Federal Register Highlights – 5/8/15

May 8, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 8, 2015:

PROPOSED RULE: This proposal invites comments on expanding the membership of the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council (Council) under the Blueberry Promotion, Research and Information Order (Order). The Council administers the Order with oversight by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This proposal would increase the number of Council members from 16 to 20, adding two producers, one importer, and one exporter. This would help ensure that the Council reflects the geographical distribution of domestic blueberry production and imports into the  United States. This proposal would also add eligibility requirements for the public member, clarify the Council’s nomination procedures and its  ability to serve the diversity of the industry, and increase the number of members needed for a quorum. This proposal also invites comments on prescribing late payment  and interest charges for past due assessments. These changes would help facilitate program administration. All of these actions were unanimously recommended by the Council. Comments must be received by July 7, 2015. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the operation of the Oceanic Bridge across the Navesink (Swimming) River, mile 4.5, between Middletown and Rumson, New Jersey. This deviation allows the bridge owner to perform structural repairs at the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to open only one of the two moveable spans for passage of vessels traffic.  This temporary deviation would help facilitate repairs to the bascule span bearing while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation. This deviation is effective from May 26, 2015 through June 12, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the Pamlico River in Washington, NC. This action is necessary to protect the life and property of the maritime public from the hazards posed by fireworks displays. Entry into or movement within the safety zone during the enforcement period is prohibited without approval of the Captain of the Port or his designated Representative. This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on May 25, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: This rule proposes revisions to the Department of Commerce’s (Department) regulations under the Privacy Act. The Privacy Act regulations are being updated to make technical changes to the applicable exemptions. To be considered, written comments must be submitted on or before June 8, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: As the Federal Government’s Executive Agent for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) implements the Federal Government-wide CUI Program. As part of that responsibility, ISOO proposes this rule to establish policy for agencies on designating, safeguarding, disseminating, marking, decontrolling, and disposing of CUI, self-inspection and oversight requirements, and other facets of the Program. Submit comments on or before July 7, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The Commission is proposing a rule which establishes procedures related to the automatic closure of inactive dockets.

The Commission invites public comment on the proposal. Comments are due: June 8, 2015. (To submit comments, visit http://www.prc.gov or contact David A. Trissell, General Counsel, at 202–789–6820.)
