SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 16, 2018, (83 FR 40843) PHMSA published a notice to seek public comments on a report developed to support improvements in gas and hazardous liquid pipeline risk models.

The VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:25 Aug 29, 2018 Jkt 244001 Pipeline Risk Modeling Report considers the major types of pipeline risk models, and the effectiveness of each type in supporting risk assessments, as applied to pipeline operator decisions. In an August 15, 2018, letter to PHMSA, the American Gas Association, the American Petroleum Institute, the American Public Gas Association, the Association of Oil Pipe Lines, and the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America requested a 30-day extension of the comment deadline to allow them and other interested stakeholders plan their review of the notice. PHMSA has concurred with the Associations’ request and has extended the comment period as shown in the DATES section of this notice. This extension will provide sufficient additional time for commenters to submit their comments. Issued in Washington, DC, on August 24, 2018, under authority delegated in 49 CFR 1.97.

The Department is republishing, in full, the System of Records Notice (SORN) 36VA29 that was last published on October 22, 2010. This republication provides a number of nonsignificant edits added for clarity and brevity, such as minor updates involving the locations and references of the mailing addresses for both onsite and offsite records storage sites, corrected office designations for VA Insurance Center’s Director, amendment of website terminology that reflects more accurate nomenclature for access, and includes references to the amended title of the vendor that provides telecommunication services to the Veterans Insurance Phone Section (VIPS). This nonsignificant alteration also eliminates references to the amendments made in the revised and consolidated SORN 36VA29 of October 22, 2010. This amendment also provides for a number of modifications for routine uses that include text changes and additions that are considered to be a significant amendment based on VA requirements. The following are the changes made to the routine uses for SORN 36VA29. The language of routine use number one, which states, ‘‘The record of an individual who is covered by a system of records may be disclosed to a Member of Congress, or a staff person acting for the Member, when the Member or staff person requests the record on behalf of, and at the written request of, the individual’’, has been amended to state, ‘‘VA may disclose information from the record of an individual in response to an inquiry from the congressional office made at the request of that individual.’’ VA must be able to provide information about individuals to adequately respond to inquiries from Members of Congress at the request of constituents who have sought their assistance. This change to routine use number one is not a new routine use but is amended to reflect the current language used for the release of information to members of Congress.
