Federal Register Highlights – 5/23/16

May 23, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 23, 2016:

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE- FALCON 900 airplanes, FALCON 900EX airplanes, and FALCON 2000EX airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that during a test flight, it was found that the yaw damper on the takeoff roll can increase the Minimum Control Speed on Ground (Vmcg). This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to incorporate procedures for the flightcrew to check that the yaw damper is set to “off” before takeoff. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the flightcrew has procedures to set the yaw damper to “off” before takeoff, which, if activated, could result in reduced control of the airplane if one engine were to fail during takeoff. This AD is effective June 27, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is proposing to remove the copy of the Financial Assistance/Subsidy Arrangement and the summary of the Financial Control Plan from the appendices of its National Flood Insurance Program regulations, as it is no longer necessary or appropriate to retain a contract, agreement, or any other arrangement between FEMA and private insurance companies in the Code of Federal Regulations. Comments are due on or before July 22, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket ID: FEMA–2016–0012.)

PROPOSED RULE: NMFS proposes management measures for the 2016 summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass recreational fisheries. NMFS is also proposing a change to the commercial scup incidental possession limit, and two minor corrections to the summer flounder minimum mesh size regulations. The implementing regulations for these fisheries require NMFS to publish recreational measures for the fishing year and to provide an opportunity for public comment. The intent of these measures is to constrain recreational catch to established limits and prevent overfishing of the summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass resources. The intent of the commercial scup regulatory change is to reduce unnecessary discards by allowing more incidentally caught scup to be retained by vessels. The regulatory corrections are intended to clarify the original purpose of the regulation. Comments must be received by 5 p.m. local time, on June 7, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket No. NOAA–NMFS–2016–0029.)
