ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); reopening of comment period. AGENCY: This document announces the reopening of the comment period for the above-referenced NPRM, which proposed the adoption of a new airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all The Boeing Company Model MD–90–30 airplanes and that would supersede AD 97–11–07 and AD 99–18–23. The NPRM proposed to continue to 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. The NPRM also proposed to require revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate a new PSE requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer and its mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:33 Apr 10, 2014 Jkt 232001 associated inspections. This reopening of the comment period is necessary to ensure that all interested persons have ample opportunity to submit any written relevant data, views, or arguments regarding the proposed requirements of the NPRM.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We proposed to amend 14 CFR Part 39 by adding a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would apply to all The Boeing Company Model MD–90–30 airplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on December 9, 2013 (78 FR 73739). The NPRM proposed to supersede AD 97–11–07, Amendment 39–10036 (62 FR 27941, May 22, 1997); and AD 99–18–23, Amendment 39–11289 (64 FR 48284, September 3, 1999). The NPRM proposed to continue to require revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Airworthiness to incorporate certain compliance times for principal structural elements (PSE) inspections and replacement times for safe-life limited parts. The NPRM also proposed to require revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate a new PSE requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer and its associated inspections. The NPRM also invites comments on its overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects. Events Leading to the Reopening of the Comment Period Since we issued the NPRM (78 FR 73739, December 9, 2013), we have determined that the Relevant Service Information section in the preamble of the NPRM did not adequately describe the service information. We specified to see the service information, Boeing MD– 90 Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI) Report No. MDC– 94K9000, Revision 6, dated September 2011, at http://www.regulations.gov. However, we did not post the service information at http:// www.regulations.gov because we do not have clearance to post Boeing MD–90 Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI) Report No. MDC–94K9000, Revision 6, dated September 2011, at the NPRM stage of the AD process. Description of Service Information Boeing MD–90 Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI) Report No. MDC–94K9000, Revision 6, dated September 2011, describes PSE inspections, compliance times, and replacement times for safe-life limited parts, which are required by AD 97–11– 07, Amendment 39–10036 (62 FR 27941, May 22, 1997); and AD 99–18– 23, Amendment 39–11289 (64 FR 48284, September 3, 1999). Boeing MD– 90 Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI) Report No. MDC– 94K9000, Revision 6, dated September 2011, also describes a new PSE requirement for the rear spar of the horizontal stabilizer and its associated inspections. FAA’s Determination We considered it necessary to adequately describe the service information and found it appropriate to reopen the comment period to give all interested persons additional time to examine the proposed requirements of the NPRM (78 FR 73739, December 9, 2013) and submit comments. We have determined that reopening the comment period for 25 days will not compromise the safety of these airplanes.

On November 20, 2013, we published a document in the Federal Register (78 FR 69612) announcing our intention to establish a negotiated rulemaking committee to prepare proposed regulations to address program integrity and improvement issues for the Title IV Federal Student Aid Programs. In that notice, we set a schedule for three sessions of committee meetings and requested nominations for individual negotiators who represent key stakeholder constituencies for the issues to be negotiated to serve on the committee. At the committee meeting on March 26, 2013, the Department proposed that a fourth committee meeting be scheduled to ensure that the Committee had sufficient time to discuss the issues, in view of additional time being devoted to the gathering and consideration of data pertinent to defining ‘‘adverse credit’’ for borrowers in the Federal Direct PLUS Loan Program. The Committee approved the proposal by consensus. We now announce the addition of a fourth session consisting of committee meetings to take place May 19–20, 2014, to focus on the development of proposed regulations to define ‘‘adverse credit,’’ but also to discuss, subject to time available, any other issues remaining open from the initial three meetings. The meetings will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The schedule for the fourth session follows. Schedule for Negotiations: The committee will meet for its fourth and final session on May 19–20, 2014. The meetings will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The meetings will be held at the U.S. Department of Education at: 1990 K Street NW., Eighth Floor Conference Center, Washington, DC 20006.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); reopening of comment 
period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document announces the reopening of the comment period 
for the above-referenced NPRM, which proposed the adoption of a new 
airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all The Boeing Company 
Model MD-90-30 airplanes and that would supersede AD 97-11-07 and AD 
99-18-23. The NPRM proposed to continue to 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. The NPRM also proposed to require revising 
the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate a new PSE 
requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer and its 
associated inspections. This reopening of the comment period is 
necessary to ensure that all interested persons have ample opportunity 
to submit any written relevant data, views, or arguments regarding the 
proposed requirements of the NPRM.

DATES: We must receive comments on this NPRM (78 FR 73739, December 9, 
2013) by May 6, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We proposed to amend 14 CFR Part 39 by 
adding a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would apply to all 
The Boeing Company Model MD-90-30 airplanes. The NPRM was published in 
the Federal Register on December 9, 2013 (78 FR 73739). The NPRM 
proposed to supersede AD 97-11-07, Amendment 39-10036 (62 FR 27941, May 
22, 1997); and AD 99-18-23, Amendment 39-11289 (64 FR 48284, September 
3, 1999). The NPRM proposed to continue to 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. The NPRM also proposed to require revising 
the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate a new PSE 
requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer and its 
associated inspections. The NPRM also invites comments on its overall 
regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects.

Events Leading to the Reopening of the Comment Period

    Since we issued the NPRM (78 FR 73739, December 9, 2013), we have 
determined that the Relevant Service Information section in the 
preamble of the NPRM did not adequately describe the service 
information. We specified to see the service information, Boeing MD-90 
Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI) Report No. MDC-94K9000, 
Revision 6, dated September 2011, at http://www.regulations.gov. 
However, we did not post the service information at http://www.regulations.gov because we do not have clearance to post Boeing MD-
90 Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI) Report No. MDC-94K9000, 
Revision 6, dated September 2011, at the NPRM stage of the AD process.

Description of Service Information

    Boeing MD-90 Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI) Report 
No. MDC-94K9000, Revision 6, dated September 2011, describes PSE 
inspections, compliance times, and replacement times for safe-life 
limited parts, which are required by AD 97-11-07, Amendment 39-10036 
(62 FR 27941, May 22, 1997); and AD 99-18-23, Amendment 39-11289 (64 FR 
48284, September 3, 1999). Boeing MD-90 Airworthiness Limitations 
Instructions (ALI) Report No. MDC-94K9000, Revision 6, dated September 
2011, also describes a new PSE requirement for the rear spar of the 
horizontal stabilizer and its associated inspections.

FAA's Determination

    We considered it necessary to adequately describe the service 
information and found it appropriate to reopen the comment period to 
give all interested persons additional time to examine the proposed 
requirements of the NPRM (78 FR 73739, December 9, 2013) and submit 
comments. We have determined that reopening the comment period for 25 
days will not compromise the safety of these airplanes.

Extension of Comment Period

    The comment period for Docket No. FAA-2013-0981, Directorate 
Identifier 2013-NM-032-AD, has been revised. The comment period now 
closes May 6, 2014.
    No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; 
therefore, the NPRM (78 FR 73739, December 9, 2013) is not republished 
in the Federal Register.
