In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Commission finds that good cause exists to make this Final Rule effective less than 30 days after its publication in the Federal Register. The rule concerns a matter of administrative procedures and does not affect the rights of persons appearing before the Commission. Therefore, there is no reason to make it effective at a later time. 18. The provisions of 5 U.S.C. 801 regarding Congressional review of Final Rules do not apply to this Final Rule, because the rule concerns agency procedure and practice and will not substantially affect the rights of nonagency parties. 19. The Commission is issuing this as a Final Rule without a period for public comment. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b), notice and comment procedures are unnecessary where a rulemaking concerns only agency procedure and practice, or where the agency finds that notice and comment is unnecessary. This rule concerns only matters of agency procedure and will not significantly affect regulated entities or the general public. List of Subjects in 18 CFR Part 1b Rules relating to investigations.

ACTION: Interim final rule; reopening comment period. SUMMARY: On March 4, 2010, the Department of Education published in the Federal Register an interim final rule and requested comments on that rule for the Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP). The rule became effective March 4, 2010, and the comment period for the interim final rule ended on April 5, 2010. During the comment period, the Department received requests asking that the Department extend the comment period for the interim final rule. This document announces the reopening of the comment period. DATES: The Department reopens the public comment period for the interim final rule that was published in the Federal Register on March 4, 2010 (75 FR 9777). Comments must be received on or before May 17, 2010. ADDRESSES: Submit your comments through the Federal eRulemaking Portal or via postal mail, commercial delivery, or hand delivery. We will not accept VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:07 Apr 23, 2010 Jkt 220001 comments by fax or by e-mail.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department reopens the public comment period for the interim final rule that was published in the Federal Register on March 4, 2010 (75 FR 9777) because we have determined that a longer comment period would provide local educational agencies submitting grant applications under the MSAP for fiscal year (FY) 2010 funding and other interested parties an opportunity to submit comments on the interim rule after the May 3, 2010 application deadline date announced for the FY 2010 grant competition in the notice inviting applications published on March 4, 2010 (75 FR 9879). The Department believes this approach will improve the quality of PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 information available for rulemaking, so the Secretary is reopening the comment period.
