This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Environmental Protection Agency.
Notice of proposed settlement.
Under sections 104, 106(a), 107 and 122 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), approximately 24 parties (Respondents) entered into an Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), whereby the Respondents agreed to perform response activities at the Red Panther Pesticide Superfund Site (Site) located in Clarksdale, Coahoma County, Mississippi. Section VII of the AOC provides for the reimbursement of EPA's past and future response costs by the Respondents. Under the terms of the AOC, section VII is subject to section 122(i) of CERCLA, which requires EPA to publish notice of the proposed settlement in the Federal Register for a thirty (30) day public comment period. EPA will consider public comments on section VII of the AOC for thirty days. EPA may withhold consent to all or part of section VII of the AOC if comments received disclose facts or considerations which indicate that section VII of the AOC is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate.
