The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at McNary Field Airport, Salem, OR. On March 8, 2016 a Final Rule was published modifying the airspace at McNary Field, Salem, OR (81FR 12002). A comment was received on May 10, 2016 questioning the safety of the LOC/DME BC RWY 13 approach. The FAA concurred that the presence of terrain in the procedure turn transition airspace increased the risk to IFR operations into McNary Field, Salem, OR. A Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) was issued advising pilots this approach was non-available pending the outcome of this proposal. After a review of the airspace, the FAA identified that the approach to runway 31 also was not fully contained in controlled airspace and would also be modified by this proposal. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified by adding segments extending from the 6.7mile radius to 13.50 miles northwest of the airport, and extending from the 8.2mile radius to 16.5 miles southeast of the airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:48 Jun 28, 2016 Jkt 238001 under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action. 40 CFR Part 52 [EPA–R07–OAR–2016–0303; FRL–9948–12– Region 7] Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; State of Kansas; Cross-State Air Pollution Rule List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). AGENCY: The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a December 1, 2015, State Implementation Plan (SIP) submittal from Kansas concerning allocations of Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) emission allowances. Under CSAPR, large electricity generating units in Kansas are subject to a Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) requiring the units to participate in CSAPR’s Federal trading program for annual emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX). This action would approve Kansas’ adoption into its SIP of state regulations establishing state-determined allocations to replace EPA’s default allocations to Kansas units of CSAPR allowances for annual NOX emissions for 2017 through 2019. EPA is proposing to approve the SIP revision because it meets the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and EPA’s regulations for approval of an abbreviated SIP revision replacing EPA’s default allocations of CSAPR emission allowances with statedetermined allocations. Approval of this SIP revision would not alter any provision of CSAPR’s Federal trading program for annual NOX emissions as applied to Kansas units other than the allowance allocation provisions, and the FIP requiring the units to participate in the trading program (as modified by the SIP revision) would remain in place.

We have published a direct final rule approving the State’s SIP revision (s) in the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, because we view this as a noncontroversial action and anticipate no relevant adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this action in the preamble to the direct final rule. If we receive no adverse comment, we will not take further action on this proposed rule. If we receive adverse comment, we will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. We would address all public comments in any subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. We do not intend to institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For further information, please see the information provided in the ADDRESSES section of this document. Large electricity generating units in Kansas are subject to a CSAPR Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) that requires the units to participate in the Federal CSAPR NOX Annual Trading Program.2 Each of CSAPR’s Federal trading programs includes default provisions governing the allocation among participating units of emission allowances used for compliance under that program. CSAPR also provides a process for the submission and approval of SIP revisions to replace EPA’s default allocations with state-determined allocations. The SIP revision approved in the direct final rule incorporates into Kansas’s SIP state regulations establishing state-determined allowance allocations to replace EPA’s default allocations to Kansas units of CSAPR NOX Annual allowances issued for the control periods in 2017 through 2019. EPA is approving the SIP revision because it meets the requirements of the CAA and EPA’s regulations for approval of an abbreviated SIP revision replacing EPA’s default allocations of CSAPR emission allowances with statedetermined allocations. Approval of the SIP revision does not alter any provision of the CSAPR NOX Annual Trading Program as applied to Kansas units other than the allowance allocation provisions, and the FIP requiring the units to participate in that program (as modified by the SIP revision) remains in place. Because the SIP revision addresses only the control periods in 2017 through 2019, absent submission and approval of a further SIP revision, allocations of CSAPR NOX Annual allowances for control periods in 2020 and later years will be made pursuant to the default allocation provisions. Large electricity generating units in Kansas are also subject to an additional CSAPR FIP requiring them to participate in the Federal CSAPR SO2 Group 2 Trading Program. Kansas’ SIP submittal does not seek to replace the default allocations of CSAPR SO2 Group 2 allowances to Kansas units.

ACTION: Proposed rule; request for comments. AGENCY: In January 2011, NMFS implemented the trawl rationalization program, a type of catch share program, for the Pacific coast groundfish fishery’s limited entry trawl fleet, which includes an individual fishing quota program for limited entry trawl participants. At the time of implementation, the widow rockfish stock was overfished and quota shares were allocated to quota share permit owners in the individual fishing quota program using an overfished species formula. Now that the widow rockfish stock has been rebuilt, NMFS proposes to reallocate quota shares to initial recipients based on a target species formula that will more closely represent the fishing history of permit owners when widow rockfish was a targeted species. Through this rule, NMFS also proposes to allow the trading of widow rockfish quota shares, set a deadline for divestiture in case the reallocation of widow rockfish puts any QS permit owner over an accumulation limit, and remove the daily vessel limit for widow rockfish since it is no longer an overfished species.

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
State of Kansas; Cross-State Air Pollution Rule

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve a December 1, 2015, State Implementation Plan (SIP) submittal 
from Kansas concerning allocations of Cross-State Air Pollution Rule 
(CSAPR) emission allowances. Under CSAPR, large electricity generating 
units in Kansas are subject to a Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) 
requiring the units to participate in CSAPR's Federal trading program 
for annual emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX). This action 
would approve Kansas' adoption into its SIP of state regulations 
establishing state-determined allocations to replace EPA's default 
allocations to Kansas units of CSAPR allowances for annual 
NOX emissions for 2017 through 2019. EPA is proposing to 
approve the SIP revision because it meets the requirements of the Clean 
Air Act (CAA) and EPA's regulations for approval of an abbreviated SIP 
revision replacing EPA's default allocations of CSAPR emission 
allowances with state-determined allocations. Approval of this SIP 
revision would not alter any provision of CSAPR's Federal trading 
program for annual NOX emissions as applied to Kansas units 
other than the allowance allocation provisions, and the FIP requiring 
the units to participate in the trading program (as modified by the SIP 
revision) would remain in place.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document proposes to take action on a 
revision to the SIP for Kansas concerning allocations of allowances 
used in the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) \1\ Federal trading 
program for annual emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX). We 
have published a direct final rule approving the State's SIP revision 
(s) in the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, 
because we view this as a noncontroversial action and anticipate no 
relevant adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this action 
in the preamble to the direct final rule. If we receive no adverse 
comment, we will not take further action on this proposed rule. If we 
receive adverse comment, we will withdraw the direct final rule and it 
will not take effect. We would address all public comments in any 
subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. We do not intend to 
institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so at this time. For further 
information, please see the information provided in the ADDRESSES 
section of this document.

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

    Large electricity generating units in Kansas are subject to a CSAPR 
Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) that requires the units to 
participate in the Federal CSAPR NOX Annual Trading 
Program.\2\ Each of CSAPR's Federal trading programs includes default 
provisions governing the allocation among participating units of 
emission allowances used for compliance under that program. CSAPR also 
provides a process for the submission and approval of SIP revisions to 
replace EPA's default allocations with state-determined allocations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ EPA has proposed to replace the terms ``Transport Rule'' and 
``TR'' in the text of the Code of Federal Regulations with the 
updated terms ``Cross-State Air Pollution Rule'' and ``CSAPR.'' 80 
FR 75706, 75759 (December 3, 2015). EPA uses the updated terms here.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The SIP revision approved in the direct final rule incorporates 
into Kansas's SIP state regulations establishing state-determined 
allowance allocations to replace EPA's default allocations to Kansas 
units of CSAPR NOX Annual allowances issued for the control 
periods in 2017 through 2019. EPA is approving the SIP revision because 
it meets the requirements of the CAA and EPA's regulations for approval 
of an abbreviated SIP revision replacing EPA's default allocations of 
CSAPR emission allowances with state-determined allocations. Approval 
of the SIP revision does not alter any provision of the CSAPR 
NOX Annual Trading Program as applied to Kansas units other 
than the allowance allocation provisions, and the FIP requiring the 
units to participate in that program (as modified by the SIP revision) 
remains in place. Because the SIP revision addresses only the control 
periods in 2017 through 2019, absent submission and approval of a 
further SIP revision, allocations of CSAPR NOX Annual 
allowances for control periods in 2020 and later years will be made 
pursuant to the default allocation provisions.
    Large electricity generating units in Kansas are also subject to an 
additional CSAPR FIP requiring them to participate in the Federal CSAPR 
SO2 Group 2 Trading Program. Kansas' SIP submittal does not 
seek to replace the default allocations of CSAPR SO2 Group 2 
allowances to Kansas units. Approval of this SIP revision concerning 
another CSAPR trading program has no effect on the CSAPR SO2 
Group 2 Trading Program as applied to Kansas units, and the FIP 
requiring the units to participate in that program remains in place.
