Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These amended special conditions are issued for the Aviation Technology Group (ATG), Inc., Javelin Model 100 Series airplane. This is an amendment to special condition 23-195-SC, which was published on February 1, 2007 (72 FR 4618), for certain novel or unusual design features associated with engine location, certain performance, flight characteristics and operating limitations. The original final special conditions were more generic and contained requirement language that was not necessary for jet airplanes. This amendment also corrects several references to part 23 sections to be consistent with these special conditions. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature(s) associated with engine location, certain performance, flight characteristics and operating limitations necessary for this type of airplane. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature.

Agency: Department of Education
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (Privacy Act), the Department of Education (Department) publishes this notice of a new system of records entitled ``Impact Evaluation of Mandatory-Random Student Drug Testing'' (18-13-16). This evaluation was commissioned by the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance at the Department's Institute of Education Sciences (IES). It will be conducted under a contract that was awarded by IES in July 2005. IES has been collaborating with the Department's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools (OSDFS) to coordinate the study of mandatory-random drug testing interventions in schools. The study will address the following questions: (1) Do high school students who are subject to mandatory-random drug testing (e.g., athletes, participants in competitive extra- curricular activities, etc.) report less use of tobacco, alcohol, and illicit substances compared to comparable students in high schools without mandatory-random drug testing policies? (2) Do students in high schools with mandatory-random drug testing policies, but who are not subject to such testing (e.g., non-athletes, students who do not participate in competitive extra-curricular activities, etc.), report less use of tobacco, alcohol, and illicit substances compared to comparable students in high schools without mandatory-random drug testing policies? The system will contain information about two cohorts of approximately 200 high school students in each of (i) 26 high schools operating the mandatory-random drug testing program, and (ii) 26 high schools that will not operate the program but that will serve as control high schools for the purposes of this evaluation. The total number of high school students included in this system of records will be approximately 10,400 for each of school years 2006-07 and 2007-08. The 52 participating high schools will be from school districts that are recipients of the Mandatory-Random Drug Testing Program grants that were announced in September 2006 by OSDFS. The system of records will include information about the high school students participating in the evaluation, including the students' names; addresses; demographic information such as race/ethnicity, gender, age, educational background; and attitudes and beliefs concerning substance use, and substance use itself.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747 and 767 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-5928
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 747 and 767 airplanes. The original NPRM would have required reworking the electrical bonding between the airplane structure and the pump housing of the outboard boost pumps in the main fuel tank of certain Boeing Model 747 airplanes, and between the airplane structure and the pump housing of the override/jettison pumps in the left and right wing center auxiliary fuel tanks of certain Boeing Model 767 airplanes. The original NPRM would also have required related investigative actions and corrective actions if necessary. The original NPRM resulted from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This action revises the original NPRM by adding an inspection requirement for certain Model 747 airplanes, and by specifying cold-working the fastener holes for certain other Model 747 airplanes. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent insufficient electrical bonding, which could result in a potential of ignition sources inside the fuel tanks, and which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.

Notice of Availability of a Supplement to the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan and Natural Community Conservation Plan, Riverside County, CA
Document Number: E7-5914
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-03-30
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
This notice announces the availability of the Recirculated Draft Coachella Valley Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan/ Natural Community Conservation Plan (MSHCP), Supplement to the Final Environmental Impact Statement/Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR), and Implementing Agreement for public review and comment. The Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG), Coachella Valley Conservation Commission, County of Riverside, Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, Riverside County Parks and Open Space District, Riverside County Waste Management District, Coachella Valley Water District, Imperial Irrigation District, California Department of Transportation, California Department of Parks and Recreation, Coachella Valley Mountains Conservancy, and the cities of Cathedral City, Coachella, Indian Wells, Indio, La Quinta, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Rancho Mirage (Applicants) applied to the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) for an incidental take permit pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The Applicants also seek a Section 2835 permit under the California Natural Community Conservation Planning Act of 2002. The Applicants are requesting a permit to incidentally take 22 animal species and seeking assurances for 5 plant species, including 17 unlisted species should any of them become listed under the Act during the proposed 75-year term of the permit. The permit is needed to authorize incidental take of listed animal species (including harm, injury, and harassment) during development in the approximately 1.10 million-acre (1,719-square mile) Plan Area in the Coachella Valley of Riverside County, California. The MSHCP also incorporates a Public Use and Trails Plan which includes proposals that address non-motorized recreation activities on Federal and non-Federal lands in the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is a Cooperating Agency in this planning process and will use this EIS/EIR to make decisions on BLM-administered public lands pertaining to trail use in the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains. The proposals constitute activity (implementation) level actions in furtherance of the California Desert Conservation Area Plan (1980), as amended, and the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument Management Plan (2004). The BLM will issue a separate Record of Decision regarding non-motorized recreation activities on public lands. A Supplement to the Final Environmental Impact Statement, which is the Federal portion of the EIS/EIR, has been prepared jointly by the Service and CVAG, along with the biological consultant, to analyze the impacts of the MSHCP and is also available for public review. The analyses provided in the EIS/EIR are intended to inform the public of the proposed action, alternatives, and associated impacts; disclose the direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental effects of the proposed action and each of the alternatives; and indicate any irreversible commitment of resources that would result from implementation of the proposed action. All of the alternatives in the EIS/EIR are the same as the alternatives identified in the Final MSHCP and Final EIS/EIS, dated February 6, 2006, with one exception: the Preferred Alternative without the City of Palm Springs is no longer included. The Service and the cooperating agency issued a notice of intent to prepare an EIS/EIR for the proposed MSHCP, on June 28, 2000 (65 FR 39920); a notice of availability of the Draft EIS/EIR for the proposed MSHCP on November 5, 2004 (69 FR 64581); and a notice of availability of the Final EIS/EIR for the proposed MSHCP on April 21, 2006 (71 FR 20719). The Service is issuing this notice to advise the public of revisions to the MSHCP and associated EIS/EIR which includes the following primary changes: (1) Removing the City of Desert Hot Springs as an Applicant; (2) including a Riverside County Flood Control/Water Conservation District flood control project as a Covered Activity within the Morongo Wash area, if the project meets the MSHCP's biological goals and objectives for the Covered Species and the biological goals and objectives for maintaining fluvial sand transport and providing an adequate corridor for habitat connectivity; (3) identifying the revised Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains Trails Plan as the chosen trails management alternative in the EIS/EIR. The Plan is structured to be consistent with larger recovery efforts for the bighorn sheep and takes an adaptive management approach to balancing its goals of: (a) Minimizing the risk of potential adverse impacts to Peninsular bighorn sheep from recreational activities, and (b) providing recreational opportunities for hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers; and (4) identifying changes to conservation area boundaries to reflect ``like exchanges'' approved by the applicants since the publication of the Final MSHCP, dated February 6, 2006. The ``like exchanges'' include Citrus Ranch, Lumkes Family Trust, Nott, Indio Water Authority Reservoirs, and the City of Cathedral City.

Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-135 Airplanes and Model EMB-145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR, -145XR, -145MP, and -145EP Airplanes
Document Number: E7-5911
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier NPRM for certain EMBRAER Model EMB-135 airplanes and Model EMB-145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR, -145XR, - 145MP, and -145EP airplanes. The original NPRM would have required replacing the metallic tubes enclosing the vent and pilot valve wires in the left- and right-hand wing fuel tanks with non-conductive hoses. The original NPRM resulted from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This action revises the original NPRM by adding airplanes to the applicability. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent an ignition source inside the fuel tank that could ignite fuel vapor and cause a fuel tank explosion and loss of the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330-201, -202, -203, -223, -243, -301, -321, -322, -323, -341, -342, and -343 Airplanes; and Model A340-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-5909
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as keel beam rupture, which affects the structural integrity of the area. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800 and -900 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-5907
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800 and -900 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require an inspection of the fillet sealant at the inboard and outboard sides of the receptacles in the wheel wells of the main landing gear, and related investigative/ corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD results from reports of in-production airplanes with missing or insufficient fillet sealant around the receptacles at the disconnect bracket. We are proposing this AD to prevent corrosion damage due to missing or insufficient fillet sealant. Such corrosion could result in insufficient electrical bonding between the connectors and the disconnect bracket, and consequent loss of the shielding that protects the wire bundles from lightning, electromagnetic interference (EMI), and high intensity radiated field (HIRF). Loss of lightning, EMI, and HIRF protection at those receptacles could cause failure of multiple electrical systems and subsequent loss of several critical control systems that are necessary for safe flight. In addition, a lightning strike could cause arcing in the fuel tank; this potential ignition source, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.

The Courts' decision enjoined the Corps from continuing with the project until additional compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is completed. Accordingly, the Corps is preparing a SEIS.

Delta-Mendota Canal Recirculation Project, Calaveras, Contra Costa, Fresno, Kings, Merced, San Benito, San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne Counties, CA
Document Number: E7-5889
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-03-30
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, Reclamation Bureau
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) intend to prepare an EIS/EIR for the Delta-Mendota Canal (DMC) Recirculation Project. Reclamation is the Federal lead agency for NEPA and DWR is the State lead agency for CEQA. The purpose of the project is to prepare a feasibility study of the DMC Recirculation Project that will evaluate the costs, benefits, feasibility, and impacts of possibly recirculating water from the DMC Canal for release to the San Joaquin River. Recirculation may provide additional flows for fishery objectives and may help to meet San Joaquin River water quality objectives, while reducing the reliance on the New Melones Reservoir for water releases. As part of the feasibility study process, a Draft EIS/EIR is expected to be available in 2008.
