Collection of Information Under Review by Office of Management and Budget
In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 the U.S. Coast Guard is forwarding Information Collection Requests (ICRs), abstracted below, to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), requesting approval of a Reinstatement, with change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired for the following collection of information: 1625-0011, Applications for Private Aids to Navigation and for Class I Private Aids to Navigation on Artificial Islands and Fixed Structures. Review and comments by OIRA ensure we only impose paperwork burdens commensurate with our performance of duties.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Trent River, New Bern, NC
The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the US 70/Alfred C. Cunningham Bridge across the Trent River, mile 0.0, at New Bern, NC. The deviation is necessary to allow the annual Neuse River Bridge Run participants to safely complete their race without interruptions from bridge openings. This deviation allows the bridge draw span to remain in the closed-to-navigation position for three hours to accommodate the race.
Navigation and Navigable Waters; Technical, Organizational, and Conforming Amendments
The Coast Guard published a final rule in the Federal Register on July 7, 2014, making non-substantive corrections throughout Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations. In that final rule, the Coast Guard revised a paragraph because it duplicated the substance of another paragraph within the same section of an existing regulation. In correcting that error, the Coast Guard inadvertently removed four paragraphs from its regulations. This correction resolves that error by replacing the four paragraphs that we inadvertently removed.
Personal Flotation Devices Labeling and Standards
The Coast Guard published a final rule in the Federal Register on September 22, 2014, which removes references to type codes in its regulations on the carriage and labeling of Coast Guard-approved personal flotation devices. Two extra characters were included in the phone number for the Coast Guard person to contact for more information about that rule. This document corrects that phone number.
