Fish and Wildlife Service January 28, 2015 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Endangered and Threatened Species Permit Applications; Correction
Document Number: 2015-01662
Type: Notice
Date: 2015-01-28
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, correct a typographical error in a recently published notice that announced our receipt of applications. Due to the inadvertent typographical error, the prior notice mischaracterized the area of translocation for a species for which the applicant seeks a permit. The error is not in the application materials, but only in one section of our previous Federal Register notice. If you requested documents for review, you need not request them again.
Subsistence Management Regulations for Public Lands in Alaska; Rural Determination Process
Document Number: 2015-01621
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-01-28
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
The Secretaries propose to revise the regulations governing the rural determination process for the Federal Subsistence Program in Alaska. Under current regulations, the Federal Subsistence Board (Board) defines which community or area of Alaska is rural using guidelines and characteristics defined by the Secretaries. This new process will enable the Board to be more flexible in making decisions and take into account the regional differences found throughout the State.
