This subpart, including Article 4A as incorporated herein, and the operating circulars of the Reserve Banks issued in accordance with paragraph (c) of this section govern the rights and obligations of parties to funds transfers sent through the Fedwire Funds Service as provided in paragraph (b) of this section. To the extent there is any inconsistency between a financial messaging standard adopted by the Fedwire Funds Service and this subpart, this subpart shall prevail. ■ 14. In § 210.26, revise paragraph (e) to read as follows: § 210.26 Definitions. * * * * * (e) Fedwire Funds Service and Fedwire means the funds-transfer system owned and operated by the Federal Reserve Banks that is used primarily for the transmission and settlement of payment orders governed by this subpart. Fedwire does not include the system for making automated clearing house transfers. * * * * * §§ 210.9, 210.25, and 210.29 Appendix A to Subpart B of Part 210— Commentary sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS * * * * Section 210.25—Authority, Purpose, and Scope * * * * * (e) Financial messaging standards. This paragraph makes clear that financial messaging standards, including the financial messaging components, elements, technical documentation, tags, and terminology used to implement those standards, do not confer or connote legal status or responsibilities. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:41 Mar 14, 2018 Jkt 244001 * * * * * Section 210.32—Federal Reserve Bank Liability; Payment of Interest * [Amended] 15. In addition to the amendments set forth above, in 12 CFR part 210, remove the words ‘‘Fedwire’’ and add, in their place, the words ‘‘the Fedwire Funds Service’’ in the following places: (a) Section 210.9(b)(4)(i)(A); (b) Sections 210.25(a), (b)(3); and (c) Section 210.29(b). Appendix A to subpart B of part 210 [Amended] ■ 16. In Appendix A to subpart B of part 210: (a) Under ‘‘Section 210.25— Authority, Purpose, and Scope’’, add paragraph (e). (b) Under ‘‘Section 210.32—Federal Reserve Bank Liability; Payment of Interest’’, revise paragraph (b). The additions and revisions read as follows: ■ * Instead, subpart B of Regulation J and Federal Reserve Bank operating circulars govern the rights and obligations of parties to funds transfers sent through the Fedwire Funds Service as provided in section 210.25(b). Thus, to the extent there is any inconsistency between a financial messaging standard adopted by the Fedwire Funds Service and subpart B of Regulation J, subpart B of Regulation J, including Article 4A as adopted in its appendix, will prevail. In the ISO 20022 financial messaging standard, for example, the term agent is used to refer to a variety of bank parties to a funds transfer (e.g., debtor agent, creditor agent, intermediary agent). Notwithstanding use of that term in the standard and in message tags, such banks are not the agents of any party to a funds transfer and owe no duty to any other party to such a funds transfer except as provided in subpart B of Regulation J (including Article 4A) or by express agreement. The ISO 20022 financial messaging standard also permits information to be carried in a funds-transfer message regarding persons that are not parties to that funds transfer (e.g., ultimate debtor, ultimate creditor, initiating party) for regulatory, compliance, remittance, or other purposes. An ‘‘ultimate debtor’’ is not an ‘‘originator’’ as defined in Article 4A. The relationship between the ultimate debtor and the originator (what the ISO 20022 standard calls the ‘‘debtor’’) is determined by law other than Article 4A. * * * * (b) Payment of interest. (1) Under article 4A, a Federal Reserve Bank may be required to pay compensation in the form of interest to another party in connection with its handling of a funds transfer. For example, payment of compensation in the form of interest is required in certain situations pursuant to sections 4A–204 (relating to refund of payment and duty of customer to report with respect to unauthorized payment order), 4A–209 (relating to acceptance of payment order), 4A–210 (relating to rejection of payment order), 4A–304 (relating to duty of sender to report erroneously executed payment order), 4A–305 (relating to liability for late or improper execution or failure to execute a payment order), 4A–402 (relating to obligation of sender to pay receiving bank), and 4A–404 (relating to obligation of beneficiary’s bank to pay and give notice to beneficiary). (2) Section 210.32(b) requires Federal Reserve Banks to provide compensation through an explicit interest payment. Under section 4A–506(a), the amount of such interest may be determined by agreement between the sender and receiving bank or by funds-transfer system rule. If there is no such agreement, under section 4A–506(b), the amount of interest is based on the federal funds rate. Similarly, compensation in the form of explicit interest will be paid to government senders, receiving banks, or beneficiaries described in § 210.25(d) if they are entitled to interest under this subpart. A Federal Reserve Bank may also, in its discretion, pay PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 explicit interest directly to a remote party to a Fedwire funds transfer that is entitled to interest, rather than providing compensation to its direct sender or receiving bank. * * * * * By order of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, February 28, 2018.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: This action proposes to modify Class D airspace at Appleton International Airport (formerly Outagamie County Airport), Appleton, WI.

This action would enhance the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport. Also, the airport name and geographic coordinates would be adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective 
September 15, 2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mesquite Airport, Mesquite, 
NV, to within 2.5 miles northwest and 5.5 miles southeast (from 1.8 
miles each side) of the airport 233[deg] bearing (from the Mormon Mesa 
VORTAC 068[deg] bearing) extending to 10 miles southwest of the 
airport. This proposed airspace redesign is necessary to accommodate 
new RNAV procedures for this airport.
    Additionally, this action would update the geographic coordinates 
of the airport to match the FAA's aeronautical database.. Class E 
airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.11B, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 
1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation 
as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
