Introduction On July 17, 2015, the Postal Service filed a petition pursuant to 39 CFR 3050.11 requesting that the Commission initiate an informal rulemaking proceeding to consider changes to analytical principles relating to periodic reports.1 Proposal Four is attached to the Petition and identifies the proposed analytical method change as a change relating to the use of the Summary of International Revenue and Volume Outbound statistical system (SIRVO) in the International Cost and Revenue Analysis (ICRA) report. Id. The Postal Service concurrently filed a nonpublic library reference, along with an application for nonpublic treatment of materials.2 1 Petition of the United States Postal Service for the Initiation of a Proceeding to Consider Proposed Changes in Analytical Principles (Proposal Four), July 17, 2015 (Petition). 2 Notice of Filing of USPS–RM2015–12/NP1 and Application for Nonpublic Treatment, July 17, 2015 (Notice).

The Postal Service states this change will streamline the ICRA data sources by eliminating 16 of the 20 datasets and retaining only four files for outbound Priority Mail Express International data that are not provided by SIRVO. Id. at 2. Further, Proposal Four will include data for the 186 additional countries/territories currently subsumed in the four regional aggregate groups. Id. The Postal Service states that despite movement in the costs for individual products because of the new weighting scheme, overall costs will remain the same (to within one ten-thousandth of 1 percent) due to the ICRA benchmarking process.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve the July 17, 2012, State Implementation Plan (SIP) submission, submitted by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Energy and Environment Cabinet, Department for Environmental Protection, through the Kentucky Division for Air Quality (KY DAQ) for inclusion into the Kentucky SIP. This proposal pertains to the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) infrastructure requirements for the 2008 Lead national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). The CAA requires that each state adopt and submit a SIP for the implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of each NAAQS promulgated by EPA, which is commonly referred to as an ‘‘infrastructure SIP submission.’’ KY DAQ certified that the Kentucky SIP contains provisions that ensure the 2008 Lead NAAQS is implemented, enforced, and maintained in Kentucky. With the exception of provisions pertaining to prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) permitting, EPA is proposing to determine that Kentucky’s infrastructure SIP submission, provided to EPA on July 17, 2012, satisfies the required infrastructure elements for the 2008 Lead NAAQS.

II. Summary of Proposal

    The Postal Service explains that the ICRA processing currently uses 
20 individual quarterly international accounting datasets to provide 
country-specific outbound mail flow data for 46 individual countries 
and four regional aggregated country groupings. Petition, Proposal Four 
at 2. International accounting data have been the source of the mail 
flow data for countries not reported in the ICRA inputs by SIRVO. Id.
    Under Proposal Four, the Postal Service seeks to use expanded SIRVO 
data in lieu of international accounting data. Id. The Postal Service 
asserts that the change does not materially affect the overall workings 
of the ICRA because the use of the SIRVO data is parallel to the use of 
the international accounting data. Id. The Postal Service states this 
change will streamline the ICRA data sources by eliminating 16 of the 
20 datasets and retaining only four files for outbound Priority Mail 
Express International data that are not provided by SIRVO. Id. at 2. 
Further, Proposal Four will include data for the 186 additional 
countries/territories currently subsumed in the four regional aggregate 
groups. Id.
    The Postal Service states that despite movement in the costs for 
individual products because of the new weighting scheme, overall costs 
will remain the same (to within one ten-thousandth of 1 percent) due to 
the ICRA benchmarking process. Id. at 4. The Postal Service identifies 
36 changes that differ by more than $0.01 and 1 percent at the same

Service represents that the shift to the SIRVO data sources will 
increase the volume-variable costs for International Priority Airmail 
and International Surface Airlift by $125,000 and $85,000, 
respectively. Id. The Postal Service asserts that this cost change is
