Download as PDF 7110 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 34 / Tuesday, February 20, 2018 / Rules and Regulations sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES The Commission has determined that there may be instances in which it would be unable to resolve or act in certain matters in the absence of a quorum for the transaction of business. See Commission Rule 4.14(b), 16 CFR 4.14(b) (Commission quorum). Under these circumstances, the Commission believes that a delegation of its authority to act to resolve or advance matters in which no party or intervenor has a right to petition the agency for discretionary review or in which any such party or intervenor has waived such a right, serves the public interest. This delegation is not intended to alter or affect existing delegations to Commission staff. The delegate or delegates are authorized to act (1) in instances in which no party or intervenor would be adversely affected by the action and entitled to seek discretionary review by the full Commission, and (2) in matters where a party or intervenor would be adversely affected and entitled to seek such review, but the affected party or intervenor has waived such right, as provided by section 1(b) of Plan No. 4. In either instance, the delegation would not adversely affect the procedural rights of the relevant party or intervenor. In matters in which at least one Commissioner is participating, the delegation is made to the participating Commissioner or to the body of Commissioners who are participating. In matters in which no Commissioner is available or no Commissioner is participating, the General Counsel in consultation, where appropriate, with the Directors of the Bureaus of Consumer Protection, Competition, and Economics has authority to carry out these limited delegated actions without power of redelegation. The instant delegation is only authorized for those matters in which the Commission lacks a quorum as set forth in Commission Rule 4.14(b), 16 CFR 4.14(b) (Commission quorum). The delegation is not in effect in instances in which the Commission has a quorum. This delegation does not extend to the authority to act as an Administrative Law Judge in a formal administrative adjudication or impact any statutory requirements specifically requiring action by a quorum of Commissioners. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Commission certifies that these new regulations, which deal solely with internal policies governing FTC personnel, do not require an initial or final regulatory analysis under the Regulatory Flexibility Act because they will not have a significant economic VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:46 Feb 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 impact on a substantial number of small entities. See 5 U.S.C. 605(b). Paperwork Reduction Act The regulations adopted herein do not contain information collection requirements within the meaning of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520. Administrative Procedure Act The amended rule is published in final form without the opportunity for public notice and comment because it is a rule of ‘‘agency organization, procedure, or practice.’’ See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A). List of Subjects in 16 CFR Part 0 Administrative practice and procedure, Organization, Delegation of functions. For the reasons stated in the preamble, the Federal Trade Commission amends Title 16, Chapter I, Subchapter A, of the Code of Federal Regulations, as follows: Commissioner is participating, the General Counsel in consultation, where appropriate, with the Directors of the Bureaus of Consumer Protection, Competition, and Economics shall exercise this delegated authority without power of redelegation. This delegation does not alter or affect other delegations to Commission staff.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis

    Mathers Bridge across the Banana River, mile 0.5, at Indian Harbour 
Beach, FL is a swing bridge. It has a vertical clearance of 7 feet at 
mean high water in the closed position and a horizontal clearance of 74 
feet and 81 feet. Presently, the bridge operates in accordance with 33 
CFR 117.263.
    On January 12, 2017, the Brevard County Public Works Department, 
the bridge owner, requested the Coast Guard consider allowing the 
bridge to not open for vessels except every 30 minutes on the hour and 
half hour. The county requested this action in order to reduce traffic 
delays caused by the numerous openings of the bridge.
    On April 24, 2017, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Banana River, Indian 
Harbour Beach, FL in the Federal Register (82 FR 18877) and received 
minimul comments. The City of Indian Harbour Beach, FL requested to 
have the comment period re-opened as they believed their constituency 
did not have awareness of the initial notice and comment period. On 
October 23, 2017, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking; 
reopening comment period entitled Drawbridge Operation Regulation; 
Banana River, Indian Harbour Beach, FL in the Federal Register (82 FR 
48939).
    Due to the numerous comments received both for and against the 
proposed rule, the Coast Guard is publishing this temporary deviation 
to test the proposed schedule change to determine whether a permanent 
change is appropriate to better balance the needs of maritime and 
vehicle traffic.
    Under this test deviation, in effect from 6 a.m. on February 5, 
2018 to 6 a.m. on August 4, 2018, the bridge shall open for vessels 
requesting passage on the hour and half hour, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., 
Sunday through Thursday. On Friday, Saturday and all Federal holidays, 
24 hours a day, the bridge shall open for vessels on the hour and half 
hour. At all other times, the bridge shall open on signal if at least 
two hours notice is given. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in 
the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to 
open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for 
vessels to pass through the bridge in closed position.
    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.
