Proposed Amendment to Restricted Area 2211 Blair Lakes; AK
Document Number: 05-5965
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-03-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to raise the ceiling of Restricted Area 2211 (R-2211), Blair Lakes, AK, from the current 18,000 feet above mean sea level (MSL) to Flight Level (FL) 310. The expanded airspace is required to fulfill United States Air Force (USAF) training requirements. The current restricted airspace at Blair Lakes is too small to allow aircrew training in high altitude weapons delivery tactics. Specifically, the training requirements call for practicing the release of weapons from higher altitudes than are currently available within the existing restricted airspace.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Child Restraint Systems
Document Number: 05-5962
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-03-28
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document responds to petitions for reconsideration of a June 24, 2003 final rule that incorporated improved test dummies and updated procedures into Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213 and extended the standard to child restraints recommended for use by children weighing up to 30 kilograms (65 pounds). That final rule responded to Section 14 of the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation Act of 2000. NHTSA received petitions for reconsideration of different aspects of the final rule from Ford and from Denton ATD. This document denies Ford's petition and grants Denton's.
Repair Stations
Document Number: 05-5856
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-03-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is delaying the effective date of the final rule requiring each repair station to have an approved training program. This action is necessary because applicable guidance material is not yet available to assist repair stations in developing their programs. The delayed date will give repair stations sufficient time to develop their programs and will give the FAA time to evaluate and approve them.
Rural Development; Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA) Inviting Applications for the Renewable Energy Systems and Energy Efficiency Improvements Grant Program
Document Number: 05-5793
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-03-28
Agency: Department of Agriculture
Rural Development announces the availability of up to $22.8 million in competitive grant funds for fiscal year (FY) 2005 to purchase renewable energy systems and make energy improvements for agricultural producers and rural small businesses.

These funds will be administered under a final rule to be published in the Federal Register later this fiscal year. Any guaranteed loan funds not obligated by August 31, 2005, will be made available for competitive grants under this notice. In order to be eligible for grant funds, the agricultural producer or rural small business must demonstrate financial need. The grant request must not exceed 25 percent of the eligible project costs.
Airworthiness Directives; British Aerospace Model BAe 146 and Model Avro 146-RJ Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-5575
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-03-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain British Aerospace Model BAe 146 and Model Avro 146-RJ series airplanes. That AD currently requires a one- time measurement of the thickness of the outer links on the side stays of the main landing gear (MLG), and related investigative and corrective actions as necessary; and provides for replacement of a thin outer link with a new or serviceable part in lieu of certain related investigative inspections. This new AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the outer links on the MLG side stays, and corrective actions if necessary. This new action also expands the applicability, provides for optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections, and reduces the repetitive inspection interval. This AD is prompted by new crack findings on airplanes not subject to the existing AD, and the determination that the profile gauge's slipping over the outer link profile is not a factor in the identified unsafe condition. We are issuing this AD to prevent cracking of the outer links of the MLG side stays, which could result in failure of a side stay and consequent collapse of the landing gear.

The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Northeast Region, NMFS (Assistant Regional Administrator) has made a preliminary determination that an Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) application submitted by the Mount Desert Oceanarium (MDO), Southwest Harbor, ME, contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration.
