The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new AD: Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA–2010– 0432; Directorate Identifier 2010–NM– 001–AD. Comments Due Date (a) We must receive comments by June 10, 2010. Affected ADs (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC–8–201, –202, –301, –311, and –315 airplanes, certificated in any category, having serial numbers 644 through 664 inclusive. Subject (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 28: Fuel. Reason (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states: During a recent production fuel system test, it was found that all three flapper valves located in each collector tank did not conform to the design requirements, due to the fact that a valve spring was installed on the flapper hinge pin. This valve spring should have been removed prior to installation of the valves. It was subsequently determined that this condition is restricted to the 21 aircraft listed in the Applicability section above. With the valve spring installed, the flapper valve is held closed by the valve spring, preventing gravity feed. In the event of scavenge system failure, the collector tank fuel level can no longer be maintained, potentially leading to an in-flight engine shutdown. In order to ensure adequate fuel transfer to the collector tank at all times, this directive mandates a one-time [detailed] inspection of each of the six flapper valves, removal of the valve spring, if installed, and application of an identification mark on each inspected valve. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS Compliance (f) You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD performed within the compliance times specified, unless the actions have already been done. Actions (g) Within 1,000 flight hours after the effective date of this AD, do a detailed inspection of each collector tank flapper valve for the presence of a valve spring, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier Service Bulletin 8–28–54, dated April 22, 2009. If the valve spring is not present, before further flight, apply an identification mark, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier Service Bulletin 8–28–54, dated April 22, 2009. If the valve spring is present, before further flight, remove the valve spring VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:22 Apr 23, 2010 Jkt 220001 and apply an identification mark, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier Service Bulletin 8–28–54, dated April 22, 2009. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FAA AD Differences 14 CFR Part 71 Note 1: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information as follows: No differences. [Docket No. FAA–2009–1011; Airspace Docket No. 09–ANM–19] Other FAA AD Provisions (h) The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, New York Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), ANE–170, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

Background on the Texas Program Section 503(a) of the Act permits a State to assume primacy for the regulation of surface coal mining and reclamation operations on non-Federal and non-Indian lands within its borders by demonstrating that its program includes, among other things, ‘‘a State law which provides for the regulation of surface coal mining and reclamation operations in accordance with the requirements of this Act * * *; and rules and regulations consistent with regulations issued by the Secretary pursuant to this Act.’’ See 30 U.S.C. 1253(a)(1) and (7).

You can also find later actions concerning the Texas program and program amendments at 30 CFR 943.10, 943.15 and 943.16. II. Description of the Proposed Amendment By letter dated January 5, 2010 (Administrative Record No. TX–666), Texas sent us an amendment to its program under SMCRA (30 U.S.C. 1201 et seq.) at its own initiative. Below is a summary of the changes proposed by Texas. The full text of the program amendment is available for you to read at the locations listed above under ADDRESSES. Texas proposes to revise its regulation at 16 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) section 12.108(b) regarding annual permit fees by: (1) Decreasing the amount of the fee for each acre of land within the permit area on which coal or lignite was actually removed during the calendar year, (2) Increasing the amount of the fee for each acre of land within a permit area covered by a reclamation bond on December 31st of the year, and (3) Increasing the amount of the fee for each permit in effect on December 31st of the year. Texas fully funds its 50% state share of costs to regulate the coal mining industry with fees paid by the coal industry. Texas charges various fees to meet these costs including permit application fees, and annual fees for lands in various stages of mining and reclamation. The proposed fee revisions are intended to provide incentives for industry to accomplish reclamation and achieve bond release as quickly as possible. This would be achieved by decreasing the fee per acre where coal or lignite is removed, and increasing both the fee for each acre under permit and the fee for each permit which remains active on December 31st of each year. By making these changes, companies are encouraged to make every effort to achieve bond release before the end of each year. III. Public Comment Procedures Under the provisions of 30 CFR 732.17(h), we are seeking your comments on whether the amendment satisfies the applicable program approval criteria of 30 CFR 732.15. If we approve the amendment, it will become part of the State program. E:\FR\FM\26APP1.SGM 26APP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On November 18, 2009, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
NPRM to establish Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet or 
more above the surface, at Bryce Canyon Airport, Bryce Canyon, UT (74

received.
    Both commenters recommended establishing Class E surface airspace 
for aircraft safety. The FAA found merit in

Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application 
procedure.

The Supplemental Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E surface airspace 
at Bryce Canyon, UT, in concert with Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface, to accommodate aircraft using the new 
RNAV (GPS) SIAPs at Bryce Canyon Airport. This action would enhance the 
safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9T, signed August 27, 2009, and 
effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will 
be published subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 
FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a 
regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since 
this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when 
promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106, describes 
the authority for the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation 
Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's authority. 
This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it would establish controlled airspace at Bryce Canyon Airport, 
Bryce Canyon, UT.
