agreements with veterinarians under which they provide veterinary 
services in veterinarian shortage situations as authorized by the 
National Veterinary Medical Service Act (NVMSA) (7 U.S.C. 3151a). This 
rule also further delegates this authority from the Under Secretary for

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2003 NVMSA, 7 U.S.C. 3151a, authorized 
the Secretary of Agriculture to carry out the Veterinary Medicine Loan 
Repayment Act program. In fiscal year 2006 the first funding for this 
program was appropriated to CSREES of the United States Department of 
Agriculture (USDA). Not having previously delegated the authority to 
implement the NVMSA program, the Secretary of Agriculture is delegating 
the authority to implement this program to CSREES. In accordance with 
the authorizing legislation, CSREES is prepared to lead a collaborative 
effort with USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service and Animal and 
Plant Health Inspection Service to carry out the intent of the 
authorizing legislation.
    This rule relates to internal agency management. Therefore, 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2), notice of proposed rulemaking and 
opportunity for comment are not required, and this rule may be made 
effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. 
Further, because this rule relates to internal agency management, it is 
exempt from the provisions of Executive Order Nos. 12291 and 12866. 
Finally, this action is not a rule as defined by the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., and is, therefore, exempt from 
the provisions of that Act. Accordingly, as authorized by section 808 
of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 
U.S.C. 808, this rule may be made effective upon publication.
