Type: Rule
Date: 2007-10-26
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (Commission) is amending Commission Regulation 18.05 in two respects: to make it explicit that persons holding or controlling reportable positions on a designated contract market (DCM) or derivatives transaction execution facility (DTEF) must retain books and records and make available to the Commission upon request any pertinent information with respect to all other positions and transactions in the commodity in which the trader has a reportable position, including positions held or controlled or transactions executed on all reporting markets, over-the-counter (OTC) and/or pursuant to Sections 2(d), 2(g) or 2(h)(1)-(2) of the Commodity Exchange Act (Act) or Part 35 of the Commission's regulations, on exempt commercial markets operating pursuant to Sections 2(h)(3)-(5) of the Act (ECMs), on exempt boards of trade operating pursuant to Section 5d of the Act (EBOTs), and on foreign boards of trade (FBOTs); and to make the regulation clearer and more complete with respect to hedging activity.

Agency Forms Submitted for OMB Review, Request for Comments

Agency: Railroad Retirement Board, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to request a revision to a currently approved collection of information: 3220-0022, Application and Claim for Unemployment Benefits and Employment Service consisting of Form(s) UI-1 and UI-1 (Internet), Application for Unemployment Benefits and Employment Service, and UI-3 and UI-3 (Internet), Claim for Unemployment Benefits. Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information to determine (1) the practical utility of the collection; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information that is the subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of publication date. Section 2 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), provides unemployment benefits for qualified railroad employees. These benefits are generally payable for each day of unemployment in excess of four during a registration period (normally a period of 14 days). Section 12 of the RUIA provides that the RRB establish, maintain and operate free employment facilities directed toward the reemployment of railroad employees. The procedures for applying for the unemployment benefits and employment service and for registering and claiming the benefits are prescribed in 20 CFR part 325. Form UI-1 (or its Internet equivalent, Form UI-1 (Internet)), Application for Unemployment Benefits and Employment Service, is completed by a claimant for unemployment benefits once in a benefit year, at the time of first registration. Completion of Form UI-1 or UI- 1 (Internet) also registers an unemployment claimant for the RRB's employment service. The RRB also utilizes Form UI-3, (or its Internet equivalent Form UI-3 (Internet)) Claim for Unemployment Benefits for use in claiming unemployment benefits for days of unemployment in a particular registration period, normally a period of 14 days. Completion of Forms UI-1, UI-1(Internet), UI-3 and UI-3 (Internet) is required to obtain or retain benefits. The number of responses required of each claimant varies, depending on their period of unemployment. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (72 FR 47085-86 on August 22, 2007) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.

Document Number: E7-20907
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-10-25
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
The Tennessee Valley Authority (``TVA'') is publishing as a final rule a regulation governing access to TVA information and records in connection with legal proceedings in which neither the United States nor TVA is a party.

It also establishes procedures for requesters to follow when making demands on or requests to a TVA employee for official documents or to provide testimony. This final rule standardizes TVA's past practices, promotes uniformity in decisions, conserves the ability of TVA to conduct official business, preserves its employee resources, protects confidential information, provides guidance to requestors, minimizes involvement in matters unrelated to TVA's mission and programs, avoids wasteful allocation of agency resources, and avoids spending public time and money for private purpose.

Establishment of Policies and Service Rules for the Broadcasting-Satellite Service
Document Number: E7-20971
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-10-24
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this Order on Reconsideration, the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) reconsiders, in part, sua sponte, its Report and Order in this proceeding in which it adopted processing and service rules for the 17/24 GHz Broadcasting-Satellite Service (BSS). In the Report and Order, the Commission adopted a framework in which 17/24 GHz BSS space stations would operate at orbital locations spaced at four- degree intervals, as set forth in Appendix F of the Report and Order. In this Order on Reconsideration, the Commission provides additional flexibility to 17/24 GHz BSS space station operators by allowing them to operate their space stations, upon request, at locations other than those specified in Appendix F of the Report and Order. Specifically, the Commission will assign space stations to orbital locations that are offset from the Appendix F locations by up to one degree, without requiring them to reduce power or accept additional interference, if there are no licensed or prior-filed applications for 17/24 GHz BSS space stations less than four degrees away from the proposed offset space station.

State of Nevada; Denial of a Petition for Rulemaking
Document Number: E7-20919
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-10-24
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is denying a petition for rulemaking submitted by the State of Nevada (PRM-63-2). The petition requests that NRC amend its regulations for the proposed geologic repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada (YM) to specify the limits of permissible spent fuel storage at the YM site. Petitioner believes that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is planning to construct an Aging Facility at the YM site designed to store 21,000 metric tons of heavy metal in what petitioner believes is a manifest violation of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as amended, and the Commission's regulations. NRC is denying the petition because NRC's current regulations are consistent with law and do not permit storage of spent nuclear fuel at the YM site unless such storage is integral to waste handling, necessary treatment, and disposal at the proposed repository, including storage which is integral to the thermal-loading strategy for disposal that DOE may include in its design of the entire repository system. DOE must make the case, in its anticipated license application, that any contemplated storage of spent nuclear fuel is permissible because it is integral to waste handling, necessary treatment, and disposal activities. NRC believes that, without an application currently before the agency, the issues raised by the petition are best addressed during the agency's review of the application when a final design will be available and an opportunity to request a hearing will be offered.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is denying a petition for rulemaking (PRM-35-19) submitted by William Stein, III, M.D. (petitioner). The petitioner requested that the NRC amend the regulations that govern medical use of byproduct material concerning training for parenteral administration of certain radioactive drugs samarium-153 lexidronam (Quadramet), iodine-131 tositumomab (Bexxar), and yttrium-90 ibritumomab tiuxetan (Zevalin)used to treat cancer. The petitioner believes that these regulations are unduly burdensome for the use of these drugs. The petitioner requested that the regulations be amended to codify an 80-hour Laboratory and classroom, training and appropriate work experience, and written attestation as appropriate and sufficient for physicians desiring to attain authorized user status for therapeutic administrations of these unsealed byproduct materials.
