The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone encompassing certain waters of the Potomac River and Anacostia River.

This rule prohibits vessels and people from entering the security zone and requires vessels and persons in the security zone to depart the security zone, unless specifically exempt under the provisions in this rule or granted specific permission from the Coast Guard Captain of the Port Baltimore.

Type: Rule
Date: 2013-01-23
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
By this direct final rule, the Coast Guard is removing the Decker Island restricted anchorage area in the Sacramento River.

The United States Army relinquished control of the island in 1975, and the restricted anchorage area is no longer necessary.

The Coast Guard has set the calendar year 2013 minimum random drug testing rate at 25 percent of covered crewmembers. The Coast Guard will continue to closely monitor drug test reporting to ensure the quality of the information. The Coast Guard may set the rate back up to 50 percent of covered crewmembers if the positive rate for random drug tests is greater than 1 percent for any one year, or if the quality of data is not sufficient to accurately assess the positive rate.

Document Number: 2013-01234
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-01-23
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Commander, Ninth Coast Guard District is staying (suspending) reporting requirements under the Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) established for barges loaded with certain dangerous cargoes (CDC barges) in the inland rivers of the Ninth Coast Guard District. This stay (suspension) extension is necessary because the Coast Guard continues to analyze future reporting needs and evaluate possible changes in CDC reporting requirements. This stay (suspension) of the CDC reporting requirements in no way relieves towing vessel operators and fleeting area managers responsible for CDC barges in the RNA from their dangerous cargo or vessel arrival and movement reporting obligations currently in effect under other regulations or placed into effect under appropriate Coast Guard authority.
