Endangered Fish and Wildlife; Final Rule To Remove the Sunset Provision of the Final Rule Implementing Vessel Speed Restrictions To Reduce the Threat of Ship Collisions With North Atlantic Right Whales
Document Number: 2013-29355
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS is eliminating the expiration date (or ``sunset clause'') contained in regulations requiring vessel speed restrictions to reduce the likelihood of lethal vessel collisions with North Atlantic right whales. The regulations restrict vessel speeds to no more than 10 knots for vessels 65 ft (19.8 m) or greater in overall length in certain locations and at certain times of the year along the east coast of the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. The purpose of the regulation is to reduce the likelihood of deaths and serious injuries to endangered North Atlantic right whales that result from collisions with ships. The speed regulations will expire December 9, 2013, unless the sunset clause is removed. With this final rule, NMFS is removing the rule's sunset provision. All other aspects of the rule remain in place until circumstances warrant further changes to the rule.

For example, records relating to an investigation of a security incident that occurred during passenger or property screening would be covered by this system. As a result of a biennial review of this system, records have been updated within the routine uses. Specifically, the statute citation in routine use P. has been corrected. This notice is being re-issued in its entirety in order to have a single updated record available for public review. This updated system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.

Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be submitting the following information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection notice was previously published in the Federal Register on July 23, 2013, at 78 FR 44141, allowing for a 60-day public comment period.

Glycine From the People's Republic of China: Final Rescission of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2012
Document Number: 2013-29337
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On August 23, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published its Preliminary Rescission for the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review March 1, 2012, through August 31, 2012, for Hebei Donghua Jiheng Fine Chemical Company, Ltd. (Donghua Fine Chemical).\1\ For these final results, we continue to find that, because Donghua Fine Chemical appears to be affiliated with PRC-companies that have had prior shipments of subject merchandise to the United States, it has therefore failed to certify to its first U.S. entry, U.S. shipment, and U.S. sale, as required under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (C). We also continue to find that Donghua Fine Chemical failed to report its first U.S. entry and/or U.S. shipment within one year of its request for a new shipper review, thus failing to satisfy the deadline requirements of 19 CFR 351.214(c). Because Donghua Fine Chemical's request did not satisfy the regulatory requirements for a new shipper review, we are rescinding the new shipper for Donghua Fine Chemical.
Frontseating Service Valves From the People's Republic of China; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011-2012
Document Number: 2013-29333
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On May 13, 2013, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty on frontseating service valves from the People's Republic of China.\1\ The period of review (``POR'') is April 1, 2011, through March 31, 2012. The review covers two exporters of subject merchandise, Zhejiang DunAn Hetian Metal Co., Ltd. (``DunAn'') and Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd. (``Sanhua''). The Department continues to find that DunAn did not have reviewable entries during the POR. Additionally, we find that Sanhua made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (``NV''). Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes to our margin calculations for Sanhua. The final weighted-average dumping margin for this review is listed below in the section entitled ``Final Results of the Review.''

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Hamilton, OH
Document Number: 2013-29327
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Hamilton, OH. Decommissioning of the Hamilton nondirectional radio beacon (NDB) at Butler County Regional Airport has made reconfiguration necessary for standard instrument approach procedures and for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. The airport's name and geographic coordinates also would be changed.

Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Airworthiness Directives; EADS CASA (Type Certificate Previously Held by Construcciones Aeronauticas, S.A.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-29320
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain EADS CASA (Type Certificate Previously Held by Construcciones Aeronauticas, S.A.) Model CN-235-300 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of reduced thickness of the center fuselage lower skin panel. This proposed AD would require a detailed inspection to determine the presence of panel thickness reduction, and repetitive nondestructive testing (NDT) inspections and repair if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct a reduced thickness of lower panel joints, which could result in reduced fatigue and damage tolerant characteristics of the lower panel joint to the adjacent side panels and lead to failure of the center fuselage lower skin panel, resulting in loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-29317
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directives (ADs) 97-11- 07 and AD 99-18-23, which apply to all The Boeing Company Model MD-90- 30 airplanes. AD 97-11-07 and AD 99-18-23 currently require revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate certain compliance times for principal structural elements (PSE) inspections and replacement times for safe-life limited parts. Since we issued AD 97-11-07 and AD 99-18- 23, an analysis of data identified a need to introduce a new PSE requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate the new PSE requirement and its associated inspections. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of PSEs and certain safe-life limited parts, which could adversely affect the structural integrity of the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-29310
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, - 700C, -800, -900 and -900ER series airplanes. The SNPRM proposed to require inspecting for a serial number that starts with the letters ``SAIC'' on the left- and right-side horizontal stabilizer identification plate; inspecting for correct bolt protrusion and chamfer of the termination fitting bolts of the horizontal stabilizer rear spar, if necessary; inspecting to determine if certain bolts are installed, if necessary; and doing related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. The SNPRM was prompted by reports of incorrectly installed bolts common to the rear spar termination fitting on the horizontal stabilizer. This action revises the SNPRM by revising the applicable thresholds from flight cycles on the airplane to flight cycles accumulated on the affected horizontal stabilizer. We are proposing this SNPRM to prevent loss of structural integrity of the horizontal stabilizer attachment and loss of control of the airplane. Since these actions impose an additional burden over that proposed in the earlier SNPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these proposed changes.
