Federal Register Highlights – 8/12/13

August 12, 2013

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 12, 2013;

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard will enforce a safety zone in the Captain of the Port Northern New England Zone on the specified date and time. This action is necessary to ensure the safety of participants, vessels and spectators from hazards associated with the swim event. During the enforcement period, no person or vessel may enter the safety zone without permission of the Captain of the Port. The regulation for the Sprucewold Cabbage Island Swim safety zone described in 33 CFR 165.171 will be enforced on August 18, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

RULE: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for all BRP-Powertrain GmbH & Co KG Rotax model 912 F2; 912 F3; 912 F4; 912 S2; 912 S3; 912 S4; 914 F2; 914 F3; and 914 F4 reciprocating engines. That AD required a one-time visual inspection for excessive oil or carbon deposits on the cylinder No. 2 and No. 3 (2⁄3) spark plug center and grounding electrodes, and if found, replacement of the cylinder head before further flight. This AD was prompted by a report that additional engine cylinder heads are likely to be affected. We are issuing this AD to prevent excessive oil consumption, which could result in an in-flight engine shutdown, forced landing, and damage to the airplane. This AD is effective August 27, 2013.

PROPOSED RULE: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing to amend its regulations pertaining to the administration of Federal coal leases and logical mining units (LMUs). The proposed rule would implement Title IV, Subtitle D of the Energy Policy Act of 2005; clarify that a royalty rate of 12 1⁄2 percent will be assessed on all Federal coal except coal that is mined from underground mines; withdraw the Logical Mining Unit Application and Processing Guidelines (LMU Guidelines); promulgate portions of the LMU Guidelines as regulations; establish new processing fees; and make technical and editorial corrections to the regulations. Send your comments on this proposed rule to the BLM on or before October 11, 2013. The BLM is not obligated to consider any comments received after the above date in making its decision on the final rule. (To submit comments, visit, reference RIN 1004–AD93.)

PROPOSED RULE: ONRR proposes new regulations to implement the provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) governing the payment of advance royalty on coal resources produced from Federal leases. The EPAct provisions amend the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920 (MLA). ONRR also proposes to add information collection requirements that are applicable to all solid minerals leases and also are necessary to implement the EPAct Federal coal advance royalty provisions. Comments must be submitted on or before October 11, 2013. (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number ONRR–2012–0001.)
