SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Electronic and Facsimile Availability This document and additional information concerning OFAC are available from OFAC’s Web site (www.treasury.gov/ofac). Background On February 7, 2006, the President issued Executive Order 13396, ‘‘Blocking Property of Certain Persons ˆ Contributing to the Conflict in Cote d’Ivoire’’ (E.O. 13396), in which the President declared a national emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by the situation in or in ˆ relation to Cote d’Ivoire. That situation, which had been addressed by the United Nations Security Council in Resolution 1572 of November 15, 2004, and subsequent resolutions, had resulted in the massacre of large numbers of civilians, widespread human rights abuses, significant political violence and unrest, and attacks against international peacekeeping forces leading to fatalities. E.O. 13396 blocked all property and interests in property of the persons listed in the Annex to E.O. 13396 and any person determined to meet one or more of the criteria set out in E.O. 13396. On April 13, 2009, OFAC issued the Persons Contributing to the Conflict in ˆ Cote d’Ivoire Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 543 (the ‘‘Regulations’’), as a final rule to implement E.O. 13396 (74 FR 16763, April 13, 2009). On July 21, 2009, OFAC issued an amendment to the Regulations to change the heading of ˆ the Regulations to the Cote d’Ivoire Sanctions Regulations (74 FR 35802, July 21, 2009). OFAC also amended the Regulations on February 8, 2012, to add a definition of a term used in the Regulations (77 FR 6463, Feb. 8, 2012). On September 14, 2016, the President issued Executive Order 13739, ‘‘Termination of Emergency With Respect to the Situation in or in ˆ Relation to Cote d’Ivoire’’ (E.O. 13739). In E.O. 13739, the President found that the situation that gave rise to the E:\FR\FM\13NOR1.SGM 13NOR1 52210 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 217 / Monday, November 13, 2017 / Rules and Regulations declaration of a national emergency in E.O. 13396 with respect to the situation ˆ in or in relation to Cote d’Ivoire had been significantly altered by the progress achieved in the stabilization of ˆ Cote d’Ivoire, including the successful conduct of the October 2015 presidential election, progress on the management of arms and related materiel, and the combatting of illicit trafficking in natural resources. Accordingly, and in view of the removal of multilateral sanctions by the United Nations Security Council in Resolution 2283, the President terminated the national emergency and revoked E.O. 13396. Therefore, OFAC is removing the Regulations from the Code of Federal Regulations. Pursuant to section 202 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622) and section 1 of E.O. 13739, termination of the national emergency declared in E.O. 13396 shall not affect any action taken or proceeding pending and not fully concluded or determined as of 8:00 a.m. eastern daylight time on September 14, 2016 (the effective date of E.O. 13739), any action or proceeding based on any act committed prior to the effective date, or any rights or duties that matured or penalties that were incurred prior to the effective date. Public Participation Because the Regulations involve a foreign affairs function, the provisions of Executive Order 12866 and the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity for public participation, and delay in effective date, as well as the provisions of Executive Order 13771, are inapplicable.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Burlington County Bridge Commission, owner and operator of the SR 73 (Tacony-Palmyra) Bridge across the Delaware River, mile 107.2, in between Tacony, PA, and Palmyra, NJ, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to accommodate annual maintenance to replace machinery components for the drive system that operates the bascule spans. The bridge has a vertical SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 clearance of 50 feet above mean high water (MHW) in the closed position. The current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.716. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position for six (6) separate four (4) day periods from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. starting from December 15, 2017, through December 18, 2017; January 4, 2018, through January 7, 2018; January 11, 2018, through January 14, 2018; January 18, 2018, through January 21, 2018; January 25, 2018, through January 28, 2018; and February 1, 2018, through February 4, 2018. The bridge will open on signal at all other times. The Delaware River is used by a variety of vessels including small commercial vessels, recreational vessels and tug and barge traffic. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with waterway users in publishing this temporary deviation. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so if at least 15 minutes notice is given. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notice 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 this temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of this effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: November 3, 2017. Hal R. Pitts, Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

    This document and additional information concerning OFAC are 
available from OFAC's Web site (www.treasury.gov/ofac).

Background

    On February 7, 2006, the President issued Executive Order 13396, 
``Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in 
C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire'' (E.O. 13396), in which the President declared a 
national emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to 
the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by 
the situation in or in relation to C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire. That situation, 
which had been addressed by the United Nations Security Council in 
Resolution 1572 of November 15, 2004, and subsequent resolutions, had 
resulted in the massacre of large numbers of civilians, widespread 
human rights abuses, significant political violence and unrest, and 
attacks against international peacekeeping forces leading to 
fatalities. E.O. 13396 blocked all property and interests in property 
of the persons listed in the Annex to E.O. 13396 and any person 
determined to meet one or more of the criteria set out in E.O. 13396.
    On April 13, 2009, OFAC issued the Persons Contributing to the 
Conflict in C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 543 
(the ``Regulations''), as a final rule to implement E.O. 13396 (74 FR 
16763, April 13, 2009). On July 21, 2009, OFAC issued an amendment to 
the Regulations to change the heading of the Regulations to the 
C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire Sanctions Regulations (74 FR 35802, July 21, 2009). 
OFAC also amended the Regulations on February 8, 2012, to add a 
definition of a term used in the Regulations (77 FR 6463, Feb. 8, 
2012).
    On September 14, 2016, the President issued Executive Order 13739, 
``Termination of Emergency With Respect to the Situation in or in 
Relation to C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire'' (E.O. 13739). In E.O. 13739, the 
President found that the situation that gave rise to the

[[Page 52210]]

declaration of a national emergency in E.O. 13396 with respect to the 
situation in or in relation to C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire had been 
significantly altered by the progress achieved in the stabilization of 
C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire, including the successful conduct of the October 
2015 presidential election, progress on the management of arms and 
related materiel, and the combatting of illicit trafficking in natural 
resources. Accordingly, and in view of the removal of multilateral 
sanctions by the United Nations Security Council in Resolution 2283, 
the President terminated the national emergency and revoked E.O. 13396.
    Therefore, OFAC is removing the Regulations from the Code of 
Federal Regulations. Pursuant to section 202 of the National 
Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622) and section 1 of E.O. 13739, 
termination of the national emergency declared in E.O. 13396 shall not 
affect any action taken or proceeding pending and not fully concluded 
or determined as of 8:00 a.m. eastern daylight time on September 14, 
2016 (the effective date of E.O. 13739), any action or proceeding based 
on any act committed prior to the effective date, or any rights or 
duties that matured or penalties that were incurred prior to the 
effective date.

Public Participation

    Because the Regulations involve a foreign affairs function, the 
provisions of Executive Order 12866 and the Administrative Procedure 
Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity 
for public participation, and delay in effective date, as well as the 
provisions of Executive Order 13771, are inapplicable. Because no 
notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this rule, the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612) does not apply.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this rule does 
not impose information collection requirements that would require the 
approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.
