SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The North Carolina Department of Transportation, who owns and operates this vertical lift bridge, has requested a temporary deviation to conduct the bi-annual trunnion inspection. Under the regular operating schedule, the bridge opens on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.5, except that under 33 CFR 117.823, the draw need not open for the passage of vessels from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on the second Saturday of July and from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the first or second Sunday of November every year. The Cape Fear River Memorial Bridge, at mile 26.8, at Wilmington, NC, has vertical clearances in the open and closed positions of 135 feet and 65 feet above mean high water, respectively. Under this temporary deviation, the drawbridge will be closed to navigation beginning each day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., on March 11, 2013, through March 14, 2013; however, vessel openings will be provided if at least two hours advance notice is given. At all other times, the drawbridge opens on signal. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Cape Fear River. The drawbridge will be able to open in the event of an emergency. Typical vessel traffic on the Cape Fear River includes a variety of vessels from freighters, tug and barge traffic, and recreational vessels. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may continue to do so at anytime. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with commercial and recreational waterway users. 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. 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. Dated: January 30, 2013. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

Notice of temporary deviation from regulation. AGENCY: ACTION: The U.S. Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the regulation governing the operation of the General Edwards Bridge, mile 1.7, across the Saugus River between Lynn and Revere, Massachusetts. The deviation is necessary to facilitate architectural rehabilitation of the bridge towers. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed position to allow scaffolding be attached to the bascule lift span to access work area.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The General Edwards Bridge, across the Saugus River, mile 1.7, between Lynn and Revere, Massachusetts, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 27 feet at mean high water and 36 feet at mean low water. The drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.618(b). The waterway users are recreational vessels of various sizes. The bridge rarely opens March through April since the recreational vessels that transit this waterway are normally in winter storage. The bridge has opened two SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 times on average since 2002 during this time period. The owner of the bridge, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation from the regulations to help facilitate rehabilitation of the bridge towers that requires scaffolding be attached to the bascule lift span to access the work area. Under this temporary deviation the General Edwards Bridge may remain in the closed position from March 1, 2013, through April 27, 2013. Vessels that can pass under the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The Coast Guard believes that this temporary deviation meets the reasonable needs of navigation because the recreational users that normally use this bridge are recreational vessels that do not operate during the winter months when this deviation will be in effect. 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. Dated: January 29, 2012. Gary Kassof, Bridge Program Manager, First Coast Guard District.

Section 230 of the Act similarly amended 38 U.S.C. 7332, which governs the confidentiality of VA records relating to drug abuse, alcoholism or alcohol abuse, infection with the human immunodeficiency virus, or sickle cell anemia, by adding a subparagraph (G) to subsection (b)(2), which sets forth exceptions to section 7332’s privacy protections. Subparagraph (G) authorizes VA to release this protected information: [t]o a State controlled substance monitoring program, including a program approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services under section 399O of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 280g– 3), to the extent necessary to prevent misuse and diversion of prescription medicines. State controlled substance monitoring programs, as named in the Act, are commonly referred to as State prescription drug monitoring programs or PDMPs. States implement and maintain the PDMP databases on controlled substances prescribed and filled by pharmacies within their borders to achieve public health and law enforcement objectives.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Canadian Pacific Railway requested a 
temporary deviation for the Sabula Railroad Drawbridge, across the 
Upper Mississippi River, mile 535.0, at Sabula, Iowa to remain in the 
closed-to-navigation position while a bent shaft and damaged gear 
assembly are replaced. The closure period will start at 7 a.m., 
February 11, 2013, and last until 7 a.m., February 25, 2013.
    Once the bent shaft and gear assembly are removed, the swing span 
will not be able to open, even for emergencies, until the replacement 
of the shaft and gear assembly is installed.
    The Sabula Railroad Drawbridge currently operates in accordance 
with 33 CFR 117.5, which states the general requirement that 
drawbridges shall open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels 
when a request to open is given in accordance with the subpart. In 
order to facilitate the needed bridge work, the drawbridge must be kept 
in the closed-to-navigation position.
    There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section 
of the Upper Mississippi River.
    The Sabula Railroad Drawbridge, in the closed-to-navigation 
position, provides a vertical clearance of 18.1 feet above normal pool. 
Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and 
recreational watercraft. This temporary deviation has been coordinated 
with the waterway users. No objections were received.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective
