Federal Register Highlights – 12/17/13

December 17, 2013

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for December 17, 2013:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a temporary deviation from the regulations governing the operation of the Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corporation (PATH), National Railroad Passenger Corporation (AMTRAK) and New Jersey Transit Rail Operation (NJTRO) Railroad Bridges. This deviation allows the PATH Bridge, mile 3.0; Amtrak’s Portal Bridge, mile 5.0; and NJTRO’s Upper Hack and HX Bridges, miles 6.9 and 7.7, respectively, all across the Hackensack River, NJ to remain closed during the Super Bowl XLVIII weekend to facilitate the movement of more than 150,000 visitors, guests and area residents to various public events and activities in New York and New Jersey. This deviation is effective from 10 a.m. Saturday, February 1, through 1 a.m. Monday, February 3, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a temporary deviation from the regulation governing the operation of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (AMTRAK) Dock Railroad Bridge across Passaic River, mile 5.0, between Newark and Harrison, New Jersey. This deviation allows the AMTRACK Dock Bridge, mile 5.0, across the Passaic River to remain closed during the Super Bowl XLVIII weekend to facilitate the movement of more than 150,000 visitors, guests and area residents to various public events and activities in New York and New Jersey. This deviation is effective from 10:00 a.m. Saturday, February 1 through 1:00 a.m. Monday, February 3, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard proposes to temporarily change the operating schedule that governs the S37 Bridge, at NJICW mile 14.1 over Barnegat Bay, at Seaside Heights, NJ. Over the span of two and half years, the bridge will be closed to navigation for three four-month closure periods. Extensive replacement of parts and repairs to the bridge necessitate these closures. Comments and related material must reach the Coast Guard on or before February 18, 2014. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number USCG–2013–0926.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing this proposed rule to amend the 1994 tentative final monograph or proposed rule (the 1994 TFM) for over-the-counter (OTC) antiseptic drug products. In this proposed rule, we are proposing to establish conditions under which OTC consumer antiseptic products intended for use with water (referred to throughout as consumer antiseptic washes) are generally recognized as safe and effective. In the 1994 TFM, certain antiseptic active ingredients were proposed as being safe for antiseptic handwash use by consumers based on safety data evaluated by FDA as part of our ongoing review of OTC antiseptic drug products. However, in light of more recent scientific developments and changes in the use patterns of these products we are now proposing that additional safety data are necessary to support the safety of antiseptic active ingredients for this use. We also are proposing that all consumer antiseptic wash active ingredients have data that demonstrate a clinical benefit from the use of these consumer antiseptic wash products compared to nonantibacterial soap and water. Submit electronic or written comments by June 16, 2014. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number FDA–1975–N–0012.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Greenland turbot in the Bering Sea subarea of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI). This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2013 Greenland turbot initial total allowable catch (ITAC) in the Bering Sea subarea of the BSAI. Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), December 12, 2013, through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2013.

PROPOSED RULE: We propose to revise the criteria in parts A and B of the Listing of Impairments (listings) that we use to evaluate cases involving cancer (malignant neoplastic diseases) in adults and children under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act (Act). These proposed revisions reflect our adjudicative experience, advances in medical knowledge, and recommendations from medical experts we consulted, as well as public comments we received on methods of evaluating cancer. To ensure that your comments are considered, we must receive them no later than February 18, 2014. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number SSA–2011–0098.)
