Provisions for Disposition of Existing Stocks ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Existing stocks are those stocks of registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States and that were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to the effective date of the action. If the requests for voluntary cancellation and amendments to terminate uses are granted, the Agency intends to publish the cancellation order in the Federal Register. In any order issued in response to these requests for cancellation of product registrations and amendments to terminate uses, EPA proposes to include the following provisions for the treatment of any existing stocks of the products listed in Tables 1 and 2 of Unit II. For voluntary product cancellations, registrants will be permitted to sell and distribute existing stocks of voluntarily canceled products for 1 year after the effective date of the cancellation, which will be the date of publication of the cancellation order in the Federal Register. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the products identified in Table 1 of Unit II, except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 (7 U.S.C. 136o) or for proper disposal. Once EPA has approved product labels reflecting the requested amendments to terminate uses, registrants will be permitted to sell or distribute products under the previously approved labeling for a period of 18 months after the date of Federal Register publication of the cancellation order, unless other restrictions have been imposed. Thereafter, registrants will be prohibited from selling or distributing the products whose labels include the terminated uses identified in Table 2 of Unit II. except for export consistent with FIFRA section 17 or for proper disposal. Persons other than the registrant may sell, distribute, or use existing stocks of canceled products & products whose labels include the terminated uses until supplies are exhausted, provided that such sale, distribution, or use is consistent with the terms of the previously approved labeling on, or that accompanied, the canceled products & terminated uses.

AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator signed an Order dated August 9, 2021, granting in part and denying in part a Petition dated April 11, 2017 from the Environmental Integrity Project and Sierra Club. The Petition requested that the EPA object to a Clean Air Act (CAA) title V operating permit issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to Blanchard Refining Company (Blanchard) for its Galveston Bay Refinery located in Galveston County, Texas. ADDRESSES: The EPA requests that you contact the individual listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to view copies of the final Order, the Petition, and other supporting information. Out of an abundance of caution for members of the public and our staff, the EPA Region 6 office is currently closed to the public to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID–19.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA affords EPA a 45-day period to review and object to, as appropriate, operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities under title V of the CAA. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the expiration of the EPA’s 45-day review period if the EPA has not objected on its own initiative. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 during the comment period or unless the grounds for the issue arose after this period. The EPA received the Petition from the Environmental Integrity Project and Sierra Club dated April 11, 2017, requesting that the EPA object to the issuance of operating permit no. O1541, issued by TCEQ to the Galveston Bay Refinery in Galveston County, Texas. The Petition claims the proposed permit improperly incorporated a State-only major source flexible permit, failed to establish a compliance schedule for Blanchard to obtain a federally approved major source permit, failed to identify, incorporate, and assure compliance with permits by rule (PBR) claimed by Blanchard, and failed to assure compliance with emission limits and operating requirements established by Blanchard’s New Source Review (NSR) permits, including permits by rule. On August 9, 2021, the EPA Administrator issued an Order granting in part and denying in part the Petition. The Order explains the basis for EPA’s decision. Dated: August 23, 2021.

General Description of Collection

    Small businesses are an important component of the U.S. economy. 
According to the Small Business Administration (SBA), small firms 
accounted for almost half of private-sector employment and over 65 
percent of net new jobs between 2000 and 2019.\1\ Many small businesses 
have little or no direct access to capital markets and are thus reliant 
on bank financing, both for operating expenses and for investment. For 
banks, small business lending is an important way that they help meet 
their communities' needs, especially for the many banks that primarily 
focus on commercial rather than consumer lending.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Given the value of small businesses to the U.S. economy and the 
role of bank lending to small businesses, the proposed FDIC 2022 Small 
Business Lending Survey (SBLS 2022), which surveys banks, will provide 
important data to complement existing sources of information and will 
provide additional insight into many aspects of small business lending 
extended by banks.
    The proposed SBLS 2022 will document the current types of credit 
offered, information banks use to underwrite loans, the market area for 
small business loans, competition for small business lending, and the 
practices used to conduct small business lending. SBLS 2022 asks 
similar questions about banks' lending volumes for business purposes as 
in the 2016 collection, but by finer gradations for both business size 
and loan size and by both loans outstanding and loan originations. The 
proposed collection will also provide new information on banks' current 
or planned use of financial technology, whether and how banks use 
automated lending, and the effects of the coronavirus pandemic with 
respect to their small business loan programs.

Comment Discussion

    On April 21, 2021, the FDIC issued a request for comment (86 FR 
20697) on a proposed second collection of the SBLS to be fielded in May 
2022. No comments were received.

Request for Comment

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information 
is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, 
including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection; 
(c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the 
information collection on respondents, including through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology.
    The FDIC will consider all comments to determine the extent to 
which the information collection should be modified prior to submission 
to OMB for review and approval. After the comment period closes, 
comments will be summarized and/or included in the FDIC's request to 
OMB for approval of the collection. All comments will become a matter 
of public record.
