MATTERS TO BE CONSIDERED: The Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation 
Board (CSB) will convene a public meeting on June 18, 2015, starting at 
9:30 a.m. at the CSB's headquarters, located at 2175 K St. NW., 4th 
Floor Conference Room, Washington, DC 20037. The meeting will focus on 
the Proposed Rule to amend 40 CFR 1600--Organization and Functions of 
the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board. This proposed rule 
(80 FR 27276 (May 13, 2015)), which was considered and approved during 
the CSB's May 6, 2015, public meeting, adds a requirement to the CSB's 
internal administrative rules for the Chairperson to add notation votes 
that have been calendared for public discussion to the agenda of a 
public meeting within 90 days of the calendared notation vote. The 
proposed rule also adds a requirement for the Chairperson, or in the 
absence of a Chairperson, a member designated by the Board, to schedule 
a minimum of four public meetings per year in Washington, DC. The CSB 
is accepting comments on the proposed rule until June 12, 2015. The 
agenda may also include Board discussion and vote(s) on motions related 
to Board governance when there is a vacancy in the Chairperson
