Extension of the Expiration Date for State Disability Examiner Authority To Make Fully Favorable Quick Disability Determinations and Compassionate Allowances, 51241-51243 [2014-20535]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 167 / Thursday, August 28, 2014 / Rules and Regulations Conclusion We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 160 engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 1 hour per engine to comply with this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to be $13,600. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. ‘‘Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs,’’ describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in ‘‘Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES Regulatory Findings We determined that this AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, (2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979), (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska to the extent that it justifies making a regulatory distinction, and (4) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:31 Aug 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive (AD): ■ 2014–17–03 Technify Motors GmbH (Type Certificate previously held by Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH): Amendment 39–17956; Docket No. FAA–2014–0179; Directorate Identifier 2014–NE–03–AD. (a) Effective Date This AD becomes effective October 2, 2014. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to TAE 125–02–99 and TAE 125–02–114 reciprocating engines with a high-pressure (HP) fuel pump, part number (P/N) 05–7312–K005301 or P/N 05–7312– K005302. (d) Reason This AD was prompted by in-flight shutdowns on airplanes with TAE 125–02 engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the HP fuel pump, which could result in damage to the engine and damage to the airplane. (e) Actions and Compliance Comply with this AD unless already done. Remove each HP fuel pump, P/N 05–7312– K005301 and P/N 05–7312–K005302, before 300 flight hours (FHs) in service or within 55 FHs after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs later. (f) Installation Prohibition After the effective date of this AD, do not install a TAE 125–02–99 or TAE 125–02–114 engine with HP fuel pump, P/N 05–7312– K005301 or P/N 05–7312–K005302, onto any airplane. (g) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) The Manager, Engine Certification Office, FAA, may approve AMOCs to this AD. Use the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19 to make your request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES Background of the QDD and CAL Disability Examiner Authority On October 13, 2010, we published a final rule that temporarily authorized State agency disability examiners to make fully favorable determinations without the approval of a State agency medical or psychological consultant in claims that we consider under our QDD and CAL processes. 75 FR 62676. We included in 20 CFR 404.1615(c)(3) and 416.1015(c)(3) provisions by which the State agency disability examiners’ authority to make fully favorable determinations without medical or psychological consultant approval in QDD and CAL claims would no longer be effective on November 12, 2013, unless we decided to terminate the rule earlier or extend them beyond that date by publication of a final rule in the Federal Register. 75 FR 62676. On November 6, 2013, we published a final rule extending the expiration date until November 14, 2014. 78 FR 66638. Explanation of Provision This final rule extends for 1 year the authority in the rule that we published on October 13, 2010 allowing disability examiners to make fully favorable determinations in certain disability claims under our QDD and CAL processes without the approval of a medical or psychological consultant. This rule allows us to make fully favorable determinations when we can as quickly as possible. The rule also helps us process claims more efficiently because it allows State agency medical and psychological consultants to spend their time on claims that require their expertise. In the rule that we published on October 13, 2010, we noted that our experience adjudicating QDD and CAL claims led us to our decision to allow VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:31 Aug 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 disability examiners to make some fully favorable determinations without a medical or psychological consultation. When we implemented the rule, we also knew that State agencies would require some time to establish procedures, adopt necessary software modifications, and satisfy collective bargaining obligations. Extending the rule provided at least three years of data on the active processes as well as time to analyze the data and make a decision on whether to make the authority permanent. Regulatory Procedures Justification for Issuing a Final Rule Without Notice and Comment We follow the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) rulemaking procedures specified in 5 U.S.C. 553 when developing regulations. Section 702(a)(5) of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. 902(a)(5). Generally, the APA requires that an agency provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing a final rule. However, the APA provides exceptions to its notice and public comment procedures when an agency finds there is good cause for dispensing with such procedures because they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. We have determined that good cause exists for dispensing with the notice and public comment procedures for this rule. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Good cause exists because this final rule only extends the expiration date of the existing provisions. It makes no substantive changes. The current regulations expressly provide that we may extend or terminate the current rule. Therefore, we have determined that opportunity for prior comment is unnecessary, and we are issuing this rule as a final rule. In addition, for the reasons cited above, we find good cause for dispensing with the 30-day delay in the effective date of this final rule. 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). We are not making any substantive changes in our current rule, but are extending the expiration date of the rule. In addition, as discussed above, the change we are making in this final rule will allow us to better utilize our scarce administrative resources in light of the current budgetary constraints under which we are operating. For these reasons, we find that it is contrary to the public interest to delay the effective date of our rule. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Executive Order 12866, as Supplemented by Executive Order 13563 We consulted with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and determined that this final rule does not meet the criteria for a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563. Therefore, OMB did not review it. We also determined that this final rule meets the plain language requirement of Executive Order 12866. Regulatory Flexibility Act We certify that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it affects individuals only. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as amended, does not require us to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis. Paperwork Reduction Act This final rule does not create any new or affect any existing collections and, therefore, does not require OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act.

SUMMARY: We are extending the expiration date of our rule that 
authorizes State agency disability examiners to make fully favorable 
determinations without the approval of a State agency medical or 
psychological consultant in claims that we consider under our quick 
disability determination (QDD) and compassionate allowance (CAL) 
processes. The current rule will expire on November 14, 2014. In this 
final rule,

[[Page 51242]]

we are changing the November 14, 2014 expiration or ``sunset'' date to 
November 13, 2015, extending the authority for 1 year. We are making no 
other substantive changes.

DATES: This final rule is effective August 28, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background of the QDD and CAL Disability Examiner Authority

    On October 13, 2010, we published a final rule that temporarily 
authorized State agency disability examiners to make fully favorable 
determinations without the approval of a State agency medical or 
psychological consultant in claims that we consider under our QDD and 
CAL processes. 75 FR 62676.
    We included in 20 CFR 404.1615(c)(3) and 416.1015(c)(3) provisions 
by which the State agency disability examiners' authority to make fully 
favorable determinations without medical or psychological consultant 
approval in QDD and CAL claims would no longer be effective on November 
12, 2013, unless we decided to terminate the rule earlier or extend 
them beyond that date by publication of a final rule in the Federal 
Register. 75 FR 62676. On November 6, 2013, we published a final rule 
extending the expiration date until November 14, 2014. 78 FR 66638.

Explanation of Provision

    This final rule extends for 1 year the authority in the rule that 
we published on October 13, 2010 allowing disability examiners to make 
fully favorable determinations in certain disability claims under our 
QDD and CAL processes without the approval of a medical or 
psychological consultant. This rule allows us to make fully favorable 
determinations when we can as quickly as possible. The rule also helps 
us process claims more efficiently because it allows State agency 
medical and psychological consultants to spend their time on claims 
that require their expertise.
    In the rule that we published on October 13, 2010, we noted that 
our experience adjudicating QDD and CAL claims led us to our decision 
to allow disability examiners to make some fully favorable 
determinations without a medical or psychological consultation. When we 
implemented the rule, we also knew that State agencies would require 
some time to establish procedures, adopt necessary software 
modifications, and satisfy collective bargaining obligations. Extending 
the rule provided at least three years of data on the active processes 
as well as time to analyze the data and make a decision on whether to 
make the authority permanent.

Regulatory Procedures

Justification for Issuing a Final Rule Without Notice and Comment

    We follow the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) rulemaking 
procedures specified in 5 U.S.C. 553 when developing regulations. 
Section 702(a)(5) of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. 902(a)(5). 
Generally, the APA requires that an agency provide prior notice and 
opportunity for public comment before issuing a final rule. However, 
the APA provides exceptions to its notice and public comment procedures 
when an agency finds there is good cause for dispensing with such 
procedures because they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest.
    We have determined that good cause exists for dispensing with the 
notice and public comment procedures for this rule. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). 
Good cause exists because this final rule only extends the expiration 
date of the existing provisions. It makes no substantive changes. The 
current regulations expressly provide that we may extend or terminate 
the current rule. Therefore, we have determined that opportunity for 
prior comment is unnecessary, and we are issuing this rule as a final 
rule.
    In addition, for the reasons cited above, we find good cause for 
dispensing with the 30-day delay in the effective date of this final 
rule. 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). We are not making any substantive changes in 
our current rule, but are extending the expiration date of the rule. In 
addition, as discussed above, the change we are making in this final 
rule will allow us to better utilize our scarce administrative 
resources in light of the current budgetary constraints under which we 
are operating. For these reasons, we find that it is contrary to the 
public interest to delay the effective date of our rule.

Executive Order 12866, as Supplemented by Executive Order 13563

    We consulted with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and 
determined that this final rule does not meet the criteria for a 
significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, as 
supplemented by Executive Order 13563. Therefore, OMB did not review 
it.
    We also determined that this final rule meets the plain language 
requirement of Executive Order 12866.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    We certify that this final rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it 
affects individuals only. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as 
amended, does not require us to prepare a regulatory flexibility 
analysis.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This final rule does not create any new or affect any existing 
collections and, therefore, does not require OMB approval under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act.
