Federal Register Highlights – 7/11/16

July 11, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for July 11, 2016:

PROPOSED RULE: The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) is proposing to amend Regulation P, which requires, among other things, that financial institutions provide an annual notice describing their privacy policies and practices to their customers. The amendment would implement a December 2015 statutory amendment to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act providing an exception to this annual notice requirement for financial institutions that meet certain conditions. Comments must be received on or before August 10, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. CFPB–2016–0032.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard proposes to permit tankers with automatic pilot systems that meet certain international standards to operate using those systems in waters subject to the shipping safety fairway or traffic separation scheme controls specified in our regulations. The proposed amendments would remove an unnecessary regulatory restriction, update the technical requirements for automatic pilot systems, and promote the Coast Guard’s maritime safety and stewardship (environmental protection) missions by enhancing maritime safety. Comments and related material must be submitted to the online docket via http://www.regulations.gov, or reach the Docket Management Facility, on or before October 11, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. USCG–2015–0926.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Secretary proposes new regulations under title I, part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to implement changes made to the ESEA by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) enacted on December 10, 2015, including the ability of the Secretary to provide demonstration authority to a State educational agency (SEA) to pilot an innovative assessment and use it for accountability and reporting purposes under title I, part A of the ESEA before scaling such an assessment statewide. We must receive your comments on or before September 9, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket ID ED–2016–OESE–0047.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Secretary proposes to amend the regulations governing programs administered under title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA). The proposed regulations would implement recent changes to the assessment requirements of title I of the ESEA made by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Unless otherwise specified, references to the ESEA mean the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA. We must receive your comments on or before September 9, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket ID ED–2016–OESE–0053.)

PROPOAD RULE: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve elements of a State Implementation Plan (SIP) submission from the State of Kansas addressing the applicable requirements of Clean Air Act (CAA) section 110 for the 2012 annual PM2.5 NAAQS. Section 110 requires that each state adopt and submit a SIP to support the implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of each new or revised NAAQS promulgated by the EPA. These SIPs are commonly referred to as “infrastructure” SIPs. The infrastructure requirements are designed to ensure that the structural components of each state’s air quality management program are adequate to meet the state’s responsibilities under the CAA. Comments must be received on or before August 10, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. EPA–R07–OAR–2016–0313.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is adjusting the commercial aggregated large coastal shark (LCS) and hammerhead shark management group retention limit for directed shark limited access permit holders in the Atlantic region from 3 LCS other than sandbar sharks per vessel per trip to 45 LCS other than sandbar sharks per vessel per trip. This action is based on consideration of the regulatory determination criteria regarding inseason adjustments. The retention limit will remain at 45 LCS other than sandbar sharks per vessel per trip in the Atlantic region through the rest of the 2016 fishing season or until NMFS announces via a notice in the Federal Register another adjustment to the retention limit or a fishery closure. This retention limit adjustment affects anyone with a directed shark limited access permit fishing for LCS in the Atlantic region. This retention limit adjustment is effective on July 15, 2016, through the end of the 2016 fishing season on December 31, 2016, or until NMFS announces via a notice in the Federal Register another adjustment to the retention limit or a fishery closure, if warranted.
