Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 130 / Friday, July 6, 2018 / Rules and Regulations intent was to eliminate any confusion about with whom regulated entities and other persons should interact when complying with these various rules. In that document, the FAA assigned amendment number 65–56 to the rule. However, the FAA previously assigned that amendment number to a final rule that published on December 16, 2014, entitled ‘‘Elimination of the air traffic control tower operator certificate for controllers who hold a federal aviation administration credential with a tower rating on’’ (79 FR 74607). The correct amendment number should have been 65–57A, and this action fixes that error. Correction 1. On page 9162, in the first column, in the heading under the docket number correct ‘‘65–56’’ to read ‘‘65–57A’’. Issued under authority provided by 49 U.S.C. 106(f), 44701(a), and 44703 in Washington, DC, on June 27, 2018. Dale Bouffiou, Deputy Executive Director, Office of Rulemaking.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: As a result of this rule, the Department of State finalizes without change a final rule establishing that a passport and a visa is required of a British, French, or Netherlands national, or of a national of Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, or Trinidad and Tobago, who has residence in British, French, or Netherlands territory located in the adjacent islands of the Caribbean area, or has residence in Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, or Trinidad and Tobago, if the alien is proceeding to the United States as an agricultural worker. In light of past experience, and to promote consistency of treatment across H–2A agricultural workers, prudent border management requires that these temporary workers obtain a visa, which already is required of most other H–2A agricultural workers. The previous rule created a vulnerability by allowing temporary workers from these countries to enter the United States sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:23 Jul 05, 2018 Jkt 244001 without a visa. As a consequence of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) revising its regulations in parallel with State Department actions, temporary workers from these countries will continue to need H–2A visas to enter the United States. DATES: The rule is effective on August 6, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 4, 2016, the Department of State (Department) published an interim final rule that would require a British, French, or Netherlands national, or a national of Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, or Trinidad and Tobago, who has a residence in British, French, or Netherlands territory located in the adjacent islands of the Caribbean area, or has residence in Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, or Trinidad and Tobago, to obtain a passport and visa if the alien is proceeding to the United States as an agricultural worker. A minor correction was published on February 12, 2016. For further information about this rulemaking, please see the interim final rule, published at 81 FR 5906 and correction, published at 81 FR 7454. Analysis of Comments: Public comments were due on April 4, 2016. The Department received three comments. One comment supported the rule as a necessary security measure. The Department will not make any changes in response to this comment. The remaining two comments were not responsive to the rulemaking. One comment was critical of United States immigration policies gemerally, and the other indicated support for the rule but focused on issues related to domestic agricultural concerns. Accordingly, the rule is final as published. Regulatory Findings The Regulatory Findings included in the interim final rule are incorporated herein. Executive Order 12866 and 13771 OMB has designated this rule ‘‘not significant’’ under E.O. 12866. This rule is not subject to the requirements of E.O. 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 3, 2017) because this rule is not significant under E.O. 12866 . The costs of this rulemaking are discussed in the companion DHS rule, RIN 1651–AB09, included elsewhere in this edition of the Federal Register. That discussion is incorporated by PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 31451 reference herein. The Department has reviewed the costs and benefits of this rule to ensure its consistency with the regulatory philosophy and principles set forth in Executive Order 12866 and has determined that the benefits of this rule justify its costs. Accordingly, the interim rule amending 22 CFR part 41 which was published at 81 FR 5906 on February 4, 2016, is adopted as final without change. Dated: June 29, 2018. Carl C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), bridge owner, via Quinn Construction Inc, has requested a temporary deviation from the operation that governs the Indian Rocks Bridge across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, mile 128.2. This deviation is necessary to facilitate mechanical and electrical repairs, painting, roadway and sidewalk grating replacement which includes concrete removal, and spall repair. The bridge is a double-leaf bascule bridge and has a vertical clearance in the closed to navigation position of 21 feet at mean high water. The current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.5. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will operate on demand but single leaf only and with a 6 hour notice for double leaf openings.

The Coast Guard has carefully considered the restrictions with waterway users in publishing this temporary deviation. 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. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is amending its medical regulations to clarify that VA will not bill third party payers for care and services provided by VA under certain statutory provisions, which we refer to as ‘‘special treatment authorities.’’ These special treatment authorities direct VA to provide care and services to veterans based upon discrete exposures or experiences that occurred during active military, naval, or air service. VA is authorized, but not required by law, to recover or collect charges for care and services provided to veterans for non-service-connected disabilities. This rule establishes that VA will not exercise its authority to recover or collect reasonable charges from third party payers for care and services provided under the special treatment authorities.

Rules Governing Public Access

AGENCY: Department of the Navy, Department of Defense.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final rule removes DoD's regulation requiring individuals 
wishing to visit Kaho`olawe Island, Hawaii, to receive advance 
authorization from the Commanding Officer of Naval Base, Pearl Harbor 
before doing so. This part provided entry procedures for individuals 
wishing to visit Kaho`olawe Island, Hawaii, and its adjacent waters due 
to ongoing military training operations and the presence of unexploded 
ordnance (UXO). On November 11, 2003, upon the completion of UXO 
clearance and environmental restoration, control of access to 
Kaho`olawe was passed from the United States to the State of Hawaii. 
Since that time, Navy has not exercised access control to Kaho`olawe 
Island or its adjacent waters. This part is no longer required.

DATES: This rule is effective on July 6, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steven James at 703-601-0514.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: It has been determined that publication of 
this rule removal in the CFR for public comment is impracticable, 
unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on 
removing policies and procedures that are no longer in effect, and 
which have not been in effect for over 14 years.

    Removal of this part does not reduce burden or cost on the public 
in any way, nor does it add any costs. This burden ended in 2003. 
Kaho`olawe Island was used by the armed forces of the United States as 
a training area, including bombing and gunnery training ranges, under 
authority granted by Executive Order No. 10436 of February 20, 1953. 
The Commanding Officer, Naval Base Pearl Harbor controlled entry to the 
area. Title X of the Fiscal Year 1994 Department of Defense
