The Technical Report Session provides an opportunity for the final Technical Committee Report (i.e., the ROP and ROC) on each proposed new or revised code or standard to be presented to the NFPA membership for the debate and consideration of motions to amend the Report. Before making an allowable motion at a Technical Report Session, the intended maker of the motion must file, in advance of the session, and within the published deadline, a Notice of Intent to Make a Motion. A Motions Committee appointed by the Standards Council then reviews all notices and certifies all amending motions that are proper. Only these Certified Amending Motions, together with certain allowable FollowUp Motions (that is, motions that have become necessary as a result of previous successful amending motions) will be allowed at the Technical Report Session. The specific rules for the types of motions that can be made are who can make them are set forth in NFPA’s Regulation Governing Committee Projects which should always be consulted by those wishing to bring an issue before the membership at a Technical Report Session.

On July 12, 2005, notice was published in the Federal Register (70 FR 40004) that a request for a scientific research permit to take green, Kemp’s ridley, loggerhead, and hawksbill sea turtles had been submitted by the applicant. The requested permit has been issued under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\17NON1.SGM 17NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 221 / Thursday, November 17, 2005 / Notices Researchers will capture up to 106 green, 1 Kemp’s ridley, 1 loggerhead, and 1 hawksbill sea turtles by tended pound-net or dip-net over the course of the three year permit. All turtles will be measured, weighed, blood sampled, flipper tagged, Passive Integrated Transponder tagged, fecal sampled if large enough, and released. All green turtles will be gastric lavaged. A subset of green turtles will also have a satellite transmitter or sonic and radio receivers attached to their carapace. The research will gather information on turtle habitat, genetic origin, size and age composition, species distribution, and health status. This information will be used to develop conservation management measures for these species. The research will occur in the waters of the Big Sable Creek complex in southwest Florida. The permit is issued for a 3–year period. Issuance of this permit, as required by the ESA, was based on a finding that such permit (1) was applied for in good faith, (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of any endangered or threatened species, and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject permit is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the Regulations Governing the Taking and Importing of Marine Mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 222–226), and the Fur Seal Act of 1966, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1151 et seq.). The Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums members participate in multiple research and husbandry programs with the overall objective to study and document the health and biology of wild marine mammals as well as those marine mammals maintained in public display, research, or stranding facilities. To fully achieve this objective, the applicant is requesting a permit to import/export parts and specimen samples (hard and soft parts) collected from all species of marine mammals (all cetaceans and pinnipeds, except for walrus). The majority of the specimens will be obtained from animals maintained in Alliance member facilities for public display. However, specimens from stranded animals and those involved in legally authorized research projects would also be covered by this permit. Topics of particular interest include diseases of marine mammals, effects of environmental contaminants, artificial PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69743 insemination, stock structure, age determination, mortality determinations, pregnancy rates, calf production, feeding habits and nutrition, and distribution. Parts and specimen samples may be taken at any time during the year and in all areas worldwide. The requested duration of the permit is five years. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement.
