Download as PDF 4884 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 20 / Thursday, January 30, 2014 / Notices [We] will treat the request to exclude vessels using federally-maintained dredged port entrance channels from the speed restrictions as a petition for rulemaking under the Administrative Procedure Act, though this is not required nor is it NMFS’ normal practice. We plan to issue a Notice in the Federal Register announcing receipt of the petition, along with a concise statement of the request and seek comment on the request. If NMFS decides to proceed with the suggested rulemaking, we will notify the petitioner within 120 days, publish a notice in the Federal Register of our decision to engage in rulemaking in a prompt manner, and thereafter proceed in accordance with the requirements for rulemaking. If NMFS decides not to proceed with the petitioned rulemaking, we will notify the petitioner, provide a brief statement of the grounds for the decision, and publish in the Federal Register a notice of our decision not to proceed with the petitioned action. Therefore, NMFS is issuing this notice to solicit comments and information on all issues related to the petition to exclude federally-maintained dredged entrance channels and pilot boarding areas (and the immediately adjacent waters) for ports from New York to Jacksonville from vessel speed restrictions to protect North Atlantic right whales. Please include scientific or commercial data, studies, or research to support your comments and position, including scientific data or research that supports any pertinent industry or professional standards, or specific examples in support of your comments, to aid NMFS in evaluating the request for rulemaking and in determining what action, if any, is appropriate. We will consider all comments and recommendations in determining whether to engage in the suggested rulemaking and thereafter will proceed as described above. Authority: 5 U.S.C. 551 et seq.
