The Coast Guard announces a public meeting to receive comments on a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ``Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Illinois Waterway, Joliet, IL'' that was published in the Federal Register on August 27, 2014.

Anchorage Regulations: Anchorage Grounds, Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors, California
Document Number: 2014-28449
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-12-03
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is disestablishing Commercial Anchorage ``A'' and is revising the permission and notification requirements in the regulations for the anchorage grounds of Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors, California. Commercial Anchorage ``A'' has become the location of a Submerged Material Storage Site and is no longer usable. Revised permission and notification requirements affect the six commercial anchorages within the breakwater of the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach that can accommodate vessels with lengths exceeding 800 feet overall and drafts greater than 40 feet. This revision requires vessels using these deep draft anchorages for more than 48 hours to obtain extended anchorage permission from the Captain of the Port (COTP) Los Angeles-Long Beach. This action will assist the COTP and the Pilots for the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to reduce congestion in the deep draft anchorage grounds within the harbor breakwater.

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security/Immigration and Customs Enforcement-005 Trade Transparency Analysis and Research (TTAR) System of Records.'' This system of records is being modified to (1) update existing and include new categories of individuals, (2) clarify existing and include new categories of records, (3) reflect a proposed change to the retention period of the system's data, and (4) update the description of the record sources. In addition, the Department is notifying the public of changes triggered by the replacement of the TTAR SORN's associated IT system, the Data Analysis and Research for Trade Transparency System (DARTTS), with FALCON-DARTTS, which replicates the functionality of and serves the same user groups as legacy DARTTS. The TTAR SORN is also being updated to expand coverage to a new IT system called FALCON- Roadrunner. The FALCON-DARTTS and FALCON-Roadrunner Privacy Impact Assessments are posted on the Department privacy Web site (see www.dhs.gov/privacy). The exemptions for the existing system of records notice will continue to be applicable for this system of records notice. This updated system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.
