Download as PDF 65476 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 216 / Wednesday, November 8, 2006 / Notices being captured, but a small number may die as an unintended result of the activities. Permit 1588 The U.S. Geological Survey, Western Fisheries Research Center (USGS) is requesting a 2-year research permit to take juvenile PS Chinook salmon in the Lake Washington basin and the south and central Puget Sound, Washington. It would also take juvenile PS steelhead. The purpose of the research is to develop and use otolith microstructure analysis to characterize the importance of lake and estuarine rearing habitats for Chinook salmon. The research would benefit PS Chinook by helping managers prioritize habitat protection and restoration. The USGS would capture (using dip nets and beach seines) and intentionally kill naturally produced juvenile PS Chinook in the Lake Washington basin. The USGS will also obtain and intentionally kill juvenile listed hatchery fish from multiple hatchery facilities in the south and central Puget Sound. This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the applications, associated documents, and comments submitted to determine whether the applications meet the requirements of section 10(a) of the ESA and Federal regulations. The final permit decisions will not be made until after the end of the 30-day comment period. NMFS will publish notice of its final action in the Federal Register. Dated: November 2, 2006.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: On August 4, 2006, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC or Commission) published a notice in accordance with provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) (PRA), to announce the agency’s intention to seek approval for a collection of information obtained from persons who have been involved in or have witnessed incidents associated with consumer products. 71 FR 44262. The Commission announces that it has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for an extension of the existing approval of collections of information conducted during follow-up activities for product-related injuries. The Commission received two comments. One commentor requests that the Commission post reports of problems found with products and act on the information obtained. This comment does not weigh against extension of the current authorization. Another commentor, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA), supports the proposed extension and requests the Commission staff to continue to use personal interviews as well as technological data collection to obtain pertinent information regarding product-related incidents. ATLA also requests that the Commission staff investigate a wider variety of productrelated incidents. Given the large number of incidents reported involving consumer products annually, including NEISS data on hospital emergency room treated injuries, over 350,000 records per year, the Commission’s resources and strategic goals guide the number of follow-up investigations that are conducted annually. Although Commission staff does not conduct follow-up investigations in every instance, staff does conduct an estimated 807 face-to-face interviews, excluding investigations conducted by the Office of Compliance and Field E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1
