F. Executive Order 13175 The Agency has determined that this rule does not have any ‘‘tribal implications’’ as described in Executive Order 13175, entitledConsultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000). Executive Order 13175, requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have tribal implications.’’ This direct final rule will not have substantial direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this rule. G. Executive Order 13045 This action does not require OMB review or any other Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). H. Executive Order 13211 Because this direct final rule is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, this direct final rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, entitled Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES I.

J. Congressional Review Act 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 the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:42 Sep 05, 2006 Jkt 205001 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 theFederal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations governing the Loligo squid fishery are found at 50 CFR part 648. The regulations require specifications for maximum sustainable yield, initial optimum yield, allowable biological catch, domestic annual harvest (DAH), domestic annual processing, joint venture processing, and total allowable levels of foreign fishing for the species managed under the Atlantic Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish Fishery Management Plan. The procedures for setting the annual initial specifications are described in § 648.21. The 2006 specification of DAH for Loligo squid was set at 16,872.4 mt (71 FR 10621, March 2, 2006).

comply with ABAAS as set forth below:
    (1) For construction or alteration of Federally-owned facilities, 
compliance with ABAAS is required if the construction or alteration 
commenced after May 8, 2006. If the construction or alteration of a 
Federally-owned facility commenced on or before May 8, 2006, compliance 
with the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS) is required.
    (2) For Federal lease-construction actions subject to the 
Architectural Barriers Act, where the Government expressly requires new 
construction to meet its needs, compliance with ABAAS is required for 
all such leases awarded on or after June 30, 2006. UFAS compliance is 
required for all such leases awarded before June 30, 2006.

Barriers Act (other than those described in paragraph (a)(2) of this 
section), compliance with ABAAS is required for all such leases awarded 
pursuant to solicitations issued after February 6, 2007. UFAS
