ACTION: Notification of fee percentage. AGENCY: NMFS publishes a notification of a 0.69-percent fee for cost recovery under the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Crab Rationalization Program. This action is intended to provide holders of crab allocations with the fee percentage for the 2013/2014 crab fishing year so they can calculate the required payment for cost recovery fees that must be submitted by July 31, 2014.

Fishing under the Program began on August 15, 2005. Regulations implementing the Program can be found at 50 CFR part 680. The Program is a limited access system authorized by section 313(j) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). The Program PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46577 includes a cost recovery provision to collect fees to recover the actual costs directly related to the management, data collection, and enforcement of the Program. NMFS developed the cost recovery provision to conform to statutory requirements and to partially reimburse the agency for the actual costs directly related to the management, data collection, and enforcement of the Program. Section 313(j) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act provided supplementary authority to section 304(d)(2)(A) and additional detail for cost recovery provisions specific to the Program. The cost recovery provision allows collection of 133 percent of the actual management, data collection, and enforcement costs up to 3 percent of the ex-vessel value of crab harvested under the Program. Additionally, section 313(j) requires the harvesting and processing sectors to each pay half the cost recovery fees. Catcher/processor quota share holders are required to pay the full fee percentage for crab processed at sea. A crab allocation holder generally incurs a cost recovery fee liability for every pound of crab landed. The crab allocations include Individual Fishing Quota, Crew Individual Fishing Quota, Individual Processing Quota, Community Development Quota, and the Adak community allocation. The Registered Crab Receiver (RCR) permit holder must collect the fee liability from the crab allocation holder who is landing crab. Additionally, the RCR permit holder must collect his or her own fee liability for all crab delivered to the RCR. The RCR permit holder is responsible for submitting this payment to NMFS on or before the due date of July 31, in the year following the crab fishing year in which landings of crab were made. The dollar amount of the fee due is determined by multiplying the fee percentage (not to exceed three percent) by the ex-vessel value of crab debited from the allocation. Specific details on the Program’s cost recovery provision may be found in the implementing regulations at 50 CFR 680.44. Fee Percentage Each year, NMFS calculates and publishes in the Federal Register the fee percentage according to the factors and methodology described in Federal regulations at § 680.44(c)(2). The formula for determining the fee percentage is the ‘‘direct program costs’’ divided by ‘‘value of the fishery,’’ where ‘‘direct program costs’’ are the direct program costs for the Program for the previous fiscal year, and ‘‘value of the fishery’’ is the ex-vessel value of the E:\FR\FM\01AUN1.SGM 01AUN1 46578 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 148 / Thursday, August 1, 2013 / Notices catch subject to the crab cost recovery fee liability for the current year. Fee collections for any given year may be less than, or greater than, the actual costs and fishery value for that year, because, by regulation, the fee percentage is established in the first quarter of a crab fishery year based on the fishery value and the costs of the prior year. Using this fee percentage formula, the estimated percentage of costs to value for the 2012/2013 fishery was 0.69 percent. Therefore, the fee percentage will be 0.69 percent for the 2013/2014 crab fishing year. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1862; Pub. L. 109– 241; Pub. L. 109–479. Dated: July 29, 2013. Emily H.

Abstract: The aim of this data collection effort is to understand the impact of bundled products and services on the financial decisionmaking of economically-vulnerable consumers in the United States. The information will be collected from economically-vulnerable consumers who consent to participate in these research studies. The target population for this survey collection is low-income, underserved consumers who are considered unbanked, underbanked, or have thin or no credit files and therefore have financial services needs that are not being met. We will collect information about the financial health of these consumers, such as the amount of money they hold in savings, their credit score, and the size of their debt to income ratio. We will also collect information about their financial capability. The purpose of this data collection effort is to understand whether bundled products and services that are designed to build savings and credit for economically-vulnerable consumers have an impact on assets building and financial capability. Request for Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and E:\FR\FM\01AUN1.SGM 01AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    NMFS Alaska Region administers the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands 
Crab Rationalization Program (Program) in the North Pacific. Fishing 
under the Program began on August 15, 2005. Regulations implementing 
the Program can be found at 50 CFR part 680.
    The Program is a limited access system authorized by section 313(j) 
of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act 
(Magnuson-Stevens Act). The Program includes a cost recovery provision 
to collect fees to recover the actual costs directly related to the 
management, data collection, and enforcement of the Program. NMFS 
developed the cost recovery provision to conform to statutory 
requirements and to partially reimburse the agency for the actual costs 
directly related to the management, data collection, and enforcement of 
the Program. Section 313(j) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act provided 
supplementary authority to section 304(d)(2)(A) and additional detail 
for cost recovery provisions specific to the Program. The cost recovery 
provision allows collection of 133 percent of the actual management, 
data collection, and enforcement costs up to 3 percent of the ex-vessel 
value of crab harvested under the Program. Additionally, section 313(j) 
requires the harvesting and processing sectors to each pay half the 
cost recovery fees. Catcher/processor quota share holders are required 
to pay the full fee percentage for crab processed at sea.
    A crab allocation holder generally incurs a cost recovery fee 
liability for every pound of crab landed. The crab allocations include 
Individual Fishing Quota, Crew Individual Fishing Quota, Individual 
Processing Quota, Community Development Quota, and the Adak community 
allocation. The Registered Crab Receiver (RCR) permit holder must 
collect the fee liability from the crab allocation holder who is 
landing crab. Additionally, the RCR permit holder must collect his or 
her own fee liability for all crab delivered to the RCR. The RCR permit 
holder is responsible for submitting this payment to NMFS on or before 
the due date of July 31, in the year following the crab fishing year in 
which landings of crab were made.
    The dollar amount of the fee due is determined by multiplying the 
fee percentage (not to exceed three percent) by the ex-vessel value of 
crab debited from the allocation. Specific details on the Program's 
cost recovery provision may be found in the implementing regulations at 
50 CFR 680.44.

Fee Percentage

    Each year, NMFS calculates and publishes in the Federal Register 
the fee percentage according to the factors and methodology described 
in Federal regulations at Sec.  680.44(c)(2). The formula for 
determining the fee percentage is the ``direct program costs'' divided 
by ``value of the fishery,'' where ``direct program costs'' are the 
direct program costs for the Program for the previous fiscal year, and 
``value of the fishery'' is the ex-vessel value of the

[[Page 46578]]

catch subject to the crab cost recovery fee liability for the current 
year. Fee collections for any given year may be less than, or greater 
than, the actual costs and fishery value for that year, because, by 
regulation, the fee percentage is established in the first quarter of a 
crab fishery year based on the fishery value and the costs of the prior 
year.
    Using this fee percentage formula, the estimated percentage of 
costs to value for the 2012/2013 fishery was 0.69 percent. Therefore, 
the fee percentage will be 0.69 percent for the 2013/2014 crab fishing 
year.
