REGISTER INFORMATION PAGE
Vol. 30 Iss. 17 - April 21, 2014

The Virginia Register OF REGULATIONS is an official state publication issued every other week throughout the year. Indexes are published quarterly, and are cumulative for the year. The Virginia Register has several functions. The new and amended sections of regulations, both as proposed and as finally adopted, are required by law to be published in the Virginia Register. In addition, the Virginia Register is a source of other information about state government, including petitions for rulemaking, emergency regulations, executive orders issued by the Governor, and notices of public hearings on regulations.

ADOPTION, AMENDMENT, AND REPEAL OF REGULATIONS

An agency wishing to adopt, amend, or repeal regulations must first publish in the Virginia Register a notice of intended regulatory action; a basis, purpose, substance and issues statement; an economic impact analysis prepared by the Department of Planning and Budget; the agency’s response to the economic impact analysis; a summary; a notice giving the public an opportunity to comment on the proposal; and the text of the proposed regulation.

Following publication of the proposal in the Virginia Register, the promulgating agency receives public comments for a minimum of 60 days. The Governor reviews the proposed regulation to determine if it is necessary to protect the public health, safety and welfare, and if it is clearly written and easily understandable. If the Governor chooses to comment on the proposed regulation, his comments must be transmitted to the agency and the Registrar no later than 15 days following the completion of the 60-day public comment period. The Governor’s comments, if any, will be published in the Virginia Register. Not less than 15 days following the completion of the 60-day public comment period, the agency may adopt the proposed regulation.

The Joint Commission on Administrative Rules (JCAR) or the appropriate standing committee of each house of the General Assembly may meet during the promulgation or final adoption process and file an objection with the Registrar and the promulgating agency. The objection will be published in the Virginia Register. Within 21 days after receipt by the agency of a legislative objection, the agency shall file a response with the Registrar, the objecting legislative body, and the Governor.

When final action is taken, the agency again publishes the text of the regulation as adopted, highlighting all changes made to the proposed regulation and explaining any substantial changes made since publication of the proposal. A 30-day final adoption period begins upon final publication in the Virginia Register.

The Governor may review the final regulation during this time and, if he objects, forward his objection to the Registrar and the agency. In addition to or in lieu of filing a formal objection, the Governor may suspend the effective date of a portion or all of a regulation until the end of the next regular General Assembly session by issuing a directive signed by a majority of the members of the appropriate legislative body and the Governor. The Governor’s objection or suspension of the regulation, or both, will be published in the Virginia Register. If the Governor finds that changes made to the proposed regulation have substantial impact, he may require the agency to provide an additional 30-day public comment period on the changes. Notice of the additional public comment period required by the Governor will be published in the Virginia Register.

The agency shall suspend the regulatory process for 30 days when it receives requests from 25 or more individuals to solicit additional public comment, unless the agency determines that the changes have minor or inconsequential impact.

A regulation becomes effective at the conclusion of the 30-day final adoption period, or at any other later date specified by the promulgating agency, unless (i) a legislative objection has been filed, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the 21-day objection period; (ii) the Governor exercises his authority to require the agency to provide for additional public comment, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the period for which the Governor has provided for additional public comment; (iii) the Governor and the General Assembly exercise their authority to suspend the effective date of a regulation until the end of the next regular legislative session; or (iv) the agency suspends the regulatory process, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the 30-day public comment period and no earlier than 15 days from publication of the readopted action.

A regulatory action may be withdrawn by the promulgating agency at any time before the regulation becomes final.

FAST-TRACK RULEMAKING PROCESS

Section 2.2-4012.1 of the Code of Virginia provides an exemption from certain provisions of the Administrative Process Act for agency regulations deemed by the Governor to be noncontroversial.  To use this process, Governor's concurrence is required and advance notice must be provided to certain legislative committees.  Fast-track regulations will become effective on the date noted in the regulatory action if no objections to using the process are filed in accordance with § 2.2-4012.1.

EMERGENCY REGULATIONS

Pursuant to § 2.2-4011 of the Code of Virginia, an agency, upon consultation with the Attorney General, and at the discretion of the Governor, may adopt emergency regulations that are necessitated by an emergency situation. An agency may also adopt an emergency regulation when Virginia statutory law or the appropriation act or federal law or federal regulation requires that a regulation be effective in 280 days or less from its enactment. The emergency regulation becomes operative upon its adoption and filing with the Registrar of Regulations, unless a later date is specified. Emergency regulations are limited to no more than 18 months in duration; however, may be extended for six months under certain circumstances as provided for in § 2.2-4011 D. Emergency regulations are published as soon as possible in the Register.

During the time the emergency status is in effect, the agency may proceed with the adoption of permanent regulations through the usual procedures. To begin promulgating the replacement regulation, the agency must (i) file the Notice of Intended Regulatory Action with the Registrar within 60 days of the effective date of the emergency regulation and (ii) file the proposed regulation with the Registrar within 180 days of the effective date of the emergency regulation. If the agency chooses not to adopt the regulations, the emergency status ends when the prescribed time limit expires.

STATEMENT

The foregoing constitutes a generalized statement of the procedures to be followed. For specific statutory language, it is suggested that Article 2 (§ 2.2-4006 et seq.) of Chapter 40 of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia be examined carefully.

REGULATIONS
Vol. 30 Iss. 17 - April 21, 2014

TITLE 1. ADMINISTRATION
STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS
Proposed Regulation

REGISTRAR'S NOTICE: The State Board of Elections is claiming an exemption from the Administrative Process Act pursuant to § 2.2-4002 B 8 of the Code of Virginia, which exempts agency action relating to the conduct of elections or eligibility to vote.

Title of Regulation: 1VAC20-40. Voter Registration (amending 1VAC20-40-10; adding 1VAC20-40-90).

Statutory Authority: §§ 24.2-103 and 24.2-404 of the Code of Virginia; 42 USC 1973gg-6.

Public Hearing Information:

May 14, 2014 - 9 a.m. - General Assembly Building, 201 North Ninth Street, House Room C, Richmond VA

Public Comment Deadline: May 12, 2014.

Agency Contact: Myron McClees, State Board of Elections, 1100 Bank Street, Richmond, VA 23219, telephone (804) 864-8949, FAX (804) 786-0760, or email myron.mcclees@sbe.virginia.gov.

Background: Pursuant to Chapter 725 of the 2013 Acts of Assembly, which requires a new voter identification standard effective July 1, 2014, the State Board of Elections is proposing amendments to its voter registration regulations related to the creation of voter photo identification cards. Subdivision A 3 of § 24.2-404 of the Code of Virginia requires that the State Board of Elections provide a card bearing a voter's photograph to any requesting registered voter who does not already possess one of the acceptable identification cards listed in subsection B of § 24.2-643 of the Code of Virginia.

Summary:

The proposed amendments (i) establish the situations when a voter can request a voter photo identification card and the requirements that a voter must meet prior to the issuance of a card; (ii) provide that general registrars may, but are not required to, solicit applications for voter photo identification cards outside of their general registrars' offices; (iii) provide guidance for the issuance of a temporary identification document and for replacement cards; and (iv) contain a provision stating that a person's inclusion in the Department of Motor Vehicles database does not exclude such person from receiving a voter photo identification card; and (v) designate applications for voter photo identification cards as registration records unavailable for public inspection but retained by the general registrars for a period of time.

Article 1
General Provisions

1VAC20-40-10. Definitions.

The following words and terms when used in this chapter shall have the following meanings unless the context clearly indicates otherwise:

"Abode" or "place of abode" means a physical place where a person dwells. One may have multiple places of abode, such as a second home.

"Address" or "residence address" for purposes of voter registration and address confirmation means the address of residence in the precinct required for voter registration. An alternative mailing address may be included on a voter registration application when: (i) the residence address of the applicant cannot receive mail; or (ii) the voter is otherwise eligible by law to provide an alternative mailing address. Alternative mailing addresses must be sufficient to enable the delivery of mail by the United States Postal Service. The post office box for published lists may be provided either by the United States Postal Service or a commercial mail receiving agency (CMRA) described in the United States Postal Service Domestic Mail Manual.

"Domicile" means a person's primary home, the place where a person dwells and which he considers to be the center of his domestic, social, and civil life. Domicile is primarily a matter of intention, supported by an individual's factual circumstances. Once a person has established domicile, establishing a new domicile requires that he intentionally abandon his old domicile. For any applicant, the registrar shall presume that domicile is at the address of residence given by the person on the application. The registrar shall not solicit evidence to rebut this presumption if the application appears to be legitimate, except as provided in 1VAC20-40-40 B and C.

"Residence," "residency," or "resident" for all purposes of qualification to register and vote means and requires both domicile and a place of abode.

"Voter photo identification card" means the official voter registration card containing the voter's photograph and signature referenced in § 24.2-404 A 3 of the Code of Virginia.

1VAC20-40-90. Voter photo identification cards.

A. Pursuant to the requirements of § 24.2-404 of the Code of Virginia, a voter who does not have an acceptable form of identification listed in § 24.2-643 of the Code of Virginia may obtain a voter photo identification card free of charge through any general registrar's office if:

1. The voter completes and signs a voter identification card application form;

2. The voter's information is correct in the voter registration system;

3. A photograph of the voter is taken by the general registrar or the registrar's designated staff; and

4. The voter's signature is captured by the general registrar or the registrar's designated staff.

B. Any voter applying for the voter photo identification card whose record in the voter registration system is materially inaccurate or incomplete will be issued a card after the information has been corrected and updated within the system. Such voter may be provided with a temporary identification document if the voter's application for the voter photo identification card is made after the deadline for registering to vote in the next most proximate election in which the voter is eligible to vote. The temporary identification document shall be considered an acceptable form of identification and is valid for 30 days after its issuance.

C. A person who is unregistered may apply for a voter photo identification card, and will be provided with the card upon approval of the submitted application for voter registration. A person who is unregistered may not be provided with a temporary identification document.

D. General registrars may solicit applicants for voter photo identification cards at locations other than their offices. No general registrar shall be required to offer this service.

E. A voter's inclusion in the Department of Motor Vehicle's database will not exclude such person from being eligible to receive a voter photo identification card so long as the person affirms he is not in possession of the identification document.

F. A voter may request a replacement voter photo identification card if (i) the original card is damaged, lost, or stolen; (ii) the voter's appearance has changed substantially; or (iii) eight years have elapsed since the issuance date upon the card.

G. Applications for voter photo identification cards shall be (i) considered "registration records," as defined in § 24.2-101 of the Code of Virginia; (ii) unavailable for public inspection as provided in § 24.2-444 C of the Code of Virginia; and (iii) retained by the registrar as provided by subdivision 8 of § 24.2-114 and the applicable Library of Virginia retention schedule for local election records.

MARINE RESOURCES COMMISSION
Final Regulation

REGISTRAR'S NOTICE: The Marine Resources Commission is claiming an exemption from Article 2 of the Administrative Process Act in accordance with § 2.2-4006 A 11 of the Code of Virginia; however, the commission is required to publish the full text of final regulations.

Title of Regulation: 4VAC20-950. Pertaining to Black Sea Bass (amending 4VAC20-950-47, 4VAC20-950-48).

Statutory Authority: § 28.2-201 of the Code of Virginia.

Effective Date: April 1, 2014.

Agency Contact: Jane Warren, Agency Regulatory Coordinator, Marine Resources Commission, 2600 Washington Avenue, 3rd Floor, Newport News, VA 23607, telephone (757) 247-2248, FAX (757) 247-2002, or email betty.warren@mrc.virginia.gov.

Summary:

The amendments (i) establish the 2014 commercial black sea bass quota as 434,000 pounds and (ii) change the common name of the squid species from "Loligo" to "Longfin" squid.

4VAC20-950-47. Commercial harvest quotas.

A. The 2013 2014 commercial black sea bass directed fishery quota is 394,000 pounds. When it has been announced that the directed fishery quota has been projected as reached and the directed fishery has been closed, it shall be unlawful for any directed commercial black sea bass fishery permittee to possess aboard any vessel or land in Virginia any black sea bass.

B. The 2013 2014 commercial black sea bass bycatch fishery quota is 40,000 pounds. When it has been announced that the bycatch fishery quota has been projected as reached and the bycatch fishery has been closed, it shall be unlawful for any bycatch commercial black sea bass fishery permittee to possess aboard any vessel or land in Virginia any black sea bass. In the event the bycatch fishery quota is exceeded, the amount of the quota overage shall be deducted from the following year's bycatch fishing quota.

4VAC20-950-48. Individual fishery quotas; bycatch limit; at sea harvesters; exceptions.

A. Each person possessing a directed fishery permit shall be assigned an individual fishery quota, in pounds, for each calendar year. A person's individual fishery quota shall be equal to that person's percentage of the total landings of black sea bass in Virginia from July 1, 1997, through December 31, 2001, multiplied by the directed commercial fishery black sea bass quota for the calendar year. Any directed fishery permittee shall be limited to landings in Virginia in the amount of his individual fishery quota, in pounds, in any calendar year and it shall be unlawful for any permittee to exceed his individual fishery quota. In addition to the penalties prescribed by law, any overages of an individual's fishery quota shall be deducted from that permittee's individual fishery quota for the following year.

B. In the determination of a person's percentage of total landings, the commission shall use the greater amount of landings from either the National Marine Fisheries Service Dealer Weigh-out Reports or National Marine Fisheries Service Vessel Trip Reports that have been reported and filed as of November 26, 2002. If a person's percentage of the total landings of black sea bass is determined by using the Vessel Trip Reports as the greater amount, then the person shall provide documentation to the Marine Resources Commission to verify the Vessel Trip Reports as accurate. This documentation may include dealer receipts of sales or other pertinent documentation, and such documentation shall be submitted to the commission by December 1, 2004. In the event the commission is not able to verify the full amount of the person's Vessel Trip Reports for the qualifying period, the commission shall use the greater amount of landings, from either the Dealer Weigh-Out Reports or the verified portion of the Vessel Trip Reports to establish that person's share of the quota.

C. It shall be unlawful for any person harvesting black sea bass to possess aboard any vessel in Virginia waters any amount of black sea bass that exceeds the combined total of any portion of the Virginia permitted landing limit, as described in subsection A of this section, and the North Carolina legal landing limit.

D. It shall be unlawful for any person permitted for the bycatch fishery to do any of the following:

1. Possess aboard a vessel or land in Virginia more than 200 pounds of black sea bass in addition to the North Carolina legal landing limit or trip limit, in any one day, except as provided in subdivision 2 of this subsection;

2. Possess aboard a vessel or land in Virginia more than 1,000 pounds of black sea bass in addition to the North Carolina legal landing limit or trip limit, in any one day, provided that the total weight of black sea bass on board the vessel does not exceed 10%, by weight, of the total weight of summer flounder, scup, Loligo Longfin squid, and Atlantic mackerel on board the vessel; or

3. Possess aboard a vessel or land in Virginia more than 100 pounds of black sea bass in addition to the North Carolina legal landing limit or trip limit, when it is projected and announced that 75% of the bycatch fishery quota has been taken.

E. It shall be unlawful for any person to transfer black sea bass from one vessel to another while at sea.

F. Any hardship exception quota granted by the commission prior to October 27, 2009, shall be converted to a percentage of the directed fishery quota based on the year in which that hardship exception quota was originally granted. The hardship exception quota shall not be transferred for a period of five years from the date the commission granted that hardship exception quota.

G. An individual fishery quota, as described in subsection A of this section, shall be equal to an individual's current percentage share of the directed fishery quota, as described in 4VAC20-950-47 A.

Summary:

The amendments to the regulations governing payday lenders define the terms "prepaid card" and "short-maturity loan," as well as prohibit licensed payday lenders (licensees) from obtaining an agreement from a borrower that gives the licensee or a third party the authority to prepare a check that is drawn on the borrower's deposit account. The amendments also (i) require licensees and former licensees to maintain their contact information with the Bureau of Financial Institutions until they have no outstanding payday loans, (ii) require licensees to dispose of records containing consumers' personal financial information in a secure manner, (iii) specify additional events that require licensees to file a written report with the bureau, (iv) update the text of the payday lending pamphlet to reflect other amendments to 10VAC5-200, (v) prescribe disclosure requirements for licensees' advertisements, (vi) identify the circumstances under which the Commissioner of Financial Institutions shall deem a licensee or former licensee to have ceased business for purposes of authorizing the database provider to administratively close any outstanding loan in the database, (vii) eliminate several obsolete provisions relating to the payday lending database, (viii) clarify that certain payday lending data is not confidential and may be furnished by the database provider to the public, (ix) clarify that a licensee is permitted to print a replacement security check for a borrower at such time that the borrower makes a payment on an extended payment plan or an extended term loan, and (x) add "print media proofs" to the advertising retention requirements. Various technical and other clarifying amendments are also included.

AT RICHMOND, MARCH 25, 2014

COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, ex rel.

STATE CORPORATION COMMISSION

CASE NO. BFI-2013-00070

Ex Parte: In re: Payday Lending

ORDER ADOPTING REGULATIONS

On September 3, 2013, the State Corporation Commission ("Commission") entered an Order to Take Notice of a proposal by the Bureau of Financial Institutions ("Bureau") to amend the Commission's regulations governing licensed payday lenders, which are set forth in Chapter 200 of Title 10 of the Virginia Administrative Code, 10 VAC 5-200-10 et seq. The Order to Take Notice and proposed regulations were published in the Virginia Register of Regulations on September 23, 2013, posted on the Commission's website, and sent to all licensed payday lenders and other interested parties. Licensees and other interested parties were afforded the opportunity to file written comments or request a hearing on or before October 25, 2013.

Comments on the proposed regulations were filed by Carla Stone Witzel, Esquire, of Gordon Feinblatt, LLC; Meade Spotts, Esquire, of Spotts Fain PC; and David B. Irvin, Senior Assistant Attorney General, of the Office of the Attorney General. The Commission did not receive any requests for a hearing.

Ms. Witzel indicated in her comments that the proposed addition of "debit card" to the definition of "good funds instrument" in 10 VAC 5-200-10 and to the payday lending pamphlet text in 10 VAC 5-200-80 conflicts with the prohibition against electronically debiting a borrower's deposit account or otherwise obtaining any funds from a borrower by electronic means. Accordingly, Ms. Witzel recommended that the Commission add an exception for debit cards to 10 VAC 5-200-20 H.1

Also, in 10 VAC 5-200-20 H, Mr. Spotts suggested that licensees should be permitted to print a check on behalf of a borrower, at the borrower's request, at such time as the borrower makes a partial payment, or a payment on an extended payment plan or an extended term loan. These checks would be drawn on the borrower's deposit account and would replace the original security check, so that the security check held by the licensee would reflect the borrower's reduced loan balance.

Mr. Irvin recommended deleting the words "following the expiration of any applicable record retention periods" from 10 VAC 5-200-20 P and adding a sentence which provides that a licensee or former licensee must abide by the record retention requirements set forth in § 6.2-1809 of the Code of Virginia. In 10 VAC 5-200-85 B, Mr. Irvin proposed adding a requirement that any mailing sent by a licensee to a consumer contain the name and address of the payday lender as set forth in the license issued by the Commission in the space for a return address on the outside of the envelope. Mr. Irvin also proposed adding "print media proofs" to 10 VAC 5-200-85 E.

The Bureau considered the comments filed and responded to them in its Statements of Position, which the Bureau filed with the Clerk of the Commission on February 12, 2014. Based on its responses, the Bureau stated that it is amenable to (1) adding language in 10 VAC 5-200-20 H that clarifies that a licensee is permitted to print a replacement security check for a borrower at such time that the borrower makes a payment on an extended payment plan or an extended term loan; (2) deleting the words "following the expiration of any applicable record retention periods" from the first sentence of 10 VAC 5-200-20 P; and (3) adding "print media proofs" to 10 VAC 5-200-85 E. Apart from also adding language to the text of the payday lending pamphlet in 10 VAC 5-200-80 to reflect the changes made to 10 VAC 5-200-20 H, the Bureau otherwise recommended that the Commission adopt the proposed regulations as proposed.

NOW THE COMMISSION, having considered the proposed regulations, the comments filed, the Bureau's Statements of Position, the record herein, and applicable law, concludes that the proposed regulations should be modified to incorporate certain suggestions that were made by commenters and the Bureau. The Commission further concludes that the proposed regulations, as modified, should be adopted with an effective date of May 1, 2014, so that licensees have a reasonable period of time in which to implement the amendments to the regulations.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED THAT:

(1) The proposed regulations, as modified herein and attached hereto, are adopted effective May 1, 2014.

(2) This Order and the attached regulations shall be posted on the Commission's website at: http://www.scc.virginia.gov/case.

(3) The Commission's Division of Information Resources shall provide a copy of this Order, including a copy of the attached regulations, to the Virginia Registrar of Regulations for publication in the Virginia Register of Regulations.

(4) This case is dismissed, and the papers filed herein shall be placed in the Commission's file for ended causes.

AN ATTESTED COPY hereof, together with a copy of the attached regulations, shall be sent by the Clerk of the Commission to the Commission's Office of General Counsel and the Commissioner of Financial Institutions, who shall forthwith send a copy of this Order, together with a copy of


the attached regulations, to all licensed payday lenders and such other interested parties as he may designate.

________________________________________________

1 We considered Ms. Witzel's comment and agree with the Bureau that adding "debit card" to the definition of "good funds instrument" in 10 VAC 5-200-10 does not conflict with the prohibition in 10 VAC 5-200-20 H. A borrower that uses a debit card to make a payment on a payday loan initiates the financial transaction, as opposed to the licensee initiating the payment and debiting the borrower's deposit account or otherwise obtaining funds from the borrower by electronic means.

B. If a borrower does not obtain an extended payment plan or extended term loan in connection with his fifth payday loan in 180 days, the borrower shall not be eligible for another payday loan until 45 days after the date the fifth payday loan is paid or otherwise satisfied in full.

C. If a borrower previously obtained an extended payment plan within the preceding 12-month period, the borrower shall not be eligible to repay a fifth payday loan obtained in any rolling 180-day period by means of an extended payment plan. However, if an eligible borrower elects to repay a fifth payday loan obtained in any rolling 180-day period by means of an extended payment plan, the provisions of 10VAC5-200-33 shall apply. A borrower who elects to repay such loan by means of an extended payment plan shall not be eligible for another payday loan until 90 days after the borrower has repaid or satisfied in full the balance of the loan.

D. The following provisions shall apply to extended term loans.

1. An extended term loan is a payday loan, as this term is defined in § 6.2-1800 of the Code of Virginia. As with other payday loans, an extended term loan shall be secured by a check that does not exceed the sum of the principal amount advanced to the borrower and the interest and fees permitted by § 6.2-1817 of the Code of Virginia. The check used to secure an extended term loan shall be dated as of the date the final installment is due. A licensee shall not require or accept multiple checks or any additional or alternative security in connection with an extended term loan. A borrower shall have the option of exchanging security checks with a licensee at the time the borrower makes a payment on an extended term loan. If a borrower wishes to exchange security checks, a licensee shall upon receipt of the payment return the check held as security to the borrower and the borrower shall deliver to the licensee a replacement security check, dated as of the date the final installment is due, for the remaining amount owed to the licensee.

2. If an eligible borrower elects an extended term loan, a licensee shall permit the borrower to repay the amount owed in four equal installments over a term of 60 days. The dollar amount of each installment shall be the same and the installment due dates shall be spread out evenly over the term of the extended term loan (i.e., an installment shall be due every 15 days).

3. The terms of an extended term loan shall be set forth in a written agreement signed and dated by the borrower. An eligible borrower may elect the extended term loan option only on the date a payday loan is made.

4. A borrower who obtains an extended term loan shall not be eligible for another payday loan during the longer of 90 days following the date the extended term loan is paid or otherwise satisfied in full, or 150 days following the date the extended term loan is obtained. Subject to one of the applicable waiting periods associated with a fifth loan in any rolling 180-day period, a borrower may be eligible for consecutive extended term loans or multiple extended term loans in any rolling 12-month period.

5. A licensee shall immediately give a borrower receipts, signed and dated by the licensee, for all payments made in connection with an extended term loan. The receipts shall also state the loan balance due after each payment.

6. A licensee shall retain the written and signed extended term loan agreement and provide the borrower with a duplicate original. A licensee shall also retain copies of receipts provided in accordance with subdivision 5 of this subsection. Upon full repayment or satisfaction of an extended term loan, a licensee shall mark the original extended term loan agreement with the word "paid" or "canceled," return it to the borrower, and retain a copy in its loan records.

E. A licensee shall provide notice to borrowers of the potential availability of the extended term loan option in accordance with the provisions of this subsection.

1. A licensee shall conspicuously post in each licensed location a written notice in at least 24-point bold type informing borrowers that they may be eligible to obtain an extended term loan. The minimum size for such written notice shall be 24 inches by 18 inches.

2. The title of the written notice, which shall appear in at least 48-point bold type, shall be "NOTICE – EXTENDED TERM LOANS AVAILABLE TO BORROWERS OBTAINING A FIFTH PAYDAY LOAN WITHIN 180 DAYS."

3. The required text of the written notice shall be as follows:

The Payday Loan Act Chapter 18 (§ 6.2-1800 et seq.) of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia gives borrowers obtaining their fifth payday loan within 180 days the option to receive it in the form of an extended term loan. An extended term loan is a payday loan under which you are permitted to repay the amount you owe in four equal installments spread out evenly over a term of 60 days. You may obtain an extended term loan even if you previously obtained another extended term loan or an extended payment plan. If you want an extended term loan, you must choose this option on the date you obtain the payday loan. When you make a payment on an extended term loan, you will have the option of providing a replacement security check for the remaining amount you owe. Please be advised that if you obtain an extended term loan, you will not be permitted to get another payday loan from any lender for a period of 90 days after you fully repay or satisfy the extended term loan or 150 days after you obtain the extended term loan (whichever is longer). However, even if you do not choose an installment payment arrangement, you will still be unable to obtain another payday loan from any lender for a period of 45 days after you fully repay or satisfy your fifth payday loan.

4. If the payday lending database referred to in 10VAC5-200-110 advises a licensee that an applicant is eligible for an extended term loan, the licensee shall immediately provide oral notice to the applicant that (i) the applicant is eligible to obtain an extended term loan; (ii) information about extended term loans may be found on the poster in the licensee's office or in the "Borrower Rights and Responsibilities" pamphlet; and (iii) the licensee is available to answer any questions that the applicant may have about extended term loans. When providing this notice, the licensee shall also direct the applicant to the specific locations of both the poster referred to in subdivision 1 of this subsection and the section of the pamphlet entitled "Five Payday Loans within 180 days." In addition, if the payday lending database advises a licensee that an applicant is eligible for an extended payment plan, the licensee shall also comply with subdivision C 4 of 10VAC5-200-33.

F. Payday loans made prior to January 1, 2009, shall not be considered for purposes of determining how many loans a borrower obtained in any rolling 180-day period.

10VAC5-200-50. Responding to requests from the Bureau of Financial Institutions; providing false, misleading, or deceptive information.

A. When the bureau requests a written response, books, records, documentation, or other information from a licensee in connection with the bureau's investigation, enforcement, or examination of compliance with applicable laws, the licensee shall deliver a written response as well as any requested books, records, documentation, or information within the time period specified in the bureau's request. If no time period is specified, a written response as well as any requested books, records, documentation, or information shall be delivered by the licensee to the bureau not later than 30 days from the date of such request. In determining the specified time period for responding to the bureau and when considering a request for an extension of time to respond, the bureau shall take into consideration the volume and complexity of the requested written response, books, records, documentation, or information, and such other factors as the bureau determines to be relevant under the circumstances.

B. A licensee shall not provide any false, misleading, or deceptive information to the bureau.

C. Requests made by the bureau pursuant to subsection A are deemed to be in furtherance of the bureau's investigation and examination authority provided for in § 6.2-1813 of the Code of Virginia.

The required text of the payday lending pamphlet referred to in 10VAC5-200-30 is as follows:

PAYDAY LENDING IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA

BORROWER RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Please take the time to carefully review the information contained in this pamphlet. It is designed to advise you of your rights and responsibilities in connection with obtaining a payday loan in Virginia under the Payday Loan Act, § 6.1-444 et seq. Chapter 18 (§ 6.2-1800 et seq.) of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia. If you have any questions about payday lending or want additional information, you may contact the Virginia State Corporation Commission's Bureau of Financial Institutions toll-free at (800) 552-7945 or on the Internet at http://www.scc.virginia.gov/bfi. The Bureau of Financial Institutions has available a "Consumer Guide to Payday Lending" that may be viewed at this website or obtained by calling the toll-free telephone number listed above.

In General: You are responsible for evaluating whether a payday loan is right for you. Alternatives may include among other things less expensive short-term financing from another financial institution, family, or friends, a cash advance on a credit card, an account with overdraft protection, or a loan repayable over several months.

Advertisements: A lender is prohibited from sending you an envelope or other written material that gives the false impression that it is an official communication from a governmental entity, unless it is required by the United States Postal Service.

Notice from Lender: The lender is required to provide you with a clear and conspicuous printed notice advising you that a payday loan is not intended to meet long-term financial needs and that you should use a payday loan only to meet occasional or unusual short-term cash needs.

Information from Lender: Virginia law prohibits the lender from providing you with any false, misleading, or deceptive information.

Payday Lending Database: Before making a payday loan to you, a lender is required by Virginia law to access a database that contains detailed information about payday loans made to Virginia residents by all lenders licensed to do business in Virginia. The database will inform the lender whether you are eligible for a payday loan. The Bureau of Financial Institutions is unable to advise you of your eligibility for a payday loan. If you are ineligible for a payday loan, the lender will provide you with the toll-free telephone number of the database provider, which you can use to find out the specific reason for your ineligibility. To enable the lender to check the database, you will be required to provide the lender with a written loan application and your original driver's license or identification card issued by a state driver's licensing authority (e.g., Department of Motor Vehicles for the Commonwealth of Virginia). If you wish to obtain a payday loan but do not have a driver's license or identification card, you will need to obtain a driver's license or identification card from the driver's licensing authority in your home state.

Prohibition on Loans to Individuals with Certain Previous or Outstanding Loans: Virginia law prohibits a lender from making a payday loan to you if (i) you currently have an outstanding payday loan; (ii) you paid or satisfied in full a previous payday loan on the same day that you are applying for a new payday loan; (iii) in the past 90 days you paid or satisfied in full a previous payday loan by means of an extended payment plan; (iv) in the past 45 days you paid or satisfied in full a fifth payday loan that you obtained within a period of 180 days; (v) in the past 90 days you paid or satisfied in full an extended term loan; or (vi) in the past 150 days you entered into an extended term loan.

It is important to note that the previous or outstanding payday loans referred to above include loans made by the same lender as well as any other lender conducting payday lending business in Virginia.

Prohibition on Loans to Members of the Military and their Spouses and Dependents: Virginia law prohibits lenders from making payday loans to members of the military services of the United States as well as their spouses and dependents. If you are a regular or reserve member of the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, or National Guard serving on active duty under a call or order that does not specify a period of 30 days or fewer, the lender is prohibited from making a payday loan to you. The lender is also prohibited from making a loan to you if (i) you are married to such a member, (ii) you are less than 18 years old and the son or daughter of such a member, or (iii) more than one-half of your financial support for the past 180 days was provided by such a member.

Limitations on Security Interest / Prohibition on Obtaining Funds Electronically / Obtaining PINs: The lender cannot require you to provide more than one check as security for any payday loan. The check must be dated as of the date your loan is due. The lender cannot require you to provide any security for your payday loan other than a check payable to the lender. The lender is also prohibited from electronically debiting your deposit account or obtaining any of your funds by electronic means. The lender also cannot obtain any agreement from you that gives the lender or a third party the authority to prepare a check that is drawn upon your deposit account. Additionally, the lender is prohibited from obtaining or receiving a personal identification number (PIN) for a credit card, prepaid card, debit card, or any other type of card in connection with your loan.

One Loan at a Time / $500 Maximum: The lender cannot have more than one loan outstanding to you at any one time. If you currently have an outstanding payday loan from any lender, you cannot obtain another payday loan. The maximum loan amount is $500.

Minimum Loan Term: Under Virginia law, your loan term must be at least twice as long as your pay cycle. For example, if you are paid on a weekly basis, your minimum loan term would be 14 days.

Fees, Charges, and Interest: The lender is permitted to charge you (i) interest at a simple annual rate of 36%, (ii) a loan fee not exceeding 20% of the amount of money advanced to you (i.e., $20 per $100 advanced), and (iii) a verification fee not exceeding $5.00. For example, if the lender advances you $300 for 31 days, the lender may charge you up to $9.30 interest, a loan fee of $60, and a verification fee of $5.00 for a total of $74.30. If the lender advances you $300 for 62 days, the lender may charge you up to $18.60 interest, a loan fee of $60, and a verification fee of $5.00 for a total of $83.60. Other than the specific fees and costs discussed in the section of this pamphlet entitled "Failure to Repay" (see below), no additional amounts may be directly or indirectly charged, contracted for, collected, received, or recovered by the lender.

You will receive your loan proceeds in the form of either cash or a check from the lender. The lender cannot charge you a fee for cashing their check. Similarly, a check casher affiliated with the lender cannot charge you a fee for cashing the lender's check.

Written Agreement: The lender must provide you with a written loan agreement, which must be signed by both you and an authorized representative of the lender. The loan agreement is a binding, legal document that requires you to repay the loan. Make sure you read the entire loan agreement carefully before signing and dating it. The lender must provide you with a duplicate original of the loan agreement at the time of your loan transaction. If any provision of your loan agreement violates the Payday Loan Act (§ 6.1-444 et seq. Chapter 18 (§ 6.2-1800 et seq.) of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia) Virginia, the provision will not be enforceable against you.

Extended Payment Plans: Under Virginia law eligible borrowers have the option of repaying a payday loan by means of an extended payment plan. You may only obtain an extended payment plan once in any rolling 12-month period (even if you obtain loans from different lenders or locations). You may obtain an extended payment plan at any time on or after the date that you received your loan through the date that your loan is due to be repaid.

Under an extended payment plan, you are permitted to repay the amount you owe in at least four equal installments spread out evenly over a term of at least 60 days. You will not be charged any additional interest or fees in connection with an extended payment plan, and interest will not accrue during the term of an extended payment plan.

If you obtain an extended payment plan, you will not be able to get another payday loan from any lender for a period of 90 days after you fully repay or satisfy the extended payment plan.

Five Payday Loans within 180 Days: If you are obtaining a fifth payday loan within a rolling 180-day period, you have the option to (i) repay the fifth loan through an extended payment plan, unless you previously obtained an extended payment plan within the preceding 12 months, or (ii) obtain the loan in the form of an extended term loan.

You do not have to choose either one of these options. However, even if you do not obtain an extended payment plan or extended term loan, you will not be able to obtain another payday loan from any lender for a period of 45 days after you fully repay or satisfy your fifth payday loan.

Extended payment plans are discussed above. If you are eligible to repay your fifth payday loan by means of an extended payment plan and choose to do so, you will not be able to obtain another payday loan from any lender for a period of 90 days after you fully repay or satisfy the extended payment plan.

An extended term loan is a payday loan under which you are permitted to repay the amount you owe in four equal installments spread out evenly over a term of 60 days. You may obtain an extended term loan even if you previously obtained another extended term loan or an extended payment plan. If you want an extended term loan, you must choose this option on the date you obtain the payday loan. If you obtain an extended term loan, you will not be able to get another payday loan from any lender for a period of 90 days after you fully repay or satisfy the extended term loan or 150 days after you obtain the extended term loan (whichever is longer).

Other Businesses: A lender is prohibited by statute from engaging in other businesses, besides check cashing, unless permitted by order of the State Corporation Commission. A lender is also prohibited by statute from selling you any type of insurance coverage.

Loans for Other Products & Services: You are prohibited from using any of the money from your payday loan to purchase any other product or service sold at the lender's business location.

Right to Cancel: You have the right to cancel your loan at any time prior to the close of business on the next day the lender is open following the date your loan is made by paying the lender the amount advanced to you in cash, certified check, cashier's check, money order or, if the lender is equipped to handle such payments, by using a credit card, prepaid card, or debit card.

Partial Payments and Prepayments: You have the right to make partial payments (in increments of not less than $5.00) on your payday loan at any time prior to its specified due date without penalty. If you make a partial payment, the total interest and loan fee you pay will be reduced (unless you have an extended payment plan or extended term loan -- see "Payments on Extended Payment Plans and Extended Term Loans" below). You have the right to receive signed, dated receipts for each payment made along with a statement of the balance remaining on your payday loan. You also have the right to prepay your loan in full before its specified due date without penalty by paying the lender in cash, certified check, cashier's check, money order or, if the lender is equipped to handle such payments, by use of a credit card, prepaid card, or debit card, the amount of money advanced to you as well as any accrued and unpaid interest and fees.

Payments on Extended Payment Plans and Extended Term Loans: You have the right to prepay an extended payment plan or extended term loan without penalty. However, unless it results in the prepayment in full of an extended payment plan or extended term loan, a partial payment, excess payment, installment payment, or other payment you give to the lender in advance of the date the funds are due does not result in either a change to your payment schedule or a pro-rata adjustment of the total interest, if any, or loan fee that you will be required to pay. Payments you make on an extended payment plan or extended term loan are first applied to any past due installment and then to your next regularly scheduled installment. The lender must give you receipts, signed and dated by the lender, for all payments you make on an extended payment plan or extended term loan. When you make a payment on an extended payment plan or extended term loan, you have the option to give the lender a replacement security check for the remaining amount you owe. [ At your request, the lender may print a replacement security check on your behalf when you are in the lender's office and make a payment on an extended payment plan or extended term loan. ]

Lender to Return Original Loan Agreement: Upon repayment of your loan in full, the lender must mark your original loan agreement with the word "paid" or "canceled" and return it to you. If you obtained an extended payment plan, the lender is also required to mark your original extended payment plan document with the word "paid" or "canceled" and return it to you.

Lender to Return Security Check: If you cancel your loan (see "Right to Cancel" above) or repay it in full with cash or by certified check, cashier's check, money order or, if the lender is equipped to handle such payments, by using a credit card, prepaid card, or debit card, the lender must immediately return the check you gave as security for the loan.

No Rollovers, Extensions, Etc.: The lender cannot refinance, renew, extend, or rollover your payday loan.

Failure to Repay: Pay back your loan! Know when your payment is due and be sure to repay your loan on time and in full. You are responsible for having sufficient funds in your checking account on the due date of your loan so that your check does not bounce if the lender deposits it in his account. If you do not repay your loan by the specified due date, the lender may begin accruing interest on the principal amount of your loan at a maximum rate of 6.0% per year.

In collecting or attempting to collect a payday loan, the lender is required to comply with the restrictions and prohibitions applicable to debt collectors contained in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 USC § 1692 et seq., regarding harassment or abuse, false or misleading misrepresentations, and unfair practices in collections. The lender is also prohibited from threatening or beginning criminal proceedings against you if a check you provide to the lender bounces. If a lender knowingly violates this prohibition, the lender is required to pay you a civil monetary penalty equal to three times the amount of the dishonored check.

If you cannot or do not repay the loan: (i) the lender is permitted to recover from you any fee charged to the lender (maximum of $25) as a result of your check being returned due to your account being closed by you or containing insufficient funds, or if you stopped payment on your check; and (ii) if the lender seeks and obtains judgment against you as a result of your returned check, the lender may obtain court costs and reasonable attorney's fees (total may not exceed $250) if such costs and fees are awarded by the court.

The lender cannot file or initiate a legal proceeding against you until 60 days after the date that you default on a payday loan, including a default under an extended payment plan or extended term loan. During this 60-day period the lender may voluntarily enter into a repayment arrangement with you.

Legal Action Against Lender: You have the right to bring a civil action against the lender if you suffer a loss as a result of the lender violating any provision of the Payday Loan Act Chapter 18 (§ 6.2-1800 et seq.) of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia. If you are successful in your civil action, you have the right to be reimbursed for reasonable attorney's fees, expert witness fees, and court costs you have incurred in connection with your civil action. Losses suffered as the result of the lender's violation of the Payday Loan Act Chapter 18 of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia may also be pursued under the Virginia Consumer Protection Act (§ 59.1-196 et seq. of the Code of Virginia), which in some cases permits consumers to recover actual and punitive damages.

EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER 10 (2014)

In Furtherance of the Virginia Indian Commemorative Commission

Importance of the Commission

Native Americans have lived in the land now known as Virginia for thousands of years, their history having been and continuing to be documented. The historical record confirms that Virginia Indians provided aid and comfort to the British colonists in 1607 and were instrumental in the establishment of the first permanent English-speaking settlement in North America at Jamestown.

The legacy of the indigenous peoples of the Commonwealth has been recorded in the names of many Virginia locations and landmarks, such as the cities of Chesapeake and Roanoke, the Counties of Accomack, Appomattox, and Powhatan, and the Chickahominy, Mattaponi, Pamunkey, Potomac, and Rappahannock Rivers, as well as many other sites. Despite hardships brought about by the loss of lands, languages, and civil rights, American Indians in Virginia have persisted and continue to contribute to the Commonwealth through agriculture, land stewardship, teaching, military and civil service, the arts, and other avenues of productive citizenship.

Continuation of the Virginia Indian Commemorative Commission

In recognition that the courage, persistence, determination, and cultural values of Virginia's Indians have significantly enhanced and contributed to society, the General Assembly approved House Joint Resolution 680 (2009), requesting the creation of a commission to recommend an appropriate monument in Capitol Square to commemorate the life, achievements, and legacy of American Indians in the Commonwealth. On October 22, 2009, Governor Tim Kaine issued Executive Order 100 that established the Virginia Indian Commemorative Commission. Since then, the Commission has met regularly and developed a plan for execution of the monument, but there is more work to be done. Accordingly, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Governor under Article V of the Constitution of Virginia and under the laws of the Commonwealth, including but not limited to §§ 2.2-134 and 2.2-135 of the Code of Virginia, and subject to my continuing and ultimate authority and responsibility to direct such matters, I hereby issue this Executive Order to continue the work of the Virginia Indian Commemorative Commission.

Composition of the Commission

The current Virginia Indian Commemorative Commission shall consist of the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, three members of the House of Delegates appointed by the Speaker of the House of Delegates in accordance with the principles of proportional representation contained in the Rules of the House of Delegates, the Clerk of the House of Delegates, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Rules, two members of the Senate appointed by the Senate Committee on Rules, the Clerk of the Senate, the Executive Director of the Capitol Square Preservation Council, three nonlegislative citizen members who shall be representatives of Virginia Indians to be appointed by the Governor, and the Executive Director of the Virginia Capitol Foundation who shall serve ex officio with nonvoting privileges. Additional members may be appointed at the Governor's discretion. The Chairman and the Vice Chairman shall be appointed by the Governor.

Members of the Commission shall serve without compensation, but they may receive reimbursement for authorized expenses incurred in the discharge of their official duties.

Charge for the Commission

The Commission shall take all necessary actions to proceed to contract with an identified artist, implement the selected design and coordinate the construction, pursuant to applicable state construction policies, of an appropriate monument on Capitol Square to commemorate the life, achievements, and legacy of American Indians in the Commonwealth. The Commission shall continue to seek private funding for the operation and support of the Commission and the erection of an appropriate monument. However, the costs of implementation of the Commission, its work, and the reimbursement of members, estimated to be $5,000, shall be borne by the Commission from such private funds as it may acquire to cover the costs of its operation and work. The Commission may establish an organization with 501(c)(3) status for fundraising purposes. The Commission is vested with all the powers to carry out the intent of the General Assembly under House Joint Resolution 680 (2009). All agencies of the Commonwealth shall provide assistance to the Commission, upon request. An estimated 200 hours of staff time will be required to support the work of the Commission.

The Commission shall report annually the status of its work, including any findings and recommendations, to the General Assembly, by December 1st each year.

Effective Date of the Executive Order

This Executive Order replaces Executive Order 59 (2013) issued on February 5, 2013, by Governor Robert F. McDonnell. This Executive Order shall become effective upon its signing, and shall remain in effect for one year from its signing, unless amended or rescinded by further executive order.

Given under my hand and under the Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia this 25th day of March, 2014.

EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER 11 (2014)

Continuing the Commission on Military Installations and Defense Activities

Importance of the Commission

The Commonwealth of Virginia is proud of its well-documented, distinguished history and unparalleled record of exceptional support for our military services, service members and their families, and the businesses that support our national security. The bond between the Commonwealth and our military services is and will continue to be strong, mutually beneficial, and inextricably linked. While the military recruits soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, it retains families. Virginia is and will remain the preeminent state for military installations and defense activities – and for military personnel, their families, and veterans.

Moreover, Virginia affords a multitude of extraordinary strategic advantages that are widely recognized, such as its designation as the best state for business, economic vibrancy, top-ranked institutions of higher education and medicine, renowned centers of innovative research and development, a diverse and highly educated workforce, international trade and investment, an expansive port, and a solid transportation infrastructure. Centrally located in the mid-Atlantic region, with close proximity to our nation's capital and possessing an extraordinary combination of training sites and ranges with immediate access to unrestricted air-space and maritime operating areas, Virginia also offers high quality and high intensity training areas uniquely capable of preparing both conventional and special operations forces to safeguard our vital interests anywhere in the world. The Commonwealth is resolute in its dedication to ensuring the highest level of steadfast commitment to our military installations, defense activities, and surrounding communities.

In recent years, national security and defense spending have begun a decline. However, Virginia's military and government civilian personnel, defense contractors and suppliers, supporting businesses and local communities are working together and moving forward in this new fiscal climate. The Commonwealth must vigilantly and proactively work to retain and strengthen military and federal facilities as well as continue to seek new opportunities for collaborative partnerships, innovative initiatives, and economic development and diversification for related operations and facilities that can be located in Virginia.

Continuing the Commission on Military Installations and Defense Activities

On March 1, 2013, the Commission on Military Installations and Defense Activities was established by executive order. The Commission was tasked to identify, review, and recommend actions that the Commonwealth could take in support of our military and defense installations and activities, military services, and surrounding localities. There is more work to be done by the Commission, and there are additional installations and activities requiring visitation by the Commission and retained experts.

Accordingly, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Governor under Article V of the Constitution of Virginia and under the laws of the Commonwealth, including but not limited to §§ 2.2-134 and 2.2-135 of the Code of Virginia, and subject to my continuing and ultimate authority and responsibility to act in such matters, I hereby continue the Commission on Military Installations and Defense Activities.

Composition of the Commission

The continued Commission will consist of the Secretaries of Veterans and Defense Affairs, Finance, Commerce and Trade, Technology, and Transportation, the co-chairs of the General Assembly Military and Veteran Caucus, and four (4) citizen members whose background shall include service as a General or Flag Officer in one of the military services, to be appointed by the Governor and serve at his pleasure. The Governor shall designate a Chairman from among the appointed members. The Governor may appoint additional persons to the Commission at his discretion.

Responsibilities of the Commission

The Commission's responsibilities shall include the following:

1. Continue the process of assessing the Commonwealth's military and defense installations and activities and make recommendations for near- and long-term actions that the Commonwealth can take to improve the support for our nation's military services;

2. Obtain data, information, and studies from subject matter experts in order to develop recommendations and plans for improving relationships with federal military and defense installations and activities located in the Commonwealth;

3. Develop and recommend strategies to improve the local support for federal military and defense installations and activities located in Virginia;

4. Develop and recommend strategies designed to identify the economic impact of federal military and defense installations and activities on the localities hosting or surrounding these installations and activities, as well as on the Commonwealth as a whole;

5. Develop and recommend strategies that support and foster collaboration among local and regional entities in identifying appropriate opportunities for the protection of existing federal facilities and the placement of additional federal facilities in the Commonwealth;

6. Determine and recommend the best and most efficient manner to promote business, technology, transportation, education, economic development, and other efforts to support, attract, and retain existing military installations, commands and defense activities in the Commonwealth;

7. Identify all federal military and defense installation and facility construction plans in the Commonwealth, and facilitate ways to assist in those plans;

8. Support the Commonwealth's role in research and development related to or arising out of military missions, contracting, and defense activities;

9. Identify and recommend strategies for expanding collaborative activities related to strategic economic interests of the Commonwealth including, but not limited to, aerospace, cyber-security, modeling and simulation, energy, and unmanned systems;

10. Recommend improvements and resources for service members, military families and their children, veterans, and businesses that bring military and defense-related jobs to the Commonwealth;

11. Cultivate strategies to facilitate the transition from military service to civilian life, and identify barriers to and opportunities for credentialing, licensing and employment for military veterans throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia; and

12. Advance all other prospective opportunities, proactively fostering outreach and good will, in order for the Commonwealth of Virginia to remain the most military-friendly state in the nation.

Commission Staffing and Funding

Necessary staff support for the Commission's work during its continued existence shall be furnished by the Office of the Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs, and such other agencies and offices as designated by the Governor. An estimated 200 hours of staff time will be required to support the work of the Commission.

Necessary funding to support the Commission and its staff shall be provided from private contributions and state funds appropriated for the same purposes as the Commission, as authorized by § 2.2-135 of the Code of Virginia, as well as any other private sources of funding that may be identified. Estimated direct costs for this Commission are $5,000.

Commission members shall serve without compensation and shall receive reimbursement for authorized expenses incurred in the discharge of their official duties.

The Commission shall meet upon the call of the chairman.

Proposed State Implementation Plan Revision - Definition of Volatile Organic Compound

Notice of action: The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is announcing an opportunity for public comment on a proposed revision to the Commonwealth of Virginia State Implementation Plan (SIP). The SIP is a plan developed by the Commonwealth in order to fulfill its responsibilities under the federal Clean Air Act to attain and maintain the ambient air quality standards promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Act. The Commonwealth intends to submit the regulation to the EPA as a revision to the SIP in accordance with the requirements of § 110(a) of the Act.

Regulations affected: The regulation of the board affected by this action is 9VAC5-10, General Definitions (Revision D13).

Purpose of notice: DEQ is seeking comment on the issue of whether the regulation amendments should be submitted as a revision to the SIP.

Public comment period: April 21, 2014, to May 21, 2014.

Public hearing: A public hearing may be conducted if a request is made in writing to the contact listed below. In order to be considered, the request must include the full name, address, and telephone number of the person requesting the hearing and be received by DEQ by the last day of the comment period. Notice of the date, time, and location of any requested public hearing will be announced in a separate notice, and another 30-day comment period will be conducted.

Public comment stage: Because the regulation amendments have been adopted by the board in accordance with the Administrative Process Act and have subsequently become effective, DEQ is accepting comment only on the issue cited above under "purpose of notice" and not on the content of the regulation amendments.

Description of proposal: The proposed revision will consist of amendments to an existing regulation concerning the definition of volatile organic compound (VOC). On February 12, 2013 (78 FR 9823), EPA revised the definition of VOC in 40 CFR 51.100 to exclude HCF2OCF2H (HFE-134); HCF2OCF2OCF2H (HFE-236cal2); HCF2OCF2CF2OCF2H (HFE-338pcc13); and HCF2OCF2OCF2CF2OCF2H (H-Galden 1040x or H-Galden ZT 130 (or 150 or 180)) from the definition of VOC. These exclusions are accomplished by adding the substances to a list of substances not considered to be a VOC. Additionally, EPA corrected the citation for 1,1,1,2,2,3,4,5,5,5-decafluoro-3-methoxy-4-trifluoromethyl-pentane (HFE-7300). The state definition has been revised accordingly.

Federal information: This notice is being given to satisfy the public participation requirements of federal regulations (40 CFR 51.102) and not any provision of state law. The proposal will be submitted as a revision to the Commonwealth of Virginia SIP under § 110(a) of the federal Clean Air Act in accordance with 40 CFR 51.104. It is planned to submit all provisions of the proposal as a revision to the SIP.

How to comment: DEQ accepts written comments by email, fax, and postal mail. In order to be considered, comments must include the full name, address, and telephone number of the person commenting and be received by DEQ by the last day of the comment period. All materials received are part of the public record.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Total Maximum Daily Load Implementation Plan for the Buffalo (North and South Forks), Cedar, and Colliers Creek Watersheds in Rockbridge County

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks written and oral comments from interested persons on the development of a total maximum daily load (TMDL) implementation plan for the Buffalo (North and South Forks), Cedar, and Colliers Creek watersheds in Rockbridge County. These creeks were first listed as impaired on the Virginia's 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report due to violations of the state's water quality standard for bacteria in 2002 (Cedar Creek), 2004 (Buffalo Creek, mainstem), 2006 (Colliers Creek), 2010 (South Fork Buffalo Creek), and 2012 (North Fork Buffalo Creek). The creeks have remained on the 303(d) list for these impairments since then. In addition, Colliers Creek was listed as impaired due to water quality violations of the general aquatic life (benthic) standard in 2010.

The impaired segments of the North and South Forks of the Buffalo and Colliers Creek extend from the headwaters down to the confluence with the mainstem of Buffalo Creek, 7.28, 13.24, and 13.77 miles, respectively. The impaired segment of Buffalo Creek extends 15.51 miles downstream to its confluence with the Maury River.  The impaired segment of Cedar Creek extends 11.49 miles from the headwaters to its confluence with the James River.

Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and § 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia require DEQ to develop TMDLs for pollutants responsible for each impaired water contained in Virginia's 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report. In addition, § 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia requires the development of an implementation plan (IP) for approved TMDLs. The IP should provide measurable goals and the date of expected achievement of water quality objectives. The IP should also include the corrective actions needed and their associated costs, benefits, and environmental impacts. Bacteria TMDLs were completed by DEQ for all of the creeks, and a benthic TMDL addressing sediment was completed for Colliers Creek. The TMDLs were submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency for approval on January 2, 2014. The TMDL report is available on the DEQ website at www.deq.virginia.gov/Programs/Water/Water
QualityInformationTMDLs/TMDL/TMDLDevelopment/DraftTMDLReports.aspx
.

The first public meeting on the development of this TMDL implementation plan will be held on Thursday, May 8, 2014, at 7 p.m. at the Effinger Fire Hall, 2824 Collierstown Road, Lexington, VA.

The public comment period for the first public meeting will end on June 9, 2014. Written comments should include the name, address, and telephone number of the person submitting the comments and should be sent to Nesha McRae, Department of Environmental Quality, P.O. Box 3000, Harrisonburg, VA 22801, telephone (540) 574-7850, or email nesha.mcrae@deq.virginia.gov.
