Federal Register Highlights – 9/4/15

September 5, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for September 4, 2015:

PROPOSED RULE: We are proposing to amend the Virus-Serum-Toxin Act regulations concerning records and reports. This change would require veterinary biologics licensees and permittees to record and submit reports concerning adverse events associated with the use of biological products they produce or distribute. The information that must be included in the adverse event reports submitted to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service would be provided in separate guidance documents. This proposed rule replaces a previously published proposed rule, which we are withdrawing as part of this document. We will consider all comments that we receive on or before November 3, 2015. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference docket number APHIS-2014-0063.)

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Bridge across the Illinois Waterway, mile 88.8, at Beardstown, Illinois. The deviation is necessary to allow signal upgrades to be installed which can only be done when the bridge is in the closed-to-navigation position. The deviation allows the bridge to be in the closed-to-navigation position for 4 hours. This deviation is effective from noon to 4 p.m., September 24, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Haystack Landing Drawbridge across the Petaluma River, mile 12.4, at Petaluma, CA. The deviation is necessary to allow the bridge owner to replace the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective without actual notice from September 4, 2015 to 6 p.m. on October 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 Farm to Fork dinner event. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during the deviation period. This deviation is effective from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on September 27, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the waters of Indian River Bay in Long Neck, DE. The safety zone will restrict vessel traffic on a portion of Indian River Bay from operating while a fireworks event is taking place. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect the surrounding public and vessels from the hazards associated with a fireworks display. This rule is effective from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on September 6, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS reduces the commercial trip limit for vermilion snapper in or from the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the South Atlantic to 500 lb (227 kg), gutted weight. This trip limit reduction is necessary to protect the South Atlantic vermilion snapper resource. This rule is effective 12:01 a.m., local time, September 10, 2015, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2016.
