This document replaces text that was discussed in the preamble but omitted from the final rule with regard to final assembly requirements for rolling stock. DATES: The effective date of this publication is October 22, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard Wong, Office of the Chief Counsel, Federal Transit Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590, (202) 366–4011 or Richard.Wong@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: An inadvertent error occurred in the drafting of the final rule. In the Second Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SNPRM) (71 FR 69412, Nov. 30, 2006), FTA proposed a new Appendix D to part 661 to amend the final assembly requirements for rolling stock. In the preamble to the final rule (72 FR 53688, Sept. 20, 2007), FTA announced that it was withdrawing the proposed language in the SNPRM and would instead continue to implement the terms of the March 18, 1997, Dear Colleague letter, with a few minor additions to reflect industry practices that have taken effect after the 1997 Dear Colleague letter was issued. In the process of drafting the final rule, text that was discussed in the preamble was not included in the final rule. Accordingly, this document will correct that omission by removing the erroneous text in the September 20, 2007, final rule and replacing it with the correct text.

Under 50 CFR 622.43(a), NMFS is required to close the golden tilefish commercial fishery when its quota has been reached, or is projected to be reached, by filing a notification at the Office of the Federal Register. NMFS has determined the commercial quota of 295,000 lb (133,810 kg) for golden tilefish in the South Atlantic will be reached by October 3, 2007. Accordingly, the commercial fishery for South Atlantic golden tilefish is closed effective 12 noon, local time, October 3, 2007, through December 31, 2007, the end of the fishing year. The operator of a vessel with a valid commercial vessel permit for South Atlantic snappergrouper having golden tilefish aboard must have landed and bartered, traded, or sold such golden tilefish prior to 12 noon, local time, October 3, 2007. During the closure, the appropriate bag limits specified in 50 CFR 622.39(d)(1) and the applicable possession limits specified in 50 CFR 622.39(d)(2) apply to all harvest or possession of golden tilefish in or from the South Atlantic EEZ, and the sale or purchase of golden tilefish taken from the EEZ is prohibited. The prohibition on sale or purchase does not apply to sale or purchase of golden tilefish that were harvested, landed ashore, and sold prior to 12 noon, local time, October 3, 2007, and were held in cold storage by a dealer or processor. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fisheries. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, finds that the need to immediately implement this action to close the fishery constitutes good cause to waive the requirements to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth in 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), as such procedures would be unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Such procedures would be unnecessary because the rule itself already has been subject to notice and comment, and all that remains is to notify the public of the closure. NMFS also finds good cause that the implementation of this action cannot be delayed for 30 days. There is a need to implement this measure in a timely fashion to prevent an overrun of the commercial quota of South Atlantic golden tilefish, given the capacity of the fishing fleet to harvest the quota quickly. Any delay in implementing this action would be contrary to the E:\FR\FM\28SER1.SGM 28SER1 55104 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 188 / Friday, September 28, 2007 / Rules and Regulations Magnuson-Stevens Act and the FMP.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the GOA exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. NMFS prohibited directed fishing for pollock in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA under § 679.20(d)(1)(iii) on August 28, 2007 (72 FR 48946, August 27, 2007). NMFS reopened the pollock fishery in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA for 72 hours on September 15, 2007 (72 FR 53169, September 18, 2007). NMFS reopened the pollock fishery in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA for 48 hours on September 21, 2007. NMFS prohibited directed fishing for pollock on September 23, 2007. NMFS has determined that as of September 24, 2007 approximately 1,590 mt remain in the C season allowance of the 2007 pollock directed fishing allowance in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA. Therefore, in accordance with § 679.25(a)(1)(i), (a)(2)(i)(C) and (a)(2)(iii)(D), and to fully utilize the C season allowance of the 2007 TAC of pollock in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA, NMFS is terminating the previous closure and is reopening directed PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 fishing for pollock in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and would delay the opening of pollock in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA. NMFS was unable to publish a notice providing time for public comment because the most recent, relevant data only became available as of September 24, 2007. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment. Without this inseason adjustment, NMFS could not allow the fishery for pollock in Statistical Area 630 in the GOA to be harvested in an expedient manner and in accordance with the regulatory schedule. Under § 679.25(c)(2), interested persons are invited to submit written comments on this action (see ADDRESSES) until October 10, 2007. This action is required by § 679.25 and § 679.20 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: September 25, 2007. James P.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure.

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

SUMMARY: NMFS closes the commercial fishery for golden tilefish in the 
exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the South Atlantic. This closure is 
necessary to protect the golden tilefish resource.

DATES: The closure is effective 12 noon, local time, October 3, 2007, 
through December 31, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The snapper-grouper fishery is managed under 
the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the 
South Atlantic Region (FMP). The FMP was prepared by the South Atlantic 
Fishery Management Council (Council) and is implemented under the 
authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622.
    The commercial fishery for South Atlantic golden tilefish is 
managed under a commercial quota of 295,000 lb (133,810 kg), as 
specified in 50 CFR 622.42(e)(2), for the current fishing year, January 
1 through December 31, 2007.
    Under 50 CFR 622.43(a), NMFS is required to close the golden 
tilefish commercial fishery when its quota has been reached, or is 
projected to be reached, by filing a notification at the Office of the 
Federal Register. NMFS has determined the commercial quota of 295,000 
lb (133,810 kg) for golden tilefish in the South Atlantic will be 
reached by October 3, 2007. Accordingly, the commercial fishery for 
South Atlantic golden tilefish is closed effective 12 noon, local time, 
October 3, 2007, through December 31, 2007, the end of the fishing 
year. The operator of a vessel with a valid commercial vessel permit 
for South Atlantic snapper-grouper having golden tilefish aboard must 
have landed and bartered, traded, or sold such golden tilefish prior to 
12 noon, local time, October 3, 2007.
    During the closure, the appropriate bag limits specified in 50 CFR 
622.39(d)(1) and the applicable possession limits specified in 50 CFR 
622.39(d)(2) apply to all harvest or possession of golden tilefish in 
or from the South Atlantic EEZ, and the sale or purchase of golden 
tilefish taken from the EEZ is prohibited. The prohibition on sale or 
purchase does not apply to sale or purchase of golden tilefish that 
were harvested, landed ashore, and sold prior to 12 noon, local time, 
October 3, 2007, and were held in cold storage by a dealer or 
processor.

Classification

    This action responds to the best available information recently 
obtained from the fisheries. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, 
NOAA, finds that the need to immediately implement this action to close 
the fishery constitutes good cause to waive the requirements to provide 
prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the 
authority set forth in 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), as such procedures would 
be unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Such procedures 
would be unnecessary because the rule itself already has been subject
