Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracking in certain flanges, and the adjacent web, of the wing outboard flap track at certain positions. This proposed AD would require an inspection to determine the part number of the wing outboard flap track assembly; repetitive inspections of each affected wing outboard flap track for discrepancies, and applicable on-condition actions; and repetitive overhaul of each wing outboard flap track. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, and Removal of Class E Airspace; Lompoc, CA
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and remove Class E airspace designated as an extension at Vandenberg Air Force Base (AFB), Lompoc, CA. This action also proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Lompoc Airport, Lompoc, CA, by enlarging the airspace and removing the part- time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) status. This action would also amend the geographic coordinates of the airports to match the FAA's aeronautical database. This action is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports. An editorial change would be made removing the city associated with the airport name in the airspace designator for Vandenberg AFB, as well as removing exclusionary language from the description. Additionally, this action would replace the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement''.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Kamuela, HI
This action proposes to amend Class E surface area airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Waimea-Kohala Airport, Kamuela, HI. The part-time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) status would be removed from Class E surface area airspace, references to the Kamuela VOR/DME would be removed from all associated Class E airspace areas, and airspace boundaries would be modified to only that area necessary to contain instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Airspace redesign is necessary as the FAA transitions from ground-based to satellite-based navigation for the safety and management of the national airspace system. Also, an editorial change would be made removing the airport name and replacing it with the city in the airspace designators for the above airspace areas.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Hanford, CA
This action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hanford Municipal Airport, Hanford, CA, by enlarging the airspace to accommodate area navigation (RNAV) procedures at the airport, removing the Visalia VHF omnidirectional range/distance measuring equipment (VOR/DME) from the airspace description, and amending the geographic coordinates of the airport. This action also removes Blair Airport from the airport description as the airport no longer exists. This action is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Aurora, OR
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Aurora State Airport, Aurora, OR. After a biennial review the FAA found modification necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Additionally, an editorial change would be made removing the city associated with the airport name in the airspace designations. Also, this proposal would make an editorial change to the Class D airspace legal description replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement.
Proposed Revocation of Class E Airspace; Sunol, CA
This action proposes to remove Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Sunol, CA. This airspace is wholly contained within the Sacramento en route airspace area and duplication is not necessary.
Proposed Removal of Class E Airspace; Mercury, NV
This action proposes to remove Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Desert Rock Airport, Mercury, NV. This airspace is not required, as there are no instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Establishment of Class E Airspace, Rangely, CO
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Rangely Airport, Rangely, CO, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) procedures at the airport. This action ensures the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
Streamlining the Office of Inspector General's Freedom of Information Act Regulations and Implementing the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016
This final rule amends the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regulations for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Inspector General (OIG) to align with HUD's FOIA regulations, to implement the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, and to explain current OIG policies and practices with respect to FOIA.
Human Subject Protection; Acceptance of Data From Clinical Investigations for Medical Devices
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is amending its regulations on acceptance of data from clinical investigations for medical devices. We are requiring that data submitted from clinical investigations conducted outside the United States intended to support an investigational device exemption (IDE) application, a premarket notification (510(k)) submission, a request for De Novo classification, a premarket approval (PMA) application, a product development protocol (PDP) application, or a humanitarian device exemption (HDE) application be from investigations conducted in accordance with good clinical practice (GCP), which includes obtaining and documenting the review and approval of the clinical investigation by an independent ethics committee (IEC) and obtaining and documenting freely given informed consent of subjects, which includes individuals whose specimens are used in investigations of medical devices. The final rule updates the criteria for FDA acceptance of data from clinical investigations conducted outside the United States to help ensure the quality and integrity of data obtained from these investigations and the protection of human subjects. As part of this final rule, we are also amending the IDE, 510(k), and HDE regulations to address the requirements for FDA acceptance of data from clinical investigations conducted inside the United States. The final rule provides consistency in FDA requirements for acceptance of data from clinical investigations, whatever the application or submission type.
Short-Term, Limited-Duration Insurance
This rule contains proposals amending the definition of short- term, limited-duration insurance for purposes of its exclusion from the definition of individual health insurance coverage. This action is being taken to lengthen the maximum period of short-term, limited- duration insurance, which will provide more affordable consumer choice for health coverage.
Revise and Streamline VA Acquisition Regulation To Adhere to Federal Acquisition Regulation Principles (VAAR Case 2014-V002)
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) adopts as final the proposed amendments to VA regulations. This rulemaking prescribes five new Economic Price Adjustment clauses for firm-fixed-price contracts, identifies VA's task-order and delivery-order ombudsman, clarifies the nature and use of consignment agreements, adds policy coverage on bond premium adjustments and insurance under fixed-price contracts, and provides for indemnification of contractors for medical research or development contracts. This document adopts the proposed rule published on March 13, 2017, as a final rule with five technical non-substantive changes.
Margin and Capital Requirements for Covered Swap Entities; Proposed Rule
The Board, OCC, FDIC, FCA, and FHFA (each an Agency and, collectively, the Agencies) are seeking comment on proposed amendments to the minimum margin requirements for registered swap dealers, major swap participants, security-based swap dealers, and major security- based swap participants for which one of the Agencies is the prudential regulator (Swap Margin Rule). The Agencies are proposing these amendments in light of the rules recently adopted by the Board, the OCC, and the FDIC that impose restrictions on certain non-cleared swaps and non-cleared security-based swaps and other financial contracts (Covered QFCs) (the QFC Rules). The QFC Rules amend the definition of ``Qualifying Master Netting Agreement'' in the Federal banking agencies' regulatory capital and liquidity rules to ensure that a Covered QFC is not prevented from being part of a Qualifying Master Netting Agreement solely because the Covered QFC conforms to the new requirements in the QFC Rules. The FCA also plans to propose amendments to its capital rules, including potential revisions to its regulatory definition of ``Qualifying Master Netter Agreement,'' which is expected to be identical to the definition used in the Federal banking agencies' regulatory capital and liquidity rules. The Agencies are proposing to amend the definition of ``Eligible Master Netting Agreement'' in the Swap Margin Rule so that it remains harmonized with the amended definition of ``Qualifying Master Netting Agreement'' in the Federal banking agencies' regulatory capital and liquidity rules, and amendments to the capital rules that the FCA separately plans to propose. This proposed rule would also ensure that netting agreements of firms subject to the Swap Margin Rule are not excluded from the definition of ``Eligible Master Netting Agreement'' based solely on their compliance with the QFC Rules. The Agencies are also proposing that any legacy non-cleared swap or non-cleared security-based swap (i.e., a non-cleared swap or non-cleared security- based swap entered into before the applicable compliance date) that is not subject to the margin requirements of the Swap Margin Rule would not become subject to the provisions of the Swap Margin Rule if the non-cleared swap or non-cleared security-based swap is amended solely to comply with the requirements of the QFC Rules.
Requirements for Licensees To Overcome a CMRS Presumption
In this document, the Federal Communications Commission adopts rules to harmonize and streamline the Commission's regulations regarding the classification of commercial and private mobile radio services, primarily by removing provisions in the Commission's rules that were outdated or unnecessary. The rules in question list various services or subservices that the Commission had classified as ``mobile services'' and determined to be ``commercial mobile radio services'' (or ``CMRS'') (in accordance with the definitions set forth in the Communications Act). These rules also establish in certain instances a presumption that some services are private mobile radio services (or ``PMRS''), and set out a process by which that presumption can be rebutted. This action also removes any presumptions about whether mobile services are regulated as commercial or private, and instead allows licensees to rely on the statutory definitions of those terms to identify the nature and regulatory treatment of their mobile services, consistent with applicable service rules.
Financial Responsibility Requirements Under CERCLA Section 108(b) for Classes of Facilities in the Hardrock Mining Industry

Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance; Stevens Point Municipal Airport Stevens Point, WI
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 47.634 acres known as Parcels 55 and 57 of airport land from aeronautical use to non- aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at Stevens Point Municipal Airport, Stevens Point, WI. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. The 47.634 acres of airport property stretches along the entire North East quadrant of the airport property. Starting at the far north edge where the property meets State Highway 66, around to the northeast corner of the Runway 30 Runway Protection Zone. This property does not currently serve an aeronautical purpose. Portions of this property are currently not being used for any purpose and portions along the East edge are being used as an access road for the Izaak Walton League and as part of the Green Circle Trail system. If the airport receives permission from the FAA to release the property from aeronautical obligations, it intends on transferring this property to the community for continued use. The continued use of the land as access and trail will only occur once the relocation of the access and recreational trail has happened.
