The Agency has received requests for a 60-day extension of the comment period for the Requests for Comments and Information. Each request conveyed concern that the current 90-day comment period does not allow sufficient time to develop a meaningful or thoughtful response to the Requests for Comments and Information. FDA has considered the requests and is extending the comment period for the Requests for Comment and Information for 60 days, until February 5, 2018. The Agency believes that a 60-day extension allows adequate time for interested persons to submit comments without significantly delaying work on these important issues. Dated: November 30, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Background and Purpose On June 30, 2017, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ in the Federal Register (82 FR 29800). The original comment period closed on August 18, 2017. The NPRM proposed changes to the regulation governing the DELAIR Memorial Railroad Bridge across the Delaware River, mile 104.6, at Pennsauken Township, and contains useful background and analysis related to the proposed changes. The installation of the remote capabilities did not change the operational schedule of the bridge.1 The public is encouraged to review the NPRM. On April 12, 2017, we issued a temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ in the Federal Register (82 FR 17561). During the initial test deviation performed from 8 a.m. on April 24, 2017, through 7:59 a.m. on October 21, 2017, the bridge owner identified deficiencies in the remote operation center procedures, bridge to vessel communications, and equipment redundancy.

(see ADDRESSES for more information). PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 these deficiencies were submitted to the docket and provided to the Coast Guard and bridge owner by representatives from the Mariners’ Advisory Committee for the Bay and River Delaware. The bridge owner implemented policies and provided training to address the procedural and communications deficiencies, and implemented backup systems to mitigate potential equipment and systems failures. These changes were not fully evaluated during the test deviation ending October 21, 2017. Therefore, the Coast Guard has decided to issue a second test deviation to complete the evaluation of the changes incorporated into the remote operation system. On October 18, 2017, we published a second test deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, NJ’’ in the Federal Register (82 FR 48419). This second test deviation was issued to complete the evaluation of the changes incorporated into the remote operation system during the test deviation ending October 21, 2017. Comments and related material for the second test deviation must reach the Coast Guard on or before January 15, 2018. Re-Opening the Comment Period The comment period for the NPRM published on June 30, 2017 ended August 18, 2017. This notice re-opening the comment period ensures there is sufficient opportunity to comment on the proposed rule which would allow the bridge to be remotely operated from the Conrail South Jersey dispatch center in Mount Laurel, NJ, instead of being operated by an on-site bridge tender, before the proposed changes become final.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background and Purpose

    On June 30, 2017, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled, ``Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, 
Pennsauken Township, NJ'' in the Federal Register (82 FR 29800). The 
original comment period closed on August 18, 2017. The NPRM proposed 
changes to the regulation governing the DELAIR Memorial Railroad Bridge 
across the Delaware River, mile 104.6, at Pennsauken Township, and 
contains useful background and analysis related to the proposed 
changes. The installation of the remote capabilities did not change the 
operational schedule of the bridge.\1\ The public is encouraged to 
review the NPRM.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A full description of the remote operational system is 
outlined in the aforementioned publication, which can be found at 
http://regulations.gov. (see ADDRESSES for more information).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On April 12, 2017, we issued a temporary deviation entitled 
``Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, 
NJ'' in the Federal Register (82 FR 17561). During the initial test 
deviation performed from 8 a.m. on April 24, 2017, through 7:59 a.m. on 
October 21, 2017, the bridge owner identified deficiencies in the 
remote operation center procedures, bridge to vessel communications, 
and equipment redundancy. Comments concerning these deficiencies were 
submitted to the docket and provided to the Coast Guard and bridge 
owner by representatives from the Mariners' Advisory Committee for the 
Bay and River Delaware.
    The bridge owner implemented policies and provided training to 
address the procedural and communications deficiencies, and implemented 
backup systems to mitigate potential equipment and systems failures. 
These changes were not fully evaluated during the test deviation ending 
October 21, 2017. Therefore, the Coast Guard has decided to issue a 
second test deviation to complete the evaluation of the changes 
incorporated into the remote operation system.
    On October 18, 2017, we published a second test deviation entitled 
``Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Delaware River, Pennsauken Township, 
NJ'' in the Federal Register (82 FR 48419). This second test deviation 
was issued to complete the evaluation of the changes incorporated into 
the remote operation system during the test deviation ending October 
21, 2017. Comments and related material for the second test deviation 
must reach the Coast Guard on or before January 15, 2018.

Re-Opening the Comment Period

    The comment period for the NPRM published on June 30, 2017 ended 
August 18, 2017. This notice re-opening the comment period ensures 
there is sufficient opportunity to comment on the proposed rule which 
would allow the bridge to be remotely operated from the Conrail South 
Jersey dispatch center in Mount Laurel, NJ, instead of being operated 
by an on-site bridge tender, before the proposed changes become final.

II. Public Participation and Request for Comments

    We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, 
and will consider all comments and material received during the comment 
period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking. If
