Proposed Collection: iWin: Navigating your Path to Well-Being, 0925-NEW, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: The overarching objective of this proposal is to conduct a randomized trial to evaluate the effectiveness of the Individual Well- Being Navigator (iWin) mobile application, a substance abuse prevention and well-being enhancement program designed specifically for military personnel. This mobile application provides an innovative, tailored mobile application using best practices in behavior change science and innovative technology to assist military personnel in preventing substance abuse and enhancing well-being by providing them with the most appropriate intervention content at the right time. It integrates Trans-theoretical Model of Behavior Change based tailoring, SMS messaging, stage of change matched activities, and engaging game-like features in a cutting edge multiple behavior change program. The first year of this project will focus on the completion of development and beta testing of the app. In year 2, the efficacy of the iWin program will be determined by tests of statistical significance indicating that participants in the Treatment condition had lower scores on an index of substance use and other behavioral risks than the control group at 6 and 9 month follow-up. The overall design is a 2 group (treatment and control group) by 3 Occasions with repeated measures across occasions. Once shown to be effective, the iWin program will assist organizations that serve military personnel to meet the directives of both the Department of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff indicating that prevention programs be evidence based, evaluated by the specified populations and address full Total Force Fitness paradigm rather than a single behavior. OMB approval is requested for 1 year. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1,557.

Financial Assistance and Social Services Programs; Burial Assistance
Document Number: 2016-04335
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs
Current regulations allow for burial assistance for eligible indigent Indians but require submission of the application within 30 days of the Indian's death. This rule would extend the deadline for filing an application to 180 days to address hardships resulting from the current short timeframe.
Title Evidence for Trust Land Acquisitions
Document Number: 2016-04332
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs
This rule deletes the requirement for fee-to-trust applicants to furnish title evidence that meets the ``Standards for the Preparation of Title Evidence in Land Acquisitions by the United States'' issued by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and replaces the requirement with a more targeted requirement for title evidence, because adherence to the DOJ standards is not required for acquisitions of land in trust for individual Indians or Indian tribes.
Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Programs; Program Integrity Enhancements to the Provider Enrollment Process
Document Number: 2016-04312
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services
This proposed rule would implement sections of the Affordable Care Act that require Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) providers and suppliers to disclose certain current and previous affiliations with other providers and suppliers. This proposed rule would also provide CMS with additional authority to deny or revoke a provider's or supplier's Medicare enrollment. In addition, this proposed rule would require that to order, certify, refer or prescribe any Part A or B service, item or drug, a physician or, when permitted, an eligible professional must be enrolled in Medicare in an approved status or have validly opted-out of the Medicare program.
Civil Penalty Factors
Document Number: 2016-04311
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This final rule provides NHTSA's interpretation of the civil penalty factors for determining the amount of a civil penalty or the amount of a compromise under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act (Safety Act). The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) states that the Secretary of Transportation shall determine the amount of civil penalty or compromise under the Safety Act. MAP-21 identifies mandatory factors that the Secretary must consider and discretionary factors for the Secretary to consider as appropriate in making such determinations. MAP-21 directs NHTSA to issue a rule providing an interpretation of these penalty factors. This final rule also amends NHTSA's regulation to the increase penalties and damages for odometer fraud, and to include the statutory penalty for knowingly and willfully submitting materially false or misleading information to the Secretary after certifying the same information as accurate. In the NPRM, we proposed administrative procedures for NHTSA to follow when assessing civil penalties against persons who violate the Safety Act. We are not including those procedures in this final rule. Instead, NHTSA plans to address those procedures separately, in a rule to be issued soon.
Underlying Programs Cross-References to the Strategic Economic and Community Development; Technical Amendments
Document Number: 2016-04309

Document Number: 2016-04306
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
The purpose of this rule is to establish policy, assign responsibilities, and promulgate procedures for informing current and former uniformed Service members of the Department of Defense (DoD) and individuals who apply for uniformed service with DoD of their rights, benefits, and obligations under USERRA and its implementing regulations. This rule does not apply to Service members who have served or applied to serve with the National Disaster Medical Response System or with the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service. Additionally, the rule establishes procedures for DOD components' responsibilities related to fulfilling their USERRA obligations.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-04296
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-200, -200 Freighter, and -300 series airplanes; and all Airbus Model A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of chafing of the feeder cable at the pylon-wing junction due to vibration; one report revealed that the cable loom plastic support bracket of the G-route was broken due to vibration; and another report revealed wire chafing due to clamp damage. This proposed AD would require modifying the cable loom support bracket of the G-route of the inboard pylons at the pylon- wing junction. We are proposing this AD to prevent chafing of the wiring in the pylon-wing area, which could result in an electrical short circuit near a flammable fluid vapor zone, and consequent fire or fuel tank explosion.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-04295
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of improperly drilled bores, located on upper and lower stiffener joints to the web at a certain frame. This proposed AD would require a one-time inspection of the bores, and repair if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct an unsatisfactory bore that can adversely affect the structural integrity of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-04292
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-400, 747-400D, and 747-400F series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that a certain fastener type in the fuel tank walls has insufficient bond to the structure, and an electrical wiring short could cause arcing to occur at the ends of fasteners in the fuel tanks. This proposed AD would require the installation of new clamps and polytetrafluoroethylene (TFE) sleeves on the wire bundles of the front spars and rear spars of the wings. This proposed AD would also require inspecting the existing TFE sleeves under the wire bundle clamps for correct installation, and replacement if necessary. We are proposing this AD to prevent potential ignition sources in the fuel tank in the event of a lightning strike or high-powered short circuit, and consequent fire or explosion.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-04290
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-10- 03, for all Airbus Model A330-200, -200 Freighter, and -300 series airplanes; and Model A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. AD 2013-10-03 currently requires one-time inspections for deformation and damage of the bogie beams of the main landing gear (MLG); repetitive inspections for damage and corrosion of the sliding piston sub-assembly on certain airplanes; and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued AD 2013-10-03, we have determined that certain one-time inspections are no longer necessary, certain compliance times may be extended, and an optional terminating action should be provided. This proposed AD would remove Model A340- 500, and -600 series airplanes from the applicability, remove certain one-time inspections of the MLG bogie beams and the sliding piston sub- assembly; revise certain compliance times and provide, for certain airplanes, an optional terminating action for the repetitive actions. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct damage or corrosion under the bogie stop pad of both MLG bogie beams, which could result in a damaged bogie beam and consequent detachment of the beam from the airplane, or collapse of the MLG and departure of the airplane from the runway.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-04288
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-200 Freighter series airplanes; Model A330- 200 and A330-300 series airplanes; Model A340-200 and A340-300 series airplanes; Model A340-500 series airplanes; and Model A340-600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report indicating that, during an operational test of a ram air turbine (RAT), the RAT did not deploy in automatic mode. This proposed AD would require identification of the manufacturer, part number, and serial number of the RAT, and re- identifying and modifying the RAT if necessary. We are proposing this AD to prevent non-deployment of the RAT, which, if preceded by a total engine flame-out, or during a total loss of normal electrical power generation, could result in reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2016-04284
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 1D and 1D1 turboshaft engines with a pre- modification (mod) TU357 gas generator module (M03), installed. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of divergent rubbing between the piston shaft small diameter labyrinth and the rear bearing support. This proposed AD would require removing the pre-modification (mod) TU357 gas generator module (M03) and replacing with a part eligible for installation. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the labyrinth seal and engine, in-flight shutdown, and loss of control of the helicopter.

VA is authorized to carry out this program until December 31, 2016. These regulations provide guidelines for veterans and the public regarding this program, hereafter referred to as the Veterans Transportation Service (VTS).

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) seeks comments on the scope and content of the voluntary Personal Health Record Model Privacy Notice (MPN) developed by ONC and published in 2011. In response to stakeholder requests for an electronic means to inform consumers about how health technology products store, use, and share health information (especially products of health technology developers not covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Pub. L. 104-191), we have initiated a process to update the MPN to better align with the current consumer health technology landscape.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Ogden-Hinckley, UT
Document Number: 2016-04201
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify the Class E airspace extending upward from the surface designated as an extension to the Class D surface area at Ogden-Hinckley Airport, Ogden, UT. The FAA's Aeronautical Information Services identified that the width of the Class E extension to the Class D surface area did not meet the current criteria. This action would enhance the safety and management of Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-04035
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008-26-07 for all The Boeing Company Model DC-8-11, DC-8-12, DC-8-21, DC-8-31, DC-8- 32, DC-8-33, DC-8-41, DC-8-42, and DC-8-43 airplanes; Model DC-8-50 series airplanes; Model 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. AD 2008-26-07 required repetitive inspections of the lower skin and stringers at certain stations, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD continues to require the actions specified in AD 2008-26-07 and also requires an eddy current high frequency (ETHF) inspection for cracks of the fastener open holes common to the lower skins, stringers, and splice fittings at a certain station; installation of external doublers and fasteners and repetitive eddy current low frequency (ETLF) inspections around the fasteners for any crack; and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by certain mandated programs intended to support the airplane reaching its limit of validity of the engineering data that support the established structural maintenance program. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the lower skins, stringers, and fastener holes of the splice fittings, which could result in the loss of structural integrity of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-04033
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes, Model 757 airplanes, Model 767 airplanes, and Model 777 airplanes. This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This AD requires an inspection to determine if certain motor-operated valve (MOV) actuators for the fuel valves are installed, and replacement of any affected actuators. Previous ADs addressed this Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 (SFAR 88) issue for the majority of the airplanes delivered with these actuators. Since those ADs did not cover all of the airplanes, and for some airplanes delivered with improved actuators, there was no restriction on installation of replacement actuators with the unsafe condition, this additional rulemaking action is required. As with the related ADs, we are issuing this AD to prevent electrical energy from lightning, hot shorts, or fault current from entering the fuel tank through the fuel valve actuator shaft, which could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-03884
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-100, -200B, -200C, -200F, -300, -400, - 400D, and -400F series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of significant fuselage skin damage at certain parts of the dorsal fairing, due to wear from the dorsal fairing. This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections for wear and cracks of the fuselage skin under the dorsal fairing, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also requires repetitive post-repair external surface high frequency eddy current inspections of the blended areas of the skin and detailed inspections of the unrepaired areas, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fuselage skin damage of the dorsal fairing area, which could result in skin cracking and consequent depressurization of the airplane.
