Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a federal advisory committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an EPA program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to the EPA. Members of the public can submit relevant comments pertaining to the EPA’s charge, meeting materials, or the group providing advice. Input from the public to the SAB will have the most impact if it provides specific scientific or technical information or analysis for the SAB to consider or if it relates to the clarity or accuracy of the technical information. Members of the public wishing to provide comment should contact the DFO directly. Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an oral presentation at a public meeting will be limited to five minutes. Persons interested in providing oral statements at the June 14–15, 2016 meeting should contact Mr. Thomas Carpenter, DFO, in writing (preferably via email) at the contact information noted above by June 1, 2016 to be placed on the list of registered speakers. Written Statements: Written statements for the June 14–15, 2016 meeting should be received in the SAB Staff Office by June 7, 2016 so that the information can be made available to the SAB for its consideration prior to the meeting. Written statements should be supplied to the DFO at the contact information above via email (preferred) or in hard copy with original signature. Submitters are requested to provide a signed and unsigned version of each document because the SAB Staff Office does not publish documents with signatures on its Web sites. Members of the public should be aware that their personal contact information, if included in any written comments, may be posted to the SAB Web site. Copyrighted material will not be posted without explicit permission of the copyright holder. Accessibility: For information on access or services for individuals with disabilities, please contact Mr. Carpenter at the phone number or email address noted above, preferably at least ten days prior to the meeting, to give the EPA as much time as possible to process your request.

ACTION: Notice and request for comment. Pursuant to 12 U.S.C. 3301, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), established in 1979, is a formal interagency body empowered to prescribe principles and standards for the federal examination of financial institutions and to make recommendations to promote consistency and coordination in the supervision of institutions. The six members of the FFIEC represent the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the State Liaison Committee (SLC), and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) (Agencies). The FFIEC promotes compliance with federal consumer protection laws and regulations through each agency’s supervisory and outreach programs. Through compliance supervision, the FFIEC Agencies determine whether an institution is meeting its responsibility to comply with applicable requirements. The FFIEC requests comment on a proposal to revise the Uniform Interagency Consumer Compliance Rating System, more commonly known as the ‘‘CC Rating System,’’ to reflect the regulatory, examination (supervisory), technological, and market changes that have occurred in the years since the current rating system was established. The FFIEC is proposing to revise the existing CC Rating System to better reflect current consumer compliance supervisory approaches. The revisions are designed to more fully align the rating system with the FFIEC Agencies’ current risk-based, tailored examination SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\03MYN1.SGM 03MYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 13, 2005, the final Cross-Media 
Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR) was published in the Federal 
Register (70 FR 59848) and codified as part 3 of title 40 of the CFR. 
CROMERR establishes electronic reporting as an acceptable regulatory 
alternative to paper reporting and establishes requirements to assure 
that electronic documents are as legally dependable as their paper 
counterparts. Subpart D of CROMERR requires that state, tribal or local 
government agencies that receive, or wish to begin receiving, 
electronic reports under their EPA-authorized programs must apply to 
EPA for a revision or modification of those programs and obtain EPA 
approval. Subpart D provides standards for such approvals based on 
consideration of the electronic document receiving systems that the 
state, tribe, or local government will use to implement the electronic 
reporting. Additionally, Sec.  3.1000(b) through (e) of 40 CFR part 3, 
subpart D provides special procedures for program revisions and 
modifications to allow electronic reporting, to be used at the option 
of the state, tribe or local government in place of procedures 
available under existing program-specific authorization regulations. An 
application submitted under the subpart D procedures must show that the 
state, tribe or local government has sufficient legal authority to 
implement the electronic reporting components of the programs covered 
by the application and will use electronic document receiving systems 
that meet the applicable subpart D requirements.
    On April 11, 2016, the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT 
DPH) submitted an application titled Compliance Monitoring Data Portal 
for revision to its EPA-approved drinking water program under title 40 
CFR to allow new electronic reporting. EPA reviewed CT DPH's request to 
revise its EPA-authorized program and, based on this review, EPA 
determined that the application met the standards for approval of 
authorized program revision set out in 40 CFR part 3, subpart D. In 
accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(d), this notice of EPA's decision to 
approve Connecticut's request to revise its Part 142--National Primary 
Drinking Water Regulations Implementation program to allow electronic 
reporting under 40 CFR part 141 is being published in the Federal 
Register.
    CT DPH was notified of EPA's determination to approve its 
application with respect to the authorized program listed above.
    Also, in today's notice, EPA is informing interested persons that 
they may request a public hearing on EPA's action to approve the State 
of Connecticut's request to revise its authorized public water system 
program under 40 CFR part 142, in accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(f). 
Requests for a hearing must be submitted to EPA within 30 days of 
publication of today's Federal Register notice. Such requests should 
include the following information:
    (1) The name, address and telephone number of the individual, 
organization or other entity requesting a hearing;
