    • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Engines and Vehicles
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      305 pages

      EPA and NHTSA, on behalf of the Department of Transportation, are each proposing rules to establish a comprehensive Heavy-Duty National Program that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase fuel efficiency for on-road heavy-duty vehicles, responding to the President's directive on May 21, 2010, to take coordinated steps to produce a new generation of clean vehicles. NHTSA's proposed fuel consumption standards and EPA's proposed carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions standards would be tailored to each of three regulatory categories of heavy-duty vehicles: Combination Tractors; Heavy-Duty Pickup Trucks and Vans; and Vocational Vehicles, as well as gasoline and diesel heavy-duty engines. EPA's proposed hydrofluorocarbon emissions standards would apply to air conditioning systems in tractors, pickup trucks, and vans, and EPA's proposed nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) emissions standards would apply to all heavy-duty engines, pickup trucks, and vans. EPA is also requesting comment on possible alternative CO2-equivalent approaches for model year 2012-14 light-duty vehicles. EPA's proposed greenhouse gas emission standards under the Clean Air Act would begin with model year 2014. NHTSA's proposed fuel consumption standards under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 would be voluntary in model years 2014 and 2015, becoming mandatory with model year 2016 for most regulatory categories. Commercial trailers would not be regulated in this phase of the Heavy- Duty National Program, although there is a discussion of the possibility of future action for trailers.

    • Securities of Nonmember Insured Banks

      Rule
      Length
      5 pages

      The FDIC is revising its securities disclosure regulations applicable to state nonmember banks with securities required to be registered under section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act). The final rule cross references changes in regulations adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) into the provisions of the FDIC's securities regulations. Cross referencing will assure that the FDIC's regulations remain substantially similar to the SEC's regulations, as required by law. The final rule provides general references to SEC regulations by title and part of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), rather than by specific references to sections and subparts of the CFR as are currently provided in part 335. This revision reflects changes to SEC regulations with respect to small business issuers and will provide general guidance to FDIC filers regarding the electronic filing of certain documents. The amendments to part 335 references to SEC regulations will greatly reduce the need for future revisions of part 335, and the FDIC's regulations will be consistent with the SEC regulations through the cross reference stated in 12 CFR 335.101.

      The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the ``DFA''), Public Law 111-203, establishes the Office of Financial Research (the ``Office'') and provides it with the authority to collect data to support the Financial Stability Oversight Council (the ``Council'') and to set standards for reporting such data. To support the Council in identifying connections among market participants and monitoring systemic risk, the Office intends to standardize how parties to financial contracts are identified in the data it collects on behalf of the Council. The Office is issuing a statement of policy regarding its preference to adopt through rulemaking a universal standard for identifying parties to financial contracts that is established and implemented by private industry and other relevant stakeholders through a consensus process. The statement of policy provides guidance on how the Office will evaluate whether a standard is adequate for adoption, including its attributes and method of implementation. The Office seeks comment on this statement of policy, including but not limited to the desired characteristics for a Legal Entity Identifier (``LEI'') and the institutional arrangements for issuing and maintaining identifiers and associated reference data.

      In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and the FRA's Procedures for Considering Environmental Impacts (FRA Environmental Procedures) (64 FR 28545 (May 26, 1999)), the FRA and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) prepared a Tier-1 Environmental Assessment (Tier-1 EA) that evaluates the impacts of a corridor improvements program to the Washington State portion of the Pacific Northwest Rail Corridor (PNWRC Program). This notice advises the public that FRA finds that the corridor improvement program will not have a significant impact on the quality of the human or natural environment and has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) supporting that determination.

      FRA is issuing this notice to advise the public that it intends to grant the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority's (NNEPRA) waiver request from FRA's Buy America requirement, 49 U.S.C. 24405(a), for the purchase and use of 3,340 AREMA specified carbon steel standard 1\1/8\ nominal diameter nuts. FRA intends to grant the waiver because there are no domestic commercially available track nuts that meet the needed specifications and custom made fabricated track nuts that cannot be delivered for 10-16 weeks are not ``reasonably available'' under 49 U.S.C. 24405(a)(2)(B), especially given NNEPRA has mobilized for the track construction and Maine has a short construction season. In addition, NNEPRA used a competitive bidding process to procure the track nuts and no bidders came forward at that time who could comply with Buy America. Finally, FRA published public notice of the NNEPRA waiver request in the Federal Register on August 2, 2010. This notice also failed to identify a reasonably available domestic source. 49 U.S.C. 24405(a)(4) requires that the Secretary provide public notice of a determination that it is necessary to waive the Buy America requirement and provide a maximum fifteen day opportunity for public comment before the waiver becomes final.

Comments are requested concerning: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) ways to further reduce the information collection burden for small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees. The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does not display a valid control number. Dates: Written Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) comments should be submitted on or before December 30, 2010.

Number of Respondents: 1,100 respondents; 2,750 responses. Estimated Time per Response: FCC Form 609-T is estimated at 4 hours per response; FCC Form 611-T is estimated at 6 hours per response. Frequency of Response: Annual and on occasion reporting requirement and third party disclosure requirement. Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 4(i), 308(b), 309(j)(3) and 309(j)(4). Total Annual Burden: 7,288 hours. Total Annual Cost: $1,494,625. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: N/A. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Some respondents may assert that some data and/or agreements that they are filing in response to these information collection requirements include confidential information or trade secrets. The Commission has long established procedures for accepting confidential and market-sensitive documents and information via the Commission's Universal Licensing System (ULS). These long standing procedures will be followed to ensure that no confidential materials or trade secrets are disclosed. Most of the information collected will be made available for public inspection. Applicants may seek confidential treatment pursuant to 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission's rules governing requests to withhold from public inspection information submitted to the Commission. The ULS allows for information to be filed confidentially. Confidentially filed materials will only be accessible to Commission employees who have been issued passwords. Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this expiring information collection (IC) to the OMB during this comment period. The Commission is reporting no change in its burden hour or annual cost estimates. The Commission is seeking OMB approval for an extension (there are no change to the reporting requirements). FCC Form 609-T is used by Designated Entities (DEs) to request prior Commission approval pursuant to Section 1.2114 of the Commission's rules for any reportable eligibility event. The data collected on the form is used by the FCC to determine whether the public interest would be served by the approval of the reportable eligibility event. FCC Form 611-T is used by DE licensees to file an annual report, pursuant to section 1.2110(n) of the Commission's rules, related to eligibility for designated entity benefits. The information collected will be used to ensure that only legitimate small businesses reap the benefits of the Commission's designated entity program. Further, this information will assist the Commission in preventing companies from circumventing the objectives of the designated entity eligibility rules by allowing us to review: (1) The FCC Form 609-T applications seeking approval for ``reportable eligibility events'' and (2) the FCC Form 611-T annual reports to ensure that licensees receiving designated entity benefits are in compliance with the Commission's policies and rules.
