Download as PDF erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 207 / Wednesday, October 28, 2009 / Rules and Regulations VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This final rule establishes tolerances under section 408(d) of FFDCA in response to a petition submitted to the Agency. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted these types of actions from review under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because this final rule has been exempted from review under Executive Order 12866, this final rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, entitled Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001) or Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). This final rule does not contain any information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., nor does it require any special considerations under Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). Since tolerances and exemptions that are established on the basis of a petition under section 408(d) of FFDCA, such as the tolerance in this final rule, do not require the issuance of a proposed rule, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. This final rule directly regulates growers, food processors, food handlers, and food retailers, not States or tribes, nor does this action alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions of section 408(n)(4) of FFDCA. As such, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States or tribal governments, on the relationship between the national government and the States or tribal governments, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government or between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. Thus, the Agency has determined that Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999) and Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) do not apply to this final rule. In addition, this final rule does not impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:04 Oct 27, 2009 Jkt 220001 Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104–4). This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104–113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). VII. Congressional Review Act The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

These rules responded to tribal requests for Service recognition of tribal authority to regulate hunting under established guidelines. These rules allowed the establishment of season dates and bag limits and, thus, harvest at levels compatible with populations and habitat conditions. The early-season rule, which published September 2, 2009 (74 FR 45343), with an effective date of September 1, 2009, correctly included band-tailed pigeon and mourning dove season dates and bag limits in its regulatory text for paragraph (w) of 50 CFR 20.110, which applies to hunters on Fort Apache Indian Reservation lands in Whiteriver, Arizona. However, the late-season rule, which published and became effective on September 25, 2009 (74 FR 49292), did not properly revise paragraph (w) to include subsequently determined duck and Canada goose season dates and bag limits. This correction revises paragraph (w) to include duck and Canada goose season dates and bag limits for the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The substance of the regulations remains unchanged. Administrative Procedure Act We find good cause to waive notice and comment on this correction, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), and the 30–day delay in effective date pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d).

Migratory Bird Hunting; Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations on 
Certain Federal Indian Reservations and Ceded Lands for the 2009-10 
Late Season

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On September 2 and 25, 2009, we, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service (Service), published two final rules that established special 
early- and late-season migratory bird hunting regulations for certain 
tribes on Federal Indian reservations, off-reservation trust lands, and 
ceded lands. In error, the second of these rules omitted from the 
regulatory text pertaining to late-season hunting by the White Mountain 
Apache Tribe the dates and bag limits for duck and Canada goose. This 
document corrects those errors.

DATES: This rule takes effect on October 28, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ron W. Kokel, Division of Migratory 
Bird Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (703/358-1967), or Tina 
Chouinard, Division of Migratory Bird Management, U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service (731/432-0981).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 2 and 25, 2009, we published 
final rules that established special early- and late-season migratory 
bird hunting regulations for certain tribes on Federal Indian 
reservations, off-reservation trust

[[Page 55468]]

lands, and ceded lands. These rules responded to tribal requests for 
Service recognition of tribal authority to regulate hunting under 
established guidelines. These rules allowed the establishment of season 
dates and bag limits and, thus, harvest at levels compatible with 
populations and habitat conditions. The early-season rule, which 
published September 2, 2009 (74 FR 45343), with an effective date of 
September 1, 2009, correctly included band-tailed pigeon and mourning 
dove season dates and bag limits in its regulatory text for paragraph 
(w) of 50 CFR 20.110, which applies to hunters on Fort Apache Indian 
Reservation lands in Whiteriver, Arizona. However, the late-season 
rule, which published and became effective on September 25, 2009 (74 FR 
49292), did not properly revise paragraph (w) to include subsequently 
determined duck and Canada goose season dates and bag limits. This 
correction revises paragraph (w) to include duck and Canada goose 
season dates and bag limits for the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The 
substance of the regulations remains unchanged.

Administrative Procedure Act

    We find good cause to waive notice and comment on this correction, 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), and the 30-day delay in effective 
date pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d). Notice and comment are unnecessary 
because this rule merely corrects the regulations. The substance of the 
regulations remains unchanged. Therefore, this correction is being 
published as a final regulation and is effective as shown under DATES.
