EPA is announcing the availability of and soliciting public comment on a manufacturer request for a risk evaluation of di-isononyl phthalate (DINP) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The request was made by Evonik Corporation, ExxonMobil Chemical Company and Teknor Apex, through the American Chemistry Council's High Phthalates Council. EPA conducts risk evaluations to determine whether a chemical substance presents an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment without consideration of costs or other non-risk factors, including an unreasonable risk to potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulations, under the conditions of use. In the docket associated with this request is the manufacturer request for an EPA conducted risk evaluation and possible additional conditions of use EPA has identified for inclusion within the scope of a risk evaluation of DINP. After considering comments received in response to this solicitation, EPA will make a decision whether to grant or deny the manufacturer request. All TSCA risk evaluations, whether EPA-initiated or manufacturer- requested, will be conducted in the same manner.

Airport Investment Partnership Program
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) received the final application from Hendry County and Airglades Airport, LLC for the participation of Airglades Airport (2IS) in the Airport Investment Partnership Program (formerly the Airport Privatization Pilot Program) and has determined that the final application is substantially complete and accepted for review. The determination that the application is substantially complete results in the commencement of FAA's review and is not an approval or disapproval of the proposed privatization application. The FAA is seeking information and comments from interested parties on the final application. The FAA will review the application, public comments, and any other relevant additional submission by the applicant or the public, and issue a decision approving or disapproving the application. Title 49 U.S.C. Section 47134 establishes the Airport Investment Partnership Program and authorizes the Department of Transportation to grant exemptions from certain Federal statutory and regulatory requirement for airport privatization projects. The application procedures require the FAA to publish a notice of receipt of the final application in the Federal Register and accept public comment on the final application for a period of 60 days. However, the 60-day notice period is not a statutory or regulatory requirement. The applicants have requested the comment period be reduced to 30 days because they desire to obtain approval, assuming the application is sufficient, by September 30, 2019. Under Section 184 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, approval of an application by this date (and the project meets all other requirements), would permit the agency to issue a letter of intent for Airport Improvement Program grant funds. FAA has agreed to reduce the comment period based on the applicants' request.
