SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Dairy Production Stabilization Act of 1983 E:\FR\FM\28FEP1.SGM 28FEP1 sroberts on PROD1PC70 with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 39 / Tuesday, February 28, 2006 / Proposed Rules (Act) (7 U.S.C. Section 4501, et seq.) authorized a national dairy producer program designed to develop and finance promotion, research, and nutrition education programs to maintain and expand markets and uses for milk and dairy products in the contiguous 48 States. The program is conducted under the Dairy Promotion and Research Order (7 CFR part 1150). The program became effective on May 1, 1984, when the Order was issued. The National Dairy Promotion and Research Program is funded by a mandatory assessment of 15 cents per hundredweight on all milk produced in the 48 contiguous states and marketed commercially. Producers can receive a credit of up to 10 cents a hundredweight for payments made to any State or regional dairy product promotion, research or nutrition education programs which are certified as qualified programs pursuant to the Order. The Order provides for the establishment of the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (Dairy Board) that is composed of 36 members appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture. Each member represents 1 of 13 Regions in the 48 contiguous States. The members of the Dairy Board serve 3-year terms and are eligible to be appointed to 2 consecutive terms. AMS published in the Federal Register its plan (64 FR 8014, February 18, 1999), and later its updated plan (68 FR 48574, August 14, 2003), to review certain regulations using criteria contained in Section 610 of the RFA (5 U.S.C. 601–612). Given that many AMS regulations impact small entities, AMS decided as a matter of policy to review certain regulations which, although they may not meet the threshold requirement under Section 610 of the RFA, warrant review. Accordingly, this notice and request for comments is made for the National Dairy Promotion and Research Program (conducted under the Dairy Promotion and Research Order). The purpose of the review is to determine whether the Order should be continued without change, amended, or rescinded (consistent with the objectives of the Act) to minimize any significant economic impact of rules upon a substantial number of small entities. AMS will consider the continued need for the Order; the nature of complaints or comments received from the public concerning the Order; the complexity of the Order; the extent to which the Order overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal rules and, to the extent feasible, with State and local government rules; and the length of time since the Order has been VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:29 Feb 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 evaluated or the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the area affected by the Order. Written comments, views, opinions, and other information regarding the Order’s impact on small businesses are invited. Dated: February 23, 2006. Lloyd C.

[FR Doc. 06–1854 Filed 2–27–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3410–02–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2006–23888; Directorate Identifier 2005–SW–03–AD] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Model AS350B, BA, B1, B2, B3, C, D, and D1 Helicopters Federal Aviation Administration, DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document proposes adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) Model AS350B, BA, B1, B2, B3, C, D, and D1 helicopters that have a Geneva Aviation, Inc. (Geneva) P132 console (console) installed. This proposal would require installing right and left side Geneva cyclic control sticks and modifying the cyclic grips and the copilot cyclic stand (receptacle). This proposal is prompted by reports that pilots had restricted cyclic stick travel when using Eurocopter factory-installed cyclic sticks in a helicopter that has been modified in accordance with a certain Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of a Geneva P132 console. The actions specified by this proposed AD are intended to prevent restricting full lateral movement of the cyclic control during high lateral center of gravity (CG) load operations in high cross winds and during slope takeoffs or landings, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. DATES: Comments must be received on or before May 1, 2006. ADDRESSES: Use one of the following addresses to submit comments on this proposed AD: • DOT Docket Web site: Go to https://dms.dot.gov and follow the PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 9979 instructions for sending your comments electronically; • Government-wide rulemaking Web site: Go to https://www.regulations.gov and follow the instructions for sending your comments electronically; • Mail: Docket Management Facility; U.S. Department of Transportation, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Nassif Building, Room PL–401, Washington, DC 20590; • Fax: 202–493–2251; or • Hand Delivery: Room PL–401 on the plaza level of the Nassif Building, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Dairy Production Stabilization Act of 
1983

[[Page 9979]]

(Act) (7 U.S.C. Section 4501, et seq.) authorized a national dairy 
producer program designed to develop and finance promotion, research, 
and nutrition education programs to maintain and expand markets and 
uses for milk and dairy products in the contiguous 48 States. The 
program is conducted under the Dairy Promotion and Research Order (7 
CFR part 1150).
    The program became effective on May 1, 1984, when the Order was 
issued. The National Dairy Promotion and Research Program is funded by 
a mandatory assessment of 15 cents per hundredweight on all milk 
produced in the 48 contiguous states and marketed commercially. 
Producers can receive a credit of up to 10 cents a hundredweight for 
payments made to any State or regional dairy product promotion, 
research or nutrition education programs which are certified as 
qualified programs pursuant to the Order.
    The Order provides for the establishment of the National Dairy 
Promotion and Research Board (Dairy Board) that is composed of 36 
members appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture. Each member 
represents 1 of 13 Regions in the 48 contiguous States. The members of 
the Dairy Board serve 3-year terms and are eligible to be appointed to 
2 consecutive terms.
    AMS published in the Federal Register its plan (64 FR 8014, 
February 18, 1999), and later its updated plan (68 FR 48574, August 14, 
2003), to review certain regulations using criteria contained in 
Section 610 of the RFA (5 U.S.C. 601-612). Given that many AMS 
regulations impact small entities, AMS decided as a matter of policy to 
review certain regulations which, although they may not meet the 
threshold requirement under Section 610 of the RFA, warrant review. 
Accordingly, this notice and request for comments is made for the 
National Dairy Promotion and Research Program (conducted under the 
Dairy Promotion and Research Order).
    The purpose of the review is to determine whether the Order should 
be continued without change, amended, or rescinded (consistent with the 
objectives of the Act) to minimize any significant economic impact of 
rules upon a substantial number of small entities. AMS will consider 
the continued need for the Order; the nature of complaints or comments 
received from the public concerning the Order; the complexity of the 
Order; the extent to which the Order overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts 
with other Federal rules and, to the extent feasible, with State and 
local government rules; and the length of time since the Order has been 
evaluated or the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or 
other factors have changed in the area affected by the Order.
    Written comments, views, opinions, and other information regarding 
the Order's impact on small businesses are invited.
