Federal Register Highlights – 6/19/14

June 19, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for June 19, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the 3rd Street Drawbridge across China Basin, mile 0.0, at San Francisco, CA. The deviation is necessary to allow the public to cross the bridge to participate in the scheduled San Francisco Marathon, a community event. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on July 27, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of Great South Bay near Cherry Grove, Fire Island, NY for the Arts Project Cherry Grove Pride Week fireworks display. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. The safety zone will facilitate public notification of the event and provide protective measures for the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with the fireworks display. Entering into, transiting through, remaining, anchoring or mooring within this regulated area would be prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Sector Long Island Sound. This rule is effective from June 21, 2014 to June 22, 2014. This rule will be enforced from 8:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. on June 21, 2014. If the event is cancelled due to inclement weather, then this regulation will be enforced from 8:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. on June 22, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard will enforce the safety zone for the Delta Independence Day Celebration Fireworks in the Captain of the Port, San Francisco area of responsibility during the dates and times noted below. This action is necessary to protect life and property of the maritime public from the hazards associated with the fireworks display. During the enforcement period, unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring in the safety zone, unless authorized by the Patrol Commander (PATCOM). The regulations in 33 CFR 165.1191, Table 1, Item number 14 will be enforced from 10 a.m. on July 2, 2014 to 10 p.m. on July 4, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the navigable waters of Lake Tahoe near Incline Village, NV in support of the Execpro Services Fireworks Display on July 5, 2014. This safety zone is established to ensure the safety of participants and spectators from the dangers associated with the pyrotechnics. Unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining in the safety zone without permission of the Captain of the Port or their designated representative. This rule is effective from July 3, 2014 until July 5, 2014. This rule will be enforced from 7 a.m. on July 3, 2014 until 10:10 p.m. on July 5, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Agusta Model AB412 helicopters. This AD requires inspecting the main transmission lubricating system oil outlet hose (hose) for damage, and, if required, replacing the hose. This AD is prompted by reports of damage found on the hose. These actions are intended to prevent loss of main gear box (MGB) lubrication, which could lead to failure of the MGB and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. This AD becomes effective July 7, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Agusta S.p.A. (Agusta) Model AB412 and AB412EP helicopters with a certain rotor brake pinion installed. This AD requires inspecting the rotor brake pinion for a crack, and replacing it if there is a crack. This AD is prompted by a report of a rotor brake pinion failure. These actions are intended to detect a crack on the rotor brake pinion and prevent failure of the rotor brake pinion, which could lead to detachment of parts inside the transmission and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. This AD becomes effective July 7, 2014.

RULE: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2003–01–04 for BHTI Model 204B, 205A, 205A–1, 205B, and 212 helicopters. AD 2003–01–04 required inspecting the main rotor grip (grip) and reporting certain inspection results to the FAA. AD 2003–01–04 also required performing additional inspections, repair, or replacement depending on whether a crack or delamination was found, and determining and recording the hours time-in-service (TIS) and the engine start/stop cycles for each grip on a component history card or equivalent record. This new AD requires the same actions as AD 2003–01–04 but adds a retirement life to certain grips and expands the applicability to include the Model 210 helicopter and additional part-numbered grips. This AD was prompted by the discovery of additional cracked grips. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of a grip, separation of a main rotor blade, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. This AD is effective July 24, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: This proposed rule revises the process and criteria for Federal acknowledgment of Indian tribes. This rulemaking would establish procedures for a new category of expedited hearing for petitioners who receive a negative proposed finding for Federal acknowledgment and request a hearing. This rule would also establish procedures for a new re-petition authorization process for petitioners whose petitions have been denied. This proposed rule is related to a Bureau of Indian Affairs proposed rule that would revise processing of petitions for Federal acknowledgment of Indian tribes. Comments on this rule must be received by August 18, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference RIN 1094–AA54.)

PROPOSED RULE: ONRR proposes to amend its regulations governing the valuation, for royalty purposes, of oil produced from Indian leases. The proposed rule would clarify the major portion valuation requirement found in the existing regulations for oil production. The proposed rule would represent recommendations of the Indian Oil Valuation Negotiated Rulemaking Committee. This proposed rule also contains new reporting requirements to implement the changes to the major portion valuation requirement. Comments must be submitted on or before August 18, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference docket number ONRR–2014–0001.)

PROPOSED RULE: NARA proposes to revise its regulation governing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) access to NARA’s archival holdings and NARA’s own operational records. On August 5, 2013, NARA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register for a 60-day comment period. The public comment period closed on October 4, 2013. NARA received four sets of comments on the proposed rule. In the course of reviewing the proposed rule and addressing those comments, NARA proposed to make additional substantive revisions beyond those addressed in the comments and any administrative or plain language changes. Therefore, NARA is publishing those new substantive revisions for a second round of public comment. The revisions from both rounds of comments, and the comments received, will be compiled and addressed together when NARA publishes the final regulation. Submit comments on or before July 21, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference RIN 3095–AB73.)

PROPOSED RULE: NMFS proposes management measures to implement Special Management Zones for five Delaware artificial reefs under the black sea bass provisions of the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan. The implementing regulations for the Special Management Zones require NMFS to publish proposed measures to provide an opportunity for public comment. The intent of these measures is to promote orderly use of the resource by reducing user group conflicts, and help maintain the intended socioeconomic benefits of the artificial reefs to the maximum extent practicable. Comments must be received by 5 p.m. local time, on August 4, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference docket number NMFS–2014–0060.)
