Federal Register Highlights – 10/4/16

October 9, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for October 4, 2016:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary special local regulation controlling movement of vessels for certain waters of the Ouachita River. This rule is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during a paddle boat race on October 15, 2016. This regulation requires commercial vessels to notify the Captain of the Port Memphis before entering the event area and require all vessels transiting the area to maintain a minimum speed for safe navigation. This rule is effective on October 15, 2016, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS apportions amounts of the non-specified reserve to the initial total allowable catch (ITAC) of Bering Sea (BS) Pacific Ocean perch, Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) Kamchatka flounder, BSAI “other flatfish,” BSAI northern rockfish, BSAI skates, BSAI sculpins, and BSAI squids in the BSAI management area. This action is necessary to allow the fisheries to continue operating. It is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the fishery management plan for the BSAI management area. Effective September 29, 2016 through 2400 hrs, Alaska local time, December 31, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: In response to the President’s Executive Order 13563, “Improving Regulations and Regulatory Review,” the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is continuing its efforts to remove or revise outdated, duplicative, unnecessary, and inconsistent requirements in its safety and health standards. The current review, the fourth in this ongoing effort, is called Standards Improvement Project-Phase IV (SIP–IV). The goal of the proposed rulemaking is to reduce regulatory burden while maintaining or enhancing employees’ safety and health. SIP–IV focuses primarily on OSHA’s construction standards. Submit comments and hearing requests by December 5, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference Docket No. OSHA–2012–0007.)
