On July 13, 2015, the FDIC published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register proposing to amend 12 CFR part 327 to refine the deposit insurance assessment system for small insured depository institutions that have been federally insured for at least 5 years (established small banks). In response to comments received regarding the notice, the FDIC is issuing this revised notice of proposed rulemaking (revised NPR or revised proposal) that would: Use a brokered deposit ratio (that treats reciprocal deposits the same as under current regulations) as a measure in the financial ratios method for calculating assessment rates for established small banks instead of the previously proposed core deposit ratio; remove the existing brokered deposit adjustment for established small banks; and revise the previously proposed one-year asset growth measure. The FDIC proposes that a final rule would take effect the quarter after the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) reserve ratio has reached 1.15 percent (or the first quarter after a final rule is adopted that the rule can take effect, whichever is later).

In this document, the Commission adopts additional rules under the authority of Sections 204 and 205 of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA), which mandate the accessibility of user interfaces on digital apparatus and navigation devices used to view video programming. First, the document adopts usability requirements for entities covered by Section 204 of the CVAA and information, documentation, and training requirements for entities covered by both Section 204 and Section 205 of the CVAA. The document also adopts rules that will require manufacturers of digital apparatus and navigation devices to publicize the availability of accessible devices on manufacturer Web sites that must be accessible to those with disabilities. These requirements will ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to information and documentation about the availability of accessible video devices and how to operate them. The document declines to adopt a requirement that multichannel video programming providers include more detailed program information for public, educational, and governmental channels in their video programming guides, finding that such a requirement is outside the scope of Section 205 of the CVAA. Finally, the document reconsiders guidance on which activation mechanisms for closed captioning are reasonably comparable to a button, key, or icon.

We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2004-20-14, for all Airbus Model A300 B4-2C, B4-103, and B4-203 airplanes; and all Airbus Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R series airplanes. AD 2004-20-14 required repetitive inspections to detect cracking of the splice fitting at fuselage frame (FR) 47 between stringers 24 and 26 (left- and right-hand sides), and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD reduces the inspection compliance time and repetitive inspection intervals, and adds Airbus Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes to the applicability. This AD was prompted by a determination that the inspection compliance time and repetitive inspection interval must be reduced to allow timely detection of cracks in the splice fitting at fuselage FR 47. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking of the splice fitting at fuselage FR 47; such cracking could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.

This call for proposals (``Call'') invites experienced early stage fund managers to submit the preliminary materials discussed in Section II below, in the form of the Small Business Investment Company (``SBIC'') Management Assessment Questionnaire (``MAQ''), for consideration by the Small Business Administration (``SBA'') to be licensed as Early Stage Small Business Investment Companies. Licensed Early Stage SBICs may receive SBA-guaranteed debenture leverage of up to 100 percent of their Regulatory Capital, up to a maximum of $50 million. However, Early Stage SBICs may, and most existing Early Stage SBICs do, request less than 100 percent of their Regulatory Capital. Importantly, Early Stage SBICs must invest at least 50% of their investment dollars in early stage small businesses. For the purposes of this initiative, an ``early stage'' business is one that has never achieved positive cash flow from operations in any fiscal year. By licensing and providing SBA guaranteed leverage to Early Stage SBICs, SBA seeks to expand entrepreneurs' access to capital and encourage innovation as part of President Obama's Start-Up America Initiative launched on January 31, 2011. More information on the Early Stage SBIC Initiative and the regulations governing these SBICs may be found at www.sba.gov/inv/earlystage.

Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), agencies are required to publish a Notice in the Federal Register notifying the public that the agency is modifying an existing information collection for OMB review and approval and requests public review and comment on the submission. Comments are being solicited on the need for the information; the accuracy of OPIC's burden estimate; the quality, practical utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize reporting the burden, including automated collection techniques and uses of other forms of technology. The proposed change to OPIC-162 clarifies existing questions, incorporates sector-specific development impact questions and eliminates ineffective questions in an effort to harmonize development impact indicators with other Development Finance Institutions (``DFIs''). OPIC is a signatory to a ``Memorandum of Understanding'' with 25 partnering DFIs to harmonize development impact metrics where possible. The goal of this effort is to reduce the reporting burden on clients that receive financing from multiple DFIs and to instill best practices in the collection and the reporting on OPIC's developmental impacts. To minimize the reporting burden on respondents, OPIC has designed OPIC-162 as an electronic form with questions populating only if they relate to a project.
