ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The General Services Administration is amending the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) language that pertains to personal property by correcting references to outdated or superceded provisions of law or regulation; correcting text to be in conformance with revised laws, regulation, or Federal agency responsibilities; and clarifying text where the intended meaning could be updated or made clearer. The FMR and rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES SUMMARY: 16:09 Apr 21, 2006 Jkt 208001 A. Background In the years since 41 CFR part 102– 39 was published as a final rule, the references to other regulations which migrated from the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR) (41 CFR chapter 101) to the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) (41 CFR chapter 102) became outdated. Also, Public Law 107–217 revised and recodified certain provisions of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (Property Act). For example, the Property Act provisions and topics previously found at 40 U.S.C. 471–514 will now generally be found at 40 U.S.C. 101–705. This revised regulation updates the title 40 U.S.C. citations to reflect the changes made by Public Law 107–217. Additionally, in the intervening years since these three regulations were published, several agencies have moved or changed names. Finally, updating or clarifying revisions were made where the revisions are seen as administrative or clerical in nature. E. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act This final rule is exempt from Congressional review under 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates solely to agency management and personnel.
