The deviation is necessary in order to conduct electrical and structural repairs to the bridge. These repairs are essential for the continued safe operation of the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain temporarily closed to navigation for ten hours on three separate dates to effect the repairs. DATES: This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on Monday, April 14, 2014 through 5 p.m. on Friday, April 25, 2014.

Construction Company, on behalf of the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule on the US 90 highway bridge (East Pearl River Bridge), a swing span bridge across the Pearl River, mile 8.8 between Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 16199 Louisiana and Pearlington, Hancock County, Mississippi. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 10 feet above mean high water in the closed-to-navigation position and unlimited clearance in the open-tonavigation position. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.486(b), the draw of the US 90 highway bridge shall open on signal; except that, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. the draw shall open on signal if at least four hours notice is given. This temporary deviation allows the swing span bridge to remain closed to navigation from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Monday, April 14, 2014, on Thursday, April 24, 2014, and on Friday, April 25, 2014. During the first closure, the contractor will jack up the swing span to conduct structural repairs. During the second and third closures, the contractor will conduct electrical repairs and/or replacement of parts. Navigation at the site of the bridge consists mainly of small tows with barges, some commercial sightseeing boats, and some recreational pleasure craft. Due to prior experience, as well as coordination with 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 bridge 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: March 11, 2014. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator.

Final rule; delay of effective AGENCY: ACTION: date. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published in the Federal Register on November 14, 2013 (78 FR 68364), a notification delaying the effective date of a final rule that amends the payment methodology for providers of home health services and hospice care. That notification changed the effective date from November 15, 2013, to April 1, 2014. We are now delaying until June 1, 2014, the effective date of the final rule at 78 FR 26250. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date for the final rule published May 6, 2013, at 78 FR 26250, is delayed from April 1, 2014 to June 1, 2014. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karyn Barrett, Director of Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration, 3773 Cherry Creek Drive North, East Tower, Ste. 485, Denver, CO 80209, (303) 331–7829. (This is not a toll-free number.) This rulemaking makes the VA regulation governing payments for certain non-VA health care, 38 CFR 17.56, applicable to non-VA home health services and hospice care. Section 17.56 provides, among other things, that Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) fee schedule or prospective payment system amounts will be paid to certain non-VA providers, unless VA negotiates other payment amounts with such providers. See 38 CFR 17.56(a)(2)(i). This change in the billing methodology for non-VA home health and hospice care was put forth in a proposed rule. We received one comment to this change and responded to that comment in a final rule published in the Federal Register on May 6, 2013 (78 FR 26250). The original effective date of the final rule was stated as November 15, 2013; however, we now delay the effective date of the final rule at 78 FR 26250 to the new effective date of June 1, 2014. The delay of the effective date is necessary to accommodate difficulties in the outreach and implementation of standardized processes for VA staff involved in the process of approving and paying for home health services and hospice care. Technology issues continue to be addressed in order to apply the billing methodology under § 17.56 to non-VA home health services and hospice care. These difficulties relate to separate administration of hospice care and home health services by the Veterans Health Administration’s Office of Geriatrics and Extended Care, which uses separate methods for forming agreements with non-VA providers for the provision of these services, and difficulties regarding information technology systems necessary to use the CMS rate made applicable under § 17.56.
