The Tahoe National Forest is proposing a new recreation fee for the Sardine Lookout, which would be made available as an overnight rental. The rental fee is proposed at $45 per night.

Allocations of Cross-State Air Pollution Rule Allowances From New Unit Set-Asides for 2016 Control Periods
Document Number: 2016-29441
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-12-09
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing notice of the availability of preliminary lists of units eligible for allocations of emission allowances under the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR). Under the CSAPR federal implementation plans (FIPs), portions of each covered state's annual emissions budgets for each of the CSAPR emissions trading programs are reserved for allocation to electricity generating units that commenced commercial operation on or after a certain date (new units) and certain other units not otherwise obtaining allowance allocations under the FIPs. The quantities of allowances allocated to eligible units from each new unit set-aside (NUSA) under the FIPs are calculated in an annual one- or two-round allocation process. EPA previously completed the first round of NUSA allowance allocations for the 2016 control periods for all the CSAPR trading programs, as well as the second round of allocations for the CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Trading Program, and is now making available preliminary lists of units eligible for allocations in the second round of the NUSA allocation process for the CSAPR NOX Annual, SO2 Group 1, and SO2 Group 2 Trading Programs. EPA has posted spreadsheets containing the preliminary lists on EPA's Web site. EPA will consider timely objections to the lists of eligible units contained in the spreadsheets and will promulgate a document responding to any such objections no later than February 15, 2017, the deadline for recording the second- round allocations of CSAPR NOX Annual, SO2 Group 1, and SO2 Group 2 allowances in sources' compliance accounts. This document may concern CSAPR-affected units in the following states: Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Second External Review Draft Integrated Science Assessment for Sulfur Oxides-Health Criteria
Document Number: 2016-29438
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-12-09
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing a public comment period ending on March 20, 2017, for the draft document titled, ``Second External Review Draft Integrated Science Assessment for Sulfur OxidesHealth Criteria'' (EPA/600/R-16/351). The draft document was prepared by the National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) within EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) as part of the review of the primary (health-based) National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for sulfur dioxide (SO2). The Integrated Science Assessment (ISA), in conjunction with additional technical and policy assessments, provides the scientific basis for EPA's decisions on the adequacy of the current NAAQS and the appropriateness of possible alternative standards. EPA intends to develop a separate ISA as part of an independent review for the secondary (welfare-based) NAAQS for oxides of nitrogen and sulfur. EPA is releasing this draft document to seek review by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) and the public (meeting date and location to be specified in a separate Federal Register notice). This draft document is not final as described in EPA's information quality guidelines, and it does not represent, and should not be construed to represent, Agency policy or views. When revising the document, EPA will consider any public comments submitted during the public comment period specified in this notice.
Announcement of Requirements and Registration for “A Wearable Alcohol Biosensor: A Second Challenge”
Document Number: 2016-29436
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-12-09
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health
Through the ``A Wearable Alcohol Biosensor: A Second Challenge'' (the ``Challenge''), the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is building upon the success of the previous challenge and searching for a wearable or otherwise discreet device capable of measuring blood alcohol level in real time. The advent of alcohol biosensors that can be worn discreetly and used by individuals in the course of their daily lives will advance the mission of the NIAAA in the arenas of research, treatment, and rehabilitation. Current technological developments in electronics, miniaturization, wireless technology, and biophysical techniques of alcohol detection in humans increase the likelihood of successful development of a useful alcohol biosensor in the near future. The NIH believes that this Challenge will further stimulate investment from public and private sectors in the development of functional alcohol biosensors that will be appealing to individuals, treatment providers, and researchers and will continue to further the NIAAA's mission.

Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act; Seafood Import Monitoring Program
Document Number: 2016-29324-2
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA), this final rule establishes permitting, reporting and recordkeeping procedures relating to the importation of certain fish and fish products, identified as being at particular risk of illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing or seafood fraud, in order to implement the MSA's prohibition on the import and trade, in interstate or foreign commerce, of fish taken, possessed, transported or sold in violation of any foreign law or regulation or in contravention of a treaty or a binding conservation measure of a regional fishery organization to which the United States is a party. Collection of catch and landing documentation for certain fish and fish products will be accomplished through the government-wide International Trade Data System (ITDS) by electronic submission of data through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) maintained by the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The information will be collected through the ITDS electronic single window consistent with the Safety and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006 and other applicable statutes. Specifically, this rule revises an existing NMFS requirement for the importer of record to file electronically through ACE data prescribed under certain existing NMFS programs (and to retain records supporting such filings) to also cover the data required to be reported under this rule. This rule requires data to be reported on the harvest of fish and fish products. In addition, this rule requires retention of additional supply chain data by the importer of record and extends an existing NMFS requirement to obtain an annually renewable International Fisheries Trade Permit (IFTP) to the fish and fish products regulated under this rule. The information to be reported and retained, as applicable, under this rule will help authorities verify that the fish or fish products were lawfully acquired by providing information to trace each import shipment back to the initial harvest event(s). The rule will also decrease the incidence of seafood fraud by requiring the reporting of this information to the U.S. Government at import and requiring retention of documentation so that the information reported (e.g., regarding species and harvest location) can be verified.
