Background The Bureau was established by the Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010 (CFPA).1 Section 1011(c)(3) of the CFPA provided that the President may remove the Director of the Bureau only for inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office.2 The Bureau’s rule regarding Payday, Vehicle Title, and Certain High-Cost Loan Installments (2017 Final Rule or Rule) 3 contained two primary components: (1) Mandatory underwriting provisions requiring lenders to assess borrowers’ ability to repay before making covered loans; 4 and (2) payments provisions governing lenders’ withdrawing payments for covered loans from consumers’ bank accounts.5 On June 29, 2020, the Supreme Court held in Seila Law LLC v. CFPB that the CFPA’s removal provision violates the separation of powers.6 The Court further held that ‘‘the CFPB Director’s removal protection is severable from the other statutory provisions bearing on the CFPB’s authority. The agency may therefore continue to operate, but its Director, in light of our decision, must be removable by the President at will.’’ 7 ‘‘The only constitutional defect we have identified in the CFPB’s structure is the Director’s insulation from removal.’’ 8 The Bureau is separately issuing a rule that rescinds the mandatory underwriting provisions of the 2017 Final Rule. That rule does not affect the separate payments provisions, and this ratification is independent of that rule. II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to all Quest Aircraft Design, LLC (type certificate now held by Daher Aircraft Design, LLC), Model KODIAK 100 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2018 (83 FR 9820). The NPRM was prompted by reports of cracks on the NLG fork on Model KODIAK 100 airplanes. The NPRM proposed to require a one-time inspection to determine if an affected NLG fork is installed, repetitive inspections of the affected NLG fork for cracks, repetitive inspections of the shimmy damper bracket for looseness if an affected NLG fork is installed, and rework/replacement of parts as necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent separation of the NLG fork and consequent reduced control on landing. If the NLG fork separates on an PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 unimproved surface, the risk of the NLG digging in and the airplane overturning on the ground increases. Since the FAA issued the NPRM, the type certificate holder for the Model KODIAK 100 airplane changed from Quest Aircraft Design, LLC (Quest), to Daher Aircraft Design, LLC. This final rule reflects that change and updates the contact information to obtain service documentation. Comments The FAA 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. Request To Revise Proposed AD To Lessen Economic Impact Quest requested numerous changes to paragraphs (h), (i), and (j) of the proposed AD. In support, Quest stated that these changes would address all sources of shimmy and lessen the economic impact to operators in international locations where nondestructive testing (NDT) inspection methods are less accessible. First, Quest requested that the FAA change paragraphs (h)(1) and (i)(1) of the proposed AD to require the initial inspections only if there is shimmy. Quest stated that its analysis and review of the NLG fork determined that extended shimmy with the existing design (type A NLG fork) could result in fatigue cracks at the locations reported. The FAA disagrees with this request because there is no regulatory requirement for all pilots to report a nosewheel shimmy event. If the initial inspections were conditional on reported shimmy events, the unsafe condition would go unaddressed each time a pilot forgot or neglected to report an event. Quest also requested that the FAA revise the service information that would be required throughout the proposed AD to allow later revisions. The FAA disagrees with this request. Requiring the use of a service document that does not yet exist at the time an AD is published violates 1 CFR 51.1(f), regarding approval by the Director of the Federal Register of a publication incorporated by reference. In order for operators to use later revisions of a referenced document (issued after the publication of the AD), either the AD must be revised to reference the specific later revisions, or operators must request approval to use a later revision as an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) using the procedures in paragraph (l) of this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Bureau was established by the Consumer Financial Protection Act 
of 2010 (CFPA).\1\ Section 1011(c)(3) of the CFPA provided that the 
President may remove the Director of the Bureau only for inefficiency, 
neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Public Law 111-203, title X, 124 Stat. 1376, 1955-2113 
(2010).
    \2\ 12 U.S.C. 5491(c)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Bureau's rule regarding Payday, Vehicle Title, and Certain 
High-Cost Loan Installments (2017 Final Rule or Rule) \3\ contained two 
primary components: (1) Mandatory underwriting provisions requiring 
lenders to assess borrowers' ability to repay before making covered 
loans; \4\ and (2) payments provisions governing lenders' withdrawing 
payments for covered loans from consumers' bank accounts.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ 82 FR 54472 (Nov. 17, 2017).
    \4\ 12 CFR 1041.4-1041.6, 1041.10, 1041.11, 1041.12(b)(1)-(3).
    \5\ 12 CFR 1041.2, 1041.3, 1041.7-1041.9, 1041.12(a), (b) 
introductory text, (b)(4)-(5), 1041.13.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 29, 2020, the Supreme Court held in Seila Law LLC v. CFPB 
that the CFPA's removal provision violates the separation of powers.\6\ 
The Court further held that ``the CFPB Director's removal protection is 
severable from the other statutory provisions bearing on the CFPB's 
authority. The agency may therefore continue to operate, but its 
Director, in light of our decision, must be removable by the President 
at will.'' \7\ ``The only constitutional defect we have identified in 
the CFPB's structure is the Director's insulation from removal.'' \8\

    \8\ Id. at 32.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Bureau is separately issuing a rule that rescinds the mandatory 
underwriting provisions of the 2017 Final Rule. That rule does not 
affect the separate payments provisions, and this ratification is 
independent of that rule.

II. Ratification

    The Bureau, through its Director, hereby affirms and ratifies the 
payment provisions \9\ of the 2017 Final Rule.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ 12 CFR 1041.2, 1041.3, 1041.7-1041.9, 1041.12(a), (b) 
introductory text, (b)(4)-(5), 1041.13.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

[[Page 41906]]

    The Bureau's Director is familiar with the payment provisions and 
has also conducted a further evaluation of them for purposes of this 
ratification. Based on the Director's evaluation of the payment 
provisions, it is the Director's considered judgment that they should 
be ratified.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ In ratifying the payment provisions, the Bureau ratifies 
the procedural steps that were necessary to issue the payment 
provisions, including the decision to propose the payment provisions 
for public comment. See 81 FR 47863 (proposed July 22, 2016).
