Background On May 9, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the availability of NMFS’ DEIS concerning the Makah Indian Tribe’s February 2005 request to resume limited hunting of ENP gray whales in the coastal portion of the Tribe’s usual and accustomed fishing grounds, off the coast of Washington State, for ceremonial and subsistence purposes. The Tribe’s proposed action stems from the 1855 Treaty of Neah Bay, which expressly secures the Makah Tribe’s right to hunt whales. To exercise that right, the Tribe is seeking authorization from NMFS under the MMPA and the Whaling Convention Act. The release of this DEIS is one of several steps NMFS will undertake to evaluate the Tribe’s request. The DEIS, prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, considers various alternatives to the Tribe’s proposed action. To develop the full range of action alternatives—five in total—we considered the principal components associated with a hunt, including: the time when whale hunting would occur; the area where whale hunting would occur; the annual and five-year limits on the number of whales harvested, struck, and struck and lost; cessation of whale hunting if a predetermined number of identified whales (i.e., included in a photographic catalog of whales from the Pacific Coast Feeding Aggregation area) were harvested; and the method of hunting. We developed these alternatives with input from NMFS staff, the applicant, the cooperating agency (i.e., Bureau of Indian Affairs), and oral and written comments from the public. This DEIS addresses a number of resources identified for review during both internal and public scoping, including: water quality, marine habitat and species, ENP gray whales, other wildlife species, economics, environmental justice, social environment, cultural resources, ceremonial and subsistence resources, noise, aesthetics, transportation, public services, public safety, and human health. The DEIS provides an important opportunity for the public to formally comment on the Tribe’s proposal and the various alternatives. These VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:01 May 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 comments, in conjunction with considerations described in the DEIS, will provide key information to assist NMFS with its final decision on the Tribe’s request.

In order to ensure that Title IV, HEA student financial assistance is not awarded to individuals subject to denial of benefits under court orders issued pursuant to section 5301, the Department of Justice and the Department of Education implemented a computer matching program. The 18month computer matching agreement (CMA) was recertified for an additional 12 months on June 18, 2007. The 12month recertification of the CMA will automatically expire on June 18, 2008. The Department of Education must continue to obtain from the Department of Justice identifying information regarding individuals who are the subject of section 5301 denial of benefits court orders.
