Mandatory Deposit of Electronic-Only Books: Extension of Comment Period, 22609-22610 [2018-10421]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 95 / Wednesday, May 16, 2018 / Proposed Rules existed for public comment on the draft amendment and specifically notified stakeholders of this opportunity. The public Notice was posted in the PA Bulletin on both PADEP’s online eComment and on the Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation websites. No comments were received. C. Under the proposed amendment, PADEP may undertake an emergency project in any of the eligible coalfields found in Pennsylvania and these projects may involve any eligible legacy coal mining related problems. A site is eligible for AML funding if it was mined for coal or was affected by such mining, was abandoned or left in an inadequate reclamation status prior to August 3, 1977, the date of enactment of SMCRA, and if it is determined that there is no continuing reclamation responsibility under State or other Federal laws. See 30 U.S.C. 1234. A site that was mined after August 3, 1977, may be eligible for AML funding if it meets the criteria in section 402(g)(4)(B)(i) or (ii). See 30 U.S.C. 1232(g)(4)(B)(i) or (ii). D. The proposed program amendment satisfies the objectives of the abandoned mine land program as set out in Section 403 of SMCRA, FAM Chapter 4, OSMRE Directive AML–4 and the NEPA handbook, which are available at https://www.osmre.gov. The State has indicated that it will have the capability and the administrative structure to properly implement the Emergency Response Program as described in this amendment and is willing and able to work closely with OSMRE to ensure its success. The full text of the program amendment is available for you to read at the locations listed above under ADDRESSES or at www.regulations.gov. nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with PROPOSALS III. Public Comment Procedures Under the provisions of 30 CFR 732.17(h), we are seeking your comments on whether the amendment satisfies the applicable program approval criteria of 30 CFR 732.15. If we approve the amendment, it will become part of the Pennsylvania’s State Program. Electronic or Written Comments If you submit written or electronic comments on the proposed rule during the 30-day comment period, they should be specific, confined to issues pertinent to the proposed regulations, and explain the reason for any recommended change(s). We appreciate any and all comments, but those most useful and likely to influence decisions on the final regulations will be those that either involve personal experience or include citations to and analyses of SMCRA, its VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:33 May 15, 2018 Jkt 244001 legislative history, its implementing regulations, case law, other pertinent State or Federal laws or regulations, technical literature, or other relevant publications. We cannot ensure that comments received after the close of the comment period (see DATES) or sent to an address other than those listed (see ADDRESSES) will be included in the docket for this rulemaking and considered. Public Availability of Comments Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment including your personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Public Hearing If you wish to speak at the public hearing, contact the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT by 4:00 p.m., e.s.t. on May 31, 2018. If you are disabled and need reasonable accommodations to attend a public hearing, contact the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. We will arrange the location and time of the hearing with those persons requesting the hearing. If no one requests an opportunity to speak, we will not hold a hearing. To assist the transcriber and ensure an accurate record, we request, if possible, that each person who speaks at the public hearing provide us with a written copy of his or her comments. The public hearing will continue on the specified date until everyone scheduled to speak has been given an opportunity to be heard. If you are in the audience and have not been scheduled to speak and wish to do so, you will be allowed to speak after those who have been scheduled. We will end the hearing after everyone scheduled to speak, and others present in the audience who wish to speak, have been heard. Public Meeting If only one person requests an opportunity to speak, we may hold a public meeting rather than a public hearing. If you wish to meet with us to discuss the amendment, please request a meeting by contacting the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. All such meetings are open to the public and, if possible, we will post notices of meetings at the locations listed under ADDRESSES. We will make PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 22609 a written summary of each meeting a part of the administrative record. IV. Procedural Determinations Executive Order 12866—Regulatory Planning and Review Pursuant to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Guidance dated October 12, 1993, the approval of state program amendments is exempted from OMB review under Executive Order 12866. Other Laws and Executive Orders Affecting Rulemaking When a State submits a plan amendment to OSMRE for review and that amendment changes the objectives, scope or major policies followed, our regulations at 30 CFR 884.14 and 884.15 require us either to hold a public hearing on a plan amendment or make a finding that the State provided adequate notice and opportunity for public comment. Pennsylvania has elected to have OSMRE publish a notice in the Federal Register indicating receipt of the proposed amendment and soliciting comments. We will conclude our review of the proposed amendment after the close of the public comment period and determine whether the amendment should be approved, approved in part, or not approved. At that time, we will also make the determinations and certifications required by the various laws and executive orders governing the rulemaking process and include them in the final rule.
