Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 5, 2007 / Rules and Regulations on either small or large Florida citrus handlers. As with all Federal marketing order programs, reports and forms are periodically reviewed to reduce information requirements and duplication by industry and public sector agencies. AMS is committed to complying with the E-Government Act, to promote the use of the Internet and other information technologies to provide increased opportunities for citizen access to Government information and services, and for other purposes. USDA has not identified any relevant Federal rules that duplicate, overlap, or conflict with this rule. An interim final rule concerning this action was published in the Federal Register on July 30, 2007 (72 FR 41423). Copies of that rule were also mailed or sent via facsimile to all citrus handlers. Finally, the interim final rule was made available through the Internet by USDA and the Office of the Federal Register. A 60-day comment period was provided for interested persons to respond to the interim final rule. The comment period ended on September 28, 2007, and no comments were received. A small business guide on complying with fruit, vegetable, and specialty crop marketing agreements and orders may be viewed at: http://www.ams.usda.gov/ fv/moab.html. Any questions about the compliance guide should be sent to Jay Guerber at the previously mentioned address in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. After consideration of all relevant material presented, including the information and recommendation submitted by the Committee and other available information, it is hereby found that this rule, as hereinafter set forth, will tend to effectuate the declared policy of the Act.

Change in Address for the Department of Transportation (DOT) and DOT Migration to the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment. AGENCY: This technical amendment addresses the following administrative changes— (1) The Department of Transportation (DOT) relocation of its entire headquarters to 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC; (2) The DOT migration to the governmentwide electronic Federal Document Management System (FDMS) which replaces the old DOT Docket Management System (DMS); and (3) Closure of DOT Transportation Branch Library. As a result of these changes, the FAA is amending 14 CFR parts 11, 13, 17, 36, 91, 139, 150, 193, 404, and 406. Because these actions are merely administrative in nature and removes outdated references, the FAA finds that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 5553(d) for making this amendment effective upon publication.

The intended effect of this action is to ensure that the regulated public is informed of address changes, electronic docket changes, and other administrative matters.

DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

Federal Aviation Administration

14 CFR Parts 11, 13, 17, 36, 91, 139, 150, 193, 404, and 406


Change in Address for the Department of Transportation (DOT) and 
DOT Migration to the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS)

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

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

SUMMARY: This action updates the Department of Transportation (DOT) 
addresses, changes references from the Docket Management System to the 
Federal Docket Management System (FDMS), and removes obsolete 
information listed in FAA regulations as a result of DOT's relocation, 
migration to the Federal electronic docket system, and closure of the 
DOT Branch Library. The intended effect of this action is to ensure 
that the regulated public is informed of address changes, electronic 
docket changes, and other administrative matters.

DATES: Effective December 5, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Barbara Dinkins, Office of Rulemaking, 
ARM-210, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., 
Washington, DC 20591; telephone: (202-493-4657); facsimile: (202-267-
5075); e-mail: barbara.b.dinkins@faa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This technical amendment addresses the 
following administrative changes--
    (1) The Department of Transportation (DOT) relocation of its entire 
headquarters to 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC;
    (2) The DOT migration to the governmentwide electronic Federal 
Document Management System (FDMS) which replaces the old DOT Docket 
Management System (DMS); and
    (3) Closure of DOT Transportation Branch Library.
    As a result of these changes, the FAA is amending 14 CFR parts 11, 
13, 17, 36, 91, 139, 150, 193, 404, and 406.
    Because these actions are merely administrative in nature and 
removes outdated references, the FAA finds that notice and public 
procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. For the same reason, 
the FAA finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 5553(d) for making 
this amendment effective upon publication.

filed in a civil penalty adjudication are kept in the Federal Docket 
Management System (FDMS), except for documents that contain 
confidential information in accordance with Sec.  406.117. The FDMS is 
an electronic docket. Documents that are filed are scanned into the 
electronic docket and an index is made of all documents that have been 
filed so that any person may view the index and documents as provided 
in paragraph (f) of this section.
    (2) A party is not required to file written interrogatories and 
responses, requests for production of documents or tangible items and

service, the date shown on the postmark if there is no certificate of

not necessarily the date of service. It is the date the FDMS received 
the document.
    (d) Form. FDMS scans the document into its electronic docket. To 
ensure that FDMS can scan the document and correctly identify it in the 
index, each person filing a document must comply with the following:

* * * * *
    (e) Sending documents to the administrative law judge or Assistant 
Chief Counsel for Litigation. Sending the document directly to the
