Document Number: 05-23469
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-11-29
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS announces the intent to issue Exempted Fishing Permits (EFPs), Scientific Research Permits (SRPs), Display Permits, and Chartering Permits for the collection of Atlantic highly migratory species (HMS).

Generally, these permits would be valid from the date of issuance through December 31, 2006. NMFS also announces the intent to consider issuing permits upon receiving applications from U.S. fishermen whose vessels fish for Atlantic HMS while operating under chartering arrangements within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of other nations to collect data consistent with the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) recommendations and to ensure consistency with that country's regulations without violating U.S. regulations.

Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Total Allowable Catch Amount for “Other Species” in the Groundfish Fisheries of the Gulf of Alaska
Document Number: 05-23465
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-11-29
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS issues a proposed rule that would implement Amendment 69 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska (FMP). Amendment 69, if approved, would amend the manner in which the total allowable catch (TAC) for the ``other species'' complex is annually determined in the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). The FMP amendment would allow the TAC amount for the ``other species'' complex to be set less than or equal to 5 percent of the sum of groundfish targets species in the GOA. This proposed rule would revise the maximum retainable amount (MRA) of ``other species'' in the directed arrowtooth flounder fishery from 0 to 20 percent. This action would allow conservation and management of species within the ``other species'' category and is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson- Stevens Act), the FMP, and other applicable laws.

Notice of Final Results of the Eighth Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Pasta From Italy and Determination to Revoke in Part
Document Number: 05-23459
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-11-29
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On July 22, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published the preliminary results and partial rescission of the eighth administrative review and revocation of the antidumping duty order in part, for the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy. The review covers six manufacturers/exporters: (1) Barilla G.e.R. Fratelli, S.p.A. (``Barilla'') (formerly Barilla Alimentare, S.p.A.), (2) Corticella Molini e Pastifici S.p.A. and its affiliate Pasta Combattenti S.p.A. (``Corticella''), (3) Industrie Alimentare Colavita, S.p.A. (``Indalco''), (4) Pastificio F.lli Pagani S.p.A. (``Pagani''), (5) Pastificio Antonio Pallante S.r.L. and its affiliate Vitelli Foods LLC (``Pallante''), and (6) Pastificio Riscossa F.lli Mastromauro, S.r.L. (``Riscossa''). The period of review (``POR'') is July 1, 2003, through June 30, 2004. As a result of our analysis of the comments received, these final results differ from the preliminary results. We have also determined to revoke the antidumping duty order with respect to subject merchandise produced and also exported by Pallante because the company sold the subject merchandise at not less than normal value (``NV'') for a period of at least three consecutive years. See 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2) and the ``Revocation'' section of this notice. The final results are listed in the ``Final Results of Review'' section below.

Document Number: 05-23457
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-11-29
Agency: Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), is issuing this Record of Decision (ROD) regarding its plan for continued operation of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory located approximately 40 miles east of San Francisco in Alameda and San Joaquin Counties; and for use of plutonium, other fissile materials, fissionable materials and lithium hydride in experiments to be conducted at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). In making its decisions NNSA considered the ``Final Site-wide Environmental Impact Statement for Continued Operation of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (DOE/EIS-0348) and Supplemental Stockpile Stewardship and Management Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (DOE/EIS-0236-S3) (LLNL SW/SPEIS)'' and other information, including programmatic mission needs and cost. NNSA has decided to implement the Proposed Action Alternative as described in the LLNL SW/ SPEIS with the exception of the Energetic Materials Processing Center Replacement and High Explosives Development Center Project. This alternative includes the continued operation of LLNL; an increase in administrative and material-at-risk limits for plutonium and tritium; and the use of plutonium, other fissile materials, fissionable materials, and lithium hydride in experiments conducted at the NIF. NNSA's implementation of the individual components of the Proposed Action Alternative during the next decade is subject to its continuing assessment of its mission needs and of LLNL's role in meeting those needs.
Missouri Regulatory Program
Document Number: 05-23456
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-11-29
Agency: Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement Office
We, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM), are announcing receipt of a proposed amendment to the Missouri regulatory program (Missouri program) under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA or the Act). Missouri intends to revise its program to improve operational efficiency. Currently, we are substituting direct Federal enforcement for portions of the Missouri program. With the substitution of Federal enforcement authority, we outlined a process by which Missouri could regain full authority for its program. As part of this process, Missouri proposes to amend its approved regulatory program and submitted a temporary emergency regulatory program rule (emergency rule). The purpose of the emergency rule is to revise Missouri's regulations regarding bonding of surface coal mining and reclamation operations to allow Missouri to transition from a ``bond pool'' approach to a ``full cost bond'' approach. We are announcing receipt of the emergency rule in this rulemaking. Missouri has indicated that, in the near future, it will submit a permanent regulatory program rule (permanent rule) regarding its bonding regulations and that this rule will contain regulatory language that is substantially identical to the language in this emergency rule. If we approve the emergency rule and Missouri submits the permanent rule with language that has the same meaning as the emergency rule, we will publish a final rule and the permanent rule will become part of the Missouri program. This document gives the times and locations that the Missouri program and proposed amendment to that program are available for your inspection, the comment period during which you may submit written comments on the amendment, and the procedures that we will follow for the public hearing, if one is requested.
