Notice of Fee Amounts To Be Set by the General Services Administration's Request for the Registration and Annual Renewal of .gov Second-Level Domains, 23493-23494 [2016-09294]

Download as PDF jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 77 / Thursday, April 21, 2016 / Notices Sodium acifluorfen is an herbicide that is registered for control of broadleaf weeds in soybean, peanuts, rice, and strawberry. EPA conducted a comprehensive human health risk assessment, which indicated that there are no risks of concern for human health. The ecological risk assessment indicated that there are potential risks of concern for non-target terrestrial plant species from the aerial use of sodium acifluorfen. To reduce risk to non-target terrestrial plants from aerial spray drift, the Agency is proposing the deletion of aerial use on strawberries and the implementation of uniform spray drift management language across all labels. The Agency is also proposing the inclusion of herbicide resistance management language on all sodium acifluorfen labels. This proposed interim decision does not include an endangered species determination, or any human health or environmental safety findings associated with the EDSP. The Agency’s final registration review decision is dependent upon a finding under ESA, an EDSP determination, and an assessment of risks to bees. Thidiazuron is a plant growth regulator applied as a pre-harvest defoliant to cotton in southern states such as Mississippi, Texas, and Georgia. Thidiazuron reduces foliage, dry leaves, and immature fruiting structures, at the time of harvest, which contribute to the staining of harvested cotton. Quantitative human health and ecological risk assessments, including a screening-level endangered species risk assessment, were conducted for thidiazuron. EPA did not identify any human health risks. EPA identified possible risk to non-target terrestrial plants from use of thidiazuron. In its proposed interim decision, EPA is proposing risk mitigation to reduce spray drift to non-target terrestrial plants. EPA is making no human health or environmental safety findings associated with the EDSP screening of thidiazuron, nor is it making an endangered species finding. EPA’s registration review decision for thidiazuron will depend upon the result of an EDSP Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act section 408(p) determination, complete pollinator determination, and an endangered species determination. The registration review docket for a pesticide generally includes earlier documents related to the registration review of the case. For example, the review opened with a Summary Document, containing a Preliminary Work Plan, for public comment. A Final Work Plan was placed in the docket VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:27 Apr 20, 2016 Jkt 238001 following public comment on the initial docket. The documents in the docket describe EPA’s rationales for conducting additional risk assessments for the registration review of the pesticides included in the Table in this unit, as well as the Agency’s subsequent risk findings and consideration of possible risk mitigation measures. These proposed interim registration decisions are supported by the rationales included in those documents. Following public comment, the Agency will issue interim registration review decisions for products containing the pesticides listed in the Table in this unit. The registration review program is being conducted under congressionally mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes the need both to make timely decisions and to involve the public. Section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) (7 U.S.C. 136a(g)) required EPA to establish by regulation procedures for reviewing pesticide registrations, originally with a goal of reviewing each pesticide’s registration every 15 years to ensure that a pesticide continues to meet the FIFRA standard for registration. The Agency’s final rule to implement this program was issued in August 2006 and became effective in October 2006, and appears at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. The Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003 (PRIA) was amended and extended in September 2007. FIFRA, as amended by PRIA in 2007, requires EPA to complete registration review decisions by October 1, 2022, for all pesticides registered as of October 1, 2007. The registration review final rule at 40 CFR 155.58(a) provides for a minimum 60-day public comment period on all proposed interim registration review decisions. This comment period is intended to provide an opportunity for public input and a mechanism for initiating any necessary amendments to the proposed interim decision. All comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. These comments will become part of the docket for the pesticides included in the Table in this unit. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late.’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. The Agency will carefully consider all comments received by the closing date and will provide a ‘‘Response to Comments Memorandum’’ in the docket. The interim registration review decision will explain the effect that any comments had on the interim decision PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23493 and provide the Agency’s response to significant comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The .gov domain was first established in 1985 under the Internet 
Engineering Task Force of the Internet Society, RFC 920, 1480, 1591, 
1811, and 2146 as a generic top-level domain (TLD) for government 
entities in the United States. In 2003, GSA published the Federal 
Management Regulation final rule, Internet GOV Domain (41 CFR part 102-
173), at 68 FR 15089 (March 28, 2003), which codified existing guidance 
and best practice methods for domain management, then stratified across 
governmental and non-governmental bodies, and expanded the .gov domain 
to permit inclusion of state, local, and tribal governments (SLTTs).
    GSA is designated as the TLD owner and Domain Policy Authority for 
governmental entities in the United States, including Federal, state, 
local and tribal governments. OGP oversees the enabling rule (41 CFR 
part 102-173, Internet GOV Domain--hereafter ``Final Rule'') and 
administers the .gov domain registration and renewal process in 
accordance with the original rule and the .gov Domain Registration and 
Management Guidance. The rule and the guidance govern registrations and 
renewals for second-level domains under the top level .gov domain.
    When GSA published the Final Rule in 2003, it initiated the 
assessment of fees for the registration and annual renewal .gov domains 
by Federal Government agencies, the Legislative Branch, the Judicial 
Branch, and SLTTs. At the time, GSA stated in the Federal Register that 
the Final Rule ``merely establishes a ceiling for the charges that GSA 
may assess in the future if circumstances require it. These charges, if 
established, will be based on the costs of operations and market 
rates.''
    Since publication of the Final Rule, all bodies seeking to register 
and use a .gov domain are assessed a $125 per annum fee for 
registration and for annual renewals. The fee has remained unchanged 
since 2003, even as new laws, enhanced security protocols, protections 
and controls, and increased operational costs have substantially raised 
the overall cost for GSA to manage the .gov domain.
    OGP solicited advice and feedback from stakeholders representing 
all levels of government, internationally, as well as the private 
sector to better inform decision-making about whether a per annum fee 
increase should occur. The research details also yielded insight as to 
the amount the increase would be considered reasonable.
    41 CFR 102-173.45 sets the fee for new .gov domain registrations at 
no more than $1,000 per year, and the charge for annual .gov domain 
renewals at no more than $500 per year. The current fee of $125 per 
annum has been in effect since publication of the Final Rule. To 
compensate for increased operational costs and security requirements of 
maintaining the .gov domain, GSA will raise the fee for both new 
registrations and annual renewals to $400 per annum. This fee will be 
the same for all entities who apply to initially register, or renew, an 
existing registration of a .gov second-level domain name and are 
approved, per 41 CFR 102-173.
