North Pacific Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 73262-73263 [2021-28014]

Download as PDF 73262 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 245 / Monday, December 27, 2021 / Notices We refer to the documents related to the previously issued IHA, which include the Federal Register notice of the issuance of the initial 2021 IHA for the ACOE’s construction work (86 FR 37124), the ACOE’s application, the Federal Register notice of the proposed IHA (86 FR 28768), and all associated references and documents. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Determinations The ACOE will conduct activities as analyzed in the initial 2021 IHA. As described above, the number of authorized takes of the same species and stocks of marine mammals are identical to the numbers that were found to meet the negligible impact and small numbers standards and authorized under the initial IHA and no new information has emerged that would change those findings. The re-issued 2022 IHA includes identical required mitigation, monitoring, and reporting measures as the initial IHA, and there is no new information suggesting that our analysis or findings should change. Based on the information contained here and in the referenced documents, NMFS has determined the following: (1) The required mitigation measures will effect the least practicable impact on marine mammal species or stocks and their habitat; (2) the authorized takes will have a negligible impact on the affected marine mammal species or stocks; (3) the authorized takes represent small numbers of marine mammals relative to the affected stock abundances; and (4) the ACOE’s activities will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on taking for subsistence purposes as no relevant subsistence uses of marine mammals are implicated by this action. National Environmental Policy Act To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and NOAA Administrative Order (NAO) 216–6A, NMFS must review our proposed action with respect to environmental consequences on the human environment. Accordingly, NMFS has determined that the issuance of the IHA qualifies to be categorically excluded from further NEPA review. This action is consistent with categories of activities identified in CE B4 of the Companion Manual for NOAA Administrative Order 216–6A, which do not individually or cumulatively have the potential for significant impacts on the quality of the human environment and for which we have not identified any extraordinary circumstances that would preclude this categorical exclusion. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:11 Dec 23, 2021 Jkt 256001 Endangered Species Act (ESA) Section 7(a)(2) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA: 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) requires that each Federal agency insure that any action it authorizes, funds, or carries out is not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of any endangered or threatened species or result in the destruction or adverse modification of designated critical habitat. To ensure ESA compliance for the issuance of IHAs, NMFS consults internally whenever we propose to authorize take for endangered or threatened species. However, no incidental take of ESAlisted species is authorized or expected to result from this activity. Therefore, NMFS has determined that formal consultation under section 7 of the ESA is not required for this action. Authorization NMFS has issued an IHA to the ACOE for in-water construction activities associated with the specified activity from January 5, 2022 through January 4, 2023. All previously described mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements from the initial 2021 IHA are incorporated. Dated: December 21, 2021.

[FR Doc. 2021–28014 Filed 12–23–21; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–22–P DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Office of the Secretary Limitations on Terms of Consumer Credit Extended to Service Members and Dependents—Military Lending Act Database; Notice of Database Update The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, Department of Defense (DoD). ACTION: Notice of database update. AGENCY: The Department of Defense (the Department) is providing notice to the public of a scheduled change to the Military Lending Act (MLA) Database. This update adds cadets and midshipmen attending Military Service Academies of the Armed Forces, who are covered borrowers under the MLA, to the population of covered borrowers identified in the MLA database, thereby correcting an error in the database’s original development. The MLA applies to consumer credit extended to members of the Armed Forces and their dependents, as enacted by Congress in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013. The MLA statute requires the Secretary of Defense to prescribe regulations to carry out the MLA, and such regulations were published on July 22, 2015. This change to the MLA database is administrative in nature and does not change the current MLA regulation nor does it change the status of the cadets and midshipmen attending the Military Service Academies of the Armed Forces. Therefore, this announcement is not subject to notice and comment rulemaking under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA). DATES: This change to the database will be effective February 1, 2022. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrew Cohen, (703) 692–5286. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MLA statute and regulation applies to consumer credit extended to members of the armed forces and their dependents, otherwise known as a ‘‘covered borrower’’ as enacted by Congress in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013. The MLA statute requires the Secretary of Defense to prescribe regulations to carry out 10 U.S.C. 987. The Secretary khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:11 Dec 23, 2021 Jkt 256001 of Defense prescribed required regulations published in 32 CFR part 232 on July 22, 2015. In prescribing regulations to implement the statute, the Department provided creditors an optional safe harbor provision if they conclusively determined whether credit is offered or extended to a ‘‘covered borrower’’, and thus may be subject to 10 U.S.C. 987 and the requirements of this part, by assessing the status of a consumer in accordance with the regulation. See 32 CFR 232.5. A ‘‘covered borrower’’ is a consumer who, at the time the consumer becomes obligated on a consumer credit transaction or establishes an account for consumer credit, is a ‘‘covered member’’ or a dependent of a covered member. See 32 CFR 323.3. The regulation provides a creditor two methods to conclusively determine whether credit being offered or extended to an individual is a covered borrower for the purpose of the MLA. These methods are: A. The use of the Department’s MLA database. ‘‘[A] creditor may verify the status of a consumer by using information relating to that consumer, if any, obtained directly or indirectly from the database maintained by the Department, available at https:// www.dmdc.osd.mil/mla/welcome.xhtml. A search of the Department’s database requires the entry of the consumer’s last name, date of birth, and Social Security number.’’ See 32 CFR 232.5(b)(2)(i)(A). Or, B. The use of a consumer report from a nationwide consumer reporting agency. ‘‘To determine whether a consumer is a covered borrower, a creditor may verify the status of a consumer by using a statement, code, or similar indicator describing that status, if any, contained in a consumer report obtained from a consumer reporting agency that compiles and maintains files on consumers on a nationwide basis, or a reseller of such a consumer report (as each of those terms is defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C. 1681a) and any implementing regulation (12 CFR part 1022)).’’ See 32 CFR 232.5(b)(2)(ii). While the cadets and midshipmen of the military academies of the armed forces meet the requirement of being a ‘‘member of the armed forces who is serving on—‘‘(i) Active duty pursuant to title 10, title 14, or title 32, United States Code, under a call or order that does not specify a period of 30 days or fewer’’, they are currently not included in the population of the MLA database as they should be. This change remediates that condition. PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73263 Dated: December 20, 2021. Aaron T. Siegel, Alternate OSD Federal Register, Liaison Officer, Department of Defense.
