Extension of the Designation of Sierra Leone for Temporary Protected Status
Document Number: 2016-06330
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-03-22
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
Through this Notice, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announces that the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) is extending the designation of Sierra Leone for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 6 months, from May 22, 2016, through November 21, 2016. The extension allows currently eligible TPS beneficiaries to retain TPS through November 21, 2016, so long as they otherwise continue to meet the eligibility requirements for TPS. The Secretary has determined that an extension is warranted because, although there have been significant improvements, conditions in Sierra Leone supporting its November 2014 designation for TPS continue to be met. Through this Notice, DHS also sets forth procedures necessary for eligible nationals of Sierra Leone (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sierra Leone) to re-register for TPS and to apply for renewal of their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Re-registration is limited to persons who have previously registered for TPS under the designation of Sierra Leone and whose applications have been granted. Certain nationals of Sierra Leone (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Sierra Leone) who have not previously applied for TPS may be eligible to apply under the late initial registration provisions if they meet (1) at least one of the late initial filing criteria, and (2) all TPS eligibility criteria (including continuous residence in the United States since November 20, 2014, and continuous physical presence in the United States since November 21, 2014). For individuals who have already been granted TPS under Sierra Leone's designation, the 60-day re-registration period runs from March 22, 2016 through May 23, 2016. USCIS will issue new EADs with a November 21, 2016, expiration date to eligible Sierra Leone TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for EADs under this extension. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re- registration applications, DHS recognizes that not all re-registrants will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on May 21, 2016. Accordingly, through this Notice, DHS automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Sierra Leone for 6 months, through November 21, 2016, and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended and their impact on the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and E-Verify processes.

Customs and Border Protection's Bond Program; Correction
Document Number: 2016-06323
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-22
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register of November 13, 2015, a final rule amending CBP's bond regulations. In that rule, CBP amended the regulation prescribing bond and rider filing requirements and stated, in the preamble, that the agency's intent was to provide additional time for the filing of these documents prior to their effective date. Due to a drafting error, one of the provisions inadvertently provides for a more restrictive time frame for filing a continuous bond, associated application, or rider prior to their effective date. This document corrects that provision to conform it to CBP's stated intent to liberalize the bond and rider filing process.
Public Notice For Waiver for Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance at Big Spring McMahon-Wrinkle Airport, Big Spring, TX
Document Number: 2016-06322
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-03-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to nonaeronautical use and to authorize the conversion of the airport property. The proposal consists of one parcel of land containing a total of approximately 120.4 acres and one parcel of land containing a total of approximately 86.0 acres. Ownership of the associated property transferred Webb Air Force Base to the City of Big Spring via an ``Indenture'' between the United States of America and the City of Big Spring, Texas on October 6, 1978. The land comprising this parcel is outside the forecasted need for aviation development and, thus, is no longer needed for indirect or direct aeronautical use. The airport wishes to develop this land for compatible commercial, nonaeronautical use. The income from the conversion of this parcel will benefit the aviation community by reinvestment in the airport. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the conversion of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the conversion of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with Section 47107(h) of Title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

Unlicensed White Space Devices
Document Number: 2016-05764
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-22
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) proposes to amend its rules to improve the quality of the geographic location and other data submitted for fixed white space devices operating on unused frequencies in the TV Bands and, in the future, the 600 MHz Band for wireless services. The proposed rules would eliminate the professional installer option for fixed white space devices and require that each fixed white space device incorporate a geo-location capability to determine its location, and would provide options to accommodate fixed white space device installations in locations where an internal geo-location capability is not able to provide this information. These proposals will improve the accuracy and reliability of the fixed white space device data recorded in the white space databases and assure that the potential to cause interference to protected services is minimized.
