Federal Register Highlights – 5/6/13

May 6, 2013

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 6, 2013:

PROPOSED RULE: This proposed rule would update the payment rates used under the prospective payment system (PPS) for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) for fiscal year (FY) 2014, would revise and rebase the SNF market basket, and would make certain technical and conforming revisions in the regulations text. This proposed rule also includes a proposed policy for reporting the SNF market basket forecast error correction in certain limited circumstances and a proposed new item for the Minimum Data Set (MDS), Version 3.0. To be assured consideration, comments must be received no later than 5 p.m. on July 1, 2013. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference file code CMS–1446–P.)

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Montlake Bridge across the Lake Washington Ship Canal, mile 5.2, at Seattle, WA, and the University Bridge across the Lake Washington Ship Canal, mile 4.3, at Seattle, WA. This deviation is necessary to accommodate the ‘‘Beat the Bridge’’ foot race. This deviation allows the bridges to remain in the closed position to allow safe movement of event participants. This deviation is effective from 7:30 a.m. on May 19, 2013 to 9:30 a.m. on May 19, 2013.

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. The deviation is necessary to facilitate electrical work on the George P. Coleman Memorial Swing Bridge. This deviation allows the drawbridge to remain in the closed to navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on July 8, 2013 to 5 p.m. on July 12, 2013.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation on the waters of Bahia de Boqueron in Boqueron, PR during the 50 Aniversario Balneario de Boqueron, a high speed boat race. The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 5, 2013. Approximately 40 high-speed power boats will be participating in the races. It is anticipated that 5 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 three areas: 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; a buffer zone around the race area, 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 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. This rule is effective on May 5, 2013.

RULE: We are revising an airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Models HK 36 R, HK 36 TS, and HK 36 TTS powered gliders. AD 2013–04–08 required replacement of each elevator bell crank assembly and elevator bell crank mount. This AD retains the actions of AD 2013–04–08 but decreases gliders in the Applicability by removing the Model H–36 from the Applicability. This AD was prompted by reports of installation of an unsuitable self-locking nut on the bell crank of the elevator push rod that can cause failure of the elevator, resulting in loss of control. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products. This final rule is effective May 6, 2013.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737–600, –700, –700C, –800, –900, and –900ER series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of damaged fire seals on the forward edge of the thrust reverser. This AD requires inspecting to detect damage to the upper fire seals on the forward edge of the thrust reverser, where the fire seal contacts the 12-o’clock engine strut, and for correct stiffness and vent holes, and doing corrective actions if necessary; and installing a bracket for the fire seal. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damage to the fire seals, which could allow airflow into the engine fire zone and could degrade the ability to extinguish an engine fire. This AD is effective June 10, 2013.
