Payne, Chief, Marketing Programs Branch, 202/720–1115 or via e-mail at Kenneth.Payne@usda.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 12866 The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has waived the review process required by Executive Order 12866 for this action. Executive Order 12988 This rule was reviewed under Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. It is not intended to have a retroactive effect. This rule would not preempt any State or local laws, regulations, or policies unless they present an irreconcilable conflict with this rule. The Soybean Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Act (Act) provides that administrative proceedings must be exhausted before parties may file suit in court. Under § 1971 of the Act, a person subject to the Order may file a petition with the Secretary stating that the Order, any provision of the Order, or any obligation imposed in connection with the Order, is not in accordance with law and requesting a modification of the Order or an exemption from the Order. The petitioner is afforded the opportunity for a hearing on the petition. After a hearing, the Secretary would rule on the petition. The Act provides that the district courts of the United States in any district in which such person is an inhabitant, or has his principal place of business, has jurisdiction to review the Secretary’s ruling on the petition, if a complaint for this purpose is filed within 20 days after the date of the entry of the ruling. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Agricultural Marketing Service has determined that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities as defined by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), because it only adjusts representation on the Board to reflect changes in production levels that have occurred since the Board was reapportioned in 2003. The purpose of the RFA is to fit regulatory actions to the scale of businesses subject to such actions in order that small businesses will not be unduly burdened. As such, these changes will not impact on persons subject to the program. There are an estimated 663,800 soybean producers and an estimated 10,000 first purchasers who collect the assessment, most of whom would be considered small entities under the criteria established by the Small Business Administration (13 CFR 121.601). Paperwork Reduction Act In accordance with OMB regulations [5 CFR part 1320] that implement the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 [44 U.S. C. Chapter 35], the information collection and recordkeeping requirements contained in the Order and Rules and Regulations have previously been approved by OMB under OMB control number 0581–0093. Background and Proposed Changes The Act (7 U.S.C. 6301–6311) provides for the establishment of a coordinated program of promotion and research designed to strengthen the soybean industry’s position in the marketplace, and to maintain and expand domestic and foreign markets and uses for soybeans and soybean products. The program is financed by an assessment of 0.5 percent of the net market price of soybeans sold by producers. Pursuant to the Act, an Order was made effective July 9, 1991. The Order established a Board of 60 members. For purposes of establishing the Board, the United States was divided into 31 geographic units. Representation on the Board from each unit was determined by the level of production in each unit. The Secretary appointed the initial Board on July 11, 1991. The Board is composed of soybean producers. Section 1220.201(c) of the Order provides that at the end of each three (3) year period, the Board shall review soybean production levels in the geographic units throughout the United States. The Board may recommend to the Secretary modification in the levels of production necessary for Board membership for each unit. Section 1220.201(d) of the Order provides that at the end of each three (3) year period, the Secretary must review the volume of production of each unit and adjust the boundaries of any unit and the number of Board members from each such unit as necessary to conform with the criteria set forth in § 1220.201(e): (1) To the extent practicable, States with annual average soybean production of less than 3,000,000 bushels shall be grouped into geographically contiguous units, each of which has a combined production level equal to or greater than 3,000,000 bushels, and each such group shall be entitled to at least one member on the Board; (2) units with at least 3,000,000 bushels, but fewer than 15,000,000 bushels shall be entitled to one board member; (3) units with 15,000,000 bushels or more but fewer than 70,000,000 bushels shall be entitled to two Board members; (4) units with 70,000,000 bushels or more but fewer than 200,000,000 bushels shall be entitled to three Board members; and (5) units with 200,000,000 bushels or more shall be entitled to four Board members. Proposed representation on the Board, which would be 68 members, is based on average production levels for the years 2001–2005 (excluding the crops in years in which production was the highest and in which production was the lowest) as reported by the Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service in the ‘‘Crop Production 2005 Summary’’, which was published in January 2006. The number of geographical units would remain at 30. As a result of Florida recently being decertified as a Qualified State Soybean Board, Florida will become a part of the Eastern Region. This proposed rule would adjust representation on the Board as follows: Current representation rmajette on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS1 State Nebraska ..........................................................................................................................................................

The proposed AD would have required repetitive inspections for cracks and corrosion of the areas behind the scuff plates below the passenger/crew doors and bulk cargo door, and repair of any cracked or corroded part. The proposed AD also would have required repetitive inspections for cracks of the holes of the corner doublers, the fail-safe ring, and the door frames of the passenger/crew door structures. Since the proposed AD was issued, we have determined that that the proposed inspections and terminating action are essentially identical to those of another existing AD. Accordingly, the proposed AD is withdrawn. You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at https:// dms.dot.gov, or in person at the Docket Management Facility office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The Docket Management Facility office (telephone (800) 647–5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif Building at the U.S. Department of Transportation, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Room PL–401, 1 Washington, DC.

ACTION: Proposed rule; withdrawal. Jkt 208001 ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 41743 98055–4056; telephone (425) 227–1622; fax (425) 227–1149. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We proposed to amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) with a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for a new AD for certain Airbus Model A310–200 and –300 series airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on November 21, 2005 (70 FR 70048). The NPRM would have required repetitive inspections for cracks and corrosion of the areas behind the scuff plates below the passenger/crew doors and bulk cargo door, and repair of any cracked or corroded part. The NPRM also would have required repetitive inspections for cracks of the holes of the corner doublers, the fail-safe ring, and the door frames of the passenger/crew door structures. The NPRM resulted from reports of corrosion behind the scuff plates at passenger/crew doors and the bulk cargo door and fatigue cracks on the corner doublers of the forward and aft passenger/crew door frames. The proposed actions were intended to prevent such corrosion and fatigue cracking, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the door surroundings. Actions Since NPRM Was Issued Since we issued the NPRM, we realized that we had previously issued AD 98–16–06, amendment 39–10682 (63 FR 40819, July 31, 1998), for all Airbus Model A310 series airplanes. That AD requires inspections of the lower door surrounding structure to detect cracks and corrosion, and repair if necessary. That AD also requires inspections to detect cracking of the holes of the corner doublers, the fail-safe ring, and the door frames of the door structures; and repair if necessary. In addition, that AD also provides for an optional terminating action for certain inspections. FAA’s Conclusions Upon further consideration, we have determined that the inspections and terminating action in AD 98–16–06 are essentially identical to those specified in the NPRM. We are considering superseding AD 98–16–06 to mandate the optional terminating action and refer to the latest service information. Accordingly, the NPRM is withdrawn. Regulatory Impact Since this action only withdraws an NPRM, it is neither a proposed nor a final rule and therefore is not covered under Executive Order 12866, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, or DOT E:\FR\FM\24JYP1.SGM 24JYP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Executive Order 12866

    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has waived the review 
process required by Executive Order 12866 for this action.

Executive Order 12988

    This rule was reviewed under Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice 
Reform. It is not intended to have a retroactive effect. This rule 
would not preempt any State or local laws, regulations, or policies 
unless they present an irreconcilable conflict with this rule.
    The Soybean Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Act (Act) 
provides that administrative proceedings must be exhausted before 
parties may file suit in court. Under Sec.  1971 of the Act, a person 
subject to the Order may file a petition with the Secretary stating 
that the Order, any provision of the Order, or any obligation imposed 
in connection with the Order, is not in accordance with law and 
requesting a modification of the Order or an exemption from the Order. 
The petitioner is afforded the opportunity for a hearing on the 
petition. After a hearing, the Secretary would rule on the petition. 
The Act provides that the district courts of the United States in any 
district in which such person is an inhabitant, or has his principal 
place of business, has jurisdiction to review the Secretary's ruling on 
the petition, if a complaint for this purpose is filed within 20 days 
after the date of the entry of the ruling.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Agricultural Marketing Service has determined that this rule 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities as defined by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 
601 et seq.), because it only adjusts representation on the Board to 
reflect changes in production levels that have occurred since the Board 
was reapportioned in 2003. The purpose of the RFA is to fit regulatory 
actions to the scale of businesses subject to such actions in order 
that small businesses will not be unduly burdened. As such, these 
changes will not impact on persons subject to the program.
    There are an estimated 663,800 soybean producers and an estimated 
10,000 first purchasers who collect the assessment, most of whom would 
be considered small entities under the criteria established by the 
Small Business Administration (13 CFR 121.601).

Paperwork Reduction Act

    In accordance with OMB regulations [5 CFR part 1320] that implement 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 [44 U.S. C. Chapter 35], the 
information collection and recordkeeping requirements contained in the 
Order and Rules and Regulations have previously been approved by OMB 
under OMB control number 0581-0093.

Background and Proposed Changes

    The Act (7 U.S.C. 6301-6311) provides for the establishment of a 
coordinated program of promotion and research designed to strengthen 
the soybean industry's position in the marketplace, and to maintain and 
expand domestic and foreign markets and uses for soybeans and soybean 
products. The program is financed by an assessment of 0.5 percent of 
the net market price of soybeans sold by producers. Pursuant to the 
Act, an Order was made effective July 9, 1991. The Order established a 
Board of 60 members. For purposes of establishing the Board, the United 
States was divided into 31 geographic units. Representation on the 
Board from each unit was determined by the level of production in each 
unit. The Secretary appointed the initial Board on July 11, 1991. The 
Board is composed of soybean producers.
    Section 1220.201(c) of the Order provides that at the end of each 
three (3) year period, the Board shall review soybean production levels 
in the geographic units throughout the United States. The Board may 
recommend to the Secretary modification in the levels of production 
necessary for Board membership for each unit.
    Section 1220.201(d) of the Order provides that at the end of each 
three (3) year period, the Secretary must review the volume of 
production of each unit and adjust the boundaries of any unit and the 
number of Board members from each such unit as necessary to conform 
with the criteria set forth in Sec.  1220.201(e): (1) To the extent 
practicable, States with annual average soybean production of less than 
3,000,000 bushels shall be grouped into geographically contiguous 
units, each of which has a combined production level equal to or 
greater than 3,000,000 bushels, and each such group shall be entitled 
to at least one member on the Board; (2) units with at least 3,000,000 
bushels, but fewer than 15,000,000 bushels shall be entitled to one 
board member; (3) units with 15,000,000 bushels or more but fewer than 
70,000,000 bushels shall be entitled to two Board members; (4) units 
with 70,000,000 bushels or more but fewer than 200,000,000 bushels 
shall be entitled to three Board members; and (5) units with 
200,000,000 bushels or more shall be entitled to four Board members.
    Proposed representation on the Board, which would be 68 members, is 
based on average production levels for the years 2001-2005 (excluding 
the crops in years in which production was the highest and in which 
production was the lowest) as reported by the Department of 
Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service in the ``Crop 
Production 2005 Summary'', which was published in January 2006.
    The number of geographical units would remain at 30. As a result of 
Florida recently being decertified as a Qualified State Soybean Board, 
Florida will become a part of the Eastern Region.
    This proposed rule would adjust representation on the Board as 
follows:
