ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) is amending its regulations to incorporate a number of technical and conforming amendments. They include clarifications and corrections of typographical errors. DATES: Effective Date: January 2, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sandra E. Evans, Legal Information Assistant (Regulations), (202) 906–6076, Regulations and Legislation Division, Chief Counsel’s Office, Office of Thrift Supervision, 1700 G Street, NW., Washington, DC 20552. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OTS is amending its regulations to incorporate a number of technical and conforming amendments. OTS is making the following miscellaneous changes: • Sections 558.1 and 558.2— Procedure upon taking possession; notice of appointment. OTS’s regulations at 12 CFR 558.1 provides that when OTS appoints a conservator or receiver, the conservator or receiver shall, upon taking possession of the institution: (1) Give notice of the appointment to any officer or employee of the institution who appears to be in charge at the institution’s principal office, and (2) serve a copy of the order of appointment upon the savings association or an existing conservator or receiver by leaving a copy of the order at the principal office or by handing a copy of the order to specified persons. This final rule modifies §§ 558.1 and 558.2 to increase administrative flexibility by providing that the Director of OTS will designate those persons or entities that will give notice and make service. In addition, reference to service on prior receivers is eliminated because the OTS may appoint only the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as a receiver of a savings association. • Section 563.43—Loans by savings associations to their executive officers, directors and principal shareholders. The final rule revises the introductory paragraph to remove the reference to subparts A and B of the Federal Reserve Board’s Regulation O (12 CFR Part 215) as Regulation O is no longer divided E:\FR\FM\02JAR1.SGM 02JAR1 18 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 1 / Wednesday, January 2, 2008 / Rules and Regulations into subparts. The introductory paragraph is also revised to remove the reference to § 215.13 since that section no longer exists. • Section 564.8—Appraisal policies and practices of savings associations and subsidiaries. The incorrect reference to § 563.172 in paragraph (a) ‘‘Introduction’’ is removed. • Section 567.5—Components of capital. Section 567.5(b)(1)(iv), which refers to net worth certificates, and section 567.5(b)(1)(v), which refers to income capital certificates, are obsolete and are removed. All of these certificates have been redeemed and no longer exist. • Section 567.12—Intangible assets, servicing assets, and credit-enhancing interest-only strips. The practice of grandfathering core deposit intangibles (CDIs) is no longer relevant because all CDIs were fully amortized as of 2002. Therefore, § 567.12(g) is removed. • Section 574.2(c)(3)—Definitions. The cross-reference to § 563b.2(a)(39) is corrected by replacing it with a crossreference to § 563b.25. Administrative Procedure Act; Riegle Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994 OTS finds that there is good cause to dispense with prior notice and comment on this final rule and with the 30-day delay of effective date mandated by the Administrative Procedure Act.1 OTS believes that these procedures are unnecessary and contrary to the public interest because the rule merely makes changes to agency procedures and technical changes to existing provisions. Because the amendments in the rule are not substantive, these changes will not affect savings associations. Section 302 of the Riegle Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994 provides that regulations that impose additional reporting, disclosure, or other new requirements may not take effect before the first day of the quarter following publication.2 This section does not apply because this final rule imposes no additional requirements and makes only technical changes to existing regulations. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES OTS has determined that this rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ for purposes of Executive Order 12866. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 OTS has determined that the requirements of this final rule will not result in expenditures by State, local, and tribal governments, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. Accordingly, a budgetary impact statement is not required under section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

ACTION: Final special conditions; request for comments. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: These special conditions are issued for AmSafe Aviation for a list of approved models. These airplanes, as modified by AmSafe Aviation, will have novel and unusual design features associated with the lap belt or shoulder harness portion of the safety belt, which contains an integrated airbag device. VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:41 Dec 31, 2007 Jkt 214001 The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate and appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the airworthiness standards. DATES: The effective date of these special conditions is December 26, 2007. Comments must be received on or before February 1, 2008. ADDRESSES: Mail two copies of your comments on these special conditions to: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Regional Counsel, ACE–7, Attention: Rules Docket, Docket No. CE285, 901 Locust, Room 506, Kansas City, Missouri 64106, or you may deliver two copies to the Regional Counsel at the above address. Mark your comments: Docket No. CE285. You may inspect comments in the Rules Docket weekdays, except Federal holidays, between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Bob Stegeman, Federal Aviation Administration, Small Airplane Directorate, Aircraft Certification Service, ACE–111, 901 Locust, Kansas City, Missouri, 816–329–4140, fax 816– 329–4090, e-mail Robert.Stegeman@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA has determined that notice and opportunity for prior public comment hereon are impracticable because these procedures would significantly delay issuance of the approval design and thus delivery of the affected aircraft. In addition, the substance of these special conditions has been subject to the public comment process in several prior instances with no substantive comments received. The FAA therefore finds that good cause exists for making these special conditions effective upon issuance. Comments Invited We invite interested persons to participate in the making of these proposed special conditions by submitting such written data, views, or arguments as they may desire. Identify the regulatory docket or notice number and submit the comments in duplicate to the address specified above. The most helpful comments reference a specific portion of the special conditions, explain the reason for any recommended change, and include supporting data. All communications received on or before the closing date for comments will be considered by the Administrator. The special conditions may be changed in light of the PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 19 comments received. All comments received will be available in the Rules Docket for examination by interested persons, both before and after the closing date for comments. A report summarizing each substantive public contact with FAA personnel concerning this rulemaking will be filed in the docket. Commenters wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments submitted in response to this notice must include a self-addressed, stamped postcard on which the following statement is made: ‘‘Comments to CE285.’’ The postcard will be date stamped and returned to the commenter. Background On March 8, 2007, AmSafe Aviation, 1043 North 47th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85043, applied for a supplemental type certificate for the installation of inflatable restraints in additional airplane models included herein that were certificated prior to the dynamic seat rule specified in 14 CFR part 23, § 23.562 and in agricultural airplanes. AmSafe Aviation has previously applied for and obtained an Approved Model List (AML) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of Inflatable Two-, Three-, Four- or FivePoint Restraint Safety Belts with an Integrated Airbag Device in airplanes certificated in the Part 23 Normal/ Utility categories. The current AML STC does not allow airbags in agricultural aircraft. However, AmSafe recently provided the FAA data showing the installation of inflatable restraints in agricultural airplanes would have a positive safety effect. This special condition amends the existing AML STC to include additional normal category aircraft and to allow airbag installation in agricultural aircraft. The inflatable restraint system is either a two-, three-, four-, or five-point safety belt restraint system consisting of a shoulder harness and a lap belt with an inflatable airbag attached to either the lap belt or the shoulder harness. The inflatable portion of the restraint system will rely on sensors to electronically activate the inflator for deployment. The inflatable restraint system will be made available on the pilot, co-pilot, and passenger seats of these airplanes. If an emergency landing occurs, the airbag will inflate and provide a protective cushion between the occupant’s head and structure within the airplane. This will reduce the potential for head and torso injury. The inflatable restraint behaves in a manner that is similar to an automotive airbag. However, in this case, the airbag is integrated into the lap or shoulder belt. E:\FR\FM\02JAR1.SGM 02JAR1

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) is amending its 
regulations to incorporate a number of technical and conforming 
amendments. They include clarifications and corrections of 
typographical errors.

DATES: Effective Date: January 2, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sandra E. Evans, Legal Information 
Assistant (Regulations), (202) 906-6076, Regulations and Legislation 
Division, Chief Counsel's Office, Office of Thrift Supervision, 1700 G 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20552.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OTS is amending its regulations to 
incorporate a number of technical and conforming amendments. OTS is 
making the following miscellaneous changes:
     Sections 558.1 and 558.2--Procedure upon taking 
possession; notice of appointment. OTS's regulations at 12 CFR 558.1 
provides that when OTS appoints a conservator or receiver, the 
conservator or receiver shall, upon taking possession of the 
institution: (1) Give notice of the appointment to any officer or 
employee of the institution who appears to be in charge at the 
institution's principal office, and (2) serve a copy of the order of 
appointment upon the savings association or an existing conservator or 
receiver by leaving a copy of the order at the principal office or by 
handing a copy of the order to specified persons. This final rule 
modifies Sec. Sec.  558.1 and 558.2 to increase administrative 
flexibility by providing that the Director of OTS will designate those 
persons or entities that will give notice and make service. In 
addition, reference to service on prior receivers is eliminated because 
the OTS may appoint only the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as a 
receiver of a savings association.
     Section 563.43--Loans by savings associations to their 
executive officers, directors and principal shareholders. The final 
rule revises the introductory paragraph to remove the reference to 
subparts A and B of the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation O (12 CFR 
Part 215) as Regulation O is no longer divided

[[Page 18]]

into subparts. The introductory paragraph is also revised to remove the 
reference to Sec.  215.13 since that section no longer exists.
     Section 564.8--Appraisal policies and practices of savings 
associations and subsidiaries. The incorrect reference to Sec.  563.172 
in paragraph (a) ``Introduction'' is removed.
     Section 567.5--Components of capital. Section 
567.5(b)(1)(iv), which refers to net worth certificates, and section 
567.5(b)(1)(v), which refers to income capital certificates, are 
obsolete and are removed. All of these certificates have been redeemed 
and no longer exist.
     Section 567.12--Intangible assets, servicing assets, and 
credit-enhancing interest-only strips. The practice of grandfathering 
core deposit intangibles (CDIs) is no longer relevant because all CDIs 
were fully amortized as of 2002. Therefore, Sec.  567.12(g) is removed.
     Section 574.2(c)(3)--Definitions. The cross-reference to 
Sec.  563b.2(a)(39) is corrected by replacing it with a cross-reference 
to Sec.  563b.25.

and comment on this final rule and with the 30-day delay of effective 
date mandated by the Administrative Procedure Act.\1\ OTS believes that 
these procedures are unnecessary and contrary to the public interest 
because the rule merely makes changes to agency procedures and 
technical changes to existing provisions. Because the amendments in the 
rule are not substantive, these changes will not affect savings 
associations.
