Federal Register Highlights – 4/29/16

April 29, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for April 29, 2016:

PROPOSED RULE: The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is proposing to remove its regulations implementing the government-wide common rule on nonprocurement debarment and suspension, currently located in part 98 of title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), and adopting the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) guidance at title 2 of the CFR. This regulatory action implements the OMB’s initiative to streamline and consolidate into one title of the CFR all Federal regulations on nonprocurement debarment and suspension. These changes constitute an administrative simplification that would make no substantive change in DOL policy or procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension. Submit comments on the proposed rule by or before May 31, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference RIN 1291–AA38.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Greenland turbot in the Aleutian Islands subarea of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI). This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2016 Greenland turbot initial total allowable catch (ITAC) in the Aleutian Islands subarea of the BSAI. Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), May 1, 2016, through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is prohibiting retention of longnose skate in the Western Regulatory Area of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This action is necessary because the 2016 total allowable catch of longnose skate in the Western Regulatory Area of the GOA will be reached. Effective 1200 hours, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), April 26, 2016, through 2400 hours, A.l.t., December 31, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: This SNPRM proposes to incorporate and allow the use of the 2015 edition of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section XII— Rules for Construction and Continued Service of Transport Tanks for the construction and continued service of cargo tank motor vehicles (CTMVs), cryogenic portable tanks, and multi-unit tank car tanks (“ton tanks”). The PHMSA also proposes to incorporate and authorize the use of the 2015 edition of the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors National Board Inspection Code, in our regulations as it applies to the continued service of CTMVs, cryogenic portable tanks, and ton tanks constructed to ASME Section XII standards, as well as for existing CTMVs constructed in accordance with the current hazardous materials regulations. If adopted, these amendments will allow for flexibility regarding selection of authorized packaging, in addition to qualification and maintenance for continued service of the packaging, without compromising safety. Submit comments by June 28, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. PHMSA–2010–0019 (HM–241).)
