SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule revises the Department’s description of the Office of Information Policy to reflect the Office’s establishment as a separate component within the Department of Justice. References to the advice and training formerly provided by the Office of Information Policy on Privacy Act matters have been deleted in light of the performance of those tasks by the recently created Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties. SUMMARY: Administrative Procedure Act This rule relates to a matter of agency management or personnel and therefore is exempt from the usual requirements of prior notice and comment and a 30day delay in effective date. See 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2). Regulatory Flexibility Act The Attorney General, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b), has reviewed this rule and, by approving it, certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it pertains to personnel and administrative matters affecting the Department. A Regulatory Flexibility Analysis was not required to be prepared for this final rule because the Department was not required to publish a general notice of proposed rulemaking for this matter. Executive Order 12866 This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with Executive PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review,’’ section 1(b), ‘‘Principles of Regulation.’’ This rule is limited to agency organization, management, and personnel as described by Executive Order 12866 section 3(d)(3) and, therefore, is not a ‘‘regulation’’ or ‘‘rule’’ as defined by that Executive Order. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. Executive Order 13132 This rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with Executive Order 13132, ‘‘Federalism,’’ the Department of Justice has determined that this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement. Executive Order 12988 This rule meets the applicable standards provided in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, ‘‘Civil Justice Reform.’’ Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This rule will not result in the expenditure by state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million 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, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 This rule is not a major rule as defined by section 251 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 804. This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more; a major increase in cost or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreign-based companies in domestic and export markets. This action pertains to agency management, personnel, and organization and does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of nonagency parties. Accordingly, it is not a ‘‘rule’’ for purposes of the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801.

Office of the Attorney General

28 CFR Part 0

[Docket No. OAG 128; A.G. Order No. 3085-2009]


Organization; Office of Information Policy

AGENCY: Department of Justice.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule updates the regulation that describes the structure, 
functions, and responsibilities of the Office of Information Policy of 
the Department of Justice. The rule updates the description of the 
Office to reflect certain changes to its structure and organizational 
location.

DATES: Effective Date: June 19, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Janice Galli McLeod, Associate 
Director, Office of Information Policy, U.S. Department of Justice, 
Washington, DC 20530, (202) 514-3642.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule revises the Department's 
description of the Office of Information Policy to reflect the Office's 
establishment as a separate component within the Department of Justice. 
References to the advice and training formerly provided by the Office 
of Information Policy on Privacy Act matters have been deleted in light 
of the performance of those tasks by the recently created Office of 
Privacy and Civil Liberties.

Administrative Procedure Act

    This rule relates to a matter of agency management or personnel and 
therefore is exempt from the usual requirements of prior notice and 
comment and a 30-day delay in effective date. See 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Attorney General, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b), has reviewed this rule and, by approving it, 
certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities because it pertains to personnel 
and administrative matters affecting the Department. A Regulatory 
Flexibility Analysis was not required to be prepared for this final 
rule because the Department was not required to publish a general 
notice of proposed rulemaking for this matter.

Executive Order 12866

    This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with 
Executive Order 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' section 
1(b), ``Principles of Regulation.'' This rule is limited to agency 
organization, management, and personnel as described by Executive Order 
12866 section 3(d)(3) and, therefore, is not a ``regulation'' or 
``rule'' as defined by that Executive Order. Accordingly, this rule has 
not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.

Executive Order 13132

    This rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, 
on the relationship between the national government and the States, or 
on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various 
levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with Executive Order 
13132, ``Federalism,'' the Department of Justice has determined that 
this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant 
the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement.

Executive Order 12988

    This rule meets the applicable standards provided in sections 3(a) 
and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, ``Civil Justice Reform.''

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    This rule will not result in the expenditure by state, local, and 
tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 
million 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, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996

    This rule is not a major rule as defined by section 251 of the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 
804. This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of 
$100 million or more; a major increase in cost or prices; or 
significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, 
productivity, innovation, or the ability of United States-based 
companies to compete with foreign-based companies in domestic and 
export markets.
    This action pertains to agency management, personnel, and 
organization and does not substantially affect the rights or 
obligations of non-agency parties. Accordingly, it is not a ``rule'' 
for purposes of the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801.

[[Page 29129]]

Congressional Review Act

    This action pertains to agency organization and management and does 
not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency 
parties. Accordingly, it 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.
