Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 173 / Thursday, September 7, 2006 / Rules and Regulations This direct final rule is effective on 0901 UTC, November 23, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gary Rolf, Federal Aviation Administration, 222 West 7th Avenue, Box 14, Anchorage, AK 99513–7587; telephone number (907) 271–5898; fax: (907) 271– 2850; e-mail: gary.ctr.rolf@faa.gov. Internet address: http:// www.alaska.faa.gov/at. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA published this direct final rule with a request for comments in the Federal Register on Monday, July 17, 2006 (71 FR 40394). The FAA uses the direct final rulemaking procedure for noncontroversial actions where the FAA believes that there will be no adverse public comment. The direct final rule advised the public that no adverse comments were anticipated, and that unless a written adverse comment, or a written notice of intent to submit such an adverse comment, were received within the comment period, the regulation would become effective on November 23, 2006. One comment was received via telephone, in which the person voiced opposition to the name change. That opinion is not within the scope of this action, in that it does not address any aeronautical effect. His complaint is with the U.S. Army’s decision to change the name. This action essentially addresses the title of the airspace annoted in the the FAA Order 7400.8. No other adverse comments were received. This notice confirms that the rule will become effective on that date. DATES: Issued in Anchorage, AK, on August 28, 2006. Anthony M. Wylie, Director, Alaska Flight Service Information Office.

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy is amending its certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has determined that USS NEW ORLEANS (LPD 18) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship. The intended effect of this rule is to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply. DATES: Effective Date: August 18, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Commander Gregg A. Cervi, JAGC, U.S. Navy, Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law), Office of the Judge Advocate General, Department of the Navy, 1322 Patterson Ave., SE., Suite 3000, Washington Navy Yard, DC 20374–5066, telephone 202– 685–5040. Pursuant to the authority granted in 33 U.S.C. 1605, the Department of the Navy amends 32 CFR part 706. This amendment provides notice that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law), under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Navy, has certified that USS NEW ORLEANS (LPD 18) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with the following specific provisions of 72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship: Rule 27, pertaining to the placement of all-round task lights in a vertical line; Annex I, paragraph 3(a), pertaining to the horizontal distance between the forward and after masthead lights; and Annex I, paragraph 2(k), pertaining to the vertical separation between anchor lights. The Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has also certified that the lights involved are located in closest possible compliance with the applicable 72 COLREGS requirements. Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR Parts 296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment prior to adoption is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on technical findings that the placement of lights on this vessel in a manner differently from that prescribed SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\07SER1.SGM 07SER1 52742 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 173 / Thursday, September 7, 2006 / Rules and Regulations herein will adversely affect the vessel’s ability to perform its military functions.

ACTION: Final rule. ycherry on PROD1PC64 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is removing Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) regulations on the general guidelines for systematic declassification review of foreign government information. Following the issuance of Executive Order 12958 (Classified National Security Information) on April 17, 1995, and its amendment on March 25, 2003, the General Guidelines for Systematic Declassification Review of Foreign Government Information, became obsolete. The final rule will affect Federal agencies. EFFECTIVE DATE: Effective September 7, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: J. William Leonard, Director, ISOO, at 202–357–5400. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The authority citation for part 2002 is no longer valid with the revocation of E.O. 12356 following the issuance of E.O. 12958, as amended. Part 2002 prescribed the general guidelines for the systematic declassification review of classified foreign government information that was either received or classified by the United States Government or its agents, and incorporated into records determined by the Archivist of the United States to have permanent value. E.O. 12958, as amended, and its implementing regulation, 32 CFR parts 2001 and 2004 (ISOO Directive No. 1), provide for the declassification of classified foreign government information. As national security classified information, classified foreign government information is subject to automatic VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:07 Sep 06, 2006 Jkt 208001 declassification after 25 years unless specifically exempted. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), good cause exists for waiving the requirements of notice and opportunity for comment on the withdrawal of 32 CFR part 2002. Following the issuance of Executive Order 12958, as amended, these sections became obsolete. Therefore, because the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) has no authority to retain these sections, the process of notice and comment would be unproductive and is unnecessary. Additionally, it is in the public interest to remove an obsolete regulation. This rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 and has not been submitted for Office of Management and Budget review under that order. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, I certify that this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities because this rule applies to Federal agencies. This regulation does not have any federalism implications. List of Subjects in 32 CFR Part 2002 Archives and records, Declassification.

DATES: This deviation is effective from September 18, 2006 through November 16, 2006. ADDRESSES: Materials referred to in this document are available for inspection or copying at the First Coast Guard District, Bridge Branch Office, One South Street, New York, New York 10004, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The First Coast Guard District Bridge Branch Office maintains the public docket for this temporary deviation. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Judy Leung-Yee, Project Officer, First Coast Guard District, at (212) 668–7165. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. 1 Bridge across the Housatonic River, mile 3.5, at Stratford, Connecticut, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 32 feet at mean high water and 37 feet at mean low water. The existing operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.207(a). The bridge owner, Connecticut Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation to allow opening only one of the two moveable bascule spans for the passage of vessel traffic from September 18, 2006 through November 16, 2006, in order to facilitate scheduled bridge maintenance. Under this temporary deviation, the U.S. 1 Bridge need only open one of the two movable bascule spans for the passage of vessel traffic from September 18, 2006 through November 16, 2006. Two-span, full bridge, openings shall be provided upon request, if at least a three-day advance notice is given, by calling the number posted at the bridge. Otherwise, the bridge will continue to open during this temporary deviation in accordance with the schedule specified in 33 CFR 117.207(a). In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(c), this work will be performed with all due speed in order to return the bridge to normal operation as soon as possible. Should the bridge maintenance authorized by this temporary deviation be completed before the end of the effective period published in this notice, the Coast Guard will rescind the remainder of this temporary deviation, the bridge shall be returned to its normal operating schedule, and notice will be provided to the public.

32 CFR Part 706


Certifications and Exemptions Under the International Regulations 
for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972

AGENCY: Department of the Navy, DOD.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy is amending its certifications and 
exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing 
Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy 
Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has 
determined that USS NEW ORLEANS (LPD 18) is a vessel of the Navy which, 
due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with 
certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering with its 
special function as a naval ship. The intended effect of this rule is 
to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply.

DATES: Effective Date: August 18, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Commander Gregg A. Cervi, JAGC, U.S. 
Navy, Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime 
Law), Office of the Judge Advocate General, Department of the Navy, 
1322 Patterson Ave., SE., Suite 3000, Washington Navy Yard, DC 20374-
5066, telephone 202-685-5040.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authority granted in 33 
U.S.C. 1605, the Department of the Navy amends 32 CFR part 706. This 
amendment provides notice that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate 
General (Admiralty and Maritime Law), under authority delegated by the 
Secretary of the Navy, has certified that USS NEW ORLEANS (LPD 18) is a 
vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, 
cannot fully comply with the following specific provisions of 72 
COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship: 
Rule 27, pertaining to the placement of all-round task lights in a 
vertical line; Annex I, paragraph 3(a), pertaining to the horizontal 
distance between the forward and after masthead lights; and Annex I, 
paragraph 2(k), pertaining to the vertical separation between anchor 
lights. The Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and 
Maritime Law) has also certified that the lights involved are located 
in closest possible compliance with the applicable 72 COLREGS 
requirements.
    Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR Parts 
296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment 
prior to adoption is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public 
interest since it is based on technical findings that the placement of 
lights on this vessel in a manner differently from that prescribed

[[Page 52742]]

herein will adversely affect the vessel's ability to perform its 
military functions.
