The Administration for Children and Families published a document in the Federal Register on March 8, 2016, requesting comments on a National toll-free hotline and Web site for child care. The document contained an incorrect email address for responses. Because the email address was incorrect, the Administration for Children and Families is extending the deadline for submission of comments as well.
1,2-Propanediol, 3-[3-[1, 3, 3, 3-tetramethyl-1-[(trimethylsilyl)oxy]-1-disiloxanyl] propoxy]-; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance
Document Number: 2016-08282
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of 1,2-propanediol, 3-[3-[1, 3, 3, 3- tetramethyl-1-[(trimethylsilyl)oxy]-1-disiloxyanyl] propoxy]- (CAS Reg. No. 70280-68-1) when used as an inert ingredient (antifoaming agent) in pesticide formulations applied to growing crops at a maximum concentration not to exceed 5% by weight. Exponent, on behalf of ISK Biosciences submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting establishment of an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of 1,2-propanediol, 3-[3-[1, 3, 3, 3-tetramethyl-1-[(trimethylsilyl)oxy]-1-disiloxyanyl] propoxy]-.
Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Colorado; Revisions to Common Provisions and Regulation Number 3; Corrections
Document Number: 2016-08274
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published in the January 25, 2016 Federal Register a document concerning the approval of Air Quality State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions to Colorado Common Provisions and Regulation Number 3. Inadvertently, the publication date of January 25, 2016 was listed in the regulatory text under the heading ``EPA Effective Date'' instead of the effective date of February 24, 2016. The correct EPA effective date was provided in the rule preamble. This document corrects the ``EPA Effective Date'' within the regulatory text to February 24, 2016.
Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Spokane, Washington: Second 10-Year PM10
Document Number: 2016-08272
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving the limited maintenance plan submitted on January 4, 2016, by the State of Washington for the Spokane area, which includes the cities of Spokane, Spokane Valley, Millwood and surrounding unincorporated areas in Spokane County, Washington. This plan addresses the second 10-year maintenance period for particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to a nominal 10 micrometers (PM10). A limited maintenance plan is used to meet Clean Air Act requirements for formerly designated nonattainment areas that meet certain qualification criteria. The EPA determined that Washington's submittal meets the limited maintenance plan criteria. The Spokane area currently has monitored PM10 levels well below the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) and levels have not increased since the area was redesignated to attainment in 2005. The EPA is also approving minor updates to the Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency (SRCAA) regulations controlling PM10 related to the maintenance plan.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-08270
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a design review, which found that the burst pressure of the flexible hose used to vent oxygen from the high- pressure relief valve of the oxygen cylinder overboard is lower than the opening pressure of the high-pressure relief valve. This pressure difference could cause the flexible hose to burst before it is able to vent excess oxygen overboard. This proposed AD would require replacement of flexible relief hoses for the crew oxygen bottles with new metal design relief hoses. We are proposing this AD to prevent the accumulation of excess oxygen in an enclosed space, which could, if near a source of ignition, cause an uncontrolled oxygen-fed fire.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-08266
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-102, -103, and -106 airplanes, and Model DHC-8-200 and -300 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of heat damage found on a nacelle firewall after an unsuccessful engine ground start and several events of heat damage found on direct current starter/generator terminal block assemblies. This proposed AD would require an inspection for damage on the nacelle firewalls and the terminal block assemblies and to make sure the insulating sleeves are installed and have no damage, and corrective action if necessary. We are proposing this AD to prevent arcing between the firewall and terminal blocks that are missing insulating sleeves on the conductive bushings, which could, in combination with a fuel or hydraulic fluid leak, be an ignition source for a fire.

Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Limited Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-08261
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pacific Aerospace Limited Model 750XL (type certificate previously held by Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd.) airplanes that would supersede AD 2006-13-05. 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 some critical rivets on the wing not being fully age- hardened and being installed in specific locations where reduction in rivet strength reduces wing strength. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Textron Aviation Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-08259
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008-15- 06, which applies to certain Textron Aviation Inc. Models 175 and 175A airplanes (type certificate previously held by Cessna Aircraft Company). AD 2008-15-06 currently requires checking the airplane logbook to determine if the original engine mounting brackets have been replaced. If the original engine mounting brackets are still installed, the AD requires repetitively inspecting those brackets for cracks and replacing any cracked engine mounting bracket until all four original engine mounting brackets are replaced. Replacing all four original engine mounting brackets terminates the actions required in AD 2008-15- 06. Since we issued AD 2008-15-06, we have determined that the applicability needs to be changed to add a serial number and take one out. This proposed AD would retain the actions required in AD 2008-15- 06 and would change the Applicability section. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-08255
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
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 Model A340-200 and -300 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of spurious terrain awareness warning system (TAWS) alerts during approach and takeoff for airplanes fitted with the terrain and traffic collision avoidance system with transponder (T3CAS) when the T3CAS is constantly powered ``ON'' for more than 149 hours. This proposed AD would require repetitive on-ground power cycle of the T3CAS. We are proposing this AD to prevent spurious TAWS alerts (Collision Prediction and Alerting (CPA), or missing legitimate CPA), which could increase flight crew workload during critical landing or takeoff phases, and possibly result in reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-08253
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-200 Freighter, -200, and -300 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a manufacturing defect that affects the durability of affected parts in the cargo and cabin compartment. This proposed AD would require an inspection of affected structural parts in the cargo and cabin compartments to determine if proper heat-treatment has been done, and replacement if necessary. We are proposing this AD to prevent crack initiation and propagation, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the fuselage.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-08250
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), Model CL-600- 2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900), and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of corrosion found on the slat and flap torque tubes in the slat and flap control system. This proposed AD would require replacement of the slat and flap torque tubes in the slat and flap control system. We are proposing this AD to prevent rupture of a corroded slat or flap torque tube. This condition could result in an inoperative slat or flap system and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2016-08247
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model AS355NP helicopters with certain fire extinguishing systems. This proposed AD would require removing and installing the fire extinguishing system so that each squib on the engine compartment fire extinguisher is controlled by a matching control button. This proposed AD is prompted by the discovery that the left-hand discharge system of the fire extinguishing system was incorrectly connected to the right-hand engine compartment and the right-hand discharge system was incorrectly connected to the left-hand engine compartment. The proposed actions would correct the connections and would prevent the fire extinguishing system discharging to the wrong engine compartment, failure of the fire extinguishing system to control a fire, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Air Plan Approval; Minnesota and Michigan; Revision to 2013 Taconite Federal Implementation Plan Establishing BART for Taconite Plants
Document Number: 2016-07818
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-12
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing a revision to the Federal implementation plan (FIP) addressing the requirement for best available retrofit technology (BART) for taconite plants in Minnesota and Michigan. In response to petitions for reconsideration, we are revising the nitrogen oxides (NOX) limits for taconite furnaces at facilities owned and operated by Cliffs Natural Resources (Cliffs) and ArcelorMittal USA LLC (ArcelorMittal). Cliffs owns and operates Tilden Mining and United Taconite. Hibbing is owned by Cliffs, ArcelorMittal and U.S. Steel and operated by Cliffs. ArcelorMittal is owner and operator of Minorca Mine. We are also revising the sulfur dioxide (SO2) requirements at two of Cliffs' facilities. We are making these changes because new information has come to light that was not available when we originally promulgated the FIP on February 6, 2013.
