SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 22, 2016, the Coast Guard published a temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Harlem River, New York, New York’’ in the Federal Register (81 FR 93820). That temporary deviation allows the bridge to be in the closed position from January 17, 2016 through May 15, 2017. The bridge owner, jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:48 May 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA), has requested a modification of the currently published deviation to extend the bridge closure from May 15, 2017 to June 19, 2017 in order to facilitate rehabilitation of the mechanical and electrical components of the bridge. The 125th Street Bridge, mile 1.3, across the Harlem River, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 54 feet at mean high water and 59 feet at mean low water. The existing bridge operating regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.789(b)(1). Although the waterway is transited by commercial tugs, barges and recreational vessels, there have been no requests for bridge openings in the past two years. The Coast Guard notified known companies of the commercial vessels that transit the area, the NYPD, and the FDNY; there were no objections to this temporary deviation modification. Under this temporary deviation modification, the 125th Street Bridge may remain in the closed position from May 16, 2017 to June 19, 2017. Vessels able to pass under the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is an alternate route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterways through our Local Notice and Broadcast to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operations 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. Dated: April 20, 2017. C.J. Bisignano, Supervisory Bridge Management Specialist, First Coast Guard District.

Resolution of interim final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) notifies the public that an interim final rule freezing medication copayments for veterans in priority groups 2 through 8, published on December 7, 2016, was superseded by a final rule amending its regulations concerning copayments that published on December 12, 2016. The interim final rule received no public comments. DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective on May 5, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 7, 2016, VA published an interim final rule, RIN 2900–AP87— Copayments for Medications in 2017 (AP87), at 81 FR 88120, extending the medication copayment freeze through February 26, 2017. We did so in anticipation of publishing a separate final rule, RIN 2900–AP35— Copayments for Medications Beginning January 1, 2017 (AP35), which published December 12, 2016, at 81 FR 89390, implementing a tiered medication copayment regime with an effective date of February 27, 2017. Failure to extend the medication copayment freeze with the interim final rule would have subjected affected veterans to a short term, but significant, increase in the amount of medication copayments based on the prescription drug component of the Medical Consumer Price Index (CPI–P) per 38 CFR 17.110(b)(1)(iii). In addition, affected veterans in priority groups 2 through 6 would have been subject to an increase in the annual cap on the total amount of copayments. The interim final rule, AP87, provided a 60-day period during which the public could submit comments. The comment period closed on February 6, 2017, and we received no comments. As previously mentioned, on December 12, 2016, VA published a final rule, AP35, at 81 FR 89390. This final rule established a tiered SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\05MYR1.SGM 05MYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 22, 2016, the Coast Guard 
published a temporary deviation entitled ``Drawbridge Operation 
Regulation; Harlem River, New York, New York'' in the Federal Register 
(81 FR 93820). That temporary deviation allows the bridge to be in the 
closed position from January 17, 2016 through May 15, 2017. The bridge 
owner, Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA), has requested a 
modification of the currently published deviation to extend the bridge 
closure from May 15, 2017 to June 19, 2017 in order to facilitate 
rehabilitation of the mechanical and electrical components of the 
bridge.
    The 125th Street Bridge, mile 1.3, across the Harlem River, has a 
vertical clearance in the closed position of 54 feet at mean high water 
and 59 feet at mean low water. The existing bridge operating 
regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.789(b)(1).
    Although the waterway is transited by commercial tugs, barges and 
recreational vessels, there have been no requests for bridge openings 
in the past two years. The Coast Guard notified known companies of the 
commercial vessels that transit the area, the NYPD, and the FDNY; there 
were no objections to this temporary deviation modification.
    Under this temporary deviation modification, the 125th Street 
Bridge may remain in the closed position from May 16, 2017 to June 19, 
2017. Vessels able to pass under the bridge in the closed position may 
do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies 
and there is an alternate route for vessels to pass.
    The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterways through our 
Local Notice and Broadcast to Mariners of the change in operating 
schedule for the bridge so that vessel operations 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.
