Federal Register Highlights – 4/2/15

April 2, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for April 2, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The U.S. Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in Marina del Rey around the fireworks launch site located on the south jetty. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the waterway users during the fireworks display that will take place in the vicinity of the Marina del Rey Main Channel. Entry into this temporary safety zone will be prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port, Los Angeles—Long Beach, or her designated representative. This rule is effective on April 10, 2015 from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone in Portland, OR. This safety zone is necessary to ensure the safety of the  maritime public and construction crews during construction of the Sellwood Bridge by prohibiting unauthorized persons and vessels from entering  the regulated area unless authorized by the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port or his designated representatives. This rule is effective without actual notice from April 2, 2015 until June 10, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the Pacific Ocean to encompass waters within the Port of Long Beach. The safety zone will be established as a result of specific waterside protest at Tesoro Terminals and in support of the safe navigation of all  waterway users. Entry into the zone will be prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port, Los Angeles—Long Beach, or her designated representative. This rule is effective without actual notice from April 2, 2015 until April 30, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, sets forth a variety of provisions designed to improve energy efficiency. Part C of Title III, which for editorial reasons was re-designated as Part A–1 upon incorporation into the U.S. Code, establishes the “Energy Conservation Program for Certain Industrial Equipment.” The covered equipment includes pumps. In this document, DOE proposes to establish new energy conservation standards for pumps and announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results. DOE will accept comments, data, and information regarding this notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) before and after the public meeting, but no later than June 1, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: ; The Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) is proposing to amend Rule 15b9–1 (‘‘Rule’’) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act” or “Exchange Act”), which exempts certain brokers or dealers from membership in a registered national securities association (“Association”). The proposed amendments would replace the current gross income allowance in the Rule with a narrower exemption from Association membership for a broker or dealer that carries no customer accounts and effects transactions on a national securities exchange. The proposed amendments would create an exemption for a dealer that effects transactions off the exchange of which it is a member solely for the purpose of hedging the risks of its floorbased activity, or a broker or dealer that effects transactions off the exchange resulting from orders that are routed by a national securities exchange of which it is a member, to prevent tradethroughs consistent with the provisions of Rule 611 of Regulation NMS. Comments should be received on or before June 1, 2015.
