Agency: Postal Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Postal Regulatory Commission published a document in the Federal Register on June 18, 2013 (78 FR 36434) revising certain Commission rules of practice. That document inadvertently omits the word ``except'' in the introductory text of 39 CFR 3001.7(b). In addition, an amendatory instruction led to the unintended omission of Sec. 3001.7(b)(1) through (b)(5) in the Code of Federal Regulations. This document corrects the final regulations by restoring the omitted elements, consistent with the scope and intent of Order No. 1742.

Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS announces a workshop to solicit input from owners and operators of catcher/processor vessels (C/Ps) and motherships that are required to weigh catch at sea. The workshop concerns proposed changes to equipment and operational requirements for motion compensating scales that weigh catch at sea.

The workshop will be divided into three sections, and each section will focus on how the proposed changes will affect the three groups of vessels described above. The workshop is open to the public, but NMFS is specifically requesting those who are knowledgeable about the operations of the three groups of vessels (described above) to attend.
