(a)(1) This part is not applicable to recipients providing services in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, or the Republic of the Marshall Islands. (2) All citizens of the Republic of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands residing in the United States are eligible to receive legal assistance provided that they are otherwise eligible under the Act. (b) All Canadian-born American Indians at least 50% Indian by blood are eligible to receive legal assistance provided they are otherwise eligible under the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a final rule that published March 17, 2014 (79 FR 14809), we amended the refugespecific regulations for certain refuges that pertain to migratory game bird hunting, upland game hunting, big game hunting, and sport fishing for the 2013– 2014 season. The Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Colorado is one of the refuges for which we published amended regulations. In the final rule, we inadvertently required that hunters may only use shotguns as the legal method of take for migratory game birds and upland game on Arapaho NWR. This requirement is inconsistent with Colorado State regulations, which allow take by both shotgun and falconry. Therefore, we are correcting the regulations for Arapaho NWR to provide that take of migratory game birds and upland game must comply with State regulations.

ACTION: Temporary rule; reopening. AGENCY: NMFS reopens commercial penaeid shrimp trawling, i.e., for brown, pink, and white shrimp, in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off South Carolina in the South Atlantic. NMFS previously closed commercial penaeid shrimp trawling in the EEZ off South Carolina on February 13, 2014. The reopening is intended to maximize harvest benefits while protecting the penaeid shrimp resource. SUMMARY: The reopening is effective at 12:01 a.m., local time, May 1, 2014, until the effective date of a notification of a closure which will be published in the Federal Register. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kate Michie, 727–824–5305; email: Kate.Michie@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Penaeid shrimp in the South Atlantic are managed under the Fishery Management Plan for the Shrimp Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (FMP). The FMP was prepared by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) and is implemented pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES DATES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:13 Apr 17, 2014 Jkt 232001 under the authority of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) by regulations at 50 CFR part 622. Under 50 CFR 622.206(a), NMFS may close the EEZ adjacent to South Atlantic states that have closed their waters to the harvest of brown, pink, and white shrimp to protect the white shrimp spawning stock that has been severely depleted by cold weather or when applicable state water temperatures are 9 °C (48 °F), or less, for at least 7 consecutive days. Consistent with those procedures and criteria, after determining that unusually cold temperatures resulted in water temperatures of 9 °C (48 °F), or less, for at least 7 consecutive days in its state waters, the state of South Carolina closed its waters on January 13, 2014, to the harvest of brown, pink, and white shrimp. South Carolina subsequently requested that NMFS implement a concurrent closure of the EEZ off South Carolina. NMFS determined that South Carolina’s request for an EEZ closure conformed with the procedures and criteria specified in the FMP and the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and, therefore, implemented the concurrent EEZ closure effective as of February 13, 2014, and that in no case would the EEZ closure remain in effect after May 31, 2014 (79 FR 8635, February 13, 2014). During the closure, as specified in 50 CFR 622.206(a)(2), no person could: (1) Trawl for brown, pink, or white shrimp in the EEZ off South Carolina; (2) possess on board a fishing vessel brown, pink, or white shrimp in or from the EEZ off South Carolina unless the vessel is in transit through the area and all nets with a mesh size of less than 4 inches (10.2 cm) are stowed below deck; or (3) for a vessel trawling within 25 nautical miles of the baseline from which the territorial sea is measured, use or have on board a trawl net with a mesh size less than 4 inches (10.2 cm), as measured between the centers of opposite knots when pulled taut. The FMP and implementing regulations at 50 CFR 622.206(a) state that: (1) The closure will be effective until the ending date of the closure in the state waters, but may be ended earlier based on the state’s request; and (2) if the state closure is ended earlier, NMFS will terminate the closure of the EEZ by filing a notification to that effect with the Office of the Federal Register. PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 21875 On April 7, 2014, the state of South Carolina requested the EEZ to be reopened no later than May 1, 2014, based on their biological sampling. The state of South Carolina is continuing its monitoring of both water conditions and the penaeid shrimp population in state waters but has not yet determined when the state waters reopening will occur. Therefore, NMFS publishes this notification to reopen the EEZ off South Carolina to the harvest of brown, pink, and white shrimp effective 12:01 a.m., local time, May 1, 2014. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA, (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Allowing prior notice and opportunity for public comment on the reopening is unnecessary because the rule establishing the reopening procedures has already been subject to notice and comment, and all that remains is to notify the public of the reopening date. Additionally, allowing for prior notice and opportunity for public comment for this reopening is contrary to the public interest because it requires time, thus delaying the removal of a restriction and thereby reducing socio-economic benefits to the commercial sector. Also, the FMP procedures and implementing regulations require the commercial penaeid shrimp trawling component to reopen no later than May 31, 2014, or earlier based on the state’s request, which South Carolina requested to be May 1, 2014. For the aforementioned reasons, the AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This action is authorized by 50 CFR 622.206(a) and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: April 15, 2014. Emily H. Menashes, Acting Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc. 2014–08885 Filed 4–17–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–22–P E:\FR\FM\18APR1.SGM 18APR1

2013-2014 Refuge-Specific Hunting and Sport Fishing Regulations; 
Correction

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, published a final rule 
in the Federal Register on March 17, 2014, to amend the refuge-specific 
regulations for certain refuges that pertain to migratory game bird 
hunting, upland game hunting, big game hunting, and sport fishing for 
the 2013-2014 season. Inadvertently, we made two technical errors in 
our regulatory text for Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado. 
This action makes the necessary corrections to the regulations for that 
refuge.

DATES: This correction is effective April 18, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brian Salem, (703) 358-2397.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a final rule that published March 17, 
2014 (79 FR 14809), we amended the refuge-specific regulations for 
certain refuges that pertain to migratory game bird hunting, upland 
game hunting, big game hunting, and sport fishing for the 2013-2014 
season. The Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Colorado is one 
of the refuges for which we published amended regulations. In the final 
rule, we inadvertently required that hunters may only use shotguns as 
the legal method of take for migratory game birds and upland game on 
Arapaho NWR. This requirement is inconsistent with Colorado State 
regulations, which allow take by both shotgun and falconry. Therefore, 
we are correcting the regulations for Arapaho NWR to provide that take 
of migratory game birds and upland game must comply with State 
regulations.
