ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) is amending its regulations to incorporate a number of PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 technical and conforming amendments. They include clarifications and corrections of typographical errors. EFFECTIVE DATE: December 28, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sandra E. Evans, Legal Information Assistant (Regulations), (202) 906–6076, Regulations and Legislation Division, Chief Counsel’s Office, Office of Thrift Supervision, 1700 G Street, NW., Washington, DC 20552. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OTS is amending its regulations to incorporate a number of technical and conforming amendments. OTS is making the following miscellaneous changes: • Part 510—Miscellaneous Organizational Regulations. The final rule revises OTS’ regulation on waiver or relaxation of regulatory provisions with respect to disaster or emergency areas in § 510.2(b). The revision indicates that OTS will make such waivers by ‘‘order,’’ rather than by ‘‘resolution.’’ This update in terminology better reflects the usual method of operation of OTS, as compared to that of its predecessor, the Federal Home Loan Bank Board. • Part 546—Federal Mutual Savings Associations—Merger, Dissolution, Reorganization, and Conversion. The final rule removes the name of an office that is no longer in existence and corrects a grammatical error. • Part 559—Subordinate Organizations. The final rule adds investments in rural business investment companies (RBICs) to the list of preapproved activities for federal savings association service corporations. This addition reflects the statutory authority of savings associations to make such investments under 7 U.S.C. 2009cc–9. It is consistent with the inclusion of investments in small business investment companies and new market venture capital companies on the list of preapproved activities under the current rule. • Part 560—Lending and Investment. The final rule adds investments in RBICs to the lending and investment powers chart. This addition reflects the statutory authority of savings associations to establish and invest in such entities, or any entity established to invest solely in RBICs, up to five percent of total capital and surplus under 7 U.S.C. 2009cc–9. • Part 561—Definitions for Regulations Affecting All Savings Associations. The final rule revises the definition of ‘‘demand accounts’’ in § 561.16 to delete paragraph (b), remove the designation for paragraph (a), and make a grammatical change to the text that was formerly designated as E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 28, 2005 / Rules and Regulations 76675 paragraph (a). OTS is deleting paragraph (b) for consistency with a November 28, 2005, Chief Counsel opinion. That opinion concluded that the payment of a certain type of finders’ fee would not violate the prohibition against the payment of interest on demand deposits in section 5(b)(1)(B)(i) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act, 12 U.S.C. 1464(b)(1)(B)(i), even though the fees in question would not specifically fit the exceptions indicated in paragraph (b). Savings associations may, however, continue to rely on the language in paragraph (b) as two examples of permissible types of finders’ fees. • Part 567—Capital. The final rule corrects a typographical error in § 567.6(b)(5)(v)(B). Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 Authority: 12 U.S.C. 1462, 1462a, 1463, 1464, 1467a, 2901 et seq. OTS has determined that the requirements of this final rule will not result in expenditures by State, local, and tribal governments, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. Accordingly, a budgetary impact statement is not required under section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. § 546.4 12 CFR Part 546 6. The authority citation for part 559 continues to read as follows: Administrative Procedure Act; Riegle Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994 Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Savings associations. Authority: 12 U.S.C. 1462, 1462a, 1463, 1464, 1828. 12 CFR Part 559 I OTS finds that there is good cause to dispense with prior notice and comment on this final rule and with the 30-day delay of effective date mandated by the Administrative Procedure Act.1 OTS believes that these procedures are unnecessary and contrary to public interest because the rule merely makes technical changes to existing provisions. Because the amendments in the rule are not substantive, these changes will not affect savings associations. Section 302 of the Riegle Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994 provides that regulations that impose additional reporting, disclosure, or other new requirements may not take effect before the first day of the quarter following publication.2 This section does not apply because this final rule imposes no additional requirements and makes only technical changes to existing regulations.

Airworthiness Directives; BURKHARDT GROB LUFT–UND RAUMFAHRT GmbH & CO KG Model G103 TWIN ASTIR Sailplanes Background SUMMARY: The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all BURKHARDT GROB LUFT–UND RAUMFAHRT GmbH & CO KG (Burkhardt Grob) Model G103 TWIN ASTIR sailplanes. This AD requires you to replace the elevator lever, part number (P/N) 103–3521, with an improved design part, P/N 103–3523. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. We are issuing this AD to prevent cracks in the elevator lever, which could cause the elevator lever to fail. This failure could result in loss of control of the sailplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective on February 6, 2006. As of February 6, 2006, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulation. ADDRESSES: To get the service information identified in this AD, contact BURKHARDT GROB LUFT– UND RAUMFAHRT GmbH & CO KG, Letenbachstrasse 9, D–86874 Tussenhausen-Mattsies, Germany; The purpose of the policy memorandum is to clarify FAA certification policy of the acceptable substantiation methods used to provide protection under § 25.562(a) when meeting the performance standards in § 25.562(c) for ‘‘front row’’ seats. Front row seats are those seats which are located directly aft of a partition, monument, or other commodity, including all passenger seats not considered ‘‘row-to-row.’’ The policy is not directed toward other seats. The policy provides an acceptable means of protection for front row occupants. The final policy as well as the disposition of public comments received are available on the Internet at the following address: http:// airweb.faa.gov.rgl.

Technical Amendments

AGENCY: Office of Thrift Supervision, Treasury.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) is amending its 
regulations to incorporate a number of technical and conforming 
amendments. They include clarifications and corrections of 
typographical errors.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 28, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sandra E. Evans, Legal Information 
Assistant (Regulations), (202) 906-6076, Regulations and Legislation 
Division, Chief Counsel's Office, Office of Thrift Supervision, 1700 G 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20552.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OTS is amending its regulations to 
incorporate a number of technical and conforming amendments. OTS is 
making the following miscellaneous changes:
     Part 510--Miscellaneous Organizational Regulations. The 
final rule revises OTS' regulation on waiver or relaxation of 
regulatory provisions with respect to disaster or emergency areas in 
Sec.  510.2(b). The revision indicates that OTS will make such waivers 
by ``order,'' rather than by ``resolution.'' This update in terminology 
better reflects the usual method of operation of OTS, as compared to 
that of its predecessor, the Federal Home Loan Bank Board.
     Part 546--Federal Mutual Savings Associations--Merger, 
Dissolution, Reorganization, and Conversion. The final rule removes the 
name of an office that is no longer in existence and corrects a 
grammatical error.
     Part 559--Subordinate Organizations. The final rule adds 
investments in rural business investment companies (RBICs) to the list 
of preapproved activities for federal savings association service 
corporations. This addition reflects the statutory authority of savings 
associations to make such investments under 7 U.S.C. 2009cc-9. It is 
consistent with the inclusion of investments in small business 
investment companies and new market venture capital companies on the 
list of preapproved activities under the current rule.
     Part 560--Lending and Investment. The final rule adds 
investments in RBICs to the lending and investment powers chart. This 
addition reflects the statutory authority of savings associations to 
establish and invest in such entities, or any entity established to 
invest solely in RBICs, up to five percent of total capital and surplus 
under 7 U.S.C. 2009cc-9.
     Part 561--Definitions for Regulations Affecting All 
Savings Associations. The final rule revises the definition of ``demand 
accounts'' in Sec.  561.16 to delete paragraph (b), remove the 
designation for paragraph (a), and make a grammatical change to the 
text that was formerly designated as

[[Page 76675]]

paragraph (a). OTS is deleting paragraph (b) for consistency with a 
November 28, 2005, Chief Counsel opinion. That opinion concluded that 
the payment of a certain type of finders' fee would not violate the 
prohibition against the payment of interest on demand deposits in 
section 5(b)(1)(B)(i) of the Home Owners' Loan Act, 12 U.S.C. 
1464(b)(1)(B)(i), even though the fees in question would not 
specifically fit the exceptions indicated in paragraph (b). Savings 
associations may, however, continue to rely on the language in 
paragraph (b) as two examples of permissible types of finders' fees.
     Part 567--Capital. The final rule corrects a typographical 
error in Sec.  567.6(b)(5)(v)(B).

Administrative Procedure Act; Riegle Community Development and 
Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994

    OTS finds that there is good cause to dispense with prior notice 
and comment on this final rule and with the 30-day delay of effective 
date mandated by the Administrative Procedure Act.\1\ OTS believes that 
these procedures are unnecessary and contrary to public interest 
because the rule merely makes technical changes to existing provisions. 
Because the amendments in the rule are not substantive, these changes 
will not affect savings associations.

    \1\ 5 U.S.C. 553.

    Section 302 of the Riegle Community Development and Regulatory 
Improvement Act of 1994 provides that regulations that impose 
additional reporting, disclosure, or other new requirements may not 
take effect before the first day of the quarter following 
publication.\2\ This section does not apply because this final rule 
imposes no additional requirements and makes only technical changes to 
existing regulations.

    OTS has determined that this rule is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

    OTS has determined that the requirements of this final rule will 
not result in expenditures by State, local, and tribal governments, or 
by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. 
Accordingly, a budgetary impact statement is not required under section 
202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.
