CMS solicits comments specifically on the contemplated delay in effective date and generally on the rule entitled ‘‘Medicare Program; Changes to the Competitive Acquisition of Certain Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) by Certain Provisions of the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (MIPPA).’’ DATES: Comments must be received on or before February 13, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On January 26, 2009, the FAA published a Notice of proposed special 
conditions, Notice No. 25-09-01-SC, for the Model C-27J airplane on the 
subject of interaction of systems and structures (74 FR 4353). The C-
27J airplane has novel or unusual design features when compared to the 
state of technology described in the airworthiness standards for 
transport category airplanes. These design features include electronic 
flight control systems. The proposed special conditions pertain to the 
effects of novel or unusual design features such as effects on the 
structural performance of the airplane. We requested comments on these 
proposed special conditions by February 25, 2009.

Reason for Withdrawal

    We are withdrawing Notice No. 25-09-01-SC because of a White House 
memorandum, dated January 20, 2009, signed by the Assistant to the 
President and Chief of Staff as directed to the heads of executive 
departments and agencies. The memorandum stated the importance of the 
President's appointees and designees having the opportunity to review 
and approve any new or pending regulations. The subject Notice of 
proposed special conditions was inadvertently published without this 
review.

Conclusion

    Withdrawal of Notice No. 25-09-01-SC does not preclude the FAA from 
issuing another notice on the subject matter in the future or 
committing the agency to any future course of action.
    In response to the White House memorandum, the FAA withdraws Notice 
No. 25-09-01-SC, published at 74 FR 4353 on January 26, 2009.
