Fraternization and Sexual Harassment, 12274 [E8-4210]

Download as PDF 12274 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 46 / Friday, March 7, 2008 / Rules and Regulations in any change to balances due by a debtor on any debt owed to the United States. The interim rule therefore addresses an internal ‘‘agency * * * procedure, or practice’’ within the meaning of section 553(b)(3)(A). Second, and relatedly, the Departments have determined that a comment period would be ‘‘unnecessary’’ under section 553(b)(3)(B), as the interim rule does not alter or affect the rights, interests, or duties of any person or entity. Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. The public is invited to submit comments on the interim rule, which will be taken into account before a final rule is issued. (f) When a debt is paid in partial or installment payments, amounts received by the Government shall be applied first to any contingency fees added to the debt, second to outstanding penalties, third to administrative costs other than contingency fees, fourth to interest, and last to principal. For purposes of this paragraph (f), ‘‘contingency fees’’ are administrative costs resulting from fees paid by a Federal agency to other Federal agencies or private collection contractors for collection services rendered when the fees are paid from the amounts collected from a debtor. * * * * * I 3. In § 901.9, revise paragraph (g) by removing the word ‘‘charges’’ in the first sentence and adding in its place the word ‘‘costs’’. Regulatory Analysis Dated: February 28, 2008. Henry M. Paulson, Jr., Secretary of the Treasury. Dated: November 6, 2007. Peter D. Keisler, Acting Attorney General. [FR Doc. E8–4586 Filed 3–6–08; 8:45 am] This action is limited to agency organization and management as described by Executive Order 12866 ((3(d)(3) and, therefore, is not a ‘‘regulation’’ as defined by that Executive Order. Accordingly, review of this action by the Office of Management and Budget is not required. BILLING CODE 4810–35–P Congressional Review Act This action pertains to agency organization and management and does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties and, accordingly, is not a ‘‘rule’’ as that term is used by the Congressional Review Act (Subtitle E of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA)). Therefore, the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801 does not apply. List of Subjects in Part 901 Administrative practice and procedure, Claims, Federal employees, Penalties, Privacy.
