June 24, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for June 24, 2016:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation on the waters of the Beaufort River, Beaufort, South Carolina, during the Beaufort Water Festival on July 23, 2016. This special local regulation is necessary to ensure safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the Beaufort Water Festival Air Show. This regulation prohibits persons and vessels from being in the regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Charleston or a designated representative. This rule is effective on July 23, 2016 from noon through 5:00 p.m.

PROPOSED RULE: The U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE” or the “Department”) is proposing to revise its certification, compliance, and enforcement regulations for electric motors and small electric motors to conform to the enforcement regulations for all other covered products and equipment and to consolidate, to the extent possible, the certification and compliance regulations for electric motors and small electric motors with those for other types of covered products and equipment. In addition to bringing the certification, compliance, and enforcement regulations for electric motors and small electric motors under the umbrella and general regulatory scheme of DOE’s existing certification, compliance, and enforcement regulations for other equipment and products, this proposal provides specific sampling plans, certification of efficiency requirements, independent testing laboratory and certification program requirements, and labeling requirements for electric motors and small electric motors. DOE will accept comments, data, and information regarding this NOPR no later than July 25, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. EERE–2014–BT–CE–0019.)

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General Electric Company (GE) GE90– 76B, GE90–77B, GE90–85B, GE90–90B, and GE90–94B turbofan engines. This AD was prompted by an uncontained failure of the high-pressure compressor (HPC) stage 8–10 spool, leading to an airplane fire. This AD requires eddy current inspection (ECI) or ultrasonic inspection (USI) of the HPC stage 8–10 spool and removing from service those parts that fail inspection. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the HPC stage 8–10 spool, uncontained rotor release, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane. This AD is effective July 29, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making filed by Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, proposing to amend the FM Table of Allotments, section 73.202(b) of the Commission’s Rules, by allotting Channel 228C1 at Eagle Butte, South Dakota, as the first local Tribal-owned service. A staff engineering analysis indicates that Channel 228C1 can be allotted to Eagle Butte consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission’s rules with no site restriction. The reference coordinates are 45–01–32 NL and 101– 14–22 WL. Comments must be filed on or before August 8, 2016, and reply comments on or before August 23, 2016. (Submit comments in writing to: Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner as follows: Harold Frazier, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, P.O. Box 1683, Eagle Butte, SD 57625.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is exchanging unused flathead sole and yellowfin sole Community Development Quota (CDQ) for rock sole CDQ acceptable biological catch (ABC) reserves in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area. This action is necessary to allow the 2016 total allowable catch of rock sole in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area to be harvested. Effective June 24, 2016 through December 31, 2016.
