rulemaking action.
Regulatory Findings
This AD will not have federalism
implications under Executive Order
13132. This AD will not have a
substantial direct effect on the States, on

responsibilities among the various
levels of government.
For the reasons discussed above, I
certify that this AD:

The Amendment
Accordingly, under the authority
delegated to me by the Administrator,
the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as
follows:
PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS
DIRECTIVES
1. The authority citation for part 39
continues to read as follows:
Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.
§ 39.13 [Amended]
2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding
the following new airworthiness
directive:
2021–21–10 Pacific Aerospace Limited:
Amendment 39–21770; Docket No.
FAA–2021–0603; Project Identifier
2019–CE–006–AD.
(a) Effective Date
This airworthiness directive (AD) is
effective December 10, 2021.
(b) Affected ADs
None.
(c) Applicability
This AD applies to Pacific Aerospace
Limited Model 750XL airplanes, serial

and 8001, certificated in any category.
(d) Subject
Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)
Code 2800, Aircraft Fuel System.
(e) Unsafe Condition
This AD was prompted by mandatory
continuing airworthiness information (MCAI)
originated by an aviation authority of another
country to identify and correct an unsafe
condition on an aviation product. The MCAI
describes the unsafe condition as chafing
damage in the port wing skin caused by the
fuel system finger filters. The FAA is issuing
this AD to detect and correct chafing in the
left hand (LH) wing leading edge tank skin,
which if not detected and corrected, could
result in a port wing fuel leak and lead to
engine failure or fire.
(f) Compliance
Comply with this AD within the
compliance times specified, unless already
done.
(g) Required Actions
Within 165 hours time-in-service after the
effective date of this AD, modify the LH
inspection panel assembly and inspect the
LH wing and fuel tank for chafing, and then,
before further flight, repair any chafing and
install the panels in accordance with the
Accomplishment Instructions in Pacific

22 CFR Part 41
[Public Notice: 11462]
RIN 1400–AF34
Visas: Nonimmigrant Visas
AGENCY
: Department of State.
ACTION
: Final rule.
SUMMARY
: The Department of State
(Department) is amending its regulation
governing nonimmigrant visas by
amending its rules to remove references
to the North American Free Trade
Agreement (NAFTA) and replace them
with references to the United States-
Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
DATES
: This final rule is effective on
December 6, 2021.

of State, 600 19th St. NW, Washington,
DC 20006, (202) 485–7586.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
What changes is the Department
making to 22 CFR 41.12 and 41.59?
The Department is amending 22 CFR
41.12 and 41.59 to remove references to
NAFTA and replace them with
references to the USMCA, which
entered into force on July 1, 2020, and
replaced NAFTA.

61065
Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 212 / Friday, November 5, 2021 / Rules and Regulations
date 30 days after publication in the
Federal Register, pursuant to the
Administrative Procedure Act (‘‘APA’’),
5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A) and (d)(2), because
it re-states existing agency procedure or
practice. As noted in the Preamble, the
USMCA has replaced NAFTA, and visas
previously issued to NAFTA
professionals are now issued to USMCA
professionals. Congress has amended 8
U.S.C. 1184(e) to replace references to
NAFTA with references to the USMCA.
The purpose of this rule is to make
technical corrections to the regulatory
text to replace references to NAFTA
with references to USMCA, and
consequently, it is not subject to the
notice and comment rulemaking
procedures set forth in 5 U.S.C. 553.
Regulatory Flexibility Act/Executive
Order 13272: Small Business
Because this final rule is exempt from
notice and comment rulemaking under
5 U.S.C. 553, it is exempt from the
regulatory flexibility analysis
requirements set forth by the Regulatory
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.
Unfunded Mandates Act of 1995
This rule will not result in the
expenditure by State, local, and tribal
governments, in the aggregate, or by the
private sector, of $100 million or more
in any year and it will not significantly
or uniquely affect small governments.
Therefore, no actions were deemed
necessary under the provisions of the
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of
1995.
Congressional Review Act of 1996
This rule is not a major rule as
defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2), for purposes
of congressional review of agency
rulemaking. The Department does not
believe that this rule will result in an
annual effect on the economy of $100
million or more; a major increase in
costs or prices; or adverse effects on
competition, employment, investment,
productivity, innovation, or the ability
of U.S.-based companies to compete
with foreign-based companies in
domestic and import markets.
Executive Orders 12866, and 13563:
Reducing Regulation and Controlling
Regulatory Cost
The Department has reviewed this
rule to ensure its consistency with the
regulatory philosophy and principles set
forth in Executive Orders 12866 and
13563, and has determined that the
benefits of this regulation, i.e., updating
these rules to reflect the current
agreement, outweigh any cost imposed
by this rulemaking, which the
Department assesses to be minimal.
Executive Orders 12372 and 13132:
Federalism
While the USMCA itself may have an
effect on States, this regulation will not
have substantial direct effects on the
States, on the relationship between the
national government and the States, or
the distribution of power and
responsibilities among the various
levels of government. Therefore, this
rule will not have federalism
implications warranting the application
of Executive Orders 12372 and 13132.
Executive Order 13175: Consultation
and Coordination With Indian Tribal
Governments
The Department has determined that
this rulemaking will not have tribal
implications, will not impose
substantial direct compliance costs on
Indian tribal governments, and will not
preempt tribal law. Accordingly, the
requirements of section 5 of Executive
Order 13175 do not apply to this
rulemaking.
Paperwork Reduction Act
This rule does not impose or revise
any reporting or record-keeping
requirements under the provisions of
the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C.
Chapter 35.
List of Subjects in 22 CFR Part 41
Aliens, Passports and visas.
Accordingly, under the authority 8
U.S.C. 1104 and 22 U.S.C. 2651(a), 22
CFR part 41 is amended as follows:
PART 41—VISAS: DOCUMENTATION
OF NONIMMIGRANTS UNDER THE
IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY
ACT, AS AMENDED
1. The authority citation for part 41
continues to read as follows:
Authority: 8 U.S.C. 1101; 1102; 1104;
1182; 1184; 1185 note (section 7209 of Pub.
L. 108–458, as amended by section 546 of
Pub. L. 109–295); 1323; 1361; 2651a.
2. Amend § 41.12 by revising the
introductory text and revising the
entries for ‘‘TD’’ and ‘‘TN’’ in the table
to read as follows:
§ 41.12 Classification symbols.
A visa issued to a nonimmigrant alien
within one of the classes described in
this section shall bear an appropriate
visa symbol to show the classification of
the alien. The symbol shall be inserted
in the space provided on the visa. The
following visa symbols shall be used:
Symbol Class Section of
law
*****
TN ...... USMCA Professional .............. 214(e)(1)
TD ...... Spouse or Child of a USMCA
Professional. 214(e)(1)
*****
3. Revise § 41.59 to read as follows:
§ 41.59 Professionals under the United
States-Mexico-Canada Agreement
(USMCA).
(a) Requirements for classification as
a USMCA professional. An alien shall
be classifiable under the provisions of
INA 214(e) if:
(1) The consular officer is satisfied
that the alien qualifies under the
provisions of that section; and
(2) The alien shall have presented to
the consular officer sufficient evidence
of an offer of employment in the United
States requiring employment of a person
in a professional capacity consistent
with Section D and Appendix 2 of
Annex 16–A of Chapter 16 of the
USMCA and sufficient evidence that the
alien possesses the credentials of that
profession as listed in said appendix; or
(3) The alien is the spouse or child of
an alien so classified in accordance with
paragraph (a)(2) of this section and is
accompanying or following to join the
principal alien.
(b) Visa validity. The period of
validity of a visa issued pursuant to
paragraph (a) of this section may not
exceed the period established on a
reciprocal basis.
(c) Temporary entry. Temporary entry
means an entry into the United States
without the intent to establish
permanent residence. The alien must
satisfy the consular officer that the
proposed stay is temporary. A
temporary period has a reasonable,
finite end that does not equate to
permanent residence. The
circumstances surrounding an
application should reasonably and
convincingly indicate that the alien’s
temporary work assignment in the
United States will end predictably and
that the alien will depart upon
completion of the assignment.
(d) Labor disputes. Citizens of Canada
or Mexico shall not be entitled to
classification under this section if the
Secretary of Homeland Security and the
Secretary of Labor have certified that:
(1) There is in progress a strike or
lockout in the course of a labor dispute
in the occupational classification at the
place or intended place of employment;
and
(2) The alien has failed to establish
that the alien’s entry will not affect

II. Background Information and
Regulatory History
The Coast Guard is issuing this final
rule without prior notice and
opportunity to comment pursuant to
authority under section 4(a) of the
Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5
U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision
authorizes an agency to issue a rule
without prior notice and opportunity to
comment when the agency for good
cause finds that those procedures are
‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary
to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C.
553(b), the Coast Guard finds that good
cause exists for not publishing a notice
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with
respect to this rule because the
waterway at mile 30.7 was designated as
an Advance Approved Waterway in
June 2021. The Seaboard System
Railroad Bridge, mile 30.7, has not had
a request to open in the past 40 years,
is being rehabilitated and converted to
a fixed bridge. The Highway Bridge,
mile 37.8, was removed from the
waterway. Therefore, regulation 33 CFR
117.367 is no longer applicable and
shall be removed from publication. It is
unnecessary to publish an NPRM
because this regulatory action does not
purport to place any restrictions on
mariners but rather removes a
restriction that has no further use or
value.
Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast
Guard finds that good cause exists for
making this rule effective in less than 30
days after publication in the Federal
Register. The waterway is designated as
Advance Approved, the Highway Bridge
was removed from the waterway and the
Seaboard System Railroad Bridge is
