Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Document Number: 2018-05542
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-03-19
Agency: Department of Homeland Security
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
Document Number: 2018-05467
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-03-19
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
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.

Type: Rule
Date: 2018-03-19

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-03-16
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is withdrawing its rulemaking concerning the proposed establishment of a large aircraft security program (LASP). TSA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for LASP on October 30, 2008. In the NPRM, TSA proposed that certain private and corporate aircraft operations should adopt security standards similar to those of commercial aircraft operations, including the use of security programs, crew vetting, and passenger watchlist matching. The NPRM also proposed new requirements for airports that serve the private and corporate operations. TSA held a series of public meetings and reviewed more than 7,000 public comments submitted in response to the NPRM. Based on all of the information received and a re-evaluation of the proposal in light of risk-based principles, TSA has decided not to pursue this rulemaking at this time.
