SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory History We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under both 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (b)(B), the Coast Guard finds this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve agency organization and practices, and good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM for all revisions in the rule because they are all non-substantive changes. This rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments. These changes will have no substantive effect on the public; therefore, it is unnecessary to publish an NPRM. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard also finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. ebenthall on PROD1PC69 with RULES Background and Purpose Each year Title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations is updated on October 1. This rule, which becomes effective September 21, 2007, makes technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 46. This rule does not create any substantive requirements. Discussion of Rule This rule updates addresses for the Marine Safety Center in 26 sections, for the International Cargo Gear Bureau in five sections, and for the National Cargo Bureau in two sections. Internal Coast Guard office designators are updated in four sections, and typos are corrected in §§ 10.205, 54.15, 134.140, and 171.080. Additionally, § 10.805(e) and the formulas in § 54.15, are revised to improve clarity, but not substantively changed, and obsolete references in §§ 25.26–1 and 170.160 are updated. Additional amendments to parts 10, 14, 15, 125, and 151 are: 46 CFR 10.205(g)(3). This provision, which requires applicants for certain licenses to present a certificate showing completion of an approved firefighting course, is reworded to improve clarity. The new provision does not exempt apprentice mates (steersmen) of towing vessels by name from this requirement. By limiting the requirement to certain personnel in ocean service, however, apprentice mates (steersmen) of towing vessels continue to be effectively VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:32 Sep 20, 2007 Jkt 211001 exempt because they serve only on inland waters. 46 CFR 10.219. A list of Regional Examination Centers (RECs) where Officers in Charge, Marine Inspection (OCMIs) are located is no longer included in § 10.105, so the reference in this section has been revised accordingly to ‘‘any Regional Examination Center.’’ Additionally, replacing ‘‘Commandant’’ with ‘‘National Maritime Center’’ (NMC) as a source of a license or certificate brings the section into alignment with the previous delegation of certain mariner credentialing functions from the Commandant to the Commanding Officer of the NMC. 46 CFR 14.311. The words ‘‘via modem’’ are removed from paragraph (a) because they are unnecessary, outdated, and may be confusing to the public. 46 CFR 15.850. A citation to the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea is added for the public’s convenience. 46 CFR 125.160. The existing section erroneously includes the definition of ‘‘Coastwise’’ as part of the definition of ‘‘Coast Guard District Commander or District Commander.’’ This error is corrected by separating the two definitions. 46 CFR 151.04. The requirement that every tank barge subject to regulation under Subchapter O be inspected biennially is changed to every five years. This amendment conforms the section to the provisions of 46 U.S.C. 3307 and a final rule published in 2000, which revised CFR Title 46 to establish a five year requirement, but inadvertently omitted the change to § 151 (65 FR 6494, February 9, 2000). Regulatory Evaluation This rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. As this rule involves internal agency practices and procedures and nonsubstantive changes, it will not impose any costs on the public. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. This rule does not require a general NPRM and, therefore, is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Although this rule is exempt, we have reviewed it for potential economic impact on small entities. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to E:\FR\FM\21SER1.SGM 21SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 183 / Friday, September 21, 2007 / Rules and Regulations health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, 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. Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. ebenthall on PROD1PC69 with RULES Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.lD and Department of Homeland Security Management Directive M16475.1D, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that there are no factors VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:32 Sep 20, 2007 Jkt 211001 53963 in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraphs (34)(a) and (b), of the Instruction from further environmental documentation because this rule involves editorial, procedural, and internal agency functions. A final ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ and a final ‘‘Categorical Exclusion Determination’’ are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. 46 CFR Part 71 Marine safety, Passenger vessels, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: SUMMARY: NMFS announces the closure of the scup commercial coastwide fishery from Maine through North Carolina for the Summer Period. Regulations governing the scup fishery require publication of this notification to advise the coastal states from Maine through North Carolina that this quota has been harvested and to advise Federal vessel permit holders and Federal dealer permit holders that no commercial quota is available for landing scup in these states. Federally permitted commercial vessels may not land scup in these states for the remainder of the 2007 Summer quota period (through October 31, 2007). DATES: Effective 0001 hours, September 21, 2007, through October 31, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Emily Bryant, Fishery Management Specialist, (978) 281–9244. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations governing the scup fishery are found at 50 CFR part 648. The regulations at 50 CFR 648.121 require the Regional Administrator to monitor the commercial scup quota for each quota period and, based upon dealer reports, state data, and other available information, to determine when the commercial quota for a period has been harvested. NMFS is required to publish a notification in the Federal Register PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 53969 advising and notifying commercial vessels and dealer permit holders that, effective upon a specific date, the scup commercial quota has been harvested and no commercial quota is available for landing scup for the remainder of the Summer Period. Based upon recent projections, the Regional Administrator anticipates that the Federal commercial quota of 3,464,914 lb (1,572 mt) for the 2007 Summer Period will be fully harvested by or before October 31, 2007. To maintain the integrity of the 2008 Summer Period quota by avoiding or minimizing quota overages, the commercial scup fishery will close for the remainder of the Summer Period (through October 31, 2007) in Federal waters. In 50 CFR 648.4(b) provides that Federal scup moratorium permit holders agree as a condition of the permit not to land scup in any state after NMFS has published a notification in the Federal Register stating that the commercial quota for the period has been harvested and that no commercial quota for scup is available. Therefore, effective 0001 hours, September 21, 2007, further landings of scup by vessels holding Federal scup moratorium permits are prohibited through October 31, 2007. Effective 0001 hours, September 21, 2007, federally permitted dealers are also advised that they may not purchase scup from federally permitted vessels that land in coastal states from Maine through North Carolina for the remainder of the Summer Period (through October 31, 2007). The Winter II Period for commercial scup harvest will open on November 1, 2007. Classification This action is required by 50 CFR part 648 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory History

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this 
regulation. Under both 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (b)(B), the Coast Guard 
finds this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking 
requirements because these changes involve agency organization and 
practices, and good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM for all 
revisions in the rule because they are all non-substantive changes. 
This rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, 
and conforming amendments. These changes will have no substantive 
effect on the public; therefore, it is unnecessary to publish an NPRM. 
Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard also finds that, for the same 
reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 
days after publication in the Federal Register.

Background and Purpose

    Each year Title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations is updated on 
October 1. This rule, which becomes effective September 21, 2007, makes 
technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 46. This rule does 
not create any substantive requirements.

Discussion of Rule

    This rule updates addresses for the Marine Safety Center in 26 
sections, for the International Cargo Gear Bureau in five sections, and 
for the National Cargo Bureau in two sections. Internal Coast Guard 
office designators are updated in four sections, and typos are 
corrected in Sec. Sec.  10.205, 54.15, 134.140, and 171.080. 
Additionally, Sec.  10.805(e) and the formulas in Sec.  54.15, are 
revised to improve clarity, but not substantively changed, and obsolete 
references in Sec. Sec.  25.26-1 and 170.160 are updated.
    Additional amendments to parts 10, 14, 15, 125, and 151 are:
    46 CFR 10.205(g)(3). This provision, which requires applicants for 
certain licenses to present a certificate showing completion of an 
approved firefighting course, is reworded to improve clarity. The new 
provision does not exempt apprentice mates (steersmen) of towing 
vessels by name from this requirement. By limiting the requirement to 
certain personnel in ocean service, however, apprentice mates 
(steersmen) of towing vessels continue to be effectively exempt because 
they serve only on inland waters.
    46 CFR 10.219. A list of Regional Examination Centers (RECs) where 
Officers in Charge, Marine Inspection (OCMIs) are located is no longer 
included in Sec.  10.105, so the reference in this section has been 
revised accordingly to ``any Regional Examination Center.'' 
Additionally, replacing ``Commandant'' with ``National Maritime 
Center'' (NMC) as a source of a license or certificate brings the 
section into alignment with the previous delegation of certain mariner 
credentialing functions from the Commandant to the Commanding Officer 
of the NMC.
    46 CFR 14.311. The words ``via modem'' are removed from paragraph 
(a) because they are unnecessary, outdated, and may be confusing to the 
public.
    46 CFR 15.850. A citation to the International Regulations for 
Preventing Collisions at Sea is added for the public's convenience.
    46 CFR 125.160. The existing section erroneously includes the 
definition of ``Coastwise'' as part of the definition of ``Coast Guard 
District Commander or District Commander.'' This error is corrected by 
separating the two definitions.
    46 CFR 151.04. The requirement that every tank barge subject to 
regulation under Subchapter O be inspected biennially is changed to 
every five years. This amendment conforms the section to the provisions 
of 46 U.S.C. 3307 and a final rule published in 2000, which revised CFR 
Title 46 to establish a five year requirement, but inadvertently 
omitted the change to Sec.  151 (65 FR 6494, February 9, 2000).

Regulatory Evaluation

    This rule is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under section 
3(f) of Executive Order 12866 and does not require an assessment of 
potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The 
Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. 
We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full 
Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. As this rule involves internal 
agency practices and procedures and non-substantive changes, it will 
not impose any costs on the public.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, 
and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. 
This rule does not require a general NPRM and, therefore, is exempt 
from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Although this 
rule is exempt, we have reviewed it for potential economic impact on 
small entities.

Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 or more in any 
one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we 
do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to

[[Page 53963]]

health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, 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.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.

Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus 
standards bodies.
    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.lD 
and Department of Homeland Security Management Directive M16475.1D, 
which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and 
have concluded that there are no factors in this case that would limit 
the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the 
Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under 
figure 2-1, paragraphs (34)(a) and (b), of the Instruction from further 
environmental documentation because this rule involves editorial, 
procedural, and internal agency functions. A final ``Environmental 
Analysis Check List'' and a final ``Categorical Exclusion 
Determination'' are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
