ACTION: Notice: Receipt of Application for an Incidental Take Permit; Request for Comments. AGENCY: Background The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through the United States Coast Guard and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), issued a joint final rule (72 FR 3492; January 25, 2007) pursuant to the VerDate Aug<31>2005 Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA), Pub. L. 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064 (November 25, 2002), and the Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (SAFE Port Act), Pub. L. 109–347 (October 13, 2006). This rule requires all credentialed merchant mariners and individuals with unescorted access to secure areas of a regulated facility or vessel to obtain a TWIC. In this final rule, on page 3510, TSA and Coast Guard stated that a phased enrollment approach based upon risk assessment and cost/benefit would be used to implement the program nationwide, and that TSA would publish a notice in the Federal Register indicating when enrollment at a specific location will begin and when it is expected to terminate. This notice provides the start date for TWIC initial enrollment at the Ports of Vicksburg, MS; Muskegon, MI; and Miami, FL. Enrollment will begin in Vicksburg, Muskegon, and Miami, FL on January 31, 2008. The Coast Guard will publish a separate notice in the Federal Register indicating when facilities within the Captain of the Port Zone New Orleans, including those in the Port of Vicksburg; Captain of the Port Zone Lake Michigan, including those in the Port of Muskegon; and Captain of the Port Zone Miami, including those in the Port of Miami must comply with the portions of the final rule requiring TWIC to be used as an access control measure. That notice will be published at least 90 days before compliance is required.

E:\FR\FM\17JAN1.SGM 17JAN1 3262 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 12 / Thursday, January 17, 2008 / Notices Background The Florida scrub-jay (scrub-jay) is found exclusively in peninsular Florida and is restricted to xeric upland communities (predominately in oakdominated scrub with open canopies) of the interior and Atlantic coast sand ridges. Increasing urban and agricultural development has resulted in habitat loss and fragmentation, which have adversely affected the distribution and numbers of scrub-jays. Remaining habitat is largely degraded due to the exclusion of fire, which is needed to maintain xeric uplands in conditions suitable for scrub-jays. The total estimated population is between 7,000 and 11,000 individuals. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Applicant’s Proposal The applicant is requesting take of approximately 5.75 ac of occupied scrub-jay habitat incidental to the project. The 44-ac project is located northeast of the Hancock Road and Lost Lake intersection within Section 34, Township 22 South, Range 26 East, Lake County. The proposed project currently includes commercial buildings, infrastructure and a stormwater management system. The applicant proposes to mitigate for the take of the Florida scrub-jay at a ratio of 2:1 based on Service Mitigation Guidelines. The applicant will contribute a total of $215,050.00 to the USDA Forest Service to be utilized for scrub-jay conservation pursuant to an MOU between the Service and the Forest Service. As minimization for impacts to the species, clearing activities during project construction will occur outside the scrub-jay nesting season (March 1–June 30). We have determined that the applicant’s proposal, including the proposed mitigation and minimization measures, would have minor or negligible effects on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, the ITP is a ‘‘loweffect’’ project and qualifies for categorical exclusions under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as provided by the Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2 Appendix 1 and 516 DM 6 Appendix 1). This preliminary information may be revised based on our review of public comments that we receive in response to this notice. A low-effect HCP is one involving (1) minor or negligible effects on federally listed or candidate species and their habitats, and (2) minor or negligible effects on other environmental values or resources. We will evaluate the HCP and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the application VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:07 Jan 16, 2008 Jkt 214001 meets the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we determine that the application meets those requirements, we will issue the ITP for incidental take of the scrub-jay. We will also evaluate whether issuance of the section 10(a)(1)(B) ITP complies with section 7 of the Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. We will use the results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, in the final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the ITP.

Background

    The Florida scrub-jay (scrub-jay) is found exclusively in 
peninsular Florida and is restricted to xeric upland communities 
(predominately in oak-dominated scrub with open canopies) of the 
interior and Atlantic coast sand ridges. Increasing urban and 
agricultural development has resulted in habitat loss and 
fragmentation, which have adversely affected the distribution and 
numbers of scrub-jays. Remaining habitat is largely degraded due to the 
exclusion of fire, which is needed to maintain xeric uplands in 
conditions suitable for scrub-jays. The total estimated population is 
between 7,000 and 11,000 individuals.

Applicant's Proposal

    The applicant is requesting take of approximately 5.75 ac of 
occupied scrub-jay habitat incidental to the project. The 44-ac project 
is located northeast of the Hancock Road and Lost Lake intersection 
within Section 34, Township 22 South, Range 26 East, Lake County. The 
proposed project currently includes commercial buildings, 
infrastructure and a stormwater management system. The applicant 
proposes to mitigate for the take of the Florida scrub-jay at a ratio 
of 2:1 based on Service Mitigation Guidelines. The applicant will 
contribute a total of $215,050.00 to the USDA Forest Service to be 
utilized for scrub-jay conservation pursuant to an MOU between the 
Service and the Forest Service. As minimization for impacts to the 
species, clearing activities during project construction will occur 
outside the scrub-jay nesting season (March 1-June 30).
    We have determined that the applicant's proposal, including the 
proposed mitigation and minimization measures, would have minor or 
negligible effects on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, the 
ITP is a ``low-effect'' project and qualifies for categorical 
exclusions under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as 
provided by the Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2 Appendix 1 
and 516 DM 6 Appendix 1). This preliminary information may be revised 
based on our review of public comments that we receive in response to 
this notice. A low-effect HCP is one involving (1) minor or negligible 
effects on federally listed or candidate species and their habitats, 
and (2) minor or negligible effects on other environmental values or 
resources.
    We will evaluate the HCP and comments submitted thereon to 
determine whether the application meets the requirements of section 
10(a) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we determine that the 
application meets those requirements, we will issue the ITP for 
incidental take of the scrub-jay. We will also evaluate whether 
issuance of the section 10(a)(1)(B) ITP complies with section 7 of the 
Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. We will use 
the results of this consultation, in combination with the above 
findings, in the final analysis to determine whether or not to issue 
the ITP.

    Authority: We provide this notice under section 10 of the Act 
and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6).

    Dated: January 10, 2008.
