Registration and Financial Security Requirements for Brokers of Property and Freight Forwarders; Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents' Exemption Application
FMCSA denies an application from the Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents (AIPBA) for an exemption for all property brokers and freight forwarders from the $75,000 bond provision included in section 32918 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), now codified in 49 U.S.C. 13906. AIPBA filed its request pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 13541 on August 14, 2013. On December 26, 2013, FMCSA published a notice in the Federal Register requesting comments from all interested parties on AIPBA's exemption application. After reviewing the public comments, the Agency has concluded that the exemption should be denied on the basis that 49 U.S.C.13541 does not give FMCSA the authority to essentially nullify a statutory provision by exempting the entire class of persons subject to the provision. Furthermore, even if the Agency had the authority to issue such a blanket exemption, AIPBA's exemption application does not meet the factors provided in section 13541 because (1) the new $75,000 bond requirement is necessary to carry out the National Transportation Policy at 49 U.S.C.13101, (2) there has been no showing that the $75,000 requirement ``is not needed to protect shippers from the abuse of market power'' and (3) the requested exemption is not in the public interest.

Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC); Nominations
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requests applications of individuals to be considered for selection as members of the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC). Nominations should describe and document the proposed member's qualification for ETAAC membership, including the applicant's knowledge of regulations and the applicant's past or current affiliations and dealings with the particular tax segment or segments of the community that the applicant wishes to represent on the council. Applications will be accepted for current vacancies from qualified individuals and from professional and public interest groups that wish to have representation on ETAAC. Submittal of an application and resume is required. The ETAAC provides an organized public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues in support of the overriding goal that paperless filing should be the preferred and most convenient method of filing tax and information returns. ETAAC members convey the public's perception of IRS electronic tax administration activities, offer constructive observations about current or proposed policies, programs, and procedures, and suggest improvements. The IRS seeks a diverse group of individuals to represent various groups including: (1) Tax practitioners and preparers, (2) tax software developers, (3) large and small business, (4) employers and payroll service providers, (5) individual taxpayers, (6) financial industry (payers, payment options and best practices), (7) system integrators or technology providers, (8) digital or online service providers, (9) academic (marketing, sales or technical perspectives), (10) trusts and estates, (11) tax exempt organizations, and (12) state and local governments. This is a volunteer position and members will serve a three-year term on the ETAAC to allow for a rotation in membership which ensures that different perspectives are represented. Travel expenses within government guidelines will be reimbursed. Potential candidates must pass an IRS tax compliance check and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) background investigation.

Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders
FMCSA announces its decision to grant requests from 3 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 3 individuals to operate CMVs in interstate commerce for a 2-year period. The exemptions preempt State laws and regulations and may be renewed.
Record of Decision To Adopt U.S. Air Force Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Powder River Training Complex
In accordance with Section 102 of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (``NEPA''), the Council on Environmental Quality's (``CEQ'') regulations implementing NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), and other applicable authorities, including FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 518h, and FAA Order JO 7400.2K, ``Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters,'' paragraph 32-2-3, the FAA has conducted an independent review and evaluation of the Air Force's Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the proposed expansion of airspace for the Powder River Training Complex (PRTC), dated November 28, 2014.

Based on its independent review and evaluation, the FAA has determined the FEIS, including its supporting documentation, as incorporated by reference, adequately assesses and discloses the environmental impacts of the proposed expansion of airspace for PRTC, and that adoption of the FEIS by the FAA is authorized under 40 CFR 1506.3, Adoption. Accordingly, the FAA adopts the FEIS, and takes full responsibility for the scope and content that addresses the proposed expansion of airspace for PRTC.

Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Model GVI airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of corrosion on in-service air non-return valves. This proposed AD would require a revision to the Emergency Procedures section of the airplane flight manual (AFM). This proposed AD would also require a revision to the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate airworthiness limitations for the high pressure (HP) Stage 5 air non-return valves. We are proposing this AD to ensure the flightcrew is provided with procedures to mitigate the risks associated with failure of the HP Stage 5 air non- return valve. Failure of the HP Stage 5 air non-return valve in the open position could result in engine instability and uncommanded in- flight shutdown.
