Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB Ginnie Mae Multiclass Securities Program Documents
Document Number: 2013-08271
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-04-10

The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. HUD is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. This information collection is required in connection with the operation of the Ginnie Mae Multiclass Securities Program. Ginnie Mae's authority to guarantee multiclass instruments is contained in 306(g)(1) of the National Housing Act (``NHA'') (12 U.S.C. 1721(g)(1)), which authorizes Ginnie Mae to guarantee ``securities based on or backed by a trust or pool composed of mortgages'' Multiclass securities are backed by Ginnie Mae securities, which are backed by government insured or guaranteed mortgages. Ginnie Mae's authority to operate a Multiclass Securities Program is recognized in Section 3004 of the Omnibus Budget econciliation Act of 1993 (``OBRA''), which amended 306(g)(3) of the NHA (12 U.S.C. 1271(g)(3)) to provide Ginnie Mae with greater flexibility for the Multiclass Securities Program regarding fee structure, contracting, industry consultation, and program implementation. Congress annually sets Ginnie Mae's commitment authority to guarantee mortgage-backed securities (``MBS'') pursuant to 306(G)(2) of the NHA (12 U.S.C. 1271(g)(2)). Since the multiclass are backed by Ginnie Mae Single Class MBS, Ginnie Mae has already guaranteed the collateral for the multiclass instruments. The Ginnie Mae Multiclass Securities Program consists of Ginnie Mae Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit (``REMIC'') securities, Stripped Mortgage-Backed Securities (``SMBS''), and Platinum securities. The Multiclass Securities program provides an important adjunct to Ginnie Mae's secondary mortgage market activities, allowing the private sector to combine and restructure cash flows from Ginnie Mae Single Class MBS into securities that meet unique investor requirements in connection with yield, maturity, and call-option protection. The intent of the Multiclass Securities Program is to increase liquidity in the secondary mortgage market and to attract new sources of capital for federally insured or guaranteed loans. Under this program, Ginnie Mae guarantees, with the full faith and credit of the United States, the timely payment of principal and interest on Ginnie Mae REMIC, SMBS and Platinum securities.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-08068
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, and A320 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer, which revealed that certain fuel pumps under certain conditions can create an ignition source in the fuel tank. This AD requires modification of the center tank fuel pump control circuit by installation of ground fault interrupters (GFIs). This AD would also require either replacement of the GFI or deactivation of the associated fuel pump following failure of any post-modification operational test of the GFI. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-08047
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-200, A330-200 Freighter, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 series airplanes; and Model A340-541 airplanes and Model A340- 642 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracks in the bogie pivot pin caused by material heating due to friction between the bogie pivot pin and bush, leading to chrome detachment and chrome dragging on the bogie pivot pin. This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections for degradation of the bogie pivot pins and for any cracks and damage of the pivot pin bushes of the main and central landing gear; a magnetic particle inspection of the affected bogie pivot pins for corrosion and base metal cracks; and repairing or replacing bogie pivot pins and pivot pin bushes, if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks and damage to the main and central landing gear, which could result in the collapse of the landing gear and adversely affect the airplane's continued safe flight and landing.
Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) Devices in the 5 GHz Band
Document Number: 2013-08033
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-04-10
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
This document proposes to amend the Commission's rules governing the operation of Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) devices in the 5 GHz band. The Commission has gained much experience with U-NII devices since it first made spectrum available in the 5 GHz band for U-NII in 1997. The Commission believes that the time is now right to revisit the rules. The initiation of this proceeding satisfies the requirements of the ``Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012'' which requires the Commission to begin a proceeding to modify the rules to allow unlicensed U-NII devices to operate in the 5350-5470 MHz band. The Commission believes that an increase in capacity gained from 195 megahertz of additional spectrum, combined with the ease of deployment and operational flexibility provided by its U-NII rules would continue to foster the development of new and innovative unlicensed devices, and increase wireless broadband access and investment.
Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Helicopters
Document Number: 2013-07932
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter France EC130B4 helicopters. This AD requires visually checking the center windscreen panel (center windscreen) for a crack and replacing the center windscreen if there is a crack, if the windscreen distorts during flight, or within 12 months. This AD was prompted by in-flight cracking and failure of a center windscreen. The actions of this AD are intended to detect a crack in the blending radii of the center windscreen to prevent failure of the windscreen, injury to the flight crew, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Disclosure of Consumer Complaint Data
Document Number: 2013-07569
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-10
Agency: Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection
The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) is issuing a final policy statement (Policy Statement) to provide guidance on how the Bureau plans to exercise its discretion to publicly disclose certain consumer complaint data that do not include personally identifiable information.

The Policy Statement also identifies additional ways that the Bureau may disclose consumer complaint data but as to which it will conduct further study before finalizing its position.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-03903
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 757 airplanes equipped with Rolls- Royce RB211-535E engines. That AD currently requires repetitive inspections for signs of damage of the aft hinge fittings and attachment bolts of the thrust reversers, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. The existing AD also provides for an optional terminating modification for the repetitive inspections. For certain airplanes, this new AD adds a one-time inspection of the washers installed under the attachment bolts of the aft hinge fittings for correct installation sequence, and reinstallation if necessary. This new AD also adds an option for installing a redesigned aft hinge fitting with the trim already done, instead of trimming an existing or new hinge fitting, which is included in the existing optional terminating modification. This AD was prompted by reports of incorrectly installed washers under the attachment bolts of the aft hinge fittings of the thrust reversers. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the attachment bolts and consequent separation of a thrust reverser from the airplane during flight, which could result in structural damage to the airplane.
Shelter for the Homeless
Document Number: 2013-03420
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-10
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The Department of Defense is updating current policies and procedures for the Defense Shelter for the Homeless Program. This direct final rule makes nonsubstantive changes to the existing rule for this program. The amendments correct the authority citation throughout the text, update organizational titles, and move procedures from the policy section into a separate procedures section. This rule is being published as a direct final rule as the Department of Defense does not expect to receive any adverse comments, and so a proposed rule is unnecessary.
