This knowledge is critical to the grant project. • NASADAD has a Data Subcommittee that is essential to the required grant activities. In addition, NASADAD is uniquely qualified to conduct the required activities because of its relationship with the SSAs and its history of collaboration with the Federal government and other organizations that represent issues of importance to State government.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This Notice announces that the designation of Somalia for temporary protected status (TPS) has been extended for 18 months through September 17, 2009, from its current expiration date of March 17, 2008. This Notice also sets forth procedures necessary for nationals of Somalia (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Somalia) with TPS to re-register and to apply for an extension of their employment authorization documents (EADs) for the additional 18-month period. Reregistration is limited to persons who have previously registered for TPS under the designation of Somalia and whose applications have been granted or remain pending. Certain nationals of Somalia (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Somalia) who have not previously applied for TPS may be eligible to apply under the late initial registration provisions. Given the timeframes involved with processing TPS re-registration applications, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recognizes the possibility that re-registrants may not receive a new EAD until after their current EAD expires on March 17, 2008. Accordingly, this Notice automatically extends the validity of EADs issued under the TPS designation of Somalia for 6 months, through September 17, 2008 and explains how TPS beneficiaries and their employers may PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13245 determine which EADs are automatically extended. DHS will issue new EADs with the September 17, 2009 expiration date to eligible TPS beneficiaries who timely re-register and apply for an EAD. DATES: The extension of the TPS designation of Somalia is effective March 18, 2008 and will remain in effect through September 17, 2009. The 60-day re-registration period begins March 12, 2008 and will remain in effect until May 12, 2008. To facilitate processing of applications, applicants are strongly encouraged to file as soon as possible after the start of the 60-day re-registration period beginning on March 12, 2008.

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
