Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Public Workshop, 36555-36556 [05-12584]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 121 / Friday, June 24, 2005 / Proposed Rules reportable. We cited, as an example, administrative actions, such as limited training permits, limited licenses for telemedicine, fines or citations that do not restrict a practitioner’s practice, or personnel actions for tardiness, that were not within the range of actions intended by the statute. As a result, we agreed to add a clarifying phrase to this term. The revised definition would exclude administrative fines or citations, corrective action plans and other personnel actions, unless they are (1) connected to the billing, provision or delivery of health care services, and (2) taken in conjunction with other licensure or certification actions such as revocation, suspension, censure, reprimand, probation, or surrender. However, we inadvertently omitted this clarifying language to the regulations text of the rule itself. Therefore, to be consistent with the intended clarification and the overall intent of the final rulemaking, we are correcting this inadvertent error in the definition of the term ‘‘any other negative action or finding’’ that appeared on page 57759 in the October 26, 1999 final regulations to include this additional clarifying language. Comments should be addressed specifically to the issue of clarifying the existing definition of the term in question in accordance with the earlier final rulemaking. Response to Public Comments Comments will be available for public inspection beginning on July 8, 2005 in Room 5518 of the Office of Inspector General at 330 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington DC, on Monday through Friday of each week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., (202) 619–0089. Because of the number of comments we normally receive on regulations, we will not acknowledge or respond to them individually. However, we will consider all timely and appropriate comments when developing the final corrections amendment. Billing and transportation services, Durable medical equipment suppliers and manufacturers, Health care insurers, Health maintenance organizations, Health professions, Home health care agencies, Hospitals, Penalties, Pharmaceutical suppliers and manufacturers, Privacy, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Skilled nursing facilities. Therefore, 45 CFR part 61 is proposed to be amended by making the following correcting amendment: 16:57 Jun 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 1. The authority citation for part 61 would continue to read as follows: Authority: 42 U.S.C. 1320a-7e. 2. Section 61.3 would be amended by republishing the introductory text, and by revising the definition for the term ‘‘Any other negative action or finding’’ to read as follows: § 61.3 Definitions. The following definitions apply to this part: * * * * * Any other negative action or finding by a Federal or State licensing agency means any action or finding that under the State’s law is publicly available information, and rendered by a licensing authority, including but not limited to, limitations on the scope of practice, liquidations, injunctions and forfeitures. This definition also includes final adverse actions rendered by a Federal or State licensing or certification authority, such as exclusions, revocations or suspension of license or certification that occur in conjunction with settlements in which no finding of liability has been made (although such a settlement itself is not reportable under the statute). This definition excludes administrative fines or citations and corrective action plans and other personnel actions, unless they are: (1) Connected to the delivery of health care services; and (2) taken in conjunction with other licensure or certification actions such as revocation, suspension, censure, reprimand, probation or surrender. * * * * * Dated: June 20, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The North Pacific Fisheries Management 
Council is developing proposed Amendment 80 to the Fishery Management 
Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Area (FMP). 
Amendment 80 would allocate prohibited species and target species other 
than Pacific cod and pollock to trawl catcher/processor vessels that 
are not qualified to fish for pollock under the AFA. One aspect of the 
analysis of alternatives being developed for Amendment 80 includes 
options for catch monitoring, weighing, and accounting standards for 
the non-AFA trawl catcher/processor sector. NMFS is conducting the June 
27, 2005, workshop so that interested industry members may provide 
guidance to NMFS on the development and implementation of these 
standards.
    This workshop is not intended to be a forum for providing public 
comment on the proposed rule to implement proposed Amendment 79 to the 
FMP. That proposed rule also would establish catch monitoring standards 
for some vessels within the non-AFA trawl catcher/processor sector. 
Written comments on Amendment 79 may be submitted to NMFS consistent 
with the protocol set forth in the preamble to the proposed rule 
published in the Federal Register on June 16, 2005 (70 FR 35054).
    This workshop is physically accessible to people with disabilities.
