Airworthiness Directives; PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A Model PIAGGIO P-180 Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Cracks have been detected on the upper flange (cap) of several ``0'' pressure bulkheads on the production line; none of the cracks had spread across the thickness of material. Investigation revealed that all ``0'' pressure bulkheads installed on aircraft from MSN 1106 up to 1189 could have the same cracks.

National Industrial Security Program Directive No. 1
The Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO), National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), is proposing to amend National Industrial Security Program Directive No. 1. This proposed amendment to Directive No. 1 provides guidance to agencies on release of certain classified information (referred to as ``proscribed information'') to contractors that are owned or under the control of a foreign interest and have had the foreign ownership or control mitigated by an arrangement known as a Special Security Agreement. Currently, there is no Federal standard across agencies on release of proscribed information to this group. The proposed amendment will provide standardization and consistency to the process across the Federal Government, and will enable greater efficiency in determining the release of the information as appropriate. This proposed amendment also moves the definitions section to the beginning of the part for easier use, and adds definitions for the terms ``Cognizant Security Office,'' ``National Interest Determination,'' and ``Proscribed Information,'' to accompany the new guidelines. Finally, this proposed amendment makes a minor typographical change to the authority citation to make it more accurate.

Stream Buffer Zone and Related Rules
We, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM), are seeking comments on our intention to revise our regulations concerning the conduct of mining activities in or near streams. We have determined that revision of the stream buffer zone (SBZ) rule published on December 12, 2008, is necessary to implement the interagency action plan that the Administration has developed to significantly reduce the harmful environmental consequences of surface coal mining operations in Appalachia, while ensuring that future mining remains consistent with Federal law. In this notice, we describe and seek comment on the alternatives that we are considering for revision of the SBZ rule. In addition, we request your help in identifying significant issues, studies, and specific alternatives that we should consider in the SEIS for this rulemaking initiative.
