[DHS Docket No. OGC-RP-04-001]


Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, DHS.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This regulatory agenda is a semiannual summary of all current 
and projected rulemakings, existing regulations, and completed actions 
of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its components. This 
agenda provides the public with information about DHS's regulatory 
activity. DHS expects that this information will enable the public to 
be more aware of, and effectively participate in, the Department's 
regulatory activity. DHS invites the public to submit comments on any 
aspect of this agenda.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 

General

    Please direct general comments and inquiries on the agenda to the 
Regulatory Affairs Law Division, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, 
Office of the General Counsel, 245 Murray Lane, Mail Stop 0485, 
Washington, DC 20528-0485.

 Specific

    Please direct specific comments and inquiries on individual 
regulatory actions identified in this agenda to the individual listed 
in the summary of the regulation as the point of contact for that 
regulation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DHS provides this notice pursuant to the 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354, Sep. 
19, 1980) and Executive Order 12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review'' 
(Sep. 30, 1993) as incorporated in Executive Order 13563 ``Improving 
Regulation & Regulatory Review'' (Jan. 18, 2011), which require the 
Department to publish a semiannual agenda of regulations. The 
regulatory agenda is a summary of all current and projected 
rulemakings, as well as actions completed since the publication of the 
last regulatory agenda for the Department. DHS's last semiannual 
regulatory agenda was published on July 7, 2011, at 76 FR 40074.
    Beginning in fall 2007, the Internet became the basic means for 
disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda is 
available online at www.reginfo.gov.
    As part of the Unified Agenda, Federal agencies are also required 
to prepare a Regulatory Plan of the most important significant 
regulatory actions that the agency reasonably expects to issue in 
proposed or final form in that fiscal year. As in past years, for fall 
editions of the Unified Agenda, the entire Regulatory Plan and agency 
regulatory flexibility agendas, in accordance with the publication 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, are printed in the 
Federal Register.
    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602) requires federal 
agencies to publish their regulatory flexibility agenda in the Federal 
Register. A regulatory flexibility agenda shall contain, among other 
things, ``a brief description of the subject area of any rule which is 
likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities.'' DHS's printed agenda entries include regulatory 
actions that are in the Department's regulatory flexibility agenda. 
Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain information 
required by the agenda provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. 
Additional information on these entries is available in the Unified 
Agenda published on the Internet.
    The semiannual agenda of the Department conforms to the Unified 
Agenda format developed by the Regulatory Information Service Center.

    Dated: September 9, 2011.
Christina E. McDonald,
Associate General Counsel for Regulatory Affairs.

Delegation Number 0700
    Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is proposing to 
amend its Homeland Security Acquisition Regulation (HSAR) parts 3016 
and 3052 to require DHS contracts for time and material or labor hours 
(T&M/LH) to include separate labor hour rates for subcontractors and a

Petitions on Behalf of Aliens Subject to Numerical Limitations

    Legal Authority: 8 U.S.C. 1184(g)
    Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security will finalize its 
regulations governing petitions filed on behalf of alien workers 
subject to annual numerical limitations. This rule proposes to 
establish an electronic registration program for petitions subject to 
numerical limitations for the H-1B nonimmigrant classification. This 
action is necessary because the demand for H-1B specialty occupation 
workers by U.S. companies may exceed the numerical limitation. This 
rule is intended to allow USCIS to more efficiently manage the intake 
and lottery process for these H-1B petitions.

376. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Transitional Worker 
Classification

    Legal Authority: Pub. L. 110-229
    Abstract: On October 27, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security 
published an interim rule creating a new, temporary, Commonwealth of 
the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI)-only transitional worker 
classification (CW classification) in accordance with title VII of the 
Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 (CNRA). The CW 
classification is intended to provide for an orderly transition from 
the CNMI permit system to the U.S. Federal immigration system under the 
immigration laws of the United States, including the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (INA). This final rule implements the CW classification 
and establishes that a CW transitional worker is an alien worker who is 
ineligible for another classification under the INA and who performs 
services or labor for an employer in the CNMI during the five-year 
transition period. CNMI employers may now petition for such workers. 
The rule also establishes employment authorization incident to CW 
status.

    Legal Authority: 33 U.S.C. 2713 and 2714
    Abstract: This rulemaking implements section 1013 (Claims 
Procedures) and section 1014 (Designation of Source and Advertisement) 
of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA). An interim rule was published 
in 1992, and provides the basic requirements for the filing of claims 
for uncompensated removal costs or damages resulting from the discharge 
of oil, for the designation of the sources of the discharge, and for 
the advertisement of where claims are to be filed. The interim rule 
also includes the processing of natural resource damage (NRD) claims. 
The NRD claims, however, were not processed until September 25, 1997, 
when the Department of Justice issued an opinion that the Oil Spill 
Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF) is available, without further 
appropriation, to pay trustee NRD

378. Marine Transportation-Related Facility Response Plans for 
Hazardous Substances

    Legal Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1321(j); Pub. L. 101-380; Pub. L. 108-
293
    Abstract: This project would implement provisions of the Oil 
Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) that require an owner or operator of a 
marine transportation-related facility transferring bulk hazardous 
substances to develop and operate in accordance with an approved 
response plan. The regulations would apply to marine transportation-
related facilities that, because of their location, could cause harm to 
the environment by discharging a hazardous substance into or on the 
navigable waters or adjoining shoreline. A separate rulemaking, under 
RIN 1625-AA13, was developed in tandem with this rulemaking and 
addresses hazardous substances response plan requirements for tank 
vessels. This project supports the Coast Guard's broad roles and 
responsibilities of maritime safety and maritime stewardship by 
reducing the consequence of pollution incidents. This action is 
considered significant because of substantial public and industry 
interest.

379. Numbering of Undocumented Barges

    Legal Authority: 46 U.S.C. 12301
    Abstract: Title 46 U.S.C. 12301, as amended by the Abandoned Barge 
Act of 1992, requires that all undocumented barges of more than 100 
gross tons operating on the navigable waters of the United States be 
numbered. This rulemaking would establish a numbering system for these 
barges. The numbering of undocumented barges will allow identification 
of owners of barges found abandoned. This rulemaking supports the Coast 
Guard's broad role and responsibility of maritime stewardship.

    Abstract: The Coast Guard proposes certain additions, changes, and 
amendments to 33 CFR, subchapter H. Subchapter H is comprised of parts 
101 through 106. Subchapter H implements the major provisions of the 
Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002. This rulemaking is the 
first major revision to subchapter H. The proposed changes would 
further the goals of domestic compliance and international cooperation 
by incorporating requirements from legislation implemented since the 
original publication of these regulations, such as the SAFE Port Act, 
and including

international standards such as STCW security training. This rulemaking 
has international interest because of the close relationship between 
subchapter H and the International Ship and Port Security Code (ISPS).

including regulations on vessels carrying oil, oil pollution 
prevention, oil transfer operations, and rules for marine environmental 
protection regarding oil tank vessels, to reflect changes to 
international oil pollution standards adopted since 2004. Additionally, 
this regulation would update shipping regulations in title 46 to 
require Material Safety Data Sheets, in accordance with international 
agreements, to protect the safety of mariners at sea.

386. Commercial Fishing Industry Vessels

    Legal Authority: 46 U.S.C. 4502(a) to 4502(d); 46 U.S.C. 4505 and 
4506; 46 U.S.C. 6104; 46 U.S.C. 10603; DHS Delegation No. 0170.1(92)
    Abstract: This rulemaking would amend commercial fishing industry 
vessel requirements to enhance maritime safety. Commercial fishing 
remains one of the most dangerous industries in America. The Commercial 
Fishing Industry Vessel Safety Act of 1988 (the Act, codified in 46 
U.S.C. chapter 45) gives the Coast Guard regulatory authority to 
improve the safety of vessels operating in that industry. Although 
significant reductions in industry deaths were recorded after the Coast 
Guard issued its initial rules under the Act in 1991, we believe more 
deaths and serious injury can be avoided through compliance with new 
regulations in the following areas: Vessel stability and watertight 
integrity, vessel maintenance and safety equipment including crew 
immersion suits, crew training and drills, and improved documentation 
of regulatory compliance.
