DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has requested that the SR 529 Bridges across the Snohomish River remain closed to vessel traffic to facilitate heavy maintenance and equipment upgrades on the bridges. The SR 529 Bridges cross the Snohomish River at mile 3.6 and provide 38 feet of vertical clearance above mean high water elevation while in the closed position. Vessels which do not require a bridge opening may continue to transit beneath the bridges during this closure period. Under normal conditions the SR 529 Bridges crossing the Snohomish River operate in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1059(c) which requires advance notification of 1 hour when a bridge opening is needed. This deviation period is from 8 a.m. on January 21, 2013, through 6 p.m. March 15, 2013. The deviation allows the SR 529 Bridges crossing the Snohomish River to remain in the closed position and need not open for maritime traffic from 8 a.m. on January 21, 2013, through 6 p.m. March 15, 2013. The bridges shall operate in accordance to 33 CFR 117.1059 at all other times. Waterway usage on the Snohomish River includes vessels ranging from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. Mariners will be notified and kept informed of the bridges’ operational status via the construction contractor performing the maintenance as well as via the Coast Guard Notice to Mariners publication and Broadcast Notice to Mariners as appropriate. The bridges will not be able to open during this maintenance activity because the lifting mechanisms will be inoperable. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridges must return to their regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Shark River, Avon, NJ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: January 7, 2013. Randall D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The New Jersey Transit, owner and operator of the Shark River Railroad Bridge across the Shark River (South Channel), mile 0.9, at Avon, NJ, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.751, to accommodate machinery replacement for the Shark River Bridge. SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\17JAR1.SGM 17JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 12 / Thursday, January 17, 2013 / Rules and Regulations The Shark River Railroad Bridge across the Shark River, mile 0.9, is a bascule lift Bridge, in Avon Township, NJ, and has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 8 feet, above mean high water. Because the draw of the Shark River Bridge operates in unison with the S71 Bridge, mile 0.8 across Shark River at Avon Township, NJ, the draw of the S71 Bridge will also be restricted under this deviation. The S71 Bridge is also a bascule lift bridge and has a vertical clearance of 13 feet. The current schedules for both the Shark River Railroad Bascule Bridge operating regulations are set out in 33 CFR 117.751. Under normal operating conditions, the draws of S71 bridge, mile 0.8 and the railroad bridge, mile 0.9, both at Avon, operate as one unit. To facilitate machinery replacement, the above mentioned drawbridges will be maintained in the closed-tonavigation position from 12:01 a.m. Monday February 25, 2013, to 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday March 6, 2013. The bridges normally open several times a day for transiting vessels. Coordination with the waterway users has been completed. The Coast Guard will inform all users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impacts caused by the temporary deviation. Vessels able to pass under the spans when closed may transit under the drawbridges while they are in the closed position. Mariners are advised to proceed with caution. There are no alternate routes for vessels and the bridge will not be able to open in the event of an emergency. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation.

In this Order, we reconsider and clarify certain aspects of the USF/ICC Transformation Order, 76 FR 73830, November 29, 2011, in response to various petitions for reconsideration and/or clarification. The USF/ICC Transformation Order represents a careful balancing of policy goals, equities, and budgetary constraints. This balance was required in order to advance the fundamental goals of universal service and intercarrier compensation reform within a defined budget while simultaneously providing sufficient transitions for stakeholders to adapt. 2. As a preliminary matter regarding our review of a number of the specific issues discussed below, we observe that, under Commission rules, if a petition for reconsideration simply repeats arguments that were previously considered and rejected in the proceeding, it will not likely warrant reconsideration. 3. With this standard in mind, we take several limited actions stemming from reconsideration petitions. Specifically, this Order grants in part petitions related to the financial reporting obligations of eligible telecommunications carriers (ETCs) that are privately-held rate-of-return companies. This Order also provides additional guidance and clarifications regarding the standard and process for requests for waiver of our universal service reforms. II. Financial Reporting Requirements for Privately Held Rate-of-Return Carriers 4. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission required all privately-held rate of return carriers to provide a report on their financial condition and operations and provided two options for doing so: (1) File a copy of the carrier’s audited financial statement; or (2) file a copy of the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utility Service (RUS) Form 479, a financial reporting requirement for carriers that borrow money from RUS. The USF/ICC Transformation Order requires this information to be filed with the Commission, the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), and the relevant state commission, relevant authority in a U.S. Territory, or Tribal governments, as appropriate. Only one party commented generally on the NPRM proposal to require audited financial statements certified by an independent CPA, and no privately held carrier opposed the proposal at that time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The New Jersey Transit, owner and operator 
of the Shark River Railroad Bridge across the Shark River (South 
Channel), mile 0.9, at Avon, NJ, has requested a temporary deviation 
from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.751, to 
accommodate machinery replacement for the Shark River Bridge.

[[Page 3837]]

    The Shark River Railroad Bridge across the Shark River, mile 0.9, 
is a bascule lift Bridge, in Avon Township, NJ, and has a vertical 
clearance in the closed position of 8 feet, above mean high water.
    Because the draw of the Shark River Bridge operates in unison with 
the S71 Bridge, mile 0.8 across Shark River at Avon Township, NJ, the 
draw of the S71 Bridge will also be restricted under this deviation. 
The S71 Bridge is also a bascule lift bridge and has a vertical 
clearance of 13 feet.
    The current schedules for both the Shark River Railroad Bascule 
Bridge operating regulations are set out in 33 CFR 117.751. Under 
normal operating conditions, the draws of S71 bridge, mile 0.8 and the 
railroad bridge, mile 0.9, both at Avon, operate as one unit.
    To facilitate machinery replacement, the above mentioned 
drawbridges will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position 
from 12:01 a.m. Monday February 25, 2013, to 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday 
March 6, 2013. The bridges normally open several times a day for 
transiting vessels. Coordination with the waterway users has been 
completed.
    The Coast Guard will inform all users of the waterway through our 
Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners of the closure periods for the 
bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any 
impacts caused by the temporary deviation. Vessels able to pass under 
the spans when closed may transit under the drawbridges while they are 
in the closed position. Mariners are advised to proceed with caution. 
There are no alternate routes for vessels and the bridge will not be 
able to open in the event of an emergency.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
