Hours of Service of Drivers: Trailways Companies Application for Exemption
FMCSA announces its decision to grant Adirondack Trailways, Pine Hill Trailways, New York Trailways (``Trailways'') and all other regular-route passenger carriers and their drivers an exemption from the hours-of-service (HOS) record of duty status (RODS) requirement to enter a change in duty status on the daily log for breaks in driving time of 10 minutes or less, for the limited purpose of picking up or dropping off passengers, baggage, or small express packages. FMCSA extended the request to all regular-route passenger carriers and their drivers rather than limiting it to Trailways' drivers. The exemption will allow these drivers to perform their daily duties without having to record entries in the daily log for breaks in driving time of 10 minutes or less. Such activity will not be considered a change of duty status for the purposes of 49 CFR 395.8(c).

FMCSA announces its decision to grant the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) an exemption from the minimum 30-minute rest break provision of the Agency's hours-of-service (HOS) regulations for commercial motor vehicle drivers. The exemption would enable DOE's contract motor carriers and their employee-drivers engaged in the transportation of security-sensitive radioactive materials to be treated similarly to drivers of shipments of explosives. The exempted drivers would be allowed to use 30 minutes or more of ``attendance time'' to meet the HOS rest break requirements providing they do not perform any other work during the break.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of erratic pitch movement and oscillatory behaviors of the elevator control system. This proposed AD would require repetitive replacement of the bellcrank supports on the inner rear spar of the horizontal stabilizer with new, improved bellcrank supports. We are proposing this AD to prevent erratic pitch movement and transient accelerations, which could result in a significant pitch upset, and injuries to passengers and flightcrew.

National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is proposing to update the NGA Privacy Act Program by adding the (j)(2) and (k)(2) exemptions to accurately describe the basis for exempting the records in the system of records notice NGA-004, NGA Threat Mitigation Records.

To the extent that copies of exempt records from JUSTICE/FBI- 019, Terrorist Screening Records System are entered into these Threat Mitigation case records, NGA hereby claims the same exemptions for the records as claimed in JUSTICE/FBI-019, Terrorist Screening Records system of records of which they are a part.
Expedited Approval of Alternative Test Procedures for the Analysis of Contaminants Under the Safe Drinking Water Act; Analysis and Sampling Procedures
This action announces the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) approval of alternative testing methods for use in measuring the levels of contaminants in drinking water and determining compliance with national primary drinking water regulations. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) authorizes EPA to approve the use of alternative testing methods through publication in the Federal Register. EPA is using this streamlined authority to make 84 additional methods available for analyzing drinking water samples. This expedited approach provides public water systems, laboratories, and primacy agencies with more timely access to new measurement techniques and greater flexibility in the selection of analytical methods, thereby reducing monitoring costs while maintaining public health protection.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca S.A. Arrius 2B, 2B1, and 2F turboshaft engines. That AD currently requires replacement of injector manifolds and borescope- inspection of the flame tube and the high-pressure (HP) turbine area for possible damage. This new AD requires, depending on the engine model, repetitive replacements of fuel injection manifolds and the privilege injector, or, repetitive replacements of the privilege injector. This AD was prompted by a report that the corrective actions of the existing AD were insufficient to eliminate the unsafe condition. We are issuing this AD to prevent an uncommanded in-flight shutdown of Arrius 2B1 and 2F turboshaft engines and damage to the helicopter.
Proposed Subsequent Arrangement
