Download as PDF 34207 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 133 / Tuesday, July 14, 2009 / Rules and Regulations and E.O. 13208 (66 FR 18717, published April 11, 2001). E.O. 13202 prohibited the Government from requiring or prohibiting the use of project labor agreements by its construction contractors and subcontractors, and E.O. 13208 authorized certain exemptions from E.O. 13202. This final rule amends the Federal Acquisition Regulation to revise FAR 36.202(d) to delete any references to the revoked Executive Order 13202. This is a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this rule. This final rule does not constitute a significant FAR revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501 and Public Law 98–577, and publication for public comments is not required. C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to the FAR do not impose information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, et seq. 1. The authority citation for 48 CFR parts 17, 22, and 36 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c); 10 U.S.C. chapter 137; and 42 U.S.C. 2473(c).
