The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Arkansas to address the requirements of section 110(a)(1) and (2) of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) for the 2006 and 2012 fine particulate matter (PM2.5) National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), 2008 lead (Pb) NAAQS, 2008 ozone (O3) NAAQS, 2010 nitrogen dioxide (NO2) NAAQS, and the 2010 sulfur dioxide (SO2) NAAQS. Under CAA sections 110(a)(1) and 110(a)(2), each state is required to submit a SIP that provides for the implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of a revised primary or secondary NAAQS. CAA section 110(a)(1) and (2) require each state to make a new SIP submission within three years after EPA promulgates a new or revised NAAQS for approval into the existing SIP to assure that the SIP meets the applicable requirements for such new and revised NAAQS. This type of SIP submission is commonly referred to as an ``infrastructure SIP or ``i-SIP.'' We propose approval of this action under Section 110 of the Act.

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24813
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 707 airplanes, and Model 720 and 720B series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program to include new airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24810
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-19-17, which applied to certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 900EX and FALCON 2000EX airplanes. AD 2017-19-17 required revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to include procedures to follow when an airplane is operating in icing conditions. AD 2017-19-17 also required a detailed inspection of the wing anti-ice system ducting for the presence of a diaphragm, and follow-on actions (replacement of ducting or re- identification of the ducting part marking). This new AD retains the actions required by AD 2017-19-17, and corrects the follow-on actions for certain airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that the follow-on actions specified in AD 2017-19-17 were incorrect for certain airplanes. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24737
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2A12 (CL-601 Variant) and CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604 Variants) airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that the bushing holes on the engine mount rib might not conform to the engineering drawings and that certain inspections of the engine mount rib must be included in the airworthiness limitations section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA). This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate certain airworthiness limitation items (ALIs). We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24732
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracks found in the lower chord of the left wing rear spar. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the lower chord of the rear spar and lower aft skin and applicable on-condition actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-23989
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 757-200, -200PF, and -200CB series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of slats disbonding on airplanes on which the terminating actions of AD 2005-07-08 had been performed. We have also received reports of slats disbonding on airplanes outside of the applicability of AD 90-23-06, AD 91-22-51, and AD 2005-07-08, which also addressed slat disbonding. This AD requires determining the type of trailing edge slat wedges of the leading edge slats, repetitive inspections for disbonding on certain trailing edge slat wedges, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also provides an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
