Supplementary Agreement on Social Security Between the United States and Sweden; Entry Into Force
Document Number: E7-21585
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-11-02
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The Commissioner of Social Security gives notice that on November 1, 2007, a supplementary agreement will enter into force which amends the Social Security agreement between the United States (U.S.) and Sweden that has been in effect since January 1, 1987. The supplementary agreement, which was signed on June 24, 2004, was concluded pursuant to section 233 of the Social Security Act. When the original agreement was concluded, Sweden had a two-tier Social Security system that consisted of an earnings-related, defined- benefit program and a residence-based, flat-rate benefit program. Recent Swedish legislation restructured the system. People born after 1953 are now covered by a program consisting of three components. The new Swedish system includes an earnings-related, defined-contribution benefit program administered by the government, a program of individual investment accounts, and a guaranteed minimum pension payable if income-based pensions and certain other income fall below specified levels. The primary purpose of the supplementary agreement is to conform the Swedish benefit provisions of the original agreement to Sweden's new Social Security system. The supplementary agreement also changes the provision that authorizes SSA to take into account Swedish periods of coverage in determining eligibility for U.S. Totalization benefits so that it refers to periods under the new Swedish pension program rather than the old program. The new Swedish Social Security law allows people to qualify for most benefits with very little coverage credit. It is not expected, therefore, that many people will need to have their U.S. and Swedish coverage credits totalized to become eligible for most Swedish benefits. The supplementary agreement provides that U.S. Social Security benefits will not be counted in applying pension offsets that normally reduce the amount of Swedish disability benefits. Thus, the supplementary agreement will provide U.S. workers enhanced disability benefit protection under the Swedish system at little, if any, additional cost to the U.S. Social Security system. In addition to the changes in the U.S. and Swedish benefit provisions, the supplementary agreement updates several other provisions to take account of amendments to both U.S. and Swedish laws and to conform the wording of the agreement to the more recent Totalization agreements concluded by the United States. Other changes in the agreement are merely clarifications to reflect the manner in which the agreement is currently applied. Individuals who wish to obtain copies of the supplementary agreement or want general information about its provisions may visit the Social Security Administration's Web site at http:// www.socialsecurity.gov/international or may write to the Social Security Administration, Office of International Programs, Post Office Box 17741, Baltimore, Maryland 21235.

Annual Independent Audits and Reporting Requirements
Document Number: E7-21168
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-02
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
Section 36 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act) and the FDIC's implementing regulations (part 363) set forth annual independent audit and reporting requirements for insured depository institutions with $500 million or more in total assets. Given changes in the industry, certain sound audit, reporting, and audit committee practices incorporated in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX); and the FDIC's experience in administering part 363, the FDIC is proposing to amend part 363 of its regulations. These amendments are designed to further the objectives of section 36 by incorporating these sound practices into part 363 and to provide clearer and more complete guidance to institutions and independent public accountants concerning compliance with the requirements of section 36 and part 363. As required by section 36, the FDIC has consulted with the other federal banking agencies. The FDIC is also proposing a technical amendment to its rules and procedures (part 308, subpart U) for the removal, suspension, or debarment of accountants and accounting firms.

Consideration of Administrative Transfer of national Voter Registration Act Regulations
Document Number: 07-5447
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-11-02
Agency: Election Assistance Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Help America Vote Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107-252, 116 Stat. 1727, 42 U.S.C. 15532) transferred authority to promulgate regulations under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) (Pub. L. 93- 31, 197 Stat. 77, 42 U.S.C. 1973gg-1 et. seq. at 41 U.S.C. 1973gg-7(a)) from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to the Election Assistance Commission (EAC). The EAC is presently considering the administrative transfer of NVRA regulations previously adopted and maintained by the FEC. These regulations are currently located at 11 CFR Part 8. In accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act (APA), this administrative transfer of the regulations would make no substantive changes to the FEC regulations and would be made without public comment. The only changes made would be technical, such as the address and contact information for the responsible agency. Following this administrative transfer of the regulations, the EAC would begin efforts to substantively amend the rules. This rulemaking process would include substantial public involvement, including public notice and comment pursuant to the APA. The EAC currently seeks public comment on whether the agency should administratively transfer regulations previously adopted and maintained by the FEC regarding the NVRA, currently located at 11 CFR Part 8, and then substantively amend those rules. Please note that the EAC does not seek substantive comment on the content of the existing regulations or potential modifications to the regulations.

IP-Enabled Services; Implementation of Sections 255 and 251(a)(2) of The Communications Act of 1934, as Enacted by The Telecommunications Act of 1996: Access to Telecommunications Service, Telecommunications Equipment and Customer Premises Equipment by Persons With Disabilities; Telecommunications Relay Services and Speech-to-Speech Services for Individuals With Hearing and Speech Disabilities; The Use of N11 Codes and Other Abbreviated Dialing Arrangements
Document Number: E7-21525
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-01
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission grants in part and denies in part petitions filed by the Voice on the Net (VON) Coalition, United States Telecom Association (USTelecom) and Hamilton Telephone Company (Hamilton) seeking a stay or waiver of certain aspects of the Commission's Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) Order (VoIP TRS Order). The Commission recognizes that, in certain circumstances, there are technical challenges to the ability of interconnected VoIP providers to route 711 abbreviated TRS dialing access calls to an ``appropriate relay center,'' as that term is clarified herein. Similarly, the Commission recognizes that, in certain circumstances, TRS providers receiving 711 emergency calls via an interconnected VoIP service may not be able to determine an appropriate public safety answering point (PSAP) to call in compliance with the TRS emergency call handling requirements. As a result, the Commission finds good cause to grant to interconnected VoIP providers a limited, six month waiver of the requirement that they route 711 calls to an appropriate relay center. The Commission also finds good cause to grant for a period of six months a limited waiver of the TRS emergency call handling requirements, as applied to interconnected VoIP customers, so that TRS providers can implement a means of directing the outbound leg of a 711 call received via an interconnected VoIP service to an appropriate PSAP.

In this document, the Commission seeks comment on petitions filed by the Voice on the Net (VON) Coalition, the United States Telecom Association (USTelecom), and Hamilton Telephone Company (Hamilton) seeking a stay or waiver of certain aspects of the Commission's Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) Order (VoIP TRS Order). In particular, the Commission seeks comment on technical solutions to the ability of interconnected VoIP providers to route all 711 calls to an appropriate relay center and to the ability of a relay center to identify the appropriate public safety answering point (PSAP) to call when receiving an emergency call via 711 abbreviated TRS dialing access and an interconnected VoIP service. The Commission expects that interested parties will work together to achieve technical solutions that will enable emergency 711 calls placed through interconnected VoIP providers to be handled in accordance with the Commission's emergency call handling procedures.
