Index of Administrator's Decisions and Orders in Civil Penalty 
Actions; Publication

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of publication.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice constitutes the required quarterly publication of 
an index of the Administrator's decisions and orders in civil penalty 
cases. The FAA is publishing an index by order number, an index by 
subject matter, and case digests that contain identifying information 
about the final decisions and orders issued by the Administrator. 
Publication of these indexes and digests is intended to increase the 
public's awareness of the Administrator's decisions and orders. Also, 
the publication of these indexes and digests should assist litigants 
and practitioners in their research and review of decisions and orders 
that may have precedential value in a particular civil penalty action. 
Publication of the index by order number, as supplemented by the index 
by subject matter, ensures that the agency is in compliance with 
statutory indexing requirements.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
James S. Dillman, Assistant Chief Counsel for Litigation (AGC-400), 
Federal Aviation Administration, 400 7th Street, SW., Suite PL200-A, 
Washington, DC 20590: telephone (202) 366-4118.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Administrative Procedure Act requires 
Federal agencies to maintain and make available for public inspection 
and copying current indexes containing identifying information 
regarding materials required to be made available or published. 5 
U.S.C. 552(a)(2). In a notice issued on July 11, 1990, and published in 
the Federal Register (55 FR 29148; July 17, 1990), the FAA announced 
the public availability of several indexes and summaries that provide 
identifying information about the decisions and orders issued by the 
Administrator under the FAA's civil penalty assessment authority and 
the rules of practice governing hearings and appeals of civil penalty 
actions. 14 CFR Part 13, Subpart G.
    The FAA maintains an index of the Administrator's decisions and 
orders in civil penalty actions organized by order number and 
containing identifying information about each decision or order. The 
FAA also maintains a subject-matter index, and digests organized by 
order number.
    In a notice issued on October 26, 1990, the FAA published these 
indexes and digests for all decisions and orders issued by the 
Administrator through September 30, 1990. 55 FR 45984; October 31, 
1990. The FAA announced in that notice that it would publish 
supplements to these indexes and digests on a quarterly basis (i.e., in 
January, April, July, and October of each year). The FAA announced 
further in that notice that only the subject-matter index would be 
published cumulatively, and that both the order number index and the 
digests would be non-cumulative. Since that first index was issued on 
October 26, 1990, the FAA has issued supplementary notices containing 
the quarterly indexes of the Administrator's civil penalty decisions.
    The indexes of the Administrator's decisions and orders have been 
published as follows:

    In the notice published on January 19, 1993, the Administrator 
announced that for the convenience of the users of these indexes, the 
order number index published at the end of the year would reflect all 
of the civil penalty decisions for that year. 58 FR 5044; 1/19/93. The 
order number indexes for the first, second, and third quarters would be 
non-cumulative.
    The Administrator's final decisions and orders, indexes, and 
digests are available for public inspection and copying at all FAA 
legal offices. (The addresses of the FAA legal offices are listed at 
the end of this notice.)
    Also, the Administrator's decisions and orders have been published
