The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing final regulations to remove its regulation concerning the submission of claims by preference eligibles to OPM and the recognition of representatives by OPM. The purpose of this revision to part 990 is to eliminate the part because it is obsolete. OPM no longer adjudicates claims or appeals under sections 3502, 3503, or 7701 of title 5, United States Code. That appellate function was vested in the Merit Systems Protection Board, created by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. Accordingly, there is no basis to retain the provisions of part 990 in the Code of Federal Regulations.
Amendments Pertinent to Registered Entities and Exempt Commercial Markets
Document Number: E7-15370
Type: Proposed Rule

Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The proposed regulations expand the set of persons delegated by the Commission with the authority to issue exempt commercial market (ECM) special calls to include the Director of the Division of Enforcement and that Director's designees. The proposed regulations clarify the process for listing, clearing, or implementing registered entity products or rules, including dormant products and rules, and amend the definition of emergency to clarify that persons other than members of the governing board of a registered entity may declare an emergency on behalf of the governing board. The proposed regulations also clarify the duration of the rule approval period for designated contract market (DCM) rules that may change a material term or condition of a contract based on the agricultural commodities enumerated in section 1a(4) of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA or Act). Finally, the proposed regulations clarify how far in advance of implementation registered entities must submit self-certified contracts and rules to the Commission, and identify three additional categories of rules that a registered entity may implement without filing certified submissions or receiving prior Commission approval.
Medical Use of Byproduct Material-Minor Corrections and Clarifications
Document Number: 07-3976
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-08-13
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to correct or clarify the rule language in several sections in the regulations that govern specific domestic licenses to manufacture or transfer certain items containing byproduct material and medical use of byproduct material. The regulations that govern medical use of byproduct materials were amended in their entirety on April 24, 2002 (67 FR 20249). Subsequently, these regulations were amended again to revise the training and experience requirements for the medical use of byproduct material on March 30, 2005 (70 FR 16336). Through implementation of these revised regulations, the NRC has identified additional changes that need to be made to these regulations. This action is necessary to clarify certain provisions and to make certain conforming changes to the regulations.

National Environmental Policy Act; Constellation Program
Document Number: E7-15679
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-08-10
Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Agencies and Commissions
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508), NASA's NEPA policy and procedures (14 CFR Part 1216, Subpart 1216.3), and Executive Order 12114, NASA has prepared and issued a Draft PEIS for the proposed Constellation Program to assist in the NASA decision making process. The Proposed Action is to continue preparations for and to implement the Constellation Program. The focus of the Constellation Program is the development of the flight systems and Earth-based ground infrastructure required to enable the United States to have continued access to space and to enable future human missions to the International Space Station, the Moon, Mars, and beyond. The Constellation Program also would be responsible for developing and testing flight hardware, and performing mission operations once the infrastructure is sufficiently developed. The only alternative to the Proposed Action discussed in detail is the No Action Alternative where NASA would not continue preparations for nor implement the Constellation Program and therefore, would forego the opportunity for human exploration of space using U.S. space vehicles.

Document Number: E7-15635
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-08-10
Agency: Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board (Agency) proposes to amend its regulations to reflect the requirements stated in the Treasury Regulations interpreting I.R.C. 401(a)(31) to provide additional means to verify that an amount is eligible for rollover to the TSP. The Agency proposes to amend its regulations to clarify that the procedures applicable to an employee who was misclassified as either CSRS or FERS also apply to an employee who elects retroactive non- appropriated fund (NAF) retirement coverage. The Agency proposes to add a rule regarding the production and authentication of records. The Agency would authenticate records in a manner consistent with Federal law and regulations. The Agency proposes to amend its death benefit payment regulations in order to allow a non-spouse beneficiary to transfer a death benefit payment to an inherited IRA as authorized by the Pension Protection Act. The Agency proposes to amend its loan regulations to reflect the changes brought by the Bankruptcy Abuse and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. Specifically, the amendments would reflect that a bankruptcy court now lacks jurisdiction over a TSP loan. The Agency proposes to amend its regulations to clarify its power of attorney regulations by eliminating examples of general and special powers of attorney, some of which would no longer be acceptable to the Agency, and directing participants to a sample form at http:// www.tsp.gov.

Revisions of Limited Offering Exemptions in Regulation D
Document Number: E7-15506
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-08-10
Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions
We propose to revise Regulation D to provide additional flexibility to issuers and to clarify and improve the application of the rules. We propose to create a new exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act of 1933 for offers and sales of securities to ``large accredited investors.'' The exemption would permit limited advertising in an exempt offering where each purchaser meets the definition of ``large accredited investor.'' We also propose to revise the term ``accredited investor'' in Regulation D to clarify the definition and reflect developments since its adoption. In addition, we propose to shorten the timing required by the integration safe harbor in Regulation D, and to apply uniform disqualification provisions to all offerings seeking to rely on Regulation D. We are soliciting comments on possible revisions to Rule 504. Finally, we also solicit additional comments on the definition of ``accredited natural person'' for certain pooled investment vehicles in Securities Act Rules 216 and 509 that we proposed in December 2006.

Agency: International Boundary and Water Commission, United States and Mexico, Agencies and Commissions
Pursuant to section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, the United States Section, International Boundary and Water Commission (USIBWC) has prepared a Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (Draft PEIS) for future improvements to the Tijuana River Flood Control Project operated by the USIBWC in southern San Diego County. The Draft PEIS, prepared in cooperation with the United States Army Corps of Engineers, analyzes potential effects of the No Action Alternative and two action alternatives for future improvements. Because several measures under consideration are at a conceptual level of development, the USIBWC has taken a broad programmatic look at the potential environmental implications of future implementation measures. The USIBWC will apply the programmatic evaluation as an overall guidance for future environmental evaluations of individual improvement projects whose implementation is anticipated or possible within a 20-year timeframe. Once any given improvement project is identified for future implementation, site-specific environmental documentation will be developed based on project specifications and PEIS findings. Public participation in the evaluation of potential effect is encouraged. A public hearing will be held at the City of Imperial Beach, California, to receive oral comments on the Draft PEIS from interested organizations and individuals through transcription by a certified court reporter. Written comments may be submitted at the public hearings or mailed to the USIBWC during the 45-day public review period to the contact and address below.
