Notice of Availability of Funds and Solicitation for Grant Applications for the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grants Program
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL, or the Department), announces the availability of approximately $450 million in grant funds authorized for the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant Program. The TAACCCT program seeks to increase the number of workers who attain certificates, degrees, and other industry-recognized credentials, helping to meet President Obama's college graduation goal of increasing the percentage of adults with a post-secondary credential by 2020. The overarching goals of the program are to: (1) Increase attainment of degrees, certifications, certificates, diplomas, and other industry-recognized credentials that match the skills needed by employers to better prepare workers eligible for training under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for Workers Program (``TAA-eligible workers'') of chapter 2 of title II of the Trade Act of 1974, 19 U.S.C. 2271-2323, and other adults for high-wage, high-skill employment or re- employment in growth industry sectors; (2) introduce or replicate innovative and effective methods for designing and delivering instruction that address specific industry needs and lead to improved learning, completion, and other outcomes for TAA-eligible workers and other adults; and (3) demonstrate improved employment outcomes. The Department intends to make grant awards to eligible single institution applicants ranging from approximately $2,260,000 to $2,500,000, up to a total of approximately $150 million. Under this SGA, DOL intends to make approximately 15 to 25 grant awards to consortia of eligible institutions, up to a total of approximately $300 million in grant awards to consortium applicants. The Department will provide two tiers of funding for consortium grant awards, based on the number of institutions in the consortium. The complete SGA and any subsequent SGA amendments in connection with this solicitation are described in further detail on ETA's Web site at http://www.doleta.gov/grants/ or on http://www.grants.gov. The Web sites provide application information, eligibility requirements, review and selection procedures, and other program requirements governing this solicitation.

Food Labeling: Nutrient Content Claims; Alpha-Linolenic Acid, Eicosapentaenoic Acid, and Docosahexaenoic Acid Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA, the Agency, or we) is issuing this rule to prohibit certain nutrient content claims for foods, including conventional foods and dietary supplements, that contain omega-3 fatty acids, based on our determination that such nutrient content claims do not meet the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act). We are taking this action in response to three notifications submitted to us. One notification concerning nutrient content claims for alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) was submitted collectively by Alaska General Seafoods, Ocean Beauty Seafoods, Inc., and Trans-Ocean Products, Inc. (the seafood processors notification); a second notification concerning nutrient content claims for ALA, DHA, and EPA was submitted by Martek Biosciences Corp.

Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Homeland Security-DHS/ALL 020 Internal Affairs System of Records
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security department-wide system of records notice titled ``Department of Homeland Security/ALL-020 Department of Homeland Security Internal Affairs System of Records.'' This system collects and maintains records relating to investigations, including allegations of misconduct, resultant investigations conducted by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Headquarters or its components, and any of the individuals involved in such investigations with the exception of records of investigations conducted by the Office of the Inspector General. This revised notice includes several changes necessitated by the issuance of a final rule entitled Standards To Prevent, Detect, and Respond to Sexual Abuse and Assault in Confinement Facilities (6 CFR part 115) and to better reflect the DHS's internal affairs records systems, including changes to: (1) The categories of individuals first, by removing applicants for DHS employment and second, by adding any individual who is subject to or involved in an internal integrity or disciplinary inquiry, or an internal review, inspection, or investigation not handled by the DHS Office of the Inspector General (OIG); (2) the categories of records, by adding two new categories; (3) the purpose of the system, by adding internal integrity or disciplinary inquiries, and internal reviews, inspections, or investigations DHS Headquarters or its components conduct, except any of the above that the DHS OIG conducts; (4) the routine uses, by adding new routine uses (K), (O), (P), (Q), (R), (S), (T), (U), and (V), and (5) the retention periods, by adding new retention periods for review files and sexual abuse and assault files. In addition, this notice includes non-substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. The exemptions claimed in this system of records notice also reflect updates necessary for consistency with the Final Rule for Privacy Act Exemptions, 74 Fed. Reg. 42575 (Aug. 24, 2009). This system is still included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems. In addition to the changes above, this notice communicates DHS's intention to retire a different system of records from its inventory, because the Transportation Security Administration no longer requires the DHS/TSA 005 Internal Investigation Record System, 69 FR 71828 (Dec. 10, 2004).

Notice of Final Supplementary Rules for Public Lands Managed by the Carrizo Plain National Monument in Kern and San Luis Obispo Counties, CA
In accordance with the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Carrizo Plain National Monument Approved Resource Management Plan (RMP), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is establishing final supplementary rules. The Final Environmental Impact Statement that is associated with the RMP identified and thoroughly analyzed the effects of land use limitations and restrictions, and specified that supplementary rules would be required for resource protection and visitor safety. The BLM has determined that these final supplementary rules are necessary to promote the health and sustainability of the Carrizo Plain National Monument, while reducing the risks to the Monument's ecosystem that, if left unchecked, could cause undue ecological degradation. Upon publication, these final supplementary rules will supersede the interim supplementary rules that are currently in place and which apply to public lands within the Carrizo Plain National Monument. These final rules do not impose or implement any land use limitations and restrictions other than those included within the Carrizo Plain National Monument RMP, nor do they include modifications to the interim final supplementary rules published on December 21, 2012 (77 FR 75649).
Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Technical Amendments
DoD is making technical amendments to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to provide needed editorial changes.
Electronic Documents and Signatures
FMCSA proposes amendments to its regulations to allow the use of electronic records and signatures to satisfy FMCSA's regulatory requirements. The amendments would permit the use of electronic methods to sign, certify, generate, exchange or maintain records so long as the documents accurately reflect the information in the record and can be used for their intended purpose. This proposed rule would apply only to those documents that FMCSA's regulations obligate entities or individuals to retain; it would not apply to forms or other documents that must be submitted directly to FMCSA. This proposed rule responds in part to the President's January 2011 Regulatory Review and Reform initiative and would implement the Government Paperwork Elimination Act (GPEA) and the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-SIGN).
Proposal To Consider the Impact of One Engine Inoperative Procedures in Obstruction Evaluation Aeronautical Studies
This action proposes to establish a new policy that would consider the impact of one engine out procedures in the aeronautical study process conducted under existing 14 CFR part 77 criteria when the airport operations potentially affected by a determination of no hazard are able to use a dedicated one engine out flight path. Additionally, this proposed policy statement notes that the FAA has the authority to consider the cumulative effects of construction in concentrated areas when evaluating the potential for a hazard to navigation.
Assessment of Fees
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) proposes to increase assessments for certain national banks and Federal savings associations (FSAs). Under the proposal, assessment increases for banks and FSAs with assets of more than $40 billion would range between 0.32 percent and approximately 14 percent, depending on the total assets of the institution as reflected in its June 30, 2014, Consolidated Report of Condition and Income (Call Report). The proposal would not increase assessments for banks or FSAs with $40 billion or less in total assets. In conjunction with the proposed increase in assessments, the OCC proposes to update its assessment rules to conform with section 318 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Dodd-Frank Act), which reaffirmed the authority of the Comptroller of the Currency (the Comptroller) to set the amount of, and methodology for, assessments. The proposed rule would also revise the assessment rules to update references to the annual Notice of Comptroller of the Currency Fees (Notice of Fees). If adopted as final, the OCC will implement the increase in assessments by issuing an amended Notice of Fees. This amended Notice of Fees would become effective as of the semiannual assessment due on September 30, 2014.
Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Idaho Amalgamated Sugar Company Nampa BART Alternative
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving a revised Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART) determination for The Amalgamated Sugar Company, LLC (TASCO) facility, located in Nampa, Idaho. On June 22, 2011, the EPA approved Idaho's regional haze state implementation plan (SIP), including its BART determination for the TASCO facility, as meeting the visibility protection requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA). On June 29, 2012, the State submitted a regional haze SIP revision, including a new BART determination for the TASCO facility that consisted of a stricter emission limit for oxides of nitrogen (NOX), a stricter emission limit for particulate matter (PM), and an alternative control measure (BART Alternative) to replace the previously approved BART determination and emission limit for sulfur dioxide (SO2). The EPA is fully approving this SIP revision.
Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Helicopters
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2005-22-01 for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-76A, B, and C helicopters. AD 5002-22-01 required inspecting the main rotor lower bifilar arm assembly (bifilar arm assembly) for a crack, and if there is a crack, replacing the bifilar arm assembly. AD 2005-22-01 also required a one-time test for the correct torque on the lug nuts, and if necessary, conducting torque stabilization tests. This new AD retains the requirements of AD 2005-22-01 and also requires replacing the main rotor hub (MRH) pilot with a different part-numbered MRH pilot, which is terminating action for the requirements of the AD. This AD was prompted by the development of a terminating procedure for the inspections required by AD 2005-22-01. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of a bifilar lug, damage to the main rotor system, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Control of Air Pollution From Motor Vehicles: Tier 3 Motor Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards
This action establishes more stringent vehicle emissions standards and will reduce the sulfur content of gasoline beginning in 2017, as part of a systems approach to addressing the impacts of motor vehicles and fuels on air quality and public health. The gasoline sulfur standard will make emission control systems more effective for both existing and new vehicles, and will enable more stringent vehicle emissions standards. The vehicle standards will reduce both tailpipe and evaporative emissions from passenger cars, light-duty trucks, medium-duty passenger vehicles, and some heavy-duty vehicles. This will result in significant reductions in pollutants such as ozone, particulate matter, and air toxics across the country and help state and local agencies in their efforts to attain and maintain health-based National Ambient Air Quality Standards. Motor vehicles are an important source of exposure to air pollution both regionally and near roads. These vehicle standards are intended to harmonize with California's Low Emission Vehicle program, thus creating a federal vehicle emissions program that will allow automakers to sell the same vehicles in all 50 states. The vehicle standards will be implemented over the same timeframe as the greenhouse gas/fuel efficiency standards for light- duty vehicles (promulgated by EPA and the National Highway Safety Administration in 2012), as part of a comprehensive approach toward regulating emissions from motor vehicles.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Surface Transportation Board (STB) served as Cooperating Agencies for the preparation of this Final EIS.
Prohibition Against Certain Flights in the Simferopol (UKFV) Flight Information Region (FIR)
This action prohibits certain flight operations in a portion of the Simferopol (UKFV) Flight Information Region (FIR) by all U.S. air carriers; U.S. commercial operators; persons exercising the privileges of a U.S. airman certificate, except when such persons are operating a U.S.-registered aircraft for a foreign air carrier; and operators of U.S.-registered civil aircraft, except when such operators are foreign air carriers. The FAA finds this action to be necessary to prevent a potential hazard to persons and aircraft engaged in such flight operations.
