ACTION: Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking—Extension of Public Comment Period. AGENCY: 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 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:44 Oct 08, 2014 Jkt 235001 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. DATES: BOEM published the ANPR on August 19, 2014 (79 FR 49027) with a sixty day comment period. With this extension, comments must be received by November 17, 2014.

Notice of proposed rulemaking; withdrawal. AGENCY: ACTION: 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.

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 fourhour advance notice for bridge openings would not meet the reasonable needs of navigation.

Basis and Purpose On May 1, 2014, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation Oceanport Creek, Oceanport, New Jersey’’ in the Federal Register (79 FR 24654). The proposed rulemaking concerned the New Jersey Transit Rail Operations (NJTRO) Bridge across Oceanport Creek at mile 8.4, at Oceanport, New Jersey. The owner of the bridge, NJTRO, submitted a request to the Coast Guard to change the drawbridge operating regulations to allow the bridge to open year-round if at least a four-hour advance notice was given. This request to change the regulations was based on the past three years of bridge opening data which indicated the bridge only received eight requests to open during that time period. The Coast Guard received three comment letters in response to our notice of proposed rulemaking. The comment letters requested that the Coast Guard deny the bridge owner’s request to change the Drawbridge Operation Regulations for the NJTRO Bridge because it would have a detrimental effect on upstream businesses. The Fort Monmouth Marina and Restaurant located upstream from the NJTRO Bridge recently re-opened as The Marina at Oceanport. The marina was closed for the past three years as a result of damage sustained from Hurricane Sandy. The bridge opening data used to support the bridge owner’s proposal to allow the NJTRO Bridge to require a four-hour advance notice year-round based on the reduced number of bridge opening requests received during the past three years was collected during the time period when the marina VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:44 Oct 08, 2014 Jkt 235001 located upstream was closed following Hurricane Sandy. B. Withdrawal We are withdrawing this proposed rule as a result of the comments and information received. It is anticipated that the number and frequency of bridge opening requests will significantly increase now that the marina has reopened. As a result, we do not believe that a four-hour advance notice requirement for bridge openings is justifiable and that it would not meet the reasonable needs of navigation.

Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Oceanport Creek, Oceanport, NJ

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking; withdrawal.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: 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.

DATES: The notice of proposed rulemaking is withdrawn on October 9, 
2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Basis and Purpose

    On May 1, 2014, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled ``Drawbridge Operation Regulation Oceanport Creek, Oceanport, 
New Jersey'' in the Federal Register (79 FR 24654).
    The proposed rulemaking concerned the New Jersey Transit Rail 
Operations (NJTRO) Bridge across Oceanport Creek at mile 8.4, at 
Oceanport, New Jersey.
    The owner of the bridge, NJTRO, submitted a request to the Coast 
Guard to change the drawbridge operating regulations to allow the 
bridge to open year-round if at least a four-hour advance notice was 
given. This request to change the regulations was based on the past 
three years of bridge opening data which indicated the bridge only 
received eight requests to open during that time period.
    The Coast Guard received three comment letters in response to our 
notice of proposed rulemaking. The comment letters requested that the 
Coast Guard deny the bridge owner's request to change the Drawbridge 
Operation Regulations for the NJTRO Bridge because it would have a 
detrimental effect on upstream businesses.
    The Fort Monmouth Marina and Restaurant located upstream from the 
NJTRO Bridge recently re-opened as The Marina at Oceanport. The marina 
was closed for the past three years as a result of damage sustained 
from Hurricane Sandy.
    The bridge opening data used to support the bridge owner's proposal 
to allow the NJTRO Bridge to require a four-hour advance notice year-
round based on the reduced number of bridge opening requests received 
during the past three years was collected during the time period when 
the marina located upstream was closed following Hurricane Sandy.

B. Withdrawal

    We are withdrawing this proposed rule as a result of the comments 
and information received. It is anticipated that the number and 
frequency of bridge opening requests will significantly increase now 
that the marina has re-opened. As a result, we do not believe that a 
four-hour advance notice requirement for bridge openings is justifiable 
and that it would not meet the reasonable needs of navigation.

    Authority: This action is taken under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 
499; 33 CFR 1.05-1; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 
0170.1.
