Therefore, in accordance with Executive Order 13132, ‘‘Federalism,’’ the Department has determined that this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Attorney General, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b), has reviewed this rule and, by approving it, certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it pertains to personnel and administrative matters affecting the Department. Further, a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required for this final rule because the Department was not required to publish a general notice of proposed rulemaking for this matter. This rule is not a major rule as defined by section 251 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), 5 U.S.C. 804. This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of United States-based enterprises to compete with foreignbased enterprises in domestic and export markets. Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563 This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with Executive Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review,’’ section 1(b), Principles of Regulation, and with Executive Order 13563, ‘‘Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review.’’ This rule is limited to agency organization, management, or personnel matters as described by Executive Order 12866, section 3(d)(3) and, therefore, is not a ‘‘regulation’’ or ‘‘rule’’ as defined by that Executive Order. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES interests of parties, although [they] may alter the manner in which the parties present themselves or their viewpoints to the agency’’) (quoting Batterton v. Marshall, 648 F.2d 694, 707 (D.C. Cir. 1980) (internal quotation marks omitted)). The revisions to the regulations in 28 CFR Part 0 are purely a matter of agency organization, procedure, and practice that will not affect individual rights and obligations. This rule does not expand the government’s ability as a matter of law to effectuate forfeitures; it simply authorizes the Director of ATF to effectuate such forfeitures. Internal delegations of authority such as in this final rule are ‘‘rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice’’ under the APA. In addition, this rule is exempt from the usual requirements of prior notice and comment and a 30-day delay in effective date because, as an internal delegation of authority, it relates to a matter of agency management or personnel. See 5 U.S.D. 553(a)(2). This action pertains to agency management, personnel, and organization and does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of nonagency parties. Accordingly, it is not a rule for purposes of the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) owns and operates the State Route 47 (George Redding) bascule bridge across Grassy Sound Channel along the NJICW, mile 108.9, in Wildwood, NJ. The bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 25 feet above mean high water. The current operating regulations are outlined at 33 CFR 117.5, which require the bridge to open when a request is made or signal to open is given. NJDOT requested a temporary deviation to the existing regulations for the State Route 47 (George Redding) Bridge to facilitate necessary repairs. The repairs will consist of the replacement of bridge barrier gates. These gates prevent vehicles from driving across the bridge when it is in the open position. Under this deviation, the bascule spans of the drawbridge will be maintained in the closed-tonavigation position from 6 a.m. through 10 p.m. on March 1, 2014 and again from 6 a.m. through 10 p.m. on March 8, 2014. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies during either of the closure periods. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The Atlantic Ocean is an alternate route for vessels with mast heights greater than 25 feet. Bridge opening data, supplied by NJDOT, revealed that the bridge opened for vessels 20 and 30 times during the months of March 2012 and 2013 respectively. The majority of these opening requests occurred before 6 a.m. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:49 Mar 03, 2014 Jkt 232001 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The bridge owner, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), is currently conducting maintenance on the Route 223 Swing Bridge over Milford Haven Inlet near Hudgins, Virginia. On August 8, 2013, Coast Guard published a temporary deviation (78 FR 48314) allowing the bridge to remain closed-tonavigation position for four 24-hour non-consecutive periods to accommodate necessary maintenance. The closures dates were announced in the local and broadcast notice to mariners seven days in advance. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the project has fallen behind and VDOT has requested for an additional deviation to run simultaneously with the aforementioned deviation in order to facilitate the supplemental rehabilitation work that includes painting the bridge. This deviation will allow the bridge to be in the closed-tonavigation position every day from 6 p.m. through 4 a.m. the following morning. The evening closures will commence on February 24, 2014 and continue through March 31, 2014 when both deviations will end. Under the regular operating schedule for the Route 223 Swing Bridge, the bridge opens on signal, as required by 33 CFR § 117.5 and opens up to ten times every day for commercial fishing vessels and Coast Guard vessels at Station Milford Haven. The 24-hour temporary deviation discussed in the published temporary deviation (78 FR 48314) will not be impacted by this nighttime temporary deviation for painting. The vertical clearance of the swing bridge in the closed-to-navigation position is 12 feet at mean high water. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time and are advised to proceed with caution. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies during any of the closure periods. The southern approach to Gywnn’s Island by Sandy Point, VA can be used as an alternate route for vessels able to transit in water depths of 2 feet. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact 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.
