Airworthiness Directives; Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-03397
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is withdrawing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) that would have applied to certain Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. Models MU-2B- 10, MU-2B-15, MU-2B-20, MU-2B-25, MU-2B-26, MU-2B-26A, MU-2B-30, MU-2B- 35, MU-2B-36, MU-2B-36A, MU-2B-40, and MU-2B-60 airplanes. The NPRM resulted from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product and would have required repetitively inspecting the wing spacer plates for cracks until they were replaced with an improved design wing spacer plates. Since issuance of the NPRM, we determined that damage is contained to the wing spacer plate with no evidence that primary structure is affected. Accordingly, the NPRM is withdrawn.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-03313
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2A12 (601) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of damage to the anti-rotation tab on a main landing gear (MLG) side brace fitting due to the installation of an incorrect side brace fitting shaft. This proposed AD would require an inspection of the MLG side brace fitting for damage, a verification of the side brace fitting shaft part number, and replacement of the side brace fitting shaft if necessary. It would also require the installation of an anti-rotation bracket. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

2018 Quadrennial Regulatory Review-Review of the Commission's Broadcast Ownership Rules
Document Number: 2019-03278
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-28
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) initiates the 2018 quadrennial review of its media ownership rules, launched pursuant to a requirement of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (1996 Act) that the Commission review its media ownership rules every four years to determine whether they remain ``necessary in the public interest as the result of competition'' and to ``repeal or modify any determine[d] to be no longer in the public interest.'' The three rules currently subject to review are the Local Radio Ownership Rule, the Local Television Ownership Rule, and the Dual Network Rule. The NPRM seeks comment on whether, given the current state of the media marketplace, the Commission should retain, modify, or eliminate any of these rules. The NPRM also seeks comment on several proposals offered as potential pro- diversity initiatives.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Electric-Powered Vehicles: Electrolyte Spillage and Electrical Shock Protection
Document Number: 2019-03181
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-28
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document proposes to amend Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 305, ``Electric-powered vehicles: Electrolyte spillage and electrical shock protection,'' to clarify the direct contact protection requirements that apply to high voltage connectors, and to explicitly permit the use of high voltage connectors that cannot be separated without the use of tools. The proposed changes to these requirements would harmonize FMVSS No. 305 with Global Technical Regulations (GTRs) No. 13 and No. 20, which explicitly permit such connectors. In addition, it would make three minor technical corrections to the standard.
Solicitations of Interest Prior to a Registered Public Offering
Document Number: 2019-03098
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-28
Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions
We are proposing a new rule under the Securities Act of 1933 that would permit issuers to engage in oral or written communications with potential investors that are, or are reasonably believed to be, qualified institutional buyers or institutional accredited investors, either prior to or following the filing of a registration statement, to determine whether such investors might have an interest in a contemplated registered securities offering. If adopted the rule would extend such accommodation currently available to emerging growth companies to all issuers.
Hazardous Materials: Oil Spill Response Plans and Information Sharing for High-Hazard Flammable Trains (FAST Act)
Document Number: 2019-02491
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-28
Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
PHMSA, in consultation with the Federal Railroad Administration and pursuant to the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) of 2015, issues this final rule to revise and clarify requirements for comprehensive oil spill response plans (COSRPs) and to expand their applicability based on petroleum oil thresholds that apply to an entire train consist. Specifically, this final rule: Expands the applicability for COSRPs; modernizes the requirements for COSRPs; requires railroads to share information about high-hazard flammable train (HHFT) operations with State and tribal emergency response commissions to improve community preparedness; and incorporates by reference a voluntary standard. The amendments in this final rule will provide regulatory flexibility and improve response readiness to mitigate effects of rail accidents and incidents involving petroleum oil and HHFTs.
