Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 250 / Thursday, December 29, 2016 / Notices Order that deny issues in the petition may be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit within 60 days from the date this notice is published in the Federal Register. Petitioner submitted a petition regarding the aforementioned PGP facility, requesting that EPA object to the CAA title V operating permit (#4911–171–0014–V–02–0). Petitioner alleged that the permit was not consistent with the CAA because: (1) It lacks adequate fuel testing to assure compliance with the burning of only ‘‘clean cellulosic biomass’’; (2) it includes synthetic minor limits for hazardous air pollutants that are unenforceable; (3) it includes synthetic minor limits for oxides of nitrogen and carbon monoxide that are unenforceable; (4) it includes other specific conditions that are unenforceable; (5) it failed to include best available control technology requirements related to greenhouse gas emissions; and (6) the potential to emit calculation for the facility impermissibly excluded emissions during startup, shutdown, and malfunction. On December 16, 2016, the Administrator issued an Order granting in part and denying in part the petition. The Order explains EPA’s rationale for granting in part and denying in part the petition.

Privacy Impact Assessment: No impacts(s). Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection to OMB after this 60-day comment period as a revision to obtain the full three-year clearance from OMB. On September 29, 2016, the Commission adopted final rules in Review of Foreign Ownership Policies for Broadcast, Common Carrier and Aeronautical Radio Licensees under Section 310(b)(4) of the Communications Act of 1934, as Amended, Report and Order, 31 FCC Rcd 11272 (2016) (2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order). In the 2016 Foreign Ownership Order, the Commission: • Modified its foreign ownership filing and review process for broadcast licensees by extending to such licensees the streamlined rules and procedures developed for foreign ownership reviews of common carrier and certain aeronautical licensees (collectively, ‘‘common carrier’’ licensees) under Section 310(b)(4) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the Act) with certain modifications to tailor them to the broadcast context; and • Reformed the methodology used by both common carrier and broadcast licensees that are, or are controlled by, U.S. publicly traded companies to assess their compliance with the foreign ownership limits in Sections 310(b)(3) and 310(b)(4) of the Act, respectively. The Commission therefore requests approval of substantial changes to the above-referenced information collection in order to apply to broadcast licensees substantially the same foreign ownership rules and procedures that apply to common carrier licensees and spectrum lessees and certain aeronautical licensees (collectively, ‘‘common carrier’’ licensees) under this information collection and the rules adopted in Review of Foreign Ownership Policies for Common Carrier and Aeronautical Radio Licensees under Section 310(b)(4) of the Communications Act of 1934, as Amended, IB Docket No. 11–133, Second Report and Order, 28 FCC Rcd 5741(2013). The 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order incorporated broadcasters into the common carrier foreign ownership rules (previously codified in E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1 asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 95994 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 250 / Thursday, December 29, 2016 / Notices Part 1, Subpart F, Sections 1.990 through 1.994 of the Commission’s rules) through various changes. Notably, the Commission added new text to certain paragraphs of the rules (see e.g. Note to paragraph (i)(1) of Section 1.5001(i)), and by adding new paragraphs where needed. In this regard, we have added new paragraph (e) to Section 1.5000, which sets forth the new methodology for eligible public companies—both broadcast and common carrier—and new paragraphs (f)(2)–(3) of Section 1.5004, which sets forth new compliance provisions for such companies. The rules adopted in the 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order include the following broadcast-specific provisions in lieu of provisions applicable to common carrier licensees: • Broadcast licensees filing a petition for declaratory ruling (petition) to request Commission approval of foreign ownership in excess of the 25 percent benchmark in Section 310(b)(4) will use the broadcast ‘‘attribution’’ criteria to determine those U.S. and foreign ownership interests that must be disclosed in the petition. The disclosure will ensure the Commission has sufficient information to understand the licensee’s ownership structure and to verify the identity and ultimate control of the foreign investor for which the petitioner seeks specific approval. • Broadcast licensees will use the broadcast ‘‘insulation criteria’’ set forth in the broadcast attribution rules in determining whether the broadcaster must include in its petition a request for ‘‘specific approval’’ of a particular foreign investor because the investor holds, or would hold, directly and/or indirectly, more than 5 percent (or, in the case of certain passive investors, more than 10 percent) of the total outstanding capital stock (equity) and/or voting stock (or a controlling share) of the licensee’s controlling U.S.-organized parent company. The current insulation criteria for common carrier licensees will continue to apply. The Commission does not anticipate that these broadcast-specific provisions will impact the time per response for broadcast companies filing a Section 310(b)(4) petition. Thus, we estimate the same time per response for broadcast as for common carrier petitions. The Commission also finds that adopting a standardized filing and review process for broadcast licensees’ requests to exceed the 25 percent foreign ownership benchmark in Section 310(b)(4), as the Commission has done for common carrier licensees, will provide the broadcast sector with greater VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:41 Dec 28, 2016 Jkt 241001 transparency, more predictability, and reduce regulatory burdens and costs. In addition to these tailored changes to incorporate broadcast licensees into the existing foreign ownership rules applicable to common carrier licensees under Section 310(b)(4), the 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order clarifies the Commission’s foreign ownership compliance procedures (to be codified in Section 1.5004(f)(3)–(4)) specifically to allow a broadcast or common carrier licensee to file a petition for declaratory ruling to remedy the licensee’s inadvertent noncompliance with the statutory foreign ownership limits or the terms and conditions of the licensee’s existing foreign ownership ruling with reasonable assurance that the Commission will not take enforcement action. The Commission is also making nonsubstantial changes to this information collection to renumber the foreign ownership rules, which currently are codified in Part 1, Subpart F, Sections 1.990 through 1.994 of the Commission’s rules. The new rules, as adopted in the 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order, will be codified in Part 1, Subpart T, Section 1.5000 through 1.5004 of the Commission’s rules. There is for the most part a oneto-one correlation between the existing rules (1.990–1.994) and the new rules (1.5000–1.5004). Federal Communications Commission.

    Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information 
collection to OMB after this 60-day comment period as a revision to

    On September 29, 2016, the Commission adopted final rules in Review 
of Foreign Ownership Policies for Broadcast, Common Carrier and 
Aeronautical Radio Licensees under Section 310(b)(4) of the 
Communications Act of 1934, as Amended, Report and Order, 31 FCC Rcd 
11272 (2016) (2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order). In the 2016 
Foreign Ownership Order, the Commission:
     Modified its foreign ownership filing and review process 
for broadcast licensees by extending to such licensees the streamlined 
rules and procedures developed for foreign ownership reviews of common 
carrier and certain aeronautical licensees (collectively, ``common 
carrier'' licensees) under Section 310(b)(4) of the Communications Act 
of 1934, as amended (the Act) with certain modifications to tailor them 
to the broadcast context; and
     Reformed the methodology used by both common carrier and 
broadcast licensees that are, or are controlled by, U.S. publicly 
traded companies to assess their compliance with the foreign ownership 
limits in Sections 310(b)(3) and 310(b)(4) of the Act, respectively.
    The Commission therefore requests approval of substantial changes 
to the above-referenced information collection in order to apply to 
broadcast licensees substantially the same foreign ownership rules and 
procedures that apply to common carrier licensees and spectrum lessees 
and certain aeronautical licensees (collectively, ``common carrier'' 
licensees) under this information collection and the rules adopted in 
Review of Foreign Ownership Policies for Common Carrier and 
Aeronautical Radio Licensees under Section 310(b)(4) of the 
Communications Act of 1934, as Amended, IB Docket No. 11-133, Second 
Report and Order, 28 FCC Rcd 5741(2013).
    The 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order incorporated 
broadcasters into the common carrier foreign ownership rules 
(previously codified in

[[Page 95994]]

Part 1, Subpart F, Sections 1.990 through 1.994 of the Commission's 
rules) through various changes. Notably, the Commission added new text 
to certain paragraphs of the rules (see e.g. Note to paragraph (i)(1) 
of Section 1.5001(i)), and by adding new paragraphs where needed. In 
this regard, we have added new paragraph (e) to Section 1.5000, which 
sets forth the new methodology for eligible public companies--both 
broadcast and common carrier--and new paragraphs (f)(2)-(3) of Section 
1.5004, which sets forth new compliance provisions for such companies.
    The rules adopted in the 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order 
include the following broadcast-specific provisions in lieu of 
provisions applicable to common carrier licensees:
     Broadcast licensees filing a petition for declaratory 
ruling (petition) to request Commission approval of foreign ownership 
in excess of the 25 percent benchmark in Section 310(b)(4) will use the 
broadcast ``attribution'' criteria to determine those U.S. and foreign 
ownership interests that must be disclosed in the petition. The 
disclosure will ensure the Commission has sufficient information to 
understand the licensee's ownership structure and to verify the 
identity and ultimate control of the foreign investor for which the 
petitioner seeks specific approval.
     Broadcast licensees will use the broadcast ``insulation 
criteria'' set forth in the broadcast attribution rules in determining 
whether the broadcaster must include in its petition a request for 
``specific approval'' of a particular foreign investor because the 
investor holds, or would hold, directly and/or indirectly, more than 5 
percent (or, in the case of certain passive investors, more than 10 
percent) of the total outstanding capital stock (equity) and/or voting 
stock (or a controlling share) of the licensee's controlling U.S.-
organized parent company. The current insulation criteria for common 
carrier licensees will continue to apply.
    The Commission does not anticipate that these broadcast-specific 
provisions will impact the time per response for broadcast companies 
filing a Section 310(b)(4) petition. Thus, we estimate the same time 
per response for broadcast as for common carrier petitions. The 
Commission also finds that adopting a standardized filing and review 
process for broadcast licensees' requests to exceed the 25 percent 
foreign ownership benchmark in Section 310(b)(4), as the Commission has 
done for common carrier licensees, will provide the broadcast sector 
with greater transparency, more predictability, and reduce regulatory 
burdens and costs.
    In addition to these tailored changes to incorporate broadcast 
licensees into the existing foreign ownership rules applicable to 
common carrier licensees under Section 310(b)(4), the 2016 Foreign 
Ownership Report and Order clarifies the Commission's foreign ownership 
compliance procedures (to be codified in Section 1.5004(f)(3)-(4)) 
specifically to allow a broadcast or common carrier licensee to file a 
petition for declaratory ruling to remedy the licensee's inadvertent 
non-compliance with the statutory foreign ownership limits or the terms 
and conditions of the licensee's existing foreign ownership ruling with 
reasonable assurance that the Commission will not take enforcement 
action.
    The Commission is also making non-substantial changes to this 
information collection to renumber the foreign ownership rules, which 
currently are codified in Part 1, Subpart F, Sections 1.990 through 
1.994 of the Commission's rules. The new rules, as adopted in the 2016 
Foreign Ownership Report and Order, will be codified in Part 1, Subpart 
T, Section 1.5000 through 1.5004 of the Commission's rules. There is 
for the most part a one-to-one correlation between the existing rules 
(1.990-1.994) and the new rules (1.5000-1.5004).
