Partial Approval and Partial Disapproval of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Arizona; West Pinal County; 1987 PM10
Document Number: 2020-29092
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-08
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve in part and to disapprove in part the state implementation plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of Arizona to meet Clean Air Act (CAA or ``Act'') requirements for the 1987 PM10 national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS or ``standard'') in the West Pinal County PM10 nonattainment area. The State of Arizona's ``2015 West Pinal Moderate PM10 Nonattainment Area SIP'' (``West Pinal County PM10 Plan'') addresses the CAA nonattainment area requirements for the 1987 PM10 NAAQS, including requirements for an emissions inventory, an attainment demonstration, reasonable further progress, reasonably available control measures, contingency measures, and motor vehicle emissions budgets. The EPA is proposing to approve the base year 2008 emissions inventory for direct PM10 and to disapprove the remaining elements of the West Pinal County PM10 Plan.

We, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), announce revisions to our December 9, 2014, proposed designation of critical habitat for the Arctic subspecies of the ringed seal (Pusa hispida hispida) under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Resolution Planning
Document Number: 2020-28812
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-08
Agency: Federal Housing Finance Agency
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is seeking comment on a proposed rule that would require Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) to develop plans to facilitate their rapid and orderly resolution in the event FHFA is appointed receiver. A resolution planning rule is an important part of FHFA's on-going effort to develop a robust prudential regulatory framework for the Enterprises, including capital, liquidity, and stress testing requirements, as well as enhanced oversight, which will be critical to FHFA supervision of the Enterprises after they exit the conservatorships. In addition, a resolution plan as proposed to be required would support FHFA if appointed as receiver to, among other things, minimize disruption in the national housing finance markets by providing for the continued operation of an Enterprise's core business lines by a limited-life regulated entity (LLRE); ensure that investors in mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by the Enterprises and in Enterprise unsecured debt bear losses in accordance with the priority of payments set out in the Safety and Soundness Act while minimizing unnecessary losses and costs to these investors; and, help foster market discipline in part through FHFA publication of ``public'' sections of Enterprise resolution plans.

The Board also proposes to simplify the formula used to calculate the amount of interest paid on balances maintained by or on behalf of eligible institutions in master accounts at Federal Reserve Banks, and to make other conforming changes.

Enterprise Liquidity Requirements
Document Number: 2020-28204
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-08
Agency: Federal Housing Finance Agency
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) requests comment on a proposed rule that would implement four liquidity and funding requirements for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises). The 2008 financial crisis demonstrated substantial weaknesses in the liquidity positions of the Enterprises. Liquidity and funding challenges were a significant contributing factor to establishment of the conservatorships in September 2008. The proposed rule builds on the improvements made to the U.S. banking supervision framework's regulation of institutions' liquidity requirements, and on experience since the 2008 financial crisis including with the more recent 2020 COVID-19-related financial market stress. FHFA believes that a robust Enterprise liquidity framework will improve market confidence in the Enterprises' ability to fulfill their mission and provide countercyclical support to housing finance markets in times of stress, while further minimizing the likelihood that they will need further taxpayer support. FHFA envisions that an appropriate framework would incent the Enterprises to build their liquidity portfolios in good times, so that it is available to be deployed as necessary in times of stress.

Modernizing Unbundling and Resale Requirements in an Era of Next-Generation Networks and Services
Document Number: 2020-25254
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-01-08
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission eliminates unbundling requirements, subject to reasonable transition periods, for enterprise- grade DS1 and DS3 loops here there is evidence of actual and potential competition, for broadband-capable DS0 loops and subloops in the most densely populated areas, for operations support systems nationwide except for the purposes of managing remaining UNEs, number portability, and interconnection, and for voice-grade narrowband loops, multiunit premises subloops, and network interface devices nationwide. The Commission preserves unbundling requirements for DS0 loops in less densely populated areas and DS1 and DS3 loops in areas without sufficient evidence of competition. The Commission further eliminates unbundled dark fiber transport provisioned from wire centers within a half-mile of competitive fiber networks, but provides an eight-year transition period for existing circuits so as to avoid stranding investment and last-mile deployment by competitive LECs that may harm consumers. The Report and Order also forbears from remaining Avoided- Cost Resale obligations. In all, the Commission ends unbundling and resale requirements where they stifle technology transitions and broadband deployment, but preserves unbundling requirements where they are still necessary to realize the 1996 Act's goal of robust intermodal competition benefiting all Americans.
