Federal Register Highlights – 10/29/13

October 29, 2013

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for October 29, 2013:

RULE: We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2012–24–09 for Lycoming Engines TIO–540–AK1A, and Continental Motors, Inc. (CMI) TSIO–360–MB, TSIO–360–SB, and TSIO–360–RB reciprocating engines, with certain Hartzell Engine Technologies (HET) turbochargers, model TA0411, installed. AD 2012–24–09 required removing certain HET turbochargers from service before further flight. This AD also requires removing certain HET turbochargers from service before further flight. This AD was prompted by a report that an additional engine, the CMI LTSIO–360–RB, has the affected HET turbochargers installed. We are issuing this AD to prevent turbocharger turbine wheel failure, reduction or complete loss of engine power, loss of engine oil, oil fire, and damage to the airplane. This AD is effective November 13, 2013.

PROPOSED RULE: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, propose to designate critical habitat for Diplacus vandenbergensis (Vandenberg monkeyflower) under the Endangered Species Act. If we finalize this rule as proposed, it would extend the Act’s protections to this species’ critical habitat. The effect of this regulation is to conserve Vandenberg monkeyflower’s habitat under the Endangered Species Act. We will accept comments received or postmarked on or before December 30, 2013. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number FWS–R8–ES–2013–0049.)

PROPOSED RULE: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, propose to list Vandenberg monkeyflower as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act. If we finalize this rule as proposed, it would extend the Endangered Species Act’s protections to this plant. The effect of this regulation will be to add Vandenberg monkeyflower to the List of Endangered and Threatened Plants under the Endangered Species Act. We will accept all comments received or postmarked on or before December 30, 2013. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number FWS–R8–ES–2013–0078.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing regulations for domestic and foreign facilities that are required to register under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) to establish requirements for current good manufacturing practice in manufacturing, processing, packing, and holding of animal food. FDA also is proposing regulations to require that certain facilities establish and implement hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for food for animals. FDA is taking this action to provide greater assurance that animal food is safe and will not cause illness or injury to animals or humans and is intended to build an animal food safety system for the future that makes modern, science and risk-based preventive controls the norm across all sectors of the animal food system. Submit either electronic or written comments on the proposed rule by February 26, 2014. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number FDA–2011–N–0922.)

PROPOSED RULE: NASA is proposing to amend the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) to incorporate a proposal adequacy checklist for proposals in response to solicitations that require the submission of certified cost or pricing data. Interested parties should submit comments to NASA on or before December 30, 2013 to be considered in formulation of the final rule. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference RIN 2700–AE13.)

PROPOSED RULE: This rule proposes procedures for the disposition of unclaimed human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, or objects of cultural patrimony discovered on Federal lands after November 16, 1990. It would implement section 3 (b) of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990. Comments must be received by December 30, 2013. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference RIN 1024–AE00.)
