Expansion of a TRICARE Demonstration Project for the State of Alaska
Document Number: E7-14681
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-30
Agency: Office of the Secretary, Department of Defense
This notice is to advise interested parties of an expansion of a Military Health System (MHS) demonstration project entitled TRICARE Provider Reimbursement Demonstration Project for the State of Alaska. The original demonstration notice was published on November 20, 2006 (71 FR 67112-67113) and described a demonstration project to increase reimbursement for individual providers in the State of Alaska. The demonstration project will now also include increased reimbursement for health care services by hospitals that have been designated as Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) in the State of Alaska. TRICARE, under the demonstration project, will reimburse CAHs in a similar manner as they are reimbursed under Medicare. The expansion of the demonstration project will test the effect of this change on CAH provider participation in TRICARE, beneficiary access to care, cost of health care services, military medical readiness, morale and welfare. In particular, the demonstration will test whether the increased costs of provider payments are offset in whole or part by savings in travel costs, lost duty time, and other factors. This demonstration will be conducted under statutory authority provided in 10 U.S.C. 1092.
Partial Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule Revising the California State Implementation Plan, San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District
Document Number: E7-14679
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-30
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
On May 30, 2007 (72 FR 29886), EPA published a direct final approval of revisions to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concerned San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) Rule 4307, Boilers, Steam Generators and Process Heaters2.0 MMBtu/hr to 5.0 MMBtu/hr; Rule 4308, Boilers, Steam Generators and Process Heaters0.075 MMBtu/hr to 2.0 MMBtu/hr; Rule 4309, Dryers, Dehydrators, and Ovens; Rule 4352, Solid Fuel Fired Boilers, Steam Generators and Process Heaters; and Rule 4905, Natural Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Residential Central Furnaces. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comment. The direct final rule stated that if adverse comments were received by June 29, 2007, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA received timely adverse comments. Consequently, with this revision we are withdrawing the direct final approval of SJVAPCD Rule 4352. EPA will either address the comments in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal also published on May 30, 2007 (72 FR 29901), or repropose an alternative action. As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second comment period on a subsequent final action. The other rules approved in the May 30, 2007 direct final action, SJVAPCD Rules 4307, 4308, 4309, and 4905, are not affected by this partial withdrawal and are incorporated into the SIP as of the effective date of the May 30, 2007 direct final action.

Rules of Practice Before the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences in Ex Parte Appeals
Document Number: E7-14645
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-30

The proposed rules seek to provide examiners and Office reviewers with a clear and complete statement of an appellant's position at the time of filing an appeal brief so as to enhance the likelihood that appealed claims will be allowed without the necessity of further proceeding with the appeal, minimize the pendency of appeals before the Office, minimize the need for lengthy patent term adjustments in cases where claims become allowable as a result of an action by the Board in an appeal, provide uniform treatment of requests for an extension of time filed after an appeal brief is filed, and make the decision-making process more efficient.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 707 Airplanes and Model 720 and 720B Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-14638
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 707 airplanes and Model 720 and 720B series airplanes. This proposed AD would require identifying the material used in the elevator hinge support fittings of the horizontal stabilizer trailing edge, doing repetitive detailed inspections for cracking of the fittings and corrective actions if necessary, and doing an eventual terminating action. This proposed AD results from a report that stress corrosion cracking of the elevator hinge support fittings has been discovered on several Model 707 airplanes. We are proposing this AD to prevent cracking of the elevator hinge support fittings, which could reduce the elevator support stiffness and lead to in-flight airframe vibration, consequent damage to the elevator and horizontal stabilizer, and reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Hawker Beechcraft Model Hawker 800XP Airplanes
Document Number: E7-14637
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hawker Beechcraft Model Hawker 800XP airplanes. This proposed AD would require doing an inspection of panel DA wiring for clearance and for signs of chafing or exposed conductors, and repairing or replacing the wires and cable ties if necessary. This proposed AD results from reports of wire bundle interference in the DA panel, chafed wire bundles, and exposed conductors. We are proposing this AD to prevent chafing of wire bundles, which could cause an electrical short and consequent loss of several functions essential for safe flight and smoke or fire in the flight compartment and main cabin.
