Approval of Nebraska's Air Quality Implementation Plan, Operating Permits Program, and 112(l) Program; Revision to Nebraska Administrative Code; Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule
Document Number: 2017-25576
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-28
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Due to adverse comments, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is withdrawing the direct final rule for ``Approval of Nebraska's Air Quality Implementation Plan, Operating Permits Program, and 112(l) Program; Revision to Nebraska Administrative Code,'' published in the Federal Register on October 5, 2017. Nebraska's SIP revision revised two chapters, ``Definitions'' and ``Operating Permit Modifications; Reopening for Cause''. Specifically, these revisions incorporated by reference the list of organic compounds exempt from the definition of volatile organic compound (VOC) found in the Code of Federal Regulations. Notification requirements for the operating permit program were amended to be consistent with the Federal operating permit program requirements, and the definition of ``solid waste'' was revised by the state. However, because the state's definition is inconsistent with the Federal definition, EPA was not approving the definition into the SIP. Finally, the state extended the process of ``off-permit changes'' to Class 1 operating permits. Additional grammatical and editorial changes were made in this revision.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-25253
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-01-06, which applied to certain Airbus Model A319-115, A319-132, A320-214, A320-232, A321-211, A321-213, and A321-231 airplanes. AD 2017-01-06 required inspection and replacement of certain tie rod assemblies installed on the hinged fairing assembly of the main landing gear (MLG). We issued AD 2017-01-06 to detect and correct the absence of cadmium plating on the rod end threads of the tie rod assemblies. Since we issued AD 2017- 01-06, we have determined that although cadmium plating might be absent, the rod end threads of the tie rod assemblies can withstand the expected environmental conditions, therefore the unsafe condition, as initially determined, does not exist.
