ACTION: Direct Final rule; withdrawal. Due to the receipt of an adverse comment, the Office of Procurement and Property Management (OPPM) of the Department of Agriculture (USDA) is withdrawing the December 1, 2011, (76 FR 74722) direct final rule adding a new clause to the Agriculture Acquisition Regulation at subpart 422.70 entitled ‘‘Labor Law Violations’’ that would have a contractor certify upon accepting a contract that it is in compliance with all applicable labor laws and that, to the best of its knowledge, its subcontractors of any tier, and suppliers, are also in compliance with all applicable labor laws. The Department stated that in the event of an adverse comment being received by January 30, 2012, the direct final rule would be withdrawn in part or in whole. On January 27, 2012, USDA received a comment. USDA interprets this comment as adverse and, therefore, USDA is withdrawing the direct final rule.

Fairfax Drive, Room 622, Arlington, VA 22203. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Janet Bruner, (703) 358–2287. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are revising our ROW general regulations at 50 CFR part 29, which prescribe the procedures for filing applications for ROWs over and across Serviceadministered lands and the terms and conditions under which we grant these ROWs, to update or add addresses of several Service Regional Offices and to correct the names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon receipt of an application for a right-ofway for an oil and gas pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before granting a right-of-way. Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\06FER1.SGM 06FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 24 / Monday, February 6, 2012 / Rules and Regulations unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. We have determined that there is good cause for making this rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because we are merely updating the addresses for four of the Service’s Regional Offices, adding an address for one of the Service’s Regional Offices, and correcting the names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon receipt of an application for a right-of-way for an oil and gas pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before granting a right-of-way. Thus, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. We find that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(d), the Service finds there is good cause for this action to become effective immediately upon publication. The immediate effective date for this action is authorized under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), which allows an effective date less than 30 days after publication ‘‘as otherwise provided by the agency for good cause found and published with the rule.’’ The purpose of the 30-day waiting period prescribed in section 553(d) is to give affected parties a reasonable time to adjust their behavior and prepare before the final rule takes effect. This rule, however, does not create any new regulatory requirements such that affected parties would need time to prepare before the rule takes effect. Rather, this rule simply updates, corrects, and adds addresses for the Service’s Regional Offices, and corrects the names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon receipt of an application for a right-ofway for an oil and gas pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before granting a right-of-way. For this reason, the Service finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) for this action to become effective on the date of publication of this action. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Determination To Issue Final Rule Effective in Less Than 30 Days We have determined that the public notice and comment provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b), do not apply to this rulemaking because the changes being made relate solely to matters of agency organization. We have determined that there is good cause for making this rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because we are merely updating the addresses for four of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:13 Feb 03, 2012 Jkt 226001 Service’s Regional Offices, adding an address for one of the Service’s Regional Offices, and correcting the names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon receipt of an application for a right-of-way for an oil and gas pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before granting a right-of-way. Thus, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. We find that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). Review Under Procedural Statutes and Executive Orders We have reviewed this rule under the following statutes and executive orders governing rulemaking procedures: the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.; the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.; the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.; the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.; the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.; Executive Order 12630 (Takings); Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review); Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform); Executive Order 13045 (Economic Significance); Executive Order 13132 (Federalism); Executive Order 13175 (Tribal Consultation); and Executive Order 13211 (Energy Impacts). This rule does not trigger any of the procedural requirements of those statutes and executive orders, since this rule merely updates and adds addresses for Fish and Wildlife Service offices, and corrects the names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon receipt of an application for a right-ofway for an oil and gas pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before granting a right-of-way. Other Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This rule is not subject to Executive Order 12045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. This action does not involve technical standards; thus the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 271 et seq.) do not apply. This rule also does not require special consideration of issues related to environmental justice as required by Executive Order 12898. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General The Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1966, generally provides PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 5715 that, before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. Section 808 allows the issuing agency to make a rule effective sooner than otherwise provided by the CRA if the agency makes a good cause finding that notice and public procedure is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. This determination must be supported by a brief statement. 5 U.S.C. 808(2). As stated previously, the Service has made such a good cause finding, including the reasons therefore, and established an effective date immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. The Service will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. These updates and the addition to 50 CFR part 29 do not constitute a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

Change of Addresses for Regional Offices, Addition of One New 
Address, and Correction of Names of House and Senate Committees We Must 
Notify

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

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

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (we, or the Service), 
are revising our rights-of-way (ROW) general regulations, to update or 
add addresses of several Service Regional Offices, and to correct the 
names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon receipt of 
an application for a right-of-way for an oil and gas pipeline that is 
24 inches or more in diameter and again before granting a right-of-way.

DATES: This rule is effective on February 6, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Chief, Division of Realty, National Wildlife Refuge System, 
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 4401 N. Fairfax Drive, Room 622, 
Arlington, VA 22203.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Janet Bruner, (703) 358-2287.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are revising our ROW general regulations 
at 50 CFR part 29, which prescribe the procedures for filing 
applications for ROWs over and across Service-administered lands and 
the terms and conditions under which we grant these ROWs, to update or 
add addresses of several Service Regional Offices and to correct the 
names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon receipt of 
an application for a right-of-way for an oil and gas pipeline that is 
24 inches or more in diameter and again before granting a right-of-way.
    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable,

[[Page 5715]]

unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a 
rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. We 
have determined that there is good cause for making this rule final 
without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because we are 
merely updating the addresses for four of the Service's Regional 
Offices, adding an address for one of the Service's Regional Offices, 
and correcting the names of the House and Senate Committees we must 
notify upon receipt of an application for a right-of-way for an oil and 
gas pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before 
granting a right-of-way. Thus, notice and public procedure are 
unnecessary. We find that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B).
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(d), the Service finds there is good 
cause for this action to become effective immediately upon publication. 
The immediate effective date for this action is authorized under 5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3), which allows an effective date less than 30 days 
after publication ``as otherwise provided by the agency for good cause 
found and published with the rule.'' The purpose of the 30-day waiting 
period prescribed in section 553(d) is to give affected parties a 
reasonable time to adjust their behavior and prepare before the final 
rule takes effect. This rule, however, does not create any new 
regulatory requirements such that affected parties would need time to 
prepare before the rule takes effect. Rather, this rule simply updates, 
corrects, and adds addresses for the Service's Regional Offices, and 
corrects the names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify 
upon receipt of an application for a right-of-way for an oil and gas 
pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before 
granting a right-of-way. For this reason, the Service finds good cause 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) for this action to become effective on the 
date of publication of this action.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

Determination To Issue Final Rule Effective in Less Than 30 Days

    We have determined that the public notice and comment provisions of 
the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b), do not apply to this 
rulemaking because the changes being made relate solely to matters of 
agency organization. We have determined that there is good cause for 
making this rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for 
comment because we are merely updating the addresses for four of the 
Service's Regional Offices, adding an address for one of the Service's 
Regional Offices, and correcting the names of the House and Senate 
Committees we must notify upon receipt of an application for a right-
of-way for an oil and gas pipeline that is 24 inches or more in 
diameter and again before granting a right-of-way. Thus, notice and 
public procedure are unnecessary. We find that this constitutes good 
cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

Review Under Procedural Statutes and Executive Orders

    We have reviewed this rule under the following statutes and 
executive orders governing rulemaking procedures: the Unfunded Mandates 
Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.; the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.; the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.; the Paperwork Reduction 
Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.; the National Environmental Policy Act of 
1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.; Executive Order 12630 (Takings); 
Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review); Executive Order 
12988 (Civil Justice Reform); Executive Order 13045 (Economic 
Significance); Executive Order 13132 (Federalism); Executive Order 
13175 (Tribal Consultation); and Executive Order 13211 (Energy 
Impacts). This rule does not trigger any of the procedural requirements 
of those statutes and executive orders, since this rule merely updates 
and adds addresses for Fish and Wildlife Service offices, and corrects 
the names of the House and Senate Committees we must notify upon 
receipt of an application for a right-of-way for an oil and gas 
pipeline that is 24 inches or more in diameter and again before 
granting a right-of-way.

Other Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This rule is not subject to Executive Order 12045 (62 FR 19885, 
April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. This 
action does not involve technical standards; thus the requirements of 
section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act 
of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 271 et seq.) do not apply. This rule also does not 
require special consideration of issues related to environmental 
justice as required by Executive Order 12898.

Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

    The Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) as added 
by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1966, 
generally provides that, before a rule may take effect, the agency 
promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy 
of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller 
General of the United States. Section 808 allows the issuing agency to 
make a rule effective sooner than otherwise provided by the CRA if the 
agency makes a good cause finding that notice and public procedure is 
impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. This 
determination must be supported by a brief statement. 5 U.S.C. 808(2). 
As stated previously, the Service has made such a good cause finding, 
including the reasons therefore, and established an effective date 
immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. The Service will 
submit a report containing this rule and other required information to 
the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller 
General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the 
Federal Register. These updates and the addition to 50 CFR part 29 do 
not constitute a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
