For planning purposes, first preference customers may be required to provide forecasts and other information required by Western as set forth in the electric service contract. K. The general criteria and contract principles set forth in Sections V.A, C through I, K, M, and O of this Proposed Plan will apply to first preference customers. VII. Transmission Service Allottees and customers must secure all necessary transmission service to deliver Federal power. Western will provide transmission service to deliver the Base Resource over the CVP transmission system. Western will work with allottees and customers to secure bundled or unbundled transmission services as appropriate beyond its CVP transmission system in conjunction with its power sales in a manner consistent with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission orders, legislated mandates, or California Independent System Operator agreements. While Western will work with allottees and customers, it is the allottees and customers obligations to secure all necessary transmission service. Generally, Western will market surplus transmission capacity on the CVP and COTP available under Western’s Open Access Transmission Tariff. The legislation authorizing the PACI provides for the Secretary to market surplus available transmission capacity on the PACI at equitable rates to aid and benefit the CVP. Western will determine the use of its transmission resources concurrently with further development of the products and services under this Proposed Plan. Specific terms and conditions for transmission will be provided for in future service agreements. Western will develop transmission rates under a separate proceeding. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES VIII. Changes in the Electric Utility Industry Western recognizes that there have been, and continue to be, significant changes in the electric utility industry. In order to address this concern, Western is proposing, in collaboration with its customers, to include the ability to make changes in how the Federal resource is marketed if there is deemed a benefit to Western and its customers. Any changes implemented would be done through negotiation and revision to individual customer contracts. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:20 May 05, 2016 Jkt 238001 Authorities Western developed this Proposed Plan in accordance with its power marketing authorities pursuant to the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7101, et seq.); the Reclamation Act of June 17, 1902 (ch. 1093, 32 Stat. 388), as amended and supplemented by subsequent enactments, particularly section 9(c) of the Reclamation Project Act of 1939 (43 U.S.C. 485(c)); and other acts specifically applicable to the projects involved. 27439 Executive Order 12866; accordingly, no clearance of this Federal Register notice by the Office of Management and Budget is required. Dated: April 22, 2016. Mark A. Gabriel, Administrator. [FR Doc. 2016–10620 Filed 5–5–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6450–01–P ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Regulatory Procedure Requirements [EPA–HQ–OPP–2009–1017; FRL–9943–66] Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.), Western has received approval from the Office of Management and Budget for the collection of customer information in this rule, under control number 1910–5136, which expires on September 30, 2017. Notice of Receipt of Requests To Voluntarily Cancel Pesticide Registrations and Amend Registrations To Terminate Certain Uses Regulatory Flexibility Analysis The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), requires preparation of an initial regulatory flexibility analysis whenever an agency is required by 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other law, to publish general notice of proposed rulemaking for any proposed rule. A final regulatory flexibility analysis is required whenever the agency promulgates a final rule under 5 U.S.C. 553, after being required by that section or any other law to publish a general notice of proposed rulemaking. Western has determined that the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act do not apply to this rulemaking because it is a rulemaking involving services applicable to public property. Environmental Compliance In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370), Council on Environmental Quality NEPA implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and DOE NEPA implementing regulations (10 CFR part 1021), Western completed a Categorical Exclusion (CX). Since Western is reallocating its existing resources and is not planning to increase its generation or transmission under this Proposed Plan, a CX is the appropriate level of environmental review. Determination Under Executive Order 12866 Western has an exemption from centralized regulatory review under PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: In accordance with the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), EPA is issuing a notice of receipt of requests by registrants to voluntarily cancel certain pesticide registrations and amend one pesticide registration. The amendment request would delete the following uses of MGK 264: Outdoor ground applications (tall grass, shrubbery, around lawns, corrals, feed lots, swine lots, zoos); and direct applications to beef cattle, dairy cattle, and horses. The product cancellation requests listed herein would not terminate the last products registered for these pesticides for use in the United States. EPA intends to grant these cancellation and amendment requests at the close of the comment period for this announcement unless the Agency receives substantive comments within the comment period that would merit its further review of the requests, or unless the registrants withdraw their requests. If these requests are granted, any sale, distribution, or use of products listed in this notice will be permitted after the registration has been cancelled or amended only if such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms as described in the final order. DATES: Comments must be received on or before June 6, 2016.

Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)) provides that a registrant of a pesticide product may at any time request that any of its pesticide registrations be cancelled or amended to terminate one or more uses. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal Register. Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)(B)) requires that before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide a 30-day public comment period on the request for voluntary cancellation or use termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)(C)) requires that EPA provide a 180-day comment period on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any minor agricultural use before granting the request, unless: 1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or 2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:20 May 05, 2016 Jkt 238001 The registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II requested that EPA waive the 180–day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30–day comment period on the proposed requests. IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Requests Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for product cancellation or use deletion should submit the withdrawal in writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier cancellation action are controlling. V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the action. If the requests for voluntary cancellation and amendments to delete uses are granted, the Agency intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal Register. In any order issued in response to these requests for cancellation of PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 product registrations and for an amendment to delete a use, EPA proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of the products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. 1. For product 100–1455, the registrant has indicated to the Agency via written response that the product was never produced or sold. Therefore, EPA anticipates that no existing stocks provision is needed for the registrant or persons other than the registrant. 2. For the products 6836–25, 6836– 201, 6836–284, 74075–2, 81002–2, and 81002–3, the registrants have indicated to the Agency that there are no stocks of the products in the channels of trade. Therefore, EPA anticipates that the registrants do not need an existing stocks provision. Persons other than the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the cancelled product. 3. For product registration 47000–101, ChemTech requested 12 months to manufacture and distribute existing stocks. However, since their stated goal E:\FR\FM\06MYN1.SGM 06MYN1 asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 27442 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 88 / Friday, May 6, 2016 / Notices was to complete sales and distribution by March 2016, EPA anticipates that the registrant will not need an existing stocks provision. Persons other than the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the cancelled product. 4. For product 67690–40, the registrant requested an existing stocks provision to sell and distribute product until December 31, 2016, and as of that date will no longer have any current stock. Therefore, EPA anticipates allowing the registrant to sell and distribute existing stocks of the product through December 31, 2016. Thereafter, the registrant will be prohibited from selling and distributing the product, except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Persons other than the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the cancelled product. 5. For the product 89459–27, once EPA has approved the product label reflecting the requested amendments to delete specific uses, the registrant will be permitted to sell or distribute the product under the previously approved labeling for a period of 18 months after the date of Federal Register publication of the cancellation order, unless other restrictions have been imposed. Thereafter, the registrant will be prohibited from selling or distributing the product whose label includes the deleted uses identified in Table 2 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of the amended product whose label includes the deleted uses until supplies are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the amended product. 6. For all other products identified in Table 1 of Unit II, EPA anticipates allowing the registrants to sell and distribute existing stocks of voluntarily cancelled products for 1 year after the effective date of the cancellation, which will be the date of publication of the cancellation order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the products identified in Table 1 of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:20 May 05, 2016 Jkt 238001 Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Persons other than the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of cancelled products until supplies are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the cancelled products.

Notice of Receipt of Requests To Voluntarily Cancel Pesticide 
Registrations and Amend Registrations To Terminate Certain Uses

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and 
Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), EPA is issuing a notice of receipt of requests 
by registrants to voluntarily cancel certain pesticide registrations 
and amend one pesticide registration. The amendment request would 
delete the following uses of MGK 264: Outdoor ground applications (tall 
grass, shrubbery, around lawns, corrals, feed lots, swine lots, zoos); 
and direct applications to beef cattle, dairy cattle, and horses. The 
product cancellation requests listed herein would not terminate the 
last products registered for these pesticides for use in the United 
States. EPA intends to grant these cancellation and amendment requests 
at the close of the comment period for this announcement unless the 
Agency receives substantive comments within the comment period that 
would merit its further review of the requests, or unless the 
registrants withdraw their requests. If these requests are granted, any 
sale, distribution, or use of products listed in this notice will be 
permitted after the registration has been cancelled or amended only if 
such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms as 
described in the final order.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before June 6, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. General Information

A. Does this action apply to me?

    This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of 
interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human 
health, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide 
users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, 
or use of pesticides. Since others also may be interested, the Agency 
has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be 
affected by this action.

B. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When preparing and submitting 
your comments, see the commenting tips at http://www.epa.gov/dockets/comments.html.

II. What action is the Agency taking?

    This notice announces receipt by EPA of requests from registrants 
to cancel certain pesticide products and amend one product registration 
for MGK 264 by deleting specific uses listed in Table 2 of this unit. 
The affected products and the registrants making the requests are 
identified in Tables 1-3 of this unit.
    Unless a request is withdrawn by the registrant or if the Agency 
determines that there are substantive comments that warrant further 
review of the request, EPA intends to issue an order in the Federal 
Register cancelling and amending the affected registrations.

III. What is the Agency's authority for taking this action?

    Section 6(f)(1) of FIFRA (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)) provides that a 
registrant of a pesticide product may at any time request that any of 
its pesticide registrations be cancelled or amended to terminate one or 
more uses. FIFRA further provides that, before acting on the request, 
EPA must publish a notice of receipt of any such request in the Federal 
Register.
    Section 6(f)(1)(B) of FIFRA (7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)(B)) requires that 
before acting on a request for voluntary cancellation, EPA must provide 
a 30-day public comment period on the request for voluntary 
cancellation or use termination. In addition, FIFRA section 6(f)(1)(C) 
(7 U.S.C. 136d(f)(1)(C)) requires that EPA provide a 180-day comment 
period on a request for voluntary cancellation or termination of any 
minor agricultural use before granting the request, unless:
    1. The registrants request a waiver of the comment period, or
    2. The EPA Administrator determines that continued use of the 
pesticide would pose an unreasonable adverse effect on the environment.
    The registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II requested that EPA 
waive the 180-day comment period. Accordingly, EPA will provide a 30-
day comment period on the proposed requests.

IV. Procedures for Withdrawal of Requests

    Registrants who choose to withdraw a request for product 
cancellation or use deletion should submit the withdrawal in writing to 
the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. If the 
products have been subject to a previous cancellation action, the 
effective date of cancellation and all other provisions of any earlier 
cancellation action are controlling.

V. Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks

    Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products 
that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, 
labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the 
action. If the requests for voluntary cancellation and amendments to 
delete uses are granted, the Agency intends to publish the cancellation 
order in the Federal Register.
    In any order issued in response to these requests for cancellation 
of product registrations and for an amendment to delete a use, EPA 
proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any 
existing stocks of the products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II.
    1. For product 100-1455, the registrant has indicated to the Agency 
via written response that the product was never produced or sold. 
Therefore, EPA anticipates that no existing stocks provision is needed 
for the registrant or persons other than the registrant.
    2. For the products 6836-25, 6836-201, 6836-284, 74075-2, 81002-2, 
and 81002-3, the registrants have indicated to the Agency that there 
are no stocks of the products in the channels of trade. Therefore, EPA 
anticipates that the registrants do not need an existing stocks 
provision. Persons other than the registrant will generally be allowed 
to sell, distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are 
exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent 
with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that 
accompanied, the cancelled product.
    3. For product registration 47000-101, ChemTech requested 12 months 
to manufacture and distribute existing stocks. However, since their 
stated goal

[[Page 27442]]

was to complete sales and distribution by March 2016, EPA anticipates 
that the registrant will not need an existing stocks provision. Persons 
other than the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, 
distribute, or use existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, 
provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the 
terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the 
cancelled product.
    4. For product 67690-40, the registrant requested an existing 
stocks provision to sell and distribute product until December 31, 
2016, and as of that date will no longer have any current stock. 
Therefore, EPA anticipates allowing the registrant to sell and 
distribute existing stocks of the product through December 31, 2016. 
Thereafter, the registrant will be prohibited from selling and 
distributing the product, except for export consistent with FIFRA 
section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Persons other than 
the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use 
existing stocks until such stocks are exhausted, provided that such 
sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the 
previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the cancelled 
product.
    5. For the product 89459-27, once EPA has approved the product 
label reflecting the requested amendments to delete specific uses, the 
registrant will be permitted to sell or distribute the product under 
the previously approved labeling for a period of 18 months after the 
date of Federal Register publication of the cancellation order, unless 
other restrictions have been imposed. Thereafter, the registrant will 
be prohibited from selling or distributing the product whose label 
includes the deleted uses identified in Table 2 of Unit II., except for 
export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons 
other than the registrant will generally be allowed to sell, 
distribute, or use existing stocks of the amended product whose label 
includes the deleted uses until supplies are exhausted, provided that 
such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the 
previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the amended 
product.
    6. For all other products identified in Table 1 of Unit II, EPA 
anticipates allowing the registrants to sell and distribute existing 
stocks of voluntarily cancelled products for 1 year after the effective 
date of the cancellation, which will be the date of publication of the 
cancellation order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants 
will be prohibited from selling or distributing the products identified 
in Table 1 of Unit II., except for export consistent with FIFRA section 
17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Persons other than the 
registrant will generally be allowed to sell, distribute, or use 
existing stocks of cancelled products until supplies are exhausted, 
provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the 
terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the 
cancelled products.
