Background This rulemaking makes technical corrections to the regulations in appendix C of 23 CFR part 658 that govern length of trailers in Oregon and the length of permit duration in Nebraska. The regulations on LCV’s were frozen as of July 1, 1991, in accordance with Section 1023 of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) 1 but a provision was made available in 23 CFR 658.23(f) that requires the FHWA Administrator to review petitions to correct any errors in Appendix C. The States of Oregon and Nebraska have petitioned the Federal Highway Administrator to make corrections to items they found to be incorrect in accordance with 23 CFR 658.23(f), and certified those provisions were in effect as of July 1, 1991. Oregon Department of Transportation petitioned the FHWA Administrator that the section of Appendix C that describes operational conditions for triple trailers on Oregon’s Interstate highways is not accurate. Oregon’s law that was in effect at the time Appendix C was adopted, June 1, 1991, required only that the trailers be ‘‘* * * reasonably uniform in length,’’ rather than of ‘‘equal length’’ as stated in 1 Public Law 105–240, 105 Stat. 1914, 1951 (Dec. 18, 1991) (codified at 23 U.S.C. 127(d)). PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Appendix C. The substitution of language, ‘‘reasonably uniform in length,’’ for the current ‘‘of equal length,’’ will correct the language and bring it into conformance with Oregon statutes of that time.2 Nebraska Department of Roads petitioned the FHWA Administrator to change 120 days for the maximum duration of a permit, as currently written in Appendix C, to allow 150 days for the maximum permit time as included in Nebraska Statutes in July 1991. The substitution of 150 days for the current 120 days will correct the language and bring it into conformance with Nebraska statutes of that time.3 Rulemaking Analyses and Notice Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. The FHWA finds that notice and comment for this rule is unnecessary and contrary to the public interest because it will have no substantive impact, is technical in nature, and relates only to management, organization, procedure, and practice. The amendments to the rule are based upon the explicit language of statutes that were enacted subsequent to the promulgation of the rule. The FHWA does not anticipate receiving meaningful comments. States, local governments, motor carriers, and other transportation stakeholders rely upon the regulations corrected by this action. These corrections will reduce confusion 2 Oregon 3 Neb.

Accordingly, for the reasons listed above, the agencies find good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to waive notice and opportunity for comment. Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review), Executive Order 13563 (Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review), and DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures The FHWA has determined that this action is not a significant regulatory action within the meaning of Executive Order 12866 or significant within the meaning of DOT regulatory policies and procedures. This action complies with Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 to improve regulation. It is anticipated that the economic impact of this rulemaking will be minimal. This rule only makes minor corrections that will not in any way alter the regulatory effect of 23 CFR part 658. Thus, this final rule will not adversely affect, in a material way, any sector of the economy. In addition, these changes will not interfere with any action taken or planned by another agency and will not materially alter the budgetary impact of any entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES1 Regulatory Flexibility Act In compliance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96–354, 5 U.S.C. 60l–612) FHWA has evaluated the effects of this action on small entities and has determined that the action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This final rule will not make any substantive changes to our regulations or in the way that our regulations affect small entities; it merely corrects technical errors. For this reason, the FHWA certifies that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This rule does not impose unfunded mandates as defined by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4, March 22, 1995, 109 Stat. 48). This rule does not impose any requirements on State, local, or tribal governments, or the private sector and, thus, will not require those entities to expend any funds. Executive Order 13132 (Federalism) This action has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in Executive Order 13132, and FHWA has determined that this action does not have sufficient VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:27 May 30, 2012 Jkt 226001 federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism assessment. The FHWA has also determined that this action does not preempt any State law or State regulation or affect the States’ ability to discharge traditional State governmental functions. Executive Order 12372 (Intergovernmental Review) The regulations implementing Executive Order 12372 regarding intergovernmental consultation on Federal programs and activities apply to these programs. Paperwork Reduction Act This action does not create any new information collection requirements for which a Paperwork Reduction Act submission to the Office of Management and Budget would be needed under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520. National Environmental Policy Act The FHWA has analyzed this action for the purpose of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4347) and has determined that this action will not have any effect on the quality of the environment. Executive Order 13175 (Tribal Consultation) The FHWA has analyzed this action under Executive Order 13175, dated November 6, 2000, and concluded that this rule will not have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes; will not impose substantial direct compliance costs on Indian tribal government; and will not preempt tribal law. There are no requirements set forth in this rule that directly affect one or more Indian tribes. Therefore, a tribal summary impact statement is not required. Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform) This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Executive Order 13045 (Protection of Children) Under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health and Safety Risks, this final rule is not economically significant and does not involve an environmental risk to health and safety that may disproportionally affect children. PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Executive Order 12630 (Taking of Private Property) This final rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Executive Order 13211 (Energy Effects) This final rule has been analyzed under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. The FHWA has determined that it is not a significant energy action under that order because it is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866 and this final rule is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This final rule amends HUD’s regulations for the Section 8 Management Assessment program (SEMAP), by revising the process by which HUD measures and verifies performance under the SEMAP lease-up indicator. Specifically, HUD amends the existing regulation to reflect that assessment of a public housing agency’s (PHA) leasing indicator will be based on a calendar year cycle, rather than a fiscal year cycle, which would increase administrative efficiencies for PHAs. This rule also clarifies that units assisted under the voucher homeownership option or occupied under a project-based housing assistance payments (HAP) contract are included in the assessment of PHA units leased. DATES: Effective: July 2, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laure Rawson, Director, Housing Voucher Management and Operations Division, Office of Public Housing and Voucher Programs, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW., Room 4216, Washington, DC 20410, telephone number 202–402– 2425. SUMMARY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES1 I. Background—Proposed Rule On September 23, 2011, HUD published in the Federal Register a proposed rule, at 76 FR 59069, that proposed to revise the process by which HUD measures and verifies performance under the SEMAP lease-up indicator. HUD initiated that proposal to align the SEMAP lease-up indicator with the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:27 May 30, 2012 Jkt 226001 process for measuring voucher management system leasing and cost data, which by statute must be done on a calendar year cycle. As provided in the preamble to the proposed rule, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005 (Pub. L. 108– 447, 118 Stat. 2809, approved December 8, 2004) addressed the subject of voucher management system leasing and cost data. The 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act stated, in relevant part, that ‘‘the Secretary for the calendar year 2005 funding cycle shall renew such contracts for each public housing agency based on verified Voucher Management System (VMS) leasing and cost data.’’ (See 118 Stat. 3295.) Following enactment of the 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act, the Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) issued PIH Notice 2005–1, which provides that ‘‘PHAs will receive monthly disbursements from HUD on the basis of the PHA’s calculated calendar year budget.’’ Since 2005, consistent with the 2005 appropriations act and the implementing notice, and consistent with subsequent appropriations acts, HUD has provided PHAs with renewal funding for their Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program on a calendar year basis. At the beginning of each calendar year, PHAs are notified of their funding amounts for the calendar year, and they plan their voucher issuance and leasing according to that funding cycle. As the preamble to the proposed rule further noted, in contrast to the process for measuring VMS leasing and cost data, the SEMAP lease-up indicator continues to measure a PHA’s lease-up rate on a fiscal year basis. The use of a calendar year for renewal funding, while using a fiscal year system for SEMAP measurements, has resulted in increased complexity for PHAs administering the HCV program and programmatic inefficiency. To eliminate such complexity, and reduce inefficiency in the HCV program resulting from two processes based on different periods of measurement, HUD, through the September 23, 2011, rule, proposed to amend the SEMAP regulations to provide for the SEMAP lease-up indicator to be measured based on a calendar year funding cycle, rather than the existing fiscal year cycle. The September 23, 2011, rule also proposed to clarify that units assisted under the voucher homeownership option or occupied under a project-based voucher (PBV) housing assistance payments (HAP) contract are included in the assessment of PHA units leased. These homeownership units and project-based voucher units have always been PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 32015 included in the assessment, but this is not explicit in current regulations. II. Public Comments on Proposed Rule At the close of public comment period on October 24, 2011, HUD received five public comments. The commenters consisted of two individuals, two PHAs and an independent nonprofit institute. With the exception of one of the PHAs, the commenters supported the changes proposed by the September 23, 2011, rule. The two individual commenters expressed their support for the rule without proposing any additional changes, with one of the commenters stating that the change was long overdue. The other two commenters supporting the rule proposed additional changes, and the PHA that did not favor the change appears to have misunderstood some of the program requirements. In response to public comment, HUD revised the proposed rule at this final rule stage, to clarify what allocated budget authority includes. With the exception of this change, no further changes were made. The following addresses the comments raised by the latter three commenters. Comment: The Proposed Change Will Not Increase Efficiency. One of the PHA commenters stated that it is not clear how HUD’s proposed regulatory change to the SEMAP lease-up indicator would be beneficial to PHAs, since the financial settlement is due at the end of the PHA’s fiscal year. The commenter stated that the proposed rule missed the connection between fiscal year end and utilization. The commenter stated that, as a PHA, it has to track HCVs and funding on a fiscal year basis because it cannot over-utilize unit months at fiscal year end, since it would not be paid by HUD for those months. The commenter stated that by changing this indicator, the PHA will now have to perform double tracking at fiscal year-end for fiscal year-end settlement, and at calendar year-end for SEMAP, which is actually more work, and that all other SEMAP measures would be tracked on a fiscal year basis, creating more complexity and confusion. The commenter stated that the only way this change would be beneficial is if HUD moved the year end settlement for PHAs from fiscal year to calendar year end and moved all the SEMAP indicators to calendar year. HUD Response: HUD has not required year-end settlement statements from PHAs ever since the issuance of PIH Notice 2006–3 (section 5), which rescinded the requirement to submit form HUD–52681, because the relevant information was being captured in the E:\FR\FM\31MYR1.SGM 31MYR1

Background

    This rulemaking makes technical corrections to the regulations in 
appendix C of 23 CFR part 658 that govern length of trailers in Oregon 
and the length of permit duration in Nebraska. The regulations on LCV's 
were frozen as of July 1, 1991, in accordance with Section 1023 of the 
Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) \1\ but a 
provision was made available in 23 CFR 658.23(f) that requires the FHWA 
Administrator to review petitions to correct any errors in Appendix C. 
The States of Oregon and Nebraska have petitioned the Federal Highway 
Administrator to make corrections to items they found to be incorrect 
in accordance with 23 CFR 658.23(f), and certified those provisions 
were in effect as of July 1, 1991.

(codified at 23 U.S.C. 127(d)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Oregon Department of Transportation petitioned the FHWA 
Administrator that the section of Appendix C that describes operational 
conditions for triple trailers on Oregon's Interstate highways is not 
accurate. Oregon's law that was in effect at the time Appendix C was 
adopted, June 1, 1991, required only that the trailers be ``* * * 
reasonably uniform in length,'' rather than of ``equal length'' as 
stated in Appendix C. The substitution of language, ``reasonably 
uniform in length,'' for the current ``of equal length,'' will correct 
the language and bring it into conformance with Oregon statutes of that 
time.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Oregon Vehicle Code 812.210 (1991-1992).

    Nebraska Department of Roads petitioned the FHWA Administrator to 
change 120 days for the maximum duration of a permit, as currently 
written in Appendix C, to allow 150 days for the maximum permit time as 
included in Nebraska Statutes in July 1991. The substitution of 150 
days for the current 120 days will correct the language and bring it 
into conformance with Nebraska statutes of that time.\3\

Rulemaking Analyses and Notice

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. The FHWA finds that notice and comment for this 
rule is unnecessary and contrary to the public interest because it will 
have no substantive impact, is technical in nature, and relates only to 
management, organization, procedure, and practice. The amendments to 
the rule are based upon the explicit language of statutes that were 
enacted subsequent to the promulgation of the rule. The FHWA does not 
anticipate receiving meaningful comments. States, local governments, 
motor carriers, and other transportation stakeholders rely upon the 
regulations corrected by this action. These corrections will reduce 
confusion

[[Page 32014]]

for these entities and should not be unnecessarily delayed. 
Accordingly, for the reasons listed above, the agencies find good cause 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to waive notice and opportunity for 
comment.

Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review), Executive Order 
13563 (Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review), and DOT Regulatory 
Policies and Procedures

    The FHWA has determined that this action is not a significant 
regulatory action within the meaning of Executive Order 12866 or 
significant within the meaning of DOT regulatory policies and 
procedures. This action complies with Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 
to improve regulation. It is anticipated that the economic impact of 
this rulemaking will be minimal. This rule only makes minor corrections 
that will not in any way alter the regulatory effect of 23 CFR part 
658. Thus, this final rule will not adversely affect, in a material 
way, any sector of the economy. In addition, these changes will not 
interfere with any action taken or planned by another agency and will 
not materially alter the budgetary impact of any entitlements, grants, 
user fees, or loan programs.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    In compliance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354, 
5 U.S.C. 60l-612) FHWA has evaluated the effects of this action on 
small entities and has determined that the action will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
This final rule will not make any substantive changes to our 
regulations or in the way that our regulations affect small entities; 
it merely corrects technical errors. For this reason, the FHWA 
certifies that this action will not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    This rule does not impose unfunded mandates as defined by the 
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4, March 22, 1995, 
109 Stat. 48). This rule does not impose any requirements on State, 
local, or tribal governments, or the private sector and, thus, will not 
require those entities to expend any funds.

Executive Order 13132 (Federalism)

    This action has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and 
criteria contained in Executive Order 13132, and FHWA has determined 
that this action does not have sufficient federalism implications to 
warrant the preparation of a federalism assessment. The FHWA has also 
determined that this action does not preempt any State law or State 
regulation or affect the States' ability to discharge traditional State 
governmental functions.

Executive Order 12372 (Intergovernmental Review)

    The regulations implementing Executive Order 12372 regarding 
intergovernmental consultation on Federal programs and activities apply 
to these programs.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This action does not create any new information collection 
requirements for which a Paperwork Reduction Act submission to the 
Office of Management and Budget would be needed under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520.

National Environmental Policy Act

    The FHWA has analyzed this action for the purpose of the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4347) and has 
determined that this action will not have any effect on the quality of 
the environment.

Executive Order 13175 (Tribal Consultation)

    The FHWA has analyzed this action under Executive Order 13175, 
dated November 6, 2000, and concluded that this rule will not have 
substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes; will not 
impose substantial direct compliance costs on Indian tribal government; 
and will not preempt tribal law. There are no requirements set forth in 
this rule that directly affect one or more Indian tribes. Therefore, a 
tribal summary impact statement is not required.

Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform)

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Executive Order 13045 (Protection of Children)

    Under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from 
Environmental Health and Safety Risks, this final rule is not 
economically significant and does not involve an environmental risk to 
health and safety that may disproportionally affect children.

Executive Order 12630 (Taking of Private Property)

    This final rule will not effect a taking of private property or 
otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, 
Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected 
Property Rights.

Executive Order 13211 (Energy Effects)

    This final rule has been analyzed under Executive Order 13211, 
Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. The FHWA has determined that it is not a 
significant energy action under that order because it is not a 
significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866 and this 
final rule is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the 
supply, distribution, or use of energy.

Regulation Identification Number

    A regulation identification number (RIN) is assigned 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. The RINs contained in the heading of 
this document can be used to cross reference this action with the 
Unified Agenda.
