Safety Glazing Standards
FRA proposes to revise and clarify existing regulations related to the use of glazing materials in the windows of locomotives, passenger cars, and cabooses. This proposed rule would reduce paperwork and other economic burdens on the rail industry by removing a stenciling requirement for locomotives, passenger cars, and cabooses that are required to be equipped with glazing. This proposed rule would also clarify the application of the regulations to antiquated equipment and to the end locations of all equipment to provide more certainty to the rail industry and more narrowly address FRA's safety concerns. FRA is also proposing to clarify the definition of passenger car and separately to update the rule by removing certain compliance dates that are no longer necessary.

Louisiana LNG Energy LLC; Application for Long-Term Authorization to Export Liquefied Natural Gas Produced From Domestic Natural Gas Resources to Non-Free Trade Agreement Countries for a 25-Year Period
The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application) filed on February 18, 2014, by Louisiana LNG Energy LLC (LLNG), requesting long- term, multi-contract authorization to export two million metric tons per year (mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from domestic sources, which LLNG states is equivalent to approximately 103.4 billion cubic feet per year (Bcf/yr) of natural gas (0.28 Bcf per day (Bcf/d)). LLNG seeks authorization to export the LNG for a 25-year term from a proposed LNG liquefaction project to be located near mile marker 46 on the East Bank of the Mississippi River, down-river from the Port of New Orleans, in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana (Project). LLNG requests authorization to export this LNG by vessel to any country with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas (non-FTA countries), and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy. LLNG seeks to export this LNG on its own behalf and as agent for other parties who hold title to the LNG at the time of export. LLNG requests that this authorization commence on the earlier of the date of first export or 10 years from the date the authorization is issued. The Application was filed under section 3(a) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA).
Preliminary Determination Regarding Energy Efficiency Improvements in the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has preliminarily determined that the 2015 edition of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) would improve energy efficiency in buildings subject to the code compared to the 2012 edition. DOE analysis indicates that buildings meeting the 2015 IECC (as compared with buildings meeting the 2012 IECC) would result in national source energy savings of approximately 1.03 percent, site energy savings of approximately 1.12 percent, and energy cost savings of approximately 0.90 percent of residential building energy consumption, as regulated by the IECC. If this determination is finalized, each State would be required by statute to certify that it has reviewed the provisions of its residential building code regarding energy efficiency, and made a determination as to whether to update their code to meet or exceed the 2015 IECC. Additionally, this notice provides guidance to States on these processes and associated certifications.
Determination Regarding Energy Efficiency Improvements in ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2013: Energy Standard for Buildings, Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has determined that the 2013 edition of the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES \1\ Standard 90.1: Energy Standard for Buildings, Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings would improve energy efficiency in buildings subject to the code compared to the 2010 edition of Standard 90.1. DOE has determined that buildings built to Standard 90.1-2013, as compared with buildings built to Standard 90.1- 2010, would result in national source energy savings of approximately 8.5 percent and site energy savings of approximately 7.6 percent of commercial building energy consumption. Upon publication of this affirmative determination, States are required to certify that they have reviewed the provisions of their commercial building code regarding energy efficiency, and, as necessary, updated their codes to meet or exceed Standard 90.1-2013. Additionally, this notice provides guidance to States on certifications and requests for extensions of deadlines for certification statements.
Nominations Open for the Vacancies on the National Advisory Council on Maternal, Infant and Fetal Nutrition

Parent participants are appointed for 2- year terms. Members appointed from USDA and HHS serve at the pleasure of their respective Secretaries. The Council studies the operation of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and related programs such as the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). Categories of membership are specified by law. To assure a balance of differing views, Council members are drawn from Federal, State and local governments, industry and organizations with a common interest in the management of WIC and CSFP, including parent participants in both programs. The vacant positions include:
Agriculture Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage Programs
This rule implements the new Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) Programs authorized by the Agricultural Act of 2014 (the 2014 Farm Bill). It also includes conforming changes to certain Farm Service Agency (FSA) regulations that apply to multiple programs. ARC and PLC provide producers a choice between a program that provides counter-cyclical type of payment supportPLC, and a revenue support type of programARC. During a defined election period, current producers can elect different programs for different covered commodities on a farm, for example, choosing PLC for corn and ARC county option for soybeans on the same farm. ARC offers the additional choice of a revenue guarantee based on average revenue for a county or on actual historical revenue for an individual farm. If a producer elects ARC individual coverage based on historical revenue for that specific farm, however, all the farm's covered commodities are elected with that option, with no option for PLC on that farm. This rule specifies the eligibility requirements, enrollment procedures, and payment calculations for ARC and PLC.
Special Access Proceeding; Data Collection Amended to Reflect OMB Approval; Filing Deadline Announced; Petitions for Reconsideration Addressed
In this Order on Reconsideration, the Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) amends the special access data collection, outlined in the Commission's Data Collection Order to reflect the approval received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104-13. The Commission also announces that responses to the data collection are due by December 15, 2014 and addresses two petitions seeking reconsideration of the Data Collection Implementation Order released by the Bureau that clarified and amended the collection. These actions allow the Commission to move forward with the collection of data for a comprehensive analysis of the special access market. This collection is vital to the Commission's efforts to reform the rules applicable to the provision of special access services by incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) in areas subject to price cap regulation.
Domestic Licensing of Special Nuclear Material-Written Reports and Clarifying Amendments
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations related to reportable safety events involving special nuclear material. This rule increases the time licensees are allowed to submit a written follow-up report from within 30 days to within 60 days after the initial report of an event, updates the reporting framework for certain situations, and removes redundant reporting requirements. These amendments affect a licensee or an applicant that is, or plans to be, authorized to possess greater than a critical mass of special nuclear material. This action resulted from a petition for rulemaking (PRM) received by the NRC (PRM-70-8). As a result of this direct final rule, the NRC's ``FCSS [Fuel Cycle Safety and Safeguards] Interim Staff Guidance-12, Revision 1, 10 CFR [Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations] Part 70Reportable Safety Events'' contains minor editorial updates that reflect the amendments.
