SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES FDA is announcing the availability of an SECG entitled ‘‘Small Entity Compliance Guide—Declaring Color Additives in Animal Foods.’’ This SECG aids industry in complying with the requirements of the final rule published in the Federal Register of November 17, 2011 (76 FR 71248). FDA has prepared this SECG in accordance with section 212 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (Pub. L. 104–121). This document is intended to provide guidance to small businesses on the requirements of the final rule, which implements a portion of the 1990 amendments. The 1990 amendments, among other things, provided for the declaration of certified color additives on the labels of human and animal food, including animal feeds and pet foods. The 1990 amendments also provided for the listing on food labels of the common or usual names of all color additives required to be certified by FDA. This regulation deals with the requirements associated with animal food only. Before passage of the 1990 amendments, the FD&C Act provided that colorings could be declared collectively on food product labels using the term ‘‘colorings.’’ The 2011 regulation requires that certified color additives be declared on labeling of animal food by their common or usual name, but color additives exempt from certification (e.g., caramel, paprika, and beet juice) may still be declared collectively. The rule makes these animal food regulations consistent with the regulations regarding the declaration of certified color additives on the labels of human food. The rule also suggests appropriate terminology for the declaration of noncertified color additives on the labels of animal food. II. Significance of Guidance 13:44 Sep 26, 2013 III. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This SECG refers to previously approved collections of information found in FDA regulations. These collections of information are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520.) The collections of information in the regulation ‘‘Animal Food Labeling; Declaration of Certifiable Color Additives’’ (21 CFR 501.22(k)(1) and (2)) have been approved under OMB control number 0910–0721. IV. Comments Interested persons may submit either electronic comments regarding this document to http://www.regulations.gov or written comments to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES). It is only necessary to send one set of comments. Identify comments with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. Received comments may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and will be posted to the docket at http:// www.regulations.gov. V.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Norfolk Southern Corporation, the bridge owner, requested three, 6-hour closures for the Norfolk Southern RR Bridge over Lake Pontchartrain, Mile 4.80, near Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, LA. The bridge has a horizontal clearance of 105 feet and a vertical clearance of two feet, above Mean Sea Level, in the closed-tonavigation position and an unlimited vertical clearance in the open-tonavigation position. The bridge opens on signal as per 33 CFR 117.5. The deviation period will be October 8, 9 and 10, 2013 from 8 a.m. through 2 p.m. each of those days. These closure periods will allow the replacement of the bridge joints as required in a normal maintenance cycle. This waterway is used by both commercial and recreational vessel traffic. No previous coordination was made with the waterway users though the closure times were chosen to minimize the impact to these users. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed positions may do so at anytime. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure. AGENCY: NMFS announces that the 2013 summer flounder commercial quota allocated to the State of New York has been harvested. Vessels issued a commercial Federal fisheries permit for the summer flounder fishery may not land summer flounder in New York for the remainder of calendar year 2013, unless additional quota becomes available through a transfer from another state. Regulations governing the summer flounder fishery require publication of this notification to advise New York that the quota has been harvested and to advise vessel permit holders and dealer permit holders that no Federal commercial quota is available for landing summer flounder in New York. DATES: Effective October 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carly Bari, (978) 281–9224, or Carly.Bari@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations governing the summer flounder fishery are found at 50 CFR part 648. The regulations require annual specification of a commercial quota that pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:44 Sep 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 is apportioned on a percentage basis among the coastal states from North Carolina through Maine. The process to set the annual commercial quota and the percent allocated to each state is described in § 648.102. The initial total commercial quota for summer flounder for the 2013 fishing year is 11,793,596 lb (5,349,575 kg) (77 FR 76942, December 31, 2012). The percent allocated to vessels landing summer flounder in New York is 7.64699 percent, resulting in a commercial quota of 901,855 lb (409,081 kg). The 2013 allocation was adjusted to 842,605 lb (382,206 kg) after deduction of research set-aside and adjustment for prior years’ quota overages. The Administrator, Northeast Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), monitors the state commercial landings and determines when a state’s commercial quota has been harvested. NMFS is required to publish notification in the Federal Register advising and notifying commercial vessels and dealer permit holders that, effective upon a specific date, the state’s commercial quota has been harvested and no commercial quota is available for landing summer flounder in that state. The Regional Administrator has determined, based upon dealer reports and other available information that, New York has harvested its quota for 2013. Section 648.4(b) provides that Federal permit holders agree, as a condition of the permit, not to land summer flounder in any state that the Regional Administrator has determined no longer has commercial quota available. Therefore, effective 0001 hours, October 1, 2013, landings of summer flounder in New York by vessels holding summer flounder commercial Federal fisheries permits are prohibited for the remainder of the 2013 calendar year, unless additional quota becomes available through a transfer and is announced in the Federal Register. Effective 0001 hours, October 1, 2013, federally permitted dealers are also notified that they may not purchase summer flounder from federally permitted vessels that land in New York for the remainder of the calendar year, or until additional quota becomes available through a transfer from another state. Classification This action is required by 50 CFR part 648 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive prior notice and the opportunity for public comment because it would be PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 contrary to the public interest. This action closes the summer flounder fishery for New York until January 1, 2014, under current regulations. The regulations at § 648.103(b) require such action to ensure that summer flounder vessels do not exceed state quotas. If implementation of this closure was delayed to solicit prior public comment, the quota for this fishing year will be exceeded, thereby undermining the conservation objectives of the Summer Flounder Fishery Management Plan. The AA further finds, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), good cause to waive the thirty (30) day delayed effectiveness period for the reason stated above. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.
