Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Proposed rule; withdrawal. AGENCY: This document withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would have applied to certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. Models PA–28–140, PA– 28–150, PA–28–160, PA–28–180, PA– 28R–180, and PA–28R–200 airplanes. The proposed airworthiness directive (AD) would have superseded AD 71– 21–08, Amendment 39–1312, which currently requires replacement of the fuel selector valve cover. This proposed AD would have added additional airplanes to the AD’s applicability section and changed the compliance time of the required actions. Since issuance of the NPRM, the FAA has reevaluated this airworthiness concern and determined that an unsafe condition does not exist that would warrant AD action. This withdrawal does not prevent the FAA from initiating future rulemaking on this subject. SUMMARY: As of June 27, 2014, the proposed rule published August 20, 2013 (78 FR 51121), is withdrawn.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to Piper Aircraft, Inc. Models PA– 28–140, PA–28–150, PA–28–160, PA– 28–180, PA–28R–180, and PA–28R–200 airplanes. That NPRM published in the Federal Register on August 20, 2013 (78 FR 51121). That NPRM proposed to supersede AD 71–21–08, Amendment 39–1312 (36 FR 19572, October 8, 1971), by adding airplanes to and changing the compliance time of AD 71–21–08 fuel selector valve cover replacement requirements. Because of the comments received on the NPRM (78 FR 51121, August 20, 2013), the FAA re-evaluated the data collected on the safety concern and concluded that: • There was evidence of pilot inexperience and an absence of fuel selector valve maintenance (in accordance with Piper Service Bulletin 355, dated June 5, 1972) in the Piper PA–28–180 crash of December 28, 2011; and • The low frequency of PA–28 series safety events due to the inadvertent selection of the ‘‘OFF’’ position of fuel selector valves, since AD 71–21–08 was published on October 13, 1971, does not warrant AD action. To mitigate the safety concern from recurring, the FAA may take other airworthiness action such as a special airworthiness information bulletin (SAIB) to recommend the actions contained in the proposed rule and capture the concerns identified by the public during the NPRM (78 FR 51121, August 20, 2013) comment period. Withdrawal of this NPRM (78 FR 51121, August 20, 2013) constitutes only such action and does not preclude the agency from issuing future rulemaking on this issue, nor does it commit the agency to any course of action in the future. Regulatory Findings Since this action only withdraws an NPRM, it is neither a proposed nor a final rule and therefore, is not covered under Executive Order 12866, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, or DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Purpose The Commission is proposing to amend its FOIA regulations at 17 CFR 200.80 and 17 CFR 200.80e. A. Proposed Changes to Fee Regulations The fees the Commission charges for searching, reviewing, and duplicating records pursuant to FOIA requests are currently set forth in 17 CFR 200.80e, Appendix E—Schedule of fees for records services. The Commission believes it is appropriate to update its fee schedule for searching and reviewing records in accordance with Uniform Freedom of Information Act Fee Schedule and Guidelines promulgated by the Office of Management and Budget.1 The OMB Guidelines, in complying with the Freedom of Information Reform Act of 1986, require that each agency’s fees be based upon its ‘‘direct reasonable operating costs of providing FOIA services.’’ 2 The guidelines state 1 See 2 Id. PO 00000 52 FR 10011 (March 27, 1987). at 10015. Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 36443 that ‘‘[a]gencies should charge fees that recoup the full allowable direct costs they incur.’’ 3 OMB recognized that costs would necessarily vary from agency to agency and directed that each agency promulgate regulations specifying the charges for search, review, and duplication. The OMB Guidelines state that ‘‘agencies should charge at the salary rate[s] [i.e. basic pay plus 16 percent] of the employee[s] making the search’’ or, ‘‘where a homogeneous class of personnel is used exclusively . . . agencies may establish an average rate for the range of grades typically involved.’’ 4 The Commission’s current regulation contains set rates for FOIA request search and review activities: $16/hour for grade 11 and below; and $28/hour for grade 12 and above. The Commission is proposing to revise its regulation to reflect the formula contained in the OMB Guidelines (basic pay plus 16 percent) rather than setting forth a fixed price. Moreover, the proposed regulation provides that the Commission will establish a representative rate for each of the three different groups of grades typically involved: Personnel in grades SK 8 or below; personnel in grades SK 9 to 13; and personnel in grades SK 14 or above.5 The Commission’s Web site will contain current rates for search and review fees for each class. The rates will be updated as salaries change and will be determined by using the formula in the regulation. For the current calendar year, the fees would be assessed as follows: SK–8 or below: $29/hour; SK–9 to 13: $61/hour; and SK–14 or above: $89/hour.6 In connection with this revision, the Commission is also proposing to remove the first sentence of 17 CFR 200.80(e)(1) which provides that up to one-half hour of staff time devoted to searching for and reviewing Commission records will 3 Id. at 10018. 4 Id. 5 As per the OMB Guidelines, fees for searches of computerized records will continue to be based on the actual cost to the Commission which includes machine and operator time. 17 CFR 200.80(e)(9)(i). 6 The SK–8 and below rate is estimated using the maximum and minimum annual salary of a Washington, DC-based SK–6 staffer. For 2014 this is [($41,619 + $63,307)/2][1/2087 hours per year][1.16 OMB markup factor] = $29 per hour. Similarly, the SK–9 through SK–13 category is estimated by using the max and min annual salary of a Washington, DC-based SK–12 staffer, who typically does most of the work of a FOIA request. For 2014 this is [($82,037 + $138,211)/2][1/2087 hours/year][1.16 OMB markup factor] = $61/hour. Finally, the SK–14 and above category is estimated by using the max and min salary of a Washington, DC-based SK–15 supervisor. For 2014 this is [($118,743 + $200,033)/2][1/2087 hours per year][1.16 OMB markup factor] = $89/hour. E:\FR\FM\27JNP1.SGM 27JNP1

SUMMARY: This document withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
that would have applied to certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. Models PA-28-
140, PA-28-150, PA-28-160, PA-28-180, PA-28R-180, and PA-28R-200 
airplanes. The proposed airworthiness directive (AD) would have 
superseded AD 71-21-08, Amendment 39-1312, which currently requires 
replacement of the fuel selector valve cover. This proposed AD would 
have added additional airplanes to the AD's applicability section and 
changed the compliance time of the required actions. Since issuance of 
the NPRM, the FAA has re-evaluated this airworthiness concern and 
determined that an unsafe condition does not exist that would warrant 
AD action. This withdrawal does not prevent the FAA from initiating 
future rulemaking on this subject.

DATES: As of June 27, 2014, the proposed rule published August 20, 2013 
(78 FR 51121), is withdrawn.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to include an AD that would apply to Piper Aircraft, Inc. 
Models PA-28-140, PA-28-150, PA-28-160, PA-28-180, PA-28R-180, and PA-
28R-200 airplanes. That NPRM published in the Federal Register on 
August 20, 2013 (78 FR 51121). That NPRM proposed to supersede AD 71-
21-08, Amendment 39-1312 (36 FR 19572, October 8, 1971), by adding 
airplanes to and changing the compliance time of AD 71-21-08 fuel 
selector valve cover replacement requirements.
    Because of the comments received on the NPRM (78 FR 51121, August 
20, 2013), the FAA re-evaluated the data collected on the safety 
concern and concluded that:
     There was evidence of pilot inexperience and an absence of 
fuel selector valve maintenance (in accordance with Piper Service 
Bulletin 355, dated June 5, 1972) in the Piper PA-28-180 crash of 
December 28, 2011; and
     The low frequency of PA-28 series safety events due to the 
inadvertent selection of the ``OFF'' position of fuel selector valves, 
since AD 71-21-08 was published on October 13, 1971, does not warrant 
AD action.
    To mitigate the safety concern from recurring, the FAA may take 
other airworthiness action such as a special airworthiness information 
bulletin (SAIB) to recommend the actions contained in the proposed rule 
and capture the concerns identified by the public during the NPRM (78 
FR 51121, August 20, 2013) comment period.
    Withdrawal of this NPRM (78 FR 51121, August 20, 2013) constitutes 
only such action and does not preclude the agency from issuing future 
rulemaking on this issue, nor does it commit the agency to any course 
of action in the future.

Regulatory Findings

    Since this action only withdraws an NPRM, it is neither a proposed 
nor a final rule and therefore, is not covered under Executive Order 
12866, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, or DOT Regulatory Policies and 
Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979).
