FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY 5 CFR Part 2429 Changes in Filing Address and Procedures Federal Labor Relations Authority. ACTION: Final rule; technical amendments. AGENCY: The Federal Labor Relations Authority (Authority) is amending sections of part 2429 of its Regulations. The amendments, described below, make technical changes to the regulations regarding the address to which filings must be sent and the number of copies to be filed. DATES: Effective Date: May 13, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Tobey, Acting Executive Director, (202) 218–7999. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Labor Relations Authority (Authority) is making two technical changes to part 2429 of the Authority’s Regulations, 5 CFR part 2429. First, the filing address located in § 2429.24(a) is changed to reflect the new name of the office with which filings must be made. Second, § 2429.25 is amended to require five legible copies to be provided with the filing of the original, rather than the current requirement of four legible copies. Publication of this document constitutes final agency action on these changes under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). Notice and public procedures are unnecessary because the Authority is making only non-substantive technical changes. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with RULES SUMMARY: Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking The Authority for good cause finds that prior notice and opportunity for comment on these changes are unnecessary pursuant to 5 U.S.C. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:20 May 12, 2008 Jkt 214001 553(b)(3)(B) because the amendments to the affected sections are merely technical in nature and propose no substantive changes regarding which public comment could be solicited. Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification Pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b), I have determined that this regulation, as amended, will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities, because this rule only applies to federal employees, federal agencies, and labor organizations representing federal employees. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This rule change will not result in the expenditure by state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100,000,000 or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 This action is not a major rule as defined by section 804 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996. This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreignbased companies in domestic and export markets.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM and for making this regulation effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Publishing an NPRM and delaying its effective date would be contrary to public interest, since immediate action is needed to protect mariners on the Anacostia River against potential hazards associated with fireworks displays, such as the accidental discharge of fireworks and falling hot embers or other debris. Request for Comments Although we did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking, we encourage you to participate in this rulemaking by submitting comments and related materials. If you do so, please include your name and address, identify the docket number for this rulemaking (USCG–2008–0338), indicate the specific section of this document to which each comment applies, and give the reason for each comment. Please submit all comments and related material in an unbound format, no larger than 81⁄2 by 11 inches, suitable for copying. If you would like to know they reached us, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed postcard or envelope. We will consider all comments and material received during the effective period. We may change this rule in view of them. Background and Purpose Fireworks displays are frequently held from locations on or near the navigable waters of the United States. The accidental discharge of fireworks and falling hot embers or other debris are a safety concern during such events. The Coast Guard has the authority to impose appropriate controls on marine events that may pose a threat to persons, vessels and facilities under its jurisdiction. The purpose of this rule is to promote maritime safety, and to protect mariners transiting the area from the potential hazards associated with a fireworks display.

FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY

5 CFR Part 2429


Changes in Filing Address and Procedures

AGENCY: Federal Labor Relations Authority.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendments.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Labor Relations Authority (Authority) is amending 
sections of part 2429 of its Regulations. The amendments, described 
below, make technical changes to the regulations regarding the address 
to which filings must be sent and the number of copies to be filed.

DATES: Effective Date: May 13, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Tobey, Acting Executive 
Director, (202) 218-7999.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Labor Relations Authority 
(Authority) is making two technical changes to part 2429 of the 
Authority's Regulations, 5 CFR part 2429. First, the filing address 
located in Sec.  2429.24(a) is changed to reflect the new name of the 
office with which filings must be made. Second, Sec.  2429.25 is 
amended to require five legible copies to be provided with the filing 
of the original, rather than the current requirement of four legible 
copies.
    Publication of this document constitutes final agency action on 
these changes under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). 
Notice and public procedures are unnecessary because the Authority is 
making only non-substantive technical changes.

Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking

    The Authority for good cause finds that prior notice and 
opportunity for comment on these changes are unnecessary pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) because the amendments to the affected sections are 
merely technical in nature and propose no substantive changes regarding 
which public comment could be solicited.

Waiver of 30-Day Delayed Effective Date Requirement

    This Final Rule is made effective upon publication in the Federal 
Register. The Authority finds that good cause exists for the final rule 
to be exempt from the 30-day delayed effective date requirement of 5 
U.S.C. 553(d) because a delay in implementation of the new filing 
requirements would be contrary to the public interest.

Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification

    Pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 
U.S.C. 605(b), I have determined that this regulation, as amended, will 
not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small 
entities, because this rule only applies to federal employees, federal 
agencies, and labor organizations representing federal employees.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    This rule change will not result in the expenditure by state, 
local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private 
sector, of $100,000,000 or more in any one year, and it will not 
significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no 
actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996

    This action is not a major rule as defined by section 804 of the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996. This rule 
will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or 
more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse 
effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, 
innovation, or on the ability of United States-based companies to 
compete with foreign-based companies in domestic and export markets.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    The amended regulations contain no additional information 
collection or recordkeeping requirements under the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.

List of Subjects in 5 CFR Part 2429

    Administrative practice and procedure, Government employees, Labor 
management relations.
