The central feature of this program is the Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR part 541. The standard specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles. NHTSA obtains, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely theft data, and publishes the data for review and comment in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4). This document reports the preliminary theft data for CY 2014, the most recent calendar year for which data are available. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 64405 In calculating the 2014 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same procedures it has used since publication of the MY/ CY 1983/1984 theft rate data (50 FR 46669, November 12, 1985). The MY/CY 2014 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2014 vehicles of that line stolen during calendar year 2014 by the total number of vehicles in that line manufactured for MY 2014, as reported to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As in all previous reports, NHTSA’s data were based on information provided to NHTSA by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a government system that receives vehicle theft information from approximately 23,000 criminal justice agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of self-insured and uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data sources. The preliminary MY/CY 2014 theft data show a decrease in the vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in MY/CY 2013 (For 2013 theft data, see 80 FR 72929 November 23, 2015). The preliminary theft rate for MY 2014 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2014 decreased to 1.1525 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, a decrease of 0.32 percent from the rate of 1.1562 thefts per thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2013 vehicles stolen in CY 2013. For MY 2014 vehicles, out of a total of 236 vehicle lines, five lines had a theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the median theft rate established for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 1994). Of the five vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, four are passenger car lines, one is a multipurpose passenger vehicle line, and none are light-duty truck lines. The data presented in this publication reflect a slight decrease in the overall vehicle theft rate for MY/CY 2014 which is consistent with the general theft rate trend over the past several years.

ACTION: 12-Month petition finding; proposed rule. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce a 12-month finding on a petition to list the iiwi (Drepanis coccinea), a bird species from the Hawaiian Islands, as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (Act). After review of all best available scientific and commercial information, we find that listing the iiwi as a threatened species under the Act is warranted. Accordingly, we propose to list the iiwi as a threatened species throughout its range. If we finalize this rule as proposed, it would extend the Act’s protections to this species. The effect of this regulation will be to add this species to the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. DATES: We will accept comments received or postmarked on or before November 21, 2016. Comments submitted electronically using the Federal eRulemaking Portal (see ADDRESSES below) must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the closing date.

Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 800–877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document consists of: (1) A 12-month petition finding that listing the iiwi under the Act is warranted; and (2) a proposed rule to list the iiwi as a threatened species under the Act. Executive Summary Why we need to publish a rule. Under the Endangered Species Act, 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq., a species or subspecies may warrant protection through listing if it is endangered or threatened throughout all or a significant portion of its range. Critical habitat shall be designated, to the maximum extent prudent and determinable, for any species determined to be an endangered or threatened species under the Act. We are proposing to list the iiwi (Drepanis coccinea) as threatened under the Act because of current and future threats, and listing can only be done by issuing a rule. The iiwi no longer occurs across much of its historical range, and faces a variety of threats in the form of diseases and impacts to its remaining habitat. Delineation of critical habitat requires, within the geographical area occupied by the species, identification of the physical or biological features essential to the species’ conservation. A careful assessment of the biological needs of the species and the areas that may have the physical or biological features essential for the conservation of the species and that may require special management considerations or protections, and thus qualify for designation as critical habitat, is particularly complicated in this case by PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 the ongoing and projected effects of climate change and will require a thorough assessment. We require additional time to analyze the best available scientific data in order to identify specific areas appropriate for critical habitat designation and to analyze the impacts of designating such areas as critical habitat. Accordingly, we find designation of critical habitat for the iiwi to be ‘‘not determinable’’ at this time. What this document does. This document proposes the listing of the iiwi as a threatened species. We previously published a 90-day finding for the iiwi, and this document includes a 12-month finding and proposed listing rule, which assesses all available information regarding status of and threats to the iiwi. The basis for our action. Under the Act, we can determine that a species is an endangered or threatened species based on any of five factors: (A) The present or threatened destruction, modification, or curtailment of its habitat or range; (B) Overutilization for commercial, recreational, scientific, or educational purposes; (C) Disease or predation; (D) The inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms; or (E) Other natural or manmade factors affecting its continued existence. We have determined that the primary threats to the iiwi are its susceptibility to avian malaria (Factor C) and the expected reduction in disease-free habitat as a result of increased temperatures caused by climate change (Factor E). Although not identified as primary threat factors, rapid ohia death, a disease that affects the tree species required by iiwi for nesting and foraging, and impacts from nonnative invasive plants and feral ungulates, contribute to the degradation and curtailment of the iiwi’s remaining, disease-free native ohia forest habitat, exacerbating threats to the species’ viability. We will seek peer review. We will seek comments from independent specialists to ensure that our designation is based on scientifically sound data, assumptions, and analyses. We will invite these peer reviewers to comment on our listing proposal. Because we will consider all comments and information received during the comment period, our final determination may differ from this proposal. A species status report for the iiwi was prepared by a team of Service biologists, with the assistance of scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Pacific Islands Ecosystems Research Center and the Service’s Pacific Islands Climate Change E:\FR\FM\20SEP1.SGM 20SEP1

SUMMARY: This document requests comments on data about passenger motor 
vehicle thefts that occurred in calendar year (CY) 2014, including 
theft rates for existing passenger motor vehicle lines manufactured in 
model year (MY) 2014. The preliminary theft data indicate that the 
vehicle theft rate for MY/CY 2014 vehicles (1.1525 thefts per thousand 
vehicles) decreased by 0.32 percent from the theft rate for MY/CY 2013 
vehicles (1.1562 thefts per thousand vehicles).
    Publication of these data fulfills NHTSA's statutory obligation to 
periodically obtain accurate and timely theft data, and publish the 
information for review and comment.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Mazyck, Office of 
International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 1200 
New Jersey Avenue SE., NRM-310, Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck's 
telephone number is (202) 366-4139. Her fax number is (202) 493-2990.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA administers a program for reducing 
motor vehicle theft. The central feature of this program is the Federal 
Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR part 541. The standard 
specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle 
identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and 
replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles.
    NHTSA obtains, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely 
theft data, and publishes the data for review and comment in accordance 
with 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4). This document reports the preliminary theft 
data for CY 2014, the most recent calendar year for which data are 
available.
    In calculating the 2014 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same 
procedures it has used since publication of the MY/CY 1983/1984 theft 
rate data (50 FR 46669, November 12, 1985). The MY/CY 2014 theft rate 
for each vehicle line was calculated by dividing the number of reported 
thefts of MY 2014 vehicles of that line stolen during calendar year 
2014 by the total number of vehicles in that line manufactured for MY 
2014, as reported to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As in 
all previous reports, NHTSA's data were based on information provided 
to NHTSA by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a government system that receives 
vehicle theft information from approximately 23,000 criminal justice 
agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United 
States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of self-insured and 
uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data 
sources.
    The preliminary MY/CY 2014 theft data show a decrease in the 
vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in MY/CY 
2013 (For 2013 theft data, see 80 FR 72929 November 23, 2015). The 
preliminary theft rate for MY 2014 passenger vehicles stolen in 
calendar year 2014 decreased to 1.1525 thefts per thousand vehicles 
produced, a decrease of 0.32 percent from the rate of 1.1562 thefts per 
thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2013 vehicles stolen in CY 2013. 
For MY 2014 vehicles, out of a total of 236 vehicle lines, five lines 
had a theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the median 
theft rate established for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 
1994). Of the five vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 
four are passenger car lines, one is a multipurpose passenger vehicle 
line, and none are light-duty truck lines.
    The data presented in this publication reflect a slight decrease in 
the overall vehicle theft rate for MY/CY 2014 which is consistent with 
the general theft rate trend over the past several years.
