The deviation is necessary to accommodate the Everett Marathon. The deviation allows the bridges to remain in the closed-tonavigation position to allow for the safe movement of event participants. DATES: This deviation is effective from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on April 10, 2016. SUMMARY: The docket for this deviation, [USCG–2016–0124] is available at http://www.regulations.gov. Type the docket number in the ‘‘SEARCH’’ box and click ‘‘SEARCH.’’ Click on Open Docket Folder on the line associated with this deviation. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this temporary deviation, call or email Mr. Steven Fischer, Bridge Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District; ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 8645 The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) requested permission for the SR 529 highway bridges across the Snohomish River and Steamboat Slough to remain in the closed-to-navigation position to facilitate the safe, uninterrupted roadway passage of participants in the Everett Marathon. The SR 529 highway bridge over the Snohomish River at mile 3.6 provides 37 feet of vertical clearance above mean high water elevation while in the closed position. This bridge operate in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1059(c). The SR 529 highway bridge over Steamboat Slough at mile 1.1 and 1.2 provides 10 feet of vertical clearance above mean high water elevation while in the closed position. This bridge operate in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1059(g). This deviation allows the SR 529 bridges crossing the Snohomish River and Steamboat Slough to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on April 10, 2016. The bridges shall operate in accordance to 33 CFR 117.1059 at all other times. Vessels able to pass through the bridges in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at any time. The bridges will be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. Waterway usage on this part of the Snohomish River and Steamboat Slough includes vessels ranging from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. 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 vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridges must return to their 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 17, 2016. Steven M.

Natural Gas Pipelines; Project Cost and Annual Limits

AGENCY: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Energy.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the authority delegated by 18 CFR 375.308(x)(1), 
the Director of the Office of Energy Projects (OEP) computes and 
publishes the project cost and annual limits for natural gas pipelines 
blanket construction certificates for each calendar year.

DATES: This final rule is effective February 22, 2016 and establishes 
cost limits applicable from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marsha K. Palazzi, Chief, Certificates 
Branch 2, Division of Pipeline Certificates, (202) 502-6785.
    Section 157.208(d) of the Commission's Regulations provides for 
project cost limits applicable to construction, acquisition, operation 
and miscellaneous rearrangement of facilities (Table I) authorized 
under the blanket certificate procedure (Order No. 234, 19 FERC ] 
61,216). Section 157.215(a) specifies the calendar year dollar limit 
which may be expended on underground storage testing and development 
(Table II) authorized under the blanket certificate. Section 157.208(d) 
requires that the ``limits specified in Tables I and II shall be 
adjusted each calendar year to reflect the `GDP implicit price 
deflator' published by the Department of Commerce for the previous 
calendar year.''
    Pursuant to 375.308(x)(1) of the Commission's Regulations, the 
authority for the publication of such cost limits, as adjusted for 
inflation, is delegated to the Director of the Office of Energy 
Projects. The cost limits for calendar year 2014, as published in Table 
I of 157.208(d) and Table II of Sec.  157.215(a), are hereby issued.

Effective Date

    This final rule is effective February 22, 2016. The provisions of 5 
U.S.C. 804 regarding Congressional review of Final Rules does not apply 
to the Final Rule because the rule concerns agency procedure and 
practice and will not substantially affect the rights or obligations of 
non-agency parties. The Final Rule merely updates amounts published in 
the Code of Federal Regulations to reflect the Department of Commerce's 
latest annual determination of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) 
implicit price deflator, a mathematical updating required by the 
Commission's existing regulations.
