Download as PDF 71312 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 231 / Tuesday, December 2, 2014 / Rules and Regulations SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by updating the airport name and geographic coordinates of Apalachicola Regional Airport, formerly Apalachicola Municipal Airport, Apalachicola, FL. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the surrounding controlled airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends controlled airspace in Apalachicola, FL. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: NMFS issues a final rule to implement the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) Trawl Economic Data Report Program to evaluate the economic effects of current and potential future fishery management measures for the GOA trawl fisheries. This data collection program will provide the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) and NMFS with baseline economic information on harvesters, crew, processors, and communities active in the GOA trawl fisheries, which will be used to assess the impacts of anticipated future GOA trawl groundfish management measures on stakeholders. The data collected for this program will be submitted by owners and leaseholders of GOA trawl vessels, owners and leaseholders of processors receiving deliveries from those trawl vessels, and owners and leaseholders of trawl catcher/processors. The types of data collected will include, but not be limited to, labor data, revenues, capital and operational expenses, and other operational or financial data. This action is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska, and other applicable laws.

Written comments regarding the burden-hour estimates or other aspects of the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Jeff Hartman, 907–586–7228 Sfmt 4700 NMFS manages the groundfish fisheries in the exclusive economic zone of the GOA and Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area under the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska and the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (collectively, the FMPs). The Council prepared these FMPs under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Regulations implementing the FMPs appear at 50 CFR part 679. General regulations governing U.S. fisheries also appear at 50 CFR part 600. This final rule implements the Gulf of Alaska Trawl Economic Data Report Program to collect baseline economic data on the GOA trawl groundfish fishery. The data will help the Council and NMFS to evaluate the effect of a prospective GOA trawl catch share management program on harvesters, processors, and communities. The program will collect data annually from January 1, 2015, onward and require that participants submit the data in an economic data report (EDR). The program will minimize the economic data reporting burden by only collecting reliable, relevant data that NMFS cannot obtain from existing data collections. The Council is considering new management measures so participants in the GOA trawl fisheries can efficiently reduce prohibited species catch (PSC). One of the management measures the Council is considering for the GOA groundfish trawl fishery is a catch share program. A catch share program allocates exclusive harvest privileges for certain groundfish or shellfish species to specific fishery participants. An exclusive harvest privilege allows fishery participants to tailor their fishing operations, such as choosing when to fish, with their available groundfish or other species allocation. This contrasts with open access programs, where participants engage in a ‘‘race for fish’’ with other fishery participants seeking to maximize their harvest before the total allowable catch is reached.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by removing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Halifax County Airport, Roanoke Rapids, NC. The 
airport has been abandoned, therefore, no longer requires controlled 
airspace. This is an administrative change and does not affect the 
boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the surrounding 
controlled airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' 
under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 
1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation 
as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
