Under both 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (b)(B), the Coast Guard finds this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve agency organization and practices, and good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM for all revisions in the rule because they are all non-substantive changes. This rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments. These changes will have no substantive effect on the public; therefore, it is unnecessary to publish an NPRM. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. II. Background and Purpose Each year the printed edition of Title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations is updated on October 1. This rule, which becomes effective September 29, 2008, makes technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 46. This rule does not create any substantive requirements. III. Discussion of Rule This rule updates the address and contact information for the National Maritime Center (NMC) in 10 sections: the Marine Index Bureau in 1 section; the National Cargo Bureau in 1 section; and the International Cargo Bureau in 8 sections. We updated internal Coast Guard office designators in nine sections, and typographical errors were corrected in §§ 10.219, 28.50, 28.275(a)(2), 28.390(c), and 176.816. Further, certain sections of Title 46 previously included a list of Regional Examination locations; however, as a result of other rulemakings, these sections currently state that the list of Regional Examination locations is available through the Coast Guard Web site at http://www.uscg.mil. We updated cross-references to these sections in §§ 12.02–23(e), 12.02–27(a)(2), 13.107(f), 10.105 and 13.109(c) to ensure the public may easily locate the list of Regional Examination locations. Additional amendments to parts 10, 14, 15, 28, 71, 91, 401, and 402 are: 46 CFR 10.464. We amended § 10.464(f)(3) for clarity and to make it consistent with § 10.464(f)(2). 46 CFR Part 14. We updated the address for the NMC throughout Title 46 PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 56505 to reflect their move to West Virginia. In addition to updating the address, we removed the outdated facsimile number in § 14.103(b), and replaced it with NMC’s public contact e-mail address. The facsimile number listed is no longer valid, and the NMC is now accepting communications via electronic mail. We also added paragraph (c) to § 14.103 to provide the NMC’s World Wide Web address. 46 CFR 15.610. We removed § 15.610(c) because it expired on May 21, 2006. We re-designated § 15.610(d) as § 15.610(c) due to the removal of paragraph (c). 46 CFR 28.575. We amended 46 CFR 28.575 to correct two typographical errors. The first typographical error appears in the formula in paragraph (b). Specifically, the figure two in the formula should be a superscripted figure two. The correct formula, with the superscripted figure, was added to the CFR in 1991 (56 FR 40413). The typographical error appeared in the CFR in 1997. The Coast Guard amended § 28.575 twice between 1991 and 1997 (56 FR 47679 and 60 FR 50461); however neither amendment affected the superscripted figure, and as such the cause for the error is unknown. Further, we have contacted members of the public that may have been impacted by the typographical error; and they have indicated that, in completing the calculation, they have relied on the original formula published in 1991 rather than the formula published since 1997. This amendment will merely restore the formula to that which was published in 1991. The second typographical error appears in Figure 28.575, which is the graphical representation for § 28.575. Figure 28.575 shows a heel angle of 40 degrees while the text of the rule in paragraph (e)(3) states a heel angle of 50 degrees. Thus, we corrected Figure 28.575 to accurately reflect the rule text. 46 CFR Parts 71 and 91. 73 FR 35959 amended § 31.10–16 by adding the National Cargo Bureau, Inc., as a recognized inspection organization. Previously this section only listed the International Cargo Gear Bureau, Inc., as a recognized inspection organization. Sections 71.65–1 and 91.55–1 referenced § 31.10–16 to identify the International Cargo Gear Bureau, Inc., as the cargo gear organization authorized to approve cargo gear plans and specifications. The International Cargo Gear Bureau, Inc., remains the only authorized organization, other than recognized classification societies authorized to perform the approval of plans as described in §§ 71.65–1 and 91.55–1. We amended §§ 71.65–1 and E:\FR\FM\29SER1.SGM 29SER1 56506 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 189 / Monday, September 29, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 91.55–1 to eliminate confusion, and ensure that mariners continue to be directed to appropriate cargo gear plans and specifications approval organizations. 46 CFR Part 401. In §§ 401.200 and 401.211, we removed a provision requiring pilots to submit fingerprint charts with registration applications. We removed these provisions because they duplicate the same requirement found in § 401.210(a)(1). In § 401.450, we amended a reference to a pilot change point located in Canada. Previously, the Canadians identified Lock No. 7, Welland Canal, as an appropriate pilot change point. The Canadians have relocated the pilot change point and it is now located at Port Colburne. Both Welland Canal and Port Colburn are under Canadian jurisdiction—rather than U.S. jurisdiction—and as such this amendment imposes no, U.S. based, substantive burden on the regulated public. This amendment merely conveys Canadian operating procedures to mariners that may traverse Canadian waters. Pilots traversing Canadian waters have been complying with this change for many years. Lastly, we amended § 401.720 to reflect the recodification of 46 U.S.C. 216b(e). Public Law 109–304 (An Act to complete the codification of title 46, United States Code, ‘‘Shipping’’, as positive law) recodified 46 U.S.C. 216b(e) as 46 U.S.C. 9304. 46 Part 402. We revised the authorities section by removing a reference to a Department of Transportation regulation that no longer applies to the Coast Guard. We 2104(a) amended § 402.220 by removing a reference to a memorandum of agreement between Canada and the United States, dated 1961, regarding Great Lakes pilotage, and replaced it with a more current version of that agreement dated 1977. There were no substantive changes between the two agreements impacting the public. Lastly, we revised § 402.320 to reflect the most current ‘‘working rules’’ on file with the Coast Guard. These working rules are compiled by voluntary U.S. registered pilot associations authorized to establish pilotage pools. This amendment provides the public with information regarding the current working rules compiled by those organizations. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES IV. Regulatory Analyses A. Executive Order 12866 This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:29 Sep 26, 2008 Jkt 214001 require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Analysis is unnecessary. As this rule involves internal agency practices and procedures and nonsubstantive changes, it will not impose any costs on the public. B. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. This rule does not require a general notice of proposed rulemaking and, therefore, is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. However, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. C. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). D. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 F. Taking of Private Property This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. G. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. H. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. I. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. J. Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at OMB has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. K. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are E:\FR\FM\29SER1.SGM 29SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 189 / Monday, September 29, 2008 / Rules and Regulations technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. L. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 5100.1 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that under the Instruction there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraphs (34)(a) and (b), of the Instruction from further environmental documentation because this rule involves editorial, procedural, and internal agency functions. A final ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ and a final ‘‘Categorical Exclusion Determination’’ are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 56511 SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific ocean perch for vessels participating in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) trawl limited access fishery in the Western Aleutian District of the BSAI. This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2008 Pacific ocean perch total allowable catch (TAC) specified for vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery in the Western Aleutian District of the BSAI. DATES: Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), September 24, 2008, through December 31, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Hogan, 907–586–7228. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the BSAI exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. The 2008 Pacific ocean perch TAC allocated as a directed fishing allowance to vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery in the Western Aleutian District of the BSAI is 136 metric tons (mt) as established by the 2007 and 2008 final harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (72 FR 9451, March 2, 2007) and revision (72 FR 71802, December 19, 2007). See § 679.20(a)(10)(i), § 679.20(a)(10)(iii), and § 679.91(c)(1) and (2). In accordance with § 679.20(d)(1)(iii), the Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), has determined that the 2008 Pacific ocean perch TAC allocated to vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery in the Western Aleutian District of the BSAI will soon be reached. Consequently, NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific ocean perch by vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery in the Western Aleutian District of the BSAI. After the effective date of this closure the maximum retainable amounts at § 679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, E:\FR\FM\29SER1.SGM 29SER1

I. Regulatory History

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this 
regulation. Under both 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (b)(B), the Coast Guard 
finds this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking 
requirements because these changes involve agency organization and 
practices, and good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM for all 
revisions in the rule because they are all non-substantive changes. 
This rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, 
and conforming amendments. These changes will have no substantive 
effect on the public; therefore, it is unnecessary to publish an NPRM. 
Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same 
reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 
days after publication in the Federal Register.

II. Background and Purpose

    Each year the printed edition of Title 46 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations is updated on October 1. This rule, which becomes effective 
September 29, 2008, makes technical and editorial corrections 
throughout Title 46. This rule does not create any substantive 
requirements.

III. Discussion of Rule

    This rule updates the address and contact information for the 
National Maritime Center (NMC) in 10 sections: the Marine Index Bureau 
in 1 section; the National Cargo Bureau in 1 section; and the 
International Cargo Bureau in 8 sections. We updated internal Coast 
Guard office designators in nine sections, and typographical errors 
were corrected in Sec. Sec.  10.219, 28.50, 28.275(a)(2), 28.390(c), 
and 176.816. Further, certain sections of Title 46 previously included 
a list of Regional Examination locations; however, as a result of other 
rulemakings, these sections currently state that the list of Regional 
Examination locations is available through the Coast Guard Web site at 
http://www.uscg.mil. We updated cross-references to these sections in 
Sec. Sec.  12.02-23(e), 12.02-27(a)(2), 13.107(f), 10.105 and 13.109(c) 
to ensure the public may easily locate the list of Regional Examination 
locations.
    Additional amendments to parts 10, 14, 15, 28, 71, 91, 401, and 402 
are:
    46 CFR 10.464. We amended Sec.  10.464(f)(3) for clarity and to 
make it consistent with Sec.  10.464(f)(2).
    46 CFR Part 14. We updated the address for the NMC throughout Title 
46 to reflect their move to West Virginia. In addition to updating the 
address, we removed the outdated facsimile number in Sec.  14.103(b), 
and replaced it with NMC's public contact e-mail address. The facsimile 
number listed is no longer valid, and the NMC is now accepting 
communications via electronic mail. We also added paragraph (c) to 
Sec.  14.103 to provide the NMC's World Wide Web address.
    46 CFR 15.610. We removed Sec.  15.610(c) because it expired on May 
21, 2006. We re-designated Sec.  15.610(d) as Sec.  15.610(c) due to 
the removal of paragraph (c).
    46 CFR 28.575. We amended 46 CFR 28.575 to correct two 
typographical errors. The first typographical error appears in the 
formula in paragraph (b). Specifically, the figure two in the formula 
should be a superscripted figure two. The correct formula, with the 
superscripted figure, was added to the CFR in 1991 (56 FR 40413). The 
typographical error appeared in the CFR in 1997. The Coast Guard 
amended Sec.  28.575 twice between 1991 and 1997 (56 FR 47679 and 60 FR 
50461); however neither amendment affected the superscripted figure, 
and as such the cause for the error is unknown. Further, we have 
contacted members of the public that may have been impacted by the 
typographical error; and they have indicated that, in completing the 
calculation, they have relied on the original formula published in 1991 
rather than the formula published since 1997. This amendment will 
merely restore the formula to that which was published in 1991. The 
second typographical error appears in Figure 28.575, which is the 
graphical representation for Sec.  28.575. Figure 28.575 shows a heel 
angle of 40 degrees while the text of the rule in paragraph (e)(3) 
states a heel angle of 50 degrees. Thus, we corrected Figure 28.575 to 
accurately reflect the rule text.
    46 CFR Parts 71 and 91. 73 FR 35959 amended Sec.  31.10-16 by 
adding the National Cargo Bureau, Inc., as a recognized inspection 
organization. Previously this section only listed the International 
Cargo Gear Bureau, Inc., as a recognized inspection organization. 
Sections 71.65-1 and 91.55-1 referenced Sec.  31.10-16 to identify the 
International Cargo Gear Bureau, Inc., as the cargo gear organization 
authorized to approve cargo gear plans and specifications. The 
International Cargo Gear Bureau, Inc., remains the only authorized 
organization, other than recognized classification societies authorized 
to perform the approval of plans as described in Sec. Sec.  71.65-1 and 
91.55-1. We amended Sec. Sec.  71.65-1 and

[[Page 56506]]

91.55-1 to eliminate confusion, and ensure that mariners continue to be 
directed to appropriate cargo gear plans and specifications approval 
organizations.
    46 CFR Part 401. In Sec. Sec.  401.200 and 401.211, we removed a 
provision requiring pilots to submit fingerprint charts with 
registration applications. We removed these provisions because they 
duplicate the same requirement found in Sec.  401.210(a)(1). In Sec.  
401.450, we amended a reference to a pilot change point located in 
Canada. Previously, the Canadians identified Lock No. 7, Welland Canal, 
as an appropriate pilot change point. The Canadians have relocated the 
pilot change point and it is now located at Port Colburne. Both Welland 
Canal and Port Colburn are under Canadian jurisdiction--rather than 
U.S. jurisdiction--and as such this amendment imposes no, U.S. based, 
substantive burden on the regulated public. This amendment merely 
conveys Canadian operating procedures to mariners that may traverse 
Canadian waters. Pilots traversing Canadian waters have been complying 
with this change for many years. Lastly, we amended Sec.  401.720 to 
reflect the re-codification of 46 U.S.C. 216b(e). Public Law 109-304 
(An Act to complete the codification of title 46, United States Code, 
``Shipping'', as positive law) re-codified 46 U.S.C. 216b(e) as 46 
U.S.C. 9304.
    46 Part 402. We revised the authorities section by removing a 
reference to a Department of Transportation regulation that no longer 
applies to the Coast Guard. We 2104(a) amended Sec.  402.220 by 
removing a reference to a memorandum of agreement between Canada and 
the United States, dated 1961, regarding Great Lakes pilotage, and 
replaced it with a more current version of that agreement dated 1977. 
There were no substantive changes between the two agreements impacting 
the public. Lastly, we revised Sec.  402.320 to reflect the most 
current ``working rules'' on file with the Coast Guard. These working 
rules are compiled by voluntary U.S. registered pilot associations 
authorized to establish pilotage pools. This amendment provides the 
public with information regarding the current working rules compiled by 
those organizations.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

A. Executive Order 12866

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) 
of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not 
require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 
6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not 
reviewed it under that Order. We expect the economic impact of this 
rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Analysis is unnecessary. 
As this rule involves internal agency practices and procedures and non-
substantive changes, it will not impose any costs on the public.

B. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, 
and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. 
This rule does not require a general notice of proposed rulemaking and, 
therefore, is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act. However, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 
605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities.

C. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

D. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism.

E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 or more in any 
one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we 
do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

G. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

H. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

I. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

J. Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs at OMB has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.

K. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are

[[Page 56507]]

technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, 
design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related 
management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by 
voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical 
standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary 
consensus standards.

L. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 5100.1 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded 
that under the Instruction there are no factors in this case that would 
limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the 
Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under 
figure 2-1, paragraphs (34)(a) and (b), of the Instruction from further 
environmental documentation because this rule involves editorial, 
procedural, and internal agency functions. A final ``Environmental 
Analysis Check List'' and a final ``Categorical Exclusion 
Determination'' are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
