Safety Zone; Missouri River From the Border Between Montana and North Dakota
The Coast Guard is extending the effective period for the temporary safety zone on the specified waters of the Missouri River from the Montana and North Dakota border to the confluence with the Mississippi River, extending the entire width of the river. Temporary section 33 CFR 165.T11-0511, which established the temporary safety zone, was set to expire August 30, 2011. Extending the effective period for this safety zone provides continued and uninterrupted protection of levees and personnel involved in ongoing high water response. Continuing the safety zone will significantly reduce the threat of destruction to levees and vessels and tows.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA): Suspension of Section 238(c) Single-Family Mortgage Insurance in Military Impacted Areas
This proposed rule would suspend FHA's mortgage insurance program for military impacted areas under section 238(c) of the National Housing Act (Act). This single-family mortgage insurance program, established by regulation in 1977, has been significantly underutilized for the past several years. Additionally, these mortgage loans are insured under comparable terms and conditions as loans insured under HUD's primary single-family mortgage insurance program under section 203(b) of the National Housing Act. Accordingly, those borrowers who would be served under section 238(c) of the Act are served equally well under the section 203(b) mortgage insurance program. The suspension of this mortgage insurance program is consistent with the President's budget request for Fiscal Year 2012.

Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Northeast Skate Complex Fishery; Secretarial Emergency Action
NMFS proposes emergency regulations to adjust catch limits in the Northeast Skate Complex Fishery. The proposed action was developed by NMFS to increase the fishing year (FY) 2011 catch limits for the skate fishery, which should extend the fishing season over a longer duration than occurred in FY 2010, thus ensuring a more steady market supply. The proposed increases in catch limits are supported by new scientific information indicating significant increases in skate biomass.

Magnuson-Stevens Act Provisions; Fisheries Off West Coast States; Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery; Amendments 20 and 21; Trawl Rationalization Program; Correcting Amendments
NMFS announces a correcting amendment to regulations implementing the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan (PCGFMP).

Amendment 20 established a trawl rationalization program for the Pacific Coast groundfish fishery, which included an individual fishing quota (IFQ) program for the shorebased trawl fleet (including whiting and nonwhiting sectors); and cooperative (coop) programs for the at-sea (whiting only) mothership and catcher/processor trawl fleets. Amendment 21 established fixed allocations for limited entry trawl participants.
National Dairy Promotion and Research Program; Invitation To Submit Comments on Proposed Amendments to the Order

The proposal would modify the number of National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (Dairy Board) members in eight regions, merge Region 8 and Region 10, merge Region 12 and Region 13, and apportion Idaho as a separate region.

Draft Guidance for Industry on Tablet Scoring: Nomenclature, Labeling, and Data for Evaluation; Availability
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ``Tablet Scoring: Nomenclature, Labeling, and Data for Evaluation.'' This draft guidance provides recommendations to sponsors of new drug applications (NDAs) and abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) regarding what criteria should be met to facilitate the evaluation and labeling of tablets that have been scored. (A scoring feature facilitates tablet splitting, which is the practice of breaking or cutting a higher- strength tablet into smaller portions.) Specifically, this draft guidance recommends guidelines to follow, data to provide, and criteria to meet and detail in an application to approve a scored tablet; and nomenclature and labeling for approved scored tablets. This guidance does not address specific finished-product release testing, where additional requirements may be appropriate for scored tablets.

FDA's Public Database of Products With Orphan-Drug Designation: Replacing Non-Informative Code Names With Descriptive Identifiers
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Office of Orphan Products Development, is announcing that it has replaced non- informative code names with descriptive identifiers on its public database of products that have received orphan-drug designation. The Orphan Drug Act mandates that FDA provide notice to the public respecting the designation of a drug as an orphan-drug. FDA typically provides public notice by publishing a drug's generic or trade name upon orphan designation. Where a designated drug does not have a generic or trade name, publishing a non-informative code name does not meet the statutory disclosure requirement because the public would not be able to identify the drug that has received orphan designation.
Determination That OPANA ER (Oxymorphone Hydrochloride) Extended-Release Tablets, 7.5 Milligrams and 15 Milligrams, Were Not Withdrawn From Sale for Reasons of Safety or Effectiveness

This determination means that FDA will not begin procedures to withdraw approval of abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) that refer to these drug products, and it will allow FDA to continue to approve ANDAs for oxymorphone HCl extended- release tablets, 7.5 mg and 15 mg, if all other legal and regulatory requirements are met.

The objects are imported pursuant to a loan agreement with the foreign owner or custodian. I also determine that the exhibition or display of the exhibit objects at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York, from on or about September 27, 2011, until on or about January 16, 2012, and at possible additional exhibitions or venues yet to be determined, is in the national interest. I have ordered that Public Notice of these Determinations be published in the Federal Register.
Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Northeast Multispecies Fishery; Trip Limit Decrease for the Common Pool Fishery
NMFS decreases the trip limits for Gulf of Maine (GOM) and George's Bank (GB) cod for Northeast (NE) multispecies common pool vessels for the 2011 fishing year (FY), through April 30, 2012.

This action is necessary to allow the fisheries to continue operating. It is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the fishery management plan for the BSAI management area.
EPA Seeking Input Materials Measurement; Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Recycling, and Source Reduction Measurement in the U.S.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) issued a notice in the Federal Register of August 2, 2011 soliciting stakeholder input regarding the efficacy and scope of the MSW Characterization Report called ``Municipal Solid Waste in the United States'' as part of a broader discussion about sustainable materials management. This information will be used to develop new measurement definitions and protocols for measurement of these materials, as well as the possible addition of construction and demolition (C&D) materials and non-hazardous industrial materials to the list of materials addressed in future efforts. This effort could lead to the creation of a new measurement report that the EPA will make publicly available. This document is extending the comment period from August 31, 2011 to September 30, 2011.
