Now, at the request of interested parties, the Commission is extending the comment period to September 7, 2006. DATES: Comments must be received by September 7, 2006. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to Eileen A. Donovan, Acting Secretary, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street, NW., Washington, DC 20581. Comments may also be submitted via E-mail at secretary@cftc.gov. ‘‘Regulatory Governance’’ must be in the subject field of responses submitted via E-mail, and clearly indicated in written 1 71 FR 38740 (July 7, 2006).

Division of Market Oversight, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street, NW., Washington, DC 20581. On July 7, 2006, the Commission published and sought public comment on proposed Acceptable Practices for Section 5(d)(15) of the Act (‘‘Core Principle 15’’). The proposed Acceptable Practices would provide designated contract markets (‘‘DCMs’’) with a safe harbor for compliance with selected aspects of Core Principle 15’s requirement that they minimize conflicts of interest in their decision-making. The Commission’s proposal contains four parts. First, the Board Composition Acceptable Practice proposes that DCMs minimize potential conflicts of interest by maintaining governing boards composed of at least fifty percent ‘‘public’’ directors. Second, the proposed Regulatory Oversight Committee Acceptable Practice calls upon DCMs to establish board-level Regulatory Oversight Committees, composed solely of public directors, to oversee regulatory functions. Third, the Disciplinary Panel Acceptable Practice proposes that each disciplinary panel at all DCMs include at least one public participant, and that no panel be dominated by any group or class of exchange members. Finally, the proposed Acceptable Practices provide a definition of ‘‘public’’ for DCM directors and for members of disciplinary panels. By letters dated July 14 and July 17, 2006, the Chicago Board of Trade (‘‘CBOT’’) and Chicago Mercantile Exchange (‘‘CME’’), respectively, requested that the original comment period be extended. CBOT requested an extension to at least September 6, and CME requested an extension to at least September 7. Recognizing the significance of the issues raised in the proposed Acceptable Practices, and to encourage the submission of meaningful comments, the Commission has decided to grant the requests. The comment period for the Commission’s proposed Acceptable Practices for Section 5(d)(15) of the Act is hereby extended to September 7, 2006.

These devices use wireless technologies for increasingly sophisticated and beneficial health care applications. Such applications currently include cardiac defibrillators for heart patients and real-time blood sugar monitoring devices for diabetics, and may, in the future, include applications as diverse as brain, muscle and nerve stimulation techniques for treating an array of conditions from Parkinson’s disease to severe chronic depression. The Commission tentatively concludes that modifying its current rules and designating an additional two megahertz of spectrum in the adjacent 401–402 MHz and 405–406 MHz bands) would appropriately provide needed capacity and more flexible operating rules for beneficial medical radio communication devices and thereby serve the public interest.

Background

    CBP published a document in the Federal Register (71 FR 40035) on 
July 14, 2006, proposing to amend the CBP Regulations pertaining to the 
electronic transmission of passenger manifests for commercial aircraft 
arriving in and departing from the United States and of passenger and 
crew manifests for commercial vessels departing from the United States. 
The proposed changes were designed to implement the mandate of the 
Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 to require 
screening of aircraft passengers and vessel passengers and crew 
traveling to and from the United States against a government 
established terrorist watch list prior to departure. Thus, the proposed 
rule provides air carriers a choice to make manifest transmissions 
either for each passenger as passengers check in for the flight, up to 
but no later than 15 minutes prior to departure, referred to as APIS 
Quick Query (AQQ), or in batch form (a complete manifest containing 
data for all passengers) no later than 60 minutes prior to departure, 
referred to as APIS 60. The proposed rule also provides for vessel 
carriers transmitting passenger and crew manifests no later than 60 
minutes prior to the vessel's departure from the United States. In 
addition, the proposed rule proposes to change the definition of 
``departure'' for aircraft to mean the moment the aircraft pushes back 
from the gate to commence its approach to the point of takeoff (as 
opposed to the moment the wheels are drawn up into the aircraft just 
after takeoff).
    The document invited the public to comment on the proposal, 
including the Regulatory Assessment containing an analysis of the 
expected economic impact of the changes. The Regulatory Assessment is 
posted on http://www.regulations.gov and on the CBP Web site at http://
www.cbp.gov (it is also summarized in the proposed rule). Comments on 
the proposed rule were requested on or before August 14, 2006.

Extension of Comment Period

    In response to the proposed rule published in the Federal Register, 
CBP has received comments from the Air Transport Association (ATA), the 
Air Carrier Association of America (ACAA), and the International Air 
Transport Association (IATA), requesting an extension of the comment 
period for an additional 60 days. CBP has determined to grant the 
requests for extension. Accordingly, the period of time for the 
submission of comments is being extended 60 days. Comments are now due 
on or before October 12, 2006.
