Federal Register Highlights – 6/24/15

June 24, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for June 24, 2015:

PROPOSED RULE: The FTC proposes to amend the Privacy of Consumer Financial Information Rule (Privacy Rule or Rule), which among other things requires that certain motor vehicle dealers provide an annual disclosure of their privacy policies to their customers by hand delivery, mail, electronic delivery, or, alternatively through a Web site, but only with the consent of the consumer. The amendment would allow motor vehicle dealers instead to notify their customers that a privacy policy is available on their Web site, under certain circumstances. The amendment would also revise the scope and definitions in this rule in light of the transfer of part of the Commission’s rulemaking authority to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB or the Bureau) in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, but retains certain examples for purposes of the FTC’s Safeguards Rule. Comments must be received on or before August 31, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS implements accountability measures (AMs) for the commercial sector for Atlantic dolphin (dolphin) in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the Atlantic states (Maine through the east coast of Florida) for the 2015 fishing year through this temporary rule. Commercial landings for dolphin, as estimated by the Science and Research Director, are projected to reach the commercial annual catch limit (ACL) by June 24, 2015. Therefore, NMFS closes the commercial sector for dolphin on June 24, 2015, through the remainder of the fishing year in  the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the Atlantic. This closure is necessary to protect the dolphin resource. This rule is effective 12:01 a.m., local time, June 24, 2015, until 12:01 a.m., local time, January 1, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Atka mackerel in the Central Aleutian district (CAI) of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI) by vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery. This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2015 total allowable catch (TAC) of Atka mackerel in this area allocated to vessels participating in the BSAI trawl limited access fishery. Effective 1200 hrs, Alaska local time (A.l.t.), June 20, 2015, through 2400 hrs, A.l.t., December 31, 2015.
