Federal Register Highlights – 9/13/16

September 13, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for September 13, 2016:

PROPOSED RULE: The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is proposing a rule addressing the conduct of receiverships for national banks that are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) (uninsured banks) and for which the FDIC would not be appointed as receiver. The proposed rule would implement the provisions of the National Bank Act (NBA) that provide the legal framework for receiverships of such institutions. Comments must be received no later than November 14, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket ID OCC–2016–0017.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (“EPCA”), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including walk-in coolers and freezers. EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”) to periodically determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. DOE proposes prescribing energy conservation standards for certain categories of walk-in cooler and freezer refrigeration systems and plans to hold a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards along with their accompanying analyses. DOE will accept comments, data, and information regarding this notice of proposed rulemaking (“NOPR”) before and after the public meeting, but no later than November 14, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket Number EERE–2015–BT–STD–0016.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is exchanging unused rock sole Community Development Quota (CDQ) for yellowfin sole CDQ acceptable biological catch (ABC) reserves in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area. This action is necessary to allow the 2016 total allowable catch of yellowfin sole in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area to be harvested. Effective September 13, 2016 through December 31, 2016.
