DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Office of the Secretary 32 CFR Part 329 [Docket ID: DOD–2019–OS–0053] List of Subjects in 32 CFR Part 329 RIN 0790–AK73 Privacy. National Guard Bureau Privacy Program National Guard Bureau, DoD. Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: This final rule removes DoD’s regulation concerning the National Guard Bureau Privacy Program. On April 11, 2019, the Department of Defense published a revised DoD-level Privacy Program rule, which contains the necessary information for an agencywide privacy program regulation under the Privacy Act and now serves as the single Privacy Program rule for the Department. That revised Privacy Program rule also includes all DoD component exemption rules. Therefore, this part is now unnecessary and may be removed from the CFR. DATES: This rule is effective on March 17, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Nikolaisen at 703–601–6884. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DoD now has a single DoD-level Privacy Program rule at 32 CFR part 310 (84 FR 14728) that contains all the codified information required for the Department. The NGB Privacy Act Program regulation at 32 CFR part 329, last updated on February 5, 2014 (79 FR 6809), is no longer required and can be removed. It has been determined that publication of this CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on the removal of policies and procedures that are either now reflected in another CFR part, 32 CFR part 310, or are publicly available on the Department’s website. To the extent that NGB internal guidance concerning the implementation of the Privacy Act within the NGB is necessary, it will be issued in an internal document. This rule is one of 20 separate component Privacy rules. With the finalization of the DoD-level Privacy rule at 32 CFR part 310, the Department eliminated the need for this component Privacy rule, thereby reducing costs to the public as explained in the preamble of the DoD-level Privacy rule published on April 11, 2019, at 84 FR 14728– 14811. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 PART 329—[REMOVED] Accordingly, by the authority of 5 U.S.C. 301, 32 CFR part 329 is removed. ■ Dated: March 9, 2020. Aaron T.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Abbreviations khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis The Loop Parkway Bridge at mile 0.7, across Long Creek, Nassau, New York, has a vertical clearance of 21 feet at mean high water and 25 at mean low water. Horizontal clearance is approximately 75.5 feet. The waterway users include recreational and commercial vessels including fishing vessels. The existing drawbridge operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.799(f). In 2005, the owner of the bridge, New York State Department of Transportation, requested a temporary test deviation for an alternate drawbridge operation regulation; however, it was never followed up with a rulemaking. The bridge owner assumed since the temporary deviation was a success they made new signage reflecting the temporary deviation and have been operating the bridge under this temporary deviation for the past 15 years. After a recent construction operation the bridge operator began operating the bridge under the original 2005 regulation and USCG Sector Long Island Sound received several complaints from mariners who were upset the bridge was no longer operating under the old temporary test deviation. Based on the data that was provided by the bridge owner, the number of requested bridge openings has decreased over the years, while the vehicular traffic has increased. The schedule restricts bridge openings during vehicular rush hours allowing openings twice per hour. This schedule allows less congestion build up for vehicular traffic while providing mariners with a reliable, consistent time they can request a bridge opening. The Coast Guard is publishing this temporary deviation to test the proposed change to the bridge’s operating schedule and determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is necessary to better balance the needs of marine and rail traffic. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:33 Mar 16, 2020 Jkt 250001 Under this deviation, commercial vessels engaged in commerce, the draw shall open Monday thru Friday from 6:20 a.m. to 9:50 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. to 7:20 p.m. on signal at 20 and 50 minutes after the hour, and on signal at all other times. For all other vessels, the draw shall open on Monday thru Friday from 6:20 a.m. to 7:20 p.m. on signal at 20 and 50 minutes after the hour, and the draw shall open on Saturday, Sunday and Federal holidays from 7:20 a.m. to 8:20 p.m. on signal at 20 and 50 minutes after the hour, and on signal at all other times. The reason for these changes is to minimize excessive bridge openings which were a direct cause of accelerated deterioration of the bridge. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. There are no alternate routes. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies. 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.

I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis

    The Loop Parkway Bridge at mile 0.7, across Long Creek, Nassau, New 
York, has a vertical clearance of 21 feet at mean high water and 25 at 
mean low water. Horizontal clearance is approximately 75.5 feet. The 
waterway users include recreational and commercial vessels including 
fishing vessels. The existing drawbridge operating regulations are 
listed at 33 CFR 117.799(f).
    In 2005, the owner of the bridge, New York State Department of 
Transportation, requested a temporary test deviation for an alternate 
drawbridge operation regulation; however, it was never followed up with 
a rulemaking. The bridge owner assumed since the temporary deviation 
was a success they made new signage reflecting the temporary deviation 
and have been operating the bridge under this temporary deviation for 
the past 15 years. After a recent construction operation the bridge 
operator began operating the bridge under the original 2005 regulation 
and USCG Sector Long Island Sound received several complaints from 
mariners who were upset the bridge was no longer operating under the 
old temporary test deviation. Based on the data that was provided by 
the bridge owner, the number of requested bridge openings has decreased 
over the years, while the vehicular traffic has increased. The schedule 
restricts bridge openings during vehicular rush hours allowing openings 
twice per hour. This schedule allows less congestion build up for 
vehicular traffic while providing mariners with a reliable, consistent 
time they can request a bridge opening. The Coast Guard is publishing 
this temporary deviation to test the proposed change to the bridge's 
operating schedule and determine whether a permanent change to the 
schedule is necessary to better balance the needs of marine and rail 
traffic.
    Under this deviation, commercial vessels engaged in commerce, the 
draw shall open Monday thru Friday from 6:20 a.m. to 9:50 a.m. and 3:20 
p.m. to 7:20 p.m. on signal at 20 and 50 minutes after the hour, and on 
signal at all other times. For all other vessels, the draw shall open 
on Monday thru Friday from 6:20 a.m. to 7:20 p.m. on signal at 20 and 
50 minutes after the hour, and the draw shall open on Saturday, Sunday 
and Federal holidays from 7:20 a.m. to 8:20 p.m. on signal at 20 and 50 
minutes after the hour, and on signal at all other times. The reason 
for these changes is to minimize excessive bridge openings which were a 
direct cause of accelerated deterioration of the bridge.
    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may 
do so at any time. There are no alternate routes. The bridge will be 
able to open for emergencies.
    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.
