The test procedures for clothes washers in appendix J2 to subpart B of part 430 of this chapter must be used to determine compliance with the energy conservation standards at § 431.156(b). Procedural Issues and Regulatory Review The regulatory reviews conducted for this rulemaking are those set forth in the December 3, 2014 final rule that originally codified amendments to DOE’s test procedures for commercial clothes washers. 79 FR 71624. The amendments from that final rule became effective January 2, 2015. Id. Pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b), DOE has determined that notice and prior opportunity for comment on this rule are unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. The amended CCW standards codified at 10 CFR 431.156(c) correspond to the ‘‘amended standards based on appendix J2 efficiency metrics published after December 3, 2014’’ referenced in 10 CFR 431.154. This correction is needed to ensure clarity regarding the amended CCW standards for which the appendix J2 test procedure must be used. This final rule also removes obsolete regulatory provisions. § 431.156 List of Subjects in 10 CFR Part 431 Administrative practice and procedure, Energy conservation, Household appliances.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 11, 2016, the Coast Guard published 
a temporary deviation entitled ``Drawbridge Operation Regulation; North 
Landing River, Chesapeake, VA'' in the Federal Register (81 FR 12824). 
Under that temporary deviation, the north span of the bridge opened-to-
navigation on the hour and half hour, upon request, from 6 a.m. to 7

deviation, the north and south spans of the bridge would open to

    The United States Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District Office, 
who owns and operates the S165 (North Landing Road) Bridge, has 
requested a modified temporary deviation from the currently published 
deviation to perform additional repairs to the south swing span of the 
bridge due to damage sustained as a result of a vessel allision with 
the bridge.
    Under this modified temporary deviation, the north span of the 
bridge will open-to-navigation on the hour and half hour, upon request, 
from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on demand from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. The north 
and south spans of the bridge will open to navigation concurrently,

considered the nature and volume of vessel traffic on the waterway in 
publishing this temporary deviation.
    During the closure times there will be limited opportunity for 
vessels which are able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed 
position to do so. Vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in 
the closed position may do so, after receiving confirmation from the 
bridge tender that it is safe to transit through the bridge. The north 
span of the bridge will be able to open for emergencies. 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 transit to 
minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), 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.
