ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration is amending the Federal 
Management Regulation (FMR) language that pertains to personal property 
by correcting references to outdated or superseded provisions of law or 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 any corresponding documents may be accessed at GSA's Web site at

pertaining to status or publication schedules. For clarification of

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    In the years since 41 CFR part 102-42 was published as a final 
rule, the references to other regulations which migrated from the 
Federal Property

[[Page 28778]]

Management Regulations (FPMR) (41 CFR chapter 101) to the Federal 
Management Regulation (FMR) (41 CFR chapter 102) became outdated. 
Additionally, in the intervening years since this regulation was 
published, several agencies have moved or changed names. Finally, 
updating or clarifying revisions were made where the revisions are 
administrative or clerical in nature. This includes--
    1. Clarified provisions regarding the handling of foreign gifts 
that are below the minimal value established by GSA, including a 
revised definition of ``minimal value''; and
    2. A revised provision for the handling of foreign gifts and 
decorations received by the Vice President.

B. Executive Order 12866

    The General Services Administration (GSA) has determined that this 
final rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of 
Executive Order 12866.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This final rule is not required to be published in the Federal 
Register for comment. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does 
not apply.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to 
the FMR do not impose information collection requirements that require 
the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 
3501, et seq.

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.
