Fisheries of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and South Atlantic; Reef Fish Fishery of the Gulf of Mexico; Modifications to the Number of Unrigged Hooks Carried On Board Bottom Longline Vessels
Document Number: 2017-23460
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS proposes to implement management measures described in an abbreviated framework action to the Fishery Management Plan for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico (FMP), as prepared by the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) Fishery Management Council (Council). This proposed rule would remove the limit on the number of unrigged hooks that a commercial reef fish vessel with a bottom longline endorsement is allowed on board when using or carrying bottom longline gear in the Federal waters of the eastern Gulf. The proposed rule would not change the limit of 750 hooks that these vessels can have rigged for fishing at any given time. The purpose of the proposed rule is to reduce the regulatory and potential economic burden to bottom longline fishers.

Pacific Island Fisheries; 2017 Annual Catch Limits and Accountability Measures
Document Number: 2017-23457
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS proposes annual catch limits (ACLs) for Pacific Island crustacean, precious coral, and territorial bottomfish fisheries, and accountability measures (AMs) to correct or mitigate any overages of catch limits. The proposed ACLs and AMs would be effective for fishing year 2017. The proposed ACLs and AMs support the long-term sustainability of fishery resources of the U.S. Pacific Islands.
Magnuson-Stevens Act Provisions; Fisheries Off West Coast States; Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery; Pacific Whiting; Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan; Amendment 21-3; Trawl Rationalization Program
Document Number: 2017-23456
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS proposes this interim measure to change the management of the Pacific whiting at-sea sectors' (i.e., the Mothership (MS) and Catcher/Processor (C/P) sectors) allocations for darkblotched rockfish and Pacific ocean perch (POP) by managing the allocations as set-asides rather than as total catch limits. This rule also proposes regulations in accordance with Amendment 21-3 to the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan (PCGFMP) (see electronic access under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION). The proposed action would revise regulations so that higher than anticipated harvest of darkblotched rockfish or POP that exceeds a sector's initial distribution of those species would not require automatic closure of one or more of the Pacific whiting at-sea sectors. This action is intended to reduce the risk of those sectors not attaining their respective Pacific whiting allocations based on the incidental catch of darkblotched rockfish or POP, when allowing the sector(s) to remain open would not exceed their respective annual catch limit (ACLs). This action would not change or increase the risk of exceeding darkblotched rockfish or POP ACL, as the proposed rule would also allow NMFS to close one or both of the MS and C/P sectors via automatic action if the species-specific set-aside amounts plus the available reserve for unforeseen catch events, known colloquially as the ``buffer,'' are anticipated to be exceeded.

Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region; Temporary Measures To Reduce Overfishing of Golden Tilefish
Document Number: 2017-23453
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
This proposed temporary rule would implement interim measures to reduce overfishing of golden tilefish in Federal waters of the South Atlantic. Beginning in 2018, this temporary rule would reduce the total annual catch limit (ACL), the commercial and recreational sector ACLs, and the quotas for the hook-and-line and longline components of the commercial sector. This proposed temporary rule would be effective for 180 days, although NMFS may extend the temporary rule's effectiveness for a maximum of an additional 186 days. The intended effect of this proposed temporary rule is to reduce overfishing of golden tilefish while the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council develops long-term management measures.

Supervisory Review Committee; Procedures for Appealing Material Supervisory Determinations
Document Number: 2017-23213
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (Board) is adopting regulatory procedures for appealing material supervisory determinations to the NCUA's Supervisory Review Committee (SRC). These procedures significantly expand the number of material supervisory determinations appealable to the SRC to include most agency decisions that could significantly affect capital, earnings, operating flexibility, or the nature or level of supervisory oversight of a federally insured credit union (FICU). Furthermore, the procedures contain a number of safeguards designed to provide FICUs with enhanced due process and promote greater consistency with the practices of the Federal banking agencies.
Capital Planning and Supervisory Stress Testing
Document Number: 2017-23212
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (``Board'') proposes to amend its regulations regarding capital planning and stress testing for federally insured credit unions with $10 billion or more in assets (covered credit unions). The proposal would reduce regulatory burden by removing some of the capital planning and stress testing requirements currently applicable to certain covered credit unions. The proposal would also make the NCUA's capital planning and stress testing requirements more efficient for covered credit unions and the NCUA by, among other things, authorizing credit unions to conduct their own stress tests in accordance with the NCUA's requirements and allowing those credit unions to incorporate the stress test results into their capital plan submissions.
Appeals Procedures
Document Number: 2017-23211
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (Board) is adopting this final rule to establish procedures to govern appeals to the Board. The rule establishes a uniform procedure that will apply to agency regulations that currently have their own embedded appeals provisions. Accordingly, this final rule will replace those current provisions. The procedures will apply in cases in which a decision rendered by a regional director or other program office director is subject to appeal to the Board. The procedures will result in greater efficiency, consistency, and a better understanding of the way in which matters under covered regulations may be appealed to the Board.
Restrictions on Qualified Financial Contracts of Certain FDIC-Supervised Institutions; Revisions to the Definition of Qualifying Master Netting Agreement and Related Definitions
Document Number: 2017-21951
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-30
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The FDIC is adding regulations to improve the resolvability of systemically important U.S. banking organizations and systemically important foreign banking organizations and enhance the resilience and the safety and soundness of certain State savings associations and State-chartered banks that are not members of the Federal Reserve System (``State non-member banks'' or ``SNMBs'') for which the FDIC is the primary Federal regulator (together, ``FSIs'' or ``FDIC-supervised institutions''). This final rule requires that FSIs and their subsidiaries (``covered FSIs'') ensure that covered qualified financial contracts (QFCs) to which they are a party provide that any default rights and restrictions on the transfer of the QFCs are limited to the same extent as they would be under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act). In addition, covered FSIs are generally prohibited from being party to QFCs that would allow a QFC counterparty to exercise default rights against the covered FSI based on the entry into a resolution proceeding under the FDI Act, or any other resolution proceeding of an affiliate of the covered FSI. The final rule also amends the definition of ``qualifying master netting agreement'' in the FDIC's capital and liquidity rules, and certain related terms in the FDIC's capital rules. These amendments are intended to ensure that the regulatory capital and liquidity treatment of QFCs to which a covered FSI is party would not be affected by the restrictions on such QFCs.

Magnuson-Stevens Act Provisions; General Provisions for Domestic Fisheries; Application for Exempted Fishing Permits
Document Number: 2017-23441
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-10-27
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Greater Atlantic Region, NMFS (Assistant Regional Administrator), has made a preliminary determination that an exempted fishing permit application contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration. This permit would allow Coonamessett Farm Foundation to test the selectivity of alternate gillnet configurations for targeting haddock on Georges Bank while reducing catch of other groundfish species. Up to five commercial fishing vessels would target haddock using alternate gillnet gears on Georges Bank, including Closed Area I, and temporarily retain undersized catch for measurement and data collection. Regulations under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed exempted fishing permits.
