Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to modify and reissue a current DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)-013 Alien Health Records System.'' This system of records allows the Department to maintain records that document the health screening, examination, and treatment of aliens arrested by the Department and detained by ICE for civil immigration purposes in facilities where the ICE Health Service Corps (IHSC) provides or oversees the provision of care. As a result of a review of this system, the Department is updating this system of records to include two new routine uses to describe how the Department may share information from this system. The purpose of this system is also being updated to include the new IHSC Patient Medical Record Portal (the ``Portal''), whereby individuals discharged from Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities (either released from custody or removed from the United States) can log in and get a copy of their electronic medical record. As a result, a new category of records is being maintained in this system of records to support login capability for the Patient Medical Record Portal. Finally, this notice includes non- substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. This modified system will be included in the DHS inventory of record systems.
Marine Casualty Reporting Property Damage Thresholds
The Coast Guard is amending the monetary property damage threshold amounts for reporting a marine casualty and for reporting a type of marine casualty called a ``serious marine incident.'' The original regulations that set these dollar threshold amounts were written in the 1980s and have not been updated since that time. Because the monetary thresholds for reporting have not kept pace with inflation, vessel owners and operators have been required to report relatively minor casualties. Additionally, the original regulations require mandatory drug and alcohol testing following a serious marine incident. As a result, vessel owners and operators are conducting testing for casualties that are less significant than those intended to be captured by the original regulations. Updating the original regulations will reduce the burden on vessel owners and operators, and will also reduce the amount of Coast Guard resources expended to investigate these incidents.
Safety Zone; Pittsburgh Pirates Fireworks, Allegheny River, Pittsburgh, PA
The Coast Guard will enforce safety zones for the Pittsburgh Pirates Fireworks on the Allegheny River, extending the entire width of the river, from mile 0.2 to 0.8 in Pittsburgh, PA. The safety zones are necessary to protect vessels transiting the area and event spectators from the hazards associated with the Pittsburgh Pirates barge-based firework displays following certain home games throughout the season. During the enforcement period, entry into, transiting, or anchoring in the safety zones is prohibited to all vessels not registered with the sponsor as participants or official patrol vessels, unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Marine Safety Unit Pittsburgh (COTP) or a designated representative.
Special Local Regulation; Clinch River, Oak Ridge, TN
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary special local regulation for all navigable waters of the Clinch River, extending the entire width of the river, from mile marker (MM) 49.5 to MM 52.0. This special local regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters near Oak Ridge, TN during the Cardinal Invitational Regatta marine event. Entry into, transiting through, or anchoring within this regulated area is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) or a designated representative.
Consolidated Cruise Ship Security Regulations
The Coast Guard is issuing a final rule to eliminate outdated regulations that imposed unnecessary screening requirements on cruise ships and cruise ship terminals. This final rule replaces these outdated regulations with simpler, consolidated regulations that provide efficient and clear requirements for the screening of baggage, personal items, and persons on a cruise ship. This final rule will enhance the security of cruise ship terminals and allow terminal operators to use effective screening mechanisms with minimal impact to business operations.
