Federal Register Highlights – 4/15/16

April 15, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for April 15, 2016:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Delair Bridge across the Delaware River, mile 104.6, between Philadelphia PA and Delair, NJ. The deviation is necessary to perform bridge repairs. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to- navigation position. This deviation is effective from 5 a.m. on April 30, 2016 to 5 a.m. on June 11, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary special local regulation controlling movement of vessels for certain waters of the Detroit River, Trenton Channel. This action is necessary and is intended to ensure safety of life on navigable waters to be used for a rowing event immediately prior to, during, and immediately after this event. This regulation requires vessels to maintain a minimum speed for safe navigation and maneuvering. This temporary final rule is effective from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. on April 30, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is proposing to amend its Bid Protest Regulations, promulgated in accordance with the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984 (CICA), to implement the requirements in sec. 1501 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2014, which was enacted on January 14, 2014, and to make certain administrative changes. The proposed amendments implement the legislation’s direction to establish and operate an electronic filing and document dissemination system for the filing of bid protests with GAO. At this time, GAO believes that these proposed revisions are the only regulatory changes necessary to implement the statutory requirement of sec. 1501. The proposed amendments also include administrative changes to reflect current practice and to streamline the bid protest process. Comments must be submitted on or before May 16, 2016. (Comments may be submitted by email at, to the attention of Jonathan L. Kang, Senior Attorney, Government Accountability Office, 441 G Street NW., Washington, DC 20548.)
