Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with RULES Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment.

Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366–9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA), who owns and operates this single leaf bascule drawbridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to facilitate the cleaning and painting of the structure. Under the regular operating schedule, the bridge opens on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.569(c) if at least five hours advance notice is given. The S12 Bridge across Pocomoke River, mile 29.9 at Snow Hill MD, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of two feet above mean high water and five feet above mean low water. Under this temporary deviation, the contractor has requested to maintain the bridge in the closed position to vessels from 7 a.m. on March 15, 2011 through 11:59 p.m. on May 30, 2011, to allow for the potential delays caused by anticipated seasonal weather patterns that will interfere with environmental conditions required for sandblasting and painting of the bridge. Bridge opening data supplied by SHA and reviewed by the Coast Guard revealed vessel openings of the draw span from March 2010 through May 2010. Specifically, the drawbridge opened for vessels a total of 23, 13, and 25 times during the months of March 2010 through May 2010, respectively. We also contacted a nearby canoe shop owner who indicated that he can work around the restrictions. The Coast Guard has coordinated the restrictions with the local users of the waterway and will inform other users through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Pocomoke River and the drawbridge will be able to open in the event of an emergency.

The alternative path around Terminal Island will be available for routine and emergency navigation. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with commercial and recreational waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels that can transit the bridge, while in the closed-to-navigation position, may continue to do so at any time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Maryland State Highway Administration 
(SHA), who owns and operates this single leaf bascule drawbridge, has 
requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to 
facilitate the cleaning and painting of the structure. Under the 
regular operating schedule, the bridge opens on signal as required by 
33 CFR 117.569(c) if at least five hours advance notice is given.
    The S12 Bridge across Pocomoke River, mile 29.9 at Snow Hill MD, 
has a vertical clearance in the closed position of two feet above mean

deviation, the contractor has requested to maintain the bridge in the

environmental conditions required for sandblasting and painting of the 
bridge.
    Bridge opening data supplied by SHA and reviewed by the Coast Guard

2010. Specifically, the drawbridge opened for vessels a total of 23, 
13, and 25 times during the months of March 2010 through May 2010,
