SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Personnel Management is withdrawing the proposed rule published October 15, 2014 entitled, ‘‘Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance Program: Providing Option C Coverage for Children of Same-Sex Domestic Partners’’ (79 FR 61788– 61790). The proposed regulation would have allowed children of same-sex domestic partners living in states that do not allow same-sex couples to marry to be covered as family members under an eligible individual’s FEGLI Option C enrollment. On June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that the Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State. As a result, all states are required to allow same-sex couples to marry, meaning no additional children would be eligible for coverage based on the proposed rule. For this reason, the Office of Personnel Management withdraws the proposed rule to amend the FEGLI regulation to allow children of same-sex domestic partners living in states that do not allow same-sex couples to marry to be covered as family members under an eligible individual’s FEGLI Option C enrollment.

AGENCY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. (PWC) PT6A–60AG, –65AG, –67AF, and –67AG turboprop engines. This proposed AD was prompted by incidents of corrosion and perforation of the two-ply Cu-Be bellows in Woodward fuel control units (FCUs). This proposed AD would require removing the Woodward FCU and installing an FCU that is eligible for installation. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the Woodward FCU, which could lead to failure of the engine, in-flight shutdown, and loss of control of the airplane. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by January 11, 2016.

Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance Program: Providing Option 
C Coverage for Children of Same-Sex Domestic Partners; Withdrawal

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking; withdrawal.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) hereby 
withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend the Federal 
Employees' Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) regulations to allow children 
of same-sex domestic partners living in states that do not allow same-
sex couples to marry to be covered as family members under an eligible 
individual's FEGLI Option C enrollment.

DATES: The proposed rule, published on October 15, 2014, in the Federal 
Register (79 FR 61788 -61790), is withdrawn as of November 10, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ronald Brown, Policy Analyst, (202) 
606-0004, or by email to Ronald.Brown@opm.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Personnel Management is 
withdrawing the proposed rule published October 15, 2014 entitled, 
``Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance Program: Providing Option C 
Coverage for Children of Same-Sex Domestic Partners'' (79 FR 61788-
61790). The proposed regulation would have allowed children of same-sex 
domestic partners living in states that do not allow same-sex couples 
to marry to be covered as family members under an eligible individual's 
FEGLI Option C enrollment. On June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme 
Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that the Fourteenth Amendment 
requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same 
sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when 
their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State. As a 
result, all states are required to allow same-sex couples to marry, 
meaning no additional children would be eligible for coverage based on 
the proposed rule. For this reason, the Office of Personnel Management 
withdraws the proposed rule to amend the FEGLI regulation to allow 
children of same-sex domestic partners living in states that do not 
allow same-sex couples to marry to be covered as family members under 
an eligible individual's FEGLI Option C enrollment.
