Fedeal Register Highlights – 4/7/14

April 7, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for April 7, 2014:

PROPOSED RULE: This proposed rule invites comments on proposed rules and regulations necessary for the California Date Administrative Committee (committee) to exercise its authority to impose interest and late payment charges on overdue handler assessments. The California date marketing order (order) regulates the handling of dates produced or packed in Riverside County, California, and is administered locally by the committee. Assessments upon date handlers are used to fund the reasonable and necessary expenses of the committee. These changes are expected to assist in the financial administration of the order by encouraging handlers to pay their assessments in a timely manner. Comments must be received by June 6, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference docket number AMS–FV–13–0090.)

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Steel Bridge across the Willamette River, miles 12.1, at Portland, Oregon. This deviation is necessary to accommodate the Race for the Roses event. This deviation allows the upper deck of the Steel Bridge to remain in the closed position to facilitate safe movement of event participants. This deviation is effective from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on April 13, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Broadway Bridge across the Willamette River, mile 11.7, at Portland, OR. The deviation is necessary to accommodate the Portland Race for the Roses event. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the down or closed position to facilitate safe movement of event participants. This deviation is effective from 4:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. April 13, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard will enforce the 2014 Lake Havasu Desert Storm marine event special local regulations on April 26, 2014. This annual marine event occurs on the navigable waters of the Colorado River in Lake Havasu, Arizona. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, safety vessels, and general users of the waterway. During the enforcement period, persons and vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative. This rule is effective from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26, 2014. If the event is delayed by inclement weather, these regulations will also be enforced on April 27, 2014, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

PROPOSED RULE: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) amends the EPA Acquisition Regulation (EPAAR) to update policy, procedures, and contract clauses. The proposed rule updates the Ordering—By Designated Ordering Officers clause and corresponding prescription. Comments must be received on or before May 7, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference docket number EPA–HQ–OARM–2013–0149.)

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a design review, which revealed that no controlled bonding provisions are present on a number of critical locations inside the fuel tank or connected to the fuel tank wall. This AD requires installing additional bonding provisions in the fuel tank, and revising the airplane maintenance or inspection program by incorporating fuel airworthiness limitation items and critical design configuration control limitations. We are issuing this AD to prevent an ignition source in the fuel tank vapor space, which could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane. This AD becomes effective May 12, 2014.
