Notice of minimum random drug testing rate. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard has set the calendar year 2006 minimum random drug testing rate at 50 percent of covered crewmembers. Based upon an evaluation of the 2004 Management Information System (MIS) data collection forms submitted by marine employers, we will maintain the minimum random drug testing at 50 percent of covered crewmembers for the calendar year 2006. The purpose of setting a minimum random drug testing rate is to establish a measure of deterrence for the illegal use of controlled substances. DATES: The minimum random drug testing rate is effective January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2006. You must submit your 2005 MIS reports no later than March 15, 2006. ADDRESSES: The annual MIS report may be submitted in writing to Commandant (G–MOA), U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters, 2100 Second Street, SW., Room 2404, Washington, DC 20593– 0001 or by electronic submission to the following Internet address: http:// www.uscg.mil/hq/g-m/moa/dapip.htm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under 46 CFR 16.230, the Coast Guard requires marine employers to establish random drug testing programs for covered crewmembers on inspected and uninspected vessels. All marine employers are required to collect and maintain a record of drug testing program data for each calendar year, January 1 through December 31. You must submit this data by 15 March of the following year to the Coast Guard in an annual MIS report. You may either submit your own MIS report or have a consortium or other PO 00000 Frm 00119 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76853 employer representative submit the data in a consolidated MIS report. The chemical drug testing data is essential to analyze our current approach for deterring and detecting illegal drug abuse in the maritime industry. Since 2004 MIS data indicates that the positive random testing rate is greater than one percent industry-wide (1.53 percent), the Coast Guard announces that the minimum random drug testing rate is set at 50 percent of covered employees for the period of January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2006 in accordance with 46 CFR 16.230(e). Each year we will publish a notice reporting the results of the previous calendar year’s MIS data, and the minimum annual percentage rate for random drug testing for the next calendar year.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Fish and Wildlife Service regulates the 
subsistence take of migratory birds in Alaska through regulations in 50 
CFR part 92. The Service published a notice of decision in the Federal 
Register on March 28, 2000, (65 FR 16405) that established regional 
management bodies in Alaska to develop recommendations related to 
subsistence harvest. The notice of decision also established a single 
statewide management body consisting of representatives from each of 
the regions and one representative each from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Membership on the 
11 regional bodies comprises subsistence users from each of the active 
regions. The Service contracted with 11 partner organizations to 
organize and support the regional bodies.
    Since 2000, the Co-management Council partner organization 
representing Southeast Alaska has been the Central Council. However, 
the Central Council notified the Service, by letter dated September 16, 
2005, of its request to cease the present regional partnership with the 
Co-management Council, and recommended that the Southeast Alaska Inter-
Tribal Fish and Wildlife Commission could potentially be a good 
replacement. The Co-management Council met in Anchorage on September 
29, 2005, and unanimously selected the Southeast Alaska Inter-Tribal 
Fish and Wildlife Commission as the new regional partner to represent 
Southeast Alaska.
    Since 2000, the Co-management Council partner organization 
representing the Kodiak Archipelago has been the Kodiak Area Native 
Association. However, the Kodiak Area Native Association notified the 
Service, by letter dated November 3, 2005, of its request to cease the 
present regional partnership with the Co-management Council, and 
recommended that the Shoonaq' Tribe of Kodiak could potentially be a 
good replacement. The Co-management Council voted by polling on 
November 21, 2005, and selected the Shoonaq' Tribe of Alaska as the new 
regional partner to represent Kodiak, Alaska.
    These two new Co-management Council partner organizations will 
ensure continuity of communication with the subsistence users of their 
regions to establish and maintain local representation on their 
regional management bodies. Partners are also responsible for 
coordinating meetings within their regions, soliciting proposals and 
keeping the villages informed.
