Federal Register Highlights – 3/4/15

March 4, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for March 4, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the draw of the Seaboard System Railroad (CSX Railroad) Bridge, across Appomattox River, mile 2.5, Hopewell, VA. This deviation is necessary to conduct bridge upgrades. This temporary deviation allows the swing bridge to remain in the closed to navigation position to facilitate bridge upgrades. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on March 7, 2015 to 8 p.m. on March 8, 2015.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211 Trent 875–17, 877–17, 884–17, 884B–17, 892–17, 892B–17, and 895–17 turbofan engines. This AD requires modification of the engine by installing upgraded software in the electronic engine  control (EEC) or by removing any EEC that incorporates a software standard prior to B7.2 and installing an EEC eligible for installation. This AD was prompted by failure of the intermediate pressure (IP) turbine disk drive arm and subsequent overspeed and burst of the IP turbine disk on an RR RB211 Trent turbofan engine. We are issuing this AD to prevent overspeed of the IP turbine disk, resulting in failure of the turbine blades or the IP turbine disk and subsequent uncontained release of the turbine disk and/or blades, which could lead to damage to the engine and damage to the airplane. This AD becomes effective April 8, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: In this document, the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) seeks comment on its proposal to permit broadcasters to use modern digital technologies for Remote Pickup operations. Permitting this would further the Commission’s goal of enabling broadcasters to use the same  digital technologies for Remote Pickup operations as used by operators in the Private Land Mobile Radio Service. Submit comments on or before April 3, 2015. (To submit comments, visit Click here to be taken directly to the commenting page.)

PROPOSED RULE: This document contains proposed regulations under section 6041 regarding the filing of information returns to report  winnings from bingo, keno, and slot machine play. The proposed regulations affect persons who pay winnings of $1,200 or more from bingo and slot machine play, $1,500 or more from keno, and recipients of such payments. This document also provides a notice of a public hearing on these proposed regulations. Written or electronic comments must be received by June 2, 2015.
