Please include the OMB Control Number, 3060–1217, in your correspondence. The Commission will also accept your comments via email at PRA@FCC.GOV.

Synopsis As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3507), the FCC is notifying the public that it received final OMB approval on March 21, 2016, for the information collection requirements contained in the modifications to the Commission’s rules in 47 CFR part 12. Under 5 CFR part 1320, an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a current, valid OMB Control Number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act that does not display a current, valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Number is 3060–1217. The foregoing notice is required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Pub. L. 104–13, October 1, 1995, and 44 U.S.C. 3507. The total annual reporting burdens and costs for the respondents are as follows: OMB Control Number: 3060–1217. OMB Approval Date: March 21, 2016. OMB Expiration Date: March 31, 2019. Title: Ensuring Continuity of 911 Communications Report and Order (PS Docket No. 14–174, FCC 15–98). Form Number: N/A. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities. Number of Respondents and Responses: 570 respondents; 570 responses. Estimated Time per Response: Estimated time per respondent will vary widely by respondent because of differences in their current level of backup power provisioning. Some respondents may not need to expend any resources to comply with the third party disclosure requirement, because VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:09 Apr 06, 2016 Jkt 238001 they are already providing the service. Others may have to build the service from the ground up. And, still others may currently be providing some, but not all of the required disclosure. Consequently, a respondent may spend zero to 70 hours per initial notification. Frequency of Response: Respondents are required to disclose the information to subscribers at the point of sale and annually thereafter. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in sections 1, 4(i), and 251(e)(3) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 151, 154(i), 251(e)(3); section 101 of the NET 911 Improvement Act of 2008, Public Law 110–283, 47 U.S.C. 615a–1; and section 106 of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, Pub. L. 111– 260, 47 U.S.C. 615c. Total Annual Burden: 1,888 hours. Total Annual Cost: No cost. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: An assurance of confidentiality is not offered because this information collection does not require the collection of personally identifiable information (PII) from individuals. Privacy Act: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: For over one hundred years, consumers have trusted that they will hear a dial tone in an emergency even when the power is out. Now, as networks transition away from copper-based, line-powered technology, many are aware of the innovation this transition has spurred in emergency services, but many consumers remain unaware that they must take action to ensure that dial tone’s availability in the event of a commercial power outage. The vital importance of the continuity of 911 communications, and the Commission’s duty to promote safety of life and property through the use of wire and radio communication, favor action to ensure that all consumers understand the risks associated with non-linepowered 911 service, know how to protect themselves from such risks, and have a meaningful opportunity to do so. Accordingly, on August 6, 2015, the Commission adopted the Order to promote continued access to 911 during commercial power outages, by requiring providers of facilities-based, fixed residential voice services that are not line powered to offer subscribers the option to purchase a backup power solution capable of 8 hours of standby power, and within three years, an additional solution capable of 24 hours of backup power. The Order also promotes consumer education and choice by requiring covered providers to PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 20259 disclose to subscribers, information about: (a) Availability of backup power sources; (b) service limitations with and without backup power during a power outage; (c) purchase and replacement options; (d) expected backup power duration; (c) proper usage and storage conditions for the backup power source; (e) subscriber backup power self-testing and monitoring instructions; and (f) backup power warranty details, if any.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Through this action, NMFS is specifying an ACL of 326,000 lb of Deep 7 bottomfish in the MHI for the 2015–16 fishing year. The Council recommended this ACL, based on the best available scientific, commercial, and other information, taking into account the associated risk of overfishing. This ACL is 20,000 lb lower than the ACL set for the 2014–15 fishing year. The MHI Management Subarea is the portion of U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone around the Hawaiian Archipelago lying to the east of 161°20′ W. longitude. The Deep 7 bottomfish consist of onaga (Etelis coruscans), ehu (E. carbunculus), gindai (Pristipomoides zonatus), kalekale (P. sieboldii), opakapaka (P. filamentosus), lehi (Aphareus rutilans), and hapuupuu (Hyporthodus quernus). The MHI bottomfish fishing year started September 1, 2015, and is currently open. NMFS will monitor the fishery, and if the fishery reaches the ACL before August 31, 2016, NMFS will, as an associated accountability VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:09 Apr 06, 2016 Jkt 238001 measure authorized in 50 CFR 665.4(f), close the non-commercial and commercial fisheries for Deep 7 bottomfish in Federal waters through August 31. During a fishery closure for Deep 7 bottomfish, no person may fish for, possess, or sell any of these fish in the MHI. There is no prohibition on fishing for or selling other (non-Deep 7) bottomfish throughout the year. All other management measures continue to apply in the MHI bottomfish fishery.

Changes From the Proposed Specifications Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. There are no changes in the final specifications from the proposed specifications. Classification The Regional Administrator, NMFS PIR, determined that this action is PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 necessary for the conservation and management of MHI Deep 7 bottomfish, and that it is consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and other applicable laws.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Through this action, NMFS is specifying an 
ACL of 326,000 lb of Deep 7 bottomfish in the MHI for the 2015-16 
fishing year. The Council recommended this ACL, based on the best 
available scientific, commercial, and other information, taking into 
account the associated risk of overfishing. This ACL is 20,000 lb lower 
than the ACL set for the 2014-15 fishing year. The MHI Management 
Subarea is the portion of U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone around the 
Hawaiian Archipelago lying to the east of 161[deg]20' W. longitude. The 
Deep 7 bottomfish consist of onaga (Etelis coruscans), ehu (E. 
carbunculus), gindai (Pristipomoides zonatus), kalekale (P. sieboldii), 
opakapaka (P. filamentosus), lehi (Aphareus rutilans), and hapuupuu 
(Hyporthodus quernus).
    The MHI bottomfish fishing year started September 1, 2015, and is 
currently open. NMFS will monitor the fishery, and if the fishery 
reaches the ACL before August 31, 2016, NMFS will, as an associated 
accountability measure authorized in 50 CFR 665.4(f), close the non-
commercial and commercial fisheries for Deep 7 bottomfish in Federal 
waters through August 31. During a fishery closure for Deep 7 
bottomfish, no person may fish for, possess, or sell any of these fish 
in the MHI. There is no prohibition on fishing for or selling other 
(non-Deep 7) bottomfish throughout the year. All other management 
measures continue to apply in the MHI bottomfish fishery.
