FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The City of New Haven, the owner of the bridge, requested a temporary deviation from the normal operating schedule to facilitate rehabilitation of the bridge. The Chapel Street Bridge, across the Mill River, mile 0.4 at New Haven, Connecticut offers mariners a vertical clearance of 7.88 feet at mean high water and 13.99 feet at mean low water in the closed position. The existing drawbridge operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.213(d). The bridge routinely opens for commercial vessels, but mariners have indicated the requirement for 2 hours of advance notice will not impede routine waterway operations. Under this temporary deviation, the Chapel Street Bridge will open for the passage of vessels requiring an opening provided 2 hours of advance notice is furnished to the owner of the bridge; except that, from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays, the draw need not open for the passage of vessel traffic. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without an opening may do so at all times. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies. There is no alternate route for vessels to pass. 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 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.

ACTION: Final rule; correction. AGENCY: On March 13, 2017, FEMA published in the Federal Register a suspension of community eligibility final rule that contained an erroneous table. This final rule provides corrections to that table, to be used in lieu of the information published at 82 FR 13399. The table provided here represents the communities that are scheduled for suspension on the effective dates listed within this rule because of noncompliance with the floodplain management requirements of the program. DATES: The effective date of each community’s scheduled suspension is the third date (‘‘Susp.’’) listed in the third column of the following tables. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you want to determine whether a particular community was suspended on the suspension date or for further information, contact Patricia Suber, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 400 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–4149. Also, information identifying the current participation status of a community can be obtained from FEMA’s Community Status Book (CSB). The CSB is available at https:// www.fema.gov/national-floodinsurance-program-community-statusbook. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NFIP enables property owners to purchase Federal flood insurance that is not otherwise generally available from private insurers. In return, communities agree to adopt and administer local floodplain management measures aimed at protecting lives and new construction from future flooding. Section 1315 of mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:52 Apr 14, 2017 Jkt 241001 the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits the sale of NFIP flood insurance unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed in this document no longer meet that statutory requirement for compliance with program regulations, 44 CFR part 59. Accordingly, the communities will be suspended on the effective date in the third column. As of that date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the community. We recognize that some of these communities may adopt and submit the required documentation of legally enforceable floodplain management measures after this rule is published but prior to the actual suspension date. These communities will not be suspended and will continue to be eligible for the sale of NFIP flood insurance. A notice withdrawing the suspension of such communities will be published in the Federal Register. In addition, FEMA publishes a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) that identifies the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in these communities. The date of the FIRM, if one has been published, is indicated in the fourth column of the table. No direct Federal financial assistance (except assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act not in connection with a flood) may be provided for construction or acquisition of buildings in identified SFHAs for communities not participating in the NFIP and identified for more than a year on FEMA’s initial FIRM for the community as having flood-prone areas (section 202(a) of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4106(a), as amended). This prohibition against certain types of Federal assistance becomes effective for the communities listed on the date shown in the last column. The Administrator finds that notice and public comment procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b), are impracticable and unnecessary because communities listed in this final rule have been adequately notified. Each community receives 6-month, 90-day, and 30-day notification letters addressed to the Chief Executive Officer stating that the community will be suspended unless the required floodplain management measures are met prior to the effective suspension date. Since these notifications were made, this final rule may take effect within less than 30 days. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Correction In the suspension of community eligibility final rule published at 82 FR 13399 in the March 13, 2017 issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table titled Suspension of Community Eligibility Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA–8469. This table contained inaccurate information as to the date the communities were to be suspended featured in the table. The Cities of Lakewood and Ruston, Pierce County, Washington, remain eligible for suspension. The other communities listed in the incorrect table came into compliance and thus were not suspended. In this document, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate information. The information provided below should be used in lieu of that previously published. National Environmental Policy Act. FEMA has determined that the community suspension(s) included in this rule is a non-discretionary action and therefore the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) does not apply. Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Administrator has determined that this rule is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act because the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, Section 1315, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed no longer comply with the statutory requirements, and after the effective date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the communities unless remedial action takes place. Regulatory Classification. This final rule is not a significant regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 51735. Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This rule involves no policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988. Paperwork Reduction Act. This rule does not involve any collection of information for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. List of Subjects in 44 CFR Part 64 Flood insurance, Floodplains. Accordingly, 44 CFR part 64 is amended as follows: ■ E:\FR\FM\17APR1.SGM 17APR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The City of New Haven, the owner of the 
bridge, requested a temporary deviation from the normal operating 
schedule to facilitate rehabilitation of the bridge. The Chapel Street 
Bridge, across the Mill River, mile 0.4 at New Haven, Connecticut 
offers mariners a vertical clearance of 7.88 feet at mean high water 
and 13.99 feet at mean low water in the closed position. The existing 
drawbridge operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.213(d). The 
bridge routinely opens for commercial vessels, but mariners have 
indicated the requirement for 2 hours of advance notice will not impede 
routine waterway operations.
    Under this temporary deviation, the Chapel Street Bridge will open 
for the passage of vessels requiring an opening provided 2 hours of 
advance notice is furnished to the owner of the bridge; except that, 
from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, except Federal holidays, the draw need not open for the passage 
of vessel traffic.
    Vessels that can pass under the bridge without an opening may do so 
at all times. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies. There is 
no alternate route for vessels to pass.
    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 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.
