SUMMARY: sradovich on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 18:10 Jun 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY The Act authorized the establishment of a national beef promotion and research program. The final Order was published in the Federal Register (51 FR 21632) on July 18, 1986, and the collection of assessments began on October 1, 1986. The program is administered by the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture from industry nominations, and composed of 100 cattle producers and importers. The program is funded by a $1-per-head assessment on producer marketing of cattle in the U.S. and on imported cattle, as well as an equivalent amount on imported beef and beef products. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service collects assessments from importers. On March 16, 2016, AMS published in the Federal Register (81 FR 14022) a proposed rule amending the Order established under the Act to add Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) codes for veal and veal products not currently covered under the Order and to update the carcass weight for imported veal carcasses used to determine the assessment rate for imported veal and veal products. Following publication, AMS discovered an error in the carcass weight of imported veal carcasses used to determine the assessment rate for imported veal and veal products. The correct weight used to calculate the assessment rate was published as 151 pounds, but the correct weight is 154 pounds. In addition, the industry recently requested the formula for how the assessment rate for imported veal and veal products is calculated. As a result of both the discovered error and the industry request, AMS is withdrawing the proposed rule and will publish a new proposed rule with the corrected carcass weight and formula. 10 CFR Part 460 Dated: June 17, 2016.

ACTION: Notice of availability; request for public comment, and request for information. AGENCY: Section 413 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) directs the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to establish energy conservation standards for manufactured housing. Section 413 further directs DOE to base its energy conservation standards on the most recent version of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and any supplements to that document, except where DOE finds that the IECC is not cost effective or where a more stringent standard would be more cost effective, based on the impact of the IECC on the purchase price of manufactured housing and on total lifecycle construction and operating costs. On June 17, 2016, DOE published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register pertaining to energy efficiency for manufactured housing. Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA) to evaluate the environmental impacts of this proposed action. DOE is seeking public comment on the environmental issues addressed in the EA. In conjunction with issuance of this draft EA for public review and comment, DOE is issuing a request for information that will help it analyze potential impacts on indoor air quality (IAQ) from the proposed energy conservation standards, in particular sealing manufactured homes tighter. DATES: Comments regarding this draft EA and/or information on IAQ must be received on or before August 15, 2016. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to Roak Parker at U.S. Department of Energy, 15013 Denver West Parkway, Golden, CO 80401, or by email at RulemakingEAs@ee.doe.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Act authorized the establishment of a national beef promotion 
and research program. The final Order was published in the Federal 
Register (51 FR 21632) on July 18, 1986, and the collection of 
assessments began on October 1, 1986. The program is administered by 
the Cattlemen's Beef Promotion and Research Board, appointed by the 
Secretary of Agriculture from industry nominations, and composed of 100 
cattle producers and importers. The program is funded by a $1-per-head 
assessment on producer marketing of cattle in the U.S. and on imported 
cattle, as well as an equivalent amount on imported beef and beef 
products. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service collects 
assessments from importers.
    On March 16, 2016, AMS published in the Federal Register (81 FR 
14022) a proposed rule amending the Order established under the Act to 
add Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) codes for veal and veal products 
not currently covered under the Order and to update the carcass weight 
for imported veal carcasses used to determine the assessment rate for 
imported veal and veal products.
    Following publication, AMS discovered an error in the carcass 
weight of imported veal carcasses used to determine the assessment rate 
for imported veal and veal products. The correct weight used to 
calculate the assessment rate was published as 151 pounds, but the 
correct weight is 154 pounds. In addition, the industry recently 
requested the formula for how the assessment rate for imported veal and 
veal products is calculated. As a result of both the discovered error 
and the industry request, AMS is withdrawing the proposed rule and will 
publish a new proposed rule with the corrected carcass weight and 
formula.
