Notice of HUD's Funding Availability for Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015 Housing Counseling Training Grant Program
This notice announces that HUD has posted on http:// www.Grants.gov and http://www.HUD.gov its FY 2014 Housing Counseling Training Grant Program NOFA. The Housing Counseling Training NOFA is comprised of both the General Section to the Department's FY 2014 NOFAs for Discretionary Programs (General Section) published February 19, 2014 and this NOFA. In addition to the application requirements set forth in the NOFA, applicants must also comply with the requirements established in the General Section, and all Housing Counseling Training Program requirements. With this single FY 2014-FY 2015 NOFA and corresponding FY 2014 HUD General Section, HUD may conduct a competition for housing counseling training grant funding for both FY 2014 and FY 2015. HUD would use the applications received under this FY 2014 and FY 2015 NOFA, and the corresponding scores and funding methodology relevant to this NOFA, to make awards for FY2014, utilizing FY 2014 appropriations. HUD would use the same list and methodology to award FY 2015 funds, subject to the availability of appropriations and any other authority that may govern the award of FY 2015 funds. Grantees that receive FY 2014 housing counseling training funding will be contacted by HUD to determine their interest in FY 2015 funding. HUD would then rerun the FY 2014 funding formula, utilizing FY 2014 application data/scores, should FY 2015 funding becomes available, for those FY 2014 grantees that express interest and remain eligible. Doing this will enable HUD to make awards quickly after FY 2015 appropriations become available, and significantly reduce the application burden for counseling agencies. The General Section for FY 2014 will govern both the FY 2014 and FY 2015 comprehensive housing counseling grant funds.

Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube Products From Turkey: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; Calendar Year 2012 and Intent To Rescind Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, in Part
The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on circular welded carbon steel pipe and tube products from Turkey (steel pipe) for the period of review (POR) of January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012. The review covers one producer/exporter of subject merchandise that the Department selected for individual examination: Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (BMB), and Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S. (Istikbal), (collectively, the Borusan Companies). Additionally, this review covers two firms that were not individually examined: Erbosan Erciyas Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (Erbosan AS) and Erbosan Erciyas Pipe Industry and Trade Co. Kayseri Free Zone Branch (Erbosan FZB), (collectively Erbosan), and Tosyali dis Ticaret A.S. (Tosyali) and Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S. (Toscelik Profil), (collectively, Toscelik). We preliminarily determine that the Borusan Companies received countervailable subsidies during the POR but that the total net subsidy rate is less than 0.5 percent ad valorem and, therefore, de minimis. For purposes of these preliminary results, we assigned Erbosan and Toscelik, the non-selected respondents, net subsidy rates of de minimis and 0.83 percent ad valorem, respectively. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

Public Water System Supervision Program Approval for the State of Ohio
Notice is hereby given that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has tentatively approved revisions to the State of Ohio's public water system supervision program. Ohio EPA has revised two of its rules to comply with the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations, including the Long-Term 1 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT1ESWTR) and the Lead and Copper Rule Short-Term Revisions and Clarifications. EPA has determined that these revisions are consistent with and no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve these revisions to the State of Ohio's public water system supervision program, thereby giving Ohio EPA primary enforcement responsibility for these regulations. Ohio EPA has been implementing the LT1ESWTR since August 3, 2004, and Ohio EPA has been administering the revised lead and copper requirements since July 24, 2009. Any interested party may request a public hearing. A request for a public hearing must be submitted by May 23, 2014 to the Regional Administrator at the EPA Region 5 address shown below. The Regional Administrator may deny frivolous or insubstantial requests for a hearing. However, if a substantial request for a public hearing is made by May 23, 2014 EPA Region 5 will hold a public hearing, and a notice of such hearing will be given in the Federal Register and a newspaper of general circulation. If EPA Region 5 does not receive a timely and appropriate request for a hearing and the Regional Administrator does not elect to hold a hearing on her own motion, this determination shall become final and effective on May 23, 2014. Any request for a public hearing shall include the following information: The name, address, and telephone number of the individual, organization, or other entity requesting a hearing; a brief statement of the requesting person's interest in the Regional Administrator's determination and a brief statement of the information that the requesting person intends to submit at such hearing; and the signature of the individual making the request, or, if the request is made on behalf of an organization or other entity, the signature of a responsible official of the organization or other entity.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for The Boeing Company Model 707 airplanes, Model 720 and 720B series airplanes, Model 727 airplanes, and Model 737- 100, -200, and -200C series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a fire which originated near the first officer's area and caused extensive damage to the flight deck on a different airplane model. This proposed AD would require replacing the low-pressure oxygen hoses with non-conductive low-pressure oxygen hoses in the flight compartment. We are proposing this AD to prevent inadvertent electrical current from passing through an internal, anti-collapse spring of the low-pressure oxygen hose, which can cause the low-pressure oxygen hose to melt or burn, leading to an oxygen-fed fire and/or smoke in the flight deck.

Methyl Bromide; Cancellation Order for Certain Pesticide Registrations and Amendment To Terminate a Certain Use; Amendment to Existing Stocks Provision
EPA issued a cancellation order in the Federal Register of May 20, 2011 to, among other things, terminate use of products containing methyl bromide on golf courses. The effective date of cancellation for that use was December 31, 2013. The order provided that existing stocks of methyl bromide products that include the use on golf courses could be sold and distributed for 120 days after the effective date of cancellation, that is, until April 30, 2014. Two registrants have requested that EPA revise the cancellation order for the pesticide product registrations identified in Table 1 of Unit II to extend the last allowable date for sale and distribution of existing stocks of those products from April 30, 2014 to November 30, 2014 to allow sale and distribution of those existing stocks for golf course resurfacing during the 2014 use season. In this notice, EPA is amending the existing stocks provisions in the May 20, 2011 order to allow the sale or distribution of existing stocks of the identified methyl bromide products only for use on golf courses through November 30, 2014, and to limit the use of existing stocks of those products that are purchased after April 30, 2014 to use only on golf courses.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-300, 747- 400, 747-400D series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) indicating that the upper deck tension ties are subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracking in the upper deck tension ties, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary; tension tie replacement; and post-replacement repetitive inspections for cracking in the upper deck tension ties, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the upper deck tension ties. Severed or disconnected tension ties at multiple locations could result in rapid decompression and loss of structural integrity of the airplane.
