FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 33 CFR Part 117 [Docket No. USCG–2018–1028] Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Snohomish River, Everett, WA Coast Guard, DHS. ACTION: Notice of temporary deviation from regulations. AGENCY: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company (BNSF) Railroad Bridge (BNSF Bridge 37.0) across the Snohomish River, mile 3.5 near Everett, WA. The deviation is necessary to accommodate scheduled replacement of bridge ties across the swing span replacement. The deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position. DATES: This deviation is effective from 11 a.m. on November 26, 2018 to 3 p.m. on December 14, 2018. ADDRESSES: The docket for this deviation, USCG–2018–1028 is available at http://www.regulations.gov. Type the docket number in the ‘‘SEARCH’’ box SUMMARY: BNSF has requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule for the BNSF Bridge 37.0, mile 3.5, across the Snohomish River, near Everett, WA. BNSF requested for BNSF Bridge 37.0 be allowed to remain in the closed-tonavigation position for swing span maintenance. This maintenance will improve the reliability of the bridge for marine openings. The normal operating schedule for the subject bridge is in 33 CFR 117.5. BNSF Bridge 37.0 is a swing bridge and provides 9 feet of vertical clearance above mean high water elevation while in the closed-tonavigation position. This deviation allows the BNSF Bridge 37.0 to remain in the closed-tonavigation position, and need not open for maritime traffic from 11 a.m. on November 26, 2018 to 3 p.m. on December 14, 2018 per the table below: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: From time/date To time/date 11 a.m./Nov 26, 2018 .................................................................. 11 a.m./Dec 3, 2018 .................................................................... 11 a.m./Dec 10, 2018 .................................................................. 3 p.m./Nov 30, 2018 ................................................................... 3 p.m./Dec 7, 2018 ..................................................................... 3 p.m./Dec 14, 2018 ................................................................... The bridge shall operate in accordance to 33 CFR 117.5 at all other times. Vessels able to pass through the subject bridge in the closed-tonavigation position may do so at any time. The bridge will be required to open, if needed, for vessels engaged in emergency response operations during this closure period. Waterway usage on this part of the Snohomish River includes tug and barge to small pleasure craft. The BNSF Bridge 37.0 receives an average number of three opening request during this time of year. BNSF has coordinated with Snohomish River users that frequently request bridge openings during this time of year. An alternate route for vessels to pass is available through Steamboat Slough to the north. 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 vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.

In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridges must return to their 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. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Dated: November 9, 2018. Steven M.

In addition to the direct final SNURs, elsewhere in the same issue of the Federal Register of September 17, 2018 (83 FR 47026) (FRL–9983–59), EPA issued proposed SNURs covering these 28 chemical substances.

Good Cause Finding EPA determined that this document is not subject to the 30-day delay of effective date generally required by the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(d)) because of the time limitations for publication in the Federal Register. This document must publish on or before the effective date of the direct final rule containing the direct final SNURs being withdrawn. IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This action withdraws regulatory requirements that have not gone into effect and which contain no new or amended requirements and reopens a comment period. As such, the Agency has determined that this action will not have any adverse impacts, economic or otherwise. The statutory and Executive Order review requirements applicable to PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 the direct final rules were discussed in the September 17, 2018 Federal Register (83 FR 47004).

chemical substances, which were the subject of premanufacture notices 
(PMNs). EPA published these SNURs using direct final rulemaking 
procedures, which requires EPA to take certain actions if an adverse 
comment is received. EPA received adverse comments and a request to 
extend the comment period regarding the SNURs

identified in the direct final rule. Therefore, the Agency is 
withdrawing the direct final rule SNURs identified in this document, as 
required under the direct final rulemaking procedures.

DATES: The direct final rule published at 83 FR 47004 on September 17, 
2018 is withdrawn effective November 16, 2018.

ADDRESSES: The docket for this action, identified by docket

Toxics Docket (OPPT Docket), Environmental Protection Agency Docket

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Does this action apply to me?

    A list of potentially affected entities is provided in the Federal 
Register of September 17, 2018 (83 FR 47004) (FRL-9983-14). If you have 
questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular 
entity, consult the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What direct final SNURs are being withdrawn?

    In the Federal Register of September 17, 2018 (83 FR 47004) (FRL-
9983-14), EPA issued direct final SNURs for 28 chemical substances that 
are identified in the document. Because the Agency received adverse 
comments and a request to extend the comment period regarding the SNURs 
identified in the document, EPA is withdrawing the direct final SNURs 
issued for these 28 chemical substances, which were the subject of 
PMNs. In addition to the direct final SNURs, elsewhere in the same 
issue of the Federal Register of September 17, 2018 (83 FR 47026) (FRL-
9983-59), EPA issued proposed SNURs covering these 28 chemical 
substances. EPA will address all adverse public comments in a 
subsequent final rule, based on the proposed rule.

III. Good Cause Finding

    EPA determined that this document is not subject to the 30-day 
delay of effective date generally required by the Administrative 
Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(d)) because of the time limitations 
for publication in the Federal Register. This document must publish on 
or before the effective date of the direct final rule containing the 
direct final SNURs being withdrawn.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This action withdraws regulatory requirements that have not gone 
into effect and which contain no new or amended requirements and 
reopens a comment period. As such, the Agency has determined that this 
action will not have any adverse impacts, economic or otherwise. The 
statutory and Executive Order review requirements applicable to the 
direct final rules were discussed in the September 17, 2018 Federal 
Register (83 FR 47004). Those review requirements do not apply to this 
action because it is a withdrawal and does not contain any new or 
amended requirements.

V. Congressional Review Act (CRA)

    Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), 
EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required 
information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and 
the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of 
the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' 
as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Section 808 of the CRA allows the 
issuing agency to make a rule effective sooner than otherwise provided 
by CRA if the agency makes a good cause finding that notice and public 
procedure is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest. As required by 5 U.S.C. 808(2), this determination is 
supported by a brief statement in Unit III.
