EIS providers that caused or were involved in the

Secretary’s determination under §303.703(b)(1).

Changes: We have added to §303.705(c)(1)(ii) a reference

to “EIS programs” and the phrase “if the lead agency does

not provide Part C funds to the EIS program,”.

Public attention (§303.706)

Comment: A few commenters stated that §303.706 should not

specify the methods of public notification that States must

use, and that the public notification language in §303.706

should be the same as the language in the corresponding Part B regulation, which allows the State to determine the methods of notification to the public.

Discussion: The public notification requirement in

§303.706 is consistent with other public reporting

requirements in subpart H of these regulations, specifically the public reporting requirements relating to the SPP and APRs and public reporting on EIS program

performance in §303.702(b)(1)(i)(B). The Department’s

position is that it is important for States to provide information to the public related to its monitoring and enforcement actions in a consistent manner. Therefore, we

decline to revise §303.706 as requested by the commenters.

Changes: None.
