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.
In accordance with Department of Justice policy, notice is hereby given that on May 22, 2007, a proposed consent decree (“Consent Decree”) in United States v. Capital Tax Corporation, et al., Civil Action No. 04-cv-04138, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
The Consent Decree would resolve claims against two of the four defendants—Steve Pedi and Frank Pedi (“Pedi Defendants”)—for (i) unreimbursed past response cost incurred by the United States related to the removal action at the National Lacquer and Paint Superfund Site (“Site”) in Chicago, Illinois; (ii) penalties and punitive damages for failure to comply with Environmental Protection Agency orders related to the Site; and (iii) fraudulent transfers of real property. Under the Consent Decree, the Pedi Defendants would pay a total of $330,000 in past response costs by December 31, 2007. This amount was determined based on Steve Pedi's ability to pay a judgment as calculated by a Department of Justice financial analyst.
The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to P.O. Box No. 7611 Washington, DC 20044-7611, and should refer to United States v. Capital Tax Corporation, et al., Civil Action No. 04-cv-04138, D.J. Ref. 90-11-2-08218.
The Consent Decree may be examined at the Office of the United States Attorney, 219 S. Dearborn Street, Suite 500, Chicago, Illinois 60604, and at U.S. EPA Region 5, 77 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago, IL 60604-4590.
