Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Revised Critical Habitat for Astragalus magdalenae
Document Number: 07-3674
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-27
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), propose to revise currently designated critical habitat for Astragalus magdalenae var. peirsonii (Peirson's milk-vetch) pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). In total, approximately 16,108 acres (ac) (6,519 hectares (ha)) in Imperial County, California, fall within the boundaries of the proposed revised critical habitat designation. Lands being proposed as critical habitat are under Federal (15,857 ac (6,418 ha)), private (240 ac (97 ha)), and State (11 ac (4 ha)) ownership. Section 4 of the Act requires us to consider the economic and other relevant impacts of specifying any area as critical habitat. We have conducted an analysis of the economic impacts of designating the aforementioned areas as critical habitat for Astragalus magdalenae var. peirsonii, and are announcing the availability of the draft economic analysis for public review. We hereby solicit data and comments from the public on all aspects of this revised proposal, including data on the economic and other impacts of the designation. We are also announcing that public hearings will be held on both the proposed critical habitat rule and the draft economic analysis.

Agency: Maritime Administration, Department of Transportation
The Maritime Administration announces the text of a revised Voluntary Tanker Agreement, pursuant to Section 708 of the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 App. U.S.C. 2158). This text revises and replaces the Agreement as it was last published in Volume 48 of the Federal Register at page 38715 (August 25, 1983) and is issued in accordance with the provisions of 44 CFR Part 332. Because this revised Agreement contains extensive changes, both former and new participants should submit new applications which are available from the Maritime Administration. The complete, draft text of the VTA is published below. Copies of the Agreement and Application are being sent to U.S. companies that own, operate, or charter tankers and ocean-going tugs and tank barges.

National Estuarine Research Reserve System
Document Number: E7-14487
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-26
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Notice is hereby given that the Estuarine Reserves Division, Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce is announcing a thirty day public comment period on the revised Wells (Maine) National Estuarine Research Reserve Management Plan which will begin on the day this announcement is published. Comments should be sent within the comment period in hard copy or e-mail to Doris Grimm at Doris.Grimm@noaa.gov or NOAA's Estuarine Reserves Division, 1305 East-West Highway, N/ORM5, 10th floor, Silver Spring, MD 20910. The Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve was designated in February 1984 pursuant to Section 315 of the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended, 16 U.S.C. 1461. Pursuant to 15 CFR 921.33(c), a state must revise its management plan every five years. The reserve has been operating under a management plan approved in 1996. The submission of this plan fulfills this requirement and sets a course for successful implementation of the goals and objectives of the reserve. Since the last management plan, the Wells Reserve acquired two key parcels of land, changed its boundary, constructed needed facilities, and has implemented several system-wide programs. It acquired the 27- acre Alheim property and the 2\1/2\-acre Lord parcel, and changed its boundary to include 359 acres of the watershed areas of the Reserve. The Reserve built the Maine Coastal Ecology Center, new interpretive exhibits, the Alheim Commons dormitory, and the Forest Learning Shelter, and equipped and opened the Coastal Resource Library. This new management plan serves as the primary guidance document for the operation of the Wells Reserve's core and system-wide programs in research and monitoring, education and coastal training, and resource management and stewardship. The plan provides guidance on the acquisition of land to be added to the Reserve and on the construction and renovation of buildings and exhibits that support NERR programs. It also guides the Reserve in important related programs, such as volunteerism and outreach to communities to encourage stewardship of coastal resources in southern Maine. The Wells Reserve is a public/private partnership whose administrative oversight is vested in the Reserve Management Authority (RMA). This independent state agency was established in 1990 to support and promote the interests of the Wells Reserve. The RMA has a Board of Directors composed of representatives having a property, management, or program interest in the Wells Reserve. The RMA members represent the Maine Department of conservation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Town of Wells, the Laudholm Trust, the Maine State Planning Office, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Indian Housing Block Grant Program-Extension of Annual Performance Report Due Date
Document Number: E7-14478
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-26
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule extends the due date, by an additional 30 days, for Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) recipients to submit annual performance reports (APRs). Through the IHBG program, HUD provides housing assistance to Indian tribes and tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs).

Because all of the comments offered support for extending this deadline by an additional 30 days, HUD adopts the proposed rule without change.
