ACTION: Final rule. pwalker on PRODPC60 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: NMFS issues this final rule to implement Amendment 9 to the Fishery Management Plan for Bottomfish and Seamount Groundfish Fisheries of the Western Pacific Region (FMP) that prohibits large vessels, i.e., those 50 ft VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:15 Nov 01, 2006 Jkt 211001 (15.2 m) or longer, from fishing for bottomfish in Federal waters within 50 nm (92.6 km) around Guam, and establishes Federal permitting and reporting requirements for these large bottomfish fishing vessels. This final rule is intended to maintain viable participation and bottomfish catch rates by small vessels in the fishery, to maintain traditional patterns of the bottomfish supply to local Guam markets, to provide for the collection of adequate fishery information for effective management, and to reduce the risk of local depletion of deepwater bottomfish stocks near Guam. DATES: This final rule is effective December 4, 2006, except for the revisions to § 665.14 and § 665.61, which require approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Electronic Access This Federal Register document is also accessible via the Internet at the web site of the Office of the Federal Register: www.gpoaccess.gov/fr/ index.html. Background The bottomfish fishery that operates in Federal waters around Guam is managed under the Fishery Management Plan for the Bottomfish and Seamount Groundfish Fisheries of the Western Pacific Region (FMP). Aside from restrictions on the use of certain destructive fishing methods, such as bottom trawling, bottom set nets, poisons, and explosives, that apply to the bottomfish fisheries throughout the western Pacific, the fishery is mostly PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 unregulated at this time. Potential developments in the fishery, however, led the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council to recommend the management measures in this final rule. The Guam-based bottomfish fishery is a mix of subsistence, recreational, and limited commercial fishing from primarily small boats on nearshore slopes. There is a potential component of the fishery, however, in which fishermen in relatively large vessels (i.e., greater than 50 ft or 15.2 m in length) target deep-slope fish species, particularly onaga (longtail red snapper, or flame snapper, Etelis coruscans). This fishery is currently inactive, but several vessels have operated in the past. The fish were caught on offshore banks in Federal waters, landed at Guam′s commercial port and, rather than entering the local market, were exported by air to foreign markets. The activity occurred on some or all of Guam′s southern banks, including Galvez, 11– Mile, Santa Rosa, White Tuna, and Baby Banks. Most of the vessels fishing on these southern banks targeted the shallow-water bottomfish complex, but some targeted the deep-water complex. The banks to the north of Guam, including Rota Bank, and far to the west of Guam, including Bank A, appear not to have been fished. The potential for renewed large-vessel bottomfish fishing activity prompted concerns about fishery information being inadequate for effective management, about the potential for small-vessel catch rates declining to non-viable levels, about threats to sustained participation by smaller vessels in the fishery, about disruptions to traditional patterns of supply of bottomfish products to the local market, and about localized depletion of bottomfish stocks. Based on the current FMP reporting and management requirements, existing data collection programs can provide adequate information about Guam′s inshore bottomfish fisheries that are conducted by smaller vessels. Thus, this final rule does not establish additional data collection requirements on smaller vessels. There is no evidence, to date, that the bottomfish stocks around Guam are currently subject to overfishing or are being overfished. Deepwater bottomfish species, however, have life history characteristics (slow growth, relatively low productivity and limited migration ranges) that make local fish stocks sensitive to fishing pressure, and severe local depletion can result in reduced productivity of the stock as a whole. Closing areas to potential large vessel bottomfish fishing reduces the risk of E:\FR\FM\02NOR1.SGM 02NOR1

[Docket No. NHTSA-2006-15712]


Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Glazing Materials; 
Correction

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 
Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Correcting amendment.

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

SUMMARY: In July 2003, the agency published a final rule updating our 
Federal motor vehicle safety standard on glazing materials. As part of 
that rulemaking, boundaries were established for shade bands on vehicle 
windshields in order to limit their potential encroachment on the 
driver's field of view. As part of the new shade band requirements, the 
Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Recommended Practice J100 (rev. 
June 1995), ``Class `A' Vehicle Glazing Shade Bands,'' was incorporated 
by reference into the standard. However, in a July 2005 final rule 
responding to petitions for reconsideration of that earlier rulemaking, 
the standard's provisions related to shade bands requirements were 
amended, and as a result, a later but substantively identical version 
of SAE J100 (i.e., the November 1999 revision) was inadvertently 
included in the standard. The July 2005 final rule should have 
referenced SAE J100 (rev. June 1995), the document properly 
incorporated by reference into the safety standard. This document 
corrects this inconsistency resulting from administrative error.

DATES: Effective date: This correcting amendment is effective December 
4, 2006.

Washington, DC 20590. Telephone: (202) 366-2992. Fax: (202) 366-3820.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 25, 2003, the agency published a 
final rule updating Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 
205, Glazing Materials (68 FR 43964). As part of that rulemaking, 
boundaries were established for shade bands on vehicle windshields in 
order to limit their potential encroachment on the driver's field of 
view. Prior to that rulemaking, the size of the shade band was not 
explicitly defined under the standard. As part of the new shade band 
requirements (see S3.2(c)), the final rule incorporated by reference 
SAE Recommended Practice J100 (rev. June 1995), ``Class `A' Vehicle 
Glazing Shade Bands'' into the standard (see 68 FR 43964, 43972 (July 
25, 2003)).
    However, in a July 12, 2005 final rule responding to petitions for 
reconsideration of that earlier rulemaking, the standard's provisions 
related to shade bands requirements were amended, and as a result, a 
later version of SAE J100 (i.e., the November 1999 revision) was 
inadvertently included in the standard under paragraph S5.3.1 (see 70 
FR 39959, 39965). The latest version of SAE J100 (the November 1999 
revision) is not substantively different from the prior June 1995 
version of that standard; it merely reaffirmed that Recommended 
Practice as part of SAE's cyclical review process. Furthermore, the 
final rule responding to petitions for reconsideration does not reflect 
any affirmative intention on the part of the agency to adopt the later 
version of SAE J100. Thus, the July 2005 final rule's amendments to 
Standard No. 205 should have referenced SAE J100 (rev. June 1995), the 
document properly incorporated by reference into the safety standard. 
This document corrects this inconsistency resulting from administrative 
error.

requirements or burdens on manufacturers. Therefore, NHTSA finds for 
good cause that any notice and opportunity for comment on these 
correcting amendments are not necessary.
