Federal Register Highlights – 8/11/16

August 11, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 11, 2016:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for navigable waters of the Allegheny River mile 0.0–0.25, Ohio River mile 0.0–0.1, Monongahela River mile 0.0–0.1. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created from a barge-based fireworks display. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Pittsburgh. This rule is effective on August 12, 2016 from 9:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m.

PROPOSED RULE: DoD is proposing to amend the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement sections of the National Defense Authorization Acts for Fiscal Years 2013 and 2016 relating to commercial item acquisitions. Comments on the proposed rule should be submitted in writing on or before October 11, 2016, to be considered in the formation of a final rule. (To submit comments, visit, reference DFARS Case 2016–D006.)

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Continental Motors, Inc., (CMI) San Antonio (formerly known as Airmotive Engineering Corp. (AEC)), replacement parts manufacturer approval (PMA) cylinder assemblies marketed by Engine Components International Division (ECi). On July 17, 2015, AEC was purchased by CMI and is now operating as “Continental Motors—San Antonio.” These cylinder assemblies are used on all CMI model –520 and –550 reciprocating engines, and on all other CMI engine models approved for the use of model –520 and –550 cylinder assemblies, such as the CMI model –470 when modified by supplemental type certificate (STC). This AD was prompted by reports of multiple cylinder head-to- barrel separations and cracked and leaking aluminum cylinder heads. This AD requires removal of the affected cylinder assemblies, including overhauled cylinder assemblies, according to a phased removal schedule. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the cylinder assemblies, which could lead to failure of the engine, in- flight shutdown, and loss of control of the airplane. This AD is effective September 15, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: NMFS proposes regulations to implement Regulatory Amendment 16 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (FMP) (Regulatory Amendment 16), as prepared and submitted by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council). If implemented, this proposed rule would revise the current seasonal prohibition on the use of black sea bass pot gear in the South Atlantic and add additional gear marking requirements for black sea bass pot gear. The purpose of this proposed rule is to reduce the adverse socioeconomic impacts from the current seasonal black sea bass pot gear prohibition while continuing to protect Endangered Species Act (ESA) listed whales in the South Atlantic. This proposed rule would also help better identify black sea bass pot gear in the South Atlantic. Written comments must be received on or before September 12, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket No. NOAA–NMFS–2013–0165.)
