Document Number: 05-12706
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-28
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
We are soliciting comment on modeling information relevant to our May 12, 2005, proposal to include the States of Delaware and New Jersey within the scope of the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) for purposes of assessing significance of contribution to downwind States' attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) (70 FR 25408). Note that we are soliciting comment only on this modeling information, and are not reopening, reconsidering, or otherwise seeking comment on any aspect of the CAIR. This information is summarized in a table listing the combined contributions of emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) from Delaware and New Jersey, to annual average PM2.5 concentrations in projected 2010 nonattainment counties in other States within the Eastern United States. This table is included in Section III below. Detailed background information describing the rulemaking may be found in two previously published actions: 1. Rule to Reduce Interstate Transport of Fine Particulate Matter and Ozone (Clean Air Interstate Rule); Final Rule, 70 FR 25162, May 12, 2005; and, 2. Inclusion of Delaware and New Jersey in the Clean Air Interstate Rule; Proposed Rule, 70 FR 25408, May 12, 2005. These actions and the table listed above are available in the public docket (Docket Number OAR-2003-0053) and are also available for public review on the Web site for this rulemaking at http://www.epa.gov/cleanairinterstaterule. We have chosen to include material for this rulemaking as part of the CAIR docket. However, this is a separate rulemaking, and we are not soliciting comment on any aspect of the CAIR rule. We may place additional documents in the docket, and if we do so, we will announce their availability by posting a notice on the CAIR Web site shown above. In addition, we are reopening the comment period for the Proposed Rule to Include Delaware and New Jersey in the Clean Air Interstate Rule so it coincides with the comment period for this NODA.

Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca Arriel 1B, 1D, 1D1 and 1S1 Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 05-12692
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) that is applicable to certain Turbomeca Arriel 1B, 1D, 1D1 and 1S1 turboshaft engines. This proposal would require initial and repetitive position checks of the gas generator 2nd stage turbine blades on all Turbomeca Arriel 1B, 1D, 1D1 and 1S1 turboshaft engines, and replacement of 2nd stage turbines on 1B and 1D1 engines only. This proposal is prompted by the release of gas generator 2nd stage turbine blades while in service, with full containment of debris. We are proposing this AD to prevent an uncommanded engine in flight shutdown.
Angeles National Forest, California, Antelope-Pardee 500-kV Transmission Project
Document Number: 05-12691
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-06-28
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Forest Service
Notice is hereby given that the USDA Forest Service, together with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), will prepare a joint Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in response to applications received from Southern California Edison for construction of a new 25.6-mile 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line between the proponent's existing 220-kV Antelope and Pardee substations that are located in Los Angeles County, California. The Forest Service is the lead Federal agency for the preparation of this EIS/EIR in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and all other applicable laws, executive orders, regulations, and direction. The CPUC is the lead State of California agency for the preparation of the EIS/EIR in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), California Public Resource Code Division 13, and all other applicable laws and regulations. Both agencies have determined an EIS/ EIR is needed to effectively analyze the proposal and evaluate impacts. The new 500-kV transmission line would replace the existing 100-foot right-of-way 66 kV-line along 17.5 miles of the proposed route. Approximately 13 miles of the Antelope-Pardee 500-kV Transmission Project would be located in a 160-foot right-of-way on National Forest System land (managed by the Angeles National Forest). Approximately three miles of the proposed project would be constructed in a new right-of-way outside of the Angeles National Forest. The proposed project also includes an expansion and upgrade of the Antelope Substation from 220 kV to 500 kV, and the relocation of several existing 66-kV subtransmission lines near the Antelope Substation. The USDA Forest Service and the CPUC invite written comments on the scope of this proposed project. In addition, the agencies give notice of this analysis so that interested and affected individuals are aware of how they may participate and contribute to the final decision.
Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Model 206A, A-1, B, B-1, L, L-1, L-3, L-4 Helicopters
Document Number: 05-12690
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document proposes adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the specified Bell Helicopter Textron Canada (BHTC) model helicopters. This proposal would require, before the first flight of each day, checking the tail rotor blade (blade) root doublers (doublers) for an edge void or de-bond on both sides of each blade, and if an edge void or de-bond is found, replacing the unairworthy blade with an airworthy blade. This proposal would also require replacing any affected serial-numbered blade with an airworthy blade. This proposal is prompted by reports of de-bond of the doublers due to inadequate surface preparation resulting in poor adherence of the doublers. The actions specified by this proposed AD are intended to prevent loss of a blade, loss of tail rotor control, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

This proposal is prompted by an in-flight break up of a helicopter on which both brackets failed.

The Corporation for National and Community Service hereinafter the ``Corporation''), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Corporation is soliciting comments concerning a web- based senior service recruitment system, called ``Join Senior Service Now'' (JASON), that enables Americans ages 55 and over who are interested in volunteering to match their interests and talents with community homeland security and other critical community needs that have been identified by local Senior Corps grant projects. Use of the system is entirely voluntary. This system was deployed in 2002 and can be accessed by the public at the following Web site: www.joinseniorservice.org. The system is also a component of the USA Freedom Corps Volunteer Opportunities Search Engine. Copies of the information collection requests can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the address section of this notice.
