ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD). This proposed AD is for Pratt & Whitney (PW) PW4077D, PW4084D, PW4090, and PW4090–3 turbofan engines that were reassembled with certain previously used high pressure compressor (HPC) exit brush seal assembly parts and certain new or refurbished HPC exit diffuser air seal inner lands. This proposed AD would require replacing the HPC exit inner and outer brush seal packs with new brush seal packs, or replacing the HPC exit brush seal assembly with a new HPC exit brush seal assembly. This proposed AD results from a report of oil leaking into the high pressure turbine (HPT) interstage cavity and igniting, leading to an uncontained failure of the 2nd stage turbine air seal and engine in-flight shutdown. We are proposing this AD to prevent uncontained engine failure, damage to the airplane, and injury to passengers. We must receive any comments on this proposed AD by June 19, 2006.

AGENCY: Food Safety and Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: This document corrects the preamble and regulatory text to a 
proposed rule published in the Federal Register of March 28, 2006, 
concerning net weight compliance for meat and poultry products. These 
corrections reference the revised version of the National Institute of 
Standards and Technology (NIST) Handbook 133, dated January 2005. The

133, dated January 2002. The standards in the January 2005 NIST 
Handbook 133 that are being proposed to be incorporated by reference in 
FSIS' meat and poultry inspection regulations remain substantively 
unchanged from those currently incorporated by reference in FSIS' 
regulations and are no different than the standards in the January 2002 
version.
