Federal Register Highlights – 9/28/15

September 28, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for September 28, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is exchanging allocations of Amendment 80 cooperative quota (CQ) for Amendment 80 acceptable biological catch (ABC) reserves. This action is necessary to allow the 2015 total allowable catch of flathead sole, rock sole, and yellowfin sole in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area to be harvested. Effective September 28, 2015, through December 31, 2015.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Although this space attempts to remain apolitical, events occasionally conspire against that lofty goal. As we approach the end of the Federal government’s fiscal year on September 30, events in Washington are currently pointing to the possibility of another government shutdown. Please be aware that if this occurs, it would all but shut down publication of the Federal Register, except for the most critical rulemaking needs. What this means for my readers is mostly blank postings until the gridlock cracks and publication of the Federal Register resumes. Sorry, readers, but this is one that I do not have much control over. Please continue to watch this space as the current saga unfolds.
