Essential Air Service Enforcement Policy
Document Number: 2014-24190
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Department of Transportation
This notice of enforcement policy announces how the Department of Transportation (DOT or Department) will enforce compliance with the requirements of the Department of Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2000, which prohibits the Department from subsidizing Essential Air Service (EAS) to communities located within the 48 contiguous States receiving per passenger subsidy amounts exceeding $200, unless the communities are located more than 210 miles from the nearest large or medium hub airport. All communities receiving subsidized EAS have until September 30, 2015, based on data from October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015, to ensure compliance with the $200 subsidy cap or face termination of subsidy eligibility. After September 30, 2015, the Department will enforce the $200 subsidy cap on an annual basis based on data compiled at the end of every fiscal year. Consistent with established procedures, DOT will issue a show-cause order to each EAS community that has been identified as failing to meet the $200 per passenger subsidy requirement. Each such community will have a fair and reasonable opportunity to demonstrate compliance with the $200 subsidy cap prior to a final decision by DOT. In addition, any community that is deemed ineligible under the $200 subsidy cap provision may petition the Secretary for a waiver. After receiving a community's petition for a waiver, the Secretary may waive the subsidy cap for a limited period of time, on a case-by-case basis, and subject to the availability of funds. To provide the Department with sufficient time to evaluate the FY 2015 data for potentially affected communities, DOT does not intend to issue any show-cause orders concerning compliance with the $200 subsidy cap until 2016.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Wisconsin; Nitrogen Oxide Combustion Turbine Alternative Control Requirements for the Milwaukee-Racine Former Nonattainment Area
Document Number: 2014-24172
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
On February 24, 2014, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) submitted revisions to the limits found in its nitrogen oxides (NOX) combustion turbine rule for the Milwaukee-Racine area formerly nonattainment for the 1997 ozone standard. This revision is contained in ``2013 Wisconsin Act 91Senate Bill 371,'' which provides for alternative NOX requirements, subject to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval on a case-by- case basis, to determine whether these alternative limits satisfy the reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA). EPA proposed to approve this rule as a revision to the State Implementation Plan on April 30, 2014 and received adverse comments. EPA is issuing this supplemental proposal to revise and expand the basis for proposing approval of the SIP revision. This supplemental proposal addresses the issue of whether the SIP revision satisfies certain anti-backsliding requirements of the CAA. EPA is seeking comment only on the potential anti-backsliding issue, and is not re-opening for comment other issues raised in its prior proposal.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Saugus River, Revere and Lynn, MA
Document Number: 2014-24171
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is changing the operating schedule that governs the General Edwards SR1A Bridge across the Saugus River at mile 1.7, between Revere and Lynn, Massachusetts. The bridge owner, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, submitted a request to require a two-hour advance notice for bridge openings at all times based upon infrequent requests to open the draw during past years. It is expected that this change to the regulations will create efficiency in drawbridge operations while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Oceanport Creek, Oceanport, NJ
Document Number: 2014-24170
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is withdrawing its notice of proposed rulemaking concerning the New Jersey Transit Rail Operations (NJTRO) Bridge across Oceanport Creek at mile 8.4, at Oceanport, New Jersey. The bridge owner submitted a request to require a four-hour advance notice for bridge openings year-round based upon infrequent requests to open the draw over the last three years. The Coast Guard is withdrawing this notice of proposed rulemaking because the data supporting the bridge owner's request was based upon the past three years of bridge openings; however, we received comments in response to our notice of proposed rulemaking that advised us that the Fort Monmouth Marina and Restaurant, located upstream from the bridge, was closed during the three year time period when the bridge opening data was collected. Subsequently, marina and restaurant has re- opened and it is now anticipated that the number of bridge opening requests will significantly increase. As a result of the above information we do not believe that a four- hour advance notice for bridge openings is justified at this time and that a four-hour advance notice for bridge openings would not meet the reasonable needs of navigation.

Risk Management, Financial Assurance and Loss Prevention
Document Number: 2014-24165
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management
BOEM has recognized the need to develop a comprehensive program to assist in identifying, prioritizing, and managing the risks associated with industry activities on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). BOEM intends to design and implement a more robust and comprehensive risk management, financial assurance and loss prevention program to address the complex issues and cost differences associated with offshore operations. As part of its overall effort to establish this program and associated changes to regulations, BOEM is seeking stakeholder comments regarding various risk management and monitoring activities pertaining to financial risks to taxpayers that may result from activities on the OCS. BOEM currently requires lessees to provide performance bonds and/or one of various alternative forms of financial assurance to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of leases, Rights-of-Use and Easements and Pipeline Rights-of-Way. BOEM is seeking comments on who is best suited to mitigate risks and whether other forms of financial assurance should be used, as well as whether, or to what extent, the current forms of financial assurance are adequate and appropriate. BOEM has received comments to its Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) indicating that the number of issues being addressed and the complexity of the topics being considered would justify a longer comment period. Various groups have also requested that additional time be provided to review and analyze the ANPR. For these reasons, BOEM has agreed to extend the comment period by an additional 30 days. The new comment period will elapse 90 days from August 19, 2014, the date of the original of publication of the ANPR.

Public Notice for Waiver of Non-Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance Related to the Proposed Release and Exchange of Airport Property at Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia, Louisiana
Document Number: 2014-24146
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to authorize the release and exchange of approximately 7.231 acres of the airport property at the Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia LA, owned by the New Iberia Parish. The Parish is proposing a land swap to exchange this 7.231 acre parcel for another parcel of approximately 10.548 acres. The acreage being released is not needed for aeronautical use as currently identified on the Airport Layout Plan. The new proposed parcel will be used for the Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia LA, Access Road project from Louisiana Highway 675 (Jefferson Island Road) to Louisiana Highway 3212 (Northwest Bypass). The acreage being released comprising this parcel was originally acquired in 1970 when the Parish governing body petitioned the U.S. government for release of 2,100 acres of previously the Naval Air Station New Iberia property for civil aviation use through the General Services Administration excess land disposal process. In exchange for the 7.231 acres the airport will receive a new parcel of land described above for the Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia LA, Access Road project. The 7.231 acre parcel (Tract 14) is Zoned ``I-1: Industrial'' and has access to LA Highway 3212 (Prairie Road) and is being proposed to be swapped for approximately 10.548 acres (Tract 13) Zoned ``A-1: Agricultural''. The appraised fair market value of the proposed 7.231 acres parcel is $64,000, the fair market value of the proposed acquired parcel is $58,000. The difference of $6,000 in fair market value between Tract 14 and Tract 13 will be compensated by the Iberia Parish Council to the Iberia Airport Authority to accommodate FAA auditing standards and requirements to prevent the potential for ``diversion of funds (assets)''. A Phase I, Environmental Site Assessment was conducted and published on April 14, 2014 resulting in the assessment that did not reveal any evidence of Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) in connection with the new acquired property. This action and the affected properties have been evaluated by the Department of the Army, New Orleans District, Corps of Engineers, the State Office of Historic Preservation, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and the Louisiana Ecological Services Office with a determination of an activity that would not negatively affect any wetland subject to Corps' jurisdiction, historical properties or threatened or endangered species respectively. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds (or compensation) from the disposal of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with section 47107(c)(2)(B) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose and concurring with the proposed land swap.
