Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 26 / Thursday, February 9, 2017 / Rules and Regulations rule making before the rule can be effective. 5 U.S.C. 553(b) IV. Justification for Immediate Effective Date Section 553(d) requires agencies to publish their rules at least 30 days before their effective dates, except if the agency finds for good cause that the delay is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. By expressly exempting this rule from section 553, the 2015 Inflation Adjustment Improvements Act has provided the agency with the good cause justification for this rule to become effective on the date it is published in the Federal Register. Compliance With Executive Orders 12866, 12988, and 13132, and the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Ch. 35) and the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) Executive Order 12866 The Office of Management and Budget has determined that this interim final rule is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. This is also not a major rule under the Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 800. Executive Order 12988 This action meets applicable standards set forth in Sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. The action does not have retroactive or preemptive effect. Executive Order 13132 For the purpose of Executive Order 13132, SBA has determined that the rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, this interim final rule has no federalism implications warranting preparation of a federalism assessment. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES Paperwork Reduction Act SBA has determined that this rule does not impose additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) The RFA requires agencies to consider the effect of their regulatory actions on small entities, including small nonprofit businesses, and small local governments. Pursuant to the RFA, when an agency issues a rule the agency must prepare an analysis that describes whether the impact of the rule will have a significant economic impact on a VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:44 Feb 08, 2017 Jkt 241001 substantial number of such small entities. However, the RFA requires such analysis only where notice and comment rulemaking is required. As stated above, SBA has express statutory authority to issue this rule without regard to the notice and comment. Since notice and comment is not required before this rule is issued, SBA is not required to prepare a regulatory analysis.

The Old Youngs Bay Bridge across Youngs Bay foot of Fifth Street, mile 2.4, at Astoria, OR, has a vertical clearance of 19 feet above mean high water when in the closed-to-navigation position. The bridge operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.899(b). ODOT requested to change the operating schedule of the Old Youngs Bay Bridge for several months while work is performed on the north bascule lift. This temporary rule will allow ODOT to operate the double bascule draw in single leaf mode, one lift at a time. One half of the double bascule bridge will have a containment system installed on the north half of the span, which will reduce the vertical clearance by 5 feet from 19 feet above mean high water to 14 feet above mean high water on the non-operable half of the span. Adjusting the existing drawbridge regulation will allow construction workers to complete bridge and highway upgrades before winter of 2017, while having minimal impact on maritime navigation, and no alternate routes are on this part of Youngs Bay into Youngs River. Marine traffic on Youngs Bay consists of vessels ranging from small pleasure craft, sailboats, small tribal fishing boats, and commercial tug and tow, and mega yachts. 33 CFR Part 117 [Docket No. USCG–2016–0968] RIN 1625–AA09 Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Youngs Bay, Astoria, OR Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is temporarily changing the operating schedule that governs the Oregon State highway bridge across Youngs Bay foot of Fifth Street (Old Youngs Bay Bridge), mile 2.4, at Astoria, OR. The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) requested to change the operating schedule of the Old Youngs Bay Bridge for several months while work is performed on the north bascule lift. This change will allow ODOT to operate the double bascule draw in single leaf mode, one lift at a time, and reduce the vertical clearance of the non-operable half of the span by five feet.

Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting E:\FR\FM\09FER1.SGM 09FER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 19, 2017, NMFS published this 
final rule that sets forth changes to the regulations that implement 
conservation measures adopted by the Commission for the Conservation of 
Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR or Commission). This final 
rule streamlines and clarifies the regulations for Antarctic marine 
living resources, shifts deadlines for advance notice of intended 
fishing activities, distinguishes between first receivers and dealers 
of Antarctic marine living resources (AMLR), reduces the time for 
advance notice of imports of Dissostichus species, and adds 
transshipment notification requirements. The sections of these 
regulations are reorganized to group requirements related to the trade 
of Antarctic marine living resources and those that apply to fishing 
activities. Additionally, this action updates the regulations to 
reflect Commission-adopted revisions to existing conservation measures 
and changes made to the Antarctic Marine Living Resources Convention 
Act through the Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing 
Enforcement Act of 2015.
    On January 20, 2017, the White House issued a memo instructing 
Federal agencies to temporarily postpone the effective date for 60 days 
after January 20, 2017, of any regulations or guidance documents that 
have published in the Federal Register but not yet taken effect, for 
the purpose of ``reviewing questions of fact, law, and policy they 
raise.'' In accordance with this memorandum, this action delays the
