Technical Amendments; Change of Address for the Office of Pesticide Programs, 35543-35547 [E6-9750]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 119 / Wednesday, June 21, 2006 / Rules and Regulations subsistence priority was published on January 8, 1999 (64 FR 1276.) Section 810 of ANILCA The intent of all Federal subsistence regulations is to accord subsistence uses of fish and wildlife on public lands a priority over the taking of fish and wildlife on such lands for other purposes, unless restriction is necessary to conserve healthy fish and wildlife populations. A Section 810 analysis was completed as part of the FEIS process. The final Section 810 analysis determination appeared in the April 6, 1992, ROD, which concluded that the Federal Subsistence Management Program, under Alternative IV with an annual process for setting hunting and fishing regulations, may have some local impacts on subsistence uses, but the program is not likely to significantly restrict subsistence uses. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES Paperwork Reduction Act The adjustment and emergency closures do not contain information collection requirements subject to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Other Requirements The adjustments have been exempted from OMB review under Executive Order 12866. The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires preparation of flexibility analyses for rules that will have a significant effect on a substantial number of small entities, which include small businesses, organizations, or governmental jurisdictions. The exact number of businesses and the amount of trade that will result from this Federal land-related activity is unknown. The aggregate effect is an insignificant economic effect (both positive and negative) on a small number of small entities supporting subsistence activities, such as boat, fishing gear, and gasoline dealers. The number of small entities affected is unknown; however, the effects will be seasonally and geographically limited in nature and will likely not be significant. The Departments certify that the adjustments will not have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), this rule is not a major rule. It does not have an effect on the economy of $100 million or more, will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, and does not have VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Jun 20, 2006 Jkt 208001 significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises. Title VIII of ANILCA requires the Secretaries to administer a subsistence preference on public lands. The scope of this program is limited by definition to certain public lands. Likewise, the adjustments have no potential takings of private property implications as defined by Executive Order 12630. The Service has determined and certifies under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, 2 U.S.C. 1502 et seq., that the adjustments will not impose a cost of $100 million or more in any given year on local or State governments or private entities. The implementation is by Federal agencies, and no cost is involved to any State or local entities or tribal governments. The Service has determined that the adjustments meet the applicable standards provided in Sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, regarding civil justice reform. In accordance with Executive Order 13132, the adjustments do not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism assessment. Title VIII of ANILCA precludes the State from exercising subsistence management authority over fish and wildlife resources on federal lands. Cooperative salmon run assessment efforts with ADF&G will continue. In accordance with the President’s memorandum of April 29, 1994, ‘‘Government-to-Government Relations with Native American Tribal Governments’’ (59 FR 22951), Executive Order 13175, and 512 DM 2, we have evaluated possible effects on federally recognized Indian tribes and have determined that there are no effects. The Bureau of Indian Affairs is a participating agency in this rulemaking. On May 18, 2001, the President issued Executive Order 13211 on regulations that significantly affect energy supply, distribution, or use. This Executive Order requires agencies to prepare Statements of Energy Effects when undertaking certain actions. As these actions are not expected to significantly affect energy supply, distribution, or use, they are not significant energy actions and no Statement of Energy Effects is required.

II. Background A. What Action is the Agency Taking? OPP has relocated to new offices in Arlington, VA. This move was VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Jun 20, 2006 Jkt 208001 announced in the Federal Register of April 19, 2006 (71 FR 20089) (FRL– 8065–6). Detailed information on how to contact OPP at the new location was recently provided to the public in Pesticide Registration (PR) Notice 2006– 1 (April 12, 2006). PR Notice 2006–1 contains the mail codes which are to be used with submissions to OPP and is available on the Agency’s website at http://www.epa.gov/PR_Notices/pr20061.pdf. The Agency is now amending its pesticide regulations in parts 150–189 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to change the manner in which the addresses are referenced. Currently, there are over 20 references in 40 CFR parts 150–189 to either an address or docket location. Rather than maintain and have to update multiple address references, the Agency is creating a new § 150.17 to contain the U.S. Postal Service mailing address, the address for hand/courier delivery, and the location of the OPP Regulatory Public Docket. This means that individual addresses scattered throughout the CFR are being replaced by a reference to § 150.17. B. What is the Agency’s Authority for Taking this Action? EPA is issuing this document under its general rulemaking authority, Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1970 (5 U.S.C. App.). C. Why is EPA Issuing this as a Final Rule? Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A), provides that an agency may issue rules of agency organization, procedure, and practice without first giving notice. This address change regulation qualifies as a rule of organization, procedure, or practice. Additionally, section 553 of the APA, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because the actions taken in this final rule represent technical amendments to the regulations and do not involve substantive Agency action. Moreover, maintaining incorrect information on how to submit documents to the Agency may have legal consequences, and may increase costs to the regulated industry. For these reasons, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. EPA finds PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This final rule implements technical amendments to 40 CFR chapter I, subchapter E, to reflect the new OPP address. It does not otherwise impose or amend any requirements. As such, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has determined that a technical amendment is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by OMB under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because this rule has been exempted from review under Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, 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). This final rule does not contain any information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104–4). Nor does it require any special considerations under Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994); or OMB review or any Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). This action does not involve any technical standards that require the Agency’s consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104–113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). Since this action is not subject to notice-and-comment requirements under the APA or any other statute, this action is not subject to the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). In addition, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). The Agency has determined that this rule does not have any substantial E:\FR\FM\21JNR1.SGM 21JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 119 / Wednesday, June 21, 2006 / Rules and Regulations direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes as described in Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000). Thus, Executive Order 13132 and 13175 do not apply to this rule. IV. Congressional Review Act Yes. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) 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. Section 808 of CRA allows the issuing agency to make a rule effective sooner than otherwise provided by the CRA, if the agency makes a good cause finding that notice and public procedure is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. This determination must be supported by a brief statement (5 U.S.C. 808(2)). As stated previously, EPA has made such a good cause finding, including the reasons therefore, and established an effective date of June 21, 2006. 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. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

Instructions: Direct your comments to Docket ID No. EPA–R01–RCRA–2006– 0391. EPA’s policy is that all comments received will be included in the public docket without change and may be made available online at www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided, unless the comment includes information claimed to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Do not submit information that you consider to be CBI or otherwise protected through www.regulations.gov or e-mail. The www.regulations.gov Web site is an ‘‘anonymous access’’ system, which means EPA will not know your identity or contact information unless you provide it in the body of your comment. If you send an e-mail comment directly to EPA without going through www.regulations.gov, your email address will be automatically captured and included as part of the comment that is placed in the public docket and made available on the Internet. If you submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name and other contact information in the body of your comment and with any disk or CD–ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your comment due to technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic files should avoid the use of special characters, any form of encryption, and be free of any defects or viruses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Previously, on October 21, 2003, the EPA proposed an extension of the original expiration date of the Labs XL Project. EPA received no negative public comments in response to the proposal, and published a final rule on March 12, 2004. EPA is again extending the expiration date, this time as a direct final rule, without prior proposal, because the Agency views the extension as non-controversial and anticipates no adverse comments. Unless the EPA gets written comments which oppose this action during the comment period, the decision will take effect as provided below. If EPA gets comments that oppose this action, EPA will withdraw this direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will then address the public comments in a later final rule, but may not provide any further opportunity for comment beyond what is being provided for in this document. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so during the comment period being provided for in this action. A. Why Is the EPA Extending the Expiration Date of Its XL Project Regulations? As indicated above, EPA is extending the expiration date of September 30, 2006 set forth in 40 CFR 262.108 of the Labs XL Project regulations until April E:\FR\FM\21JNR1.SGM 21JNR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this Action Apply to Me?

    You may be potentially affected by this action if you submit 
applications or other pesticide related information to OPP. Potentially 
affected entities may include, but are not limited to:
     Pesticide manufacturing (NAICS code 32532).
    This listing is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather provides 
a guide for readers regarding entities likely to be affected by this 
action. Other types of entities not listed in this unit could also be 
affected. The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) 
codes have been provided to assist you and others in determining 
whether this action might apply to certain entities. If you have any 
questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular 
entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION 
CONTACT.

B. How Can I Access Electronic Copies of this Document?

    In addition to accessing an electronic copy of this Federal 
Register document through the electronic docket at http://
www.regulations.gov, you may access this Federal Register document 
electronically through the EPA Internet under the ``Federal Register'' 
listings at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr. You may also access a 
frequently updated electronic version of 40 CFR parts 150, 152, 154, 
158, 159, 168, 170, 172, 174, 178, and 180 through the Government 
Printing Office's pilot e-CFR site at http://www.gpoaccess.gov/ecfr.

II. Background

A. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    OPP has relocated to new offices in Arlington, VA. This move was 
announced in the Federal Register of April 19, 2006 (71 FR 20089) (FRL-
8065-6). Detailed information on how to contact OPP at the new location 
was recently provided to the public in Pesticide Registration (PR) 
Notice 2006-1 (April 12, 2006). PR Notice 2006-1 contains the mail 
codes which are to be used with submissions to OPP and is available on 
the Agency's website at http://www.epa.gov/PR_Notices/pr2006-1.pdf.
    The Agency is now amending its pesticide regulations in parts 150-
189 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to change the manner in 
which the addresses are referenced. Currently, there are over 20 
references in 40 CFR parts 150-189 to either an address or docket 
location. Rather than maintain and have to update multiple address 
references, the Agency is creating a new Sec.  150.17 to contain the 
U.S. Postal Service mailing address, the address for hand/courier 
delivery, and the location of the OPP Regulatory Public Docket. This 
means that individual addresses scattered throughout the CFR are being 
replaced by a reference to Sec.  150.17.

B. What is the Agency's Authority for Taking this Action?

    EPA is issuing this document under its general rulemaking 
authority, Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1970 (5 U.S.C. App.).

C. Why is EPA Issuing this as a Final Rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(A), provides that an agency may issue rules of agency 
organization, procedure, and practice without first giving notice. This 
address change regulation qualifies as a rule of organization, 
procedure, or practice.
    Additionally, section 553 of the APA, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), 
provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and 
public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the 
public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice 
and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is 
good cause for making this rule final without prior proposal and 
opportunity for comment because the actions taken in this final rule 
represent technical amendments to the regulations and do not involve 
substantive Agency action. Moreover, maintaining incorrect information 
on how to submit documents to the Agency may have legal consequences, 
and may increase costs to the regulated industry.
    For these reasons, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. EPA 
finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This final rule implements technical amendments to 40 CFR chapter 
I, subchapter E, to reflect the new OPP address. It does not otherwise 
impose or amend any requirements. As such, the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) has determined that a technical amendment is not a 
``significant regulatory action'' subject to review by OMB under 
Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 
51735, October 4, 1993). Because this rule has been exempted from 
review under Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, 
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). This final rule does not contain any 
information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable 
duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the 
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4). Nor 
does it require any special considerations under Executive Order 12898, 
entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority 
Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994); 
or OMB review or any Agency action under Executive Order 13045, 
entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and 
Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). This action does not 
involve any technical standards that require the Agency's consideration 
of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the 
National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), 
Public Law 104-113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note).
    Since this action is not subject to notice-and-comment requirements 
under the APA or any other statute, this action is not subject to the 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et 
seq.). In addition, the Agency has determined that this action will not 
have a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between 
the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power 
and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as 
specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, 
August 10, 1999). The Agency has determined that this rule does not 
have any substantial

[[Page 35545]]

direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship 
between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes as described in Executive Order 13175, 
entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments 
(65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000). Thus, Executive Order 13132 and 13175 
do not apply to this rule.

IV. Congressional Review Act

    Yes. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) 
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. Section 808 of CRA allows the issuing 
agency to make a rule effective sooner than otherwise provided by the 
CRA, if the agency makes a good cause finding that notice and public 
procedure is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest. This determination must be supported by a brief statement (5 
U.S.C. 808(2)). As stated previously, EPA has made such a good cause 
finding, including the reasons therefore, and established an effective 
date of June 21, 2006. 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. This action is not 
a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
