SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Need for Additional Hearing On July 12, 2019, NMFS published a proposed rule in the Federal Register (84 FR 33205) that would adjust regulatory measures put in place to reduce bluefin tuna bycatch in the pelagic longline fishery for Atlantic highly migratory species (HMS). Specifically, the proposed measures address the Northeastern United States Closed Area, the Cape Hatteras Gear Restricted Area, and the Spring Gulf of Mexico Gear Restricted Area as well as the weak hook requirement in the Gulf of Mexico. In the proposed rule, NMFS scheduled a hearing in Gloucester, MA on July 16, 2019. Recently, NMFS has received feedback from the public that there was not a sufficient amount of time (i.e., three business days) between publication of the proposed rule and the date of the public hearing in Gloucester, MA for news of the hearing to be shared across information networks to interested constituents. Therefore, NMFS is scheduling this additional hearing (see ADDRESSES) in Gloucester, MA to gather additional comment from the affected public in this area.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Addition On 5/17/2019, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice of proposed addition to the Procurement List. The Commission received a public comment from counsel for the current contractor, citing impact on one employee who currently performs this work, lack of experience, and safety concerns for people with severe disabilities as the reasons for his client’s objection to the Commission’s action. The counsel asked the Commission to delay the addition of the service to the Procurement List until he and his client can address the Commission in person. For the reasons described below, the Commission has determined that the proposed Waste Management Services are suitable to be added to the Procurement List. The mission of the AbilityOne Program is to create employment opportunities for people who are blind or severely disabled through the Federal procurement system. In the process of adding products or services to the Program, the Commission is required to perform an impact analysis on the current contractor, which was accomplished with a finding of no severe adverse impact. In accordance with 41 CFR 51–2.4(a)(4), the impact analysis focused on the company, rather than a specific individual. Further, if the project is not added to the AbilityOne Program, the current contractor will have to re-compete for a new contract, with no guarantee of a winning bid. For 23 years, the nonprofit agency proposed to perform the work, CW Resources, Inc. (CWR), has successfully provided similar trash hauling services for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. This past performance is geographically relevant, as it is also located in New London, CT, making CWR familiar with waste management processes in this area. In addition, CWR is well established in the janitorial line of business, and performs on 46 Procurement List projects that are either purely janitorial/custodial projects or have a custodial component (e.g., PL# 20145065, Janitorial, Grounds and Refuse Collection, U.S. Air Force, Arnold Air Force Base, TN.) Regarding the safety of individuals with significant disabilities, CWR has identified direct labor positions and tasks that can be safely performed by people with significant disabilities.
