The material for the assembly needs to be changed accordingly. (34) Additional information was added to the ‘‘Specifications for Pole Top Assemblies’’ stating that for NESC Grade B construction, the permitted line angles referenced on the pole top assemblies may need to be reduced based on the design engineer’s calculations. (35) Whereas the drawings for pole top assemblies do not show the permitted transverse load on the assemblies, the subtitles of the tables in Exhibit 1 referenced in the design parameters on the drawings specify the permitted transverse loads. (36) The alleged errors regarding the ‘‘wild leg’’ and the high side grounding on guide drawing G3.1G were checked and determined to be correct as drawn. Electronic (pdf) copies of this final rule and the new bulletin are available on the RUS Web site at http:// www.usda.gov/rus/electric/regs/ index.htm.

L.) 104–4, establishes requirements for Federal agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory actions on State, local, and tribal governments and the private sector. Under section 202 of the UMRA, Federal agencies generally must prepare a written statement, including costbenefit analysis, for proposed and final rules with ‘‘Federal mandates’’ that may result in expenditures to State, local, or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, or $100 million or more in any 1 year. When such statement is needed for a rule, section 205 of the UMRA generally requires a Federal agency to identify and consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives and adopt the least costly, more cost-effective, or least burdensome alternative that achieves the objectives of the rule. This rule contains no Federal mandates (under the regulatory provisions of Title II of the UMA) for State, local, and tribal governments or the private sector.

``Federal mandates'' that may result in expenditures to State, local, 
or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, or 
$100 million or more in any 1 year. When such statement is needed for a 
rule, section 205 of the UMRA generally requires a Federal agency to 
identify and consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives 
and adopt the least costly, more cost-effective, or least burdensome 
alternative that achieves the objectives of the rule.
