Insurer Reporting Requirements; List of Insurers Required To File Reports, 28343-28347 [2012-11565]

Download as PDF 28343 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 93 / Monday, May 14, 2012 / Proposed Rules otherwise impose any new or revised requirements. As such, this action is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, entitled ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review’’ (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Nor does it impose or change any information collection burden that requires additional review by OMB under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Because this proposed rule eliminates existing requirements without imposing any new or revised requirements, the Agency certifies pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. For the same reasons, it is not subject to the requirements of sections 202 and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538), and does not significantly or uniquely affect small governments or impose a significant intergovernmental mandate, as described in UMRA sections 203 and 204. This proposed rule does not have tribal implications, as specified in Executive Order 13175, entitled ‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments’’ (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), or federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled ‘‘Federalism’’ (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Since this action is not economically significant under Executive Order 12866, it is not subject to Executive Order 13045, entitled ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), and Executive Order 13211, entitled ‘‘Actions concerning Regulations that Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). 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. 272 note) do not apply. This proposed rule does not involve special consideration of environmental justice related issues as specified in Executive Order 12898, entitled ‘‘Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations’’ (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

Background Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 33112, Insurer reports and information, NHTSA requires certain passenger motor vehicle insurers to file an annual report with the agency. Each insurer’s report includes information about thefts and recoveries of motor vehicles, the rating rules used by the insurer to establish premiums for comprehensive coverage, the actions taken by the insurer to reduce such premiums and the actions taken by the insurer to reduce or deter theft. Under the agency’s regulation, 49 CFR part 544, the following insurers are subject to the reporting requirements: (1) Issuers of motor vehicle insurance policies whose total premiums account for 1 percent or more of the total premiums of motor vehicle insurance issued within the United States; (2) Issuers of motor vehicle insurance policies whose premiums account for 10 percent or more of total premiums written within any one state; and (3) Rental and leasing companies with a fleet of 20 or more vehicles not covered by theft insurance policies issued by insurers of motor vehicles, other than any governmental entity. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:46 May 11, 2012 Jkt 226001 Pursuant to its statutory exemption authority, the agency exempted certain passenger motor vehicle insurers from the reporting requirements. A. Small Insurers of Passenger Motor Vehicles Section 33112(f)(2) provides that the agency shall exempt small insurers of passenger motor vehicles if NHTSA finds that such exemptions will not significantly affect the validity or usefulness of the information in the reports, either nationally or on a stateby-state basis. The term ‘‘small insurer’’ is defined, in Section 33112(f)(1)(A) and (B), as an insurer whose premiums for motor vehicle insurance issued directly or through an affiliate, including pooling arrangements established under state law or regulation for the issuance of motor vehicle insurance, account for less than 1 percent of the total premiums for all forms of motor vehicle insurance issued by insurers within the United States. However, that section also stipulates that if an insurance company satisfies this definition of a ‘‘small insurer,’’ but accounts for 10 percent or more of the total premiums for all motor vehicle insurance issued in a particular state, the insurer must report about its operations in that state. In the final rule establishing the insurer reports requirement (52 FR 59; January 2, 1987), 49 CFR Part 544, NHTSA exercised its exemption authority by listing in Appendix A each insurer that must report because it had at least 1 percent of the motor vehicle insurance premiums nationally. Listing the insurers subject to reporting, instead of each insurer exempted from reporting because it had less than 1 percent of the premiums nationally, is administratively simpler since the former group is much smaller than the latter. In Appendix B, NHTSA lists those insurers required to report for particular states because each insurer had a 10 percent or greater market share of motor vehicle premiums in those states. In the January 1987 final rule, the agency stated that it would update Appendices A and B annually. NHTSA updates the appendices based on data voluntarily provided by insurance companies to A.M. Best.1 A.M. Best publishes in its State/Line Report each spring. The agency uses the data to determine the insurers’ market shares nationally and in each state. 1 A.M. Best Company is a well-recognized source of insurance company ratings and information. 49 U.S.C. 33112(i) authorizes NHTSA to consult with public and private organizations as necessary. PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 B. Self-Insured Rental and Leasing Companies In addition, upon making certain determinations, NHTSA grants exemptions to self-insurers, i.e., any person who has a fleet of 20 or more motor vehicles (other than any governmental entity) used for rental or lease whose vehicles are not covered by theft insurance policies issued by insurers of passenger motor vehicles, 49 U.S.C. 33112(b)(1) and (f). Under 49 U.S.C. 33112(e)(1) and (2), NHTSA may exempt a self-insurer from reporting, if the agency determines: (1) The cost of preparing and furnishing such reports is excessive in relation to the size of the business of the insurer; and 33112(e)(1) and (2), (2) The insurer’s report will not significantly contribute to carrying out the purposes of Chapter 331. In a final rule published June 22, 1990 (55 FR 25606), the agency granted a class exemption to all companies that rent or lease fewer than 50,000 vehicles, because it believed that the largest companies’ reports sufficiently represent the theft experience of rental and leasing companies. NHTSA concluded that smaller rental and leasing companies’ reports do not significantly contribute to carrying out NHTSA’s statutory obligations and that exempting such companies will relieve an unnecessary burden on them. As a result of the June 1990 final rule, the agency added Appendix C, consisting of an annually updated list of the selfinsurers subject to Part 544. Following the same approach as in Appendix A, NHTSA included, in Appendix C, each of the self-insurers subject to reporting instead of the self-insurers which are exempted. NHTSA updates Appendix C based primarily on information from Automotive Fleet Magazine and Auto Rental News.2 C. When a Listed Insurer Must File a Report Under Part 544, as long as an insurer is listed, it must file reports on or before October 25 of each year. Thus, any insurer listed in the appendices must file a report before October 25, and by each succeeding October 25, absent an amendment removing the insurer’s name from the appendices. 2 Automotive Fleet Magazine and Auto Rental News are publications that provide information on the size of fleets and market share of rental and leasing companies. E:\FR\FM\14MYP1.SGM 14MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 93 / Monday, May 14, 2012 / Proposed Rules II. Proposal III. Regulatory Impacts 1. Insurers of Passenger Motor Vehicles 1. Costs and Other Impacts This notice has not been reviewed under Executive Order 12866. NHTSA has considered the impact of this proposed rule and determined that the action is not ‘‘significant’’ within the meaning of the Department of Transportation’s regulatory policies and procedures. This proposed rule implements the agency’s policy of ensuring that all insurance companies that are statutorily eligible for exemption from the insurer reporting requirements are in fact exempted from those requirements. Only those companies that are not statutorily eligible for an exemption are required to file reports. NHTSA does not believe that this proposed rule, reflecting current data, affects the impacts described in the final regulatory evaluation prepared for the final rule establishing Part 544 (52 FR 59; January 2, 1987). Accordingly, a separate regulatory evaluation has not been prepared for this rulemaking action. The cost estimates in the 1987 final regulatory evaluation should be adjusted for inflation, using the Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index for 2012 (see http://www.bls.gov/cpi). The agency estimates that the cost of compliance is $50,000 (1987 dollars) for any insurer added to Appendix A, $20,000 (1987 dollars) for any insurer added to Appendix B, and $5,770 (1987 dollars) for any insurer added to Appendix C. If this proposed rule is made final, for Appendix A, the agency would propose to remove and add one company, for Appendix B, the agency would propose to make no change, and for Appendix C, the agency would propose to make no change. The agency estimates that the net effect of this proposal, if made final, would have no cost to insurers as a group. Interested persons may wish to examine the 1987 final regulatory evaluation. Copies of that evaluation were placed in Docket No. T86–01; Notice 2. Any interested person may obtain a copy of this evaluation by writing to NHTSA, Technical Reference Division, 1201 New Jersey Avenue SE., East Building, Ground Floor, Room E12–100, Washington, DC 20590, or by calling (202) 366–2588. Appendix A lists insurers that must report because each had 1 percent of the motor vehicle insurance premiums on a national basis. The list was last amended in a final rule published on July 13, 2011 (76 FR 41138). Based on the 2009 calendar year data market shares from A.M. Best, NHTSA proposes to remove American International Group from Appendix A and add California State Auto Group to Appendix A. Each of the 17 insurers listed in Appendix A are required to file a report before October 25, 2012, setting forth the information required by Part 544 for each State in which it did business in the 2009 calendar year. As long as these 17 insurers remain listed, they will be required to submit reports by each subsequent October 25 for the calendar year ending slightly less than 3 years before. Appendix B lists insurers required to report for particular States for calendar year 2009, because each insurer had a 10 percent or greater market share of motor vehicle premiums in those States. Based on the 2009 calendar year data for market shares from A.M. Best, we propose to make no change to Appendix B. The eight remaining insurers listed in Appendix B are required to report on their calendar year 2009 activities in every State where they had a 10 percent or greater market share. These reports must be filed by October 25, 2012, and set forth the information required by Part 544. As long as these eight insurers remain listed, they would be required to submit reports on or before each subsequent October 25 for the calendar year ending slightly less than 3 years before. emcdonald on DSK29S0YB1PROD with PROPOSALS 2. Rental and Leasing Companies Appendix C lists rental and leasing companies required to file reports. NHTSA proposes to make no change to Appendix C. Each of the remaining five companies (including franchisees and licensees) listed in Appendix C are required to file reports for calendar year 2009 no later than October 25, 2012, and set forth the information required by Part 544. As long as those five companies remain listed, they would be required to submit reports before each subsequent October 25 for the calendar year ending slightly less than 3 years before. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:46 May 11, 2012 Jkt 226001 2. Paperwork Reduction Act The information collection requirements in this proposed rule were submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). This collection of information is PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 28345 assigned OMB Control Number 2127– 0547 (‘‘Insurer Reporting Requirements’’). This collection of information is approved for use through April 30, 2015, and the agency will seek to extend the approval afterwards. The existing information collection indicates that the number of respondents for this collection is thirty, however, the actual number of respondents fluctuate from year to year. Therefore, because the number of respondents required to report for this final rule does not exceed the number of respondents indicated in the existing information collection, the agency does not believe that an amendment to the existing information collection is necessary. 3. Regulatory Flexibility Act The agency also considered the effects of this rulemaking under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). I certify that this proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The rationale for the certification is that none of the companies proposed for Appendices A, B, or C are construed to be a small entity within the definition of the RFA. ‘‘Small insurer’’ is defined, in part under 49 U.S.C. 33112, as any insurer whose premiums for all forms of motor vehicle insurance account for less than 1 percent of the total premiums for all forms of motor vehicle insurance issued by insurers within the United States, or any insurer whose premiums within any State, account for less than 10 percent of the total premiums for all forms of motor vehicle insurance issued by insurers within the State. This notice would exempt all insurers meeting those criteria. Any insurer too large to meet those criteria is not a small entity. In addition, in this rulemaking, the agency proposes to exempt all ‘‘self insured rental and leasing companies’’ that have fleets of fewer than 50,000 vehicles. Any self-insured rental and leasing company too large to meet that criterion is not a small entity. 4. Federalism This action has been analyzed according to the principles and criteria contained in Executive Order 12612, and it has been determined that the proposed rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism Assessment. 5. Environmental Impacts In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, NHTSA has considered the environmental impacts of this proposed rule and determined that it would not have a significant E:\FR\FM\14MYP1.SGM 14MYP1 28346 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 93 / Monday, May 14, 2012 / Proposed Rules impact on the quality of the human environment. 6. Regulation Identifier Number (RIN) The Department of Transportation assigns a regulation identifier number (RIN) to each regulatory action listed in the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulations. The Regulatory Information Service Center publishes the Unified Agenda in April and October of each year. You may use the RIN contained in the heading, at the beginning, of this document to find this action in the Unified Agenda. 7. Plain Language Executive Order 12866 and the President’s memorandum of June 1, 1998, require each agency to write all rules in plain language. Application of the principles of plain language includes consideration of the following questions: • Have we organized the material to suit the public’s needs? • Are the requirements in the proposal clearly stated? • Does the proposal contain technical language or jargon that is not clear? • Would a different format (grouping and order of sections, use of headings, paragraphing) make the rule easier to understand? • Would more (but shorter) sections be better? • Could we improve clarity by adding tables, lists, or diagrams? • What else could we do to make the proposal easier to understand? If you have any responses to these questions, you can forward them to me several ways: a. Mail: Carlita Ballard, Office of International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., (West Building) Washington, DC 20590; b.

Advance notice of proposed rulemaking; extension of comment period. We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), extend the deadline for submission of public comments to help us identify potential changes to our regulations that implement parts of the Endangered Species Act that would create incentives for landowners and others to take voluntary conservation actions to benefit species that may be likely to become threatened or endangered species. In particular, we seek comment on whether and how the Service can assure those who take such voluntary actions that the benefits of their actions will be recognized as offsetting the adverse effects of activities carried out after listing by that landowner or others. The practice of recognizing these actions, sometimes referred to as ‘‘advance mitigation’’ or ‘‘prelisting mitigation,’’ is intended to encourage early conservation efforts that could reduce or eliminate the need to list species as endangered or threatened. If you have previously submitted comments, please do not resubmit them, because we have already incorporated them into the public record and will fully consider them as we decide how we may propose changes to our regulations or policies.

SUMMARY: This document proposes to amend appendices to NHTSA 
regulations on Insurer Reporting Requirements. The appendices list 
those passenger motor vehicle insurers that are required to file 
reports on their motor vehicle theft loss experiences. An insurer 
included in any of these appendices would be required to file three 
copies of its report for the 2009 calendar year before October 25, 
2012. If the passenger motor vehicle insurers remain listed, they must 
submit reports by each subsequent October 25. We are proposing to add 
and remove several insurers from relevant appendices.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 33112, Insurer reports and information, NHTSA 
requires certain passenger motor vehicle insurers to file an annual 
report with the agency. Each insurer's report includes information 
about thefts and recoveries of motor vehicles, the rating rules used by 
the insurer to establish premiums for comprehensive coverage, the 
actions taken by the insurer to reduce such premiums and the actions 
taken by the insurer to reduce or deter theft. Under the agency's 
regulation, 49 CFR part 544, the following insurers are subject to the 
reporting requirements:
    (1) Issuers of motor vehicle insurance policies whose total 
premiums account for 1 percent or more of the total premiums of motor 
vehicle insurance issued within the United States;
    (2) Issuers of motor vehicle insurance policies whose premiums 
account for 10 percent or more of total premiums written within any one 
state; and
    (3) Rental and leasing companies with a fleet of 20 or more 
vehicles not covered by theft insurance policies issued by insurers of 
motor vehicles, other than any governmental entity.
    Pursuant to its statutory exemption authority, the agency exempted 
certain passenger motor vehicle insurers from the reporting 
requirements.

A. Small Insurers of Passenger Motor Vehicles

    Section 33112(f)(2) provides that the agency shall exempt small 
insurers of passenger motor vehicles if NHTSA finds that such 
exemptions will not significantly affect the validity or usefulness of 
the information in the reports, either nationally or on a state-by-
state basis.
    The term ``small insurer'' is defined, in Section 33112(f)(1)(A) 
and (B), as an insurer whose premiums for motor vehicle insurance 
issued directly or through an affiliate, including pooling arrangements 
established under state law or regulation for the issuance of motor 
vehicle insurance, account for less than 1 percent of the total 
premiums for all forms of motor vehicle insurance issued by insurers 
within the United States. However, that section also stipulates that if 
an insurance company satisfies this definition of a ``small insurer,'' 
but accounts for 10 percent or more of the total premiums for all motor 
vehicle insurance issued in a particular state, the insurer must report 
about its operations in that state.
    In the final rule establishing the insurer reports requirement (52 
FR 59; January 2, 1987), 49 CFR Part 544, NHTSA exercised its exemption 
authority by listing in Appendix A each insurer that must report 
because it had at least 1 percent of the motor vehicle insurance 
premiums nationally. Listing the insurers subject to reporting, instead 
of each insurer exempted from reporting because it had less than 1 
percent of the premiums nationally, is administratively simpler since 
the former group is much smaller than the latter. In Appendix B, NHTSA 
lists those insurers required to report for particular states because 
each insurer had a 10 percent or greater market share of motor vehicle 
premiums in those states. In the January 1987 final rule, the agency 
stated that it would update Appendices A and B annually. NHTSA updates 
the appendices based on data voluntarily provided by insurance 
companies to A.M. Best.\1\ A.M. Best publishes in its State/Line Report 
each spring. The agency uses the data to determine the insurers' market 
shares nationally and in each state.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A.M. Best Company is a well-recognized source of insurance 
company ratings and information. 49 U.S.C. 33112(i) authorizes NHTSA 
to consult with public and private organizations as necessary.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Self-Insured Rental and Leasing Companies

    In addition, upon making certain determinations, NHTSA grants 
exemptions to self-insurers, i.e., any person who has a fleet of 20 or 
more motor vehicles (other than any governmental entity) used for 
rental or lease whose vehicles are not covered by theft insurance 
policies issued by insurers of passenger motor vehicles, 49 U.S.C. 
33112(b)(1) and (f). Under 49 U.S.C. 33112(e)(1) and (2), NHTSA may 
exempt a self-insurer from reporting, if the agency determines:
    (1) The cost of preparing and furnishing such reports is excessive 
in relation to the size of the business of the insurer; and 33112(e)(1) 
and (2),
    (2) The insurer's report will not significantly contribute to 
carrying out the purposes of Chapter 331.
    In a final rule published June 22, 1990 (55 FR 25606), the agency 
granted a class exemption to all companies that rent or lease fewer 
than 50,000 vehicles, because it believed that the largest companies' 
reports sufficiently represent the theft experience of rental and 
leasing companies. NHTSA concluded that smaller rental and leasing 
companies' reports do not significantly contribute to carrying out 
NHTSA's statutory obligations and that exempting such companies will 
relieve an unnecessary burden on them. As a result of the June 1990 
final rule, the agency added Appendix C, consisting of an annually 
updated list of the self-insurers subject to Part 544. Following the 
same approach as in Appendix A, NHTSA included, in Appendix C, each of 
the self-insurers subject to reporting instead of the self-insurers 
which are exempted.
    NHTSA updates Appendix C based primarily on information from 
Automotive Fleet Magazine and Auto Rental News.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Automotive Fleet Magazine and Auto Rental News are 
publications that provide information on the size of fleets and 
market share of rental and leasing companies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

C. When a Listed Insurer Must File a Report

    Under Part 544, as long as an insurer is listed, it must file 
reports on or before October 25 of each year. Thus, any insurer listed 
in the appendices must file a report before October 25, and by each 
succeeding October 25, absent an amendment removing the insurer's name 
from the appendices.

[[Page 28345]]

II. Proposal

1. Insurers of Passenger Motor Vehicles

    Appendix A lists insurers that must report because each had 1 
percent of the motor vehicle insurance premiums on a national basis. 
The list was last amended in a final rule published on July 13, 2011 
(76 FR 41138). Based on the 2009 calendar year data market shares from 
A.M. Best, NHTSA proposes to remove American International Group from 
Appendix A and add California State Auto Group to Appendix A.
    Each of the 17 insurers listed in Appendix A are required to file a 
report before October 25, 2012, setting forth the information required 
by Part 544 for each State in which it did business in the 2009 
calendar year. As long as these 17 insurers remain listed, they will be 
required to submit reports by each subsequent October 25 for the 
calendar year ending slightly less than 3 years before.
    Appendix B lists insurers required to report for particular States 
for calendar year 2009, because each insurer had a 10 percent or 
greater market share of motor vehicle premiums in those States. Based 
on the 2009 calendar year data for market shares from A.M. Best, we 
propose to make no change to Appendix B.
    The eight remaining insurers listed in Appendix B are required to 
report on their calendar year 2009 activities in every State where they 
had a 10 percent or greater market share. These reports must be filed 
by October 25, 2012, and set forth the information required by Part 
544. As long as these eight insurers remain listed, they would be 
required to submit reports on or before each subsequent October 25 for 
the calendar year ending slightly less than 3 years before.

2. Rental and Leasing Companies

    Appendix C lists rental and leasing companies required to file 
reports. NHTSA proposes to make no change to Appendix C.
    Each of the remaining five companies (including franchisees and 
licensees) listed in Appendix C are required to file reports for 
calendar year 2009 no later than October 25, 2012, and set forth the 
information required by Part 544. As long as those five companies 
remain listed, they would be required to submit reports before each 
subsequent October 25 for the calendar year ending slightly less than 3 
years before.

III. Regulatory Impacts

1. Costs and Other Impacts

    This notice has not been reviewed under Executive Order 12866. 
NHTSA has considered the impact of this proposed rule and determined 
that the action is not ``significant'' within the meaning of the 
Department of Transportation's regulatory policies and procedures. This 
proposed rule implements the agency's policy of ensuring that all 
insurance companies that are statutorily eligible for exemption from 
the insurer reporting requirements are in fact exempted from those 
requirements. Only those companies that are not statutorily eligible 
for an exemption are required to file reports.
    NHTSA does not believe that this proposed rule, reflecting current 
data, affects the impacts described in the final regulatory evaluation 
prepared for the final rule establishing Part 544 (52 FR 59; January 2, 
1987). Accordingly, a separate regulatory evaluation has not been 
prepared for this rulemaking action. The cost estimates in the 1987 
final regulatory evaluation should be adjusted for inflation, using the 
Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index for 2012 (see http://www.bls.gov/cpi). The agency estimates that the cost of compliance is 
$50,000 (1987 dollars) for any insurer added to Appendix A, $20,000 
(1987 dollars) for any insurer added to Appendix B, and $5,770 (1987 
dollars) for any insurer added to Appendix C. If this proposed rule is 
made final, for Appendix A, the agency would propose to remove and add 
one company, for Appendix B, the agency would propose to make no 
change, and for Appendix C, the agency would propose to make no change. 
The agency estimates that the net effect of this proposal, if made 
final, would have no cost to insurers as a group.
    Interested persons may wish to examine the 1987 final regulatory 
evaluation. Copies of that evaluation were placed in Docket No. T86-01; 
Notice 2. Any interested person may obtain a copy of this evaluation by 
writing to NHTSA, Technical Reference Division, 1201 New Jersey Avenue 
SE., East Building, Ground Floor, Room E12-100, Washington, DC 20590, 
or by calling (202) 366-2588.

2. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The information collection requirements in this proposed rule were 
submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the 
requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). 
This collection of information is assigned OMB Control Number 2127-0547 
(``Insurer Reporting Requirements''). This collection of information is 
approved for use through April 30, 2015, and the agency will seek to 
extend the approval afterwards. The existing information collection 
indicates that the number of respondents for this collection is thirty, 
however, the actual number of respondents fluctuate from year to year. 
Therefore, because the number of respondents required to report for 
this final rule does not exceed the number of respondents indicated in 
the existing information collection, the agency does not believe that 
an amendment to the existing information collection is necessary.

3. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The agency also considered the effects of this rulemaking under the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). I certify that 
this proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. The rationale for the 
certification is that none of the companies proposed for Appendices A, 
B, or C are construed to be a small entity within the definition of the 
RFA. ``Small insurer'' is defined, in part under 49 U.S.C. 33112, as 
any insurer whose premiums for all forms of motor vehicle insurance 
account for less than 1 percent of the total premiums for all forms of 
motor vehicle insurance issued by insurers within the United States, or 
any insurer whose premiums within any State, account for less than 10 
percent of the total premiums for all forms of motor vehicle insurance 
issued by insurers within the State. This notice would exempt all 
insurers meeting those criteria. Any insurer too large to meet those 
criteria is not a small entity. In addition, in this rulemaking, the 
agency proposes to exempt all ``self insured rental and leasing 
companies'' that have fleets of fewer than 50,000 vehicles. Any self-
insured rental and leasing company too large to meet that criterion is 
not a small entity.

4. Federalism

    This action has been analyzed according to the principles and 
criteria contained in Executive Order 12612, and it has been determined 
that the proposed rule does not have sufficient federalism implications 
to warrant the preparation of a Federalism Assessment.

5. Environmental Impacts

    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, NHTSA has 
considered the environmental impacts of this proposed rule and 
determined that it would not have a significant

[[Page 28346]]

impact on the quality of the human environment.

6. Regulation Identifier Number (RIN)

    The Department of Transportation assigns a regulation identifier 
number (RIN) to each regulatory action listed in the Unified Agenda of 
Federal Regulations. The Regulatory Information Service Center 
publishes the Unified Agenda in April and October of each year. You may 
use the RIN contained in the heading, at the beginning, of this 
document to find this action in the Unified Agenda.

7. Plain Language

    Executive Order 12866 and the President's memorandum of June 1, 
1998, require each agency to write all rules in plain language. 
Application of the principles of plain language includes consideration 
of the following questions:
     Have we organized the material to suit the public's needs?
     Are the requirements in the proposal clearly stated?
     Does the proposal contain technical language or jargon 
that is not clear?
     Would a different format (grouping and order of sections, 
use of headings, paragraphing) make the rule easier to understand?
     Would more (but shorter) sections be better?
     Could we improve clarity by adding tables, lists, or 
diagrams?
     What else could we do to make the proposal easier to 
understand?
    If you have any responses to these questions, you can forward them 
to me several ways:
    a. Mail: Carlita Ballard, Office of International Policy, Fuel 
Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., (West 
Building) Washington, DC 20590;
    b. Email: Carlita.Ballard@dot.gov; or
    c. Fax: (202) 493-2990.
