Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 249 / Thursday, December 29, 2005 / Rules and Regulations Therefore, the Executive Subcommittee and committee agreed that $0.65 per ton of salable dried prunes is an acceptable assessment rate. The committee is authorized to use excess assessment funds from the 2004– 05 crop year (currently estimated at $13,000) for up to 5 months beyond the end of the crop year to meet 2003–04 crop year expenses. At the end of the 5 months, the committee either refunds or credits excess funds to handlers (§ 993.81(c)). This action continues in effect the action that decreased the assessment obligation imposed on handlers. Assessments are applied uniformly on all handlers, and some of the costs may be passed on to producers. However, decreasing the assessment rate reduces the burden on handlers, and may reduce the burden on producers. In addition, the committee’s meeting was widely publicized throughout the California dried prune industry and all interested persons were invited to attend the meeting and participate in committee deliberations on all issues. Like all committee meetings, the June 30, 2005, meeting was a public meeting and all entities, both large and small, were encouraged to express views on this issue. This action imposes no additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements on either small or large California dried prune handlers. As with all Federal marketing order programs, reports and forms are periodically reviewed to reduce information requirements and duplication by industry and public sector agencies. USDA has not identified any relevant Federal rules that duplicate, overlap, or conflict with this rule. An interim final rule concerning this action was published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2005. The committee staff mailed copies of the rule to all committee members, alternates, and prune handlers. In addition, the rule was made available through the Internet by the Office of the Federal Register and USDA. That rule provided for a 60-day comment period which ended November 14, 2005. Three comments were received. Two comments were not relevant to the rulemaking action, and one comment supported the reduced assessment rate for prunes. A small business guide on complying with fruit, vegetable, and specialty crop marketing agreements and orders may be viewed at: http://www.ams.usda.gov/ fv/moab/html. Any questions about the compliance guide should be sent to Jay Guerber at the previously mentioned VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:06 Dec 28, 2005 Jkt 208001 address in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. After consideration of all relevant material presented, including the information and recommendation submitted by the committee and other available information, it is hereby found that this rule, as hereinafter set forth, will tend to effectuate the declared policy of the Act.

ACTION: Final rule; correction. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document corrects information in an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Airbus Model A320–111 airplanes, and Model A320–200 series airplanes. That AD currently requires a detailed inspection of the tail cone triangle to determine its position, and corrective actions if necessary. This document corrects the applicability by specifying that the AD affects only airplanes identified in Airbus Service Bulletin A320–27–1132, Revision 01, dated June 19, 2002. This correction is necessary to ensure that only affected airplanes are subject to the requirements of the AD. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 76973 Effective December 5, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 20, 2005, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued AD 2005– 22–10, amendment 39–14354 (70 FR 62232, October 31, 2005), which applies to certain Airbus Model A320–111 airplanes, and Model A320–200 series airplanes. That AD requires a detailed inspection of the tail cone triangle to determine its position, and corrective actions if necessary. That AD was prompted by a report that the tail cone triangles were not installed properly on certain airplanes during production, resulting in possible mis-rigged elevator servo-controls. The actions required by that AD are intended to prevent excessive vibrations of the elevators, which could result in reduced structural integrity and reduced controllability of the airplane. DATES: Need for the Correction Information obtained recently by the FAA indicates that we inadvertently changed the applicability from that specified in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking by omitting from the statement of applicability of AD 2005– 22–10 that airplanes affected by the AD are those identified in Airbus Service Bulletin A320–27–1132, Revision 01, dated June 19, 2002. The FAA has determined that a correction to AD 2005–22–10 is necessary. The correction will revise the applicability to include a reference to Airbus Service Bulletin A320–27–1132, Revision 01, dated June 19, 2002. Correction of Publication This document corrects the error and correctly adds the AD as an amendment to section 39.13 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 39.13). The AD is reprinted in its entirety for the convenience of affected operators. The effective date of the AD remains December 5, 2005. Since this action reduces the number of airplanes affected by revising the applicability, it has no adverse economic impact and imposes no additional burden on any person.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A320-111 Airplanes, and 
Model A320-200 Series Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: This document corrects information in an existing 
airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Airbus Model A320-
111 airplanes, and Model A320-200 series airplanes. That AD currently 
requires a detailed inspection of the tail cone triangle to determine 
its position, and corrective actions if necessary. This document 
corrects the applicability by specifying that the AD affects only 
airplanes identified in Airbus Service Bulletin A320-27-1132, Revision 
01, dated June 19, 2002. This correction is necessary to ensure that 
only affected airplanes are subject to the requirements of the AD.

DATES: Effective December 5, 2005.
    The incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in 
the regulations was approved previously by the Director of the Federal 
Register as of December 5, 2005 (70 FR 62232, October 31, 2005).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tim Dulin, Aerospace Engineer, 
International Branch, ANM-116, FAA, Transport Airplane Directorate,

227-2141; fax (425) 227-1149.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 20, 2005, the Federal Aviation 
Administration (FAA) issued AD 2005-22-10, amendment 39-14354 (70 FR 
62232, October 31, 2005), which applies to certain Airbus Model A320-
111 airplanes, and Model A320-200 series airplanes. That AD requires a 
detailed inspection of the tail cone triangle to determine its 
position, and corrective actions if necessary. That AD was prompted by 
a report that the tail cone triangles were not installed properly on 
certain airplanes during production, resulting in possible mis-rigged 
elevator servo-controls. The actions required by that AD are intended 
to prevent excessive vibrations of the elevators, which could result in 
reduced structural integrity and reduced controllability of the 
airplane.

Need for the Correction

    Information obtained recently by the FAA indicates that we 
inadvertently changed the applicability from that specified in the 
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking by omitting from the statement of 
applicability of AD 2005-22-10 that airplanes affected by the AD are 
those identified in Airbus Service Bulletin A320-27-1132, Revision 01, 
dated June 19, 2002.
    The FAA has determined that a correction to AD 2005-22-10 is 
necessary. The correction will revise the applicability to include a 
reference to Airbus Service Bulletin A320-27-1132, Revision 01, dated 
June 19, 2002.

Correction of Publication

    This document corrects the error and correctly adds the AD as an 
amendment to section 39.13 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 
39.13).
    The AD is reprinted in its entirety for the convenience of affected 
operators. The effective date of the AD remains December 5, 2005.
    Since this action reduces the number of airplanes affected by 
revising the applicability, it has no adverse economic impact and 
imposes no additional burden on any person.

[[Page 76974]]

Therefore, the FAA has determined that notice and public procedures are 
unnecessary.
