Federal Register Highlights – 8/8/16

August 8, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 8, 2016:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the US 101 Bridge across the Umpqua River, mile 11.1, at Reedsport, OR. The deviation is necessary to accommodate updating the electric control panels on the bridge. This deviation allows the US 101 Bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during upgrades. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on August 16, 2016 until 5 p.m. on August 18, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for an aerobatic demonstration over the navigable waters of Lake Champlain along the shoreline in Burlington, VT. This temporary safety zone will be necessary to protect spectators and vessels from hazards associated with the air show. Entry into, transit through, mooring or anchoring within this regulated area will be prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Sector Northern New England (SNNE). This rule is effective from 9 a.m. on August 12, 2014, through 6 p.m. on August 14, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: The Office of Justice Programs (“OJP”) proposes to update the implementing regulation for the Formula Grant Program authorized by Title II, Part B, of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 (“the Act” or “JJDPA”). The purpose of the Formula Grant Program is to provide formula grant awards to states to support juvenile delinquency prevention programs and to improve their juvenile justice systems. The proposed rule would supersede the existing Formula Grant Program regulations to reflect changes in the 2002 JJDPA reauthorization as well as policy changes to the Formula Grant Program. Comments must be received by no later than 11:59 p.m., E.T., on October 7, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket No.: OJP (OJJDP) 1719.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is reallocating the projected unused amounts of the Aleut Corporation pollock directed fishing allowance from the Aleutian Islands subarea to the Bering Sea subarea. This action is necessary to provide opportunity for harvest of the 2016 total allowable catch of pollock, consistent with the goals and objectives of the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area. Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), August 8, 2016, through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: We announce the reduction of the commercial possession limit for northern red hake for the remainder of the 2016 fishing year. This action is required to prevent the northern red hake total allowable landing limit from being exceeded. This announcement informs the public that the northern red hake possession limit is reduced. Effective August 8, 2016, through April 30, 2017.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS implements an accountability measure (AM) for the recreational sector for the other jacks complex (lesser amberjack, almaco jack, and banded rudderfish) in the South Atlantic for the 2016 fishing year through this temporary rule. NMFS projects that recreational landings of the other jacks complex will reach their combined recreational annual catch limit (ACL) by August 9, 2016. Therefore, NMFS closes the recreational sector for this complex on August 9, 2016, through the remainder of the fishing year in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the South Atlantic. This closure is necessary to protect the lesser amberjack, almaco jack, and banded rudderfish resources. This rule is effective 12:01 a.m., local time, August 9, 2016, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2017.
