ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: wwhite on PROD1PC65 with RULES SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by catcher vessels less than 60 ft (18.3 meters (m)) length overall (LOA) using jig or hook-and-line gear in the Bogoslof Pacific cod exemption area of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI).

DATES: Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), February 22, 2006, through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Josh Keaton, 907–586–7228. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the BSAI according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. In accordance with § 679.22(a)(7)(i)(C)(1) and (2), the Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), has determined that 113 metric tons of Pacific cod have been caught by catcher vessels less than 60 ft (18.3 m) LOA using jig or hook-and-line gear in the Bogoslof exemption area described at § 679.22(a)(7)(i)(C)(1). Consequently, the Regional Administrator is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by catcher vessels less than 60 ft (18.3 m) LOA using jig or hook-and-line gear in the Bogoslof Pacific cod exemption area. After the effective date of this closure the maximum retainable amounts at PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 9739 § 679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and would delay the closure of Pacific cod by catcher vessels less than 60 ft (18.3 m) LOA using jig or hook-and-line gear in the Bogoslof Pacific cod exemption area. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30–day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment. This action is required by section 679.22 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: February 22, 2006. William D. Chappell, Acting Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries , National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc. 06–1794 Filed 2–22–06; 1:29 pm] BILLING CODE 3510–22–S E:\FR\FM\27FER1.SGM 27FER1

44 CFR Part 65

[Docket No. FEMA-D-7581]


Changes in Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of 
Homeland Security, Mitigation Division.

ACTION: Interim rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This interim rule lists communities where modification of the 
Base (1% annual chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) is appropriate because 
of new scientific or technical data. New flood insurance premium rates 
will be calculated from the modified BFEs for new buildings and their 
contents.

DATES: These modified BFEs are currently in effect on the dates listed 
in the table and revise the Flood Insurance Rate Map(s) (FIRMs) in 
effect prior to this determination for each listed community.
    From the date of the second publication of these changes in a 
newspaper of local circulation, any

[[Page 9738]]

person has ninety (90) days in which to request through the community 
that the Director reconsider the changes. The modified elevations may 
be changed during the 90-day period.

ADDRESSES: The modified BFEs for each community are available for 
inspection at the office of the Chief Executive Officer of each 
community. The respective addresses are listed in the table below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Doug Bellomo, P.E., Hazard 
Identification Section, FEMA, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, 
(202) 646-2903.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The modified BFEs are not listed for each 
community in this interim rule. However, the address of the Chief 
Executive Officer of the community where the modified BFE 
determinations are available for inspection is provided.
    Any request for reconsideration must be based upon knowledge of 
changed conditions, or upon new scientific or technical data.
    The modifications are made pursuant to Section 201 of the Flood 
Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, and are in accordance 
with the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq., 
and with 44 CFR part 65.
    For rating purposes, the currently effective community number is 
shown and must be used for all new policies and renewals.
    The modified BFEs are the basis for the floodplain management 
measures that the community is required to either adopt or to show 
evidence of being already in effect in order to qualify or to remain 
qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program 
(NFIP).
    These modified elevations, together with the floodplain management 
criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. 
They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any 
existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain 
management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter 
requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other 
Federal, State or regional entities.
    The changes in BFEs are in accordance with 44 CFR 65.4.

part 10, Environmental Consideration. No environmental impact 
assessment has been prepared.

eligibility in the NFIP. No regulatory flexibility analysis has been 
prepared.
