Federal Register Highlights – 7/8/14

July 8, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for July 8, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is temporarily changing the enforcement date of a safety zone for one recurring fireworks display in the Fifth Coast Guard District. This regulation applies to only one recurring fireworks event held in the waters of Metedeconk River in Brick Township, NJ. Instead of the usual enforcement periods—July 4, every Thursday in August, and the first Thursday in September—in 2014 enforcement will take place on July 3, July 17, and August 14. The safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic in a portion of Metedeconk River near Brick Township, NJ, during the event. This rule is effective from July 8, 2014 through August 14, 2014 and will be enforced from 8:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on July 3, July 17, and August 14, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard proposes to establish a safety zone on the navigable waters of the James River in the vicinity of the James River Reserve Fleet and Hog Island, Virginia for multiple periods of one hour in length each on all weekdays from August 6 until August 15, 2014. This safety zone is intended to restrict vessel movement in the specified area during the United States Navy’s demonstrations involving unmanned and remote-operated crafts. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life and property on the surrounding navigable waters during the events due to the high speed maneuvering of the vessels and the experimental nature of the control technology. Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before July 23, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference docket number USCG–2014–0376. Commenting page was not available at the time of this posting.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS implements accountability measures (AMs) for the commercial deep-water complex in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the South Atlantic. Commercial landings for the deep-water complex, as estimated by the Science and Research Director, are projected to reach the commercial annual catch limit (ACL) on July 10, 2014. Therefore, NMFS is closing the commercial sector for the deep-water complex in the South Atlantic EEZ on July 10, 2014, and it will remain closed until the start of the next fishing season, January 1, 2015. This closure is necessary to protect the deep-water complex resource. This rule is effective 12:01 a.m., local time, July 10, 2014, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS implements accountability measures (AMs) for the commercial sector for the lesser amberjack, almaco jack, and banded rudderfish complex in the South Atlantic for the 2014 fishing year through this temporary rule. Commercial landings for the lesser amberjack, almaco jack, and banded rudderfish complex, as estimated by the Science and Research Director (SRD), are projected to reach their combined commercial annual catch limit (ACL) on July 15, 2014. Therefore, NMFS closes the commercial sector for this complex on July 15, 2014, through the remainder of the fishing year in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the South Atlantic. This closure is necessary to protect the lesser amberjack, almaco jack, and banded rudderfish resources. This rule is effective 12:01 a.m., local time, July 15, 2014, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2015.
