SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [Docket No. APHIS–2011–0036] Background Golden Nematode; Removal of Regulated Areas The golden nematode (Globodera rostochiensis) is a destructive pest of potatoes and other solanaceous plants. Potatoes cannot be economically grown on land which contains large numbers of the nematode. The golden nematode has been determined to occur in the United States only in parts of the State of New York. In 7 CFR part 301, the golden nematode quarantine regulations (§§ 301.85 through 301.85–10, referred to below as the regulations) set out procedures for determining the areas regulated for golden nematode and impose restrictions on the interstate movement of regulated articles from regulated areas. Paragraph (a) of § 301.85–2 states that the Deputy Administrator, Plant Protection and Quarantine, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), shall list as regulated areas each quarantined State or each portion thereof in which golden nematode has been found or in which there is reason to believe that golden nematode is present, or which it is deemed necessary assignment, and allocation of costs to contracts with the United States Government. For purposes of this agenda, we have excluded directives that outline procedures to be followed in connection with the President’s budget and legislative programs and directives that affect only the internal functions, management, or personnel of Federal agencies.

Federal Regulations; OMB Circulars, OFPP Policy Letters, and CASB 
Cost Accounting Standards Included in the Semiannual Agenda of Federal 
Activities

AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

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

SUMMARY: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is publishing its 
semiannual agenda of upcoming activities for Federal regulations, OMB 
Circulars, Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) Policy Letters, 
and Cost Accounting Standards Board (CASB) Cost Accounting Standards.
    OMB Circulars and OFPP Policy Letters are published in accordance 
with OMB's internal procedures for implementing Executive Order No. 
12866 (October 4, 1993, 58 FR 51735). OMB policy guidelines are issued 
under authority derived from several sources including: Subtitles I, 
II, and V of Title 31, United States Code; Executive Order No. 11541; 
and other specific authority as cited. OMB Circulars and OFPP Policy 
Letters communicate guidance and instructions of a continuing nature to 
executive branch agencies. As such, most OMB Circulars and OFPP Policy 
Letters are not regulations. Nonetheless, because these issuances are 
typically of public interest, they are generally published in the 
Federal Register in both proposed (for public comment) and final 
stages. For this reason, they are presented below in the standard 
format of ``prerule,'' ``proposed rule,'' and ``final rule'' stages.
    CASB Cost Accounting Standards are issued under authority derived 
from 41 U.S.C. 1501. Cost Accounting Standards are rules governing the 
measurement, assignment, and allocation of costs to contracts with the 
United States Government.
    For purposes of this agenda, we have excluded directives that 
outline procedures to be followed in connection with the President's 
budget and legislative programs and directives that affect only the 
internal functions, management, or personnel of Federal agencies.
