Federal Register Highlights – 8/18/16

August 18, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 18, 2016:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone around the Giant Duck barge and its corresponding tug during the Tall Ships Duluth 2016 parade of sail in Lake Superior near Duluth, MN. This safety zone will provide for the regulation of vessel traffic in the vicinity of the tow in the navigable waters of the United States. This safety zone is necessary to safeguard participants and spectators from the hazards associated with the limited maneuverability of a barge and tow. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Duluth. This rule is effective from 8 a.m. through 8 p.m. August 18, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: In this document, the Federal Communications Commission (Commission or FCC) proposes and seeks comment on revising the Commission’s rules governing commercial mobile radio services. We propose to end the presumption contained in the Commission’s rules that all applicants and licensees in the services identified in that section intend to license their facilities as commercial mobile radio service (“CMRS”) operations by eliminating that section and making related rule changes. Submit comments on or before October 17, 2016 and reply comments on or before November 16, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference WT Docket No. 16–240.)

PROPOSED RULE: This action proposes modifications to the Southern Scup Gear Restricted Area, as recommended by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council. The proposed changes would modify the southern and eastern boundaries of the Southern Scup Gear Restricted Area, which is in effect from January 1 through March 15 of each year. This rule is intended to increase access to traditional squid fishing areas, while maintaining protection for juvenile scup. Comments must be received by September 19, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket No. NOAA–NMFS–2016–0102.)
