Federal Register Highlights – 7/17/15

July 17, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for July 17, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is extending the temporary safety zones and regulated navigation area that were previously established because the departure of several of the vessels associated with Royal Dutch Shell’s (Shell) planned Arctic oil drilling and exploration operations have been delayed. The safety zones and regulated navigation area extended by this rule are necessary to ensure the mutual safety of all waterways users including the specified vessels and those individuals that desire to exercise their First Amendment rights. This rule is effective without actual notice from July 17, 2015 through July 31, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard proposes to establish a regulated navigation area (RNA) on the Middle Waterway in Tacoma, Washington. The RNA will protect the sediment cap areas in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Commencement Bay Nearshore/Tideflats (CB–NT) Superfund Cleanup Site in the Middle Waterway Problem Area. This regulated navigation area would prohibit activities that could disrupt the integrity of the engineered sediment caps that have been placed within the Middle Waterway Problem Area. These activities include vessel grounding, anchoring, dragging, trawling, spudding or other such activities that would disturb the integrity of the sediment caps. It will not affect transit or navigation of this area or the existing industrial activities occurring in this area. Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before October 15, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC–8–102, –103, –106, –201, –202, –301, –311, and –315 airplanes. This AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new limitations for fuel tank systems. We are issuing this AD to prevent potential ignition sources within the fuel system, which could result in a fuel tank explosion. This AD becomes effective August 21, 2015. AD 2015-14-03

PROPOSED RULE: In this document, the Federal Communications Commission (the Commission) seeks to rebuild the current framework of the Lifeline program and continue its efforts to modernize the Lifeline program so that all consumers can utilize advanced networks. Comments are due August 17, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov. Click here to be taken directly to the commenting page.) WC Docket No. 11-42

PROPOSED RULE: This document contains proposed regulations relating to property transferred in connection with the performance of services.

Comments must be received by October 15, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov. Click here to be taken directly to the commenting page.) REG-135524-14
