This deviation is necessary to accommodate the Total Health Events Heroes Half Marathon.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the draw of the US 17/George P. Coleman Memorial Swing Bridge across the York River, at mile 7.0, between Gloucester Point and Yorktown, VA. This deviation is necessary to facilitate maintenance on the George P. Coleman Memorial Swing Bridge. This temporary deviation allows the drawbridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position on specific dates and times. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on April 21, 2013, until 5 p.m. April 28, 2013.

PROPOSED RULE: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (hereinafter the Service or we) proposes to establish annual hunting regulations for certain migratory game birds for the 2013–14 hunting season. We annually prescribe outside limits (frameworks) within which States may select hunting seasons. This proposed rule provides the regulatory schedule, describes the proposed regulatory alternatives for the 2013–14 duck hunting seasons, requests proposals from Indian tribes that wish to establish special migratory game bird hunting regulations on Federal Indian reservations and ceded lands, and requests proposals for the 2015 spring and summer migratory bird subsistence season in Alaska. Migratory game bird hunting seasons provide opportunities for recreation and sustenance; aid Federal, State, and tribal governments in the management of migratory game birds; and permit harvests at levels compatible with migratory game bird population status and habitat conditions. You must submit comments on the proposed regulatory alternatives for the 2013–14 duck hunting seasons on or before June 22, 2013. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number FWS–HQ–MB–2013–0057.)
