The Isabel S. Holmes Bridge operating regulations are set out in 33 CFR 117.829(a).

Under this temporary deviation, the drawbridge will be allowed to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 10, 2012 to accommodate the 100 year Anniversary of the Girl Scout Program Ceremonial walk. Vessels able to pass under the closed span may transit under the drawbridge while it is in the closed position. Mariners are advised to proceed with caution.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: This document amends the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) ‘‘Medical’’ regulations to add rules relating to medical foster homes. Prior to this final rule, VA’s medical foster home program had, whenever possible and appropriate, relied upon regulations governing community residential care facilities; however, those regulations did not cover all aspects of medical foster homes, which provide community based care in a smaller, residential facility and to a more medically complex and disabled population. This final rule reflects current VA policy and practice, and generally conforms to industry standards and expectations. DATES: Effective date: March 5, 2012. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this rule as of March 5, 2012.

(This is not a toll free number.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Many veterans who are disabled due to complex chronic disease or traumatic injury may be unable to live safely and independently, or may have health care needs that exceed the capabilities of their families. Many of these veterans are placed in nursing homes. Others, with the proper support, can continue to live in a residential setting and delay, or totally avoid, the need for nursing home care. VA’s community residential care program, specifically authorized by 38 U.S.C. 1730 and implemented at 38 CFR 17.61 through 17.72, has provided health care supervision to these veterans. A medical foster home is a specific type of community residential care facility that provides home-based care to a small number of residents with serious chronic disease and disability. A medical foster home provides a greater level of care than a community residential care facility (and in this respect a medical foster home is more analogous to a nursing home), while allowing veterans to live in a home-like SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\02FER1.SGM 02FER1
