Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to determine whether newly identified measures to mitigate potential impacts caused by the proposed SunZia Southwest Transmission Line Project to military operations and readiness activities require the BLM to prepare a supplement to the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which the BLM published in June 2013. The mitigation proposed by the Department of Defense (DOD) would involve the burial of three segments that total approximately 5 miles of the SunZia Southwest Transmission Line Project within the area identified as the ``call up area'' north of the White Sands Missile Range along and within the preferred alternative corridor analyzed in the Final EIS.

Changes in Nautical Chart Catalog Format
Document Number: 2014-28091
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-11-28
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
The Office of Coast Survey is transitioning its nautical products to a wide range of digital formats and web mapping services to enable more frequent updating and allow easier uptake by users. With the end of lithographic printing of NOAA paper nautical charts in April 2014, we also stopped production of the five printed nautical chart catalogs which are created in the large paper format (35 inches by 55 inches). We have now transformed the chart catalogs into letter-sized documents that users can print at home. Downloads of the ``print-at- home'' chart catalog in PDF format are free from the Coast Survey Web site. An interactive chart catalog is also available on the Coast Survey Web site (nauticalcharts.noaa.gov) for users who prefer to point, click, and download their charts from online. Coast Survey will consider making the front page of the large- format chart catalog. (We consider the reverse side, which lists chart agents, as obsolete and will not continue it.) Before making the decision, Coast Survey wants to know if demand remains for the large- format chart catalogs, and if users are willing to purchase these from commercial providers, such as NOAA-certified printing companies. Coast Survey invites written comments about: (1) Maintaining the large-format paper catalog (with no reverse side) if they are available for purchase from commercial provider; (2) the new free ``print-at- home'' PDF chart catalog; and (3) the online interactive chart catalog on the homepage of the nauticalcharts.noaa.gov Web site.

Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; C.R. England, Inc.
Document Number: 2014-28072
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-11-28
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that C.R. England, Inc. (C.R. England) has applied for an exemption from the Federal minimum training conditions in 49 CFR 383.25(a)(1) that require a commercial learner's permit (CLP) holder to always be accompanied by a commercial driver's license (CDL) holder with the proper CDL class and endorsements seated in the front seat of the vehicle while the CLP holder performs behind-the-wheel training on public roads or highways. C.R. England requests an exemption to allow CLP holders who have passed the CDL skills test but not yet received the CDL document to drive a commercial motor vehicle without being accompanied by a CDL holder, provided the driver has documentation of passing the skills test. C.R. England believes that the exemption, if granted, would allow such a driver to operate more freely and in a way that benefits the driver, the carrier, and the economy as a whole.
Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders
Document Number: 2014-28071
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-11-28
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to grant requests from five individuals for exemptions from the regulatory requirement that interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers have ``no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition which is likely to cause loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to control a CMV.'' The regulation and the associated advisory criteria published in the Code of Federal Regulations as the ``Instructions for Performing and Recording Physical Examinations'' have resulted in numerous drivers being prohibited from operating CMVs in interstate commerce based on the fact that they have had one or more seizures and are taking anti-seizure medication, rather than an individual analysis of their circumstances by a qualified medical examiner. The Agency concluded that granting exemptions for these CMV drivers will provide a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety maintained without the exemptions. FMCSA grants exemptions that will allow these five individuals to operate CMVs in interstate commerce for a 2-year period. The exemptions preempt State laws and regulations and may be renewed.

Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to exempt 13 individuals from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). They are unable to meet the vision requirement in one eye for various reasons. The exemptions will enable these individuals to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce without meeting the prescribed vision requirement in one eye. The Agency has concluded that granting these exemptions will provide a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety maintained without the exemptions for these CMV drivers.

Used Motor Vehicle Trade Regulation Rule
Document Number: 2014-28000
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-11-28
Agency: Federal Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The FTC is proposing further amendments to the Used Motor Vehicle Trade Regulation Rule (``Rule'' or ``Used Car Rule'') that would require dealers to indicate on the Buyers Guide whether they obtained a vehicle history report, and, if so, to provide a copy of the report to consumers who request it; revise the Buyers Guide statement describing the meaning of an ``As Is'' sale in which a dealer offers a vehicle for sale without a warranty; and move boxes to the front of the Buyers Guide for dealers to indicate whether non-dealer warranties apply to a vehicle. Based on the FTC's review of the public comments, the Commission proposes these amendments to promote consumer access to vehicle history information, to clarify the meaning of ``As Is'' in the sale of used vehicles without warranties, and to make disclosures concerning non-dealer warranties more prominent. The FTC is not adopting any final amendments to the Used Car Rule at this time. It continues to consider comments submitted in response to its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (``NPRM'') published in December 2012 and seeks additional comments in this SNPRM.
Airworthiness Directives; Agusta S.p.A. Helicopters
Document Number: 2014-27995
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-07-51 for AgustaWestland S.p.A. Model AB139 and AW139 helicopters with certain main rotor (M/R) rotating scissors installed. AD 2014-07-51 required repetitively inspecting the M/R rotating scissors for play of the lower half scissor spherical bearing (bearing) and removing the bearing if there was play beyond allowable limits. AD 2014-07-51 also required removing all affected bearings. AD 2014-07-51 was prompted by reports of certain bearings dislodging from certain M/R rotating scissors. This new AD retains the requirements of AD 2014-07-51, expands the applicability, and requires installing a special nut. These actions are intended to detect excessive play of the bearing and prevent failure of the M/R rotating scissors and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Requirements for MODUs and Other Vessels Conducting Outer Continental Shelf Activities With Dynamic Positioning Systems
Document Number: 2014-27594
Type: Proposed Rule

Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish minimum design, operation, training, and manning standards for mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs) and other vessels using dynamic positioning systems to engage in Outer Continental Shelf activities. Establishing these minimum standards is necessary to improve the safety of people and property involved in such operations, and the protection of the environment in which they operate. This notice of proposed rulemaking would decrease the risk of a loss of position by a dynamically- positioned MODU or other vessel that could result in a fire, explosion, or subsea spill, and supports the Coast Guard's strategic goals of maritime safety and protection of natural resources.

Exempting Mental Health Peer Support Services From Copayments
Document Number: 2014-27231
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-11-28
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is taking final action to amend its regulation that sets forth the VA services that are not subject to copayment requirements for inpatient hospital care or outpatient medical care. Specifically, the regulation is amended to exempt mental health peer support services from having any required copayment. This removes a barrier that may have previously discouraged veterans from choosing to use mental health peer support services as a viable care option. VA believes that mental health peer support services are a valuable resource for veterans with mental health conditions and wants to ensure that veterans take full advantage of all resources available to them.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-26439
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model DC-8-55, DC-8F-54, and DC-8F-55 airplanes, Model DC-8-60 series airplanes, Model DC-8-60F series airplanes, Model DC-8-70 series airplanes, and Model DC-8-70F series airplanes. This AD was prompted by multiple reports of cracking of the upper aft skin panel of the fuselage. An evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) indicates that the upper aft skin panel of the fuselage is subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). This AD requires removing any previously installed local repairs; installing a full-length improvement modification with or without finger doublers, or a full- length repair with or without finger doublers, as applicable; and doing repetitive inspections for cracking of the doublers, and repair if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the upper aft skin panel of the fuselage, which could result in loss of structural integrity and consequent rapid decompression of the airplane.
