Federal Register Highlights – 9/24/15

September 24, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for September 24, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Montlake Bridge across the Lake Washington Ship Canal, mile 5.2, at Seattle, WA. The Montlake Bridge is a double leaf bascule bridge. The deviation is necessary to allow the bridge to operate in single leaf mode during day light hours, and a full closure (both bascule leafs in the closed-to-navigation position) during night time hours while work crews replace bridge decking. This deviation allows a single leaf opening with a one hour advance notice during the day, and remains in the closed-to-navigation position at night. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on October 3, 2015 to 7 a.m. on October 26, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: On September 8, 2015, the federal departments and agencies that are subject to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (referred to as the “Common Rule”) published a notice of proposed rulemaking (“NPR”) amending the Common Rule. Through this proposed rule, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC” or “Commission”) proposes to adopt the Common Rule NPR and solicits public comment on the proposal. Comments must be received no later than 5 p.m. on December 7, 2015. (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number HHS-OPHS-2015-0008.)

PROPOSED RULE: The United States International Trade Commission (“Commission”) proposes to amend its Rules of Practice and Procedure concerning rules of general application, adjudication, and enforcement. The amendments are necessary to make certain technical corrections, to clarify certain provisions, to harmonize different parts of the Commission’s rules, and to address concerns that have arisen in Commission practice. The intended effect of the proposed amendments is to facilitate compliance with the Commission’s Rules and improve the administration of agency proceedings. To be assured of consideration, written comments must be received by 5:15 p.m. November 23, 2015. (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number MISC-045.)
