SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 18, 2011, President Obama issued Executive Order 13563, ‘‘Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review.’’ The Executive Order requires Federal agencies to seek more affordable, less intrusive ways to achieve policy goals and give careful consideration to the benefits and costs of their regulations. The Executive Order also requires agencies to develop a preliminary plan for reviewing their regulations to determine, among other things, if they are outdated, ineffective, insufficient, or excessively burdensome on the public. On March 14, 2011, as part of SBA’s implementation of the Executive Order, the agency published a notice in the Federal Register soliciting comments to assist the agency in the development of the preliminary plan required by the Executive Order, and to identify whether any of SBA’s existing regulations should be modified, streamlined, expanded or repealed (76 FR 13532). SBA received 11 comments in Regulations.gov from a mix of small business trade organizations, a small business owner, an SBA loan program participating lender, an advocacy and research organization, associations of research universities, and members of the general public. Those comments are summarized in the SBA’s Preliminary Plan for Retrospective Review of Existing Regulations (May 17, 2011), which is posted on the agency’s Open Government Web site at http:// www.sba.gov/content/sba-preliminaryplan-retrospective-analysis-existingrules). In addition to the Federal VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:03 Jun 22, 2011 Jkt 223001 Register notice, SBA solicited ideas during the Small Business Jobs Act Tour (see http://www.sba.gov/jobsacttour) and the Startup America: Reducing Barriers roundtable events (see http:// www.sba.gov/content/startup-americareducing-barriers-roundtables.) Comments provided at these events will be considered in developing the final plan. To ensure that the plan meets the objectives of the Executive Order and to benefit from the expertise of interested members of the public, the SBA is now requesting public comments on this preliminary plan before finalizing it. To comment on the preliminary plan, visit http://www.regulations.gov and insert SBA–2011–0012 in the ‘‘Enter Keyword or ID’’ box. Once you are taken to the docket for the plan, click on the ‘‘Submit a Comment’’ bubble to open the comment form. When providing input, the SBA requests that commenters provide as much detail as possible and provide empirical evidence and data to support responses. The SBA will consider the public comments in development of the agency’s final plan as well as the retrospective analysis of the rules. SBA notes that this Request for comments is issued solely for information and program-planning purposes. SBA will give careful consideration to the responses, and may use them as appropriate during the retrospective review, but we do not anticipate providing a point-by-point response to each comment submitted. While responses to this request for comments do not bind the Agency to any further actions related to the response, all submissions will be made publically available on http:// www.regulations.gov.

ACTION: Notice of proposed clarification of prior interpretations. AGENCY: This action proposes to clarify prior interpretations of the seat belt and seating requirements of 14 CFR 91.107(a)(3). These prior interpretations state that the shared use of a single restraint may be permissible. The proposed clarification states that the use of a seat belt and/or seat by more than one occupant is appropriate only if: The seat belt is approved and rated for such use; the structural strength requirements for the seat are not exceeded; and the seat usage conforms with the limitations contained in the approved portion of the Airplane Flight Manual. The proposed clarification also emphasizes that the proper restraint method for children during operations conducted under part 91 relies on the good judgment of the pilot, who should be intimately aware of the capabilities and structural requirements of the aircraft that he or she is operating.

Background On March 22, 2009, a Pilatus PC–12/ 45 descended and impacted the ground near the approach end of a runway at Bert Mooney Airport in Butte, Montana. After investigating this incident, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) determined the following. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 At the time of the impact, the Pilatus PC–12/45 airplane was operating as a personal flight under the provisions of 14 CFR part 91. The pilot and the 13 airplane passengers were killed, and the airplane was destroyed by impact forces and the postcrash fire. Among the 13 passengers were six adults and seven children. Because the flight was a single-pilot operation, eight seats in the cabin and one seat in the cockpit were available to the 13 passengers. Thus, the number of passengers exceeded the number of available seats. The NTSB was unable to determine the original seating position for most of the occupants, but the bodies of four children, ages 3 to 9 years, were found farthest from the impact site, indicating that these children were likely thrown from the airplane because they were unrestrained or improperly restrained. The NTSB noted that if the accident had been less severe and the impact had been survivable, any unrestrained occupant or occupants sharing a single restraint system would have been at a much greater risk of injury or death. As a result of the March 22, 2009 incident described above, the NTSB has requested that the FAA withdraw its prior interpretations of 14 CFR 91.107(a)(3), which permit the shared use of a single restraint system. Discussion of the Proposal In response to the NTSB’s request, the FAA proposes to clarify its prior interpretations of 14 CFR 91.107(a)(3) as follows. For part 91 operations, section 91.107(a)(3) requires that ‘‘each person on board a U.S. registered civil aircraft * * * must occupy an approved seat or berth with a safety belt and, if installed, shoulder harness, properly secured about him or her during movement on the surface, takeoff, and landing.’’ Children under the age of two may be held by an adult who is occupying an approved seat or berth and no restraining device for the child is used. In contrast, for commercial operations under part 121, section 121.311 requires that each person ‘‘occupy an approved seat or berth with a separate safety belt properly secured about him.’’ When § 121.311 and § 91.107 (previously § 91.14) were first promulgated in 1971, the FAA clarified that the separate use provision for safety belts under part 121 was not intended to apply to part 91 operations. Rather, part 91 ‘‘requires only that each person on board occupy a seat or berth with a safety belt properly secured about him.’’ 36 FR 12511 (July 1, 1971). The FAA has previously interpreted this provision as not requiring separate use E:\FR\FM\23JNP1.SGM 23JNP1

Background

    On May 20, 2011, the FAA published Notice No. 08-07A, 
Qualification, Service, and Use of Crewmembers and Aircraft Dispatchers 
(76 FR 29336). Comments to that document were to be received on or 
before July 19, 2011.
    In a letter dated May 25, 2011, the Air Transport Association of 
America, Cargo Airline Association, Air Carrier Association of America, 
Regional Airline Association, National Air Carrier Association, Boeing 
Company, and Airbus Americas requested a 180-day extension of the 
comment period. In a letter dated May 27, 2011, the Air Line Pilots 
Association requested a 60-day extension of the comment period. In 
addition, in an undated letter, the International Air Transport 
Association requested a 180-day extension of the comment period. The 
petitioners noted that the SNPRM and supporting documents are 
extensive.
    While the FAA concurs with the petitioners' requests for an 
extension of the comment period on Notice No. 08-07A, it does not 
support a 180-day extension. The FAA finds that providing an additional 
60 days is sufficient for these petitioners to analyze the SNPRM and 
supporting documents and provide meaningful comment to Notice No. 08-
07A.
    The FAA does not anticipate any further extension of the comment 
period for this rulemaking.

Extension of Comment Period

    In accordance with Sec.  11.47(c) of title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations, the FAA has reviewed the petitions for extension of the 
comment period to Notice No. 08-07A. These petitioners have shown a 
substantive interest in the proposed rule and good cause for the 
extension. The FAA has determined that extension of the comment period 
is consistent with the public interest, and that good cause exists for 
taking this action.
    Accordingly, the comment period for Notice No. 08-07A is extended 
until September 19, 2011.
