Onions Grown in South Texas; Continuance Referendum
Document Number: 2014-25653
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-29
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This document directs that a referendum be conducted among eligible producers of onions grown in South Texas to determine whether they favor continuance of the marketing order that regulates the handling of onions produced in the production area. This is the second referendum being conducted this year; the first was conducted in May 2014.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is amending its regulations governing when U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will issue correspondence, notices of decisions, and documents evidencing lawful status in the United States to an applicant, petitioner, attorney, or accredited representative. Specifically, this final rule explains how USCIS will issue requests, notices, cards, and original documents to applicants, petitioners, and their attorneys or accredited representatives of record.

Further, through this final rule, DHS clarifies USCIS notification practices relating to represented parties.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-25419
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2005-14-07 for certain The Boeing Company Model 727, 727C, 727-100, 727-100C, 727-200, and 727-200F series airplanes. AD 2005-14-07 required repetitive inspections of the carriage attach fittings on the inboard and outboard foreflaps of each wing for cracking and other discrepancies, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD requires reducing certain repetitive inspection intervals for the inboard and outboard carriage attach fittings for the outboard foreflaps, requires previously optional terminating actions which install improved outboard foreflap carriage attach fittings, and adds new initial and repetitive inspections of those fittings and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by a report of broken inboard and outboard carriage attach fittings of the outboard foreflaps found during an inspection. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the attach fittings of the foreflap carriage of the wings, which could result in partial or complete loss of the foreflap and consequent loss of controllability of the airplane.
Amendments to the 2013 Integrated Mortgage Disclosures Rule Under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (Regulation X) and Truth In Lending Act (Regulation Z) and the 2013 Loan Originator Rule Under the Truth in Lending Act (Regulation Z)
Document Number: 2014-24739
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-29
Agency: Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection
The Bureau is proposing two modifications to the Truth in Lending Act and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act Final Rule (TILA- RESPA Final Rule): An adjustment to the timing requirement for revised disclosures when the consumer locks a rate or extends a rate lock after the initial disclosures are provided; and an amendment to permit language related to new construction loans to be included on the Loan Estimate form. The Bureau also is proposing to amend the 2013 Loan Originator Final Rule to provide for placement of the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry ID (NMLSR ID) on the integrated disclosures. Additionally, the Bureau is proposing technical corrections, including citation and cross-reference updates, and wording changes for clarification purposes to various provisions of Regulations X and Z as amended or adopted by the TILA-RESPA Final Rule.
Airworthiness Directives; Honeywell International Inc. Air Data Pressure Transducers
Document Number: 2014-24558
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2012-26-15, which applied to certain Honeywell International Inc. air data pressure transducers as installed on various aircraft. AD 2012-26-15 required doing various tests or checks of equipment having certain air data pressure transducers, removing equipment if necessary, and reporting the results of the tests or checks. As an option to the tests or checks, AD 2012-26-15 allowed removal of affected equipment having certain air data pressure transducers. We issued AD 2012-26-15 to detect and correct inaccuracies of the pressure sensors, which could result in altitude, computed airspeed, true airspeed, and Mach computation errors. AD 2012-26-15 reported that these errors could reduce the ability of the flightcrew to maintain the safe flight of the aircraft and could result in consequent loss of control of the aircraft. Since we issued AD 2012-26-15, we have received new data indicating that the safety risk is lower than originally estimated.
