       Agriculture                                                                            The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is establishing a voluntary labeling program for biobased products under section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, as amended by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008. Under the voluntary labeling program, a biobased product, after being certified by USDA, can be marketed using the “USDA Certified Biobased Product” label. The presence of the label will mean that the product meets USDA standards for the amount of biobased content and that the manufacturer or vendor has provided relevant information on the product for the USDA BioPreferred Program Web site.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    2.8

The Committee locally administers the marketing order which regulates the handling of avocados grown in South Florida. The assessment rate will remain in effect indefinitely unless modified, suspended, or terminated.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   0.37
 Agricultural Marketing                                       This action is pursuant to the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (2002 Farm Bill) and the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill). The 2002 Farm Bill mandates that the Order be amended to implement an assessment on imported dairy products to fund promotion and research and to add importer representation, initially two members, to the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (Board).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             6.0

Specifically, the proposed rules contained herein impose requirements on futures commission merchants (“FCMs”) and derivatives clearing organizations (“DCOs”) regarding the treatment of cleared swaps customer contracts (and related collateral), and make conforming amendments to bankruptcy provisions applicable to commodity brokers under the Commodity Exchange Act (the “CEA”).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          136.0

          CFTC                                         The Commodity Futures Trading Commis s ion (“Commis s ion” or “CFTC”) is charged with propos ing rules to implement new s tatutory provis ions enacted by Title VII of the Dodd-Frank W all Street Reform and Cons umer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”). The Dodd-Frank Act, which amends the Commodity Exchange Act (“CEA” or “Act”), includes provis ions applicable to “a s wap in an agricultural commodity (as defined by the [CFTC]).” N either Congres s nor the CFTC has previous ly defined that term for purpos es of the CEA or CFTC regulations . On October 26, 2010, the Commis s ion reques ted comment on a propos ed definition. After reviewing the comments s ubmitted in res pons e to the propos ed definition, the Commis s ion has determined to is s ue thes e final rules in es s entially the s ame form as originally propos ed, s ubject to a minor revis ion to the commodity-bas ed index provis ion.




          CFTC                                                                                                                          The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC” or “Commission”) is adopting final rules pursuant to section 753 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”), to implement amended subsections (c)(1) and (c)(3) of section 6 of the Commodity Exchange Act (“CEA”). These rules broadly prohibit fraud and manipulation in connection with any swap, or contract of sale of any commodity in interstate commerce, or contract for future delivery on or subject to the rules of any registered entity.




 Children and Families                 This proposed rule would amend Head Start program regulations to codify statutory eligibility requirements for Head Start and Early Head Start program enrollment and strengthen procedures to determine, verify, certify, and maintain records regarding eligibility for Head Start and Early Head Start program enrollment.




          CMS                                   The program will apply to payments for discharges occurring on or after October 1, 2012, in accordance with section 1886(o) of the Social Security Act (as added by section 3001(a) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Pub. L. 111-148), enacted on March 23, 2010, as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-152), enacted on March 30, 2010 (collectively known as the Affordable Care Act)).




          CMS                                                                                                                                                                    This proposed rule would update the prospective payment rates for Medicare inpatient hospital services provided by inpatient psychiatric facilities (IPFs) for discharges occurring during the rate year beginning July 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012. The proposed rule would also change the IPF prospective payment system (PPS) payment rate update period to a rate year (RY) that coincides with a fiscal year (FY). In addition, the rule proposes policy changes affecting the IPF PPS teaching adjustment.




          CMS                                               This final rule with comment period will implement provisions of the ACA that establish: Procedures under which screening is conducted for providers of medical or other services and suppliers in the Medicare program, providers in the Medicaid program, and providers in the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP); an application fee imposed on institutional providers and suppliers; temporary moratoria that may be imposed if necessary to prevent or combat fraud, waste, and abuse under the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and CHIP; guidance for States regarding termination of providers from Medicaid and CHIP if terminated by Medicare or another Medicaid State plan or CHIP                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            135.0
          CMS                   This proposed rule would set forth new requirements for Medicare certified providers and suppliers. This proposed rule would require that the Medicare certified providers and suppliers make available to their Medicare beneficiaries information about their right to file a written complaint with the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) in the State where healthcare services are being or were provided about the quality of care they are receiving or have received.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             68.7
          CMS                  This final rule describes the implementation of funding provisions under Title XXI of the Social Security Act (the Act), for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), as amended by the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA), by the Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP Extension Act of 2007 (MMSEA), by other related CHIP legislation, and most recently by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (the Affordable Care Act).




          CMS                              This interim final rule amends the requirements that a long-term care (LTC) facility must meet in order to qualify to participate as a skilled nursing facility (SNF) in the Medicare program, or a nursing facility (NF) in the Medicaid program. These requirements implement section 6113 of the Affordable Care Act to ensure that, among other things, in the case of a LTC facility closure, individuals serving as administrators of a SNF or NF provide written notification of the impending closure and a plan for the relocation of residents at least 60 days prior to the impending closure or, if the Secretary terminates the facility's participation in Medicare or Medicaid, not later than the date the Secretary determines appropriate.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        5.5

This proposed rule is intended to increase the number of patients receiving annual vaccination against seasonal influenza and to decrease the morbidity and mortality rates from influenza. This proposed rule would also require certain providers and suppliers to develop policies and procedures that would allow them to offer vaccinations for pandemic influenza, in case of a future pandemic influenza event for which a vaccine may be developed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              3.8

The final rule will implement a new credentialing and privileging process for physicians and practitioners providing telemedicine services. Currently, a hospital or CAH receiving telemedicine services must go through a burdensome credentialing and privileging process for each physician and practitioner who will be providing telemedicine services to its patients.

In this context, it examines recent changes in provider behavior relating to the implementation of the Resource Utilization Groups, version 4 (RUG-IV) case-mix classification system and considers a possible recalibration of the case-mix indexes so that they more accurately reflect parity in expenditures between RUG-IV and the previous case-mix classification system. It also includes a discussion of a Non-Therapy Ancillary component and outlier research currently under development within CMS.

It will also authorize States to identify other provider-preventable conditions for which Medicaid payment will be prohibited.




          CMS                         This rule proposes to implement new statutory requirements regarding the release and use of standardized extracts of Medicare claims data to measure the performance of providers and suppliers in ways that protect patient privacy. This rule explains how entities can become qualified by CMS to receive standardized extracts of claims data under Medicare Parts A, B, and D for the purpose of evaluation of the performance of providers of services and suppliers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      87.795

           DOJ                            The Department of Justice (Department) has under review national standards for combating sexual abuse in confinement settings that were prepared by the National Prison Rape Elimination Commission (Commission) pursuant to the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) and recommended by the Commission to the Attorney General. On March 10, 2010, the Department published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to solicit public input on the Commission's proposed national standards and to receive information useful to the Department in publishing a final rule adopting national standards for the detection, prevention, reduction, and punishment of prison rape, as mandated by PREA.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         4,195.0

These regulations provide for sampling plans used in determining compliance with existing standards, manufacturer submission of compliance statements and certification reports to DOE, maintenance of compliance records by manufacturers, and the availability of enforcement actions for improper certification or noncompliance with an applicable standard.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        4.3
         Energy                                       This notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposes to update the incorporation by reference of industry test procedures to the most current published versions. The current DOE test procedure applies to automatic commercial ice makers that produce cube type ice. This NOPR proposes to expand coverage of the test procedure to all batch type and continuous type ice makers with capacities between 50 and 4,000 pounds of ice per 24 hours.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              0.476

In this N OPR, DOE propos es amended energy cons ervation s tandards for thos e ballas ts currently s ubject to s tandards , and new s tandards for certain ballas ts not currently covered by s tandards . This N OPR als o announces a public meeting to receive comment on thes e propos ed s tandards and as s ociated analys es and res ults .




         Energy                Specifically, DOE is tentatively proposing an 18-month extension to the compliance date for the certification provisions for commercial refrigeration equipment; commercial heating, ventilating, air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment; commercial water heating equipment; walk-in coolers; walk-in freezers; and automatic commercial ice makers. DOE is also considering extending the compliance date for the certification provisions for other commercial equipment based on comments.




         Energy            In this direct final rule, DOE adopts amended energy conservation standards for residential clothes dryers and room air conditioners. A notice of proposed rulemaking that proposes identical energy efficiency standards is published elsewhere in today's Federal Register. If DOE receives adverse comment and determines that such comment may provide a reasonable basis for withdrawing the direct final rule, this final rule will be withdrawn and DOE will proceed with the proposed rule.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          146

           EPA                               EPA is promulgating a final rule under section 4(a)(1)(B) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to require manufacturers, importers, and processors of certain high production volume (HPV) chemical substances to conduct testing to obtain screening level data for health and environmental effects and chemical fate.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             4.19
           EPA                             This proposed rule would codify the Agency's current interpretation of FIFRA, and provides interested parties the opportunity to comment about how it is adding prion to the list of pests in the regulatory definition of pest. This amendment, together with the formal declaration that a prion is a pest, will eliminate any confusion about the status of prion-related products under FIFRA.




           EPA                                                                    EPA proposes to amend the portions of its rules for the protection of human subjects of research applying to third parties who conduct or support research with pesticides involving intentional exposure of human subjects and to persons who submit the results of human research with pesticides to EPA. The proposed amendments would broaden the applicability of the rules to cover human testing with pesticides submitted to EPA under any regulatory statute it administers. They would also disallow participation in third-party pesticide studies by subjects who cannot consent for themselves.

This action meets the SDWA requirement by proposing the design for the third UCMR cycle (i.e., UCMR 3). EPA is proposing six EPA-developed analytical methods, and four equivalent consensus organization-developed methods to monitor for 28 new UCMR chemical contaminants.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            14.9

           EPA                          This action is a supplement to the June 11, 2008, proposal. Specifically, this action proposes two options for amending the NESHAP for mercury emissions from mercury cell chlor-alkali plants. The first option would require the elimination of mercury emissions and thus encourage the conversion to non-mercury technology. The second option would require the measures proposed in 2008. These measures, which included significant improvements in the work practices to reduce fugitive emissions from the cell room, would result in near-zero levels of mercury emissions while still allowing the mercury cell facilities to continue to operate. We are specifically requesting comment on which of these options is more appropriate....                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           30

This deadline extension will, in the first year of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program, allow time for needed refinement of the electronic data reporting system, stakeholder testing of the reporting system and feedback to EPA, and reporter access to the reporting system in advance of the reporting deadline.




EPA         This final rule sets limits for nine pollutants under section 129 of the Clean Air Act: Cadmium, carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, lead, mercury, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans, and sulfur dioxide.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  671.7
EPA                                                      The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) is publishing a final rule that identifies which non-hazardous secondary materials, when used as fuels or ingredients in combustion units, are “solid wastes” under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). This RCRA solid waste definition will determine whether a combustion unit is required to meet the emissions standards for solid waste incineration units issued under section 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) or the emissions standards for commercial, industrial, and institutional boilers issued under section 112 of the CAA. In this action, EPA is also finalizing a definition of traditional fuels.




EPA                    The final emission standards for control of mercury and polycyclic organic matter emissions from coal-fired area source boilers are based on the maximum achievable control technology. The final emission standards for control of hazardous air pollutants emissions from biomass-fired and oil-fired area source boilers are based on EPA's determination as to what constitutes the generally available control technology or management practices.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                1,257.0
EPA                                EPA is, in this action, establishing emission standards that will require industrial/commercial/institutional boilers and process heaters located at major sources to meet hazardous air pollutants standards reflecting the application of the maximum achievable control technology. This rule protects air quality and promotes public health by reducing emissions of the hazardous air pollutants listed in section 112(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   1,995.9
EPA                                          This action promulgates EPA's final response to the 2001 voluntary remand of the December 1, 2000, new source performance standards and emission guidelines for commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units and the vacatur and remand of several definitions by the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals in 2007. In addition, this action includes the 5-year technology review of the new source performance standards and emission guidelines required under section 129 of the Clean Air Act. This action also promulgates other amendments that EPA believes are necessary to address air emissions from commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    324.6

EPA       EPA is taking final action to amend an October 15, 2008, final rulemaking on two State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions regarding the State of Alabama's rules for visible emissions from certain stationary sources. EPA has now determined upon reconsideration that Alabama's SIP revisions, dated September 11, 2003, and August 22, 2008, are not approvable pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) section 110(l).




EPA       Specifically, EPA is proposing to find that emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO 2) from the Portland Plant significantly contribute to nonattainment and interfere with maintenance of the 1-hour SO 2 national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) in New Jersey. This finding is proposed in response to a petition submitted by the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) on September 17, 2010.




EPA                          EPA is proposing to revise the manner by which the regulated community would apply the threshold planning quantities (TPQs) for those extremely hazardous substances (EHSs) that are non-reactive solid chemicals in solution form. Specifically, facilities with a solid EHS in solution would be subject to the Emergency Planning requirements if the amount of the solid chemical on-site, when multiplied by 0.2, equaled or exceeded the lower published TPQ, based on data that shows less potential for the solid chemical in solution to remain airborne in the event of an accidental release. Previously, EPA assumed that 100% of the chemical could become airborne in the event of an accidental release.




EPA                                                                       The proposed rule constitutes EPA's response to the remand of the Phase II existing facility rule and the remand of the existing facilities portion of the Phase III rule. In addition, EPA is also responding to the decision in Riverkeeper I and proposing to remove from the Phase I new facility rule the restoration-based compliance alternative and the associated monitoring and demonstration requirements. EPA expects this proposed regulation would minimize adverse environmental impacts, including substantially reducing the harmful effects of impingement and entrainment.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       5,351.0

For the Marine Tank Vessel Loading Operations NESHAP and the Group I Polymers and Resins NESHAP, EPA is finalizing emission standards to address certain emission sources not previously regulated under the NESHAP. EPA is also finalizing changes to the Pharmaceuticals Production NESHAP to correct an editorial error. For each of the four NESHAP, EPA is finalizing revisions to the regulatory provisions related to emissions during periods of startup, shutdown, and malfunction and promulgating provisions addressing electronic submission of emission test results.

EPA                                                          EPA is proposing uses that qualify for the 2011 critical use exemption and the amount of methyl bromide that may be produced, imported, or supplied from existing pre-phaseout inventory for those uses in 2011. EPA is taking action under the authority of the Clean Air Act to reflect a recent consensus decision taken by the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer at the Twenty-First Meeting of the Parties. EPA is seeking comment on the list of critical uses and on EPA's determination of the amounts of methyl bromide needed to satisfy those uses.




EPA                       The U nited States (U .S.) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or Agency) is propos ing national emis s ion s tandards for haz ardous air pollutants (N ESH AP) from coal- and oil-fired electric utility s team generating units (EG U s ) under Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) s ection 112(d) and propos ing revis ed new s ource performance s tandards (N SPS) for fos s il fuel-fired EG U s under CAA s ection 111(b). The propos ed N ESH AP would protect air quality and promote public health by reducing emis s ions of the haz ardous air pollutants (H AP) lis ted in CAA s ection 112(b). In addition, thes e propos ed amendments to the N SPS are in res pons e to a voluntary remand of a final rule.

Thes e actions are bas ed on EPA's determination that at the time EPA approved Texas 's PSD program, the program was flawed becaus e the s tate did not addres s how the program would apply to all pollutants that would become newly s ubject to regulation in the future, including non-N ational Ambient Air Quality Standard (N AAQS) pollutants , among them greenhous e gas es (G H G s ). The partial dis approval requires EPA to promulgate a FIP and EPA is doing s o to as s ure that G H G -emitting s ources in Texas are able to proceed with plans to cons truct or expand.




EPA          EPA is proposing a significant new use rule (SNUR) under section 5(a)(2) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for elemental mercury for use in barometers, manometers, and hygrometers/psychrometers.

The FIP includes two N ew Source Review (N SR) regulations for the protection of air res ources in Indian country. The firs t rule applies to new and modified minor s tationary s ources (minor s ources ) and to minor modifications at exis ting major s tationary s ources (major s ources ) throughout Indian country. The s econd rule (nonattainment major N SR rule) applies to new and modified major s ources in areas of Indian country that are des ignated as not attaining the N ational Ambient Air Quality Standards (N AAQS). Thes e rules will be implemented by EPA or a delegate Tribal agency as s is ting EPA with adminis tration of the rules , until replaced by an EPA-approved implementation plan.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     4.5

FAA              That NPRM proposed replacing the power control relays for the fuel boost pumps and override pumps with new relays having a ground fault interrupt (GFI) feature. That NPRM was prompted by results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This action revises that NPRM for all airplanes by proposing to require an electrical bonding resistance measurement for certain GFI relays to verify that certain bonding requirements are met.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    9.1

FAA        It has been reported during operational checks that some failures of the Escape Slide * * * installed on the forward passenger and service door have occurred which prevented the door from opening.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 0.24
FAA         In January 2009 a Trent 895 powered Boeing 777-200 aircraft experienced release of a low pressure (LP) compressor blade which failed due to fatigue cracking in the root section of the blade. The released blade (undercut root standard) had received a part life processing to apply a compression layer to the blade root (Service Bulletin SB 72-D672—Introduction of Laser Shock Peening (LSP)) and also a part life upgrade to the retention feature lubrication system.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    0.112
FAA                      This proposed AD would require additional inspections for certain airplanes. This proposed AD results from a report that a power feeder wire bundle chafed against the number six auxiliary slat track, causing electrical wires in the bundle to arc, which damaged both the auxiliary slat track and power feeder wires.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   0.39

FAA                             This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of all thrust reverser (T/R) structure and sealant for degradation, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD results from reports of thrust reverser events related to thermal damage of the thrust reverser inner wall.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                0.335
FAA                              This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for hydraulic fluid contamination of the interior of the strut disconnect assembly; repetitive inspections for discrepancies of the interior of the strut disconnect assembly, if necessary; repetitive inspections of the exterior of the strut disconnect assembly for cracks, if necessary; and corrective action if necessary.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             6.7
FAA                            This final rule requires all certificate holders conducting operations under part 135 to include in their training programs crew resource management training for crewmembers, including pilots and flight attendants. This final rule is needed to ensure that crewmembers in part 135 operations receive training in the use of crew resource management principles, as appropriate for their operation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             12.7
FAA                      This proposed AD would result in all airplanes having new relays with a ground fault interrupter (GFI) feature. This proposed AD would require, depending on airplane configuration, doing certain wiring changes, replacing the fuel pump power control relays for the main, center and auxiliary tanks, as applicable, with new relays having a GFI feature, performing certain bonding resistance measurements, and modifying relay module assemblies.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    11.6
FAA                     There have been two reported cases of failure of the MLG [main landing gear] piston axle, P/N [part number] 49203-3 or 49203-5, resulting from fretting between the inboard axle sleeve and axle thrust face, damage to the protective coating and consequent stress corrosion. In both cases, the MLG did not collapse.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      0.71
FAA        This AD requires inspections for scribe lines in the fuselage skin at skin lap joints and butt joints, the skin at certain external approved repairs, the skin around external features such as antennas, and the skin at decals and fairings; and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by reports of scribe lines found at skin lap joints and butt joints, around external repairs and antennas, and at locations where external decals had been cut.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         6.36
FAA           This proposed AD would require an inspection of the orientation of both sides of the coil cord connector keyways of the number 2 windows on the flight deck, re-clocking the connector keyways to 12 o'clock if necessary; and replacing the coil cord assemblies on both number 2 windows on the flight deck. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of arcing and smoke at the number 2 window in the flight deck.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  1.45
FAA                                                                                   We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Pratt & Whitney (PW) JT8D-1, -1A, -1B, -7, -7A, -7B, -9, -9A, -11, -15, -15A, -17, -17A, -17R, and -17AR series turbofan engines. That AD currently requires revisions to the engine manufacturer's time limits section (TLS) to include enhanced inspection of selected critical life-limited parts at each piece-part opportunity. This AD modifies the TLS of the manufacturer's engine manual and an air carrier's approved continuous airworthiness maintenance program to incorporate additional inspection requirements and reduce the model applicability.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              1.2
FAA             It has been found that moisture may accumulate and freeze, under certain conditions, in the gap between the AOA vane base assembly and the stationary ring of the sensor's body. If freezing occurs both AOA sensors may get stuck and the Stall Warning Protection System (SWPS) will be no longer effective without alerting. This may result in inadvertent aerodynamic stall and loss of controllability of the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        0.194
FAA    Airbus, in the frame of the Extended Service Goal (ESG) exercise, has demonstrated by post-certification analysis that, among the types of yokes in service, one component on the CF6-80C2 forward engine mounts (skinny cast yoke) does not meet the Design Service Goal (DSG) requirements.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 0.373
FAA    This action would establish minimum standards for training of personnel who access the airport non-movement area (ramp and apron) to help prevent accidents and incidents in that area. A certificate holder would be required to conduct pavement surface evaluations to ensure reliability of runway surfaces in wet weather conditions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     32.3

FAA               This new AD retains the inspection requirements of AD 2009-09-09, adds airplanes to the Applicability section, and adds a terminating action for the repetitive inspection requirements. This AD resulted from the manufacturer developing a modification that terminates the repetitive inspections and from the manufacture adding airplane serial numbers into the Applicability section.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        0.69
FAA                                       For a certain other airplane, this AD requires activating the cabin altitude warning and takeoff configuration warning lights. For all airplanes, this AD also requires revising the airplane flight manual to remove certain requirements included by previous AD actions, requires new pressure altitude limitations for certain airplanes, and advises the flightcrew of the following changes: revised emergency procedures to use when a cabin altitude warning or rapid depressurization occurs, and revised cabin pressurization procedures for normal operations. This AD was prompted by a design change in the cabin altitude warning system that would address the identified unsafe condition.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  3.2
FAA      A recent Wide spread Fatigue Damage (WFD) calculation on A300-600 aeroplanes has shown that a reinforcement of the upper fuselage circumferential joint at FR (frame) 58 is necessary to enable the aeroplane to reach the Extended Service Goal (ESG).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      4.3
FAA         During improvement of the protection of fuel pump wiring against short-circuit by accomplishment of Airbus Service Bulletin (SB) A300-24-6094, a study led by the manufacturer concluded that the harness, installed through the wing panel needed to be protected to prevent possible damage in case of chafing which could potentially lead to short-circuit [and intermittent function or loss of the inner tank fuel pump.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           0.164
FAA    Bombardier Aerospace has completed a system safety review of the aeroplanes fuel system against fuel tank safety standards introduced in Chapter 525 of the Airworthiness Manual through Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) 2002-043 [which corresponds with the FAA's Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 88]. The identified non-compliances were then assessed using Transport Canada Policy Letter No. 525-001, to determine if mandatory corrective action is required.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            5.5
FAA                                                                                              We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model 767 airplanes. This AD requires doing a detailed inspection for correct main track downstop assembly, thread protrusion, and damaged and missing parts of the main track downstop assemblies of the outboard slats, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also requires doing a detailed inspection for foreign objects, debris and damage to the wall of the track housing of the outboard slats, and corrective actions if necessary.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       0.245
FAA                                                                                       We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Pratt & Whitney (PW) JT8D-209, -217, -217A, -217C, and -219 turbofan engines. That AD currently requires revisions to the engine manufacturer's time limits section (TLS) to include enhanced inspection of selected critical life-limited parts at each piece-part opportunity. This new AD modifies the TLS of the manufacturer's engine manual and an air carrier's approved continuous airworthiness maintenance program to incorporate additional inspection requirements.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            0.971

The existing AD currently requires inspection, replacement if necessary, and proper clamping of externally mounted fuel injector fuel lines. That AD also exempts engines that have a Maintenance and Overhaul Manual with an Airworthiness Limitations Section that requires inspection and replacement, if necessary, of externally mounted fuel injector lines.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                1.3

(Air Tractor) Models AT-802 and AT-802A airplanes. We have since revised AD 2010-17-18, which requires you to repetitively inspect (using the eddy current method) the two outboard fastener holes in both of the wing main spar lower caps at the center splice joint for cracks and repair or replace any cracked spar, and changes the safe life for certain serial number (SN) ranges.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              0.208
FAA                                               The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to all Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. That AD currently requires inspecting to determine if certain carriage spindles are installed, repetitive inspections for corrosion and indications of corrosion on affected carriage spindles, and if necessary, related investigative and corrective actions. That AD also provides an optional terminating action. This new AD mandates the optional terminating action, which eliminates the need for the repetitive inspections. This AD results from reports of corrosion found on carriage spindles that are located on the outboard trailing edge flaps.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             0.867
FAA   Several cases of Gas Generator (GG) Turbine Blade rupture occurred in service on ARRIEL 2 twin engine applications and recently one on a single engine helicopter. For the case occurring in flight on a single engine helicopter (ARRIEL 2B1 engine), the pilot performed an emergency autorotation, landing the helicopter without further incident.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          4.8
FAA                                                                                 We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above, except for those that are currently affected by similar action through any of five ADs applicable to Boeing products. This proposed AD would require an inspection/records check to determine the manufacturer and part number of the oxygen mask assemblies installed, an inspection to determine the manufacturing date and modification status if certain oxygen mask assemblies are installed, and corrective action for certain oxygen mask assemblies.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                19.4
FAA                                                                                                                      That AD currently requires sealing the fasteners on the front and rear spars inside the left and right main fuel tanks and on the rear spar and lower panel of the center fuel tank. That AD also requires inspections of the wire bundle support installations to verify if certain clamps are installed and if Teflon sleeving covers the wire bundles inside the left and right equipment cooling system bays, on the left and right rear spars, and on the left and right front spars; and corrective actions if necessary.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               32
FAA       This proposed AD would require removing and replacing the pilot or co-pilot life raft deployment handle (handle) located on the left side of the “broom closet” of the helicopter. This proposed AD is prompted by an incident that occurred where the handle bent prior to the life raft deploying, and this prohibited the crew from successfully deploying and using the life raft. It was determined that the handle in this incident was not manufactured to the approved Type Design.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                0.119
FAA                   This AD was prompted by our determination that the compliance time specified for Models G-164, G-164A, and G-164B airplanes does not adequately address the unsafe condition. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion in the rudder main tubular spar, which could result in failure of the rudder main spar tube.

FAA       On some Falcon 7X aeroplanes, it has been determined potential low clearance between electrical wiring or hydraulic pipe and nearby structure. Although no in service incident has been reported, there is no certainty that the minimum clearances would be maintained over time. In the worst case, interference or contact with structure might occur and lead to electrical short circuits or fluid leakage, potentially resulting in loss of several functions essential for safe flight.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             0.116
FAA                   Two cases of main landing gear collapse had been reported. Main landing gear collapse may result in unsafe landing of the aircraft.Show citation box.

FAA                                                         This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the specified Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) model helicopters. This AD requires replacing the aluminum tail rotor (T/R) blade pitch control shaft with a steel T/R blade pitch control shaft. This AD is prompted by an incident involving a Eurocopter Model AS-365N2 helicopter on which there was a loss of control of the T/R due to a broken shaft. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent failure of the T/R blade pitch control shaft, loss of T/R control, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     0.163
FAA                                         We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. That AD currently requires repetitive inspections and torque checks of the hanger fittings and strut forward bulkhead of the forward engine mount and adjacent support structure, and visual inspections of the internal angle and external bulkhead chord and detailed inspection of internal angles, and corrective actions if necessary. The existing AD also provides for an optional inspection. This new AD requires additional inspections of airplanes that have hi-lok bolts and collars at all of the Group B fastener locations, except fastener 13, and related investigative and corrective actions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             0.822
FAA                This document publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting Emergency Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-26-51, which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of the specified model helicopters by individual letters. This AD also supersedes existing AD 2009-08-03. This AD is prompted by another incident in which the tail rotor blade (blade) tip weight separated from a blade during flight causing vibration. This unsafe condition led to the determination that additional blades could be affected and should be added to the applicability. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent loss of the blade tip weight, loss of a blade, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  0.635
FAA     This proposed AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent an ignition source inside the fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  0.135
FAA                       The pylon internal shear pin was found cracked during a regular check. Further investigation revealed that the failure occurred due to hydrogen embrittlement. The ANAC [Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil] is issuing this AD to prevent insufficient strength of the pylon to wing attachment, which in combination with an engine imbalance caused by a fan blade out could cause pylon to wing attachment failure and consequent engine separation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    0.234
FAA                                This proposed AD was prompted by reports of in-flight loss of the off-wing escape slide. We are proposing this AD to prevent in-flight loss of the off-wing escape slide, which could result in the unavailability of the escape slide during a time-critical evacuation. Additionally, the departed slide could cause damage to the fuselage, wing, flaps, or stabilizer, which could degrade flight control.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    2.955
FAA                               This proposed AD would require a detailed inspection to detect distress and existing repairs to the leading edge structure of the vertical stabilizer at the splice at Station Zfs = 52.267; repetitive inspections for cracking in the front spar cap forward flanges of the vertical stabilizer, and either the aft flanges or side skins; repetitive inspections for loose and missing fasteners; and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                0.964

Depending on environmental-, operating- and runway conditions, the affected MLG joint, Part Number (P/N) D60-3217-23-5x (4 different lengths are available), which is made of aluminum, is susceptible to cracking.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   0.131
FAA                                              We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the left and right upper center skin panels of the horizontal stabilizer, and corrective action if necessary. This AD was prompted by a report of a crack found in the upper skin panel at the aft inboard corner of a right horizontal stabilizer. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the upper center skin panels of the horizontal stabilizer. Uncorrected cracks might ultimately lead to the loss of overall structural integrity of the horizontal stabilizer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  0.110
FAA             Prompted by a reported in-service event, EASA issued AD 2009-0084 to prevent unwanted movement of pilot- or co-pilot seat in the horizontal direction which is considered as potentially unsafe, especially during the takeoff phase when the speed of the aeroplane is greater than 100 knots and until landing gear retraction.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    0.704
FAA                                This new AD also requires replacing the hardware of the downstop assembly with new hardware of the downstop assembly, doing a detailed inspection or a borescope inspection of the slat cans on each wing and the lower rail of the slat main tracks for debris, replacing the bolts of the aft side guide with new bolts, and removing any debris found in the slat can.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         6.480
FAA                                                                               This AD requires measuring the electrical bond resistance between the motor operated valve (MOV) actuators and airplane structure for the main, center, auxiliary, and horizontal stabilizer fuel tanks, as applicable, and corrective action if necessary; revising the maintenance program to incorporate airworthiness limitation (AWL) No. 28-AWL-21 or AWL No. 28-AWL-27, as applicable; and replacing production-installed laminate phenolic spacers with metallic spacers between the fuel jettison MOV and the airplane structure, as applicable.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          0.209
FAA                                                                                         An event has been reported where Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) elevator tips have been found deformed on in-service aircraft. The outboard three inches of the elevator tip assembly profiles (top and bottom surfaces) had changed from being convex profiles to concave profiles. There is concern that this could potentially result in, or be caused by, internal structural delamination and/or failure. Such a failure could have a serious effect on the aircraft handling and could potentially result in loss of control of the aircraft.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               1.300
FAA                      There have been failures of the harness assembly (power feeder wires) connecting the Air-Driven Generator (ADG) to the aeroplane electrical system, in the area close to the ADG cannon plug. Several electrical wires were found cut as a combined result of corrosion and bending stress from the harness mounting to the ADG.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  2.300
FAA                        This proposed AD was prompted by in-service damage of the attachment fittings for the thrust reverser actuator. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct such damage, which could result in actuator attach fitting failure, loss of the thrust reverser auto restow function, and consequent loss of control of the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            4.000
FAA     An operator reported several cases of wire damages at the pylon/wing interface. Analysis revealed that wires damages are due to installation quality issue resulting from lack of information in installation drawings and job cards.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              0.468
FAA                                                                                                               This new AD requires the same torque inspection, blade, and Tinidur nut replacement actions, but requires replacement of the LPT-to-exhaust case bolts with longer bolts made of Tinidur material. This AD also requires installation of crushable sleeve spacers on the bolts. This AD was prompted by nine reports of failure of Tinidur material LPT-to-exhaust case bolts, as a result of blade failure, since AD 2005-02-03 became effective. We are issuing this AD to prevent turbine blade failures that could result in uncontained engine debris and damage to the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   13.600

These cracks can significantly affect the structural integrity of seat backrests.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             5.900
FAA                                                   We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD requires installing new in-line fuses for the fuel level float switch and new in-line fuses for the pressure switch, as applicable, and changing the wiring. The proposed actions would affect the left and right wing forward spars, center wing forward spar, forward auxiliary fuel tank, and aft auxiliary fuel tank, as applicable. This AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     0.795
FAA                                                        There have recently been several in-service occurrences that have highlighted the inability of the existing [wing anti-ice] system to detect a low-heat condition in the wing leading edge at all times, with the potential consequence of unannunciated asymmetric ice build-up on the wing. * * * Such a condition, in combination with maneuvers close to stick shaker activation, could possibly result in reduced controllability of the aircraft.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         6.800

This AD was prompted by the manufacturer revising related service information and adding an airplane model to the list of affected airplanes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   0.145
FAA                                   We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD requires an inspection of the elevator spar for cracks and, if any crack is found, either replacement with a serviceable elevator spar that is found free of cracks or repair/modification with an FAA-approved method. This AD also requires reporting to the FAA the results of the inspection.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          0.525
FAA                                            This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the upper and lower main wing spar cap angles for cracks and/or corrosion and installing inspection access panels. This AD would also require replacing the wing spar cap angles if moderate or severe corrosion is found and applying corrosion inhibitor.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        1.020
FAA                                                         This action also revises that NPRM by proposing an alternative location for the installation of the new panel assemblies for airplanes that have the optional water system drain plumbing and changing the interconnecting wiring between the P141 panel and the P36 and P37 panels. For airplanes with a deactivated center fuel tank, this action revises that NPRM by proposing an alternative functional test for the left and right override/jettison pumps. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent possible sources of ignition in a fuel tank caused by electrical fault or uncommanded dry operation of the main tank boost pumps and center auxiliary tank override and jettison pumps.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   73.900
FAA                     We are superseding an existing emergency airworthiness directive (EAD) for the Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc. (Bell) Model 212 helicopters with a certain main rotor hub inboard strap fitting (fitting) installed. That EAD requires, before further flight, removing certain serial-numbered fittings and replacing them with airworthy fittings. It also requires performing a magnetic particle inspection (MPI) on fittings with certain serial numbers (S/Ns) to inspect for a crack.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         0.456
FAA                                                      Several cases have been reported of cracks in the joint extrusions securing the outer bondment to the acoustic panel of the nacelle transcowl assemblies. Although there is no effect on flight safety (thrust reverser stowed), thrust reverser deployment under rejected take-off or emergency landing load conditions could potentially result in acoustic panel failure and possible runway debris.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           0.245
FAA                                            Under this regulation, all holders of type certificates for passenger transport aeroplanes * * * are required to conduct a design review against explosion risks. The replacement of some types of P-clips and improvement of the electrical bonding of the equipment in the fuel tanks [were] are rendered mandatory                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       0.108
FAA               This proposed AD would add a requirement to install dual pane No. 2 and No. 3 windows. This proposed AD also removes certain airplanes from the applicability. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the fail-safe interlayer of certain No. 2 and No. 3 glass windows, which could result in loss of the window and consequent rapid loss of cabin pressure. Loss of the window could also result in crew communication difficulties or incapacitation of the crew.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                6.500

We are proposing this AD to prevent the potential for ignition sources inside fuel tanks caused by latent failures, alterations, repairs, or maintenance actions, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               0.868

FAA                                     A specific failure case of the THSA [trimmable horizontal stabilizer actuator] upper primary attachment, which may result in a loading of the upper secondary attachment, has been identified by analysis.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         0.722
FAA                                     This AD requires removing certain power turbine rotors from service using a specific drawdown schedule. This AD was prompted by reports of fatigue cracks in the airfoil of the power turbine blades. We are issuing this AD to prevent fracture of the power turbine blade airfoil, which could result in sudden loss of engine power and prevent continued safe flight or safe landing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          17.400
FAA                       There have been four reports of loose or detached main landing gear torque link apex pin locking plate and the locking plate retainer bolt. This condition could result in torque link apex pin disengagement, heavy vibration during landing, damage to main landing gear components and subsequent main landing gear collapse.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 0.153
FAA                            It has been found occurrence of screw units manufactured with metallographic non-conformity that may increase their susceptibility to brittle fracture. The screw failure may result in loss of the related balance washer causing a possible ram air turbine (RAT) imbalance event, which may result in RAT structural failure, which associated with an electrical emergency situation, could result in loss of power to airplane flight controls hydraulic back-up system.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               0.184

We are issuing this proposed AD to prevent failure of the aileron assembly and associated parts, which could result in loss of control.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     0.994
FAA                                                     This proposed AD would revise that AD by introducing as an optional terminating action for the initial and repetitive ultrasonic inspections of that AD, replacement of propeller hub P/N 660709201 with a new propeller hub, P/N 660717226. We are proposing this AD to prevent that same propeller hub failure due to cracks in the hub, which could result in loss of control of the airplane, and to introduce an optional terminating action.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 2.500

This action revises the original NPRM by adding airplanes to the applicability. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent an undetected failure of the primary load path for the ballscrew in the drive mechanism of the HSTA and subsequent wear and failure of the secondary load path, which could lead to loss of control of the horizontal stabilizer and consequent loss of control of the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  10.800
FAA                                                         This [Brazilian] AD results from reports of cracking in the firewall of the auxiliary power unit (APU). This AD is being issued to detect and correct this cracking, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the fuselage and empennage in the event that a fire penetrates through the firewall of the APU.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     0.113
FAA                                                      This AD results from a report of fatigue cracking of the wing upper and lower rainbow fittings during durability testing and on in-service airplanes. Analysis of in-service cracking has shown that these rainbow fittings are susceptible to multiple site fatigue damage. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct such fatigue cracks, which could grow large and lead to the failure of the fitting and a catastrophic failure of the center wing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       3.400

For certain airplanes, this proposed AD would also require moving certain rows of passenger seats. For certain other airplanes, this proposed AD would require inspecting certain areas of the seat tracks for damage and corrective actions if necessary, and moving certain rows of passenger seats. This proposed AD results from reports that the aft seat leg fittings span the station (STA) 521.45 stay-out zone. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the seat attachment structure and possible injury to passengers during an emergency landing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     1.800

In one occurrence, the trapped water caused severe corrosion of numerous anchor nuts that secure the windshield to the lower windshield frame, such that the intended fastening function was seriously compromised.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                0.641

FAA                                   During manufacture of a number of HP Compressor Stage 1 and 2 discs with axial dovetail slots, anomalies at the disc post corners have been found. Fatigue crack initiation and subsequent crack propagation at the disc post may result in release of two blades and the disc post. This may potentially be beyond the containment capabilities of the engine casings. Thus, these anomalies present at the disc posts constitute a potentially unsafe condition.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   0.630
FAA                                                     During manufacture of high-pressure (HP) compressor stage 1 discs, a small number of parts have been rejected due to a machining defect that was found during inspection. Analysis of the possibility of less severe examples having been undetected and passed into service has concluded that action is required to reduce the risk of failure. It was therefore necessary to reduce the life limit.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             1.100
FAA   We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD would require inspecting the wings for internal and external damage, repairing any damage, reinforcing the wings, installing operational limitation placards in the cockpit, and adding limitations to the airplane flight manual supplement. This proposed AD was prompted by a review of installed Flint Aero, Inc. wing tip auxiliary fuel tanks, Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA5090NM. We are issuing this proposed AD to detect and correct damage in the wings and to prevent overload failure of the wing due to the installation of the STC. Damage in the wing or overload failure of the wing could result in structural failure of the wing, which could result in loss of control.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        0.105
FAA                                                        Hamilton Sundstrand (HS), the manufacturer of the RAT [ram air turbine], reported the failure during a wind tunnel test of a balance weight fastening screw on the RAT turbine cover. After investigation, it has been discovered that a batch of screws, which are used to attach the balance washers of the HS RAT Turbine Assembly, has not been subject to the correct heat treatment and are consequently exposed to potential fracture.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   0.271

FAA                                                       We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above with certain part number (P/N) fan rotor spinners installed. This proposed AD would require removing from service certain fan rotor blade retainers, and removing from service the fan rotor spinner support that was installed with those fan rotor blade retainers. This proposed AD was prompted by a fan rotor spinner support found cracked at the attachment lugs. We are proposing this AD to prevent high-cycle fatigue cracking of the fan rotor spinner support attachment lugs, leading to separation of the fan rotor spinner assembly, uncontained failure of the engine, and damage to the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          1.700

These MFCV do not provide adequate electrical bonding between the valve and the adjacent fitting.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 0.196
FAA                                                                                                                                                                                               We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD was prompted by events of excessive rudder pedal inputs and consequent high loads on the vertical stabilizer on several airplanes. High loads on the vertical stabilizer that exceed ultimate design loads could cause failure of the vertical stabilizer and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address this unsafe condition.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        42.6
FAA                         On January 12, 2009, the FAA publis hed a notice of propos ed rulemaking on qualification, s ervice, and us e of crewmembers and aircraft dis patchers . Becaus e of the complexity of the is s ues and the concerns rais ed by commenters , the FAA is is s uing this s upplemental notice of propos ed rulemaking. The FAA propos es to amend the regulations for crewmember and aircraft dis patcher training programs in domes tic, flag, and s upplemental operations . The propos ed regulations enhance traditional training programs by requiring the us e of flight s imulation training devices for flightcrew members and including additional training and evaluation requirements for all crewmembers and aircraft dis patchers in areas that are critical to s afety. The propos al als o reorganiz es and revis es the qualification, training, and evaluation requirements . The propos ed changes are intended to contribute s ignificantly to reducing aviation accidents .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  290.3

FAA                                    W e propos e to adopt a new airworthines s directive (AD) for the products lis ted above. For certain airplanes , this propos ed AD would require the ins tallation of new relays adjacent to two of the s poiler control modules that would prevent the deployment of certain s poiler pairs when landing flaps are s elected. For certain other airplanes , this propos ed AD would require torquing the bracket as s embly ins tallation nuts and ground s tud nuts , and doing bond res is tance tes ts between the bracket as s emblies and the terminal lugs on the ground s tuds . This propos ed AD is prompted by numerous reports of unintended lateral os cillations during the final approach, jus t before landing. W e are propos ing this AD to reduce the chance of unintended lateral os cillations near touchdown, which could res ult in los s of lateral control of the airplane, and cons equent airplane damage or injury to flight crew and pas s engers .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    5.6
FAA                               There have been several findings of cracking at the firtrees of LP Turbine discs. Fatigue crack initiation and subsequent crack propagation at the firtree may result in multiple LP Turbine blade release. The latter may potentially be beyond the containment capabilities of the engine casings. Thus, cracking at the firtrees of LP Turbine discs constitutes a potentially unsafe condition.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       1.4

This propos ed AD would require eddy current ins pection (ECI) or s pot fluores cent penetrant ins pection (FPI) of the s tages 1-2 rotating s eal teeth of the H PC s tages 2-5 s pool for cracks and would prohibit ins tallation of H PC s tator s tage 1 inters tage s eals that are not pregrooved to prevent heavy rubs . This propos ed AD was prompted by an aborted takeoff and two s hop findings of cracks in the s tages 1-2 rotating s eal teeth. W e are propos ing this AD to detect cracks in the H PC s tages 1-2 rotating s eal teeth due to heavy rubs , which could res ult in failure of the s tages 1-2 rotating s eal of the H PC s tages 2-5 s pool, uncontained engine failure, and damage to the airplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               0.19

That AD currently requires an inspection to determine if a certain fuel pump housing electrical connector is installed. The existing AD also requires a revision to the FAA-approved airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew of the appropriate procedures for disabling certain fuel pump electrical circuits following failure of a fuel pump housing electrical connector if applicable. The existing AD also requires the deactivation of certain fuel tanks or fuel pumps and the installation of placards if applicable.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      3.1
FAA                                       During a production process review, a deviation in hardening of certain Part Number (P/N) 944072 washers has been detected, which exceeds the hardness of the design specification. The affected washers are part of the magneto ring flywheel hub installation and have been installed on a limited number of engines. No defective washers have been shipped as spare parts.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               0.978

This AD requires a nondes tructive ins pection (N DI), eddy current or fluores cent penetrant ins pection (FPI), of each main gearbox (MG B) upper hous ing as s embly rib on the left, right, and forward MG B mounting foot at s pecified intervals bas ed on the MG B upper hous ing as s embly hours time-in-s ervice (TIS). If there is a crack, this AD requires replacing the MG B upper hous ing as s embly with an airworthy MG B upper hous ing as s embly. This AD is prompted by a report of a crack found on the MG B upper hous ing as s embly left mounting foot forward rib that cannot be detected vis ually.

This action requires replacing each unairworthy portable fire extinguisher with an airworthy portable fire extinguisher. This amendment is prompted by an ongoing investigation that has established that unapproved Halon 1211 has been used to fill L'Hotellier portable fire extinguishers that are likely to be onboard various model helicopters. The actions specified in this AD are intended to prevent using contaminated gas that may reduce fire suppression and release toxic fumes that would endanger the safety of the helicopter and its occupants.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     0.297

It was discovered that during or after heavy rain, the pitot-static tubing may become partially or completely blocked by water, which fails to enter the drain bottles. Investigation revealed that drain bottles used in the primary pitot-static system include check valves, which impede the entry of water into the drain bottle. This condition, if not corrected, may result in erroneous airspeed and altitude indications.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     1.4

This non-conformity has a direct impact on the HSTA life limit. The teeth of these non-conformant RBGs could break and in extreme cases, could lead to uncontrolled HSTA movement without the ability to re-trim the aeroplane. If not corrected, this condition could result in a difficulty to control the pitch and subsequent loss of the aeroplane.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               0.296

We are proposing this AD to prevent flammable fluid from leaking onto the engine exhaust nozzle which could result in a fire.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       0.91

FAA                          This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the specified Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc. (BHT) model helicopters with tail rotor (T/R) blades with certain serial numbers installed. This action requires a one-time inspection of the T/R blade for corrosion or pitting, and repairing or replacing the T/R blade, if that condition is found during the inspection. This amendment is prompted by a report from the manufacturer that T/R blades with certain serial numbers may have manufacturing anomalies in the spar area. These actions are intended to detect corrosion or pitting in the forward spar area of a T/R blade to prevent a crack in the T/R blade, loss of the T/R blade, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        0.277

FAA                                                        We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD would require either replacement of the stabilator horn assembly or repetitive inspection of the stabilator horn assembly for corrosion or cracks with replacement of the stabilator horn assembly if any corrosion or cracks are found. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracks developing in the stabilator horn assembly. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct corrosion or cracks in the stabilator horn assembly. Corrosion or cracks could lead to failure of the stabilator horn. Consequently, failure of the stabilator horn could lead to a loss of pitch control in flight.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           3.1

This proposed AD would require repetitive detailed inspection and high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections for cracks of the wing center section (WCS) spanwise beams, and repair if necessary. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracks found in the web pockets of the WCS spanwise beams. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the WCS spanwise beams, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the wings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        0.68

This proposed AD would require replacing the rub strips of the tail fuel tank access door with new rub strips. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that the rub strips of the tail fuel tank access door were manufactured improperly. We are proposing this AD to prevent inadequate electrical bonding between the rub strips and the fuel access door, which can contribute to possible ignition of flammable fuel vapor in the tail fuel tank as a result of a lightning strike.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     0.326

FAA                 During a production process review, a deviation in hardening of certain Part Number (P/N) 944072 washers has been detected, which exceeds the hardness of the design specification.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 0.23
FAA                                                                            A broken aileron servo actuator centering spring rod was discovered on a model G100 aircraft during a routine scheduled maintenance inspection. * * * This latent failure of a centering spring rod, if not detected and corrected, in conjunction with the disconnection of the normal mechanical control system of the same servo actuator would lead to loss [of] control of the flight control surface [aileron or elevator]. This condition would reduce the control capability of the airplane and imposes a higher workload on the flight crew reducing their ability to cope with adverse operating conditions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 0.323

This proposed AD was prompted by an updated low-cycle fatigue (LCF) life analysis performed by Pratt & Whitney. This proposed AD would require removing certain part number (P/N) high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 1 and HPT stage 2 airseals and HPT stage 1 airseal rings before their published life limit, and establishes a new lower life limit for these parts. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              40.6
FAA                      W e are adopting a new airworthines s directive (AD) for the products lis ted above. This AD requires a detailed ins pection to detect dis tres s and exis ting repairs to the leading edge s tructure of the vertical s tabiliz er at the s plice at Station Zfs = 52.267; repetitive ins pections for cracking in the front s par cap forward flanges of the vertical s tabiliz er, and either the aft flanges or s ide s kins ; repetitive ins pections for loos e and mis s ing fas teners ; and related inves tigative and corrective actions if neces s ary. This AD was prompted by reports of cracked vertical s tabiliz er s kin, a s evered front s par cap, elongated fas tener holes at the leading edge of the vertical s tabiliz er, and a cracked front s par web and front s par cap bolt holes in the vertical s tabiliz er. W e are is s uing this AD to detect and correct s uch cracking damage, which could res ult in the s tructure being unable to s upport limit load, and could lead to the los s of the vertical s tabiliz er.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     0.964

The Commis s ion als o revis es the telecommunications rate formula for pole attachments cons is tent with the s tatutory framework, reinterprets the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, to allow incumbent LECs to file complaints before the Commis s ion if they believe a pole attachment rate, term, or condition is unjus t and unreas onable, and confirms wireles s providers are entitled to the s ame rate as other telecommunications carriers . In addition, the Commis s ion res olves multiple petitions for recons ideration and addres s es various points regarding the nondis criminatory us e of attachment techniques .

The development and deployment of well-designed signal boosters holds great potential to empower consumers in rural and underserved areas to improve their wireless coverage in their homes, at their jobs, and when they travel by car, recreational vehicle, or boat.

Policies for managing rights of way and s iting wireles s facilities , including the procedures and cos ts for acquiring permis s ion to build, affect how long it takes and how much it cos ts to deploy broadband. By working together with other interes ted parties on thes e is s ues , the Commis s ion can reduce the cos ts and time required for broadband deployment, both fixed and mobile, which will help unleas h private inves tment in infras tructure, increas e efficient us e of s carce public res ources (including s pectrum) and increas e broadband adoption.

FDA                                            The proposed rule would describe the process and statutory criteria for requesting an exemption and explain how FDA would review requests for exemptions.

With these amendments, tobacco products will be subject to the same general requirements that apply to other FDA-regulated products.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           0.376

As required by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), FDA is issuing this interim final rule to change the criteria for ordering administrative detention of human or animal food. Under the new criteria, FDA can order administrative detention if there is reason to believe that an article of food is adulterated or misbranded. This will further help FDA prevent potentially harmful food from reaching U.S. consumers and thereby improve the safety of the U.S. food supply.

The record does not currently contain sufficient data to indicate that there is additional clinical benefit above SPF 50. This proposal is part of FDA's ongoing review of these products to ensure their safety and effectiveness.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    0.657

This final rule s pecifies the color graphic images that mus t accompany each of the nine new textual warning s tatements .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                519.3

The final rule describes the process and statutory criteria for requesting an exemption and explains how FDA reviews requests for exemptions. This regulation satisfies the requirement in the Tobacco Control Act that FDA issue regulations implementing the exemption provision.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   1.4
           FDIC                                                                                    The FDIC is issuing an interim final rule (“Rule”), with request for comments, which implements certain provisions of its authority to resolve covered financial companies under Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”). The FDIC's purpose in issuing this Rule is to provide greater clarity and certainty about how key components of this authority will be implemented and to ensure that the liquidation process under Title II reflects the Dodd-Frank Act's mandate of transparency in the liquidation of failing systemic financial companies.




           FDIC                                                                                                                                                       The FDIC is adopting a final rule amending its deposit insurance regulations to implement an amendment to section 11(a)(1)(B)(iii) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act), as added by section 343 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Pub. L. 111-203), that includes Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts (“IOLTAs”) in the definition of “noninterest-bearing transaction account” for purposes of providing unlimited deposit insurance for such accounts for two years starting December 31, 2010.




           FDIC                        The FDIC is amending its regulations to implement revisions to the Federal Deposit Insurance Act made by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank”) by modifying the definition of an institution's deposit insurance assessment base; to change the assessment rate adjustments; to revise the deposit insurance assessment rate schedules in light of the new assessment base and altered adjustments; to implement Dodd-Frank's dividend provisions; to revise the large insured depository institution assessment system to better differentiate for risk and better take into account losses from large institution failures that the FDIC may incur; and to make technical and other changes to the FDIC's assessment rules.




           FDIC                            The FDIC is proposing and requests comments on a rule that would implement certain provisions of its authority to resolve covered financial companies under Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act” or the “Act”).




           FDIC                                        Effective July 21, 2011, the statutory prohibition against the payment of interest on demand deposits will be repealed pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the DFA).1 In light of this, the FDIC proposes to rescind regulations that have implemented this prohibition with respect to state-chartered nonmember (SNM) banks. Because the regulations include a definition of “interest” that may assist the FDIC in interpreting a recent statutory amendment that provides temporary, unlimited deposit insurance coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, the FDIC also proposes to retain and move the definition of “interest” into the deposit insurance regulations.




           FDIC                                                                                                    The FDIC is proposing regulations that would impose requirements for foreign currency futures, options on futures, and options that an insured depository institution supervised by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation engages in with retail customers. Pursuant to section 742(c) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, such transactions will be prohibited as of July 16, 2011, in the absence of the proposed requirements. The proposed regulations would also impose requirements on other foreign currency transactions that are functionally or economically similar to futures, options on futures, or options.




           FDIC                                The FDIC is issuing a final rule amending its regulations to reflect section 627 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the DFA),1 repealing the prohibition against the payment of interest on demand deposit accounts effective July 21, 2011.

As part of this rulemaking, FHFA will incorporate limits on the Banks' investment in mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and certain asset-backed securities (ABS) that were previously set forth in the Finance Board's Financial Management Policy (FMP). The FMP will terminate as of the effective date of this rule.




Federal Motor Carrier Ad.            The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) proposes to amend the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to require certain motor carriers operating commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce to use electronic on-board recorders (EOBRs) to document their drivers' hours of service (HOS).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                1,900

     Federal Reserve                              The Board is adopting a final rule to implement the conformance period during which banking entities and nonbank financial companies supervised by the Board must bring their activities and investments into compliance with the prohibitions and restrictions on proprietary trading and relationships with hedge funds and private equity funds imposed by section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”).




     Federal Reserve          The Board is publishing a final rule to amend Regulation Z, which implements the Truth in Lending Act (TILA). The final rule implements Section 1461 of the recently enacted Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Section 1461 amends TILA to provide a separate, higher rate threshold for determining when the Board's escrow requirement applies to higher-priced mortgage loans that exceed the maximum principal obligation eligible for purchase by Freddie Mac.

     Federal Reserve                                                                                                                                         The OCC, Board, FDIC, OTS, NCUA, SEC, and FHFA (the Agencies) are proposing rules to implement section 956 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The proposed rule would require the reporting of incentive-based compensation arrangements by a covered financial institution and prohibit incentive-based compensation arrangements at a covered financial institution that provide excessive compensation or that could expose the institution to inappropriate risks that could lead to material financial loss.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           26.5
     Federal Reserve                   The proposed amendments implement the Dodd-Frank Act's repeal of Section 19(i). The proposed amendments would also repeal the Board's published interpretation of Regulation Q. The proposed amendments also remove references to Regulation Q found in the Board's other regulations, interpretations, and commentary.




     Federal Reserve                     The Board and the Corporation reques t comment on this propos ed rule that implements the requirements in s ection 165(d) of the Dodd-Frank W all Street Reform and Cons umer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) regarding res olution plans and credit expos ure reports . Section 165(d) requires each nonbank financial company s upervis ed by the Board and each bank holding company with as s ets of $50 billion or more to report periodically to the Board, the Corporation, and the Financial Stability Overs ight Council (the “Council”) the plan of s uch company for rapid and orderly res olution in the event of material financial dis tres s or failure, and the nature and extent of credit expos ures of s uch company to s ignificant bank holding companies and s ignificant nonbank financial companies and the nature and extent of the credit expos ures of s ignificant bank holding companies and s ignificant nonbank financial companies to s uch company.




     Federal Reserve                                                                                        The Board is publis hing for public comment a propos ed rule amending Regulation Z (Truth in Lending) to implement amendments to the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) made by the Dodd-Frank W all Street Reform and Cons umer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act or Act). Regulation Z currently prohibits a creditor from making a higher-priced mortgage loan without regard to the cons umer's ability to repay the loan. The propos al would implement s tatutory changes made by the Dodd-Frank Act that expand the s cope of the ability-to-repay requirement to cover any cons umer credit trans action s ecured by a dwelling (excluding an open-end credit plan, times hare plan, revers e mortgage, or temporary loan). In addition, the propos al would es tablis h s tandards for complying with the ability-to-repay requirement, including by making a “qualified mortgage.”

This propos ed rule implements s ections 731 and 764 of the Dodd-Frank W all Street Reform and Cons umer Protection Act, which require the Agencies to adopt rules jointly to es tablis h capital requirements and initial and variation margin requirements for s uch entities on all non-cleared s waps and non-cleared s ecurity-bas ed s waps in order to offs et the greater ris k to s uch entities and the financial s ys tem aris ing from the us e of s waps and s ecurity-bas ed s waps that are not cleared.

The proposal contains new protections for consumers who send remittance transfers to consumers or entities in a foreign country, by providing consumers with disclosures and error resolution rights. The proposed amendments implement statutory requirements set forth in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.




     Federal Reserve                                The Board is proposing amendments to Regulation Y to require large bank holding companies to submit capital plans to the Federal Reserve on an annual basis and to require such bank holding companies to provide prior notice to the Federal Reserve under certain circumstances before making a capital distribution.

The rule addresses the scope of the persons that are required to file reports of foreign financial accounts. The rule further specifies the types of accounts that are reportable, and provides filing relief in the form of exemptions for certain persons with signature or other authority over foreign financial accounts. Finally, the rule adopts provisions intended to prevent persons subject to the rule from avoiding their reporting requirement.

The amendments establish labeling requirements for televisions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             2.6
          FTC                                     The Commission seeks public comment on its Labeling Requirements for Alternative Fuels and Alternative Fueled Vehicles (``Alternative Fuels Rule'' or ``Rule''). As part of its systematic review of all FTC rules and guides, the Commission requests public comment on the overall costs, benefits, necessity, and regulatory and economic impact of the Alternative Fuels Rule. The Commission also seeks comment on whether to merge its alternative fueled vehicle (AFV) labels with fuel economy labels proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA); add new definitions for AFVs contained in recent legislation; and change labeling requirements for used AFVs.




          GSA              DoD, GSA, and NASA have adopted as final, without change, an interim rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement section 615 of Division C, Title VI, of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010, to authorize exemption from the Buy American Act for acquisition of information technology that is a commercial item.




          GSA                                                                                                                          DoD, GSA, and NASA have adopted as final, with changes, the interim rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement section 743 of Division D of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009. Section 743 of Division D of this Act prohibits the award of contracts using appropriated funds to any foreign incorporated entity that is treated as an inverted domestic corporation or to any subsidiary of one. For Fiscal Year (FY) 2010, the same restrictions were continued under section 740 of Division C of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010.




          GSA                            The General Services Administration (GSA) is issuing an interim rule amending the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to revise sections to implement policy and guidelines for contracts and orders that include information technology (IT) supplies, services and systems with security requirements.

Through this proposed rule, HUD strives to ensure that its core programs are open to all eligible individuals and families regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.




          HHS                                                                                                                                                                                    This document contains a proposed regulation that would establish rules for student health insurance coverage under the Public Health Service Act and the Affordable Care Act. The proposed rule would define “student health insurance coverage” as a type of individual health insurance coverage, and, pursuant to section 1560(c) of the Affordable Care Act, specify certain Public Health Service Act and Affordable Care Act requirements as inapplicable to this type of individual health insurance coverage.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 3
          HHS                                                This proposed rule sets forth a procedural framework for submission and review of initial applications for a Waiver for State Innovation described in section 1332 of the Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act including processes to ensure opportunities for public input in the development of such applications by States and in the Federal review of the applications.




          HHS                           This final rule with comment period implements requirements for health insurance issuers regarding disclosure and review of unreasonable premium increases under section 2794 of the Public Health Service Act. The final rule establishes a rate review program to ensure that all rate increases that meet or exceed a specified threshold are reviewed by a State or CMS to determine whether they are unreasonable and that certain rate information be made public.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        20

These rules are intended to respond to feedback from a wide range of stakeholders on the interim final regulations and to assist plans and issuers in coming into full compliance with the law through an orderly and expeditious implementation process.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        1.7

Specifically, in section 1104(b)(2) of the Affordable Care Act, Congress required the adoption of operating rules for the health care industry and directed the Secretary of Health and Human Services to “adopt a single set of operating rules for each transaction * * * with the goal of creating as much uniformity in the implementation of the electronic standards as possible.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    5,958

L. 111-148) as amended by the H ealth Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-152), referred to collectively as the Affordable Care Act. The Exchanges will provide competitive marketplaces for individuals and s mall employers to directly compare available private health ins urance options on the bas is of price, quality, and other factors .

   Homeland Security                           Pursuant to the Department of Homeland Security's REAL ID regulations, States must be in full compliance with the REAL ID Act of 2005 by May 11, 2011. This final rule changes that date to January 15, 2013. This change will give States the time necessary to ensure that driver's licenses and identification cards issued by States meet the security requirements of the REAL ID Act.




          HUD              This rule proposes a change to the Public Housing Agency Annual Plan regulation to incorporate the definition of qualified public housing agencies (PHAs), which was mandated by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008, and to decouple or separate the CFP informational requirements from the PHA Annual Plan requirements.




          HUD                                    HUD proposes to revise its regulations governing the eligibility for FHA insurance of mortgages used for the purchase or refinancing of existing multifamily housing projects. Although the statutory language authorizing such insurance does not distinguish between rental or cooperative multifamily projects, HUD's current regulations limit FHA insurance to existing rental projects.




          HUD                    The changes implemented by this interim rule are intended to enhance the efficiency and utility of HUD's Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS). The interim rule makes 2 sets of amendments to improve evaluation and oversight of the Public Housing Program. First, it amends the PHAS regulations for the purposes of: Consolidating the regulations governing assessment of public housing in one part of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR); revising certain PHAS regulations based on HUD's experience with PHAS since it was established as the new system for evaluating a public housing agency (PHA) in 1998; and updating certain PHAS procedures to reflect recent changes in public housing operations from conversion by PHAs to asset management.




          HUD                                                                                                                     The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, recently enacted into law, reauthorized the 1975 statute, with certain amendments, and made $1 billion available for this 1975 program during Fiscal Year (FY) 2011. Accordingly, HUD is reinstating the regulations for the program, under the title of “Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program,” with such modifications as necessary to mirror the statutory changes to the Emergency Homeowners' Relief Act of 1975 made by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           165.86
          HUD              The OCC, Board, FDIC, Commission, FHFA, and HUD (the Agencies) are proposing rules to implement the credit risk retention requirements of section 15G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78o-11), as added by section 941 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Section 15G generally requires the securitizer of asset-backed securities to retain not less than five percent of the credit risk of the assets collateralizing the asset-backed securities.




          HUD                                                                                                                                           This final rule sets forth the minimum standards for the state licensing and registration of residential mortgage loan originators, requirements for operating the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLSR), and HUD's Federal oversight responsibilities pursuant to the Secure and Fair Enforcement Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act or Act), to ensure proper monitoring and enforcement of states' compliance with statutory requirements. This 2008 law directs states to adopt loan originator licensing and registration requirements that meet the minimum standards specified in the SAFE Act.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               70
 Industry and Security                                             This change is being made pursuant to a determination by BIS that, because there are no regulatory restrictions on making such software “publicly available,” and because, once it is “publicly available,” by definition it is available for download by any end user without restriction, removing it from the jurisdiction of the EAR will have no effect on export control policy.

This is the first in a series of rules implementing the President's and Prime Minister's commitment to work together to strengthen the global nonproliferation and export control framework and further transform our bilateral export control cooperation to realize the full potential of the strategic partnership between the two countries.

      Mine Safety                                                                                       The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is proposing to revise the Agency's existing regulation for pattern of violations (POV). MSHA has determined that the existing regulation does not adequately achieve the intent of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act) that the POV provision be used to address operators who have demonstrated a disregard for the safety and health of miners. Congress included the POV provision in the Mine Act so that operators would manage safety and health conditions at mines and find and fix the root causes of significant and substantial (S&S) violations to protect the safety and health of miners.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                4.2
      Mine Safety                                                                                                                                                          The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is requesting comments on the proposed rule published in the Federal Register on October 19, 2010, addressing Lowering Miners' Exposure to Respirable Coal Mine Dust, Including Continuous Personal Dust Monitors. The proposed rule would improve health protections for coal miners by reducing their occupational exposure to respirable coal mine dust and lowering the risk that they will suffer material impairment of health or functional capacity over their working lives.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      93.2
     Mine Safety                                                                                   This final rule replaces the Mine Safety and H ealth Adminis tration's Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) purs uant to s ection 101(b) of the Federal Mine Safety and H ealth Act of 1977. The final rule adopts the requirements contained in the ETS. U nder the final rule, mine operators mus t maintain the incombus tible content of combined coal dus t, rock dus t, and other dus t to at leas t 80 percent in underground areas of bituminous coal mines . The final rule further requires that the incombus tible content of s uch combined dus t be increas ed 0.4 percent for each 0.1 percent of methane pres ent.Show citation boxAccumulations of coal dus t can ignite, res ulting in an explos ion, or after an explos ion, they can intens ify flame propagation, increas ing the s everity of explos ions . The final rule, like the ETS, reduces both the potential for a coal mine explos ion and the s everity of explos ions s hould they occur.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   26.3
        NCUA                                  NCUA is proposing rules to implement certain statutory provisions in Title IX of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Dodd-Frank Act). The proposed rules replace or remove references to credit ratings in NCUA regulations.




        NCUA                                                                                                                                      Section 343 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act)1 provides that, on a temporary basis, NCUA shall fully insure the net amount that any member or depositor at an insured credit union maintains in a noninterest-bearing transaction account. Although this insurance coverage is self-implementing, and therefore already in place, this final rule: Clarifies the definition of the term “noninterest-bearing transaction account;” provides that this new insurance coverage is separate from, and in addition to, other coverage provided in NCUA's share insurance rules; and imposes certain notice and disclosure requirements.




         NRC              The NRC previously proposed new regulations on October 26, 2006 (71 FR 62663), that would have implemented this new authority as part of a larger proposed rule entitled “Power Reactor Security Requirements.” However, based upon changes to the final Firearms Guidelines the NRC is now proposing further revisions in these implementing regulations that address the voluntary application for enhanced weapons and the mandatory firearms background checks under section 161A. These implementing regulations would only apply to nuclear power reactor facilities and Category I strategic special nuclear material (SSNM) facilities.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     70.2

The proposed amendment would require applicants and licensees who possess or plan to possess significant amounts of UF6 to conduct an ISA and submit an ISA summary to the NRC.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 0.119

        NOAA                                                 This final action implements identification and certification procedures to address illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities and bycatch of protected living marine resources (PLMRs) pursuant to the High Seas Driftnet Fishing Moratorium Protection Act (Moratorium Protection Act). The objectives of these procedures are to promote the sustainability of transboundary and shared fishery stocks and to enhance the conservation and recovery of PLMRs.

We identified disturbance and sound associated with vessels as a potential contributing factor in the recent decline of this population during the development of the final rule announcing the endangered listing of Southern Resident killer whales and the associated Recovery Plan for Southern Resident killer whales (Recovery Plan).




        NOAA                                     The N ational Marine Fis heries Service (N MFS) propos es to require replacement of currently required Mobile Trans mitting U nit (MTU ) Ves s el Monitoring Sys tem (VMS) units with Enhanced Mobile Trans mitting U nit (E-MTU ) VMS units in Atlantic H MS fis heries ; implement a declaration s ys tem that requires ves s els to declare target fis hery and gear type(s ) pos s es s ed on board; and require that a qualified marine electrician ins tall all E-MTU VMS units . This propos ed rulemaking would remove dated MTU VMS units from s ervice in Atlantic H MS fis heries , make Atlantic H MS VMS requirements cons is tent with other VMS-monitored Atlantic fis heries , provide the N ational Marine Fis heries Service Office of Law Enforcement (N MFS Enforcement) with enhanced communication with H MS ves s els at s ea. This rule would affect all H MS pelagic longline (PLL), bottom longline (BLL), and s hark gillnet fis hermen who are currently required to have VMS onboard their ves s els .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          1.2

The proposed rule, therefore, is designed to relieve federal employees with same-sex domestic partners from the evidentiary requirements in existing regulations for persons outside this class. Additionally, OPM is taking this step to recognize that individuals with same-sex domestic partners have the same presumption of an insurable interest in the continued life of employees or Members as the class of persons listed in the existing rule.

        OSHA                         The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is adjusting the approach it uses for calculating the fees the Agency charges Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs), and also is requiring prepayment of these fees. This adjustment increases the fees; OSHA is phasing in the fee increase over three years for existing NRTLs and pending NRTL applicants. OSHA began charging NRTLs fees in 2000, and revised the fee schedule only twice since then (in 2002 and 2007).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      0.513

This is a proposed rule to amend PBGC's regulation on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans. That regulation sets forth rules on PBGC's guarantee of pension plan benefits, including rules on the phase-in of the guarantee. The amendments implement section 403 of the Pension Protection Act of 2006, which provides that the phase-in period for the guarantee of benefits that are contingent upon the occurrence of an “unpredictable contingent event,” such as a plant shutdown, starts no earlier than the date of the shutdown or other unpredictable contingent event.

The intent of this rulemaking is to reduce highway-rail grade crossing crashes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          0.279

Since the Broadband Loan Program's inception in 2002, the Agency has faced and continues to face s ignificant challenges in delivering the program due to the following factors : The competitive nature of the broadband market in certain geographic areas ; the s ignificant number of companies propos ing to offer broadband s ervice that are s tart-up organiz ations with limited res ources ; continually evolving technology; and economic factors s uch as the higher cos t of s erving rural communities .

The new definitions are being established to facilitate implementation of a provision of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (Energy Act), which allows an SBIC making an “energy saving qualified investment” to obtain SBA leverage by issuing a deferred interest “energy saving debenture”.

Intermediaries will then use the ILP loan funds to make loans of up to $200,000 to startup, newly established, or growing small business concerns.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             6.1

We are proposing to permit suspension of the reporting obligations for asset-backed securities issuers when there are no longer asset-backed securities of the class sold in a registered transaction held by non-affiliates of the depositor.

In s atis faction of this requirement, the Commis s ion is adopting new Rules of Practice to formaliz e the proces s it will us e when conducting proceedings to determine whether an SRO's propos ed rule change s hould be dis approved under Section 19(b)(2) of the Exchange Act. The new rules are intended to add trans parency to the Commis s ion's conduct of thos e proceedings and addres s the proces s the Commis s ion will follow to ins titute proceedings and provide notice of the grounds for dis approval under cons ideration as well as provide interes ted parties with an opportunity to s ubmit written materials to the Commis s ion.

We are adopting a new rule under the Securities Act of 1933 to require any issuer registering the offer and sale of an asset-backed security (“ABS”) to perform a review of the assets underlying the ABS. We also are adopting amendments to Item 1111 of Regulation AB that would require an ABS issuer to disclose the nature of its review of the assets and the findings and conclusions of the issuer's review of the assets.

The final rules require securitizers of asset-backed securities to disclose fulfilled and unfulfilled repurchase requests. Our rules also require nationally recognized statistical rating organizations to include information regarding the representations, warranties and enforcement mechanisms available to investors in an asset-backed securities offering in any report accompanying a credit rating issued in connection with such offering, including a preliminary credit rating.

Section 413(a) requires the definitions of “accredited investor” in our Securities Act rules to exclude the value of a person's primary residence for purposes of determining whether the person qualifies as an “accredited investor” on the basis of having a net worth in excess of $1 million. This change to the net worth standard was effective upon enactment by operation of the Dodd-Frank statute, but Section 413(a) also requires us to revise our current Securities Act rules to reflect the new standard.

Section 951 of the Dodd-Frank Act amends the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by adding Section 14A, which requires companies to conduct a separate shareholder advisory vote to approve the compensation of executives, as disclosed pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S-K or any successor to Item 402.

In this release, pursuant to the provisions of Section 939A of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, we propose to replace rule and form requirements under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 for securities offering or issuer disclosure rules that rely on, or make special accommodations for, security ratings (for example, Forms S-3 and F-3 eligibility criteria) with alternative requirements.

        SEC                     The Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission” or “SEC”) intends to issue an order that would adjust two dollar amount tests in the rule under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 that permits investment advisers to charge performance based compensation to “qualified clients.” The adjustments would revise the dollar amount tests to account for the effects of inflation. The Commission is also proposing to amend the rule to: provide that the Commission will issue an order every five years adjusting for inflation the dollar amount tests; exclude the value of a person's primary residence from the test of whether a person has sufficient net worth to be considered a “qualified client;” and add certain transition provisions to the rule.

Section 926 requires us to adopt rules that disqualify securities offerings involving certain “felons and other `bad actors'” from reliance on the safe harbor from Securities Act registration provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D. The rules must be “substantially similar” to Rule 262, the disqualification provisions of Regulation A under the Securities Act, and must also cover matters enumerated in Section 926 (including certain state regulatory orders and bars).

The amendments clarify existing policies and implement new procedures to ensure that the Summer Work Travel program continues to foster the objectives of the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 (Fulbright-Hays Act).

Specifically, changes are made to requirements related to maximum interest rates on modified loans and to items that may be capitalized in a modified loan amount. In addition, we are revising the regulation to clarify that the holder of a loan may seek VA approval for a loan modification that does not otherwise meet prescribed conditions.




 Veterans Affairs                          These revisions are proposed as part of VA's rewrite and reorganization of all of its compensation and pension rules in a logical, claimant-focused, and user-friendly format. The intended effect of the proposed revisions is to assist claimants, beneficiaries, and VA personnel in locating and understanding these regulations.




 Veterans Affairs                                            This law requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to verify ownership and control of veteran-owned small businesses, including service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses. This final rule rescinds the requirement that eligible owners work full-time in the business for which they have applied for acceptance in the Verification Program and that limits participants to a single business.

The rule establishes procedures that financial institutions must follow when they receive a garnishment order against an account holder who receives certain types of Federal benefit payments by direct deposit. The rule requires financial institutions that receive such a garnishment order to determine the sum of such Federal benefit payments deposited to the account during a two month period, and to ensure that the account holder has access to an amount equal to that sum or to the current balance of the account, whichever is lower.

The cost of those mandates would exceed the threshold established in UMRA for private-sector mandates ($142 million in 2011, adjusted annually for inflation) in four of the first five years in which the mandates were effective, rising to $1.4 billion per year in 2016, and totaling $3.3 billion over the 2012-2016 period.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              3,300    X
   Mica, John                                                                                                                                                                            The bill would impose additi onal private-sector mandates on operators of certain aircraft, enti ti es registering or obtaining certi fi cati on with the FAA, commercial air carriers, employees in air or rail industries, and unions. Based on informati on from the FAA, the Nati onal Mediati on Board, and industry sources, CBO esti mates that the aggregate cost of complying with the private-sector mandates would exceed the annual threshold established in UMRA ($142 million in 2011, adjusted annually for infl ati on).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   142     X
  Akaka, Daniel                      S. 676 would amend the Indian Reorganizati on Act to allow the Secretary of the Interior to take land into trust for all federally recognized Indian tribes. Based on informati on from the Department of the Interior (DOI), CBO esti mates that implementi ng the legislati on would have no signifi cant cost. Enacti ng S. 676 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

                                Based on information provided by JCT, the cost of the 
ill’s private-sector mandate would exceed the annual threshold established in UMRA for 
rivate-sector mandates ($142 million in 2011, adjusted annually for inflation) in each of 
he first five years the mandate is in effect.

   Upton, Fred                                                                                                H.R. 910 contains an intergovernmental mandate as defi ned in UMRA because it would expand an existi ng preempti on of state laws that regulate GHGs from motor vehicles. Under current law, California may obtain a waiver from EPA to establish its own standard for GHGs from motor vehicles. Once EPA has approved the waiver, other states may adopt the California standard. The bill would prevent EPA from approving such waivers, thus expanding the preempti on. Although the preempti on would limit the applicati on of state law, CBO esti mates that it would impose no duty on state governments that would result in additi onal spending.

wards patents. Among other things, the bill would alter the rule that prioriti zes the award 
f a patent from the “fi rst to invent” to the “fi rst inventor to fi le.” As a result, PTO would 
hange certain procedures it follows in awarding patents. The bill also would establish new

The bill also would preempt the authority of state courts to hear certain patent cases. Based on informati on from PTO, CBO esti mates that the costs of complying with those mandates would exceed the annual threshold for private-sector mandates established in UMRA ($142 million in 2011, adjusted annually for infl ati on) in each of the fi rst fi ve years the mandate is in effect.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          142   X
    Kohl, Herb                                             S. 49 would impose a private-sector mandate, as defi ned in the Unfunded Mandates 
 eform Act (UMRA), by eliminati ng railroads’ exempti ons from certain anti trust laws. It 
 unclear how making railroads subject to the standards of those anti trust statues would 
ffect current business practi ces, if at all. The extent to which railroad carriers would 
 ave to forgo business opportuniti es and the value of those lost opportuniti es are also 
 ncertain. Because of those uncertainti es, CBO has no basis for esti mati ng the costs to 
ailroad carriers or whether those costs would exceed the annual threshold established in 
 MRA for private-sector mandates ($142 million in 2011, adjusted annually for 
 ati on).
