Background and Purpose The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has requested that the operating regulation of the S433 pontoon span bridge, located on Liberty Bayou at mile 2.0 in Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, be changed in order to make more efficient use of operating resources. Currently, the draw of the S433 Bridge opens on signal, except that from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the draw opens on signal if at least 12 hours notice is given, as required by 33 CFR 117.469. The Coast Guard previously published a notice of proposed rulemaking [CGD08–06–10] on May 4, 2006 (86 FR 26290). The proposed rule would have changed the regulation governing the operation of the (S433) pontoon span bridge across Liberty Bayou, mile 2.0, at Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. The rule, as previously proposed, would have changed the notice required for an opening from 12 hours to 4 hours. A PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 it N/A for t = * N/A final rule for that proposed change was not published. Subsequently, the bridge owner has requested that the notice for an opening be changed so that the bridge will open on signal, except that from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., the bridge will open on signal if at least 2 hours notice is given. A Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking [CGD08–06–010], is being issued in conjunction with this Temporary Deviation to obtain public comments. The Coast Guard will evaluate public comments from this Test Deviation and the above referenced Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to determine if a permanent special drawbridge operating regulation is warranted. 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: November 6, 2007. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator. [FR Doc.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is revising its regulations on scheduling Federal records to make future records schedules and certain existing approved records schedules applicable to series of records regardless of the medium in which the records are created and maintained. Both the agency (in submitting the schedule) and NARA (in approving the schedule) would be able to specify that certain disposition authorities are valid only for the current media/format of the records. Although agencies currently are permitted to submit ‘‘media-neutral’’ records schedules, most existing records schedules were developed for hard-copy (usually paper) recordkeeping systems PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 64153 and do not state that they apply to records in other formats. Therefore, agencies have been required to submit new schedules when they convert from a hard-copy system of records, including special media records (such as still pictures, aerial photography, maps, charts, drawings, motion picture film, analog videotape, and analog sound recordings), to an electronic system. This rule makes all new schedules media neutral unless otherwise specified and allows schedules previously approved for hard copy records to be applied to electronic versions of the files if certain conditions are met. The new rule will reduce the workload for both agencies and NARA, allowing them to focus resources on critical records management needs. DATES: This rule is effective December 17, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laurence Brewer, Director, Life Cycle Management Division, at 301–837–1539 or via fax at 301–837–3697. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On November 19, 2004, at 69 FR 67692, NARA published a proposed rule making schedules media neutral. In response, we received comments from five Federal agencies and from a private firm that does records management work for Federal agencies. Four public interest groups submitted comments on a related proposed records disposition schedule modifying the General Records Schedules (GRS) to implement the proposed rule insofar as the rule applies to previously approved schedules. The notice inviting public comment on the proposed disposition schedule N1– GRS–05–1 was published on November 16, 2004 (69 FR 67182). We considered the comments on both the proposed rule and the proposed disposition schedule in developing this final rule. Discussion of Comments Received on the Proposed Rule All five agencies and the consulting firm generally endorsed NARA’s proposals regarding media neutrality. However, three of the agencies and the consulting firm felt that the new regulations should allow agencies more than 45 days to notify NARA when they convert previously scheduled permanent records to an electronic format. One of these agencies suggested allowing agencies up to 90 days, while another agency suggested that NARA require annual updates. The third agency that addressed this issue suggested that the regulation require notification ‘‘as soon as possible.’’ The E:\FR\FM\15NOR1.SGM 15NOR1
