SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: New Task to the Committee The U.S. Coast Guard is issuing a new task to GLPAC to provide recommendations on whether existing regulations, guidance, and information collections (that fall within the scope of the Committee’s charter) should be repealed, replaced, or modified. GLPAC will then provide advice and recommendations on the assigned task and submit a final recommendation report to the U.S. Coast Guard. Background On January 30, 2017, President Trump issued Executive Order 13771, ‘‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs.’’ Under that Executive Order, for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations must be identified for elimination, and the cost of planned regulations must be prudently managed and controlled through a budgeting process. On February 24, 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13777, ‘‘Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.’’ That Executive Order directs agencies to take specific steps to identify and alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people. On March 28, 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13783, ‘‘Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth.’’ Executive Order 13783 promotes the clean and safe development of our Nation’s vast energy resources, while at the same time avoiding agency actions that unnecessarily encumber energy production. When implementing the regulatory offsets required by Executive Order 13771, each agency head is directed to prioritize, to the extent permitted by law, those regulations that the agency’s Regulatory Reform Task Force identifies as outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective in accordance with Executive Order 13777. As part of this process to comply with all three Executive Orders, the U.S. Coast Guard is reaching out through multiple avenues to interested individuals to gather their input about E:\FR\FM\27JYP1.SGM 27JYP1 34910 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 143 / Thursday, July 27, 2017 / Proposed Rules what regulations, guidance, and information collections, they believe may need to be repealed, replaced, or modified.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to amend the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants for flame attenuation (FA) lines in the wool fiberglass manufacturing industry. In the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of this Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final rule, without a prior proposed rule, that revises the compliance dates for FA lines. This direct final rule provides an additional year for affected sources to comply with the emission limits for FA lines. The EPA can give sources up to 3 years to comply with emission limits in the Clean Air Act (CAA) standards. FA lines initially were given 2 years to comply with the emission limits, and we are extending that compliance date to the maximum of 3 years while we conduct our review. This compliance date extension will enable the EPA to conduct a review of the emission limits for FA lines in light of recently submitted corrected source emissions data. If we receive no adverse comment, we will not take further action on this proposed rule. DATES: The EPA must receive written comments on or before August 28, 2017. Public Hearing.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

New Task to the Committee

    The U.S. Coast Guard is issuing a new task to GLPAC to provide 
recommendations on whether existing regulations, guidance, and 
information collections (that fall within the scope of the Committee's 
charter) should be repealed, replaced, or modified. GLPAC will then 
provide advice and recommendations on the assigned task and submit a 
final recommendation report to the U.S. Coast Guard.

Background

    On January 30, 2017, President Trump issued Executive Order 13771, 
``Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs.'' Under that 
Executive Order, for every one new regulation issued, at least two 
prior regulations must be identified for elimination, and the cost of 
planned regulations must be prudently managed and controlled through a 
budgeting process. On February 24, 2017, the President issued Executive 
Order 13777, ``Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.'' That Executive 
Order directs agencies to take specific steps to identify and alleviate 
unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people. On March 
28, 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13783, ``Promoting 
Energy Independence and Economic Growth.'' Executive Order 13783 
promotes the clean and safe development of our Nation's vast energy 
resources, while at the same time avoiding agency actions that 
unnecessarily encumber energy production.
    When implementing the regulatory offsets required by Executive 
Order 13771, each agency head is directed to prioritize, to the extent 
permitted by law, those regulations that the agency's Regulatory Reform 
Task Force identifies as outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective in 
accordance with Executive Order 13777. As part of this process to 
comply with all three Executive Orders, the U.S. Coast Guard is 
reaching out through multiple avenues to interested individuals to 
gather their input about

[[Page 34910]]

what regulations, guidance, and information collections, they believe 
may need to be repealed, replaced, or modified. On June 8, 2017, the 
U.S. Coast Guard issued a general notice in the Federal Register 
requesting comments from interested individuals regarding their 
recommendations, 82 FR 26632. In addition to this general solicitation, 
the U.S. Coast Guard also wants to leverage the expertise of its 
Federal Advisory Committees and is issuing similar tasks to each of its 
Committees. A detailed discussion of each of the Executive orders and 
information on where U.S. Coast Guard regulations, guidance, and 
information collections are found is in the June 8th notice.

The Task

    GLPAC is tasked to:

    Provide input to the U.S. Coast Guard on all existing 
regulations, guidance, and information collections that fall within 
the scope of the Committee's charter.
    1. One or more subcommittees/working groups, as needed, will be 
established to work on this tasking in accordance with the Committee 
charter and bylaws. The subcommittee(s) shall terminate upon the 
approval and submission of a final recommendation to the U.S. Coast 
Guard from the parent Committee.
    2. Review regulations, guidance, and information collections and 
provide recommendations whether an existing rule, guidance, or 
information collection should be repealed, replaced or modified. If 
the Committee recommends modification, please provide specific 
recommendations for how the regulation, guidance, or information 
collection should be modified. Recommendations should include an 
explanation on how and to what extent repeal, replacement or 
modification will reduce costs or burdens to industry and the extent 
to which risks to health or safety would likely increase.
    a. Identify regulations, guidance, or information collections 
that potentially impose the following types of burden on the 
industry:
    i. Regulations, guidance, or information collections imposing 
administrative burdens on the industry.
    ii. Regulations, guidance, or information collections imposing 
burdens in the development or use of domestically produced energy 
resources. ``Burden,'' for the purposes of compliance with Executive 
Order 13783, means ``to unnecessarily obstruct, delay, curtail, or 
otherwise impose significant costs on the siting, permitting, 
production, utilization, transmission, or delivery of energy 
resources.''
    b. Identify regulations, guidance, or information collections 
that potentially impose the following types of costs on the 
industry:
    i. Regulations, guidance, or information collections imposing 
costs that are outdated (such as due to technological advancement), 
or are no longer necessary.
    ii. Regulations, guidance, or information collections imposing 
costs which are no longer enforced as written or which are 
ineffective.
    iii. Regulations, guidance, or information collections imposing 
costs tied to reporting or recordkeeping requirements that impose 
burdens that exceed benefits. Explain why the reporting or 
recordkeeping requirement is overly burdensome, unnecessary, or how 
it could be modified.
    c. Identify regulations, guidance, and information collections 
that the Committee believes have led to the elimination of jobs or 
inhibits job creation within a particular industry.
    3. All regulations, guidance, and information collections, or 
parts thereof, recommended by the Committee should be described in 
sufficient detail (by section, paragraph, sentence, clause, etc.) so 
that it can readily be identified. Data (quantitative or 
qualitative) should be provided to support and illustrate the 
impact, cost, or burden, as applicable, for each recommendation. If 
the data is not readily available, the Committee should include 
information as to how such information can be obtained either by the 
Committee or directly by the Coast Guard.
