NOTICES

Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed Renewal of Several Currently Approved Collections;
Comment Request [FR DOC# 2013-23067] SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act
(PRA), this document announces that EPA is planning to submit requests to renew several currently
approved Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The ICRs
are identified in this document by their corresponding titles, EPA ICR numbers, OMB Control numbers, and
related docket identification (ID) numbers. Before submitting these ICRs to OMB for review and approval,
EPA is soliciting comments on specific aspects of the information collection activities that are summarized in
this document. The ICRs and accompanying material are available for public review and comment in the
relevant dockets identified in this document for the ICR.
Product Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide Registrations [FR DOC# 2013-23392] SUMMARY: This
notice announces EPA’s order for the cancellations, voluntarily requested by the registrants and accepted by
the Agency, of the products listed in Table 1 of Unit II., pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and
Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This cancellation order follows a February 22, 2013 Federal Register Notice of
Receipt of Requests from the registrants listed in Table 2 of Unit II. to voluntarily cancel these product
registrations. In the February 22, 2013 Federal Register notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order
implementing the cancellations, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 180 day
comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrants withdrew their
requests. The Agency received one comment on the February 22, 2013 Federal Register notice but it did not
merit its further review of the request. Further, the registrants did not withdraw their request. Accordingly, EPA
hereby issues in this notice, a cancellation order, granting the requested cancellations. Any distribution, sale,
or use of the products subject to this cancellation order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this
cancellation order, including any existing stocks provisions.

Notification of a Public Teleconference of the Great Lakes Advisory Board [FR DOC# 2013-23244]
SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), on behalf of the federal Great Lakes Restoration
Initiative (GLRI) Task Force agencies, announces a public teleconference of the Great Lakes Advisory Board
(GLAB). The purpose of the teleconference is for the GLAB to discuss its draft recommendations that will
inform the development of a draft Great Lakes Restoration Initiative FY 2015-2019 Action Plan.

Registration Review; Pesticide Dockets Opened for Review and Commen [FR DOC# 2013-23393]
SUMMARY: With this document, EPA is opening the public comment period for several registration reviews.
Registration review is EPA’s periodic review of pesticide registrations to ensure that each pesticide continues
to satisfy the statutory standard for registration, that is, the pesticide can perform its intended function without
unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. Registration review dockets contain
information that will assist the public in understanding the types of information and issues that the Agency
may consider during the course of registration reviews. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that each
pesticide’s registration is based on current scientific and other knowledge, including its effects on human
health and the environment. This document announces the Agency’s intent not to open a registration review
docket for dithianon (case <greek-i>7048) and flufenoxuron (cast <greek-i>7444). These cases do not
currently have actively registered products and are not, therefore, scheduled for review under the registration
review program.

PROPOSED RULES

Approval of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Navajo Nation; Regional Haze Requirements for Navajo
Generating Station; Extension of Public Comment Period [FR DOC# 2013-23246] SUMMARY: On February
5, 2013, EPA proposed a Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART) determination for oxides of nitrogen
(NO<INF>X</INF>) for the Navajo Generating Station (NGS), located on the Navajo Nation, and provided a
three-month period to accept public comments that was scheduled to close on May 6, 2013. At the request of
interested stakeholders, EPA extended the comment period on two occasions, first on March 19, 2013, and
again on July 9, 2013. The comment period was scheduled to close October 4, 2013. Additionally, on June
19, 2013, EPA announced our intention to hold five public hearings to accept written and oral comment on our
proposed BART determination for NGS. On July 26, 2013, a group of stakeholders, known as the Technical
Work Group (TWG), submitted its recommendation for an additional BART Alternative to EPA for
consideration (TWG Alternative). EPA is in the process of evaluating this alternative. Because EPA has not
yet announced the schedule for the public hearings, and because EPA is still evaluating the TWG Alternative
and may supplement our February 5, 2013 proposal, EPA is extending the comment period an additional
three months. EPA intends to hold the public hearings prior to the close of this extended comment period and
to announce the schedule shortly.
Louisiana: Final Authorization of State-initiated Changes and Incorporation by Reference of State Hazardous
Waste Management Program [FR DOC# 2013-22969] SUMMARY: During a review of Louisiana’s
regulations, EPA identified a variety of State-initiated changes to Louisiana’s hazardous waste program under
the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, for which the State had not previously
sought authorization. EPA proposes to authorize the State for the program changes. In addition, EPA
proposes to codify in the regulations entitled “Approved State Hazardous Waste Management Programs”,
Louisiana’s authorized hazardous waste program. The EPA will incorporate by reference into the Code of
Federal Regulations (CFR) those provisions of the State regulations that are authorized and that EPA will
enforce under RCRA.

RULES

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Kentucky; Stage II Requirements for Enterprise
Holdings, Inc. at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in Boone County [FR DOC# 2013-22973]
SUMMARY: EPA is taking final action to approve a source-specific State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision
submitted to EPA by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, through the Kentucky Division for Air Quality (KDAQ)
on April 25, 2013, for the purpose of exempting an Enterprise Holdings, Inc., facility from the Clean Air Act
(CAA or Act) Stage II vapor control requirements. The subject Enterprise Holdings, Inc., facility is currently
being constructed at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in Boone County, Kentucky. EPA’s
approval of this revision to Kentucky’s SIP is based on the December 12, 2006, EPA policy memorandum
from Stephen D. Page, entitled “Removal of Stage II Vapor Recovery in Situations Where Widespread Use
of Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery is Demonstrated.” This action is being taken pursuant to the CAA.
Louisiana: Final Authorization of State-Initiated Changes and Incorporation by Reference of Approved State
Hazardous Waste Management Program[FR DOC# 2013-22972] SUMMARY: During a review of Louisiana’s
regulations, the EPA identified a variety of State-initiated changes to its hazardous waste program under the
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). We have determined that these changes are minor and
satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization and are authorizing the State-initiated
changes through this direct Final action. In addition, this document corrects technical errors made in the
June 28, 2012 Federal Register authorization document for Louisiana. The Solid Waste Disposal Act, as
amended, commonly referred to as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), allows the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to authorize States to operate their hazardous waste management
programs in lieu of the Federal program. The EPA uses the regulations entitled “Approved State Hazardous
Waste Management Programs” to provide notice of the authorization status of State programs and to
incorporate by reference those provisions of the State statutes and regulations that will be subject to the
EPA’s inspection and enforcement. The rule codifies in the regulations the prior approval of Louisiana’s
hazardous waste management program and incorporates by reference authorized provisions of the State’s
statutes and regulations.

FD&C Blue No. 1; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-23371] SUMMARY: This
regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of FD&C Blue No. 1
(CAS Reg. No. 3844-45-9) when used as an inert ingredient (dye) in pesticides formulation applied to growing
crops (seed treatment). Exponent on behalf of Sensient Colors, LLC submitted a petition to EPA under the
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting establishment of an exemption from the
requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for
residues of FD&C Blue No. 1.
