[FR Doc. 2010–19557 Filed 8–6–10; 8:45 am] On April 20, 2010, a massive, oil spill occurred as a result of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico off the State of Louisiana, near the Mississippi River Delta. The oil spill continues to threaten the Gulf of Mexico environment and its inhabitants, including the following five species of sea turtles: The green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas), hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), Kemp’s ridley sea turtle (Lepidochelys kempii), leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), and loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta). We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) have authorized Texas State Aquarium, under an Endangered Species Act (ESA) section 10(c) permit (TE794593), to aid sea turtles affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Efforts to rehabilitate the turtles are currently taking place and will continue to be an ongoing process until we are satisfied that the sea turtles no longer need rehabilitation. Rehabilitation may include the following activities: Examine and document stranded sea turtles; aid with holding/restraining live turtles while others permitted rush to the scene, examine tags, apply tags, collect data/ specimens, or attach satellite transmitters; examine for tags and tag live sea turtles; transport live and dead sea turtles to rehabilitation facilities, satellite transmitter attachment sites, and necropsy sites and necropsy dead sea turtles and collect samples; examine gut contents from dead sea turtles; attach satellite transmitters to nesting Kemp’s ridley turtles; locate egg chambers and retrieve eggs for protected incubation; provide care for incubating sea turtle eggs; release hatchling sea turtles; examine unhatched eggs and collect tissue/gonad samples; capture juvenile sea turtles in nets and collect associated data; collect blood samples from stranded, nesting, and captured sea turtles; and collect small tissue samples from live stranded, nesting, and captured sea turtles.

Box 1848, Middlesboro, KY 40965–1848; telephone 606–248–2817. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Draft GMP/EIS evaluated 3 alternatives. Alternative A (No Action) provides a baseline evaluation of existing resource conditions, visitor use, facilities, and management at the park. Alternative A would continue the current management practices into the future. There would be only minor changes in resources management, visitor programs, or facilities. Under Alternative B opportunities for visitor access would be increased by providing additional park facilities as compared to Alternative A. This would expand visitor use of the park, while avoiding and minimizing potential adverse effects on natural and cultural resources. This would be achieved by strategically locating and limiting the numbers and types of new facilities, primarily within the newly established Developed Zones at Fern Lake, areas adjacent to the Hensley Settlement, the Visitor Center area, and the Wilderness Campground. Alternative C would provide a greater amount of visitor access and facilities in the park as compared to Alternative A. Alternative C would also feature increased levels of education, outreach, and formalized partnering. Otherwise, Alternative C would be similar to Alternative B in that it provides slightly expanded visitor access to the park while minimizing the potential for adverse effects on resources. New facilities would be sited and designed within their cultural and natural settings and context. Sustainable practices would be implemented and new facilities would be designed to be unobtrusive. The Draft GMP/EIS was available for public and agency review from October 16, 2009, through January 8, 2010. Copies of the document were sent to individuals, agencies, organizations, and local libraries.

Grants will be issued as cooperative agreements with the expectation that there will be considerable engagement by ETA and ODEP with states and their local workforce investment areas throughout the life of the Initiative. Extensive technical assistance will be available to grantees and an independent evaluation of the projects will be conducted utilizing quantitative and qualitative data from grantees.
