Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This action stays and defers Federal sanctions and imposes no additional requirements. Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ and therefore is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001) because it is not a significant regulatory action. The administrator certifies that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). This rule does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4). This rule does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action does not have Federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045, ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. The requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272) do not apply to this rule because it imposes no standards. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:02 Jul 22, 2014 Jkt 232001 This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report to Congress and the Comptroller General. However, section 808 provides that any rule for which the issuing agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, shall take effect at such time as the agency promulgating the rule determines. 5 U.S.C. 808(2). EPA has made such a good cause finding, including the reasons therefore, and established an effective date of July 23, 2014. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This rule is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by September 22, 2014. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the purpose of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements (see section 307(b)(2)).

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are amending the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife (List) by adding several marine taxa, removing one species, and revising the entries of many more in accordance with the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). These amendments are based on previously published determinations by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of Commerce, which has jurisdiction for these species. DATES: This rule is effective July 23, 2014. For the applicability date for the status of newly listed taxa, see the individual species documents referenced in SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Franz, 703–358–2171. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background In accordance with the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and Reorganization Plan No. 4 of 1970 (35 FR 15627; October 6, 1970), NMFS has jurisdiction over the marine and anadromous taxa specified in this rule. Under section 4(a)(2) of the Act, NMFS must decide whether a species under its jurisdiction should be classified as endangered or threatened. NMFS makes these determinations via its rulemaking process. We, the Service, are then responsible for publishing final rules to amend the List in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.11(h). As described below and set forth at the table in the rule portion of this document, NMFS has published rules regarding each of the species mentioned in this rule. Section 4(a)(2)(A) applies to all of the rules except that for the Steller sea lion (Eastern DPS); with respect to those rules, by publishing this final rule, E:\FR\FM\23JYR1.SGM 23JYR1 42688 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 141 / Wednesday, July 23, 2014 / Rules and Regulations mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES we are simply taking the necessary administrative step to codify these changes in the CFR 4(a)(2)(B) applies to the NMFS’s recommendation to delist the Steller sea lion (Eastern DPS); we have concurred with NMFS’s recommendation, and this rule implements that action. In the lists below, DPS stands for distinct population segment, ESU stands for evolutionarily significant unit, and XN stands for nonessential experimental population. Listings We are adding the following 16 species to the List based on NMFS final rules: • Steelhead (Middle Columbia River DPS), designation of nonessential experimental population (XN) (78 FR 2893; January 15, 2013) • Seal, bearded (Beringia DPS), as threatened (77 FR 76740; December 28, 2012) • Seal, bearded (Okhotsk DPS), as threatened (77 FR 76740; December 28, 2012) • Seal, ringed (Arctic subspecies), as threatened (77 FR 76706; December 28, 2012) • Seal, ringed (Baltic subspecies), as threatened (77 FR 76706; December 28, 2012) • Seal, ringed (Ladoga subspecies), as endangered (77 FR 76706; December 28, 2012) • Seal, ringed (Okhotsk subspecies), as threatened (77 FR 76706; December 28, 2012) • Whale, false killer (Main Hawaiian Islands Insular DPS), as endangered (77 FR 70915; November 28, 2012) • Salmon, coho (Central California Coast ESU), reaffirmed as endangered but with range extension (77 FR 19552; April 2, 2012) • Sturgeon, Atlantic (Atlantic subspecies; Carolina DPS), as endangered (77 FR 5914; February 6, 2012) • Sturgeon, Atlantic (Atlantic subspecies; Chesapeake Bay DPS), as endangered (77 FR 5880; February 6, 2012) • Sturgeon, Atlantic (Atlantic subspecies; Gulf of Maine DPS), as threatened (77 FR 5880; February 6, 2012) • Sturgeon, Atlantic (Atlantic subspecies; New York Bight DPS), as endangered (77 FR 5880; February 6, 2012) • Sturgeon, Atlantic (Atlantic subspecies; South Atlantic DPS), as endangered (77 FR 5914; February 6, 2012) • Sawfish, largetooth, as endangered (76 FR 40822; July 12, 2011) VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:02 Jul 22, 2014 Jkt 232001 • Salmon, coho (Oregon Coast ESU), as threatened with critical habitat (76 FR 35755; June 20, 2011) reaffirming listing (73 FR 7816; February 11, 2008) Please note: The Oregon Coast coho salmon ESU was listed on August 10, 1998, as threatened (63 FR 42587), but in 2001, the U.S. District Court in Eugene, Oregon, set aside that listing (Alsea Valley Alliance v. Evans, 161 F. Supp 2d 1154, (D. Or. 2001)). On February 11, 2008, NMFS listed the Oregon Coast coho salmon ESU as threatened, issued protective regulations under section 4(d) of the Act (known as a 4(d) rule), and designated critical habitat (73 FR 7816). As a result of another court challenge (Douglas County v. Balsiger (Civ. No. 08–1547; D. Or. 2008)), NMFS reached a settlement with the litigants and agreed to conduct another status review of the ESU. After conducting the additional status review, NMFS affirmed the status for this ESU by promulgating a rule to supersede its February 11, 2008, listing determination (76 FR 35755; June 20, 2011). Delisting We are removing the following species from the List based on a NMFS final rule: • Sea lion, Steller (Eastern DPS) (78 FR 66140; November 4, 2013) Critical Habitat We are adding critical habitat to the following species based on a NMFS final rule: • Abalone, black (76 FR 66806; October 27, 2011) • Eulachon, Pacific (Southern DPS) (76 FR 65324; October 20, 2011) • Whale, beluga (Cook Inlet DPS) (76 FR 20180; April 11, 2011) Updating We are updating 42 entries on the List by referencing the respective NMFS Lists at 50 CFR 223.102 or 50 CFR 224.101 in the ‘‘Vertebrate population where endangered or threatened’’ column to make it easier for the public to identify and obtain the current descriptions of the following listed marine taxa: • Bocaccio (Puget Sound/Georgia Basin DPS) • Eulachon, Pacific (Southern DPS) • Rockfish, canary (Puget Sound/ Georgia Basin DPS) • Rockfish, yelloweye (Puget Sound/ Georgia Basin DPS) • Salmon, Atlantic (Gulf of Maine DPS) • Salmon, Chinook (California Coastal ESU) • Salmon, Chinook (Central Valley spring-run ESU) PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 • Salmon, Chinook (Lower Columbia River ESU) • Salmon, Chinook (Puget Sound ESU) • Salmon, Chinook (Sacramento River winter-run ESU) • Salmon, Chinook (Snake River fallrun ESU) • Salmon, Chinook (Snake River spring/ summer-run ESU) • Salmon, Chinook (Upper Columbia River spring-run ESU) • Salmon, Chinook (Upper Willamette River ESU) • Salmon, chum (Columbia River ESU) • Salmon, chum (Hood Canal summerrun ESU) • Salmon, coho (Central California Coast ESU) • Salmon, coho (Lower Columbia River ESU) • Salmon, coho (Oregon Coast ESU) • Salmon, coho (Southern Oregon/ Northern California Coast ESU) • Salmon, sockeye (Ozette Lake ESU) • Salmon, sockeye (Snake River ESU) • Sawfish, smalltooth (United States DPS) • Sea lion, Steller (Western DPS) • Sea turtle, green • Sea turtle, olive ridley • Seal, spotted (Southern DPS) • Steelhead (California Central Valley DPS) • Steelhead (Central California Coast DPS) • Steelhead (Lower Columbia River DPS) • Steelhead (Middle Columbia River DPS) • Steelhead (Northern California DPS) • Steelhead (Puget Sound DPS) • Steelhead (Snake River Basin DPS) • Steelhead (South-Central California Coast DPS) • Steelhead (Southern California DPS) • Steelhead (Upper Columbia River DPS) • Steelhead (Upper Willamette River DPS) • Sturgeon, North American green (Southern DPS) • Whale, beluga (Cook Inlet DPS) • Whale, gray (Western North Pacific DPS) • Whale, killer (Southern Resident DPS) Correcting We are updating 53 entries on the List based on NMFS final rules and to make these entries easier to understand for the public. Updates include: corrections to the scientific and common names of species that were either misspelled or omitted in error in previous Federal Register notices; grouping change; corrections to the ‘‘Vertebrate population where endangered or threatened’’ column where previously ‘‘NA’’ was used in error; and, additions E:\FR\FM\23JYR1.SGM 23JYR1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 141 / Wednesday, July 23, 2014 / Rules and Regulations to the ‘‘Special rules’’ column for some marine taxa where previously ‘‘NA’’ was used or the rule was not included.

We also find good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make this rule effective immediately under publication. The NMFS rules extended protection under the Act to these species and listed them in 50 CFR parts 223 and 224 or designated critical habitat under 50 CFR part 226; this rule is an administrative action to add the species to or update their status on the List in 50 CFR 17.11(h). The public PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 42689 would not be served by delaying the effective date of this rulemaking action. Required Determinations National Environmental Policy Act We have determined that an environmental assessment, as defined under the authority of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, need not be prepared in connection with regulations adopted pursuant to section 4(a) of the Act. We outlined our reasons for this determination in the Federal Register on October 25, 1983 (48 FR 49244). Paperwork Reduction Act We have examined this regulation under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and found it to contain no information collection requirements. We may not conduct or sponsor, and you are not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget control number.

As of July 10, 2014, the common pool had caught 17 percent of its sub-annual catch limit (ACL) of Southern New England/MidAtlantic (SNE/MA) winter flounder. To allow the common pool fishery to catch more of its quota for that stock, effective July 23, 2014, the trip limit of SNE/MA winter flounder, defined as winter flounder caught within the Inshore Georges Bank and SNE/MA Broad Stock Areas (as defined in § 648.10(k)(3)(ii) and (iv)), for all common pool vessels, is increased from 1,500 lb (630.4 kg) per day-at-sea (DAS) and 2,000 lb (907.2 kg) per trip, to 3,000 lb (1,361 kg) per DAS and 6,000 lb (2,722 kg) per trip. The regulations also require the RA to close a Trimester Total Allowable Catch (TAC) Area for a stock when 90 percent of the Trimester TAC is projected to be caught. In such cases, the Trimester TAC Area for a stock closes to all common pool vessels fishing with gear capable of catching that stock for the remainder of the trimester.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Marine and 
Anadromous Taxa: Additions, Removal, Updates, and Corrections to the 
List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are amending 
the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife (List) by adding several 
marine taxa, removing one species, and revising the entries of many 
more in accordance with the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended 
(Act). These amendments are based on previously published 
determinations by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) of the 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of 
Commerce, which has jurisdiction for these species.

DATES: This rule is effective July 23, 2014. For the applicability date 
for the status of newly listed taxa, see the individual species 
documents referenced in SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Franz, 703-358-2171.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In accordance with the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and 
Reorganization Plan No. 4 of 1970 (35 FR 15627; October 6, 1970), NMFS 
has jurisdiction over the marine and anadromous taxa specified in this 
rule. Under section 4(a)(2) of the Act, NMFS must decide whether a 
species under its jurisdiction should be classified as endangered or 
threatened. NMFS makes these determinations via its rulemaking process. 
We, the Service, are then responsible for publishing final rules to 
amend the List in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 
17.11(h).
    As described below and set forth at the table in the rule portion 
of this document, NMFS has published rules regarding each of the 
species mentioned in this rule. Section 4(a)(2)(A) applies to all of 
the rules except that for the Steller sea lion (Eastern DPS); with 
respect to those rules, by publishing this final rule,

[[Page 42688]]

we are simply taking the necessary administrative step to codify these 
changes in the CFR 4(a)(2)(B) applies to the NMFS's recommendation to 
delist the Steller sea lion (Eastern DPS); we have concurred with 
NMFS's recommendation, and this rule implements that action. In the 
lists below, DPS stands for distinct population segment, ESU stands for 
evolutionarily significant unit, and XN stands for nonessential 
experimental population.

Listings

    We are adding the following 16 species to the List based on NMFS 
final rules:

 Sawfish, largetooth, as endangered (76 FR 40822; July 12, 
2011)
 Salmon, coho (Oregon Coast ESU), as threatened with critical 
habitat (76 FR 35755; June 20, 2011) reaffirming listing (73 FR 7816; 
February 11, 2008)

    Please note: The Oregon Coast coho salmon ESU was listed on August 
10, 1998, as threatened (63 FR 42587), but in 2001, the U.S. District 
Court in Eugene, Oregon, set aside that listing (Alsea Valley Alliance 
v. Evans, 161 F. Supp 2d 1154, (D. Or. 2001)). On February 11, 2008, 
NMFS listed the Oregon Coast coho salmon ESU as threatened, issued 
protective regulations under section 4(d) of the Act (known as a 4(d) 
rule), and designated critical habitat (73 FR 7816). As a result of 
another court challenge (Douglas County v. Balsiger (Civ. No. 08-1547; 
D. Or. 2008)), NMFS reached a settlement with the litigants and agreed 
to conduct another status review of the ESU. After conducting the 
additional status review, NMFS affirmed the status for this ESU by 
promulgating a rule to supersede its February 11, 2008, listing 
determination (76 FR 35755; June 20, 2011).

Delisting

    We are removing the following species from the List based on a NMFS 
final rule:

Correcting

    We are updating 53 entries on the List based on NMFS final rules 
and to make these entries easier to understand for the public. Updates 
include: corrections to the scientific and common names of species that 
were either misspelled or omitted in error in previous Federal Register 
notices; grouping change; corrections to the ``Vertebrate population 
where endangered or threatened'' column where previously ``NA'' was 
used in error; and, additions

[[Page 42689]]

to the ``Special rules'' column for some marine taxa where previously 
``NA'' was used or the rule was not included. Below are the marine taxa 
for which updates are being applied:

Changes to Common Names

    We are changing the presentation of the common names of the 
following species to conform with the way that NMFS refers to these 
species:

     ``Dolphin, Indus River'' will now appear on the List as 
``Dolphin, South Asian River (Indus River subspecies).''
     ``Eulachon, Pacific (Southern DPS)'' will now appear on 
the List as ``Eulachon (Southern DPS).''
     ``Sea-lion, Steller'' will now appear on the List as ``Sea 
lion, Steller (Western DPS).''
     ``Seal, Saimaa'' will now appear on the List as ``Seal, 
ringed (Saimaa subspecies).''
     ``Sturgeon, Gulf'' will now appear on the List as 
``Sturgeon, Atlantic (Gulf subspecies).''
     ``Sturgeon, North American green (Southern DPS)'' will now 
appear on the List as ``Sturgeon, green (Southern DPS).''
     ``Sturgeon, white'' will now appear on the List as 
``Sturgeon, white (Kootenai River DPS).''

Administrative Procedure Act

    Because NMFS provided a public comment period on each of the 
proposed rules for these taxa, we find good cause that the notice and 
public comment procedures of 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary for this 
action. We also find good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make this 
rule effective immediately under publication. The NMFS rules extended 
protection under the Act to these species and listed them in 50 CFR 
parts 223 and 224 or designated critical habitat under 50 CFR part 226; 
this rule is an administrative action to add the species to or update 
their status on the List in 50 CFR 17.11(h). The public would not be 
served by delaying the effective date of this rulemaking action.

Required Determinations

National Environmental Policy Act

    We have determined that an environmental assessment, as defined 
under the authority of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 
need not be prepared in connection with regulations adopted pursuant to 
section 4(a) of the Act. We outlined our reasons for this determination 
in the Federal Register on October 25, 1983 (48 FR 49244).

Paperwork Reduction Act

    We have examined this regulation under the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 and found it to contain no information collection requirements. 
We may not conduct or sponsor, and you are not required to respond to, 
a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid Office 
of Management and Budget control number.
