502 Delaware Standardbred Breeders’ Fund Regulations
The State of Delaware, Department of Agriculture's Standardbred Breeders' Fund ("the Fund") hereby gives notice of its intention to adopt an amended regulation pursuant to the General Assembly's delegation of authority to do so found at 29 Del.C. §4815(b)(4)b.2 and in compliance with Delaware's Administrative Procedures Act at 29 Del.C. §10115. The proposed amended regulation under 4.2 and 9.2 removes the four (4) year old bonus program beginning with the foals of 2018 who would be four (4) year olds in 2022. This is a financial move to keep the "Fund" viable in the future.
The Fund solicits, and will consider, timely filed written comments from interested individuals and groups concerning these proposed amended regulations. The deadline for the filing of such written comments will be thirty days (30) after these proposed amended regulations are promulgated in the Delaware Register of Regulations. Any such submissions should be mailed or hand-delivered to Ms. Judy Davis-Wilson, Administrator, Delaware Standardbred Breeders' Fund Program whose address is State of Delaware, Department of Agriculture, 2320 South duPont Highway, Dover, Delaware 19901 by November 1, 2016.
Copies of the proposed regulations are available for review in the October 1, 2016 edition of the Delaware Register of Regulations, accessible online at: http://regulations.delaware.gov or by calling the Division of Public Health at (302) 744-4951.
1105 Particulate Emissions from Industrial Process Operations
1124 Control of Volatile Organic Compound Emissions
To bring Delaware’s table of global warming potentials (GWP), as shown in Table 1-1 under the definition of greenhouse gases (GHG) in Section 1.9 up-to-date with the most current federal rules for calculating the CO2 equivalent emissions (CO2e) for regulated major sources emitting GHG. In 2010, the Delaware rule was revised to require GHG permitting consistent with EPA rules which included a method for calculating those emissions based upon GWP. GHG emissions, for the purposes of the federal rule, include the aggregate of six GHG; carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), hydrofluorocarbons (HFC), perfluorocarbons (PFC), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The mass of each of these components emitted is multiplied by the EPA determined GWP for each. EPA has added 30 new compounds to the prior list of GHG bringing the total compounds to 62 and revised the GWP of 24 of the original 32.
This action proposes to amend Delaware’s tidal finfish regulations pertaining to the recreational and commercial Striped Bass fisheries. The Department removed an unnecessary harvest constraint (slot size limit) on the commercial fishery that resulted in the needless waste of Striped Bass through Emergency Secretary’s Order No. 2016-F-0027, pursuant to 29 Del.C. §10119 and 7 Del.C. §903(h) (20 DE Reg. 6 (07/01/16)). This action proposes to adopt those measures through the normal regulatory process. In addition, the proposed amendments modify Striped Bass tagging requirements for consistency with the recently adopted 7 Del.C. §943. Specifically, the amendments provide for tagging of Striped Bass by commercial harvesters at any time prior to landing and clarify that recreational anglers are not required to tag Striped Bass. Several additional measures are proposed to address tracking, reporting and quota management in the commercial fishery, as noted in Addendum III to Amendment 6 to the Atlantic Striped Bass Interstate Fishery Management Plan. Among the measures proposed are: lost tag reporting; application of weigh station tags within 12 hours of landing; and actions to be taken to ensure compliance with commercial reporting and tagging requirements.
The hearing record on the proposed changes to 7 DE Admin Code 3503 Striped Bass Recreational Fishing Seasons; Methods of Take; Creel Limit; Possession Limit; 3504 Striped Bass Possession Size Limit; Exceptions; and, 3505 Striped Bass Commercial Fishing Season; Quotas; Tagging and Reporting Requirements will be open October 1, 2016. Individuals may submit written comments regarding the proposed changes via e-mail to Lisa.Vest@state.de.us or via the USPS to Lisa Vest, Hearing Officer, DNREC, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901 (302) 739-9042. A public hearing on the proposed amendment will be held on October 24, 2016 beginning at 6:00 PM in the DNREC Auditorium, located at the Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
