SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of the Treasury (‘‘Treasury’’) is amending 31 CFR part 380, which governs the acceptable types of collateral and their assigned values that may be pledged to secure deposits of public monies and other financial interests of the government under Treasury’s Fiscal Service collateral programs. E:\FR\FM\12DER1.SGM 12DER1 75590 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 240 / Friday, December 12, 2008 / Rules and Regulations Treasury’s Fiscal Service administers several financial programs that involve the pledging of specific collateral. These programs are described in, and governed by, the regulations at 31 CFR part 202 (Depositaries and Financial Agents of the Government), 31 CFR part 203 (Payment of Federal Taxes and the Treasury Tax and Loan Program), and 31 CFR part 225 (Acceptance of Bonds Secured by Government Obligations in Lieu of Bonds with Sureties). The Financial Management Service (‘‘FMS’’), a bureau within Treasury’s Fiscal Service, administers these programs, which are handled operationally by the Federal Reserve System, acting as fiscal agent for Treasury. The Bureau of the Public Debt (‘‘Public Debt’’), another bureau within Treasury’s Fiscal Service, administers 31 CFR part 380, which governs the acceptability and valuation of the collateral in these programs. The Government Securities Regulations Staff at Public Debt is responsible for guidance and interpretations of those regulations.

Also, this amendment updates Public Debt’s postal mailing address. II.

This rule does not promulgate any substantive changes to the regulations being amended. Rather, this rule merely makes minor, technical changes, specifically, updating the mailing address and Web site address listed in the regulations, that do not involve the exercise of agency discretion and which are unlikely to generate public comment.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy is amending its certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law) of the Navy has determined that USS SAN FRANCISCO (SSN 711) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot comply fully with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship.

This amendment provides notice that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law) of the Navy, under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Navy, has certified that USS SAN FRANCISCO (SSN 711) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot comply fully with the following specific provisions of 72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship: Rule 21(a) pertaining to the location of the masthead lights over the fore and aft centerline of the ship. The Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has also certified that the lights involved are located in closest possible compliance with the applicable 72 COLREGS requirements. Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR parts 296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment prior to adoption is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on technical findings that the placement of lights on this vessel in a manner differently from that prescribed herein will adversely affect the vessel’s ability to perform its military functions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Department of the Treasury (``Treasury'') is amending 31 CFR 
part 380, which governs the acceptable types of collateral and their 
assigned values that may be pledged to secure deposits of public monies 
and other financial interests of the government under Treasury's Fiscal 
Service collateral programs.

[[Page 75590]]

    Treasury's Fiscal Service administers several financial programs 
that involve the pledging of specific collateral. These programs are 
described in, and governed by, the regulations at 31 CFR part 202 
(Depositaries and Financial Agents of the Government), 31 CFR part 203 
(Payment of Federal Taxes and the Treasury Tax and Loan Program), and 
31 CFR part 225 (Acceptance of Bonds Secured by Government Obligations 
in Lieu of Bonds with Sureties). The Financial Management Service 
(``FMS''), a bureau within Treasury's Fiscal Service, administers these 
programs, which are handled operationally by the Federal Reserve 
System, acting as fiscal agent for Treasury. The Bureau of the Public 
Debt (``Public Debt''), another bureau within Treasury's Fiscal 
Service, administers 31 CFR part 380, which governs the acceptability 
and valuation of the collateral in these programs. The Government 
Securities Regulations Staff at Public Debt is responsible for guidance 
and interpretations of those regulations.
    All information about the acceptability and valuation of collateral 
for these programs can be found on Public Debt's Web site. The Web site 
has changed and it can now be accessed at http://www.treasurydirect.gov 
instead of its previous address, http://www.publicdebt.treas.gov. Also, 
this amendment updates Public Debt's postal mailing address.

II. Procedural Requirements

Executive Order 12866

    This final rule is not subject to Executive Order 12866 because it 
relates only to Treasury's organization, specifically, the mailing 
address and Web site URL for one of its bureaus.

Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 551 et seq.

    The procedures for public notice and comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b), 
and the delayed effective date requirement of 5 U.S.C. 553(d), do not 
apply when an agency for good cause finds that the procedures are 
unnecessary. This rule does not promulgate any substantive changes to 
the regulations being amended. Rather, this rule merely makes minor, 
technical changes, specifically, updating the mailing address and Web 
site address listed in the regulations, that do not involve the 
exercise of agency discretion and which are unlikely to generate public 
comment. Accordingly, Treasury finds that good cause exists to dispense 
with notice and comment procedures for this rule, and to have the rule 
take immediate effect, under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and 553(d)(3).

Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.

    Because a notice of proposed rulemaking is not required under 5 
U.S.C. 553 for this rule, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply 
to this rule.
