Download as PDF rmajette on PROD1PC67 with RULES1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 164 / Thursday, August 24, 2006 / Rules and Regulations responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely approves a state rule implementing a Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. In reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the State to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a SIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a SIP submission, to use VCS in place of a SIP submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Clean Air Act. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by October 23, 2006. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:14 Aug 23, 2006 Jkt 208001 such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Pacific Cod 
by Non-American Fisheries Act Crab Vessels Catching Pacific Cod for 
Processing by the Inshore Component in the Central and Western 
Regulatory Areas of the Gulf of Alaska

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure.

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

SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by non-
American Fisheries Act (AFA) crab vessels catching Pacific cod for 
processing by the inshore component in the Central and Western 
Regulatory Areas of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This action is necessary 
to prevent exceeding the 2006 Pacific cod sideboard limits apportioned 
to non-AFA crab vessels catching Pacific cod for processing by the 
inshore component of the Central and Western Regulatory Areas of the 
GOA.

DATES: Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), August 21, 2006, 
until 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Hogan, 907-586-7228.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the 
GOA exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan 
for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska (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.
    The 2006 Pacific cod sideboard limits apportioned to non-AFA crab 
vessels catching Pacific cod for processing by the inshore component is 
587 metric tons (mt) for the Central Regulatory Area of the GOA and 981 
mt for the Western Regulatory Area of the GOA, as established by the 
2006 and 2007 harvest specifications for groundfish of the GOA (71 FR 
10888, March 3, 2006).
    In accordance with Sec.  680.22(e)(2)(i), the Administrator, Alaska 
Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), has determined that the 2006 
harvest limit of Pacific cod apportioned to non-AFA crab vessels 
catching Pacific cod for processing by the inshore component of the 
Central and Western Regulatory Areas of the GOA will soon be reached. 
Therefore, the Regional Administrator is establishing a sideboard 
directed fishing allowance for Pacific cod as 562 mt in the Central 
Regulatory Area, and 956 mt in the Western Regulatory Area. The 
remaining 25 mt in the Central Regulatory Area and 25 mt in the Western 
Regulatory Area will be set aside as bycatch to support other 
anticipated groundfish fisheries. In accordance with Sec.  
680.22(e)(3), the Regional Administrator finds that this sideboard 
directed fishing allowance has been reached. Consequently, NMFS is 
prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific cod by non-AFA crab vessels 
catching Pacific cod for processing by the inshore component in the 
Central and Western Regulatory Areas of the GOA.
    After the effective date of this closure the maximum retainable 
amounts at Sec.  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 sideboard directed fishing closure of Pacific cod 
apportioned to non-AFA crab vessels catching Pacific cod for processing 
by the inshore component of the Central and Western Regulatory Areas of 
the GOA. NMFS was unable to publish a notice providing time for public 
comment because the most recent, relevant data only became available as 
of August 17, 2006.
    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 Sec.  680.22 and is exempt from review 
under Executive Order 12866.
