      The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is denying a petition for rulemaking (PRM-60-2 and 60-2A) submitted by the States of Nevada and Minnesota dealing with disposal of high-level radioactive waste (HLW). In PRM-60-2, the petitioners requested that the NRC adopt a regulation governing the implementation of certain generally applicable environmental standards for HLW that had been proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1982. Subsequently, in PRM-60-2A, the petitioners amended their original petition after EPA issued final standards in 1985. The amended petition was placed on hold pending completion of certain rulemaking activities, including EPA and NRC development of new HLW disposal standards applicable only to a site at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. The NRC is denying the petition because the NRC

      The EPA is providing notice that it has placed in the dockets for the two main rulemakings concerning ozone-smog transport in the eastern part of the United States--the Nitrogen Oxides State Implementation Plan Call (NOX SIP Call) and the Section 126 Rule--additional data relevant to the remands by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit) concerning growth rates for seasonal heat input by electric generating units (EGUs). In both the NOX SIP Call and Section 126 rulemakings, EPA determined control obligations with respect to EGUs through the same computation, which included, as one component, estimates of growth in heat input by the EGUs from 1996 to 2007. In two cases decided last year challenging the Section 126 rulemaking and a pair of rulemakings that made technical corrections to the NOX SIP Call, the D.C. Circuit considered challenges to EPA's calculation of the growth estimate and its use of growth factors. In virtually identical decisions, the Court remanded the growth component to EPA for a better response to certain data presented by the affected States and industry concerning actual heat input, and for a better explanation of EPA's methodology. The EPA is in the process of responding to those remands.

    • Perfluoroalkyl Sulfonates; Proposed Significant New Use Rule
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      17 pages

      EPA is proposing a supplemental significant new use rule (SNUR) under section 5(a)(2) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for the following 75 substances: Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOSH) and certain of its salts (PFOSS), perfluorooctanesulfonyl fluoride (POSF), certain higher and lower homologues of PFOSH and POSF, and certain other chemical substances, including polymers, that are derived from PFOSH and its homologues. These chemicals are collectively referred to as perfluoroalkyl sulfonates, or PFAS. This proposed rule would require manufacturers and importers to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing the manufacture or import of these chemical substances for the significant new uses described in this document. This supplemental action takes into account comments received on an earlier proposed SNUR published in the Federal Register of October 18, 2000, amends the description and the list of chemicals to which this proposed SNUR would apply, and clarifies the definitions of significant new uses. EPA believes that this action is necessary because the PFAS component of these chemical substances may be hazardous to human health and the environment. The required notice will provide EPA with the opportunity to evaluate an intended new use and associated activities and, if necessary, to prohibit or limit that activity before it occurs. Published elsewhere in today's issue of the Federal Register is a final

      EPA is issuing a significant new use rule (SNUR) under section 5(a)(2) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for 13 chemicals, including polymers, that are derived from perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOSH) and its higher and lower homologues. These chemicals are collectively referred to as perfluoroalkyl sulfonates, or PFAS. This rule requires manufacturers and importers to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing the manufacture or import of these chemical substances for the significant new uses described in this document. EPA believes that this action is necessary because the PFAS component of these chemical substances may be hazardous to human health and the environment. The required notice will provide EPA with the opportunity to evaluate an intended new use and associated activities and, if necessary, to prohibit or limit that activity before it occurs. This action promulgates a portion of the proposed SNUR originally published in the Federal Register of October 18, 2000. This action also removes from the SNUR two chemicals that were listed erroneously in that original proposal. Published elsewhere in today's issue of the Federal

    • Airworthiness Directives; Air Tractor, Inc. Model AT-602 Airplanes
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      2 pages

      This document proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) that would apply to certain Air Tractor, Inc. (Air Tractor) Model AT-602 airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to repetitively inspect the left hand upper longeron and upper diagonal tube of the fuselage frame for cracks and repair any cracks found. This proposed AD would also require eventual modification of this area to terminate the repetitive inspection. This proposed AD is the result of reports of excessive movement in the empennage due to the loss of fuselage torsional rigidity. The actions specified by this proposed AD are intended to prevent failure of the fuselage caused by cracks. Such failure could result in loss of control of the airplane.

    • Airworthiness Directives; SOCATAGroupe AEROSPATIALE Models MS 892A-150, MS 892E-150, MS 893A, MS 893E, MS 894A, MS 894E, Rallye 150T, and Rallye 150ST Airplanes

      Rule
      Length
      2 pages

      This amendment supersedes Airworthiness Directive (AD) 77-15- 06, which applies to all SOCATA--Groupe AEROSPATIALE (Socata) Models MS 892A-150, MS 892E-150, MS 893A, MS 893E, Rallye 150T, and Rallye 150ST airplanes. AD 77-15-06 currently requires you to repetitively inspect the engine mount assembly for cracks, repair any cracks found, and modify the brackets on airplanes with right angle engine mounts. This AD is the result of the French airworthiness authority's determination that updated service information and additional aircraft should be added to the applicability of AD 77-15-06. This AD retains the inspection and repair requirements of the current AD and adds the information communicated by the French airworthiness authority. The actions specified by this AD are intended to detect and correct cracks in the engine mount assembly. Such a condition could cause the engine mount assembly to fail, which could result in loss of control of the airplane.

    • Airworthiness Directives; Textron Lycoming Division, AVCO Corporation Fuel Injected Reciprocating Engines
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      2 pages

      This document proposes the supersedure of an existing airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain Textron Lycoming fuel injected reciprocating engines, that currently requires inspection, and replacement if necessary, of externally mounted fuel injector fuel lines. Since the issuance of the existing AD, additional engine series have been identified with the potential for the same problem and necessitate being included in the list of Textron Lycoming fuel injected reciprocating engine series, to the AD's applicability. This proposal is prompted by the need to ensure that the additional Textron Lycoming fuel injected engine series listed in this proposed rule receive the same inspections as series covered by the current AD. The actions specified by the proposed AD are intended to prevent failure of the fuel injector fuel lines allowing fuel to spray into the engine compartment, resulting in an engine fire.

      To provide an incentive for the production of vehicles that can operate on certain alternative fuels as well as on regular petroleum fuels, Congress established a special procedure for calculating the fuel economy of those vehicles for the purpose of determining compliance with the Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards. This procedure increases the fuel economy attributed to such ``dual-fueled'' vehicles, thus facilitating compliance with those standards. By statute, the incentive is available through the end of the 2004 model year and may be extended by up to four additional years through rulemaking.

      This action proposes to modify existing Class E airspace at Newport, OR. Newly developed Area Navigation (RNAV) Special Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) and the certification of new weather reporting equipment at the Newport Municipal Airport has made this proposal necessary. Additional Class E 700-feet and 1,200-feet controlled airspace, above the surface of the earth is required to contain aircraft executing the RNAV RWY 16 Global Positioning System (GPS) SIAP at Newport Municipal Airport. Newport Municipal Airport currently has part-time Class E-2 airspace due to the lack of weather reporting. New weather reporting equipment has been installed and certified, therefore, this proposal also changes the Class E-2 Airspace at Newport, OR, to 24-hour operation. The intended effect of this action is to provide adequate Class E controlled airspace between the terminal and the en route phase of flight for aircraft executing Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Newport Municipal Airport, Newport, OR.

      The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is amending its regulations which establish a restricted area in waters adjacent to the Norfolk Naval Base at Norfolk, Virginia. This amendment will close off an open area on the south side of the base and changes the enforcement responsibility from the base commander to the Commander, Navy Region, Mid-Atlantic. The regulations are necessary to safeguard Navy vessels and United States Government facilities from sabotage and other subversive acts, accidents, or incidents of similar nature. These regulations are also necessary to protect the public from potentially hazardous conditions which may exist as a result of Navy use of the area.

Then, the Commission asks commenters what the equal access and nondiscrimination requirements of all these carriers should be, considering the many legal and marketplace changes that have transpired since the earlier requirements were adopted.
