Final regulations. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Education (Department) issues these final regulations to adjust the Department’s civil monetary penalties (CMPs) for inflation. An initial ‘‘catch-up’’ adjustment was required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (2015 Act), which amended the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990 (Inflation Adjustment Act). These final regulations provide the 2017 annual inflation adjustments to the initial ‘‘catch-up’’ adjustments we made on August 1, 2016, through an interim final rule (IFR). DATES: These regulations are effective April 20, 2017. The adjusted CMPs established by these regulations are applicable only to civil penalties assessed after April 20, 2017 whose associated violations occurred after November 2, 2015. For a description of the CMPs applicable under other circumstances, see the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.

Individuals with disabilities can obtain this document in an accessible format (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, or compact disc) on request to the contact person listed in this section. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The Inflation Adjustment Act (28 U.S.C. 2461 note) provides for the regular evaluation of CMPs to ensure that they continue to maintain their deterrent value. The Inflation Adjustment Act required that each agency issue regulations to adjust its CMPs beginning in 1996 and at least every four years thereafter. The Department published its most recent cost adjustment to each CMP in the Federal Register on October 2, 2012 (77 FR 60047), and those adjustments became effective on the date of publication. The 2015 Act (section 701 of Pub. L. 114–74) amended the Inflation Adjustment Act to improve the effectiveness of CMPs and to maintain their deterrent effect. The 2015 Act requires agencies to: (1) Adjust the level of CMPs with an initial ‘‘catch-up’’ adjustment through an IFR; and (2) make subsequent annual adjustments for inflation. Catch-up adjustments are based on the percentage change between the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI–U) for the month of October in the year the penalty was last adjusted by a statute other than the Inflation Adjustment Act, and the October 2015 CPI–U. Annual inflation adjustments are based on the percentage change between the October CPI–U preceding the date of each statutory adjustment, and the prior year’s October CPI–U.1 The Department published an IFR with the initial ‘‘catch-up’’ penalty adjustment amounts on August 1, 2016 (81 FR 50321). These adjustments are currently in effect and apply to all CMPs covered by the Inflation Adjustment Act. We did not receive any public comments on this IFR. A CMP is defined in the Inflation Adjustment Act as any penalty, fine, or other sanction that is (1) for a specific monetary amount as provided by Federal law, or has a maximum amount 1 If a statute that created a penalty is amended to change the penalty amount, the Department does not adjust the penalty in the year following the adjustment. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 18559 provided for by Federal law; (2) assessed or enforced by an agency pursuant to Federal law; and (3) assessed or enforced pursuant to an administrative proceeding or a civil action in the Federal courts. The formula for the amount of a CMP inflation adjustment is prescribed by law, as explained in OMB Memorandum M–16–06 (February 24, 2016), and is not subject to the exercise of discretion by the Secretary of Education (Secretary). Under the 2015 Act, the Department was required to use, as the baseline for adjusting the CMPs in the IFR, the CMP amounts as they were most recently established or adjusted under a provision of law other than the Inflation Adjustment Act. In accordance with the 2015 Act, we did not use the amounts set out in 34 CFR part 36 in 2012 in the formula used in the IFR to adjust for inflation because those CMP amounts were updated pursuant to the Inflation Adjustment Act.2 Instead, the baselines we used in the IFR were the amounts set out most recently in each of the statutes that provide for civil penalties. Using these statutory CMPs, we determined which year those amounts were originally enacted by Congress (or the year the statutory amounts were last amended by the statute that established the penalty) and used the annual inflation adjustment multiplier corresponding to that year from Table A in OMB Memorandum M–16–06. We then rounded the number to the nearest dollar and checked, as required by the Inflation Adjustment Act, to see if that adjusted amount exceeded 150 percent of the CMP amount that was established under 34 CFR part 36, and in effect on November 2, 2015. If any of the amounts exceeded 150 percent, we were required to use the lesser amount (the 150 percent amount). All of the adjusted amounts were less than 150 percent so we did not have to replace any of the amounts we calculated using the multiplier from Table A of OMB Memorandum M–16–06 with the lesser amount. In these final regulations, we adjust each CMP amount provided in the IFR by a factor of 1.01636, as directed by OMB Memorandum M–17–11. Effective Dates: The precise penalty amount that will apply to violations occurring before 2 As originally enacted, the Inflation Adjustment Act limited the first increased adjustment, which we made through regulation, to a maximum of 10 percent. This 10 percent limitation affected the increase we last made in the 2012 rulemaking. In the 2015 Act, Congress determined that limiting the first adjustments to 10 percent reduced the effectiveness of the penalties, so the 2015 Act requires us to use the statutory amounts as our baseline.
