50744 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 189 / Thursday, October 1, 2009 / Proposed Rules proposed rule. Under the current regulations, existing leaseholders are excepted from the introduced species prohibition if they have active lease agreements at the time of implementation of the regulation (the regulation took effect on March 9, 2009). Under the proposed rule for the GFNMS, this exemption will no longer contain a geographic restriction of Tomales Bay, and will no longer restrict new permits from being issued through the State (as opposed to through the ONMS). This prohibition would not put any current operations out of business, because they will not need to change anything about their current procedures to continue in their operations. A beneficial effect from this proposed action may result for existing and future lease holders, such as reduced administrative burden for issuance or renewal of a lease permit. Comments received on the economic impacts of this proposed rule will be summarized and responded to in the final rule. F. Paperwork Reduction Act This proposed rule does not contain information collections that are subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act. Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. V. Request for Comments NOAA requests comments on this proposed rule for 45 days after publication of this notice.
