Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act Provisions; Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Monkfish Fishery; Emergency Action
Document Number: 2013-10023
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS implements a temporary emergency action that suspends existing monkfish possession limits for vessels issued both a Federal limited access Northeast multispecies permit and a limited access monkfish Category C or D permit that are fishing under a monkfish day- at-sea in the monkfish Northern Fishery Management Area. This action is necessary to help mitigate expected adverse economic and social harm resulting from substantial reductions to the 2013 annual catch limits for several stocks managed under the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan. The intent is to provide additional fishing opportunities to vessels affected by reductions to groundfish catch limits, without resulting in overfishing monkfish within the Northern or Southern Fishery Management Areas.

As a requirement of NEPA, we must identify resource issues, develop alternatives for the use of GMCs, and evaluate the effects of each of our chosen alternatives on the human environment.
Agency Forms Submitted for OMB Review, Request for Comments
Document Number: 2013-09890
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-04-30
Agency: Railroad Retirement Board, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information to determine (1) the practical utility of the collection; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of the publication date. In accordance with Executive Order 12862, the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) conducts a number of customer surveys designed to determine the kinds and quality of services our beneficiaries, claimants, employers and members of the public want and expect, as well as their satisfaction with existing RRB services. The information collected is used by RRB management to monitor customer satisfaction by determining to what extent services are satisfactory and where and to what extent services can be improved. The surveys are limited to data collections that solicit strictly voluntary opinions, and do not collect information which is required or regulated. The information collection, which was first approved by the OMB in 1997, provides the RRB with a generic clearance authority. This generic authority allows the RRB to submit a variety of new or revised customer survey instruments (needed to timely implement customer monitoring activities) to OMB for expedited review and approval. Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (78 FR 13914 on March 1, 2013) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.

Proposed Collection, 60-day Comment Request: Certificate of Confidentiality Electronic Application System
Document Number: 2013-10041
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-04-29
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health
In compliance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, to provide the opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the Office of Extramural Research (OER) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is developing an electronic application form for the submission of requests to NIH for Certificates of Confidentiality (CoCs). Written comments and/or suggestions from the public and affected agencies are invited on one or more of the following points: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the function of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. To Submit Comments and For Further Information: To obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, submit comments in writing, or request more information on the proposed project, contact: Dr. Ann M. Hardy, NIH Extramural Human Research Protections Officer and Coordinator, Certificates of Confidentiality, Office of Extramural Programs, OER, NIH, 3701 Rockledge Drive, Room 3002, Bethesda, MD 20892; or call the non-toll-free number (301) 435-2690; or email your request, including your address, to hardyan@od.nih.gov. Formal requests for additional plans and instruments must be requested in writing. Comment Due Date: Comments regarding this information collection are best assured of having their full effect if received within 60 days of the date of this publication. Proposed Collection: Certificate of Confidentiality Electronic Application System 0925-New, Office of Extramural Research (OER), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: This application system will provide one electronic form to be used by all research organizations that wish to request a Certificate of Confidentiality (CoC) from NIH. As described in the authorizing legislation (Section 301(d) of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 241(d)), CoCs are issued by the agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including NIH, to authorize researchers conducting sensitive research to protect the privacy of human research subjects by enabling them to refuse to release names and identifying characteristics of subjects to anyone not connected with the research. At the NIH, the issuance of CoCs has been delegated to the individual NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs). The NIH ICs collectively issue approximately 1,000 new CoCs each year for eligible research projects. However, the process for submitting a CoC request is not consistent across the ICs, which creates confusion for applicants. To make the application process consistent across the entire agency, the OER is proposing to use an electronic application system that will be accessed by research organizations that wish to request a CoC from any NIH IC. Having one system for all CoC applications to NIH will be efficient for both applicants and NIH staff who process these requests. As is currently done, the NIH will use the information in the application to determine eligibility for a CoC and to issue the CoC to the requesting organization. Office of Management and Budget approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours is 1,500.
Amendment of Restricted Areas R-6703A, B, C, D; and Establishment of Restricted Areas R-6703E, F, G, H, I, and J; WA
Document Number: 2013-10040
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies the internal boundaries of R-6703 by further subdividing the airspace from the current four subareas (A through D) to ten subareas (A through J). This change is totally contained within the current outer boundaries of R-6703. The designated altitudes and time of designation remain as currently published. In addition, the name ``Fort Lewis, WA,'' in the titles of the restricted areas is changed to ``Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA. The name of the using agency is changed from ``Commanding General, Fort Lewis, WA,'' to ``Joint Base Garrison Commander, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA.'' The name changes are the result of Department of Defense organizational consolidations. In addition to better accommodating training requirements, this also allows more efficient use of airspace through increased ability to activate only those subareas actually needed for the mission.
