SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We intend to develop proposed regulations to implement the changes made to the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA) by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), Public Law 110–315. Section 492 of the HEA, as amended by the HEOA, requires that, before publishing any proposed regulations to implement programs authorized under Title IV of the HEA, the Secretary obtain public involvement in the development of the proposed regulations. After obtaining advice and recommendations from the public, the Secretary uses a negotiated rulemaking process to develop the proposed regulations. In addition, section 201(2) of the HEOA added a provision to section 207(c) of the HEA that requires the Secretary to submit to a negotiated rulemaking process any regulations the Secretary chooses to develop under amended section 207(b)(2) of the HEA, regarding the prohibition on a teacher preparation program from which the State has withdrawn approval or terminated financial support from accepting or VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:57 Sep 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 enrolling any student who receives Title IV aid. We intend to develop proposed regulations by following the negotiated rulemaking procedures in section 492 of the HEA. We anticipate using the negotiated rulemaking procedures in section 492 of the HEA to develop any regulations for the new teacher preparation program provision in section 207(b)(2) of the HEA, although the Secretary is not required to do so. After a complete review of the HEOA and the public comments presented at the public hearings and through written submission, we will publish a subsequent notice (or notices) announcing the specific subject areas for which we intend to establish negotiated rulemaking committees, and a request for nominations for individual negotiators for those committees who represent the interests significantly affected by the proposed regulations. We anticipate that we will announce our intent to establish most of the negotiated rulemaking committees by the end of this year, with negotiations beginning in February 2009. For subject areas for which implementation must occur more quickly, the schedule will be expedited. For general information on the implementation of the HEOA, see http://www.ed.gov/HEOA. Public Hearings We will hold six public hearings for interested parties to discuss the agenda for the negotiated rulemaking sessions. The public hearings will be held on: • September 19, 2008 at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas; • September 29, 2008 at the University of Rhode Island, in Providence, Rhode Island; • October 2, 2008 at Pepperdine University, in Malibu, California; • October 6, 2008 at Johnson C.

ACTION: Proposed rule; request for comments. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with PROPOSALS AGENCY: SUMMARY: This proposed rule would establish Federal permitting and reporting requirements for all commercial bottomfish vessels fishing in the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) around the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). The proposed rule would also close certain EEZ waters around the CNMI to bottomfish fishing by vessels over 40 ft (12.2 m) long. Vessel monitoring system units would be installed on these vessels, and the operators of these vessels would be required to submit Federal sales reports in addition to catch reports. This proposed rule is intended to ensure adequate collection of information about the CNMI commercial bottomfish fishery, provide for sustained community participation, and maintain a consistent supply of locally-caught bottomfish to CNMI markets and seafood consumers. Combined, these measures are intended to prevent the depletion of bottomfish stocks in the CNMI, and to sustain the fisheries that depend on them. DATES: Comments on this proposed rule must be received by October 23, 2008. ADDRESSES: Comments on the amendment, identified by 0648–AV28, may be sent to either of the following addresses: • Electronic Submission: Submit all electronic public comments via the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal www.regulations.gov; or • Mail: William L.

Instructions: All comments received are a part of the public record and will generally be posted to www.regulations.gov without change. All personal identifying information (e.g., name, address, etc.) submitted voluntarily by the commenter may be publicly accessible. Do not submit confidential business information, or otherwise sensitive or protected information. NMFS will accept anonymous comments (if you wish to remain anonymous, enter ‘‘NA’’ in the required name and organization fields). Attachments to electronic comments will be accepted in Microsoft Word or Excel, WordPerfect, or Adobe PDF file formats only. Copies of the Fishery Management Plan for Bottomfish and Seamount Groundfish Fisheries of the Western Pacific Region (Bottomfish FMP) and proposed Amendment 10 are available from the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council), 1164 Bishop St., Suite 1400, Honolulu, HI 96813, tel 808–522–8220, fax 808–522– 8226, or www.wpcouncil.org. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bob Harman, NMFS PIR, 808–944–2271. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Federal Register document is also accessible at the Office of the Federal Register web site www.gpoaccess.gov/fr. The bottomfish fishery around the Northern Mariana Islands is managed under the Bottomfish FMP, which was developed by the Council, and approved and implemented by NMFS. The Council has submitted Bottomfish FMP Amendment 10 to NMFS for review under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). This proposed rule would implement the management provisions recommended in Amendment 10, if the amendment is approved by the Secretary of Commerce. CNMI nearshore areas have been fished for years by bottomfish fishermen who engage in a mix of subsistence, recreational, and small-scale commercial fishing. These fishermen typically operate small vessels (less than 25 ft (7.6 m)), and tend to fish more in the summer months when weather and sea conditions are calmer. Most of these small vessels target shallow-water bottomfish, but some also target deepwater species. The catch from these small vessels is destined for local markets and consumers in the CNMI, and is usually not exported. In addition to small vessels, several larger vessels (over 40 ft (12.2 m) in PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 length) also target deep-water bottomfish at offshore seamounts and banks. In 2006, for example, there were six large vessels targeting bottomfish around the CNMI. Landings from these large vessels are offloaded on Saipan and in other CNMI commercial ports, and are often exported by air to Japan. Thus, the catch from these large vessels does not enter local markets as a food supply for CNMI residents. If these vessels were to target bottomfish in nearshore waters around CNMI, the resulting fishing pressure could be excessive on bottomfish stocks at nearshore banks, potentially threatening both the fish stocks and the fisheries that have historically been dependent on these resources. The CNMI is relatively close to Guam, and it is possible for large bottomfish vessels based in Guam to travel to fishing grounds in the CNMI. NMFS recently implemented a final rule that prohibits large vessels (i.e., greater than 50 ft (15.2 m)) from bottomfish fishing within 50 nm (80.5 km) around Guam (71 FR 64474; November 2, 2006). Without similar closed areas around the CNMI, operators of these large Guambased vessels may choose to fish for bottomfish within U.S. EEZ waters around the CNMI. This could result in excessive fishing pressure on bottomfish stocks at nearshore banks, potentially threatening both the fish stocks and the fisheries that have historically been dependent on these resources. In addition to the possibility of Guambased vessels entering the CNMI bottomfish fishery, the Council is concerned about several other issues regarding bottomfish fishing in the CNMI. First, existing data collection programs in the CNMI are insufficient to monitor catches and determine the impacts of the fishery on the bottomfish stocks being harvested, or to determine the species composition and amount of discarded catch. Second, large bottomfish vessels need to harvest relatively large catches to cover operational costs, and these large catches could deplete nearshore stocks. Stock depletion would threaten the sustainability of the CNMI bottomfish fishery, and if catch rates were significantly reduced, small vessels would not be able to continue operating. Finally, because the catches from large vessels are typically exported, traditional patterns of supply and consumption of bottomfish in the local community would be disrupted. In response to these concerns, the Council developed Amendment 10 with the following objectives: (1) ensure that adequate information is routinely collected for the CNMI offshore E:\FR\FM\08SEP1.SGM 08SEP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We intend to develop proposed regulations to 
implement the changes made to the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA) by 
the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), Public Law 110-
315. Section 492 of the HEA, as amended by the HEOA, requires that,

authorized under Title IV of the HEA, the Secretary obtain public 
involvement in the development of the proposed regulations. After 
obtaining advice and recommendations from the public, the Secretary 
uses a negotiated rulemaking process to develop the proposed

to section 207(c) of the HEA that requires the Secretary to submit to a 
negotiated rulemaking process any regulations the Secretary chooses to 
develop under amended section 207(b)(2) of the HEA, regarding the 
prohibition on a teacher preparation program from which the State has 
withdrawn approval or terminated financial support from accepting or 
enrolling any student who receives Title IV aid.
    We intend to develop proposed regulations by following the 
negotiated rulemaking procedures in section 492 of the HEA. We 
anticipate using the negotiated rulemaking procedures in section 492 of 
the HEA to develop any regulations for the new teacher preparation 
program provision in section 207(b)(2) of the HEA, although the 
Secretary is not required to do so. After a complete review of the HEOA 
and the public comments presented at the public hearings and through 
written submission, we will publish a subsequent notice (or notices) 
announcing the specific subject areas for which we intend to establish 
negotiated rulemaking committees, and a request for nominations for
