Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule Safe Harbor Proposed Self-Regulatory Guidelines; the Entertainment Software Rating Board's COPPA Safe Harbor Program Application To Modify Program Requirements, 14611-14613 [2018-06976]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 66 / Thursday, April 5, 2018 / Proposed Rules 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 proposes an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of McEntire JNGB, due to the decommissioning of the McEntire NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. The changes would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates of the McEntire JNGB, Shaw AFB, Sumter Airport, Sumter, SC, and the McEntire JNGB TACAN also would be adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database, and the airport names would be updated to McEntire JNGB (formerly McEntire ANGB), and Sumter Airport (formerly Sumter Municipal Airport). Also, this action would update the name of the McEntire ANGB TACAN navigation aid to the McEntire JNGB TACAN. Finally, an editorial change would be made to the airspace designation removing the city from the airport name associated with McEntire JNGB and Shaw AFB to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters. Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000 and 6005, respectively 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. amozie on DSK30RV082PROD with PROPOSALS Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:15 Apr 04, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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.

VA’s authority for publishing this proposed rule reads as follows: 5 U.S.C. 552, 552a, 38 U.S.C. 501(a), unless otherwise noted. The FOIA, codified at 5 U.S.C. 552, requires an agency to publish public guidance regarding its implementation of the statute, such as rules of procedure and substantive rules of general applicability. The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, codified at 5 U.S.C. 552a, requires an agency to publish its rules and procedures implementing that statute. Section 501(a) of title 38, U.S.C., authorizes the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to prescribe rules and regulations to carry out the laws administered by VA. We propose to update VA’s regulations pertaining to the release of information from VA claimant records; the regulations are codified at 38 CFR 1.500 through 1.527. Specifically, VA proposes to amend 38 CFR 1.519 regarding the release of lists of names and addresses. In addition, we propose to amend VA’s regulations pertaining to release of information under the FOIA. VA’s current FOIA regulations are codified at 38 CFR 1.550 through 1.562. We propose to update these regulations to ensure compliance with the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, Public Law 114–185, streamline existing procedures based on our experience administering the FOIA, clarify portions of the regulations to make the regulations and VA’s implementing procedures consistent with applicable law and easier for the public to understand, eliminate inherent conflict, ensure that the Department’s intent is clear with regard to the agency’s processing of requests for records and information under these statutes, and generally reorganize provisions as necessary. We have also made minor, nonsubstantive changes to the regulations to correct typographical or grammatical SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 14613 errors and make the language of the text generally more consistent. Finally, we propose to amend VA’s regulations pertaining to the release of information from claimant records protected under the Privacy Act of 1974; the regulations are codified at 38 CFR 1.575 through 1.584. Specifically, we propose to amend 38 CFR 1.577(c) and 1.577(e) pertaining to VA’s procedures regarding requests for access to records and fees, respectively, and 38 CFR 1.580 pertaining to administrative review of denials of requests for amendment of records. Changes to 38 CFR Part 1 Release of Information From Department of Veterans Affairs Claimant Records, 1.500–1.527 1.519 Lists of Names and Addresses Current § 1.519(c) provides, in part, that the Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Information Resources Management, with the concurrence of the General Counsel (emphasis added), is authorized to release names and addresses of present or former personnel of the armed services and their dependents from VA records to organizations under specific circumstances outlined in that section. Current § 1.519(e) provides that a denial of a request for the release of names and addresses of present or former personnel of the armed services and their dependents from VA records may be appealed to the General Counsel. We propose to amend § 1.519(c) to delete the requirement that the General Counsel concur in a release of names and addresses; this requirement inherently conflicts with the General Counsel’s authority to address appeals in these cases. As it stands, the regulation requires the General Counsel to be involved in the initial determination and address the appeal regarding the release of information. In order to preserve the integrity of the appeals process, however, the General Counsel should review the request for the first time on appeal. Removing the requirement that the General Counsel concur in the determination of Information Resources Management in these cases would resolve this conflict. Procedures for Disclosure of Records Under the Freedom of Information Act, 1.550–1.562 We propose to make minor stylistic changes throughout the regulations as necessary that have no substantive effect. We also propose more specific and substantive revisions as outlined below. E:\FR\FM\05APP1.SGM 05APP1
