I Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive: I 2005–10–16 General Electric Company: Amendment 39–14093. Docket No. FAA–2005–21238; Directorate Identifier 2005–NE–12–AD. Effective Date (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective June 3, 2005. Affected ADs (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to all General Electric (GE) CF6–80E1 series turbofan engines with electronic control unit (ECU) part numbers (P/N’s) 1799M99P12, 1851M74P05, 1851M80P05, and 1960M84P03 or earlier installed. These (GE) CF6–80E1 series engines are installed on, but not limited to, Airbus Industrie (AI) A330 airplanes. Unsafe Condition (d) This AD results from an uncommanded engine acceleration event caused by a failure of the ECU digital interface unit (DIU). We are issuing this AD to prevent undetected failure of the ECU DIU, which could result in uncommanded acceleration to the overspeed limit without response to throttle commands. The airplane could then experience asymmetric thrust. Compliance (e) You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD performed within the compliance times specified unless the actions have already been done. GE CF6–80E1A4/B Engines (f) For GE CF6–80E1A4/B engines with ECU’s that already have software version E.1.N installed, no further action is required. All Other CF6–80E1 Series Turbofan Engines (g) At next ECU exposure, upload improved software version E.1.N. Use the Accomplishment Instructions of either of GE Aircraft Engines CF6–80E1 Service Bulletin (SB) 73–0070, dated June 22, 2004, or SB 73– 0070, Revision 01, dated March 21, 2005. (h) For the purposes of this AD, the next ECU exposure is defined as the next removal of the ECU for repair, or the next engine shop visit, whichever occurs sooner. (i) After the effective date of this AD, do not install any ECU that has a software version earlier than E.1.N onto any engine. Alternative Methods of Compliance (j) The Manager, Engine Certification Office, has the authority to approve alternative methods of compliance for this AD if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

[Regulation No. 4] Explanation of Changes RIN 0960–AF62 The following is a brief summary of the sections we have revised and the changes to each of them. Section 404.338 Widow’s and widower’s benefits amounts. This section describes the benefit amount a widow or widower may expect to receive relative to the benefit amount of the deceased insured spouse. The benefit amount for the widow or widower may include increased benefits based on delayed retirement credit of the deceased insured spouse, or reduced benefits based on the deceased insured spouse retiring before reaching full retirement age. This section also discusses widow or widower benefits based on a special primary insurance amount when the insured died before reaching age 62. We have revised this section to reflect the change in full retirement age. Sections 404.415 and 404.416 Deductions because of excess earnings; annual earnings test. Amount of deduction because of excess earnings. We have combined §§ 404.415 and 404.416 into a new § 404.415, ‘‘Deductions because of excess earnings,’’ because the topics are closely related and overlapping. New § 404.415 explains the effect of excess earnings on the benefits of: 1. An insured person caused by his/ her excess earnings; 2. An auxiliary beneficiary because of the excess earnings of the insured person on whose record he/she draws benefits; 3. An auxiliary beneficiary because of his/her own excess earnings, which reduce only that beneficiary’s benefits. The new § 404.415 also reflects the legislated changes in full retirement age and annual earnings test. Section 404.428 Earnings in a taxable year. This section clarifies the method for calculating a beneficiary’s or prospective beneficiary’s annual earnings with respect to the annual earnings test. It also clarifies when the claimant may use a taxable year other than a calendar year, and the number of months in a taxable year used in the earnings test calculation for the year of death. This section also defines which reporting year wage earners and selfemployed individuals must use relative to the year in which the earnings were earned. This section is revised to reflect changes in the annual earnings test and full retirement age.

This legislation increases the full retirement age for persons born in 1938 or later in incremental amounts, with a full 2-year increase in full retirement age for persons born in 1960 or later.

NASA Grant and Cooperative Agreement Handbook--Research 
Misconduct

AGENCY: National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final rule amends several of the NASA Grant and 
Cooperative Agreement Handbook sections, which are all entitled, 
``Definitions,'' to include Research Misconduct as a defined term. In 
addition, provisions would be added to implement NASA's requirements on 
research misconduct.

DATES: Effective Date: May 19, 2005.

HC, Washington, DC, (202) 358-0481, e-mail: paul.d.brundage@nasa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    NASA published a final rule in the Federal Register at 69 FR 42102 
on July 14, 2004, (see 14 CFR part 1275), which defined and established 
policy and procedures regarding research misconduct. This final rule 
implements those polices and procedures for grants and cooperative 
agreements.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    NASA certifies that this final rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the 
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., 
because the changes will affect an insignificant number of grants and 
cooperative agreements.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this rule does 
not impose any new recordkeeping or information collection 
requirements, or collection of information from offerors, contractors, 
or members of the public that require the approval of the Office of 
Management (OMB) and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
