Document Number: 2013-12748
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-05-29
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission requires all commercial mobile radio service (CMRS) providers and providers of interconnected text messaging services (i.e., all providers of software applications that enable a consumer to send text messages to all or substantially all text-capable U.S. telephone numbers and receive text messages from the same) to provide an automatic ``bounce-back'' text message where a consumer attempts to send a text message to 911 in a location where text-to-911 is not available. The rules are adopted with the goal of reducing the risk of individuals sending text messages to 911 during an emergency and mistakenly believing that 911 authorities had received it, particularly during the transition to Next Generation 911 (NG911), when text-to-911 will be available in some areas sooner than others and may be supported by certain service providers but not by others.

Oklahoma: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management Program Revision
Document Number: 2013-12712
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-05-29
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Oklahoma has applied to the EPA for Final authorization of the changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA has determined that these changes satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization, and is authorizing the State's changes through this immediate final action. The EPA is publishing this rule to authorize the changes without a prior proposal because we believe this action is not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose it. Unless we receive written comments which oppose this authorization during the comment period, the decision to authorize Oklahoma's changes to its hazardous waste program will take effect. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this rule before it takes effect, and a separate document in the proposed rules section of this Federal Register will serve as a proposal to authorize the changes.

EPA proposes to grant Final authorization to the State of Oklahoma. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, EPA is authorizing the changes by an immediate final rule. EPA did not make a proposal prior to the direct final rule because we believe this action is not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose it.

Unless we get written comments which oppose this authorization during the comment period, the direct final rule will become effective on the date it establishes, and we will not take further action on this proposal. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect.

Land Acquisitions: Appeals of Land Acquisition Decisions
Document Number: 2013-12708
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-05-29
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs
This proposed rule revises a section of regulations governing decisions by the Secretary to approve or deny applications to acquire land in trust under this part. This rule is appropriate to address changes in the applicability of the Quiet Title Act as interpreted by a recent United States Supreme Court decision. This rule revises a regulatory provision the Department added in 1996 to ensure that interested parties had the opportunity to timely seek judicial review of decisions when available under the Administrative Procedure Act. The Department had determined the provision was necessary because, consistent with Federal court decisions at the time, once the Secretary acquired title, the Quiet Title Act precluded judicial review of the Secretary's decision to take the land into trust. The Supreme Court has since held that the Quiet Title Act does not preclude timely Administrative Procedure Act challenges to agency decisions to acquire land in trust unless the aggrieved party claims an ownership interest in the property at issue. This rule revises the regulation to reflect this change in the law and to make other revisions to codify the current process for issuing decisions approving or denying requests to acquire land in trust under this part. It also broadens and clarifies the notice of decisions to acquire land in trust under this part, including broadening notice of any right to file an administrative appeal.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) launches the ``Be Heads Up About Concussion Safety'' poster design contest for children and adolescents ages 5 to 18. HHS/CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) asks children and adolescents to be creative and send in posters they create by taking concussion safety key messages created by CDC (listed below), or creating their own message(s) on concussion safety, and using them to design a poster. Children and adolescents can draw, paint, or use a computer to design a poster. The poster should be designed to help make aware and educate other children and adolescents about how to spot a concussion or other serious brain injury, what to do if someone may have a concussion or other serious brain injury, and how to help keep safe from these injuries at school, home, or play. Children and adolescents can create their own concussion safety messages or use one or more of the CDC key messages listed below in their poster: Be Heads Up about concussion. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/ Concussion. Be Heads Up about concussion at school, home, and play. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. We can all play a role in concussion safety. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Be Heads Up! All concussions are serious. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Get a Heads Up! Learn what to do if you think you have a concussion at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Getting back in the game with a concussion is a bad call. It could take you out of the game of life, for good. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. All concussions are serious. It's better to miss one game than the whole season. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Be Heads Up! If you think you have a concussion: don't hide, report it. Take time to recover. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/ Concussion. This contest is necessary to make children and adolescents aware that there are things they can do to help prevent concussions and other serious brain injuries. We expect the contest will inspire children and adolescents to educate other people and raise awareness of concussion safety in elementary, middle, and high schools in their communities. By showcasing the winning posters in each category of submission ((1) Ages 5-8; (2) Ages 9-12; (3) Ages 13-15; (4) Ages 16-18), we will help children and adolescents reach others with important messaging about concussions and other serious brain injuries.
