Drawbridge Operation Regulation; St. Croix River, Stillwater, MN, 34275-34276 [2016-12663]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 104 / Tuesday, May 31, 2016 / Rules and Regulations cause to promulgate this rule without first providing for public comment. Similarly, BOEM finds that there is good cause to waive the usual 30-day delay in the effective date for this correction. This correction will not require any party to adjust its conduct and will not change the effect of the already published final rule. For these reasons, BOEM believes that the public does not need 30 days advance notice of this correction and that a delay in effectiveness is unnecessary. If this correction is not made effective on the same date, it would not become effective until after the erroneous language in the already published rule becomes effective, May 31, 2016. This could cause confusion to anyone potentially affected by § 556.403, making a 30-day delay in effectiveness impracticable. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), BOEM has determined that a 30-day delay in the effective date is unnecessary and impractical, and there is good cause to waive the delayed effective date for this final rule. Dated: May 16, 2016. Amanda C. Leiter, Acting Assistant Secretary—Land and Minerals Management. 1.
