AGENCY: The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA or Agency) seeks comments on a proposed amendment to its regulations governing the small business timber set-aside program (hereafter referred to as the ‘‘timber program’’) so that appraisals on small business set-aside sales be made to the nearest small business mill. Timber sale appraisals are performed for small business qualifying set-aside and nonset-aside sales. When the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Forest Service (FS) offers timber for sale, it appraises its potential market value and sets the minimum bid that it will accept based on that appraisal. Currently, appraisals in small business set-aside timber sales take into account the haul costs to the nearest mill regardless of that mill’s size. Since setaside timber sales require the use of small business mills, SBA proposes that the appraisal on set-aside timber sales SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\27SEP1.SGM 27SEP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On December 17, 2014, DOE published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NOPR) in the Federal Register (79 FR 75076) in which it proposed 
regulations under section 934 of EISA to establish a retrospective risk 
pooling program whereby, in the event of certain nuclear incidents, 
nuclear suppliers would pay for any contribution by the United States 
government to the international supplementary fund created by the 
Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage (CSC). On 
August 3, 2016, DOE published in the Federal Register a notice and 
request for comments (81 FR 51193) on a proposed collection of 
information that it is developing in connection with the NOPR for 
submission to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The notice stated that comments 
regarding the proposed information collection were to be submitted by 
October 3, 2016. Also on August 3, 2016, DOE published in the proposed 
rules section of the Federal Register a notice of a public workshop (81 
FR 51140) to discuss the proposed information collection. At the 
workshop held on September 16, 2016, several entities commented 
requesting additional time in which to submit further comments on 
issues raised at the workshop and in comments submitted in advance of 
the workshop. After the workshop, one commenter submitted a written 
request for an extension of the public comment period, until at least 
November 3, 2016. In response to public comment, DOE has determined 
that the request for an extension of time should be granted, and the 
public comment period will close on November 7, 2016.
