Federal Register Highlights – 2/14/13

February 14, 2013

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for February 14, 2013:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway Company swing span bridge across Bayou Boeuf, mile 10.2, at Amelia, St. Mary Parish, Louisiana. The deviation is necessary to complete scheduled repairs necessitated by a bridge allision. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position for sixteen consecutive hours. This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. through 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 14, 2013.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway Company swing span bridge across Charenton Canal, mile 0.4, at Baldwin, St. Mary Parish, Louisiana. The deviation is necessary to complete scheduled repairs for the continued safe operation of the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position for sixteen consecutive hours. This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. through 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 28, 2013.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard will enforce the 2013 California Ironman Triathlon Special Local Regulation located in Oceanside Harbor in Oceanside, California from 6:40 a.m. through 9:30 a.m. on March 30, 2013. This action is necessary to provide to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, sponsor vessels of the event, and general users of the waterway. During the enforcement period, no spectators shall anchor, block, loiter in, or impede the transit of participants or official patrol vessels in the regulated area during the effective dates and times, unless cleared for such entry by Coast Guard Patrol Commander or through an official supporting vessel. The regulations in 33 CFR 100.1101 will be enforced from 6:40 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on March 30, 2013.

PROPOSED RULE: This rule proposes to change TRICARE’s current regulatory provision for hospital claims priced under the DRG-based payment system. Claims are currently priced by using the rates and weights that are in effect on a beneficiary’s date of admission. This rule proposes to change that provision to price such claims by using the rates and weights that are in effect on a beneficiary’s date of discharge. Written comments received at the address indicated below by April 15, 2013 will be accepted. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference RIN 0720–AB58.)

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) BR700–710A1–10 and BR700–710A2–20 turbofan engines, and certain BR700–710C4–11 model engines. This AD was prompted by RRD performing an evaluation that determined that certain high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 1 and stage 2 discs from a specific supplier may contain steel inclusions that may cause the discs to fail before they reach their current life limits. This AD requires reducing the life limits for certain HPT stage 1 and stage 2 discs. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the HPT stage 1 and stage 2 discs, which could result in uncontained failure of the engine and damage to the airplane. This AD becomes effective March 21, 2013.

RULE: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 707 airplanes, and Model 720 and 720B series airplanes. That AD currently requires replacing wiring for the fuel boost pumps and override pumps with new wiring, installing Teflon sleeving on the wiring, and doing associated actions; and doing repetitive inspections to detect damage of the wiring or evidence of a fuel leak. This new AD reduces the repetitive inspection interval. This AD was prompted by a determination that an inspection interval must be reduced. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damaged wiring for the fuel boost pumps and override pumps, which could cause electrical arcing that could puncture the conduit containing the wire, and result in a fuel tank explosion or a fire adjacent to the fuel tank. This AD is effective March 21, 2013.

PROPOSED RULE: The Commission is proposing amendments to the premerger notification rules (‘‘the Rules’’) to provide a framework for the withdrawal of a premerger notification filing under the Hart Scott Rodino Act (‘‘the Act’’ or ‘‘HSR’’). The Act and Rules require the parties to certain mergers and acquisitions to file reports with the Federal Trade Commission (‘‘the Commission’’) and the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice (‘‘the Assistant Attorney General’’) (collectively, ‘‘the Agencies’’) and to wait a specified period of time before consummating such transactions. The reporting and waiting period requirements are intended to enable these enforcement agencies to determine whether a proposed merger or acquisition may violate the antitrust laws if consummated and, when appropriate, to seek a preliminary injunction in federal court to prevent consummation. This proposed rulemaking sets forth the procedure for voluntarily withdrawing an HSR filing, establishes when an HSR filing will be automatically withdrawn after an electronically submitted filing publicly announcing the termination of a transaction is made with the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and rules promulgated under that act, and sets forth the procedure for resubmitting a filing after a withdrawal with no additional filing fee. Comments must be received on or before April 15, 2013. (To submit comments, Write ‘‘HSR Filing Withdrawals Rulemaking, Project No. P859910,’’ on your comment, and file your comment online at https://ftcpublic.commentworks.com/ftc/hsrruleamendnprm, by following the instructions on the web-based form.)

TEMPORARY RULE: This temporary rule increases the possession limits for Georges Bank cod, Gulf of Maine cod, and Southern New England/Mid-Atlantic yellowtail flounder for Northeast multispecies common pool vessels for the remainder of the 2012 fishing year. This rule also decreases the trip limits for white hake and pollock. This is intended to facilitate the harvest of Georges Bank cod, Gulf of Maine cod, and Southern New England/Mid-Atlantic yellowtail flounder to allow the total catch of these stocks to approach their pertinent common pool sub-annual catch limits sub-annual catch limits and prevent the overharvest of the white hake and pollock sub-annual catch limits. Effective February 11, 2013, through April 30, 2013.
