Background In FR Doc. 2014–18506 of August 22, 2014 (79 FR 50451), there were a number of technical errors that are identified and corrected in the Correction of Errors section below. The provisions in this correction document are effective as if they had been included in the document published on August 22, 2014. Accordingly, the corrections are effective October 1, 2014. II. Summary of Errors On page 50492, in Table 8, we omitted the description of a quality reporting measure ‘‘Providing Support for Religious and Spiritual Beliefs’’. We are adding the omitted measure to the table. On Page 50493, in Table 9, we listed an incorrect deadline for the ‘‘Monthly data collection April–June 2015 (Q2).’’ We inadvertently provided November 1, 2015 as the deadline. We are correcting this error to reflect the correct monthly data collection deadline date of November 11, 2015. IV. Correction of Errors DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE In FR Doc. 2014–18506 of August 22, 2014 (79 FR 50451), make the following corrections: 1. On page 50492, in Table 8— ‘‘Hospice Experience of Care Survey Quality Measures and Their Items’’, after the quality measure description of ‘‘Getting help for Symptoms’’ and before the quality measure description of ‘‘Information Continuity’’ add the following quality measure description to read as follows: Providing Support for Religious and Spiritual Beliefs (Support for religious or spiritual beliefs includes talking, praying, quiet time, or other ways of meeting your religious or spiritual needs.) While your family member was in hospice care, how much support for your religious or spiritual beliefs did you get from the hospice team? 2. On page 50493, in Table 9—Data Submission Dates 2015–1016 For CAHPS® Hospice Survey, under the quarterly data submission deadline column the date ‘‘November 1, 2015’’ is corrected to read ‘‘November 11, 2015’’.

Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking We ordinarily publish a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register to provide a period for public comment before the provisions of a rule take effect in accordance with section 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). However, we can waive this notice and comment procedure if the Secretary finds, for good cause, that the notice and comment process is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, and incorporates a statement of the finding and the reasons therefore in the notice. Section 553(d) of the APA ordinarily requires a 30-day delay in effective date of final rules after the date of their publication in the Federal Register. This 30-day delay in effective date can be waived, however, if an agency finds for good cause that the delay is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, and the agency incorporates a statement of the findings and its reasons in the rule issued. Rulemaking is unnecessary because this notice merely fixes errors and makes no policy changes.

Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Pacific 
Ocean Perch in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Temporary rule; closure.

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

SUMMARY: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific ocean perch 
in the Western Aleutian district (WAI) of the Bering Sea and Aleutian 
Islands management area (BSAI) by vessels participating in the BSAI 
trawl limited access fishery. This action is necessary to prevent 
exceeding the 2015 total allowable catch (TAC) of Pacific ocean perch 
in this area allocated to vessels participating in the BSAI trawl 
limited access fishery.

DATES: Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), April 27, 2015, 
through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steve Whitney, 907-586-7228.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the groundfish fishery in the 
BSAI exclusive economic zone according to the Fishery Management Plan 
for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area 
(FMP) prepared by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council under 
authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Act. Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with 
the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679.
    The 2015 TAC of Pacific ocean perch, in the WAI, allocated to 
vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery was 
established as a directed fishing allowance of 164 metric tons by the 
final 2014 and 2015 harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI 
(79 FR 12108, March 4, 2014).
    In accordance with Sec.  679.20(d)(1)(iii), the Regional 
Administrator finds that this directed fishing allowance has been 
reached. Consequently, NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific 
ocean perch in the WAI by vessels participating in the BSAI trawl 
limited access fishery.

amounts at Sec.  679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip.

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) as such a requirement is impracticable and 
contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and 
contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from 
responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and 
would delay the closure of the Pacific ocean perch directed fishery in 
the WAI for vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access 
fishery. NMFS was unable to publish a notice providing time for public 
comment because the most recent, relevant data only became available as 
of April 24, 2015. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day 
delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). 
This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of 
prior notice and opportunity for public comment.
    This action is required by Sec.  679.20 and is exempt from review 
under Executive Order 12866.

    Authority:  16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.
