Document Number: 2017-27811
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-12-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellations and amendments to terminate uses, voluntarily requested by the registrants and accepted by the Agency, of the products listed in Table 1A, Table 1B and Table 2 of Unit II, pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows an October 3, 2017 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 3 of Unit II to voluntarily cancel and amend to terminate uses of these product registrations. The cancellations of products listed in Table 1B would terminate the last Spirodiclofen products registered for use in the United States. In the October 3, 2017 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the cancellations and amendments to terminate uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrants withdrew their requests. The Agency received 5 comments on the notice but none merited its further review of the requests. Further, the registrants did not withdraw their requests. Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested cancellations and amendments to terminate uses. Any distribution, sale, or use of the products subject to this cancellation order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions.

Alpha-cypermethrin; Proposed Pesticide Tolerance
Document Number: 2017-27806
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-12-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This document proposes to amend existing tolerances for residues of alpha-cypermethrin in or on fruit, citrus, group 10-10 and hog fat under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). This proposal sets an expiration date for the existing tolerances while establishing new lower tolerance levels that will cover the same commodities when the current tolerances expire. EPA is proposing these changes to correct an error in a previous rulemaking that established these tolerances at an unintended level.
2-Propenoic acid, 2-methyl-, dodecyl ester, polymer with 1-ethenyl-2-pyrrolidinone and a-(2-methyl-1-oxo-2-propen-1-yl)-w-methoxypoly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl); Tolerance Exemption
Document Number: 2017-27805
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of 2-propenoic acid, 2-methyl-, dodecyl ester, polymer with 1-ethenyl-2-pyrrolidinone and a-(2-methyl-1-oxo-2- propen-1-yl)-w-methoxypoly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl); when used as an inert ingredient in a pesticide chemical formulation. Spring Trading Company on behalf of Ashland Specialty Ingredients, submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of 2-propenoic acid, 2-methyl-, dodecyl ester, polymer with 1- ethenyl-2-pyrrolidinone and a-(2-methyl-1-oxo-2-propen-1-yl)-w- methoxypoly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl) on food or feed commodities.

Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
For the Understanding Rapid Re-housing Study, the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) is partnering with an external research team to collect new data to analyze the current status of the rapid re-housing (RRH) programs and the experiences of RRH participants. The project will provide HUD with a deeper understanding of how RRH programs operate and the experiences of households that use them. The Understanding Rapid Re-housing Study will synthesize existing research on RRH programs, extend the analysis of data from the Family Options Study (2016), provide a detailed examination of all rapid re-housing programs nationwide, and conduct qualitative research with a small sample of families and individuals who receive RRH. The study will collect contact information from Continuums of Care (CoCs) for RRH programs, as well as personal information from participating RRH households. In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, HUD/PD&R proposes to establish a new system of records titled, ``HUD/Understanding Rapid Re- housing.'' This system of records allows HUD/PD&R to collect and maintain records on rapid re-housing program participants who volunteer to participate in the study as well as Continuums of Care and rapid re- housing program staff. This newly established system will be included in HUD's inventory of systems.
