Download as PDF 55322 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 223 / Tuesday, November 21, 2017 / Rules and Regulations determination is available in the docket where indicated in the ADDRESSES section of this preamble. C. Collection of Information This rule would call for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520.). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Government A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect 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. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with RULES E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule simply promulgates the operating regulations or procedures for drawbridges. This action is categorically excluded from further review, under figure 2–1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction.

The Routes 1 & 9 Bridge across the Passaic River, mile 1.8, at Newark, New Jersey is a vertical lift bridge with a vertical clearance of 40 feet at mean high water and 45 feet at mean low water in the closed position.

ACTION: Correcting amendment. AGENCY: On June 13, 2017, the Copyright Royalty Judges revised their rules regarding filing of claims. That document inadvertently added a requirement that filers of joint DART claims include addresses and email addresses for all claimants. Interested parties filed a petition to amend asking the Judges to remove the requirement because the proposed rule did not include it. This document corrects the final regulations to remove the requirement. SUMMARY: Effective November 21, 2017.

The preamble to the proposed rule, 82 FR 14167, addressed the purpose of the revisions to the rules: (1) Changes were necessary due to implementation of an electronic filing system, and (2) consolidation of rules was necessary to streamline the regulations regarding cable and satellite claims. The preamble also stated that the rules regarding DART claims would be relocated, but it did not mention any other changes to the DART rules. In the final rule, the Judges mistakenly added a requirement that filers include in the content of joint DART claims the addresses and email addresses of all listed claimants. The petitioners argue that if the rule stands they will not be able to file joint claims for their clients because of confidentiality restrictions regarding release of address information. Had the Judges proposed a change in the rule to require addresses and email addresses, the petitioners would have submitted a comment objecting to that requirement. In light of the fact that the claims filing period for DART starts in less than two months, the Judges do not intend to impose a greater burden on the petitioners than in past filing periods. They remove the requirement for claimant addresses and email addresses from the regulations governing the content of joint DART claims.
