Federal Management Regulation; FMR Case 2007-102-4, Transportation Payment and Audit; Refund of Expired, Unused Tickets, 9232-9233 [E8-3101]

Download as PDF 9232 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 34 / Wednesday, February 20, 2008 / Rules and Regulations sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES VII. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This final rule establishes a timelimited tolerance under section 408 of FFDCA. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted these types of actions from review 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, 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) or Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). 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., 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). Since tolerances and exemptions that are established on the basis of a FIFRA section 18 exemption under section 408 of FFDCA, such as the tolerance in this final rule, do not require the issuance of a proposed rule, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. This final rule directly regulates growers, food processors, food handlers, and food retailers, not States or tribes, nor does this action alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions of section 408(n)(4) of FFDCA. As such, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States or tribal governments, on the relationship between the national government and the States or tribal governments, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government or between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. Thus, the Agency has determined that Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999) and Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000) do not apply to this rule. In addition, This rule does not impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:54 Feb 19, 2008 Jkt 214001 Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104–4). This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency 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). VIII. Congressional Review Act The Congressional Review Act, 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 to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. 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 this final rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

Transportation Payment and Audit; Refund of Expired, Unused Tickets

AGENCY: Office of Governmentwide Policy, General Services 
Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Interim final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration is amending the Federal 
Management Regulation (FMR) pertaining to unused tickets. The section 
is being deleted that was published without a public comment period.

DATES: This final rule is effective on: February 20, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    GSA published Sec.  102-118.196 in the Federal Register at 69 FR 
57619, September 24, 2004, as an addition to part 118 of Title 41 (41 
CFR part 118). The amendment was published as a final rule without a 
comment period and required that Transportation Service Providers 
(TSPs) refund the value of expired, unused tickets to GSA's Audit 
Division when a ticket purchasing agency fails to notify the TSP of a 
cancellation.
    Since its publication, GSA has received feedback from sources who 
wanted to offer comments at the time the rule was originally published. 
After receipt of contacts from these sources,

[[Page 9233]]

GSA agreed to remove this specific provision in its current form.
    In order to accomplish this, it is necessary to remove the existing 
provision, and this FMR does so.

B. Executive Order 12866

    This regulation is excepted from the definition of ``regulation'' 
or ``rule'' under Section 3(d)(3) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory 
Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993 and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of that Executive Order.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This final rule is not required to be published in the Federal 
Register for notice and comment as per the exemption specified in 5 
U.S.C. 553(a)(2); therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 
601, et seq., 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.
