Federal Register Highlights – 8/18/15

August 18, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 18, 2015:

PROPOSED RULE: This proposed rule would implement a recommendation from the California Walnut Board (Board) to increase the assessment rate established for the 2015–16 and subsequent marketing years from $0.0189 to $0.0379 per kernelweight pound of assessable walnuts. The Board locally administers the marketing order and is comprised of growers and handlers of walnuts operating within the area of production. Assessments upon walnut handlers are used by the Board to fund reasonable and necessary expenses of the program. The marketing year begins September 1 and ends August 31. The assessment rate would remain in effect indefinitely unless modified, suspended, or terminated. Comments must be received by September 17, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number AMS-FV-15-0026.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities Assistance Act of 1978, as amended (TCCUA), authorizes Federal assistance to institutions of higher education that are formally controlled or have been formally sanctioned or chartered by the governing body of an Indian tribe or tribes. Passed at the same time as the TCCUA, the Navajo Community College Assistance Act of 1978, as amended (NCCA) authorizes Federal assistance to the Navajo Nation in construction, maintenance, and operation of Diné College. This proposed rule would update the TCCUA’s implementing regulations in light of amendments to the TCCUA in 1983, 1986, 1998 and 2008 and the NCCA’s implementing regulations in light of amendments to the NCCA in 2008. Please submit written comments by October 19, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number BIA-2011-0002.)
