service Provider and Billed Entity Identification Number and Contact Information Form. Form Number: FCC Form 498. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit and not-for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents: 26,000 respondents; 26,000 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 0.75 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirements and third party disclosure requirements. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 151–154 and 254 the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Total Annual Burden: 19,500 hours. Total Annual Cost: No cost. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission notes that the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) who administers the universal service program must preserve the confidentiality of all data obtained from respondents and contributors to the universal service programs, must not use the data except for purposes of administering the universal service programs, and must not disclose data in company-specific form unless directed to do so by the Commission. With respect to the FCC Form 498, USAC shall publish each participant’s name, SPIN, and contact information via USAC’s Web site. All other information, including financial institution account numbers or routing information, shall remain confidential. Needs and Uses: One of the functions of the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) is to provide a means for the billing, collection and disbursement of funds for the universal service support mechanisms. On October 1998, the OMB approved FCC Form 498, the ‘‘Service Provider Information Form’’ to enable USAC to collect service provider name and address, telephone number, Federal PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 41041 Employer Identification Number (EIN), contact names, contact telephone numbers, and remittance information. FCC Form 498 enables participants to request a Service Provider Identification Number (SPIN) and provides the official record for participation in the universal service support mechanisms. The remittance information provided by participants on FCC Form 498 enables USAC to make payments to participants in the universal service support mechanisms. The following proposed revisions have been made to the FCC Form 498 for which we seek OMB approval: • Form name changed to ‘‘Service Provider and Billed Entity Identification Number and Contact Information Form’’; • Added an additional field in block 3 for a company’s Federal Registration Number (FRN); • Added a column for the Study Area Code Company Name in block 8; • Added the ability for a carrier to designate an alternate bank account for the payment of BEAR funds in block 11; • Added a box in block 1 and a supplemental information sheet to allow respondents to include information about affiliates; • Updated the Principal Communications Types in block 14 to include additional business types as listed on the FCC Form 499–A; and • Added a box after every program on the form that will allow service providers to cease participation in the associated program without having to deactivate their entire SPIN. Corresponding adjustments were made to the instructions to reflect the proposed changes to the FCC Form 498. The information collected on the FCC Form 498 is used by USAC to disburse federal universal service support consistent with the specifications of eligible participants in the universal service programs. FCC Form 498 submissions also provide USAC with updated contact information so that USAC can contact universal service fund participants when necessary. Without such information, USAC would not be able to distribute support to the proper entities and this would prevent the Commission from fulfilling its statutory responsibilities under the Act to preserve and advance universal service.
