The list of institutions is amended to reflect the institutions that are granted HSACU certification by the Secretary and are eligible for HSACU programs for the period starting October 1, 2017, and ending September 30, 2018. Certification Process As stated in 7 CFR 3434.4, an institution must meet the following criteria to receive HSACU certification: PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 11869 (1) Be a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), (2) offer agriculture-related degrees, (3) not appear on the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), (4) be accredited, and (5) award at least 15% of agriculture-related degrees to Hispanic students over the two most recent academic years. NIFA obtained the latest report from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics that lists all HSIs and the degrees conferred by these institutions (completion data) during the 2015–16 academic year. NIFA used this report to identify HSIs that conferred a degree in an instructional program that appears in appendix A of 7 CFR part 3434 and to confirm that over the 2014–15 and 2015–16 academic years at least 15% of the degrees in agriculture-related fields were awarded to Hispanic students. NIFA further confirmed that these institutions were nationally accredited and were not on the exclusions listing in the System for Award Management (https://www.sam.gov/portal/SAM/ ##11). The updated list of HSACUs is based on (1) completions data from 2014–15 and 2015–16, and (2) enrollment data from Fall 2016.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737–300 and –500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report indicating that fatigue cracks were found in the lower wing skin of an airplane with winglets installed. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the lower wing skin, and repair if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective April 23, 2018. nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:37 Mar 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain The Boeing Company Model 737–300 and –500 series airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on October 6, 2017 (82 FR 46725). The NPRM was prompted by a report indicating that fatigue cracks were found in the lower wing skin of an airplane with winglets installed. The NPRM proposed to require repetitive inspections for cracking of the lower wing skin, and repair if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the lower wing skin common to the runout of stringer L–5. Such cracking could grow PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 11871 and result in loss of structural integrity of the wing, and consequent reduced, or complete loss of, controllability of the airplane. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this final rule. The following presents the comments received on the NPRM and the FAA’s response to each comment. Aviation Partners Boeing concurred with the proposed AD. Request for Manufacturer To Share Expense One commenter, Mary Lou Allen, requested that the airplane manufacturer share in the expense with the airplane’s purchaser or owner, because of the high costs associated with supplemental type certificates. We infer that the commenter wants manufacturers to be required to help pay for compliance with the proposed AD. We do not agree to this request. We provide estimates of the cost on U.S. operators for AD compliance, but do not determine who is responsible for payment. We are aware that airplane manufacturers and modifiers often have warranty agreements with owners and operators to cover some or all of the costs of modifications or repairs, but we do not participate in these agreements. We have not changed this AD in this regard. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this final rule as proposed, except for minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed Aviation Partners Boeing Service Bulletin AP737C–57– 002, dated April 5, 2017. The service information describes procedures for repetitive inspections for cracking of the lower wing skin, and repair if necessary. This service information is reasonably available because the interested parties have access to it through their normal course of business or by the means identified in the ADDRESSES section.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

HSACU Institutions for Fiscal Year 2018

    This rule makes changes to the existing list of institutions in 
appendix B of 7 CFR part 3434. The list of institutions is amended to 
reflect the institutions that are granted HSACU certification by the 
Secretary and are eligible for HSACU programs for the period starting 
October 1, 2017, and ending September 30, 2018.

Certification Process

    As stated in 7 CFR 3434.4, an institution must meet the following 
criteria to receive HSACU certification: (1) Be a Hispanic-Serving 
Institution (HSI), (2) offer agriculture-related degrees, (3) not 
appear on the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), (4) be accredited, 
and (5) award at least 15% of agriculture-related degrees to Hispanic 
students over the two most recent academic years.
    NIFA obtained the latest report from the U.S. Department of 
Education's National Center for Education Statistics that lists all 
HSIs and the degrees conferred by these institutions (completion data) 
during the 2015-16 academic year. NIFA used this report to identify 
HSIs that conferred a degree in an instructional program that appears 
in appendix A of 7 CFR part 3434 and to confirm that over the 2014-15 
and 2015-16 academic years at least 15% of the degrees in agriculture-
related fields were awarded to Hispanic students. NIFA further 
confirmed that these institutions were nationally accredited and were 
not on the exclusions listing in the System for Award Management 
(https://www.sam.gov/portal/SAM/##11).
    The updated list of HSACUs is based on (1) completions data from 
2014-15 and 2015-16, and (2) enrollment data from Fall 2016. NIFA 
identified 147 institutions that met the eligibility criteria to 
receive HSACU certification for FY 2018 (October 1, 2017 to September 
30, 2018).

Declaration of Intent To Opt Out of HSACU Designation and Apply for Non 
Land-Grant College of Agriculture (NLGCA) Designation

    As set forth in Section 7101 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Pub. 
L. 113-79), which amends 7 U.S.C. 3103, an institution that is eligible 
to be designated as an HSACU may notify the Secretary of its intent not 
to be considered an HSACU. Institutions that opt out of HSACU 
designation will have the option to apply for designation as a Non-Land 
Grant College of Agriculture (NLGCA) institution. To opt out of 
designation as an HSACU, an authorized official at the institution must 
submit a declaration of intent not to be considered an HSACU to NIFA by 
email at [email protected]. In accordance with Section 7101, a 
declaration by an institution not to be considered an HSACU shall 
remain in effect until September 30, 2018. To be eligible for NLGCA 
designation, institutions must be public colleges or universities 
offering baccalaureate or higher degrees in the study of food and 
agricultural sciences, as defined in 7 U.S.C. 3103. An online form to 
request NLGCA designation is available at http://nifa.usda.gov/webform/

    In FYs 2016 and 2017, one institution opted out of HSACU 
designation and received NLGCA designation, hence that institution is 
excluded from the FY 2018 HSACU list.

Appeal Process

    As set forth in 7 CFR 3434.8, NIFA will permit HSIs that are not 
granted HSACU certification to submit an appeal within 30 days of the 
publication of this document.

Classification

    This rule relates to internal agency management. Accordingly, 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553, notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity 
for comment are not required, and this rule may be made effective less 
than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. This rule also 
is exempt from the provisions of Executive Order 12866. This action is 
not a rule as defined by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as amended by 
the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 
U.S.C. 601 et seq., or the Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et 
seq., and thus is exempt from the provisions of those Acts. This rule 
contains no information collection or recordkeeping requirements under
