Federal Register Highlights – 8/12/15

August 13, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 12, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the US 70/Alfred C. Cunningham Bridge across the Trent River, mile 0.0, at New Bern, NC. The deviation is necessary to allow the participants of the annual Neuse River Historic New Bern Bike Ride (a two day event) to safely complete their ride without interruptions from bridge openings. This deviation allows the bridge draw span to remain in the closed-to-navigation position for one and a half hours each day to accommodate the race. This deviation is effective from 8 a.m. September 12, 2015 to 9:30 a.m. on September 13, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the Willamette River in the vicinity of the TriMet Tilikum Crossing Bridge in Portland, OR. This safety zone is necessary to help ensure the safety of the maritime public during a fireworks display and will do so by prohibiting unauthorized persons and vessels from entering the safety zones unless authorized by the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port or his designated representatives. This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. on August 22, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: NASA proposes to amend the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) to revise a current clause related to safety and health measures and mishaps reporting by narrowing the application of the clause, resulting in a decrease in the reporting burden on contractors while reinforcing the measures contractors at NASA facilities must take to protect the safety of their workers, NASA employees, the public, and high value assets. The revision to this proposed rule is part of NASA’s retrospective plan under Executive Order (EO) 13563 completed in August 2011. DATES: Interested parties should submit written comments on or before October 13, 2015 to be considered in the formation of the final rule. (To submit comments, visit, reference RIN 2700-AE16.)
