ADDRESSES: The FAA does not issue restricted areas for small arms gun ranges within the United States. Issuing a restricted area for small arm gun ranges in Guam would set a precedent nationwide at military and countless civilian gun clubs. This proliferation of restricted areas would result in inefficient management of the National Airspace System (NAS). The USMC purpose and need for the airspace is to provide a safe and effective area for live-fire training. The FAA allows for live-fire training at small arm gun ranges in within the United States without a restricted area. The USMC has numerous live fire ranges without the segregation that a restricted area provides and can complete their mission safely and effectively in Guam without one.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes to approve Colorado’s regional haze progress report, submitted as a revision to its State Implementation Plan (SIP) by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). Colorado’s SIP revision addresses requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and the EPA’s rules that require states to submit periodic reports describing progress toward Reasonable Progress Goals (RPGs) established for regional haze and a determination of the adequacy of the state’s existing plan addressing regional haze. Colorado’s progress report explains that Colorado has implemented the measures in the regional haze plan due to be in place by the date of the progress report and that visibility in mandatory federal Class I areas affected by emissions from Colorado sources is improving. The EPA is proposing approval of Colorado’s determination that the State’s regional haze plan is adequate to meet RPGs for the first implementation period, which extended through 2018 and requires no substantive revision at this time.

II. Proposal Two

    Background. In Docket No. RM2018-8, the Commission approved the 
Postal Service's methodology to distribute dispatch format revenue it 
receives from inbound LC/AO mail based whether the mailpiece was a 
letter, flat, or small packet/bulky letter.\2\ However, the Commission 
noted that it was possible to refine the Postal Service's methodology 
to distribute inbound LC/AO revenue and that ``distributing dispatch 
format revenue to item formats based on the revenue per piece and 
revenue per pound for those mail flows where terminal dues are 
calculated on a per-item and per-kilogram basis [is] worthy of further 
evaluation.'' Order No. 4827 at 18. Although the Postal Service 
incorporated such a revenue distribution methodology in its Fiscal Year 
(FY) 2018 Annual Compliance Report (ACR), the Postal Service asserts 
that there was ``no prior opportunity . . . to seek Commission review 
of the new procedure incorporated into the ACR.'' Petition, Proposal 
Two at 2. In the FY 2018 Annual Compliance Determination, the 
Commission accepted the Postal Service's revenue distribution for 
inbound LC/AO mail for purposes of the compliance review, but directed 
the Postal Service to ``file a petition for the initiation of a 
proceeding to consider this proposed change in analytical 
principles[.]'' \3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See generally Docket No. RM2018-8, Order On Analytical 
Principles Used in Periodic Reporting (Proposal Five), September 21, 
2018 (Order No. 4827). ``LC/AO'' is an abbreviation for ``lettres et 
cartes'' and ``autres objets,'' and is French for ``letters and 
cards'' and ``other objects.'' LC/AO refers to international 
letters, cards, flats, bulky letters, and small packets, whether 
under the Universal Postal Union (UPU) terminal dues system or 
bilateral or multilateral agreements. Inbound LC/AO contrasts with 
Inbound Letter Post, which refers to the Postal Service product 
consisting of letters, cards, flats, bulky letters, and small 
packets received under the terminal dues system. See Mail 
Classification Schedule (MCS), section 1130.
    \3\ Docket No. ACR2018, Annual Compliance Determination Report, 
April 12, 2019, at 81.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Proposal. The Postal Service's proposal seeks to revise the revenue 
distribution methodology for inbound LC/AO mailpieces. Currently, the 
Postal Service distributes inbound LC/AO revenue based on weight 
proportions by shape in the dispatch data. Petition, Proposal Two at 3. 
Proposal Two would distribute dispatch format revenue to item formats 
based upon the revenue per piece and the revenue per pound for those 
items where remuneration is based on a per-item and per-kilogram basis. 
Id. at 2-3.
    Rationale and impact. The Postal Service states that Proposal Two 
will apply more detailed piece and weight data to distribute inbound 
LC/AO revenue. Id. at 3. The Postal Service notes that Proposal Two 
requests review of the methodology it used to distribute inbound LC/AO 
revenue in its FY 2018 ACR, which was described in its response to 
Chairman's Information Request No. 1. Id. at 2-3.
    The impact of Proposal Two is that revenue for inbound small 
packets and bulky letters decreases as revenue for inbound letters and 
flats increases. Id. at 3. The Postal Service states that this result 
is expected as the previous revenue distribution method, based solely 
on weight, would allocate more revenue towards the heavier weighted 
small packets and bulky letters. Id.

III. Notice and Comment

matters raised by the Petition. More information on the Petition may be
