The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to amend the Bottlenose Dolphin Take Reduction Plan (BDTRP) and its implementing regulations under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA). The amendment is needed to reduce incidental serious injury and mortality of strategic stocks of bottlenose dolphins in Virginia pound net fishing gear, and to provide consistent state and federal regulations for Virginia pound net fishing gear. This rule proposes the year-round use of modified pound net leaders for offshore Virginia pound nets in specified waters of the lower mainstem Chesapeake Bay and coastal state waters. Virginia pound net-related definitions, gear prohibitions, and non-regulatory measures are also proposed. Both regulatory and non-regulatory measures proposed in this rule are based on the Bottlenose Dolphin Take Reduction Team's (BDTRT) consensus recommendations. For consistency, NMFS also proposes to amend current regulations and definitions for Virginia pound nets under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) for sea turtle conservation.

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) (44 U.S.C. Sec. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning its proposed renewal of Financial Management Survey, OMB No. 3045-0102. The Financial Management Survey collects information from new grantees about their financial management and internal control systems so the CNCS can determine if appropriate systems are in place to manage federal grant funds or, if not, to identify training and technical assistance a new grantee may need to develop and implement appropriate systems. The CNCS requires new grantees which have never before received Corporation funds to complete the form. Completion of this survey is required as an element of CNCS' risk assessment process, but is independent from the competitive grant process. Copies of the information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the Addresses section of this Notice.
