Federal Maritime Commission. Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC or Commission) amends its regulations relating to agency organization to reflect changes in reporting requirements for the Office of Inspector General, implemented in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. DATES: Effective Date: September 27, 2012. SUMMARY: 16:42 Sep 25, 2012 Jkt 226001 Rebecca A. Fenneman, General Counsel, Federal Maritime Commission, 800 North Capitol Street NW., Washington, DC 20573, (202) 523–5740, GeneralCounsel@fmc.gov. The FMC amends Part 501 of Title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations to reflect a change in reporting requirements for Inspectors General of Designated Federal Entities, implemented in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376, July 21, 2010 (Dodd-Frank). In Dodd-Frank, signed into law on July 21, 2010, Congress amended Section 8G of the Inspector General Act of 1978 (IG Act), to provide, as pertinent here, that the term ‘‘head of the designated Federal entity’’ means ‘‘the board or commission of the designated Federal entity.’’ Public Law 111–203, sec. 989B (1)(A), 124 Stat. 1376, 1945. Because Section 8G of the IG Act provides that Inspectors General report to and are under the general supervision of the head of a designated Federal entity, the effect of the changed definition of ‘‘head of the designated Federal entity’’ in the Dodd-Frank amendment is that the FMC’s Inspector General reports to and is under the general supervision of the entire Commission. This change in the reporting and supervision of the Inspector General necessitates minor amendments in the Commission’s rules dealing with lines of responsibility (46 CFR 501.4), and functions of the organizational components of the Commission (46 CFR 501.5). With respect to lines of responsibility, 46 CFR 501.4(a) is amended to eliminate SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 18. Sections 180.536 and 180.550 are removed. ■ § 180.1035 46 CFR Part 501 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 17. Section 180.458 is amended by removing the entry for ‘‘Soybean, soapstock’’ from the table in paragraph (a). ■ §§ 180.536 and 180.550 FEDERAL MARITIME COMMISSION PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the Office of Inspector General from the list of offices that report to the Chairman, and a new paragraph, 46 CFR 501.4(b), is added to reflect that the Inspector General reports to the Commission. With regard to functions of organizational components of the Commission, 46 CFR 501.5(a), which sets out the functions of the Chairman, is amended to eliminate the Office of Inspector General from the list of offices that receive management direction from the Chairman, to remove 46 CFR 501.5(a)(2) from this section, and to renumber 46 CFR 501.5(a)(3) and 46 CFR 501.5(a)(4) as 46 CFR 501.5(a)(2) and 46 CFR 501.5(a)(3) respectively. Finally, 46 CFR 501.5(b), which sets out the functions of the Commissioners, is amended by adding language providing that the Inspector General reports to and is under the general supervision of the Commission, and by adding section 501.5(b)(1) to describe the functions of the Office of Inspector General. Because the changes made in this Final Rule address only internal agency organization, which do not require notice and public comment pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, this rule is published as final. This rule is not a ‘‘major rule’’ under 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: NMFS issues this final rule to implement the management measures of Amendment 20A (Amendment 20A) to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (FMP) as prepared and submitted by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council). This final rule revises the wreckfish individual transferable quota (ITQ) program, by defining and reverting inactive wreckfish quota shares, redistributing reverted quota shares to remaining shareholders, establishing a cap on the number of wreckfish quota shares a single entity may own, and establishing an appeals process for redistribution of reverted wreckfish quota shares. The intent of this rule is to help achieve the optimum yield (OY) from the wreckfish commercial sector in accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). DATES: This rule is effective October 26, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nikhil Mehta, telephone: 727–824– 5305, or email: nikhil.mehta@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Wreckfish is part of the snapper-grouper fishery and is managed under the FMP. The FMP was prepared by the Council and SUMMARY: § 501.5 Functions of the organizational components of the Federal Maritime Commission. * 50 CFR Part 622 PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 59129 is implemented through regulations at 50 CFR part 622 under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Act. On January 12, 2012, NMFS published a notice of availability for Amendment 20A and requested comments (77 FR 1908). On March 30, 2012, NMFS published a proposed rule for Amendment 20A and requested public comments (77 FR 19165). The proposed rule and Amendment 20A outline the rationale for the actions contained in this final rule. Amendment 20A was approved by the Secretary of Commerce on April 6, 2012. A summary of the actions implemented by this final rule are provided below. This final rule revises the wreckfish ITQ program, established in 1992, by defining and reverting inactive wreckfish quota shares, redistributing reverted quota shares to remaining shareholders, establishing a share cap, and establishing an appeals process for redistribution of reverted wreckfish quota shares. The intent of this rule is to achieve OY in the wreckfish commercial sector while maximizing harvest potential and not exceeding the annual catch limit (ACL). Changes From the Proposed Rule When the Council took final action to approve Amendment 20A in December 2011, there were 20 wreckfish shareholders. Of those 20 shareholders, 13 were considered to be ‘‘inactive’’ and 7 ‘‘active’’ as defined in Amendment 20A. The 13 inactive shareholders held 28.18 percent of the shares, which would be redistributed among the 7 active wreckfish shareholders. After the Council took final action, several share transfers occurred which changed the distribution of shares in the wreckfish commercial sector of the snappergrouper fishery. As of September 26, 2012, there are 6 active shareholders and 4 inactive shareholders. The active shareholders now hold 98.599 percent of the shares, and the inactive shareholders now hold 1.401 percent of the shares. The proposed rule and Amendment 20A state that 5 percent of the wreckfish quota shares will be setaside, to resolve any appeals, for a period of 90 days starting on the effective date of the final rule. Due to the share transfers that occurred after the Council took final action to approve Amendment 20A in December 2011, only 1.401 percent of the shares remains ‘‘inactive’’ and thus are available to be reverted and redistributed. Therefore, only 1.401 percent is available as the set-aside to resolve any appeals, and NMFS will redistribute any shares remaining after the appeals process is complete.

Reporting and Supervision of Inspector General

September 20, 2012.
AGENCY: Federal Maritime Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC or Commission) amends its 
regulations relating to agency organization to reflect changes in 
reporting requirements for the Office of Inspector General, implemented 
in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

DATES: Effective Date: September 27, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rebecca A. Fenneman, General Counsel, 
Federal Maritime Commission, 800 North Capitol Street NW., Washington, 
DC 20573, (202) 523-5740, GeneralCounsel@fmc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FMC amends Part 501 of Title 46 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations to reflect a change in reporting 
requirements for Inspectors General of Designated Federal Entities, 
implemented in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer 
Protection Act, Public Law 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376, July 21, 2010 
(Dodd-Frank). In Dodd-Frank, signed into law on July 21, 2010, Congress 
amended Section 8G of the Inspector General Act of 1978 (IG Act), to 
provide, as pertinent here, that the term ``head of the designated 
Federal entity'' means ``the board or commission of the designated 
Federal entity.'' Public Law 111-203, sec. 989B (1)(A), 124 Stat. 1376, 
1945. Because Section 8G of the IG Act provides that Inspectors General 
report to and are under the general supervision of the head of a 
designated Federal entity, the effect of the changed definition of 
``head of the designated Federal entity'' in the Dodd-Frank amendment 
is that the FMC's Inspector General reports to and is under the general 
supervision of the entire Commission. This change in the reporting and 
supervision of the Inspector General necessitates minor amendments in 
the Commission's rules dealing with lines of responsibility (46 CFR 
501.4), and functions of the organizational components of the 
Commission (46 CFR 501.5).
    With respect to lines of responsibility, 46 CFR 501.4(a) is amended 
to eliminate the Office of Inspector General from the list of offices 
that report to the Chairman, and a new paragraph, 46 CFR 501.4(b), is 
added to reflect that the Inspector General reports to the Commission. 
With regard to functions of organizational components of the 
Commission, 46 CFR 501.5(a), which sets out the functions of the 
Chairman, is amended to eliminate the Office of Inspector General from 
the list of offices that receive management direction from the 
Chairman, to remove 46 CFR 501.5(a)(2) from this section, and to 
renumber 46 CFR 501.5(a)(3) and 46 CFR 501.5(a)(4) as 46 CFR 
501.5(a)(2) and 46 CFR 501.5(a)(3) respectively. Finally, 46 CFR 
501.5(b), which sets out the functions of the Commissioners, is amended 
by adding language providing that the Inspector General reports to and 
is under the general supervision of the Commission, and by adding 
section 501.5(b)(1) to describe the functions of the Office of 
Inspector General.
    Because the changes made in this Final Rule address only internal 
agency organization, which do not require notice and public comment 
pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, this rule 
is published as final. This rule is not a ``major rule'' under 5 U.S.C. 
804(2).
