Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 139 / Friday, July 18, 2008 / Proposed Rules commented that, once export markets were lost, it would be difficult and costly for the industry to recover those sales. Raisins are mostly used as an ingredient in baked goods, cereals, and snacks. Typically, buyers want reliable suppliers from year to year and are generally reluctant to find alternative ingredients or sources. In turn, once buyers change sources, they may not switch back. Export markets for raisins are highly competitive. The U.S. and Turkey are the world’s leading producers of raisins. Turkey exports approximately 76 percent of its total production, and represents an alternative product source for raisin buyers. Turkey’s 2007–08 raisin crop was small due to a drought and high temperatures. Consequently, exports of Turkish raisins decreased while exports of California raisins increased significantly (up about 30 percent). Maintaining the industry’s export markets would help the industry maximize its 2008–09 total shipments of NS raisins and prevent handlers from carrying forward large quantities of inventory into the 2009–10 crop year. If the industry is unable to maximize its 2008–09 shipments of NS raisins, carryin inventory could be high. This would result in a lower computed trade demand figure for the 2009–10 crop year and ultimately a lower free tonnage percentage. Since NS raisin producers are paid significantly more for their free tonnage raisins than for reserve tonnage raisins, this would mean reduced returns to producers. Projected reduced 2009–10 returns to producers, coupled with the risks of rain and labor shortages during harvest, may influence producers to ‘‘go green,’’ or sell their raisin-variety grapes to the fresh-grape, wine, or juice concentrate markets. Additional supplies to those outlets could potentially reduce ‘‘green’’ returns as well. The Committee discussed alternatives to this change. One option considered was using one of the three prior year’s shipments to compute trade demand, pursuant to § 989.54(a) of the order. However, the order only allows this if prior year’s shipments were limited due to crop conditions. Since 2007–08 shipments have increased, the Committee concluded this option was not viable. Another alternative considered was utilizing the computed trade demand formula in the order and using all available funds to support the ERO (about $21.7 million from the 2007–08 reserve pool). However, these funds would only support the ERO through December 2008. Thus, the Committee ultimately recommended VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:42 Jul 17, 2008 Jkt 214001 using an estimated trade demand to compute volume regulation percentages next year if 2008–09 crop NS raisin supplies are short. This proposed rule would provide parameters for implementing volume regulation for 2008–09 crop NS raisins, if supplies are short, for the purposes of maintaining a portion of the industry’s export markets and stabilizing the domestic market. Accordingly, this action would not impose any additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements on either small or large raisin handlers. As with all Federal marketing order programs, reports and forms are periodically reviewed to reduce information requirements and duplication by industry and public sector agencies. AMS is committed to complying with the E-Government Act, to promote the use of the Internet and other information technologies to provide increased opportunities for citizen access to Government information and services, and for other purposes. USDA has not identified any relevant Federal rules that duplicate, overlap or conflict with this proposed rule. In addition, the Committee’s Administrative Issues Subcommittee deliberated this issue prior to the Committee’s meeting on April 3, 2008. Both meetings were widely publicized throughout the raisin industry and all interested persons were invited to attend the meetings and participate in Committee deliberations on all issues. Like all Committee meetings, the April 3, 2008, meetings were public meetings and all entities, both large and small, were able to express views on this issue. Finally, interested persons are invited to submit comments on this proposed rule, including the regulatory and informational impacts of this action on small businesses. A small business guide on complying with fruit, vegetable, and specialty crop marketing agreements and orders may be viewed at: http://www.ams.usda.gov/ AMSv1.0/ ams.fetchTemplateData.do?template= TemplateN&page=MarketingOrders SmallBusinessGuide. Any questions about the compliance guide should be sent to Jay Guerber at the previously mentioned address in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. A 15-day comment period is provided to allow interested persons to respond to this proposal. Fifteen days is deemed appropriate because this action, if adopted, should be in place by the beginning of the 2008–09 crop year, August 1.

Comments Invited

    We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments regarding this proposed AD. Send your comments to an address 
listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include the docket number, ``FAA-
2008-0790; Directorate Identifier 2008-CE-042-AD'' at the beginning of 
your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall 
regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the proposed 
AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may 
amend the proposed AD in light of those comments.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://
www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We 
will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we 
receive concerning this proposed AD.

Discussion

    We have been notified by Ballistic Recovery Systems, Inc. of a 
continued operational safety concern on Cessna 150 series airplanes 
that is similar to that which prompted AD 2007-14-03 (72 FR 37999, July 
12, 2007) on the Cirrus Airplane Parachute System (CAPS), where the 
parachute failed to successfully deploy. We also issued AD 2008-02-18 
(73 FR 4051, January 24, 2008), where a similar situation could occur 
on the Cessna 172 series and 182 series airplanes that are equipped 
with the BRS-172 and BRS-182 Parachute Systems, respectively. Testing 
indicates that the force of the rocket ignition and rocket blast may 
prematurely break the nylon pick up collar/support screws. When 
functioning properly the screws should not break until impacted by a 
flange at the rocket base. A prematurely separated collar/support may 
bind on the rocket as it slides down toward the flange at the base of 
the rocket. This may alter the direction of the rocket.
    This condition, if not corrected, could result in the parachute 
failing to successfully deploy upon activation.

Relevant Service Information

    We have reviewed Ballistic Recovery Systems, Inc. Mandatory Service 
Bulletin SB 2008-04-01 R1, dated April 24, 2008. The service 
information describes procedures for the replacement of the pick-up 
collar support, launch tube, and nylon screws.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD

    We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all information and 
determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist 
or develop on other products of the same type design. This proposed AD 
would require the replacement of the pick-up collar support, launch 
tube, and nylon screws for the BRS-150 Parachute System.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 6 airplanes in the 
U.S. registry.
    We estimate the following costs to do the proposed modification:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                 Total cost per   Total cost on
                 Labor cost                              Parts cost                 airplane      U.S. operators

04-01 R1, dated April 24, 2008.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, Section 106, describes the 
authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, 
describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's authority.
    We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701, ``General 
requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation 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 have 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 that the 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.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the AD docket that contains the proposed AD, the 
regulatory evaluation, any comments
