Registration and Financial Security Requirements for Freight Forwarders; International Association of Movers Exemption Application
Document Number: 2013-30898
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that it has received an application from the International Association of Movers (IAM) for an exemption for all domestic freight forwarders which operate solely in the Department of Defense's (DOD) household goods (HHG) program from the $75,000 bond requirement at 49 CFR 387.403(c).

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-30897
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-200, A330-200 Freighter, and A330-300 series airplanes; and Model A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, and A340-600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the failure of the generator control unit-constant speed motor/generator (GCU-CSM/G) during a final assembly operational test. This proposed AD would require a detailed inspection of the connector wires for GCU-CSM/G connector 1XE-A for discrepancies (evidence of arcing or overheating damage), and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct incorrect locking of contacts into connector 1XE-A of the GCU-CSM/G, which could result in a loss of contact continuity and lead to the CSM/G not operating, which, in conjunction with an emergency electrical configuration loss of the main electrical system or total engine flame out, could adversely affect the airplane's safe flight.
Registration and Financial Security Requirements for Brokers of Property and Freight Forwarders; Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents' Exemption Application
Document Number: 2013-30896
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that it has received an application from the Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents (AIPBA) for an exemption for all property brokers and freight forwarders from the $75,000 bond provision included in section 32918 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), now codified in 49 U.S.C. 13906. AIPBA filed its request pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 13541. On September 5, 2013, FMCSA published guidance in the Federal Register concerning section 32918 and on October 1, 2013, the Agency published a final rule amending 49 CFR part 387 to set a minimum $75,000 surety bond/trust fund requirement for brokers of property and freight forwarders. FMCSA requests comments from all interested parties on AIPBA's exemption request.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-30893
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2005-23- 08 that applies to certain Airbus Model A300 B4-605R and B4-622R airplanes; Model A300 F4-605R airplanes; and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes. AD 2005-23-08 required repetitive inspections to detect cracks of certain attachment holes, installation of new fasteners, follow-on inspections or repair if necessary, and modification of the angle fittings of fuselage frame FR47. Since we issued AD 2005-23-08, we have received reports of cracks found on the horizontal flange of the Frame 47 internal corner angle fitting while accomplishing the modification required by AD 2005-23-08. This proposed AD would add new repetitive ultrasonic inspections for cracks of the center wing box lower panel; and repair if necessary. This proposed AD also removes certain airplanes from the applicability. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the forward fitting of fuselage frame FR47, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the frame.

Airworthiness Directives; Dowty Propellers
Document Number: 2013-30882
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to revise airworthiness directive (AD) 2008-21-07 that applies to certain Dowty Propellers model R408/6-123-F/17 propellers. AD 2008-21-07 requires initial and repetitive inspections of the blade bonded metallic leading edge (L/E) guards for correct bonding until they accumulate more than 1,200 flight hours (FH) time in service. Since we issued AD 2008-21-07, Dowty Propellers has introduced updated service bulletins that identify terminating action to the requirements of AD 2008-21-07. This proposed AD would maintain the inspection and replacement requirements of AD 2008-21-07, provide an optional terminating action to those requirements, and add a new part number to the list of affected parts. We are proposing this AD to prevent the loss of the bonded metallic L/E guard of the propeller, which could result in damage to the propeller or to the airplane, or injury to personnel.
Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Washington: Kent, Seattle, and Tacoma Second 10-Year PM10
Document Number: 2013-30878
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-26

Migratory Bird Hunting; Revision of Language for Approval of Nontoxic Shot for Use in Waterfowl Hunting
Document Number: 2013-30873
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, revise our regulations regarding the approval of nontoxic shot types to make the regulations easier to understand. The language governing determination of Estimated Environmental Concentrations (EECs) in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems is altered to make clear the shot size and number of shot to be used in calculating the EECs. We specify the pH level to be used in calculating the EEC in water. We also move the requirement for in vitro testing to Tier 1, which will allow us to better assess applications and minimize the need for Tier 2 applications. We add language for withdrawal of shot types that have been demonstrated to have detrimental environmental or biological effects, or for which no suitable field-testing device is available. We expect these changes to reduce the time required for nontoxic shot approvals. Finally, we add fees to cover our costs in evaluating these applications.
Notice of Funding Availability for Resilience Projects in Response to Hurricane Sandy
Document Number: 2013-30867
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Federal Transit Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the availability of approximately $3 billion in funds under the Public Transportation Emergency Relief Program and the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 for States, local governmental authorities, tribal governments and other FTA recipients impacted by Hurricane Sandy, which affected mid-Atlantic and northeastern states in October 2012. This announcement solicits proposals for resilience projects, defined as those projects designed and built to address current and future vulnerabilities to a public transportation facility or system due to future occurrence or recurrence of emergencies or major disasters that are likely to occur in the geographic area in which the public transportation system is located; or projected changes in development patterns, demographics, or climate change and extreme weather patterns. For the purposes of this notice, ``public transportation'' may include consideration of intercity passenger rail service. This resilience funding is intended to protect public transportation infrastructure that has been repaired or rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy or that is at risk of being damaged or destroyed by a future natural disaster. These investments reduce the likelihood that U.S. taxpayers are asked to repair the same infrastructure after a future major storm or natural disaster. Furthermore, the activities funded under this notice will help strengthen and build more resilient communities to better withstand future disasters. The Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 was enacted on January 29, 2013, and provided $10.9 billion for FTA's Emergency Relief Program for recovery, relief and resilience efforts in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy with approximately $10.4 billion still available after implementation of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 2011. FTA has previously allocated $5.7 billion for recovery and resilience projects to public transportation agencies impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Additionally, the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 permits the Secretary to transfer up to $5.383 billion to other agencies to fund programs authorized under titles 23 and 49, United States Code, in order to carry out resilience projects in areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Under this authority, DOT transferred $185 million to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) authorized the Emergency Relief Program at 49 U.S.C. 5324. With the authorization of this program, Congress provided FTA with primary responsibility for Federal reimbursements for emergency response and recovery costs after an emergency or major disaster that affects public transportation systems. The Emergency Relief Program allows FTA to make grants for eligible public transportation capital and operating costs in the event of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, that affects a wide area, including projects to protect public transportation assets from damage. Beginning in late October 2012, President Obama issued major disaster declarations for specified counties in the following States: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, and West Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia as a result of the impacts Hurricane Sandy and its remnants. Providers of public transportation in the affected areas as defined by these Presidential declarations are eligible to apply for funding for public transportation resilience projects. This notice includes a description of eligible projects, the criteria FTA will use to identify projects for funding, and a description of how to apply for funding. This announcement is available on the FTA Web site at: http://www.fta.dot.gov. A synopsis of the funding opportunity will be posted in the FIND module of the government-wide electronic grants Web site at http://www.GRANTS.GOV. FTA will announce final allocations in a Federal Register notice and on the FTA Web site.

Revision to the Idaho State Implementation Plan; Approval of Fine Particulate Matter Control Measures; Franklin County
Document Number: 2013-30857
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
On December 14, 2012, the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ) submitted a revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) to address Clean Air Act (CAA) requirements for the Idaho portion (hereafter referred to as ``Franklin County'') of the cross border Logan, Utah-Idaho fine particulate matter (PM2.5) nonattainment area (Logan UT-ID). The EPA is proposing a limited approval of PM2.5 control measures contained in the December 2012 submittal because incorporation of these measures would strengthen the Idaho SIP and reduce sources of PM2.5 emissions in Franklin County that contribute to violations of the 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS in the Logan UT-ID nonattainment area. Consequently, the EPA is not acting on the entire contents of the December 2012 SIP submission revision at this time.

Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-30853
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2011-13- 07 that applies to all Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X airplanes. AD 2011-13-07 requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to include a procedure to power off a radio-altimeter or revert to the correct radio-altimeter output. Since we issued AD 2011-13-07, an analysis showed that AFM procedures could be simplified. This proposed AD would require revising the AFM to include a simpler procedure to revert to the correct radio-altimeter output. We are proposing this AD to ensure that the flightcrew has procedures in the event of a radio- altimeter lock-up, which inhibits the display of warnings along with certain abnormal conditions, during the switch into landing mode during altitude cruise. If not corrected, this could result in the flightcrew being unaware of possible system failures that require immediate action by the flightcrew, leading to possible loss of control of the airplane.
