Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport: Enhanced Security Procedures for Certain Operations
Since September 11, 2001, general aviation aircraft operations have been prohibited at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is issuing this interim final rule (IFR) to restore access to DCA for certain aircraft operations while maintaining the security of critical Federal Government and other assets in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. This IFR applies to all passenger aircraft operations into or out of DCA, except U.S. air carrier operations operating under a full security program required by 49 CFR part 1544 and foreign air carrier operations operating under 49 CFR 1546.101(a) or (b). The IFR establishes security procedures for aircraft operators and gateway airport operators, and security requirements relating to crewmembers, passengers, and armed security officers onboard aircraft operating into or out of DCA. Although this IFR is effective on August 18, 2005, an aircraft operator may not conduct operations into or out of DCA until it is determined by TSA to be in compliance with the security requirements set forth in this IFR.
Food Labeling; Gluten-Free Labeling of Foods; Public Meeting; Request for Comments

In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this document announces that EPA is planning to submit a continuing Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This is a request to renew an existing approved collection. This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2005. Before submitting the ICR to OMB for review and approval, EPA is soliciting comments on specific aspects of the proposed information collection as described below.
Hazardous Waste Management System; Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste; Proposed Exclusion
EPA is proposing to grant a petition submitted by General Motors Corporation-Arlington Truck Assembly Plant (GM-Arlington) to exclude (or delist) a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) sludge generated by GM-Arlington in Arlington, TX. from the lists of hazardous wastes. EPA used the Delisting Risk Assessment Software (DRAS) in the evaluation of the impact of the petitioned waste on human health and the environment. EPA bases its proposed decision to grant the petition on an evaluation of waste-specific information provided by the petitioner. This proposed decision, if finalized, would exclude the petitioned waste from the requirements of hazardous waste regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). If finalized, EPA would conclude that GM-Arlington's petitioned waste is non-hazardous with respect to the original listing criteria. EPA would also conclude that GM-Arlington's process minimizes short- term and long-term threats from the petitioned waste to human health and the environment.
Notice of Proposed Withdrawal Extensions and Public Meetings; Idaho
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has filed an application proposing to extend Public Land Order Nos. 6629 and 6670 for additional 20-year terms. The Public Land Orders withdrew public lands and reserved mineral interests from settlement, sale, location, and entry under the general land laws, including the mining laws, to protect the recreational and scenic values of the Lower Salmon River. This notice gives the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed action and gives notice for scheduled public meetings in connection with the proposed withdrawal extensions.

NMFS announces that the Administrator, Northeast Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), has projected that 100 percent of the quarterly incidental total allowable catch (TAC) of Georges Bank (GB) cod specified to be harvested under the Regular B Days-at-Sea (DAS) Pilot Program will be harvested by July 18, 2005. Therefore, the use of Regular B DAS under the Regular B DAS Pilot Program is prohibited throughout the GB cod stock area through the end of the current quarter (see the DATES and SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION sections of this rule for further details). The intended effect of this action is to prevent over-harvesting the incidental catch TAC of GB cod under the Regular B DAS Pilot Program during the current quarter, in accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
Intent To Prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (DEIS/DEIR) for Proposed Future Permit Actions Under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act for the Newhall Ranch Specific Plan and Associated Facilities Along Portions of the Santa Clara River and Its Side Drainages, and Development of a Candidate Conservation Agreement with Assurances (CCAA) for the San Fernando Valley Spineflower, in Los Angeles County, California, With the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
The project proponent and landowner, The Newhall Land and Farming Company (Newhall Land), has requested a long-term Clean Water Act Section 404 permit from the Corps of Engineers for facilities associated with the Newhall Ranch Specific Plan. The action is necessary to facilitate buildout of the Specific Plan. The effect will be to authorize the construction of bridges, flood control structures, and to grade and fill certain side drainages for roads and buildings. The reason for this revised notice of intent (NOI) is because the project proponent's proposed action has been expanded to include development of a voluntary CCAA between Newhall Land and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to specify spineflower preserve locations, manage spineflower habitat, and to authorize future take of spineflower, in the event it becomes federally listed under the federal Endangered Species Act as threatened or endangered, involving three properties: Newhall Ranch, Valencia Commerce Center, and Entrada. The Corps of Engineers intends to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to evaluate the potential effects of the proposed action on the environment. To eliminate duplication of paperwork, the Corps of Engineers intends to coordinate the DEIS with the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) being prepared by the California Department of Fish and Game. The joint document will meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) as well as enable the Corps to analyze the project pursuant to the 404(b)(1) Guidelines and assess potential impacts on various public interest factors.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 Series Airplanes
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require operators to modify the hydraulic control block of the nose landing gear. This proposed AD is prompted by a report of an unexpected steering event (swerve) during the take-off roll of one affected airplane. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of airplane steering while on the ground, which could result in the airplane going off the side of the runway.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A320-111 Airplanes, and Model A320-200 Series Airplanes
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A320-111 airplanes, and Model A320-200 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing a bonding strip between each of the two water scavenge jet pumps of the center fuel tank and the rear spar in section 21. This proposed AD is prompted by the results of fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent an ignition source for fuel vapor in the wing, which could result in fire or explosion in the center wing fuel tank.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A320-111 Airplanes; and Model A320-200, A321-100, and A321-200 Series Airplanes
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A320-111 airplanes; and Model A320-200, A321- 100, and A321-200 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing a bonding lead between the low pressure valve and the adjacent pipe assembly in each wing. This proposed AD is prompted by the results of fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent an ignition source for fuel vapor in the wing, which could result in fire or explosion in the adjacent wing fuel tank.
