Federal Register Highlights – 2/14/14

April 30, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for February 14, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the operation of the Cape Fear River Memorial Bridge, across the Cape Fear River, mile 26.8, at Wilmington, NC. The deviation is necessary to restrict the operation of the draw span to facilitate the biannual inspections. This deviation is effective from 8 a.m. on March 17, 2014 until 4 p.m. on March 28, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The U.S. Department of Energy is proposing to revise and expand its existing regulations governing certifying compliance with the applicable energy conservation standards and the reporting of related ratings for commercial heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, water heating, and refrigeration equipment covered by EPCA. DOE will accept comments, data, and information regarding this notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) no later than March 17, 2014.  (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number EERE–2013–BT–NOC–0023.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) is proposing to repeal its Regulation P, 12 CFR Part 216, which was issued to implement section 504 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB Act). Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) transferred rulemaking authority for a number of consumer financial protection laws from the Board, and six other Federal agencies, to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau), including rulemaking authority for the provisions in Subtitle A of Title V of the GLB Act that were implemented in the Board’s Regulation P. In December 2011, the Bureau published an interim final rule establishing its own Regulation P to implement these provisions of the GLB Act (Bureau Interim Final Rule). The Bureau’s Regulation P covers those entities previously subject to the Board’s Regulation P. Accordingly, the Board is proposing to repeal its Regulation P. Comments must be received on or before April 15, 2014. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket No. R–1483).

PROPOSED RULE: In this document, the Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) proposes to clarify that body imaging search devices are ‘‘electronic search devices’’ for routine or random use in searching inmates, and are distinguished from medical x-ray devices, which require the inmate’s consent, or Regional Director approval, for use as search devices. Comments are due by April 15, 2014. (To submit comments, visit, reference RIN 1120–AB62).
