For that reason, this action: • Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993); • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.); • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.); • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4); • Does not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); • Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the Clean Air Act; and • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address disproportionate human health or environmental effects with practical, appropriate, and legally permissible methods under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the State, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law. The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this action and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:52 Mar 24, 2011 Jkt 223001 the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by May 24, 2011. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements (see section 307(b)(2)).

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: NMFS closes the penaeid shrimp commercial sector to trawling, i.e., brown, pink, and white shrimp, in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off South Carolina in the South Atlantic. This closure is necessary to protect the spawning stock of white shrimp that has been severely depleted by unusually cold weather conditions. DATES: The closure is effective March 22, 2011 until the effective date of a notification of opening which will be published in the Federal Register. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steve Branstetter, 727–570–5305; fax: 727–570–5583; e-mail: Steve.Branstetter@noaa.gov. SUMMARY: The penaeid shrimp fishery of the South Atlantic is managed under the Fishery Management Plan for the Shrimp Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (FMP). The FMP was prepared by the South Atlantic Fishery Management SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Council (Council) and is implemented under the authority of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622. Under 50 CFR 622.35(d)(1), NMFS may close the EEZ adjacent to South Atlantic states that have closed their waters to harvest of brown, pink, and white shrimp to protect the white shrimp spawning stock that has been severely depleted by cold weather. Consistent with those procedures and criteria, the state of South Carolina has determined, based on the information from standardized assessments, that unusually cold temperatures have resulted in at least an 80-percent reduction of the white shrimp populations in its state waters. South Carolina closed its waters on January 10, 2011, to the harvest of brown, pink, and white shrimp, and has requested that the Council and NMFS implement a concurrent closure of the EEZ off South Carolina. The Council convened a review panel on March 2, 2011, to evaluate the data supporting the states’ request. Based on the review panel’s recommendation, the Council approved South Carolina’s request and subsequently requested that NMFS concurrently close the EEZ off South Carolina to the harvest of brown, pink, and white shrimp. NMFS has determined that the recommended closure conforms with the procedures and criteria specified in the FMP and the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and, therefore, implements the closure effective March 22, 2011. The closure will be effective until the ending date of the closure in South Carolina, but may be ended earlier based on a request from the state. In no case will the closure remain effective after June 6, 2011. NMFS will terminate the closure of the EEZ by filing a notification to that effect with the Office of the Federal Register. During the closure, as specified in 50 CFR 622.35(d)(2), no person may: (1) Trawl for brown, pink, or white shrimp in the EEZ off South Carolina; (2) possess on board a fishing vessel brown, pink, or white shrimp in or from the EEZ off South Carolina unless the vessel is in transit through the area and all nets with a mesh size of less than 4 inches (10.2 cm) are stowed below deck; or (3) for a vessel trawling within 25 nautical miles of the baseline from which the territorial sea is measured, use or have on board a trawl net with a mesh size less than 4 inches (10.2 cm), as measured between the centers of opposite knots when pulled taut.

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is correcting a final rule that appeared in 
the Federal Register on December 14, 2010. That rule amended Coast 
Guard regulations governing the maximum weight and number of passengers 
that may safely be permitted on board a vessel and other stability 
regulations, including increasing the Assumed Average Weight per Person 
(AAWPP) to 185 lb. The rule also improved and updated intact stability 
and subdivision and damage stability regulations.

DATES: These changes are effective April 25, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    The Coast Guard is correcting a final rule that appeared in the 
Federal Register on December 14, 2010 (75 FR 78064). That rule, among 
other things, added new definitions of ``Assumed average weight per 
person'', ``Constructed'', and ``Lightweight'' to 46 CFR 170.055. The 
definition of ``Length'' in that section was left unchanged except that 
it was redesignated to a different paragraph. Due to a clerical error, 
however, the amendatory instructions in the rule would result in two 
redundant definitions of ``Lightweight'' and the elimination of a 
definition of ``Length'' in Sec.  170.055. This correction remedies 
that error by removing the second occurrence of a definition of 
``Lightweight'' and restoring the definition of ``Length'' in that 
section. This correction also revises an incorrect internet address in 
46 CFR 170.090(g).

Sec.  170.055  Definitions concerning a vessel.

* * * * *
    (k) Length means the distance between fore and aft points on a 
vessel. The following specific terms are used and correspond to 
specific fore and aft points:
    (1) Length between perpendiculars (LBP) means the horizontal 
distance measured between perpendiculars taken at the forward-most and 
after-most points on the waterline corresponding to the deepest 
operating draft. For a small passenger vessel that has underwater 
projections extending forward of the forward-most point or aft of the 
after-most point on the deepest waterline of the vessel, the Commanding 
Officer, U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Center, may include the length 
or a portion of the length of the underwater projections in the value 
used for the LBP for the purposes of this subchapter. The length or a 
portion of the length of projections that contribute more than 2 
percent of the underwater volume of the vessel is normally added to the 
actual LBP.
    (2) Length overall (LOA) means the horizontal distance between the 
forward-most and after-most points on the hull.
    (3) Length on the waterline (LWL) means the horizontal distance 
between the forward-most and after-most points on a vessel's waterline.
    (4) Length on deck (LOD) means the length between the forward-most 
and after-most points on a specified deck measured along the deck, 
excluding sheer.
    (5) Load line length (LLL) has the same meaning that is provided 
for the term length in Sec.  42.13-15(a) of this chapter.
    (6) Mean length is the average of the length between perpendiculars 
(LBP) and the length on deck (LOD).
    (l) Lightweight means the displacement of a vessel with fixed 
ballast and with machinery liquids at operating levels but without any 
cargo, stores, consumable liquids, water ballast, or persons and their 
effects.
