The three Mississippi River locks in Minneapolis, MN (Upper St. Anthony Falls, Lower St. Anthony Falls, and Lock and Dam 1) currently operate 19 hours per day/7 days per week during the navigation season. This level of service follows the guidance from the Corps Inland Marine Transportation System (IMTS) Board of Directors. Section 2010 of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 (WRRDA) directed the Secretary of the Army to close the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam located on the Mississippi River at river mile 853.9 no later than 1 year after the enactment date of WRRDA 2014. With the expected closing of the Upper St. Anthony Falls lock, it is anticipated the remaining two Minneapolis locks will have less than 500 commercial lockages per year. To meet IMTS guidance, it is proposed Lower St. Anthony Falls and Lock and Dam 1 transition to one 10-hour shift per day/7 days per week during the 2015 navigation season and beyond. The navigation season on the Upper Mississippi normally begins in March, depending on river conditions, and wraps up by the end of November. Pool levels will not be affected by change of operating hours.

Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
This interim final rule establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and prescribes procedures for investigating and adjudicating eligibility to hold the DoD Common Access Card (CAC). The CAC is the DoD personal identity verification (PIV) credential. Individuals appropriately sponsored for a DoD CAC must be investigated and adjudicated in accordance with this part. Prior to this rule, DoD components have been implementing investigative and adjudicative requirements for Homeland Security Presidential Directive12 (HSPD-12) based solely on broad guidance issued by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). This interim final rule elaborates on OPM guidance for component adjudicators who determine, based on review of investigative case files, whether to grant CAC eligibility to individuals who require: Physical access to DoD facilities or non-DoD facilities on behalf of DoD; logical access to information systems (whether on site or remotely); or remote access to DoD networks that use only the CAC logon for user authentication. The adjudicator's role is discussed further in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. The interim final rule provides the adjudicator with conditions that may be disqualifying and circumstances relevant to the determination of whether there is a reasonable basis to believe there is an unacceptable risk.

This study will be reviewed in the closed portion of the meeting. This portion of the meeting is properly closed in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(1), which permits Federal Advisory Committee meetings to be closed which are likely to ``disclose matters that are (A) specifically authorized under criteria established by an Executive Order to be kept secret in the interest of national defense or foreign policy and (B) in fact properly classified pursuant to such Executive Order.'' 2. Decisive Army Strategic and Expeditionary ManeuverThis study will identify challenges in 2025 that effect the Army's ability to conduct strategic and expeditionary maneuver; explore options in joint air- and sea-basing, commercial capabilities and partnering opportunities to improve the Army's ability to maneuver; and identify technologies and other innovations that could improve the Army's strategic and expeditionary maneuver capabilities. This study will be reviewed in the open portion of the meeting. 3. Talent Management and the Next Training RevolutionThis study will develop a concept of talent management that the Army should use to describe individuals and teams through 2030; examine current technologies and trends employed in talent management, to include recruiting, training, and retention; and develop a roadmap for the employment of promising talent management systems, associated technologies, and best practices, taking into consideration the unique nature of military service. This study will be reviewed in the open portion of the meeting.

TRICARE Reserve Select (TRS) is a premium-based TRICARE health plan available for purchase worldwide by qualified members of the Ready Reserve and by qualified survivors of TRS members. TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) is a premium-based TRICARE dental plan available for purchase worldwide by qualified Service members. This proposed rule revises requirements and procedures for the TRS program to specify the appropriate actuarial basis for calculating premiums in addition to other minor clarifying administrative changes. For a member who is involuntarily separated from the Selected Reserve under other than adverse conditions this proposed rule provides a time-limited exception that allows TRS coverage in effect to continue for up to 180 days after the date on which the member is separated from the Selected Reserve and TDP coverage in effect to continue for no less than 180 days after the separation date. It also expands early TRICARE eligibility for certain Reserve Component members from a maximum of 90 days to a maximum of 180 days prior to activation in support of a contingency for more than 30 days.
