Categorical Exclusion for a Regulatory Amendment to Remove Outdated Text from Regulations at 50 CFR part 679
This non-controversial rule removes regulations in 50 CFR part 679 that are expired. The corrections in this rule will remove the clutter of outdated regulations which will result in clearer regulations and will reduce the potential for confusion.
In§ 679.20, NMFS would remove paragraphs (a)(5)(i)(D), (E), and (F), (a)(5)(iv)(C), and (c)(2); and remove the parenthetical phrase "(Effective April 1, 2005)" from paragraphs ( c )(5) and (c)(6).
This action improves the efficiency of the regulations and is necessary to remove the clutter of outdated regulations and potential confusion.
