In that final rule, the FAA inadvertently changed a paragraph reference. The intent of this action is to correct the error in the regulation to ensure the requirement is clear and accurate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 9, 1996, the FAA published in the Federal Register (61 FR 5147) a final rule that amended § 23.573(b) by removing the reference ‘‘§ 23.571(c)’’ and adding the reference ‘‘§ 23.571(a)(3)’’ in its place. Paragraph (a)(3) of § 23.571 does not exist, and the reference to § 23.571(c) should have remained. This document corrects § 23.573(b) to reflect the correct paragraph reference, § 23.571(c). This correction will not impose any additional requirements. Technical Amendment This technical amendment will correct § 23.573(b) to properly reference § 23.571(c). Justification for Immediate Adoption Because this action corrects an incorrect paragraph reference, the FAA finds that notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for making this rule effective upon publication.

Notice of temporary deviation from regulations. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a temporary deviation from the regulations governing the operation of the Washington Street S136 Bridge, across the Norwalk River, mile 0.0, at Norwalk, Connecticut. While in effect, this deviation allows the bridge owner to open only one of the two moveable spans for bridge openings. Vessels that require a full two-span bridge opening will be required to provide at least a twelve-hour advance notice by calling the bridge operator. This deviation is necessary to facilitate scheduled bridge maintenance. DATES: This deviation is effective from April 1, 2008 through April 30, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Judy Leung-Yee, Project Officer, First Coast Guard District, at (212) 668–7165. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Washington Street S136 Bridge, across the Norwalk River, mile 0.0, at Norwalk, Connecticut, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 9 feet at mean high water and 16 feet at mean low water. The existing regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.217(a). The owner of the bridge, Connecticut Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation to facilitate scheduled structural maintenance and painting at the bridge. In order to perform the structural and bridge painting operations, one of the two moveable spans must remain in the closed position in order to erect paint containment and perform the required bridge maintenance. We issued a temporary deviation (USCG–2007–0185; 73 FR 1273, Jan. 8, 2008) authorizing single leaf operation for bridge painting effective from January 2, 2008 through March 31, 2008. On March 13, 2008, the bridge owner requested that the single leaf operation for bridge painting continue through the end of April 2008, to allow completion of this project. Under this second temporary deviation the Washington Street S136 Bridge across the Norwalk River, mile 0.0, at Norwalk, Connecticut, need open only one of the two moveable spans for bridge openings from April 1, 2008 through April 30, 2008. Vessels requiring a full two-span bridge opening may do so provided that they give at least a twelve-hour advance notice to the bridge operator by calling (203) 866– 7691. 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, and the bridge shall be returned to its normal operating schedule. Notice of the above action shall be provided to the public in the Local Notice to Mariners and the Federal Register, where practicable. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the bridge 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:23 Apr 10, 2008 Jkt 214001 Dated: April 1, 2008.

AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: This document adopts, without change, the interim final rule that was published in the Federal Register on June 22, 2007, addressing data breaches of sensitive personal information that is processed or maintained by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This final rule implements certain provisions of the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006. The regulations prescribe the mechanisms for taking action in response to a data breach of sensitive personal information. DATES: Effective Date: April 11, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jonelle Lewis, Office of Information Protection and Risk Management (005R), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20420. Telephone: (202) 461–6400. This is not a toll-free number. On June 22, 2007, VA published an interim final rule in the Federal Register (72 FR 34395). The interim final rule addressed data breaches of sensitive personal information that is processed or maintained by VA. This final rule implements 38 U.S.C. 5724 and 5727, which were enacted as part of Title IX of Public Law 109–461, the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006. We provided a 60-day comment period that ended August 21, 2007. We received no comments. Based on the rationale set forth in the interim final rule, we adopt the provisions of the interim final rule as a final rule without any changes. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Administrative Procedure Act This document, without change, affirms the amendment made by the interim final rule that is already in effect. The Secretary of Veterans Affairs PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 19747 concluded that, under 5 U.S.C. 553, there was good cause to dispense with the opportunity for prior comment with respect to this rule. The Secretary found that it was unnecessary to delay this regulation for the purpose of soliciting prior public comment based on the statutory mandate in 38 U.S.C. 5724 to publish the amendment as an interim final rule. Nevertheless, the Secretary invited public comment on the interim final rule but did not receive any comments. Executive Order 12866 Executive Order 12866 directs agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety, and other advantages; distributive impacts; and equity). The Executive Order classifies a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ requiring review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), as any regulatory action that is likely to result in a rule that may: (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or tribal governments or communities; (2) create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency; (3) materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients thereof; or (4) raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the President’s priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive Order. The economic, interagency, budgetary, legal, and policy implications of this rule have been examined and it has been determined to be a significant regulatory action under the Executive Order because it is likely to result in a rule that may raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the President’s priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive Order. Unfunded Mandates The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 requires, at 2 U.S.C. 1532, that agencies prepare an assessment of anticipated costs and benefits before issuing any rule that may result in expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more (adjusted annually for inflation) in any E:\FR\FM\11APR1.SGM 11APR1

SUMMARY: The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a

Norwalk, Connecticut. While in effect, this deviation allows the bridge 
owner to open only one of the two moveable spans for bridge openings. 
Vessels that require a full two-span bridge opening will be required to 
provide at least a twelve-hour advance notice by calling the bridge 
operator. This deviation is necessary to facilitate scheduled bridge

telephone number (212) 668-7165. 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 Washington Street S136 Bridge, across 
the Norwalk River, mile 0.0, at Norwalk, Connecticut, has a vertical 
clearance in the closed position of 9 feet at mean high water and 16 
feet at mean low water. The existing regulations are listed at 33 CFR 
117.217(a).
    The owner of the bridge, Connecticut Department of Transportation, 
requested a temporary deviation to facilitate scheduled structural 
maintenance and painting at the bridge.
    In order to perform the structural and bridge painting operations, 
one of the two moveable spans must remain in the closed position in 
order to erect paint containment and perform the required bridge 
maintenance.
    We issued a temporary deviation (USCG-2007-0185; 73 FR 1273, Jan. 
8, 2008) authorizing single leaf operation for bridge painting 
effective from January 2, 2008 through March 31, 2008. On March 13, 
2008, the bridge owner requested that the single leaf operation for 
bridge painting continue through the end of April 2008, to allow 
completion of this project.
    Under this second temporary deviation the Washington Street S136 
Bridge across the Norwalk River, mile 0.0, at Norwalk, Connecticut, 
need open only one of the two moveable spans for bridge openings from 
April 1, 2008 through April 30, 2008. Vessels requiring a full two-span 
bridge opening may do so provided that they give at least a twelve-hour 
advance notice to the bridge operator by calling (203) 866-7691.
    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, and the bridge shall be returned to its normal 
operating schedule. Notice of the above action shall be provided to the 
public in the Local Notice to Mariners and the Federal Register, where 
practicable.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the bridge 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.
