More specifically, PTE 1992–6 exempts from the prohibited transaction restrictions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), 29 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., the sale of individual life insurance or annuity contracts by a plan to participants, relatives of participants, employers any of whose employees are covered by the plan, other employee benefit plans, owner-employees or shareholder-employees; provided, certain conditions are met. In the absence of this exemption, certain aspects of these transactions might be prohibited by ERISA section 406.

ERISA section 408(a) authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 1108(a). This information collection is subject to the PRA.

The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE


Notice of Lodging of Proposed Modification of Consent Decree 
Under the Clean Air Act

    On February 13, 2017, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed 
modification to a Consent Decree with the United States District Court 
for the Western District of Louisiana in United States and the 
Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality v. Cabot Corporation, 
Civil Case No. 13-3095 (W.D. La.).
    The original Consent Decree was entered on March 13, 2014, and 
resolved civil claims under the Clean Air Act at the Defendant's three 
carbon black manufacturing facilities located in Louisiana and Texas. 
The Consent Decree imposed various pollution control requirements on 
Defendant's facilities, including requirements related to sulfur 
dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter emissions. At the 
Canal and Ville Platte facilities in Louisiana, these pollution control 
requirements included, among other requirements, installation of Wet 
Gas Scrubber (``WGS'') systems designed to reduce sulfur dioxide 
emissions, and Selective Catalytic Reduction (``SCR'') systems to 
reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. The WGS systems are also expected to 
result in an

ancillary reduction in particulate matter emissions.
    The parties to the Consent Decree have agreed to certain 
modifications to the Decree that reflect a more refined understanding 
of the ancillary particulate matter reductions expected from the sulfur 
dioxide controls, and associated scheduling delays. The modifications 
would extend the deadlines for installing controls by six-and-a-half 
months at the Canal facility and by nine months at the Ville Platte 
facility, and would establish a process for Cabot to petition EPA for 
an alternative particulate matter limit to reflect the ancillary 
particulate reductions expected from the sulfur dioxide controls.
    The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on 
the proposed modifications to the Consent Decree. Comments should be 
addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural 
Resources Division, and should refer to United States and the Louisiana
