These proposed amendments to Regulation J are necessary to implement the proposed method for posting debits and credits to banks' Federal Reserve accounts to measure daylight overdrafts under the Federal Reserve Policy on Payment System Risk (PSR policy), as proposed in Docket No. OP-1472, elsewhere in the Federal Register.

Endangered Fish and Wildlife; Final Rule To Remove the Sunset Provision of the Final Rule Implementing Vessel Speed Restrictions To Reduce the Threat of Ship Collisions With North Atlantic Right Whales
NMFS is eliminating the expiration date (or ``sunset clause'') contained in regulations requiring vessel speed restrictions to reduce the likelihood of lethal vessel collisions with North Atlantic right whales. The regulations restrict vessel speeds to no more than 10 knots for vessels 65 ft (19.8 m) or greater in overall length in certain locations and at certain times of the year along the east coast of the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. The purpose of the regulation is to reduce the likelihood of deaths and serious injuries to endangered North Atlantic right whales that result from collisions with ships. The speed regulations will expire December 9, 2013, unless the sunset clause is removed. With this final rule, NMFS is removing the rule's sunset provision. All other aspects of the rule remain in place until circumstances warrant further changes to the rule.

Glycine From the People's Republic of China: Final Rescission of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2012
On August 23, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published its Preliminary Rescission for the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review March 1, 2012, through August 31, 2012, for Hebei Donghua Jiheng Fine Chemical Company, Ltd. (Donghua Fine Chemical).\1\ For these final results, we continue to find that, because Donghua Fine Chemical appears to be affiliated with PRC-companies that have had prior shipments of subject merchandise to the United States, it has therefore failed to certify to its first U.S. entry, U.S. shipment, and U.S. sale, as required under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (C). We also continue to find that Donghua Fine Chemical failed to report its first U.S. entry and/or U.S. shipment within one year of its request for a new shipper review, thus failing to satisfy the deadline requirements of 19 CFR 351.214(c). Because Donghua Fine Chemical's request did not satisfy the regulatory requirements for a new shipper review, we are rescinding the new shipper for Donghua Fine Chemical.
