Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 106 / Tuesday, June 2, 2020 / Rules and Regulations Number of Respondents and Responses: 500 respondents and 500 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 7 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 154, 254 and 303(r) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Total Annual Burden: 3,500 hours. Total Annual Cost: No Cost. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Although most information collected in FCC Form 183 will be made available for public inspection, the Commission will withhold certain information collected in FCC Form 183 from routine public inspection. Specifically, the Commission will treat certain technical and financial information submitted in FCC Form 183 as confidential and as though the applicant has requested that this information be treated as confidential trade secrets and/or commercial information. In addition, an applicant may use the abbreviated process under 47 CFR 0.459(a)(4) to request confidential treatment of certain financial information contained in its FCC Form 183 application. However, if a request for public inspection for this technical or financial information is made under 47 CFR 0.461, and the applicant has any objections to disclosure, the applicant will be notified and will be required to justify continued confidential treatment of its request. To the extent that a respondent seeks to have other information collected in FCC Form 183 withheld from public inspection, the respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant to 47 CFR 0.459. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: The Commission will use the information collected to determine whether applicants are eligible to participate in the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund auction. On January 30, 2020 the Commission adopted the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund Order, WC Docket Nos. 19–126, 10–90, FCC 20–5 which will commit up to $20.4 billion over the next decade to support up to gigabit speed broadband networks in rural America. The funding will be allocated through a multi-round, reverse, descending clock auction that favors faster services with lower latency and encourages intermodal competition in order to ensure that the greatest possible number of Americans will be connected to the best possible networks, all at a competitive cost. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:47 Jun 01, 2020 Jkt 250001 To implement the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund auction, the Commission adopted new rules for the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, including the adoption of a two-stage application process. For the Connect America Fund Phase II auction, applicants that wanted to qualify to bid in the auction were required to submit the FCC Form 183 short-form application. Because the Connect America Fund Phase II auction has ended, the Commission intends to repurpose the FCC Form 183 for the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund. Any entity that wishes to participate will be required to submit the FCC Form 183 short-form application to demonstrate its qualifications to bid. Accordingly, the Commission revises this collection to indicate that it now intends to collect this information pursuant to § 54.804(a) of the Commission’s rules, replacing § 54.315(a) of the Commission’s rules. 47 CFR 54.315(a), 54.804(a). The Commission also makes several revisions to FCC Form 183, including text changes to reflect the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund. Based on the Commission’s experience with auctions and consistent with the record, this twostage collection of information balances the need to collect information essential to conduct a successful auction with administrative efficiency. Under this information collection, the Commission will collect information that will be used to determine whether an applicant is legally qualified to participate in an auction for Rural Digital Opportunity Fund support. To aid in collecting this information, the Commission will use FCC Form 183, which the public will use to provide the necessary information and certifications. Commission staff will review the information collected on FCC Form 183 as part of the pre-auction process, prior to the start of the auction, and determine whether each applicant satisfies the Commission’s requirements to participate in an auction for Rural Digital Opportunity Fund support. Without the information collected on FCC Form 183, the Commission will not be able to determine if an applicant is legally qualified to participate in the auction and has complied with the various applicable regulatory and statutory auction requirements for such participation. This approach is an appropriate assessment of providers for ensuring serious participation without being unduly burdensome.

The first error is in the text on page 23241, where the rule incorrectly indicates that the barndoor skate possession limit in the wing fishery is increasing to 1,025 lb (465 kg) in Season 2. This is incorrect, as the Season 2 possession limit before this framework was 1,025 lb (465 kg). This line should be corrected to read that the barndoor skate possession limit is increasing to 1,250 lb (567 kg) in Season 2. The second error is also on page 23241, in the table under the subheading ‘‘Table 2—Skate Fishery Possession Limits for Fishing Years 2020 and 2021.’’ In the cell describing the barndoor skate wing weight possession limit for Season 2, the value in pounds (1,250 lb) is correct, but the converted value in kilograms (465 kg) is in error. The kilogram value in this table should be corrected to 567 kg. The correct values were published in the proposed rule (85 FR 6494, February 5, 2020) for this action, and elsewhere in this final rule, including in the regulatory text.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 27, 2020, we published a final rule (85 FR 23240) that 
implemented Framework Adjustment 8 to the Northeast skate fishery, 
including specifications and possession limits for fishing years 2020 
and 2021. This rule published with an error.

Need for Correction

    The Framework 8 final rule outlined the final possession limits for 
the entire skate fishery in the preamble text, in a summary table, and 
in changes to the

[[Page 33580]]

regulatory text. However, within the preamble, there were two 
typographical errors when noting the new skate wing possession limit 
for barndoor skates in Season 2 of the skate wing fishery. The first 
error is in the text on page 23241, where the rule incorrectly 
indicates that the barndoor skate possession limit in the wing fishery 
is increasing to 1,025 lb (465 kg) in Season 2. This is incorrect, as 
the Season 2 possession limit before this framework was 1,025 lb (465 
kg). This line should be corrected to read that the barndoor skate 
possession limit is increasing to 1,250 lb (567 kg) in Season 2.
    The second error is also on page 23241, in the table under the 
subheading ``Table 2--Skate Fishery Possession Limits for Fishing Years 
2020 and 2021.'' In the cell describing the barndoor skate wing weight 
possession limit for Season 2, the value in pounds (1,250 lb) is 
correct, but the converted value in kilograms (465 kg) is in error. The 
kilogram value in this table should be corrected to 567 kg.
    The correct values were published in the proposed rule (85 FR 6494, 
February 5, 2020) for this action, and elsewhere in this final rule, 
including in the regulatory text. Because the errors are not in the 
regulatory text, there is no need for correction to the CFR.

Correction

    In the Federal Register of April 27, 2020, in FR Doc. 2020-07805, 
beginning on page 23240, the following corrections are made:
    1. On page 23241, in the second column, in the second full 
paragraph, ``to 1,025 lb (465 kg) in Season 2'' is corrected to read 
``to 1,250 lb (567 kg) in Season 2.''
    2. On page 23241, table 2 is corrected to read as follows:

Classification

    The NMFS Administrator, Greater Atlantic Region, has determined 
that this action is necessary and consistent with the Northeast Skate 
Complex FMP, other provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and other 
applicable law.
    The NMFS Assistant Administrator finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B) to waive prior notice and an opportunity for public comment 
on this action because the correct information was provided in the 
proposed rule, and the public had an opportunity to comment on it. This 
correcting amendment makes only minor, non-substantive corrections to 
typographical errors that included in the final rule text. It does not 
change operating practices in the fishery. It does not change any 
regulatory text. Therefore notice and comment are unnecessary and would 
be contrary to the public interest. Because this action makes no 
substantive changes and makes minor corrections, it does not constitute 
a substantive rule, and it is not subject to the requirement for a 30-
day delay in effective date in 5 U.S.C. 553(d).
