In the Matter of Mr. Thomas B. Saunders
Document Number: 2019-23411
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-10-28
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued a Confirmatory Order to Mr. Thomas B. Saunders, a former executive of Southern Nuclear Operating Company (SNC). This action is based on an investigation conducted by the NRC Office of Investigations (OI), that concluded Mr. Saunders had a mechanical planner removed from the Vogtle Units 3 and 4 construction site and that Mr. Saunders was aware at that time that the mechanical planner had engaged in protected activity by raising numerous safety-related welding and module fit-up concerns, constituting an apparent violation of NRC regulations. An Alternative Dispute Resolution mediation session was held on August 15, 2019, during which Mr. Saunders and the NRC reached a preliminary agreement. Subsequently, Mr. Saunders consented to the specific actions listed in Section V of the Confirmatory Order and the NRC agrees to not pursue any further enforcement action in connection with this apparent violation.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-23394
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-10-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A300 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that bleed and air conditioning systems were contaminated by hydraulic fluid, and an investigation revealed that hydraulic fluid contaminations caused the failure of check valves installed on the hydraulic reservoir air pressurization system. This proposed AD would require repetitive functional tests of the hydraulic reservoir air pressurization lines and repair or replacement, if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes

This proposed AD was prompted by reports of sealant bead damage caused by rotation of the attachment fitting bearing assembly of a trimmable horizontal stabilizer (THS). This proposed AD would require repetitive detailed inspections (DET), and applicable corrective action(s) if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. In addition, as specified in the EASA AD, this proposed AD would provide an optional modification that would terminate the inspections. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Significant New Use Rules on Certain Chemical Substances (17-4)
Document Number: 2019-23389
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-10-28
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is issuing significant new use rules (SNURs) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for eight chemical substances which are the subject of premanufacture notices (PMNs). The chemical substances are subject to Orders issued by EPA pursuant to section 5(e) of TSCA. This action requires persons who intend to manufacture (defined by statute to include import) or process any of these eight chemical substances for an activity that is designated as a significant new use by this rule to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing that activity. Persons may not commence manufacture or processing for the significant new use until EPA has conducted a review of the notice, made an appropriate determination on the notice, and has taken such actions as are required by that determination.
Renewable Fuel Standard Program: Standards for 2020 and Biomass-Based Diesel Volume for 2021, and Response to the Remand of the 2016 Standards; Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
Document Number: 2019-23379
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-10-28
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
In a July 29, 2019 notice of proposed rulemaking, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed percentage standards for four categories of renewable fuel that would apply to obligated parties in 2020 under the Renewable Fuel Standard. This action takes into consideration certain comments received in response to the proposed rule. Based on these comments and additional information, EPA is issuing a supplemental proposal and requests comment on adjustments to the percentage standards for 2020 that result from the amended definitions of two of the terms used to calculate the percentage standards. We are proposing to project the volume of gasoline and diesel that will be exempt in 2020 due to small refinery exemptions based on a three-year average of the relief recommended by the Department of Energy (DOE). From 2016-2018 the relief recommended by the DOE would have resulted in a reduction to the renewable volume obligation of approximately 770 million RINs per year. The amended definitions proposed in this rule would effectively increase the percentage standards that apply to non-exempt obligated parties to offset future small refinery exemptions and help ensure that the required volumes are met.

Billing and Collection by VA for Medical Care and Services
Document Number: 2019-22972
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-10-28
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its regulations concerning collection and recovery by VA for medical care and services provided to an individual for treatment of a nonservice- connected disability. Specifically, this rulemaking would revise the provisions of VA regulations that determine the charges VA will bill third-party payers for non-VA care provided at VA expense, would include a time limit for which third-party payers can request a refund, and would clarify that third-party payers cannot reduce or refuse payment because of the billing methodology used to determine the charge. These revisions would clarify VA billing practices, result in more equitable charges to third-party payers, and ensure that VA collects payments timely and effectively. Additionally, this rulemaking would make certain technical corrections to the existing regulations, and amend associated definitions.
Updating the Intercarrier Compensation Regime To Eliminate Access Arbitrage
Document Number: 2019-22447
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-10-28
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission shifts financial responsibility for all interstate and intrastate terminating tandem switching and transport charges to access-stimulating local exchange carriers, and modifies its definition of access stimulation. Under the existing intercarrier compensation regime, carriers enter into agreements with entities offering high-volume calling services, route the calls through interexchange carriers at more expensive rates, and profit from the resulting access charge rates which interexchange carriers are required to pay. With this action, the Commission moves closer toward its goal of intercarrier compensation regime reform by reducing the financial incentives to engage in access stimulation.

Notice of Availability of the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for Soil Cleanup Activities at Santa Susana Field Laboratory
Document Number: 2019-23364
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-10-25
Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Agencies and Commissions
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as amended, the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA, and NASA's NEPA policy and procedures, NASA has prepared a Draft SEIS for soil cleanup activities at SSFL in Ventura County, California. The Draft SEIS has been prepared because there are significant new circumstances relevant to environmental concerns bearing on the proposed action and its impacts. Specifically, the estimated quantity of soil required to be removed has increased substantially since the publication of the 2014 FEIS. This increase has the potential to alter the environmental impacts that were evaluated in the 2014 FEIS. For this reason, NASA has determined it is appropriate to prepare a supplement to the 2014 FEIS.
