Action

Final Rule; Correction.

Summary

This document contains corrections to the final regulations that were published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2007, and are effective March 28, 2007. The published rule amended CFR text that is effective only through March 19, 2007. This correction changes the amendatory instructions in the final rule to accurately reflect effective CFR parts as of March 28, 2007. These changes ensure that the 7-day delay in effectiveness is permanently removed when closing the Hawaii-based shallow-set longline fishery as a result of reaching interaction limits for sea turtles.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

The final rule published on February 26, 2007 (72 FR 8289) and effective March 28, 2007, removes the 7-day delay in effectiveness when closing the Hawaii-based shallow-set longline fishery as a result of reaching interaction limits for sea turtles. It allows for an immediate closure of the fishery to enhance protection of sea turtles.

The amendatory instructions that are the subject of this correction refer to § 665.22 and § 665.33 in the CFR. The amendatory instructions in the published final rule (72 FR 8289) were written to amend CFR text that is effective only through March 19, 2007. This correction makes two changes to the amendatory instructions to accurately reflect effective CFR parts as of March 28, 2007. In the amendatory instruction for § 665.22, “revise” is replaced with “add”. This change is necessary to insert revisions of paragraphs (ss) and (tt) that were effective through March 19, 2007. In amendatory instruction for § 665.33, the phrase, “remove paragraphs (b)(2)(iii) and (iv)”, is removed, since the subject paragraphs will no longer be effective on March 28, 2007.
