Unlicensed Use of the 6 GHz Band
Document Number: 2020-11320
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-05-28
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission proposes to expand unlicensed use of the 5.925-7.125 GHz band (6 GHz band) while protecting the incumbent licensed services that operate in this spectrum. The proposed rules would allow a new class of unlicensed devices to operate throughout the entire 6 GHz band at power levels that are low enough to prevent the occurrence of harmful interference to licensed services. The Commission seeks comment on permitting unlicensed access points that are restricted to indoor operation in the 6 GHz band to operate at a power spectral density of 8 dBm/MHz with a maximum permissible equivalent isotropically radiated power (EIRP) of 33 dBm, an increase of 3 dB over the current rules. The Commission also seeks comment on permitting access points that operate under the control of an automated frequency coordination (AFC) system in the 5.925-6.425 GHz and 5.512- 6.875 GHz sub-bands to be used for mobile applications. In addition, the document seeks comment on allowing access points that operate under AFC control to transmit with more power than the 36 dBm EIRP currently permitted.

Parent Companies of Industrial Banks and Industrial Loan Companies; Extension of Comment Period
Document Number: 2020-11446
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-05-27
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
On March 31, 2020, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation published in the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) entitled ``Parent Companies of Industrial Banks and Industrial Loan Companies'' proposing a rule that would require certain conditions and commitments for each deposit insurance application approval, non- objection to a change in control notice, and merger application approval that would result in an insured industrial bank or industrial loan company becoming, after the effective date of any final rule, a subsidiary of a company that is not subject to consolidated supervision by the Federal Reserve Board. The proposed rule also would require that before any industrial bank or industrial loan company may become a subsidiary of a company that is not subject to consolidated supervision by the Federal Reserve Board, such company and the industrial bank or industrial loan company must enter into one or more written agreements with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The NPR provided for a 60-day comment period, which would have closed on June 1, 2020. The FDIC has determined that an extension of the comment period until July 1, 2020, is appropriate. This action will allow interested parties additional time to analyze the proposal and prepare comments.
Person in Charge of Fuel Transfers
Document Number: 2020-11366
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-05-27

The Coast Guard is amending the requirements regulating personnel permitted to serve as a person in charge (PIC) of fuel oil transfers on an inspected vessel by adding the option of using a letter of designation (LOD) in lieu of a Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC) with a Tankerman-PIC endorsement. Obtaining an MMC with a Tankerman-PIC endorsement is now optional for PICs of fuel oil transfers on inspected vessels. This change is not limited to towing vessels, but one effect of this rule is that a PIC currently using the LOD option on an uninspected towing vessel may continue to do so once the vessel receives its Certificate of Inspection.

Document Number: 2020-11322
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-05-27
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS proposes to implement annual harvest specifications and management measures for the northern subpopulation of Pacific sardine (hereafter, Pacific sardine), for the fishing year from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021. The proposed action would prohibit most directed commercial fishing for Pacific sardine off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California. Pacific sardine harvest would be allowed only in the live bait fishery, minor directed fisheries, as incidental catch in other fisheries, or as authorized under exempted fishing permits. The incidental harvest of Pacific sardine would be limited to 20 percent by weight of all fish per trip when caught with other stocks managed under the Coastal Pelagic Species Fishery Management Plan or up to 2 metric tons per trip when caught with non-Coastal Pelagic Species stocks. The proposed annual catch limit for the 2020-2021 Pacific sardine fishing year is 4,288 metric tons. This proposed rule is intended to conserve and manage the Pacific sardine stock off the U.S. West Coast.

Default Electronic Disclosure by Employee Pension Benefit Plans Under ERISA
Document Number: 2020-10951
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-05-27
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor
The Department of Labor is adopting in this document a new, additional safe harbor for employee benefit plan administrators to use electronic media, as a default, to furnish information to participants and beneficiaries of plans subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). The rule allows plan administrators who satisfy specified conditions to provide participants and beneficiaries with a notice that certain disclosures will be made available on a website, or to furnish disclosures via email. Individuals who prefer to receive disclosures on paper can request paper copies of disclosures and opt out of electronic delivery entirely. The Department expects the rule to enhance the effectiveness of ERISA disclosures and significantly reduce the costs and burden associated with furnishing many of the recurring and most costly disclosures. In addition to benefiting workers, this rule will immediately assist employers and the retirement plan industry as they face a number of economic challenges due to the COVID-19 emergency, including logistical and other impediments to compliance with ERISA's disclosure requirements.

Additionally, the Office proposes changes to the rules to conform to the current standard practice of providing sur-replies to principal briefs and providing that a patent owner response and reply may respond to a decision on institution. The Office further proposes a change to eliminate the presumption that a genuine issue of material fact created by the patent owner's testimonial evidence filed with a preliminary response will be viewed in the light most favorable to the petitioner for purposes of deciding whether to institute a review.

Unlicensed Use of the 6 GHz Band
Document Number: 2020-11236
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-05-26
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission adopts rules designed to optimize unlicensed access by authorizing two types of unlicensed operations in the 6 GHz band while also protecting incumbent services so that they continue to thrive in the band. The Commission is authorizing unlicensed standard-power access points that will operate under the control of an automated frequency coordination system in portions of the 6 GHz band. The Commission is also opening the entire 6 GHz band for unlicensed indoor low power access points. In addition, the Commission will permit unlicensed client devices to communicate with both the standard-power and low-power access points. These rules will provide opportunities for unlicensed operations to use up to 320- megahertz channels to expand capacity and increase performance. This forward-looking action anticipates the next generation of the unlicensed devices and advances the U.S.'s role as an innovator and global spectrum policy leader.
