November 19, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for November 19, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is changing the operating regulation that governs the Conrail railroad bridge over Darby Creek at mile 0.25 in Essington, Pennsylvania. The bridge owner, Conrail, is modifying the existing remote operating system which controls the bridge operations. Cameras will be installed in the remote operating site will move from its current location in Delair, New Jersey to Mount Laurel, New Jersey. The train crew is no longer required to stop and check the waterway for approaching vessel traffic prior to initiating the bridge closure and Mariners requesting an opening for the bridge will have to contacted the new remote location. This rule is effective December 19, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has determined preliminarily that there may be an unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with recreational off-Highway vehicles (ROVs). To address these risks, the Commission proposes a rule that includes: lateral stability in vehicle handling requirements that specify a minimum level of rollover resistance for ROVs and require that our ROVs exhibit supplement understeer characteristics; occupant retention requirements that would limit the maximum speed of an ROV to no more than 15 mph (mph), unless the seatbelts of both the driver and front passenger’s, if any, are fastened, and would require ROVs to have a passive means, such as a barrier or structure, to limit further the ejection of the belted occupant in the event of a rollover; and information requirements. Submit comments by February 2, 2015. (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number CPSC-2009-0087. Commenting page was not available at the time of this posting.)

PROPOSED RULE: On February 12, 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized amendments to the national emission standards for the control of hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) from the new and existing Portland cement manufacturing industry as major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP). Subsequently, the EPA has become aware of certain minor technical errors in those amendments, and is, accordingly, proposing amendments at technical corrections to the final rule. In addition, the EPA plans to remove rule provisions establishing an affirmative defense in the final technical correction rule. Comments must be received on or before January 20, 2015.
