FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The BNSF Railway Company requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule on the the Galveston Causeway Railroad Vertical Lift Bridge across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, mile 357.2 west of Harvey Locks, at Galveston, Galveston County, Texas. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 8.0 feet above mean high water, elevation 3.0 feet NAVD88, in the closed-to-navigation position and 73 feet above mean high water in the opento-navigation position. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, the draw shall open on signal for the passage of vessels. This temporary deviation allows the vertical lift bridge to remain closed to navigation from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m., March 24 through March 28, 2014. The bridge will operate normally at all other times. During this deviation, the bridge owner will complete periodic maintenance requirements and grease all operating cables of the bridge. Navigation at the site of the bridge consists mainly of tows with barges and some recreational pleasure craft. Based on known waterway users, as well as coordination with those waterway users, it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on these vessels. No alternate routes are available. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35, 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: February 26, 2014. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator.

The interim final rule authorized VA to disclose certain types of information about veterans to PDMPs. The types of information that VA is authorized to disclose to PDMPs include demographic information of veterans and dependents of veterans who are prescribed a controlled substance, information about the prescribed controlled substances, and prescriber information. Interested persons were invited to submit comments on or before April 12, 2013, and we received 2 comments. Both comments expressed support for the interim final rule and do not recommend any changes to the rule. One commenter suggested that VA focus on the states with a high veteran population and work with the Office of National Drug Control Policy. We appreciate the commenter’s suggestion. VA will take this suggestion into consideration. Based on the rationale set forth in the interim final rule, we adopt the interim final rule as a final rule without change.
