Board on Coastal Engineering Research, 48659-48660 [2013-19296]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 154 / Friday, August 9, 2013 / Notices Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 1986, and section 334(a) and (b) of the WRDA of 1999, and Section 3176 of the WRDA 2007. The federal actions which implement those authorities have been combined into one program and are being assessed together to effectively and efficiently carry out the multiple goals associated with the authorizations. Additionally to be addressed in this EIS, the USACE has received a proposal from the Missouri River Recovery Implementation Committee, recommending the agency perform an effects analysis and adaptive management of potential management actions on ESA listed species. Addressing this proposal will result in an analysis of management alternatives and adaptive management actions to benefit these species, and thus requires supporting environmental effects analyses which will be included in this Environmental Impact Statement. The Missouri River Recovery Management Plan and EIS will be narrower than the scope and purpose of the study from section 5018(a) of the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 (Missouri River Ecosystem Restoration Plan). That study included the additional purpose of ecosystem restoration and was inclusive of the entire Missouri River watershed, including tributaries, while this plan and EIS will focus exclusively on the purposes of recovery and mitigation and be limited primarily to the areas and objectives prescribed in the authorities listed above. Scoping. To provide the public with an opportunity to provide input on the scope of issues to be addressed and to identify issues related to the proposed action, public scoping is being conducted through October 18, 2013. To facilitate the scoping process, live scoping webinars will be conducted on September 11, 2013 and September 18, 2013 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Daylight Savings time. The webinars can be accessed at https:// connect.dco.dod.mil/mngtplan.

This collection pertains to the recordkeeping requirements contained in the regulations related to the administration of 34 CFR 668 Subpart K Cash Management of the Student Assistance General Provisions. The regulatory language has not changed. These program regulations are designed to provide benefits to Title IV, HEA applicants, and to protect the taxpayers interest. The information collection requirements in 34 CFR 668.163 and 668.165 are necessary to provide students with required information about their eligibility to receive funding under the federal student financial aid programs and to prevent fraud and abuse of program funds by allowing students to reduce or reject aid being offered as well as being made aware of when such funding can be expected to be available. The Department is requesting that sections 34 CFR 668.23 and 668.24 which are currently in 1845–0038 be removed and the corresponding 1,260 hours be transferred to 1845–0022. These two sections are not included in Subpart K and are more appropriately a part of 1845–0022. We believe that during the transfer of the information E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1
