Download as PDF pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 6 / Tuesday, January 10, 2017 / Rules and Regulations E. APD Posting and Processing 1. Posting The BLM and the Federal Surface Managing Agency, if other than the BLM, must provide at least 30 days public notice before the BLM may approve an APD or Master Development Plan on a Federal oil and gas lease. Posting is not required for an APD for an Indian oil and gas lease or agreement. The BLM will post information about the APD or Notice of Staking for Federal oil and gas leases to the Internet and in an area of the BLM Field Office having jurisdiction that is readily accessible to the public. Posting to the Internet under this provision will not be required until after March 13, 2017. If the surface is managed by a Federal agency other than the BLM, that agency also is required to post the notice for at least 30 days. This would include the BIA where the surface is held in trust but the mineral estate is federally owned. The posting is for informational purposes only and is not an appealable decision. The purpose of the posting is to give any interested party notification that a Federal approval of mineral operations has been requested. The BLM or the FS will not post confidential information. Reposting of the proposal may be necessary if the posted location of the proposed well is: a. Moved to a different quarter-quarter section; b. Moved more than 660 feet for lands that are not covered by a Public Land Survey; or c. If the BLM or the FS determine that the move is substantial. 2. Processing The timeframes established in this subsection apply to both individual APDs and to the multiple APDs included in Master Development Plans and to leases of Indian minerals as well as leases of Federal minerals. If there is enough information to begin processing the application, the BLM (and the FS if applicable) will process it up to the point that missing information or uncorrected deficiencies render further processing impractical or impossible. a. Within 10 days of receiving an application, the BLM (in consultation with the FS if the application concerns NFS lands) will notify the operator as to whether or not the application is complete. The BLM will request additional information and correction of any material submitted, if necessary, in the 10-day notification. If an onsite inspection has not been performed, the applicant will be notified that the application is not complete. Within 10 days of receiving the application, the BLM, in coordination with the operator and Surface Managing Agency, including the private surface owner in the case of split estate minerals, will schedule a date for the onsite inspection (unless the onsite inspection has already been conducted as part of a Notice of Staking). The onsite inspection will be held as soon as practicable based on participants’ schedules and weather conditions. The operator will be notified at the onsite inspection of any additional deficiencies that are discovered during the inspection. The operator has 45 days after receiving notice from the BLM to provide any VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:51 Jan 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 additional information necessary to complete the APD, or the APD may be returned to the operator. b. Within 30 days after the operator has submitted a complete application, including incorporating any changes that resulted from the onsite inspection, the BLM will: 1. Approve the application, subject to reasonable Conditions of Approval, if the appropriate requirements of the NEPA, National Historic Preservation Act, Endangered Species Act, and other applicable law have been met and, if on NFS lands, the FS has approved the Surface Use Plan of Operations; 2. Notify the operator that it is deferring action on the permit; or 3. Deny the permit if it cannot be approved and the BLM cannot identify any actions that the operator could take that would enable the BLM to issue the permit or the FS to approve the Surface Use Plan of Operations, if applicable. c. The notice of deferral in paragraph (b)(2) of this section must specify: 1. Any action the operator could take that would enable the BLM (in consultation with the FS if applicable) to issue a final decision on the application. The FS will notify the applicant of any action the applicant could take that would enable the FS to issue a final decision on the Surface Use Plan of Operations on NFS lands. Actions may include, but are not limited to, assistance with: (A) Data gathering; and (B) Preparing analyses and documents. 2. If applicable, a list of actions that the BLM or the FS need to take before making a final decision on the application, including appropriate analysis under NEPA or other applicable law and a schedule for completing these actions. d. The operator has 2 years from the date of the notice under paragraph (c)(1) of this section to take the action specified in the notice. If the appropriate analyses required by NEPA, National Historic Preservation Act, Endangered Species Act, and other applicable laws have been completed, the BLM (and the FS if applicable), will make a decision on the permit and the Surface Use Plan of Operations within 10 days of receiving a report from the operator addressing all of the issues or actions specified in the notice under paragraph (c)(1) of this section and certifying that all required actions have been taken. If the operator has not completed the actions specified in the notice within 2 years from the operator’s receipt of the paragraph (c)(1) notice, the BLM will deny the permit. e. For APDs on NFS lands, the decision to approve a Surface Use Plan of Operations or Master Development Plan may be subject to FS appeal procedures. The BLM cannot approve an APD until the appeal of the Surface Use Plan of Operations is resolved. * * * * * I. Waiver From Electronic Submission Requirements The operator may request a waiver from the electronic submission requirement for an APD or Notice of Staking if compliance would cause hardship or the operator is PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2915 unable to file these documents electronically. In the request, the operator must explain the reason(s) that prevent its use of the electronic system, plans for complying with the electronic submission requirement, and a timeframe for compliance. If the request applies to a particular set of APDs or Notices of Staking, then the request must identify the APDs or Notices of Staking to which the waiver applies. The waiver request is subject to BLM approval. If the request does not specify a particular set of APDs or Notices of Staking, then the waiver will apply to all submissions made by the operator during the compliance timeframe included as part of the BLM’s waiver approval. The BLM will not consider an APD or Notice of Staking that the operator did not submit through the electronic system, unless the BLM approves a waiver.

ACTION: Temporary rule; inseason adjustment; request for comments. AGENCY: NMFS is adjusting the 2017 total allowable catch (TAC) amounts for the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) pollock, Atka mackerel, and Pacific cod fisheries. This action is necessary because NMFS has determined these TACs are incorrectly specified, and will ensure the BSAI pollock, Atka mackerel, and Pacific cod TACs are the appropriate amounts based on the best available scientific information. Also, NMFS is announcing the Aleutian Islands Catcher Vessel (CV) Harvest Set-Aside and Bering Sea Trawl CV A-Season Sector Limitation will not be in effect for 2017, and TACs in this inseason adjustment will apply for 2017. This action is consistent with the goals and objectives of the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area. DATES: Effective 1200 hours, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), January 9, 2017, until the effective date of the final 2017 and 2018 harvest specifications for BSAI groundfish, unless otherwise modified or superseded through publication of a notification in the Federal Register.

Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Motor 
Vehicle Operators

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: FMCSA is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal 
Register of December 8, 2016 (81 FR 88732), regarding the establishment 
of new minimum training standards for certain individuals applying for 
their commercial driver's license (CDL) for the first time; an upgrade 
of their CDL (e.g., a Class B CDL holder seeking a Class A CDL); or a 
hazardous materials (H), passenger (P), or school bus (S) endorsement 
for the first time.

DATES: The effective date of this correction is February 6, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Richard Clemente, Driver and 
Carrier Operations (MC-PSD) Division, FMCSA, 1200 New Jersey Ave SE., 
Washington, DC 20590-0001, by telephone at 202-366-4325, or by email at 
MCPSD@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FMCSA makes minor corrections to fix 
errors in the final rule published on December 8, 2016. In instruction 
10, amending Sec.  383.73, the Agency corrects ``(b)(10)'' to read 
``(b)(11)'' in both the instruction and associated regulatory

[[Page 2916]]

text. Additionally in Sec.  383.73, FMCSA changes paragraph ``(e)(8)'' 
to read ``(e)(9)'' in both the instruction and associated regulatory 
text. In instruction 13, amending Part 383, the Agency changes ``Sec.  
384.235'' to read ``Sec.  384.236.'' These changes are required because 
as written, the instruction and associated regulatory text would have 
deleted the recent changes published in the Federal Register on 
December 5, 2016, in the final rule titled ``Commercial Driver's 
License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse'' (Clearinghouse) (81 FR 87686, 
RIN 2126-AB18, Docket No. FMCSA-2011-0031). FMCSA makes these 
corrections in this document to ensure the original language in the 
Clearinghouse final rule remains in effect.
