Download as PDF 5794 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 23 / Friday, February 3, 2006 / Rules and Regulations H. Executive Order 13211, Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001) because it is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act As noted in the proposed rule, section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) of 1995, Public Law 104–113, 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standard bodies. The NTAA directs EPA to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decides not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards. The EPA believes that VCS are inapplicable to this action. This waiver of certain control requirements does not require the public to perform activities to which to the use of VCS would be relevant. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC71 with RULES J. Congressional Review Act The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). This rule will be effective March 6, 2006. K. Petitions for Judicial Review Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by April 4, 2006. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:50 Feb 02, 2006 Jkt 208001 purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Part 1631 provides that LSC grant recipients may not expend LSC funds except as in accordance with the restrictions and provisions contained in the Corporation’s Fiscal Year 1986 appropriations measure (Pub. L. 99–180, 99 Stat. 1136), unless such funds are expended pursuant to a waiver from the Corporation. Part 1631 was promulgated in 1986 in response to Congressional concerns that some pre-1982 funds were being held by recipients and spent on activities which were not prohibited at the time the funds were appropriated, but which were later prohibited (and on which recipients could not spend currently appropriated funds). 51 FR 24826 (July 9, 1986). In 2005, there is no longer any concern that recipients have any pre1982 funds to spend. In addition, in 1996, Congress adopted new restrictions and provisions applicable to recipients of LSC funds which supersede the restrictions in Public Law 99–180. Public Law 104–134, 110 Stat. 1321. These restrictions have been incorporated by reference in each subsequent appropriation, including the current appropriation. Public Law 108– 447, 118 Stat. 2809.

LEGAL SERVICES CORPORATION

45 CFR Part 1631


Expenditure of Grant Funds

AGENCY: Legal Services Corporation.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final rule deletes in its entirety the Legal Services 
Corporation's regulation at 45 CFR part 1631, Expenditure of Grant 
Funds. The deletion is warranted because the statutory authority for 
part 1631 is no longer the prevailing rule of law.

DATES: This final rule becomes effective March 6, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mattie C. Condray, Senior Assistant 
General Counsel, Office of Legal Affairs, Legal Services Corporation, 
3333 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20007; 202-295-1624 (ph); 202-337-
6519 (fax); mcondray@lsc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Part 1631 provides that LSC grant recipients 
may not expend LSC funds except as in accordance with the restrictions 
and provisions contained in the Corporation's Fiscal Year 1986 
appropriations measure (Pub. L. 99-180, 99 Stat. 1136), unless such 
funds are expended pursuant to a waiver from the Corporation. Part 1631 
was promulgated in 1986 in response to Congressional concerns that some 
pre-1982 funds were being held by recipients and spent on activities 
which were not prohibited at the time the funds were appropriated, but 
which were later prohibited (and on which recipients could not spend 
currently appropriated funds). 51 FR 24826 (July 9, 1986).
    In 2005, there is no longer any concern that recipients have any 
pre-1982 funds to spend. In addition, in 1996, Congress adopted new 
restrictions and provisions applicable to recipients of LSC funds which 
supersede the restrictions in Public Law 99-180. Public Law 104-134, 
110 Stat. 1321. These restrictions have been incorporated by reference 
in each subsequent appropriation, including the current appropriation. 
Public Law 108-447, 118 Stat. 2809. These restrictions have been 
separately incorporated into LSC's regulations and removal of part 1631 
will have no effect on the later

restrictions and provisions imposed by Public Law 104-134. See, e.g., 
45 CFR part 1610.
    In light of the above, LSC published a Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking (``NPRM'') on November 3, 2005 (70 FR 66814), proposing to 
remove and reserve part 1631 from Chapter XVI of Title 45 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations. LSC received no comments on the NPRM. 
Accordingly, as part 1631 is now obsolete, LSC is deleting part 1631 in 
its entirety. LSC believes this action will streamline LSC's 
regulations and avoid any potential confusion the continued existence 
of part 1631 might create.
