Federal Register Highlights – 6/20/16

June 20, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for June 20, 2016:

PROPOSED RULE: DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 to raise the simplified acquisition threshold for special emergency procurement authority. Interested parties should submit written comments to the Regulatory Secretariat Division on or before August 19, 2016 to be considered in the formation of the final rule. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference FAR Case 2016–004.)

PROPOSED RULE: DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement a section of the Carl Levin and Howard P. “Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 that provides that the contract file shall contain certain documentation if the Federal Government makes a purchase of supplies and services offered under the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI), but the FSSI is not used. Interested parties should submit comments to the Regulatory Secretariat Division on or before August 19, 2016 to be considered in the formulation of a final rule. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference FAR Case 2015–015.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Department of Commerce (the Department) proposes to modify the applicability date contained in the final rule published in the Federal Register on March 24, 2016, Modification of Regulations Regarding Price Adjustments in Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 81 FR 15641, and is seeking comments from parties. The original applicability date language did not convey the Department’s intention, i.e., to apply the newly amended regulation to all segments of proceedings initiated on or after the effective date contained in the Federal Register notice. This action is necessary to ensure that there is no ambiguity in the application of the modified regulations. To be assured of consideration, written comments must be received no later than July 5, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. ITA–2016–003.)

TEMPORARY RULE: This action closes the Cape Cod/Gulf of Maine yellowtail flounder Trimester Total Allowable Catch Area to Northeast multispecies common pool vessels fishing with gillnet and trawl gear for the remainder of Trimester 1, through August 31, 2016. The closure is required by regulation because the common pool fishery has caught 90 percent of its Trimester 1 quota for Cape Cod/Gulf of Maine yellowtail flounder. This closure is intended to prevent an overage of the common pool’s quota for this stock. This action is effective June 15, 2016, through August 31, 2016.
