Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Atlantic Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish Fisheries; Framework Adjustment 8
Document Number: 2014-01896
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-31
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Framework Adjustment 8 (Framework 8) proposes several changes to facilitate operation of the butterfish discard cap in the longfin squid fishery and the directed butterfish fishery. Framework 8 would allocate the butterfish discard cap among trimesters in the same percentages used for the trimester allocations for longfin squid: 43 percent to Trimester I (January to April); 17 percent to Trimester II (May to August), and 40 percent to Trimester III (September to December). Each trimester would close when it is estimated that 95 percent of the butterfish discard cap has been taken. In addition, Framework 8 would allow NMFS to transfer, in either direction, up to 50 percent of unused quota between the butterfish landing allocation and the discard cap on the longfin squid fishery. This would occur near the end of the year in order to optimally utilize the butterfish that is available for fishing each year.

Notice of Availability for the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Disposition of Hangars 2 and 3, Fort Wainwright, AK
Document Number: 2014-01851
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-01-31
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army
The Department of the Army announces the availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Disposition of Hangars 2 and 3 at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. The Final EIS analyzes and evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with proposed disposition options for two historic World War II-era hangars and supporting infrastructure located on the Main Post of Fort Wainwright. Cultural resources would experience significant impacts under both alternatives; however, both the Ladd Field National Historic Landmark and Cold War Historic District will retain their historic integrity despite the loss of the hangars as contributing resources to these districts. The Army considered several reuse alternatives for the hangars. All but one of these reuse alternatives were incompatible with the current or future military mission at Fort Wainwright. The one reuse alternative that was compatible (using one of the hangars as an unmanned aerial system maintenance hangar) was determined to be prohibitively expensive. As a result, only one action alternative was considered to be reasonable and was analyzed in detail in the Final EIS: demolition of Hangars 2 and 3 (Alternative 1). This alternative is the Army's preferred alternative. The No Action Alternative was also considered and carried through for detailed analysis in the Final EIS. Under the No Action Alternative, demolition of Hangars 2 and 3 would not occur, the hangars would remain vacant, and they would be maintained at minimal levels. The No Action Alternative provides the environmental baseline conditions for comparing the impacts associated with the other alternative.
Airworthiness Directives; Beechcraft Corporation Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-01832
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011-27-51 for certain Beechcraft Corporation Models 1900, 1900C, and 1900D airplanes. AD 2011-27-51 required inspecting the elevator bob-weight and attaching linkage for correct installation and for damage or deformation to the weight and/or weight bracket with corrective action as necessary. This AD requires installation of the secondary elevator bob-weight stop bolt. The elevator bob-weight (stabilizer weight) traveling past its stop bolt may allow the attaching linkage to move over-center and lead to reduced nose down elevator control. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

Notice of Intent to Prepare a Joint Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report for Trail Management Plan, Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, California
Document Number: 2014-01675
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-01-31
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The original Notice of Intent to prepare the Trail Management Plan was published in the Federal Register on January 16, 2003, with an estimated completion date of 2004 for the joint EIS/EIR. The National Park Service (NPS) and state of California partner agencies conducted public scoping meetings in 2005 and gathered public comments on conceptual trail policies and map alternatives needed to prepare the Draft EIS/EIR. Owing to lack of funding, the NPS and partner agencies were unable to continue preparation of the EIS/EIR after the 2005 public scoping effort. State and federal funding for the EIS/EIR has now been secured, and the agencies are reinitiating joint preparation of the Trail Management Plan (TMP) and combined EIS/EIR. The NPS is the lead agency responsible for preparing the EIS, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation (CDPR) is the lead agency responsible for preparing the EIR. The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy (SMMC) and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA) will be cooperating agencies in the EIS/EIR effort. Following publication of this Notice, CDPR will reissue a Notice of Preparation to initiate the preparation of a joint EIS/EIR pursuant to the requirements of the California Environmental Policy Act (CEQA).

Finally, this rule proposes new standards and procedures by which BIS may allocate materials, services and facilities to promote the national defense. This rule implements provisions in the Defense Production Act Reauthorization of 2009 (123 Stat. 2006) (111 Pub. L. 67) (September 30, 2009) regarding publication of regulations providing standards and procedures for prioritization of contracts and orders and for allocation of materials, services, and facilities to promote the national defense under emergency and non-emergency conditions.
Defining Larger Participants of the International Money Transfer Market
Document Number: 2014-01606
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-31
Agency: Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection
The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau or CFPB) proposes to amend the regulation defining larger participants of certain consumer financial product and service markets by adding a new section to define larger participants of a market for international money transfers. The Bureau proposes this rule pursuant to its authority, under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, to supervise certain nonbank covered persons for compliance with Federal consumer financial law and for other purposes. The Bureau has the authority to supervise nonbank covered persons of all sizes in the residential mortgage, private education lending, and payday lending markets. In addition, the Bureau has the authority to supervise nonbank ``larger participant[s]'' of markets for other consumer financial products or services, as the Bureau defines by rule. The proposal (Proposed Rule) would identify a nonbank market for international money transfers and define ``larger participants'' of this market that would be subject to the Bureau's supervisory authority.

Section 619 also requires the Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Securities and Exchange Commission to also issue regulations implementing section 619 and directs the CFTC and those four agencies to consult and coordinate with each other, as appropriate, in developing and issuing the implementing rules, for the purposes of assuring, to the extent possible, that such rules are comparable and provide for consistent application and implementation. To that end, although the Commission is adopting a final rule that is not a joint rule with the other agencies, the CFTC and the other agencies have worked closely together to develop the same rule text and supplementary information, except for information specific to the CFTC or the other agencies, as applicable. In particular, the CFTC's final rule is numbered as part 75 of the Commission's regulations, the rule text refers to the ``Commission'' instead of the ``[Agency]'' and one section of the regulations addresses authority, purpose, scope, and relationship to other authorities with respect to the Commission. Furthermore, it is noted that the supplementary information generally refers to the ``Agencies'' collectively when referring to deliberations and considerations in developing the final rule by the CFTC together with the other four agencies and references to the ``final rule'' should be deemed to refer to the final rule of the Commission as herein adopted.
