FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Census Bureau’s procedures for outreach, notice and consultation ensure involvement of tribes, to the extent practicable and permitted by law, before making decisions or implementing policies, rules, or programs that affect federally recognized tribal governments. These meetings are open to citizens of federally recognized tribes by invitation. The Census Bureau’s Decennial Directorate and the Intergovernmental Affairs Office is responsible for the development and implementation of outreach and promotion activities to assist in obtaining a complete and accurate census count in 2020 among all residents including the American Indian and Alaska Native populations. This program is one part of the overall outreach and promotion efforts directed at building awareness about the importance of the census and motivating response to the 2020 Census in communities all across the country. In accordance with Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, issued November 6, 2000, the Census Bureau is adhering to its tribal consultation policy by seeking the input of tribal governments in the planning and implementation of the 2020 Census with the goal of ensuring the most accurate counts and data for the American Indian and Alaska Native population. In that regard, we are seeking comments to the following operational topics: 1. 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance System (DAS) 2. 2020 Census data products for the American Indian and Alaska Native population The Census Bureau is transitioning to a new Disclosure Avoidance System (DAS) to protect information provided 44601 by respondents on the 2020 Census. The DAS is a new, advanced, and more powerful confidentiality protection system than the Census Bureau has previously used. The DAS employs a rigorous mathematical process to protect respondents’ information and identity. The Census Bureau is fully committed to publishing detailed race and ethnicity data from the 2020 Census, including detailed data on the American Indian and Alaska Native populations. These products will be available in a format that uses the detailed self-reported data, including the option for respondents to report as many race categories as apply. The geographic specificity will be limited to areas that meet certain, still to be determined, minimum population standards, as they have in the past. The Census Bureau also will apply the new 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance System to all data products. Through the webinar and tribal consultation sessions, Census Bureau staff will provide tribal communities with further details on the Census Bureau’s plans to modernize its disclosure avoidance methodology for the 2020 Census and potential changes to the 2020 Census data products.

Endangered and Threatened Species; Take of Anadromous Fish

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

ACTION: Notice; Determination on a Tribal Resource Management Plan.

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

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that NMFS has made a determination on 
the Nez Perce Tribe's Tribal Resource Management Plan (TRMP), pursuant 
to the protective regulations promulgated for Pacific salmon and 
steelhead under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The TRMP specifies 
the implementation of fisheries targeting steelhead in the Snake River 
Basin.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charlene Hurst, at phone number: (503) 
230-5409, or via email: [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Species Covered in This Notice

    Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha): threatened, naturally 
produced and artificially propagated Snake River Spring/Summer and 
Snake River Fall.
    Steelhead (O. mykiss): threatened, naturally produced and 
artificially propagated Snake River Basin.
    Sockeye salmon (O. nerka): endangered, naturally produced and 
artificially propagated Snake River.

Background

    The Nez Perce Tribe TRMP describes fisheries targeting adult 
steelhead within the Snake River Basin. This plan

[[Page 44602]]

was submitted to NMFS in November of 2018 under the ESA Tribal 4(d) 
Rule, and describes timing, location, harvest impact limits, and gear. 
A variety of monitoring and evaluation is included in the TRMP. As 
required, NMFS took public comments on its recommended determination 
for how the plan addresses the criteria in Sec.  223.203(b)(4) prior to 
making its final determination.

Discussion of the Biological Analysis Underlying the Determination

    The TRMP defines maximum impact rates for natural-origin steelhead 
specific to each major population group within the Snake River 
Steelhead Distinct Population Segment. These maximum impact rates are 
part of a basin-wide framework with which all fishery managers have 
agreed to coordinate so that impacts do not exceed these maximums. 
Furthermore, if abundances fall below a major population group-specific 
Critical Abundance Threshold, management actions (e.g., time-area 
closures) will be taken to reduce impacts.
    NMFS has analyzed the effects of the TRMP on ESA-listed salmon and 
steelhead species and has concluded that the TRMP would not appreciable 
reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery of ESA-listed species, 
while providing for the proposed tribal treaty harvest opportunities. 
Our determination depends upon implementation of all of the monitoring, 
evaluation, reporting tasks or assignments, and enforcement activities 
included in the TRMP. Reporting and inclusion of new information 
derived from research, monitoring, and evaluation activities described 
in the plan provide assurance that performance standards will be 
achieved in future seasons.

Summary of Comments Received in the Response to the Proposed Evaluation 
and Pending Determination

    NMFS published notice of its Proposed Evaluation and Pending 
Determination (PEPD) on the plan for public review and comment on May 
7, 2019 (84 FR 19904), as required by the Tribal 4(d) Rule. The PEPD 
was available for public review and comment for 30 days. No comments 
were received.
