SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 10, 2020, DEP submitted a revision to the Pennsylvania SIP to incorporate a plan for maintaining the 1997 ozone NAAQS in the Franklin County Area through July 25, 2027, in accordance with CAA section 175A. I. Background In 1979, under section 109 of the CAA, EPA established primary and secondary NAAQS for ozone at 0.12 parts per million (ppm), averaged over a 1-hour period. 44 FR 8202 (February 8, 1979). On July 18, 1997 (62 FR 38856),1 EPA revised the primary and secondary NAAQS for ozone to set the acceptable level of ozone in the ambient air at 0.08 ppm, averaged over an 8-hour period. EPA set the 1997 ozone NAAQS based on scientific evidence demonstrating that ozone causes adverse health effects at lower concentrations and over longer periods of time than was understood when the pre-existing 1-hour ozone NAAQS was set. Following promulgation of a new or revised NAAQS, EPA is required by the CAA to designate areas throughout the nation as attaining or not attaining the NAAQS. On April 30, 2004 (69 FR 23858), EPA designated Franklin County as nonattainment for the 1997 ozone NAAQS. Once a nonattainment area has three years of complete and certified air quality data that has been determined to attain the NAAQS, and the area has met 1 In March 2008, EPA completed another review of the primary and secondary ozone standards and tightened them further by lowering the level for both to 0.075 ppm. 73 FR 16436 (March 27, 2008). Additionally, in October 2015, EPA completed a review of the primary and secondary ozone standards and tightened them by lowering the level for both to 0.70 ppm. 80 FR 65292 (October 26, 2015).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Postal Service is proposing to amend PUB 
52 with the provisions described below and, once adopted, will 
incorporate the revised PUB 52 by reference into part 113. You may view 
the text of the proposed edits to PUB 52 at: https://pe.usps.com/.
    Air carriers are required to review HAZMAT shipments and complete 
HAZMAT checklists at the time of acceptance to mitigate risk to 
aviation. The Postal Service tenders mail, including packages 
containing both non-hazardous and hazardous materials to its contracted 
air carriers in sealed containers. Due to the sealed nature of the

items at a specific time of day.
    The Postal Service HAZMAT standard operating procedures state air-
eligible HAZMAT must be separated with appropriate documentation from 
other non-HAZMAT mail for air transportation. The proposed change will 
require mailers to separate all air-eligible HAZMAT prior to acceptance 
to allow these pieces to flow in a more efficient manner and prevent 
co-mingled packages of surface only transportation HAZMAT and non-
HAZMAT mail when tendered to air carriers.
