Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA issued a notice in the Federal Register of May 8, 2018, concerning EPA's planned submission of an existing Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and renewed approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The ICR, entitled: ``Pesticide Program Public Sector Collections (FIFRA Sections 18 & 24(c))'' and identified by EPA ICR No. 2311.03 and OMB Control No. 2070-0182, represents the renewal of an existing ICR that is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2018. As indicated in that document, EPA is soliciting comments on the ICR and the agency's estimated burden hour and costs for those information collection activities. EPA intended that document to open a 60 day comment period, but there was an error in the DATES section that indicated the comment period already closed on April 30, 2018. This document corrects that typographical error.

Type: Rule
Date: 2018-05-18
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action to approve a submittal by the State of California (``State'') to revise its State Implementation Plan (SIP). The submittal consists of State regulations establishing standards and other requirements relating to the control of emissions from certain new and in-use on- road and off-road vehicles and engines. The EPA is approving the SIP revision because the regulations meet the applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act. Approval of these regulations as part of the California SIP makes them federally enforceable.
