Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 13, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the 3rd Street Drawbridge across China Basin, mile 0.0, at San Francisco, CA. The deviation is necessary to allow participants to cross the bridge during the San Francisco Giant Race event. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective from 5 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on August 23, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the California Department of Transportation highway drawbridge across the Mokelumne River, mile 3.0, at East Isleton, CA. The deviation is necessary to allow the bridge owner to perform installation of motor drives. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to- navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. on August 17, 2015 to 10 p.m. on August 19, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Tower Drawbridge across the Sacramento River, mile 59.0 at Sacramento, CA. The deviation is necessary to allow the community to participate in the Arches Run. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective from 7:50 a.m. to 10 a.m. on August 16, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the Outer Harbor, Gallagher Beach, Buffalo, NY. This safety zone is intended to restrict vessels from a portion of the Outer Harbor during the Carly’s Crossing swimming event. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect participants, spectators, mariners, and vessels from the navigational hazards associated with a large scale swimming event. This rule is effective from 6:45 a.m. until 2:15 p.m. on August 16, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including ceiling fan light kits (CFLKs). EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to periodically determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. In this notice, DOE proposes amended energy conservation standards for CFLKs, and also 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 NOPR before and after the public meeting, but no later than October 13, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number EERE-2012-BT-STD-0045.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) proposes the removal of its regulations pertaining to administrative functions, practices, and procedures for occupational safety and health research and related activities conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As a part of the retrospective review conducted by all Federal agencies, HHS has determined that these regulations are no longer in use by NIOSH and should be removed. Comments must be received by September 14, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number CDC-2015-0062.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is opening directed fishing for groundfish, other than pollock, by non-Rockfish Program catcher vessels using trawl gear in the Western and Central Regulatory Areas of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This action is necessary to fully use the 2015 groundfish total allowable catch available for non-Rockfish Program catcher vessels directed fishing for groundfish, other than pollock, using trawl gear in the Western and Central Regulatory Areas of the GOA. Effective 1200 hours, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), August 10, 2015, through 2400 hours, A.l.t., December 31, 2015.
