In a February 10, 2006, letter (see Exhibit 48–3), ITSNA requested that OSHA terminate the recognition of ENT. OSHA has accepted this request, and ENT is no longer recognized as an NRTL. Section II.D of Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7 provides that the Agency shall publish a Federal Register notice to note the voluntary termination of a recognition, and OSHA is doing so in this notice. OSHA shall not take any further action on this matter. In its February 2006 letter, ITSNA also included a request pertaining to the Entela mark, which now appears along with other marks on OSHA’s Web page of typical registered certification marks used by each NRTL. ITSNA provided documentation showing its exclusive right to use the Entela mark and requested the mark be shown as one used by ITSNA for its NRTL approvals. OSHA will modify its Web page accordingly. Signed at Washington, DC, this 22nd day of January, 2008. Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health. [FR Doc.

The Legal Services Corporation’s (LSC) mission is to promote equal access to justice in our Nation and to provide for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income persons. Pursuant to its statutory authority, LSC designates service areas in U.S. States, territories, possessions and the District of Columbia for which it provides grants to legal aid programs to provide free civil legal services, primarily through ‘‘basic field’’ grants based on poverty populations. In some regions, LSC designates migrant service areas for grants that are designed to specifically serve the legal needs of eligible migrant populations. The funding for migrant service areas is taken out of the funding for the basic field service areas also covering those populations based on the estimated number of eligible migrants as a portion of the total poverty population. For many years LSC has designated a migrant service area in Hawai’i. LSC has been told that the eligible migrant population in Hawai’i is not sufficient in numbers to maintain a separate migrant service area. LSC has researched this matter and determined that, based on the available information, it would be more effective and efficient to serve the legal needs of the eligible migrant population in Hawai’i through the basic field grant rather than providing a separate migrant grant. LSC provides grants through a competitive bidding process, which is regulated by 45 CFR part 1634. In 2007, LSC implemented a competitive grants process for 2008 calendar year funding that included, inter alia, the Hawai’i migrant service area. LSC determines the term of grants after applications have been received. For 2008, LSC awarded a three-month grant for the Hawai’i migrant service area to the Legal Aid Society of Hawai’i (‘‘LASH’’), effective January 1, 2008, through March 31, 2008. Through an earlier competitive grants process, LASH is also the recipient of the Hawai’i basic field grant, awarded for calendar years 2007 through 2009. LSC intends to eliminate the Hawai’i migrant service area beginning April 1, 2008. Funding for the eligible migrant population of Hawai’i, which had been deducted from the Hawai’i basic field grant, will be restored to that grant. LSC expects that the recipient of that grant, the Legal Aid Society of Hawai’i, will continue to provide services addressing the special needs of the eligible migrant population as part of its basic field grant, which will be subject to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00156 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 competition again for funding in calendar year 2010. LSC invites public comment on this decision. Interested parties may submit comments to LSC by March 3, 2008. More information about LSC can be found at LSC’s Web site: http:// www.lsc.gov. Victor M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Legal Services Corporation's (LSC) 
mission is to promote equal access to justice in our Nation and to 
provide for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income persons. 
Pursuant to its statutory authority, LSC designates service areas in 
U.S. States, territories, possessions and the District of Columbia for 
which it provides grants to legal aid programs to provide free civil 
legal services, primarily through ``basic field'' grants based on 
poverty populations. In some regions, LSC designates migrant service 
areas for grants that are designed to specifically serve the legal 
needs of eligible migrant populations. The funding for migrant service 
areas is taken out of the funding for the basic field service areas 
also covering those populations based on the estimated number of 
eligible migrants as a portion of the total poverty population.
    For many years LSC has designated a migrant service area in 
Hawai'i. LSC has been told that the eligible migrant population in 
Hawai'i is not sufficient in numbers to maintain a separate migrant 
service area. LSC has researched this matter and determined that, based 
on the available information, it would be more effective and efficient 
to serve the legal needs of the eligible migrant population in Hawai'i 
through the basic field grant rather than providing a separate migrant 
grant.
    LSC provides grants through a competitive bidding process, which is 
regulated by 45 CFR part 1634. In 2007, LSC implemented a competitive 
grants process for 2008 calendar year funding that included, inter 
alia, the Hawai'i migrant service area. LSC determines the term of 
grants after applications have been received. For 2008, LSC awarded a 
three-month grant for the Hawai'i migrant service area to the Legal Aid 
Society of Hawai'i (``LASH''), effective January 1, 2008, through March 
31, 2008. Through an earlier competitive grants process, LASH is also 
the recipient of the Hawai'i basic field grant, awarded for calendar 
years 2007 through 2009.
    LSC intends to eliminate the Hawai'i migrant service area beginning 
April 1, 2008. Funding for the eligible migrant population of Hawai'i, 
which had been deducted from the Hawai'i basic field grant, will be 
restored to that grant. LSC expects that the recipient of that grant, 
the Legal Aid Society of Hawai'i, will continue to provide services 
addressing the special needs of the eligible migrant population as part 
of its basic field grant, which will be subject to competition again 
for funding in calendar year 2010.
    LSC invites public comment on this decision. Interested parties may 
submit comments to LSC by March 3, 2008. More information about LSC can 
be found at LSC's Web site: http://www.lsc.gov.
