Regulation of Fuels and Fuel Additives: Removal of the Reformulated Gasoline Program From the Northern Kentucky Portion of the Cincinnati-Hamilton Ozone Maintenance Area
Document Number: 2019-01320
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
In this final action, EPA is amending its reformulated gasoline regulations to reflect that Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties in Kentucky (the Northern Kentucky Area), which are part of the Cincinnati-Hamilton, Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana ozone area, are no longer federal reformulated gasoline (RFG) covered areas as of July 1, 2018. As described in a separate document published on May 16, 2018, pursuant to EPA's regulations, EPA approved an April 18, 2017 petition from the state of Kentucky to opt-out of the federal RFG program and removed the requirement to sell federal RFG in the Northern Kentucky Area as of July 1, 2018. This effective date applies to retailers, wholesale purchaser-consumers, refiners, importers, and distributors. This rulemaking merely conforms the list of RFG covered areas in the regulations to reflect the effective date of the opt-out for the Northern Kentucky Area.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01244
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 787-8, 787-9, and 787-10 airplanes. This AD requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. This AD was prompted by reports of warpage of internal engine fire handle components, which can cause binding and prevent proper operation. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems) Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01243
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics Model SAAB 2000 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by an event where the airplane did not respond to the flightcrew's flight control inputs because the pitch trim switches did not disconnect the autopilot. This proposed AD would require modifying the wiring installation for the autopilot disconnect logic. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products: Energy Conservation Standards for Residential Furnace Fans; Correction
Document Number: 2019-01242
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Department of Energy
On July 3, 2014, the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') published a final rule adopting new energy conservation standards for residential furnace fans (hereafter the ``July 2014 final rule''). This correction addresses typographical errors that appear in both the preamble of the July 2014 final rule and regulatory text in the Code of Federal Regulations (``CFR''). In certain locations (primarily table headings), the units for fan energy rating (``FER'') were inadvertently listed as ``Watts/cfm.'' This document corrects the units designation to ``Watts/1000 cfm.'' Neither the error nor the corrections in this document affect the substance of the energy conservation standards rulemaking or any conclusions reached in support of the final rule.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01237
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A319-113 and -114 airplanes, and Model A320-211 and - 212 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that a life- limit of 64,000 flight cycles has been established for certain titanium crossbeams of the forward engine mount. This proposed AD would require repetitive replacements of all affected crossbeams of the forward engine mount. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
