Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
The Defense Health Agency proposes to alter an existing system of records, EDHA 24, entitled ``Defense and Veterans Eye Injury and Vision Registry (DVEIVR)'' in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This system longitudinally collects and analyzes diagnoses, medical and surgical interventions, other treatments, and the results of eye injuries and/or visual dysfunctions/disorders incurred by members of the Armed Forces while serving on active duty; longitudinally collects from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical and rehabilitation treatment, surgical procedure, and/or outcome information about individuals who receive treatment from the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and are listed in the DVEIVR to support readiness, enhance best practices, guide research, and inform policy; encourages and facilitates studies, and the development of best practices and clinical education, on eye injuries and/or visual dysfunctions/disorders incurred by members of the Armed Forces; supports collaborative DoD and VA programs that may provide vision screening, diagnosis, and rehabilitative management to those with eye injuries and/or visual dysfunctions/disorders, and guides vision research, at DoD medical treatment facilities and VA medical centers; and is a management tool for statistical analysis, longitudinal data collection, reporting, evaluating program effectiveness, guiding research, and informing policy.
Clean Air Act Operating Permit Program; Petition to Object to Title V Permits for the Homer City and Bruce Mansfield Electric Generating Facilities; Pennsylvania
Pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator signed an Order, dated July 30, 2014, partially granting and partially denying petitions to object to two state operating permits issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP). The Order responds to a September 12, 2012 petition, and a May 15, 2013 supplement to that petition, relating to EME Homer City Generation L.P.'s Homer City plant in Indiana County, as well as an October 22, 2012 petition, which relates to First Energy Generation Corporation's Bruce Mansfield plant in Beaver County. The petitions were submitted by the Sierra Club. In the Bruce Mansfield petition, Sierra Club was joined by the Little Blue Regional Action Group (LBRAG), Environmental Integrity Project (EIP), Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP), and Clean Air Council (CAC). This Order constitutes final action on those petitions requesting that the Administrator object to the issuance of the proposed CAA title V permit.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-102, -103, -106, -201, -202, -301, -311, and -315 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate new limitations for fuel tank systems. We are proposing this AD to prevent potential ignition sources within the fuel system, which could result in a fuel tank explosion.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Intent To Revoke Antidumping Duty Order in Part
On March 12, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') received a request for revocation, in part, of the antidumping duty (``AD'') order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') \1\ with respect to certain wall bed units. We preliminarily determine that the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the Order pertains lack interest in the relief provided by the Order with respect to certain wall bed units described below. Accordingly, we intend to revoke, in part, the Order as to imports of certain wall bed units. The Department invites interested parties to comment on these preliminary results.
Amended Notice of Intent To Prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) and To Conduct Additional Scoping for the Proposed Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership Line 67 Expansion Project
On March 15, 2013, the U.S. Department of State (the Department) issued a Notice of Intent To Prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) and To Conduct Scoping and To Initiate Consultation Consistent With the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) for the Proposed Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership, Line 67 Capacity Expansion Project (2013 NOI) in the Federal Register (78 FR 16565-67). The 2013 NOI informed the public that the Department would be preparing an SEIS in support of its review of a November 2012 application from Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership (Enbridge) for a new Presidential Permit that would, if granted, authorize Enbridge to operate its existing Line 67 at the pipeline's full design capacity. A description of the proposed project is included in the 2013 NOI. Since that time, Enbridge has amended and supplemented its November 2012 application. In June 2014, Enbridge informed the Department that Enbridge intends to increase pumping capacity outside of the Line 67 ``border segment'' (the portion of Line 67 from the Canadian border to the first main line shut-off valve, which is the segment that would be covered by a Presidential Permit), and to interconnect Line 67 with another Enbridge line (Line 3) on either side of the border segment. Enbridge is proceeding with certain elements of these plans. Enbridge submitted documents for public release in July 2014 which can be found at http://www.state.gov/e/enr/applicant/applicants/c55571.htm. In light of the changes in the project description, the Department is issuing this amended NOI and is conducting additional public scoping. In addition, a different third-party contractor is assisting the Department with the SEIS process than the firm that was named in the 2013 NOI.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (Previously Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH) (Airbus Helicopters) Helicopters
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model EC135P1, EC135T1, EC135P2, EC135T2, EC135P2+, EC135T2+, and MBB-BK 117 C-2 helicopters. This proposed AD would require inspecting certain washers for movement and making appropriate repairs if the washers move. This proposed AD is prompted by play found between the Smart Electro Mechanical Actuator (SEMA) and the control rod during installation work on a helicopter. The proposed actions are intended to prevent loss of concerned control axis and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Animal Welfare; Importation of Live Dogs
We are amending the regulations to implement an amendment to the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 added a new section to the AWA to restrict the importation of certain live dogs. Consistent with this amendment, this rule prohibits the importation of dogs, with limited exceptions, from any part of the world into the continental United States or Hawaii for purposes of resale, research, or veterinary treatment, unless the dogs are in good health, have received all necessary vaccinations, and are at least 6 months of age. This action is necessary to implement the amendment to the AWA and will help to ensure the welfare of imported dogs.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (Previously Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH) (Airbus Helicopters) Helicopters
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model MBB-BK 117 C-2 helicopters with certain duplex trim actuators installed. This proposed AD would require repetitively inspecting the lateral and longitudinal trim actuator output levers for correct torque of the nuts. This proposed AD is prompted by a design review that the attachment screws can become lost under certain circumstances. The proposed actions are intended to prevent the loss of an attachment screw, which could result in movement of the output lever in an axial direction, contact of a bolt connecting the control rod to an output lever with the actuator housing, and subsequent loss of helicopter control.
Notice of Public Meeting, Dakotas Resource Advisory Council Meeting
In accordance with the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) and the Federal Advisory Committee Act of 1972 (FACA), the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Dakotas Resource Advisory Council (RAC) will meet as indicated below.
