Download as PDF 66670 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 215 / Wednesday, November 6, 2013 / Proposed Rules labor rate of $85 per hour, inspecting LH and RH frame No. 9 would require about 3 work-hours, for a cost per helicopter of $255 and a total cost to U.S. operators of $9,435 per inspection cycle. Repairing a cracked frame No. 9 would require about 20 work-hours, and required parts would cost about $10,000, for a cost per helicopter of $11,700. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Authority for This Rulemaking PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. ‘‘Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs,’’ describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in ‘‘Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This proposed regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 Regulatory Findings We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed, I certify this proposed regulation: 1. Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; 2. Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); 3. Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska to the extent that it justifies making a regulatory distinction; and 4. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared an economic evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:07 Nov 05, 2013 Jkt 232001 The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive (AD): ■ Eurocopter France Helicopters: Docket No. FAA–2013–0938; Directorate Identifier 2012–SW–057–AD. (a) Applicability This AD applies to Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) Model SA–365N, SA–365N1, AS–365N2, and AS 365 N3 helicopters, certificated in any category. (b) Unsafe Condition This AD defines the unsafe condition as a crack in frame number (No.) 9, which could result in failure of frame No. 9, loss of structural integrity, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. (c) Comments Due Date We must receive comments by January 6, 2014. (d) Compliance You are responsible for performing each action required by this AD within the specified compliance time unless it has already been accomplished prior to that time. (e) Required Actions (1) For helicopters that have any repair or alteration to the frame No. 9, within 10 hours time-in-service (TIS) and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 110 hours TIS, using a 10X or higher power magnifying glass, inspect the left-hand (LH) and right-hand (RH) frame No. 9 for a crack in the area of the latch support and stretcher support, as depicted in Figure 1 of Eurocopter AS365 Emergency Alert Service Bulletin No. 05.00.63, Revision 1, dated June 18, 2012. (2) For all other helicopters, within 110 hours TIS and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 110 hours TIS, perform the inspection in paragraph (e)(1) of this AD. (3) If there is a crack, before further flight, repair the frame No. 9. Repairing a frame is not terminating action for the repetitive inspections required by paragraphs (e)(1) and (e)(2) of this AD. (f) Special flight permit Special flight permits may be issued for up to 10 hours TIS and a maximum crack length of 80 mm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 13, 2013 (78 FR 56625), HUD 
published a proposed rule in the Federal Register that would implement 
changes made by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer 
Protection Act (Pub. L. 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376 (July 21, 2010)) (Dodd-
Frank Act) to HUD's Housing Counseling Program, established pursuant to 
section 106 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (12 U.S.C. 
1701x) (1968 Act). The Dodd-Frank Act amended section 106 of the 1968 
Act to improve the effectiveness of HUD's Housing Counseling Program 
by, among other things: defining certain commonly used terms in the 
program; ensuring that HUD-approved counselors provide counseling 
covering the entire process of homeownership, from the purchase of a 
home to its disposition; requiring that housing counseling agencies 
provide materials on home inspections, as part of home purchase 
counseling; ensuring that rental or homeownership counseling provided

comments. Therefore, HUD is announcing through this notice an extended 
public comment period, for an additional 30-day period, to December 12,
