We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440); Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702); Model CL- 600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705); Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900); and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of incorrect deployment of forward and aft flight attendant oxygen masks. This proposed AD would require repacking the flight attendant and lavatory oxygen box assemblies as applicable, replacing the placards, and re- identifying the assemblies. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Based on public comment on the current process for submissions to the Department, Commerce is publishing this interim final rule to grant the public the ability to submit new exclusion requests as soon as possible through the 232 Exclusions Portal while still allowing the opportunity for public comment on the portal.

This AD was prompted by a report that certain main slat track assemblies were manufactured incorrectly and are affected by hydrogen embrittlement. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Agency Information Collection Activities; Renewal of a Currently-Approved Collection: Driver Qualification Files
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for its review and approval and invites public comment. FMCSA requests approval to revise and renew an ICR titled ``Driver Qualification Files,'' OMB Control Number 2126-0004. The ICR estimates the burden commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers and motor carriers incur to comply with the reporting and recordkeeping tasks required for motor carriers to maintain driver qualification (DQ) files. The Agency's regulations pertaining to maintaining DQ files are unchanged and impose no increased information collection (IC) burden on individual drivers and motor carriers. However, the Agency increases its estimate of the total IC burden of these regulations primarily because both the number of CMV drivers and the frequency of their hiring have increased since the Agency's 2016 estimate of this burden.
Request for Information Concerning Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Detention Times During Loading and Unloading
FMCSA requests information on existing or potential sources of data to better understand driver detention times during the loading and unloading of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) and the potential impact of such delays on roadway safety.
