Utility Allowances Submetering
Document Number: 2016-04606
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-03
Agency: Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This document contains final and temporary regulations that amend the utility allowance regulations concerning the low-income housing credit. The final regulations clarify the circumstances in which utility costs paid by a tenant based on actual consumption in a submetered rent-restricted unit are treated as paid by the tenant directly to the utility company. The temporary regulations extend the principles of these submetering rules to situations in which a building owner sells to tenants energy that is produced from a renewable source and that is not delivered by a local utility company. The final and temporary regulations affect owners of low-income housing projects that claim the credit, the tenants in those low-income housing projects, and State and local housing credit agencies. The text of these temporary regulations also serves as the text of the proposed regulations (REG- 123867-14) set forth in the notice of proposed rulemaking on this subject in the Proposed Rules section of this issue of the Federal Register.

General and Plastic Surgery Devices; Reclassification of Blood Lancets
Document Number: 2016-04578
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-03
Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or the Agency) is proposing to reclassify the following three types of blood lancets used to puncture skin to obtain a drop of blood for diagnostic purposes from class I (general controls) exempt from premarket notification into class II (special controls) and subject to premarket review: Single use only blood lancets with an integral sharps injury prevention feature, single use only blood lancets without an integral sharps injury prevention feature, and multiple use blood lancets for single patient use only. FDA is identifying proposed special controls for these types of blood lancets that we believe are necessary to provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness. FDA is also proposing to reclassify multiple use blood lancets for multiple patient use from class I (general controls) exempt from premarket notification into class III (premarket approval). FDA is proposing the reclassification of these four types of blood lancets on its own initiative based on new information.

Airworthiness Directives; BLANIK LIMITED Gliders
Document Number: 2016-04541
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for BLANIK LIMITED Models L-13 Blanik and L-13 AC Blanik gliders (type certificate previously held by LET Aeronautical Works) that would supersede AD 2000-20-11. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as insufficient material strength of the tail-fuselage attachment fitting. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also would amend existing Class D and Class E airspace by recognizing the airport's name change. This action also would change the existing Class D airspace designation at Duke Field, Eglin Air Force Base (AFB), FL, and would adjust the geographic coordinates of Eglin AFB, Destin Executive Airport, Duke Field, and Hurlburt Field, to stay in concert with the FAA's database.
