Download as PDF 58268 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 198 / Monday, October 15, 2007 / Proposed Rules is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. Regulatory Findings We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify this proposed regulation: 1. Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; 2. Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and 3. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Safety. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new AD: Rolls-Royce plc: Docket No. FAA–2007– 28059; Directorate Identifier 2007–NE– 13–AD. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with PROPOSALS Comments Due Date (a) We must receive comments by November 14, 2007. Affected ADs (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Rolls-Royce plc RB211 Trent 553–61, 553A2–61, 556–61, 556A2–61, 556B–61, 560–61, 560A2–61, 768–60, 772–60, 772B–60, 772C–60, 875–17, 877–17, 884–17, 884B–17, 892–17, 892B–17, VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:33 Oct 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 and 895–17 turbofan engines. These engines are installed on, but not limited to, Airbus A330, A340–500, A340–600, and Boeing 777 series airplanes. Reason (d) This action is necessary following the discovery of IP Compressor Rotor rear balance land cracking on an in-service Trent 800 engine. Stress analysis of the damaged rotor has shown a possible threat to the rotor integrity, the cracking therefore presents a potential unsafe condition. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI. We are proposing this AD to detect cracking on the intermediate pressure (IP) Compressor rotor rear balance land. IP compressor rotor rear balance land cracking can lead to uncontained failure of the rotor and damage to the airplane. Actions and Compliance (e) Unless already done, do the following actions: Inspection—On-Wing (1) Applicable to RR Trent 800 engines not previously inspected per Rolls-Royce RB211 Propulsion System Alert Non Modification Service Bulletin RB.211–72–AF260, Revision 1, dated January 17, 2007 or original issue, dated October17, 2006: Within 400 flight cycles of the Effective Date of this AD inspect the IP Compressor rotor rear balance land for cracks in accordance with Rolls-Royce RB211 Propulsion System Alert Non Modification Service Bulletin RB.211–72–AF313, dated February 22, 2007 section 3 Accomplishment Instructions. Engines on which cracking is found should be rejected from service. Inspection—In-Shop (2) Applicable to RR Trent 500, 700 and 800 engines at each shop visit in which the engine is sufficiently disassembled to access the IP Compressor Module rear face: Inspect the IP Compressor rotor rear balance land for cracks in accordance with Rolls-Royce RB211 Propulsion System Alert Non Modification Service Bulletin RB.211–72–AF260, Revision 1, dated January 17, 2007, or original issue section 3 Accomplishment Instructions. Other FAA AD Provisions (f) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, Engine Certification Office, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

[FR Doc. E7–20242 Filed 10–12–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 49 CFR Part 541 [Docket No. NHTSA 2007–28874] Preliminary Theft Data; Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Department of Transportation. ACTION: Publication of preliminary theft data; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document requests comments on data about passenger motor vehicle thefts that occurred in calendar year (CY) 2005 including theft rates for existing passenger motor vehicle lines manufactured in model year (MY) 2005. The preliminary theft data indicate that the vehicle theft rate for CY/MY 2005 vehicles (1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles) increased by 1.1 percent from the theft rate for CY/MY 2004 vehicles (1.83 thefts per thousand vehicles). Publication of these data fulfills NHTSA’s statutory obligation to periodically obtain accurate and timely theft data, and publish the information for review and comment. DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before December 14, 2007. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments (identified by DOT Docket No. NHTSA– 2007–28874) by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the online instructions for submitting comments. • Mail: Docket Management Facility: U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, Washington, DC 20590–0001. • Hand Delivery or Courier: West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. • Fax: 202–493–2251. Instructions: For detailed instructions on submitting comments and additional information on the rulemaking process, see the Public Participation heading of E:\FR\FM\15OCP1.SGM 15OCP1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 198 / Monday, October 15, 2007 / Proposed Rules VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:33 Oct 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 motor vehicle theft. The central feature of this program is the Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR Part 541. The standard specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles. The agency is required by 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4) to periodically obtain, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely theft data, and publish the data for review and comment. To fulfill the § 33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the preliminary theft data for CY 2005 the most recent calendar year for which data are available. In calculating the 2005 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same procedures it used in calculating the MY 2004 theft rates. (For 2004 theft data calculations, see 71 FR 59400, October 10, 2006.) As in all previous reports, NHTSA’s data were based on information provided to the agency by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a governmental system that receives vehicle theft information from nearly 23,000 criminal justice agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of self- PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4725 insured and uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data sources. The 2005 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2005 vehicles of that line stolen during calendar year 2005, by the total number of vehicles in that line manufactured for MY 2005, as reported by manufacturers to the Environmental Protection Agency. The preliminary 2005 theft data show an increase in the vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2004. The preliminary theft rate for MY 2005 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2005 increased to 1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, an increase of 1.1 percent from the rate of 1.83 thefts per thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2004 vehicles in CY 2004. For MY 2005 vehicles, out of a total of 233 vehicle lines, 24 lines had a theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the established median theft rate for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 1994). Of the 24 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 21 are passenger car lines, two are multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and one is a light-duty truck line.

[FR Doc. 07–5022 Filed 10–12–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–59–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Fish and Wildlife Service 50 CFR Part 92 RIN 1018–AV53 Migratory Bird Subsistence Harvest in Alaska; Harvest Regulations for Migratory Birds in Alaska During the 2008 Season Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior. ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service or we) is publishing migratory bird subsistence harvest regulations in Alaska for the 2008 season. This proposed rule establishes regulations that prescribe dates when harvesting of birds may occur, species that can be taken, and methods and means excluded from use. These regulations were developed under a Comanagement process involving the Service, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and Alaska Native representatives. These regulations enable the continuation of customary and traditional subsistence uses of migratory birds in Alaska. The rulemaking is necessary because the regulations governing the subsistence harvest of migratory birds in Alaska are subject to annual review. This rulemaking proposes region-specific regulations that go into effect on April 2, 2008, and expire on August 31, 2008. DATES: Comments on the proposed subsistence harvest regulations for migratory birds in Alaska must be submitted by December 14, 2007. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments on this proposed rule by any of the following methods: 1. U.S. mail or hand delivery: Regional Director, Alaska Region, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 1011 E. Tudor Road, Anchorage, AK 99503. 2. Fax: (907) 786–3306. 3. E-mail: ambcc@fws.gov. 4. Federal e-rulemaking portal: http://www.regulations.gov.

Tudor FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:33 Oct 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 Road, Mail Stop 201, Anchorage, AK 99503. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: How Do I Find the History of These Regulations? Background information, including past events leading to this action, accomplishments since the Migratory Bird Treaties with Canada and Mexico were amended, and a history addressing conservation issues can be found in the following Federal Register notices: August 16, 2002 (67 FR 53511); July 21, 2003 (68 FR 43010); April 2, 2004 (69 FR 17318); April 8, 2005 (70 FR 18244); February 28, 2006 (71 FR 10404); and April 11, 2007 (72 FR 18318). These documents are readily available at http://alaska.fws.gov/ambcc/ regulations.htm. Why Is This Current Rulemaking Necessary? This current rulemaking is necessary because the migratory bird harvest season is closed unless opened, and the regulations governing subsistence harvest of migratory birds in Alaska are subject to public review and annual approval. The Alaska Migratory Bird Comanagement Council (Co-management Council) held a meeting in April 2007 to develop recommendations for changes effective for the 2008 harvest season. These recommendations were presented to the Service Regulations Committee (SRC) on August 1 and 2, 2007, and were approved. This rule proposes regulations for the taking of migratory birds for subsistence uses in Alaska during 2008. This rule lists migratory bird species that are proposed to be open or closed to harvest, as well as proposed season openings and closures by region. How Will the Service Continue To Ensure That the Subsistence Harvest Will Not Raise Overall Migratory Bird Harvest? The Service has an emergency closure provision (§ 92.21), so that if any significant increases in harvest are documented for one or more species in a region, an emergency closure can be requested and implemented. Eligibility to harvest under the regulations established in 2003 was limited to permanent residents, regardless of race, in villages located within the Alaska Peninsula, Kodiak Archipelago, the Aleutian Islands and in areas north and west of the Alaska Range (§ 92.5). These geographical restrictions opened the initial subsistence migratory bird harvest to only about 13 percent of Alaska residents. High-population areas such as Anchorage, the Matanuska- PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Susitna and Fairbanks North Star boroughs, the Kenai Peninsula roaded area, the Gulf of Alaska roaded area, and Southeast Alaska were excluded from the eligible subsistence harvest areas. Based on petitions requesting inclusion in the harvest, in 2004, we added 13 additional communities based on criteria set forth in § 92.5(c). These communities were Gulkana, Gakona, Tazlina, Copper Center, Mentasta Lake, Chitina, Chistochina, Tatitlek, Chenega, Port Graham, Nanwalek, Tyonek, and Hoonah, with a combined population of 2,766. In 2005, we added three additional communities for glaucouswinged gull egg gathering only, based on petitions requesting inclusion. These southeastern communities were Craig, Hydaburg, and Yakutat, with a combined population of 2,459. In 2007, we have enacted the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s (ADF&G) request to expand the Fairbanks North Star Borough excluded area to include the Central Interior area. This excluded the following communities from participation in this harvest: Big Delta/Fort Greely, Healy, McKinley Park/Village and Ferry, with a combined population of 2,812. These removed communities reduced the percentage of the State population included in the subsistence harvest to 13 percent. Subsistence harvest has been monitored for the past 15 years through the use of annual household surveys in the most heavily used subsistence harvest areas, e.g., Yukon/Kuskokwim Delta. Continuation of this monitoring enables tracking of any major changes or trends in levels of harvest and user participation after legalization of the harvest. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved the information collection and assigned OMB control number 1018–0124, which expires on January 31, 2010. What Birds Will Be Open To Harvest in 2008? At the request of the North Slope Borough Fish and Game Management Committee, the Co-management Council recommended continuing into 2008 the provisions originally established in 2005 to allow subsistence use of yellowbilled loons inadvertently caught in subsistence fishing (gill) nets on the North Slope. Yellow-billed loons are culturally important for the Inupiat Eskimo of the North Slope for use in traditional dance regalia. A maximum of 20 yellow-billed loons may be caught in 2008 pursuant to this provision. Individual reporting to the North Slope Borough Department of Wildlife is required by the end of each season.

SUMMARY: This document requests comments on data about passenger motor 
vehicle thefts that occurred in calendar year (CY) 2005 including theft 
rates for existing passenger motor vehicle lines manufactured in model 
year (MY) 2005. The preliminary theft data indicate that the vehicle 
theft rate for CY/MY 2005 vehicles (1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles) 
increased by 1.1 percent from the theft rate for CY/MY 2004 vehicles 
(1.83 thefts per thousand vehicles).
    Publication of these data fulfills NHTSA's statutory obligation to 
periodically obtain accurate and timely theft data, and publish the 
information for review and comment.

International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 1200

number is (202) 366-0846. Her fax number is (202) 493-2990.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA administers a program for reducing 
motor vehicle theft. The central feature of this program is the Federal 
Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR Part 541. The standard 
specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle 
identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and 
replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles.
    The agency is required by 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4) to periodically 
obtain, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely theft data, 
and publish the data for review and comment. To fulfill the Sec.  
33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the preliminary theft data 
for CY 2005 the most recent calendar year for which data are available.
    In calculating the 2005 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same 
procedures it used in calculating the MY 2004 theft rates. (For 2004 
theft data calculations, see 71 FR 59400, October 10, 2006.) As in all 
previous reports, NHTSA's data were based on information provided to 
the agency by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a governmental system that 
receives vehicle theft information from nearly 23,000 criminal justice 
agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United 
States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of self-insured and 
uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data 
sources. The 2005 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by 
dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2005 vehicles of that line 
stolen during calendar year 2005, by the total number of vehicles in 
that line manufactured for MY 2005, as reported by manufacturers to the 
Environmental Protection Agency.
    The preliminary 2005 theft data show an increase in the vehicle 
theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2004. 
The preliminary theft rate for MY 2005 passenger vehicles stolen in 
calendar year 2005 increased to 1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles 
produced, an increase of 1.1 percent from the rate of 1.83 thefts per 
thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2004 vehicles in CY 2004. For MY 
2005 vehicles, out of a total of 233 vehicle lines, 24 lines had a 
theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the established 
median theft rate for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 1994). 
Of the 24 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 21 are 
passenger car lines, two are multipurpose passenger vehicle lines, and 
one is a light-duty truck line.

    In Table I, NHTSA has tentatively ranked each of the MY 2005 
vehicle lines in descending order of theft rate. Public comment is 
sought on the accuracy of the data, including the data for the 
production volumes of individual vehicle lines.
    Comments must not exceed 15 pages in length (49 CFR part 553.21). 
Attachments may be appended to these submissions without regard to the 
15 page limit. This limitation is intended to encourage commenters to 
detail their primary arguments in a concise fashion.
    If a commenter wishes to submit certain information under a claim 
of confidentiality, three copies of the complete submission, including 
purportedly confidential business information, should be submitted to 
the Chief Counsel, NHTSA, at the street address given above, and two 
copies from which the purportedly confidential information has been 
deleted should be submitted to Dockets. A request for confidentiality 
should be accompanied by a cover letter setting forth the information 
specified in the agency's confidential business information regulation. 
49 CFR part 512.
    All comments received before the close of business on the comment 
closing date indicated above for this document will be considered, and 
will be available for examination in the docket at the above address 
both before and after that date. To the extent possible, comments filed 
after the closing date will also be considered. Comments on this 
document will be available for inspection in the docket. NHTSA will 
continue to file relevant information as it becomes available for 
inspection in the docket after the closing date, and it is recommended 
that interested persons continue to examine the docket for new 
material.
    Those persons desiring to be notified upon receipt of their 
comments in the rules docket should enclose a self-addressed, stamped 
postcard in the envelope with their comments. Upon receiving the 
comments, the docket supervisor will return the postcard by mail.
    Privacy Act: Anyone is able to search the electronic form of all 
comments received into any of our dockets by the name of the individual 
submitting the comment (or signing the comment, if submitted on behalf 
of an association, business, labor union, etc.). You may review DOT's
