SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with PROPOSALS Background In accordance with the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a), we are issuing public notice of our intent to establish a new system of records entitled, Social Security Administration Violence Evaluation and Reporting System (SSAvers) (60–0379). On April 18, 2012, President Obama issued the memorandum, Establishing Policies for Addressing Domestic Violence in the Federal Workforce, which directed the Office of Personnel Management to issue guidance to all departments and agencies to create policy that addressed domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Because of this guidance, we developed the Workplace and Domestic Violence policy and program. We established SSAvers as part of this policy and program to record, review, investigate, and respond to allegations of workplace and domestic violence affecting our employees and contractors. We are establishing SSAvers as part of our compliance efforts under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Congressional Accountability Act of 1995; 29 U.S.C. 51, Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970; 29 CFR 1960, VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:14 Jun 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 Basic Program Elements for Federal Employee Occupational Safety and Health Programs and Related Matters; 41 CFR 102–74, Subpart C, Conduct on Federal Property; 5 CFR 735, Employee Responsibilities and Conduct; 5 CFR 2635, Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch; and various other statutes related to handling incidents of workplace and domestic violence. SSAvers will capture and house information regarding alleged incidents of workplace and domestic violence filed by SSA employees and SSA contractors, and will allow SSA’s Crisis Advisory Team (CAT) to review and respond to the reported allegations. Due to the investigatory nature of information that we will maintain in this system of records, we propose this rule to add SSAvers to the list of SSA systems that are exempt from specific provisions of the Privacy Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2). Rulemaking Analyses and Notices We will consider all comments received on or before the close of business on the comment closing date previously indicated, and we will make the comments available for examination in the docket at the previously noted address. We will file comments received after the comment closing date in the docket, and we will consider them to the extent practicable. We may publish a final rule at any time after close of the comment period. Clarity of This Rule Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, requires each agency to write all rules in plain language. In addition to your substantive comments on this interim final rule, we invite your comments on how to make the rule easier to understand. For example: • Would more, but shorter, sections be better? • Are the requirements in the rule clearly stated? • Have we organized the material to suit your needs? • Could we improve clarity by adding tables, lists, or diagrams? • What else could we do to make the rule easier to understand? • Does the rule contain technical language or jargon that is not clear? • Would a different format make the rule easier to understand, e.g. grouping and order of sections, use of headings, paragraphing?

Executive Order 12866, as Supplemented by Executive Order 13563 We consulted with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and determined that this final rule does not meet the criteria for a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563. Therefore, OMB did not review it. We also determined that this final rule meets the plain language requirement of Executive Order 12866. Executive Order 13132 (Federalism) We analyzed this proposed rule in accordance with the principles and criteria established by Executive Order 13132, and we determined that the proposed rule will not have sufficient Federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism assessment. We also determined that this proposed rule will not preempt any State law or State regulation or affect the States’ abilities to discharge traditional State governmental functions. Executive Order 12372 (Intergovernmental Review) The regulations effectuating Executive Order 12372 regarding intergovernmental consultation on Federal programs and activities apply to this proposed rule. Regulatory Flexibility Act We certify that this proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it affects individuals only. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as amended, does not require us to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register LA–DOTD Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section SNPRM Supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking II. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis The State Route 22 Bridge (Madisonville (SR 22) swing span bridge) across the Tchefuncta River, mile 2.5, at Madisonville, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, is regulated under 33 CFR 117.500 and has a vertical clearance of 6.2 feet above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position and unlimited clearance in the open-to-navigation position. The draw of this bridge opens on signal from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., the draw opens on the hour and half hour, except that from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday except federal holidays, the draw opens only on the hour. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of recreational traffic as the largest commercial facility upstream of the bridge is no longer in service. On November 4, 2016, at the request of the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LA– DOTD), the Coast Guard issued a temporary deviation titled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Tchefuncta River, Madisonville, LA’’ (81 FR 76866). There, we stated that the 180-day deviation would test a temporary change to the operating schedule of the Madisonville (SR 22) swing span bridge to determine whether a permanent change is necessary. From November 21, 2016 through May 18, 2017, this deviation extended the time between openings from 30 minutes to an hour between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily, and allowed the bridge to remain closed at 8 a.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m.. Monday through Friday except federal holidays. During the comment period that closed on January 18, 2017, we received no comments. On November 4, 2016, concurrent with the test deviation and on the basis of a recent traffic study conducted by LA–DOTD, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Regulations; Tchefuncta River, Madisonville, LA’’ (81 FR 76889). There, we stated that the traffic study indicated that the intersection of SR 22 and SR 21/SR1077 is over capacity at peak hours and causes unacceptable levels of delay to roadway traffic, which is compounded by the opening of the Madisonville (SR 22) swing span bridge during peak hours. The traffic study also indicated that a combination of modifications of the traffic controls at this intersection and the operating schedule of the Madisonville (SR 22) swing span bridge would enhance the flow of vehicular traffic over SR 22. The NPRM proposed a change to the schedule of the Madisonville (SR 22) swing span bridge that extended the time between openings from 30 minutes to an hour between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily, and allowed the bridge to remain closed at 8 a.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m.. Monday through Friday except federal holidays. During the comment period that closed on January 18, 2017, we received no comments. LA–DOTD planned to conduct a study of vehicular traffic flow over the bridge as it related to a four way stop sign and traffic light at the intersection of SR 22 and SR 21 during the temporary deviation period. The LA–DOTD planned to complete four separate traffic studies at this intersection: A baseline traffic analysis across the SR 22 bridge with the original regulation and a fourway stop sign in place at the intersection of SR 22 and SR 21, a traffic analysis with the temporary deviation to the regulation and a four-way stop sign in place at the intersection of SR 22 and SR 21, a traffic analysis with the temporary deviation to the regulation and a traffic light in place at the intersection of SR 22 and SR 21, and a traffic analysis with the original regulation and a traffic light in place at the intersection of SR 22 and SR 21. On May 18, 2017, the temporary deviation expired at the end of its scheduled 180 days. III. Discussion of Comments and Change On May 26, 2017, LA–DOTD requested that the Coast Guard permanently change the regulation based on information provided in the traffic study, which is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. LA–DOTD also provided supplemental data and information on the population growth in St. Tammany Parish, including information on vehicle traffic counts on SR 22 from 2015, the locations of schools in the vicinity of SR 22 that contribute to vehicle congestion, St. Tammany Parish projected E:\FR\FM\14JNP1.SGM 14JNP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In accordance with the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a), we are issuing 
public notice of our intent to establish a new system of records 
entitled, Social Security Administration Violence Evaluation and 
Reporting System (SSAvers) (60-0379). On April 18, 2012, President 
Obama issued the memorandum, Establishing Policies for Addressing 
Domestic Violence in the Federal Workforce, which directed the Office 
of Personnel Management to issue guidance to all departments and 
agencies to create policy that addressed domestic violence, sexual 
assault, and stalking. Because of this guidance, we developed the 
Workplace and Domestic Violence policy and program. We established 
SSAvers as part of this policy and program to record, review, 
investigate, and respond to allegations of workplace and domestic 
violence affecting our employees and contractors.
    We are establishing SSAvers as part of our compliance efforts under 
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Congressional Accountability 
Act of 1995; 29 U.S.C. 51, Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970; 
29 CFR 1960, Basic Program Elements for Federal Employee Occupational 
Safety and Health Programs and Related Matters; 41 CFR 102-74, Subpart 
C, Conduct on Federal Property; 5 CFR 735, Employee Responsibilities 
and Conduct; 5 CFR 2635, Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of 
the Executive Branch; and various other statutes related to handling 
incidents of workplace and domestic violence.
    SSAvers will capture and house information regarding alleged 
incidents of workplace and domestic violence filed by SSA employees and 
SSA contractors, and will allow SSA's Crisis Advisory Team (CAT) to 
review and respond to the reported allegations. Due to the 
investigatory nature of information that we will maintain in this 
system of records, we propose this rule to add SSAvers to the list of 
SSA systems that are exempt from specific provisions of the Privacy Act 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2).

Rulemaking Analyses and Notices

    We will consider all comments received on or before the close of 
business on the comment closing date previously indicated, and we will 
make the comments available for examination in the docket at the 
previously noted address. We will file comments received after the 
comment closing date in the docket, and we will consider them to the 
extent practicable. We may publish a final rule at any time after close 
of the comment period.
Clarity of This Rule
    Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, 
requires each agency to write all rules in plain language. In addition 
to your substantive comments on this interim final rule, we invite your 
comments on how to make the rule easier to understand.
    For example:
     Would more, but shorter, sections be better?
     Are the requirements in the rule clearly stated?
     Have we organized the material to suit your needs?
     Could we improve clarity by adding tables, lists, or 
diagrams?
     What else could we do to make the rule easier to 
understand?
     Does the rule contain technical language or jargon that is 
not clear?
     Would a different format make the rule easier to 
understand, e.g. grouping and order of sections, use of headings, 
paragraphing?
Regulatory Procedures
    SSA will publish a final rule responding to any comments received 
and, if appropriate, will amend provisions of the rule.
Executive Order 12866, as Supplemented by Executive Order 13563
    We consulted with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and 
determined that this final rule does not meet the criteria for a 
significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, as 
supplemented by Executive Order 13563. Therefore, OMB did not review 
it.
    We also determined that this final rule meets the plain language 
requirement of Executive Order 12866.
Executive Order 13132 (Federalism)
    We analyzed this proposed rule in accordance with the principles 
and criteria established by Executive Order 13132, and we determined 
that the proposed rule will not have sufficient Federalism implications 
to warrant the preparation of a Federalism assessment. We also 
determined that this proposed rule will not preempt any State law or 
State regulation or affect the States' abilities to discharge 
traditional State governmental functions.
Executive Order 12372 (Intergovernmental Review)
    The regulations effectuating Executive Order 12372 regarding 
intergovernmental consultation on Federal programs and activities apply 
to this proposed rule.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
    We certify that this proposed rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it 
affects individuals only. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as 
amended, does not require us to prepare a regulatory flexibility 
analysis.
Paperwork Reduction Act
    These rules do not create any new or affect any existing 
collections and, therefore, do not require Office of Management and 
Budget approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act.
