Federal Register Highlights – 10/13/16

October 17, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for October 13, 2016:

RULE: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010–23– 19 for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, and 702) airplanes, Model CL–600– 2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, and Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. AD 2010–23–19 required repetitive inspections for damage of the main landing gear (MLG) inboard doors and fairing, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD requires repetitive inspections for damage of the MLG inboard doors, MLG fairing, and adjacent structures of the MLG inboard doors, and corrective actions if necessary; replacement of the MLG fairing seal; and a terminating action involving increasing the clearances between the MLG fairing and MLG door. This new AD also adds one airplane and removes others from the applicability. This AD was prompted by reports of the MLG failing to fully extend. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of controllability of the airplane during landing. This AD is effective November 17, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: This document contains proposed amendments to the regulations that provide user fees for offers in compromise. The proposed amendments affect taxpayers who wish to pay their liabilities through offers in compromise. The proposed effective date for these proposed amendments to the regulations is for offers in compromise submitted on or after February 27, 2017. This document also provides a notice of public hearing on these proposed amendments to the regulations. Written or electronic comments must be received by November 28, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference IRS–REG–108934–16.)

PROPOSED RULE: NMFS is proposing regulations under the authority of Section 303(b) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) to implement an immediate closure of the California thresher shark/swordfish drift gillnet (DGN) (mesh size ≥14 inches) fishery if a hard cap (i.e., limit) on mortality/injury is met or exceeded for certain protected species during a rolling 2-year period. The length of the closure would be dependent on when—during the 2-year period—the hard cap is reached. Comments on the proposed rule and supporting documents must be submitted in writing by November 28, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. NOAA–NMFS–2016–0123.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC” or “Commission”) proposes to amend the definition of “covered clearing agency” under Rule 17Ad–22 to mean a registered clearing agency that provides the services of a central counterparty (“CCP”), central securities depository (“CSD”), or a securities settlement system (“SSS”). The Commission also proposes a definition of “securities settlement system” and proposes to amend the definitions of “central securities depository services” to facilitate the proposed amendment to “covered clearing agency.” In addition, the Commission proposes to amend the definition of “sensitivity analysis” under Rule 17Ad–22 to expand the scope of covered clearing agencies subject to requirements thereunder. These amendments are proposed pursuant to Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) and the Payment, Clearing, and Settlement Supervision Act of 2010 (“Clearing Supervision Act”), enacted in Title VIII of the Dodd- Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (“Dodd-Frank Act”). DATES: Submit comments on or before December 12, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference File No. S7–23–16.)
