April 2, 2013

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for April 2, 2013:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Third Street Drawbridge across the China Basin, mile 0.0, at San Francisco, CA. The deviation is necessary to allow the public to cross the bridge to participate in the scheduled CycleSF, a community event. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. on April 28, 2013.

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard proposes to establish a special local regulation on the waters of Charlotte Amalie Harbor in St Thomas, USVI during the St. Thomas Carnival Watersport Activities, a high speed boat race. The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 21, 2013. Approximately 40 high-speed power boats will be participating in the races and it is anticipated that 50 spectator crafts will be present during the races. The special local regulation is necessary for the safety of race participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public during the event. The special local regulation will establish the following four areas: (1) A high speed boat race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high-speed boat races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; (2) a jet ski race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the jet ski races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; (3) a buffer zone around the race areas, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels enforcing the buffer zone or authorized participants transiting to their authorized the race area, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; and (4) a spectator area, where all vessels are prohibited from anchoring and from traveling in excess of wake speed, unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative. Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before April 10, 2013. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number USCG–2013–0145.)

PROPOSED RULE: The EPA is proposing to amend the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule and to clarify or change specific provisions. Particularly, the EPA is proposing to amend a table in the General Provisions, to reflect revised global warming potentials of some greenhouse gases that have been published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and to add global warming potentials for certain fluorinated greenhouse gases not currently listed in the table. This action also proposes confidentiality determinations for the reporting of new or substantially revised (i.e., requiring additional or different data to be reported) data elements contained in these proposed amendments to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule. Comments must be received on or before May 17, 2013. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number EPA–HQ–OAR–2012–0934.)

PROPOSED RULE: This document contains proposed regulations on the application of the $500,000 deduction limitation for remuneration provided by certain health insurance providers under section 162(m)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code (Code).
