Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 80 / Wednesday, April 25, 2018 / Rules and Regulations DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE With the finalization of the DoD-level FOIA rule at 32 CFR part 286, the Department is eliminating the need for this separate DoD-level FOIA rule and reducing costs to the public as explained in the preamble of the revised DoD-level FOIA rule at 32 CFR part 286 published at 83 FR 5196–5197. This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review,’’ therefore, E.O. 13771, ‘‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs’’ does not apply.

Aaron T. Siegel, Alternate OSD Federal Register Liaison Officer, Department of Defense. Office of the Secretary, DoD. Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: This final rule removes one of the Department’s two DoD-level regulations concerning the implementation of and assignment of responsibilities for the DoD Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) program. Any content required to be in an agency’s FOIA rule from this part was incorporated into the Department’s other DoD-level regulation concerning the DoD FOIA program, which was recently revised and for which a final rule published on February 6, 2018. Therefore, this part can now be removed from the CFR. Additionally, the revised DoD-level FOIA rule now includes DoD component FOIA program information, which eliminated the requirement for component supplementary rules. Accordingly, all of the department’s necessary FOIA public guidance has been incorporated into a single part. DATES: This rule is effective on April 25, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Hogan at 571–372–0462. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: It has been determined that publication of this CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest because any public-facing guidance from this part was incorporated into another CFR part for which public comment has already been taken. Any internal guidance from this part will continue to be published in DoD Directive 5400.07 available at http://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/ Documents/DD/issuances/dodd/ 540007p.pdf. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:26 Apr 24, 2018 Jkt 244001 [FR Doc. 2018–08663 Filed 4–24–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 5001–06–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 117 [Docket No. USCG–2018–0325] Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Upper Mississippi River, Rock Island, IL Coast Guard, DHS.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Army Rock Island Arsenal, owner and operator of the Rock Island Railroad and Highway Drawbridge, across the Upper Mississippi River, mile 482.9, at Rock Island, Illinois, requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to accommodate the Quad City Heart Walk. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 23.8 feet above normal pool in the closed-to-navigation position. This bridge is governed by 33 CFR 117.5. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 8:30 a.m. through 11 a.m. on May 19, 2018. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and recreational watercraft. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections were received.

The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Upper Mississippi River. The Coast Guard will inform users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so the 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 the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: April 19, 2018. Eric A. Washburn, Bridge Administrator, Western Rivers.
