DATES: This rule is effective April 24, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose This rule enables the Washington State Department of Transportation, the owner of the drawbridges across the Chehalis, Hoquiam, and Wishkah Rivers at Grays Harbor, Washington, to reduce the staffing of the Chehalis Bridge, which currently maintains a radio watch during the night hours when advance notice is required for openings of the draws of all of those bridges. One-hour notice is currently required for openings of the Chehalis River Bridge from one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise and for all openings of the Simpson Avenue Bridge, Hoquiam River mile 0.5, the Riverside Avenue Bridge, Hoquiam River mile 0.9, the Heron Street Bridge, Wishkah River PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 12551 mile 0.2, and the Wishkah Street Bridge, Wishkah River, mile 0.4. The reduction in staffing is appropriate because the draws of those bridges rarely have to been opened during the period affected. In fact, during the entire year of 2007 only 50 openings were requested for the bridges between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., which equates to an average of less than one opening per week during those hours. Furthermore, most of the requests were made by telephone. Whenever operators are at the Chehalis River Bridge a normal radio watch will be maintained. Discussion of Comments and Changes Two comments were received from parties affected by this rule. Both comments appeared to misunderstand some of the provisions of the rule. Specifically, the rule requires notice of one hour rather than four hours as one commenter believed. Another commenter appeared to believe that a radio watch would never be maintained under the rule, but the rule provides for a normal radio watch to be maintained whenever operators are present. The commenters’ objections were resolved as noted and no changes were made to the rule based on the comments received. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. We reached this conclusion because the draws of the bridges rarely have to been opened during the period affected, the draws will still be opened in a reasonable amount of time, and most vessel operators already use the telephone to request openings of the draws. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a E:\FR\FM\25MRR1.SGM 25MRR1
