SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Electronic Version: The electronic file of this document is available on the date of publication in the Federal Register at http://www.gpoaccess.gov/fr/ index.html. Background ACTION: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES AGENCY: The Social Security Act requires annual increases in Social Security benefits to keep up with increases in the cost-of-living as measured by the CPI. In order to provide more accurate information regarding increases in the CPI, the Bureau of Labor Statistics will begin publishing the CPI to the third, rather than the first, decimal place for January 2007. The effect of this change on benefit amounts is negligible. For additional information on cost-of-living increases and the types of benefits affected, see §§ 404.270 and 404.271. SUMMARY: We are revising our rules that deal with automatic cost-of-living increases to primary insurance amounts under title II of the Social Security Act (the Act). The revision is necessary because, beginning with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for January 2007, the Bureau of Labor Statistics will publish the CPI to three decimal places. The CPI is currently published to one decimal place as is now reflected in our regulations. With this revision, our rules will conform to the change in the reporting of the CPI. DATES: These regulations are effective January 18, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jerry Strauss, Social Insurance Specialist, VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Jan 17, 2007 Jkt 211001 Explanation of Changes We have revised § 404.275(a) by replacing the current language stating that we will round the calculations of the CPI average to the nearest 0.1 with PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 language stating that we will round the CPI average ‘‘to the same number of decimal places as the published CPI figures.’’ In addition, we added language stating that when a different number of decimal places is used for the beginning and ending quarters, we will use the number for the ending quarter. Therefore, since the CPI is now published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to the third decimal place, rather than the first, our computation of quarterly average CPI’s will be consistent with such publication. Regulatory Procedures Pursuant to section 702(a)(5) of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. 902(a)(5), as amended by section 102 of Public Law 103–296, SSA follows the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) rulemaking procedures specified in 5 U.S.C. 553 in the development of its regulations. The APA provides exceptions to its notice and public comment procedures when an agency finds there is good cause for dispensing with such procedures on the basis that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. In the case of these final rules, we have determined that, under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), good cause exists for dispensing with the notice and public comment procedures in this case because these regulations merely conform our rules to reflect the way the Bureau of Labor Statistics now publishes the CPI.
