Federal Register Highlights – 7/7/16

July 7, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for July 7, 2016:

RULE: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008–15–06 for certain Textron Aviation Inc. Models 175 and 175A airplanes (type certificate previously held by Cessna Aircraft Company). AD 2008–15–06 required checking the airplane logbook to determine if the original engine mounting brackets had been replaced. If the original engine mounting brackets were still installed, the AD required repetitively inspecting those brackets for cracks and replacing any cracked engine mounting bracket until all four original engine mounting brackets were replaced. Replacing all four original engine mounting brackets terminated the actions required in AD 2008–15–06. Since we issued AD 2008–15–06, we have determined that the applicability needs to be changed to add one serial number and remove another. This new AD retains the actions required in AD 2008–15–06 and changes the Applicability section. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective August 11, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: NMFS is proposing regulations to modify observer coverage requirements for catcher vessels participating in the trawl limited access fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI). If approved, this proposed rule would allow the owner of a trawl catcher vessel to request, on an annual basis, that NMFS place the vessel in the full observer coverage category for all directed fishing for groundfish using trawl gear in the BSAI in the following calendar year. This action is necessary to relieve vessel owners who request full observer coverage of the reporting requirements and observer fee liability associated with the partial observer coverage category. In addition, this proposed rule makes minor technical corrections to observer program regulations. This proposed rule is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI FMP), and other applicable laws. Submit comments on or before August 8, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. NOAA–NMFS–2016–0020.)
