Federal Register Highlights – 10/24/14

October 24, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for October 24, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the navigable waters of South San Francisco Bay in support of the Semisubmersible Loading Operation taking place between October 14 and 23, 2014 for a 24-hour period. This safety zone is established to ensure the  safety of workers, mariners, and other vessels transiting the area from the dangers associated with the loading operations. Unauthorized persons or  vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining in the safety zone without permission of the Captain of the Port or their  designated representative. This rule is effective without actual notice from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on October 24, 2014. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from October 14, 2014, until October 24, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Fiberglas-Technik Rudolf Lindner GmbH & Co. KG (type certificates formerly held by GROB–WERKE GMBH & CO KG and BURKHART GROB LUFTUND RAUMFAHRT GmbH & CO KG) Models G102 STANDARD ASTIR III, G102 CLUB  ASTIR III, G102 CLUB ASTIR IIIb, G103 TWIN II, G103A TWIN II ACRO, G103C TWIN III ACRO, and G 103 C Twin III SL gliders. This AD revises AD 2014–15–02, which required inspection of the rudder control unit for installation of plastic cable pulleys and replacement of plastic cable pulleys with  aluminum cable pulleys. This AD retains the actions of AD 2014–15–02 but clarifies the suffixes of serial numbers (S/Ns) in paragraph (c) Applicability. This AD was prompted by reports of plastic control cable pulleys developing cracks due to aging, which could lead to breaking of the pulley and potentially jamming the rudder control unit, possibly resulting in loss of control. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products. This final rule is effective October 24, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (‘‘FDIC’’) is proposing a rule with request for comments that would implement section  210(a)(16)(D) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). This statutory provision requires the promulgation of a regulation establishing schedules for the retention by the FDIC of the records of a covered financial company (i.e., a financial company for which the FDIC has been appointed receiver pursuant to title II of the Dodd-Frank Act) as well as the records generated by the FDIC in the exercise of its title II  orderly liquidation authority (title II) with respect to such covered financial company. Written comments on the proposed rule must be received by the FDIC no later than December 23, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is proposing to amend our regulations. Part 340 implements section 11(p) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act. Under section 11(p), individuals or entities whose acts or omissions have, or may have, contributed to the failure of an insured depository institution cannot buy the assets of that failed insured depository institution from the FDIC. The proposed revisions to part 340 will help to clarify its purpose, scope and applicability, and will make it more consistent in our regulations, the parallel provision in the FDIC’s Orderly Liquidation Authority regulations that implements section 210(r) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act by placing  restrictions on sales of assets of a covered financial company by the FDIC. Sections of part 340 became effective on July 1, 2014. Written comments must be received by the FDIC not later than December 23, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is reallocating projected unused amounts of the 2014 halibut prohibited species catch (PSC) allowance from the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands trawl (BSAI) limited access sector to the Amendment 80 cooperatives in the BSAI management area. This action is necessary to  allow the Amendment 80 cooperatives to fully harvest their 2014 groundfish allocations. Effective October 21, 2014, through 2400 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), December 31, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: Because the 2014 catch limit of 500 metric tons is expected to be reached, NMFS is closing the U.S. pelagic longline fishery for  bigeye tuna for vessels over 24 meters in overall length in the eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO) through December 31, 2014. This action is necessary to prevent the fishery from exceeding the applicable catch limit established by the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) in Resolution C–13–01,  which governs tuna conservation in the EPO from 2014–2016. Effective October 31, 2014, through December 31, 2014.
