VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:20 Feb 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 On May 20, 2015 (80 FR 28807), the Agency implemented this priority through the establishment of a new regulation, which is found in 7 CFR part 1980, subpart K of the Code of Federal Regulations. The new regulation applies to the following specific programs, which are referred to as the ‘‘underlying programs,’’ within Rural Development: • Community Facility Loans • Fire and Rescue and Other Small Community Facilities Projects • Community Facilities Grant Program • Community Programs Guaranteed Loans • Water and Waste Disposal Programs Guaranteed Loans • Water and Waste Loans and Grants • Business and Industry Guaranteed Loanmaking and Servicing • Rural Business Development Grants When the Agency published the new regulation, we overlooked inserting cross-references to the new regulation in the regulations for the underlying programs.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 900EX and FALCON 2000EX airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of significant fuel leakage at the middle position of the left outboard slat. This AD would require modifying the assembly of the slat extension mechanical stop. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the assembly of the slat extension mechanical stop, which if not corrected, could lead to a significant fuel leak and result in an uncontained fire. DATES: This AD becomes effective April 5, 2016. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of April 5, 2016.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: Rural Development (RD) is correcting an oversight of omitting 
cross-reference to the Strategic Economic and Community Development 
priority in the underlying programs when it published the rule for the 
priority.

DATES: This rule is effective March 1, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 6025 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 
(2014 Farm Bill) provides the Secretary of Agriculture the authority to 
give priority to projects that support strategic economic development 
or community development plans. Section 6025 enables the Secretary to 
reserve up to 10 percent of program funds from certain Rural 
Development programs, as identified in the section.
    On May 20, 2015 (80 FR 28807), the Agency implemented this priority 
through the establishment of a new regulation, which is found in 7 CFR 
part 1980, subpart K of the Code of Federal Regulations. The new 
regulation applies to the following specific programs, which are 
referred to as the ``underlying programs,'' within Rural Development:

 Community Facility Loans
 Fire and Rescue and Other Small Community Facilities Projects
 Community Facilities Grant Program
 Community Programs Guaranteed Loans
 Water and Waste Disposal Programs Guaranteed Loans
 Water and Waste Loans and Grants
 Business and Industry Guaranteed Loanmaking and Servicing
 Rural Business Development Grants

    When the Agency published the new regulation, we overlooked 
inserting cross-references to the new regulation in the regulations for 
the underlying programs. This action corrects that oversight. 
Specifically, the Agency is adding to each of the underlying programs' 
regulations language that alerts potential applicants to the new 
strategic and economic development regulation, which is found in 7 CFR 
part 1980, subpart K of chapter XVIII of the Code of Federal 
Regulations.
