Date: 2017-08-30
Agency: Department of Energy
The Department of Energy (``DOE'') is adopting an interpretive rule to clarify its interpretation of Section 136 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, as amended (``EISA'') and its implementing regulations for the Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program (the ``ATVM Loan Program'') authorized by Section 136. Section 136(f), which establishes requirements for the administrative costs associated with loans under the ATVM Loan Program, was implemented by DOE pursuant to a 2008 interim final rule governing the operation of the ATVM Program.

DOE is adopting this interpretive rule to explain its view that the administrative costs imposed by Congress under Section 136(f) is separate from the cost of the outside advisors engaged by DOE in connection with the review and processing of their respective loan applications, negotiation of conditional commitments, and closing of loans.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-18389
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-08-30

We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracking in the webs of the stub beams at certain fuselage stations. These cracks are the result of fatigue caused by cyclical loading from pressurization, wing loads, and landing loads. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracking of the webs of the stub beams at certain fuselage stations, and applicable on-condition actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
