AGENCY: FRA is notifying the public that the correct docket number for the Locomotive Safety Standards notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) is FRA– 2009–0094. The NPRM issued on January 12, 2011, incorrectly identified docket number FRA–2009–0095 as the public docket for this rulemaking proceeding. FRA is requesting that all comments related to this proceeding be submitted to FRA–2009–0094.

On January 12, 2011, FRA published an NPRM related to locomotive safety standards. See 76 FR 2200. The NPRM established a public docket to receive comments in response to FRA’s proposal related to locomotive safety standards. That NPRM mistakenly lists FRA–2009–0095 (‘‘incorrect docket’’) as the docket number for the NPRM. The correct docket number for this proceeding is FRA–2009–94 (‘‘correct docket’’). FRA requests that comments to the NPRM be submitted to the correct docket. Comments submitted to the incorrect docket will be fully considered as part of the locomotive safety standards rulemaking. Because the incorrect docket is listed in the January 12, 2011, Federal Register document issuing the NPRM, comments submitted to the incorrect docket will remain valid. FRA will transfer all comments and information that are received in the incorrect docket to the correct docket. As such, interested parties that wish to read comments to the NPRM should access docket FRA–2009–0094 to locate the comments.

ACTION: Proposed rule; request for comments. AGENCY: NMFS proposes regulations to implement Amendment 37 to the Fishery Management Plan for Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs (FMP). If approved, these regulations would amend the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands Crab Rationalization Program by establishing a process for eligible contract signatories to request that NMFS exempt holders of West-designated individual fishing quota (IFQ) and individual processor quota (IPQ) in the Western Aleutian Islands golden king crab fishery from the West regional delivery requirements. Federal regulations require Westdesignated golden king crab IFQ to be delivered to a processor in the West region of the Aleutian Islands with an exact amount of unused Westdesignated IPQ. However, processing capacity may not be available each season. Amendment 37 is necessary to prevent disruption to the Western Aleutian Islands golden king crab fishery, while providing for the sustained participation of municipalities in the region. This proposed action is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the FMP, and other applicable law.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The king and Tanner crab fisheries in the exclusive economic zone of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) are managed under the FMP. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) prepared the FMP under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., as amended by the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108–199, section 801). Amendments 18 ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 and 19 to the FMP implemented the BSAI Crab Rationalization Program (Program) in a final rule published on March 2, 2005 (70 FR 10174). Regulations implementing the FMP and all amendments to the Program are at 50 CFR part 680, and general regulations related to fishery management are at 50 CFR part 600. Background In 2005, NMFS established the Program as a catch share program for nine crab fisheries in the BSAI. The Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) portion of the Program assigned quota share (QS) to persons based on their historic participation in one or more of these nine BSAI crab fisheries during a specific time period. Under the Program, NMFS issued four types of QS: catcher vessel owner (CVO) QS was assigned to holders of License Limitation Program (LLP) licenses who delivered their catch onshore or to stationary floating crab processors; catcher/processor vessel owner (CPO) QS was assigned to LLP holders that harvested and processed their catch at sea; captains and crew onboard catcher/ processor vessels were issued catcher/ processor crew (CPC) QS; and captains and crew onboard catcher vessels were issued catcher vessel crew (CVC) QS. Each year, a person who holds QS may receive IFQ, which is an exclusive harvest privilege for a portion of the annual total allowable catch (TAC). Under the program, QS holders can form cooperatives to pool the harvest of the IFQ on fewer vessels to minimize operational costs. NMFS also issued processor quota share (PQS) under the Program. Each year, PQS yields an exclusive privilege to receive (for processing) a portion of the IFQ in each of the nine BSAI crab fisheries. This annual exclusive processing privilege is called IPQ. A portion of the QS issued yields IFQ that is required to be delivered to a processor with a like amount of unused IPQ. IFQ derived from CVO QS is subject to annual designation as either Class A IFQ or Class B IFQ. Ninety percent of the IFQ derived from CVO QS for a fishery is designated as Class A IFQ, and the remaining 10 percent of the IFQ is designated as Class B IFQ. Class A IFQ must be matched and delivered to a processor with IPQ. Each year there is a one-to-one match of the total pounds of Class A IFQ with the total pounds of IPQ issued in each crab fishery and region. Class B IFQ is not required to be delivered to a processor with IPQ. In most crab fisheries, the Program established regional designations for QS and PQS to ensure that municipalities E:\FR\FM\15FEP1.SGM 15FEP1
