AGENCY: erjones on PRODPC74 with RULES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Commander, Fifth Coast Guard District, has approved a temporary deviation from the regulations governing the operation of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (AMTRAK) Bridge, at mile 1.0, across Susquehanna River at Havre de Grace, Maryland. This deviation allows the drawbridge to remain closedto-navigation beginning at 6 p.m. on March 30, 2007, until and including 6 p.m. on June 8, 2007, to facilitate structural repairs. DATES: This deviation is effective from 6 p.m. on March 30, 2007, until 6 p.m. on June 8, 2007. ADDRESSES: Materials referred to in this document are available for inspection or copying at Commander (dpb), Fifth Coast Guard District, Federal Building, 1st Floor, 431 Crawford Street, Portsmouth, VA 23704–5004 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Brazier, Bridge Management Specialist, Fifth Coast Guard District, at (757) 398–6422. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The AMTRAK Bridge, a swing-type drawbridge, has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 52 feet, above mean high water. AMTRAK, the bridge owner, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulation set out in 33 CFR 117.575 and to close the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:24 Mar 08, 2007 Jkt 211001 drawbridge to navigation to perform needed structural repairs. The repairs will include the renewal of 3,184 bridge timbers as well as the installation of new rail and expansion joints. To facilitate this work, the AMTRAK Bridge will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position beginning at 6 p.m. on March 30, 2007, until and including 6 p.m. on June 8, 2007. The Coast Guard has informed the known users of the waterway of the closure periods for the bridge so that these vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: February 28, 2007. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Chief, Bridge Administration Branch, Fifth Coast Guard District.

ACTION: Final regulations. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Secretary amends the regulations governing the Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) in 34 CFR part 280. These amendments allow the MSAP to use an approach similar to that in § 75.200 for establishing selection criteria in grant competitions. Under this approach the MSAP has the flexibility to use selection criteria from its program regulations, from the menu of general selection criteria in the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in § 75.210, based on statutory provisions in accordance with § 75.209, or from any combination of these. DATES: These regulations are effective April 9, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steven L. Brockhouse, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., room 4W229, Washington, DC 20202–5970. Telephone: (202) 260–2476 or via Internet: steve.brockhouse@ed.gov.

Individuals with disabilities may obtain this document in an alternative format (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, or computer diskette) on request to the contact person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. On August 22, 2006 the Secretary published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for these amendments in the Federal Register (71 FR 48866). In the preamble to the NPRM, the Secretary discussed on pages 48866 and 48867 the major changes proposed in that document to provide the MSAP with the flexibility to use different types of selection criteria when evaluating grant applications in a specific grant competition. These included the following: • Amending § 280.30 to give the Secretary the flexibility to use selection criteria from § 280.31, from the approved menu of general selection criteria in § 75.210 or from selection criteria based on statutory provisions governing the MSAP, established in accordance with § 75.209. • Amending § 280.31 to remove the mandatory point values from the selection criteria in this section of the MSAP regulations. There are no differences between the NPRM and these final regulations. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Analysis of Comments In response to the Secretary’s invitation in the NPRM, nine parties submitted comments on the proposed regulations. An analysis of the comments follows. We discuss substantive issues under the sections of the regulations to which they pertain. Generally, we do not address technical and other minor changes—and suggested changes the law does not authorize the Secretary to make. Section 280.30 How Does the Secretary Evaluate an Application? Comment: Two commenters expressed the opinion that the current selection criteria work effectively to address the MSAP’s statutory purpose and requirements, and consequently that a change in approach to permit the use of other selection criteria is not needed at this time. Discussion: The Department proposed these changes because we have been constrained in past MSAP competitions to using only the program selection criteria in § 280.31, whether or not their use continues to work well in the E:\FR\FM\09MRR1.SGM 09MRR1

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 MESA VERDE (LPD 19) 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: February 6, 2007.

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 MESA VERDE (LPD 19) 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),

[[Page 10604]]

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 different from that prescribed herein 
will adversely affect the vessel's ability to perform its military 
functions.
