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.

This is a notice of EPA's approval of the Washington State Intersection Screening Tool (WASIST) for carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations (hot-spot analysis) for Transportation Conformity under the Clean Air Act in Washington State submitted by the Washington State Department of Transportation on November 7, 2005. This ‘different procedure' was developed through the interagency consultation process and is consistent with 40 CFR 93.105. The basis for this approval is provided by 40 CFR 93.123 (a)(1). A letter approving WASIST was sent to Washington State Department of Transportation on February 2, 2006. The purpose of WASIST is to provide a different procedure to ensure that highway projects in Washington state will not cause or contribute to any new localized CO violations or increase the frequency or severity of any existing CO violations in CO nonattainment and maintenance areas consistent with 40 CFR 93.116. This different procedure will result in a substantial cost savings to governments in Washington when making project level CO hot-spot transportation conformity demonstrations for highway projects.Start Signature
