ACTION: Interim final rule; extension of comment period. AGENCY: The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is extending the comment period for the interim final rule making amendments to procedures for designating classes of employees as members of the Special Exposure Cohort under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Program Act (EEOICPA), which was published in the Federal Register on Thursday, December 22, 2005.

Information requests may also be submitted by email to OCAS@CDC.GOV. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 22, 2005, HHS published an interim final rule with request for SUMMARY: * * * * (d) Electronic mail records may not be deleted or otherwise disposed of without prior disposition authority from NARA (44 U.S.C. 3303a). (1) Electronic mail records with very short-term (transitory) value. Agencies may use the disposition authority in General Records Schedule 23, Item 7, or on a NARA-approved agency records schedule for electronic mail records that have very short-term retention periods of 180 days or less. (See § 1234.24(b)(2)). (2) Other records in an electronic mail system. When an agency has taken the necessary steps to retain a record in a scheduled recordkeeping system (whether electronic or paper), the identical version that remains on the user’s screen or in the user’s electronic mailbox has no continuing value. Therefore, NARA has authorized deletion of the version of the record in the electronic mail system under General Records Schedule 20, Item 14, after the record has been preserved in a recordkeeping system along with all appropriate transmission data. If the records in the recordkeeping system are not scheduled, the agency must follow the procedures at 36 CFR part 1228. (3) Records in recordkeeping systems. The disposition of electronic mail records that have been transferred to an appropriate recordkeeping system is governed by the records schedule or schedules that control the records in VerDate Aug<31>2005 that system. If the records in the recordkeeping system are not scheduled, the agency must follow the procedures at 36 CFR part 1228.

The 2006 chinook salmon PSC limit for the pollock fishery is set at 29,000 fish (see § 679.21(e)(1)(i) and (vii)). Of that limit, 7.5 percent is allocated to the groundfish CDQ program as prohibited species quota reserve (see § 679.21(e)(1)(i)).
