ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to replace the pick-up collar support and nylon screws, of the Cirrus Airplane Parachute System (CAPS), with a new design pick-up collar support and custom tension screws. This proposed AD results from a CDC report of an inflight CAPS activation where the parachute failed to successfully deploy. We are proposing this AD to correct pick-up collar support fasteners of the CAPS, which could result in the premature separation of the collar. This condition, if not corrected, could result in the parachute failing to successfully deploy (CAPS failure). DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by June 18, 2007. ADDRESSES: Use one of the following addresses to comment on this proposed AD: • DOT Docket Web site: Go to http://dms.dot.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, E:\FR\FM\17MYP1.SGM 17MYP1

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

SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is making available 
preliminary draft rule language to amend its regulations to revise the 
security requirements and material control and accounting (MC&A)

of this rulemaking is to ensure effective security measures are in 
place for the protection of high-level radioactive waste given the

specific training enhancements, improved access authorization, and 
enhancements to defensive strategies will be incorporated. The proposed 
rule will reinstate the alcohol and drug provisions of the fitness-for-
duty provisions to a GROA. The proposed rule will also impose the 
fatigue portion of the fitness-for-duty requirements for the security 
personnel at a GROA. The proposed rule will establish general 
performance objectives and corresponding system capabilities for the 
GROA MC&A program, with a focus on strengthening, streamlining, and
