Federal Register Highlights – 5/18/15

May 18, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 18, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is issuing a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) Railroad Bridge across the New River, mile 2.5, at Fort Lauderdale, FL. This deviation will test a change to the drawbridge operation schedule to address the inability of the bridge owner, FEC, to operate the bridge under current regulations. This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. on May 18, 2015 through 6 a.m. on October 16, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the upper deck of the Steel Bridge, mile 12.1, and the Burnside Bridge, mile 12.4, both crossing the Willamette River, at Portland, OR. The deviation is necessary to accommodate the route of the annual Rose Festival Parade event, which crosses the Steel Bridge and Burnside Bridge. This deviation allows the upper deck of the Steel Bridge and Burnside Bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position and need not open for marine traffic to allow for the safe movement of event participants and cleanup crew. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 6, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The Secretary proposes to amend the cash management regulations under subpart K and other sections of the Student Assistance General Provisions regulations issued under the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). These proposed regulations are intended to ensure that students have convenient access to their title IV, HEA program funds, do not incur unreasonable and uncommon financial account fees on their title IV funds, and are not led to believe they must open a particular financial account to receive their Federal student aid. In addition, these proposed regulations update other provisions in the cash management regulations under subpart K and otherwise amend the Student Assistance General Provisions. We also propose to clarify how previously passed coursework is treated for title IV eligibility purposes and streamline the requirements for converting clock hours to credit hours. We must receive your comments on or before July 2, 2015. (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number ED–2015–OPE–0020. Commenting page was not available at the time of this posting.)

RULE: We are publishing a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Enstrom Helicopter Corporation (Enstrom) Model F–28A, 280, F–28C, F–28C–2, F–28C–2R, 280C, F–28F, F–28F–R, 280F, 280FX, and 480 helicopters. This AD was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of these helicopters and supersedes Emergency AD (EAD) 2015–04–51, dated February 12, 2015. This AD requires inspecting certain main rotor spindles (spindles) for cracks and reporting the inspection results to the FAA. This AD is prompted by a fatal accident and reports of spindles with cracks. The actions specified in this AD are intended to detect a crack in a spindle and prevent loss of a main rotor blade and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. This AD becomes effective June 2, 2015 to all persons except those persons to whom it was made immediately effective by EAD 2015–08–51, issued on April 10, 2015, which contains the requirements of this AD.
