Sex Offender Registration Amendments, 73558-73560 [2012-29636]

Download as PDF 73558 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 238 / Tuesday, December 11, 2012 / Proposed Rules proposed AD would also require ground-run functional checks within every 1,000 operating hours. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD would affect about 1,420 engines installed in helicopters of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 30 minutes per engine to perform a check of the engine’s tachometer unit cycle counting feature and that an average of 320 checks would be required per year. Based on the average annual operating hours for an engine, a 1,000 operating hour functional check would not be required for at least one year. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. No parts would be required. Based on these figures, we estimate the average total cost of the proposed AD on U.S. operators to perform checks of the tachometer cycle counting unit for a year, is $19,312,000. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. ‘‘Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs,’’ describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in ‘‘Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with Regulatory Findings We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify this proposed regulation: 1. Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; 2. Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Dec 10, 2012 Jkt 229001 3. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket.

Background CSOSA is responsible under the District of Columbia Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999, DC Law 13– 137, DC Official Code Sections 22–4001 et seq., for carrying out the sex offender registration functions in the District of Columbia, including verification of information maintained on sex offenders. In addition, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, (Pub. L. 109–248), provides a comprehensive set of minimum standards for sex offender registration and notification in the United States. SORNA is designed to strengthen and increase the effectiveness of sex offender registration and notification for the protection of the public and to reduce the risk that sex offenders could evade registration requirements or the consequences of registration violations. This amendment will allow CSOSA to better meet the requirements of the District of Columbia Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999 and SORNA. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with II. Statutory Authority The District of Columbia Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999 The District of Columbia Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999, DC Law 13– 137, DC Official Code Sections 22–4001 et seq., grants CSOSA the authority to adopt and implement procedures and requirements for verification of address information and other information required for registration.

L. 109–248), requires a sex offender to appear in person, allowing the jurisdiction to take a current photograph and verify the information in the sex offender registry on a scheduled frequency. Jurisdictions may require verification of registration information with greater frequency than that required by SORNA and may wish to include in their systems additional means of verification for registration information, such as mailing address verification forms to the registered residence address, requesting that the sex offender to sign and return a verification form, crosschecking information provided by the sex offender for inclusion in the registry against other records systems, and verifying home addresses through home visits. Jurisdictions are required to notify appropriate law enforcement agencies of failures by sex offenders to comply with registration requirements, and such registration violations must be reflected in the sex offender registry. SORNA requires that jurisdictions and the appropriate law enforcement agencies take any appropriate action to ensure compliance. Federal law enforcement resources, including those of the United States Marshals Service, are permitted to assist jurisdictions in locating and apprehending sex offenders who violate registration requirements. III. Request for Comments CSOSA invites comments to address its proposed rule amending its existing rule, permitting CSOSA to: (1) Verify addresses of sex offenders by conducting home visits on its own accord and with its law enforcement partners, and (2) clarify the schedule for verifying home addresses, even for those sex offenders who are required to register but are not under CSOSA’s supervision. 73559 responsibilities among the various levels of government.

In this rulemaking action, EPA is proposing to approve the PM2.5 redesignation request for the West Virginia portion of the ParkersburgMarietta Area. EPA is also proposing to approve the maintenance plan SIP revision that the State submitted in conjunction with its redesignation request. The maintenance plan provides for continued attainment of the 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS for 10 years after redesignation of the West Virginia portion of the Area. The maintenance plan includes an insignificance determination for the on-road motor vehicle contribution of PM2.5, nitrogen oxides (NOX), and sulfur dioxide (SO2) for the West Virginia portion of the Area for purposes of transportation conformity. EPA is proposing to find that West Virginia’s insignificance determination for transportation conformity is adequate.1 EPA is also proposing to find that the Area continues to attain the standard. This action to propose approval of the 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS redesignation request, maintenance plan, and insignificance determination for transportation conformity for the West Virginia portion of the Area is based on EPA’s determination that the Area has met the criteria for redesignation to attainment specified in the Clean Air Act (CAA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    CSOSA is responsible under the District of Columbia Sex Offender 
Registration Act of 1999, DC Law 13-137, DC Official Code Sections 22-
4001 et seq., for carrying out the sex offender registration functions 
in the District of Columbia, including verification of information 
maintained on sex offenders. In addition, the Sex Offender Registration 
and Notification Act (SORNA), Title I of the Adam Walsh Child 
Protection and Safety Act of 2006, (Pub. L. 109-248), provides a 
comprehensive set of minimum standards for sex offender registration 
and notification in the United States. SORNA is designed to strengthen 
and increase the effectiveness of sex offender registration and 
notification for the protection of the public and to reduce the risk 
that sex offenders could evade registration requirements or the 
consequences of registration violations. This amendment will allow 
CSOSA to better meet the requirements of the District of Columbia Sex 
Offender Registration Act of 1999 and SORNA.

II. Statutory Authority

The District of Columbia Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999

    The District of Columbia Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999, DC 
Law 13-137, DC Official Code Sections 22-4001 et seq., grants CSOSA the 
authority to adopt and implement procedures and requirements for 
verification of address information and other information required for 
registration.

The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA)

    The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), Title I 
of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, (Pub. L. 
109-248), requires a sex offender to appear in person, allowing the 
jurisdiction to take a current photograph and verify the information in 
the sex offender registry on a scheduled frequency. Jurisdictions may 
require verification of registration information with greater frequency 
than that required by SORNA and may wish to include in their systems 
additional means of verification for registration information, such as 
mailing address verification forms to the registered residence address, 
requesting that the sex offender to sign and return a verification 
form, crosschecking information provided by the sex offender for 
inclusion in the registry against other records systems, and verifying 
home addresses through home visits.
    Jurisdictions are required to notify appropriate law enforcement 
agencies of failures by sex offenders to comply with registration 
requirements, and such registration violations must be reflected in the 
sex offender registry. SORNA requires that jurisdictions and the 
appropriate law enforcement agencies take any appropriate action to 
ensure compliance. Federal law enforcement resources, including those 
of the United States Marshals Service, are permitted to assist 
jurisdictions in locating and apprehending sex offenders who violate 
registration requirements.

III. Request for Comments

    CSOSA invites comments to address its proposed rule amending its 
existing rule, permitting CSOSA to: (1) Verify addresses of sex 
offenders by conducting home visits on its own accord and with its law 
enforcement partners, and (2) clarify the schedule for verifying home 
addresses, even for those sex offenders who are required to register 
but are not under CSOSA's supervision.

IV. Matters of Regulatory Procedure

Executive Order 12866

    CSOSA has determined that this proposed rule is not a significant 
rule within the meaning of Executive Order 12866.

Executive Order 13132

    This rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, 
on the relationship between the national government and the States, or 
on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various 
levels of government. Under Executive Order 13132, this rule does not 
have sufficient federalism implications requiring a Federalism 
Assessment.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact upon 
a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b).

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    The rules will not cause State, local, or tribal governments, or 
the private sector, to spend $100,000,000 or more in any one year, and 
it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. No 
action under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 is necessary.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Subtitle E-
Congressional Review Act)

    These rules are not ``major rules'' as defined by Section 804 of 
the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 Subtitle 
E-Congressional Review Act), now codified at 5 U.S.C. 804(2). The rules 
will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or 
more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse 
effects on the ability of United States-based companies to compete with 
foreign-based companies. Moreover, these are rules of agency practice 
or procedure that do not substantially affect the rights or obligations 
of non-agency parties, and do not come within the meaning of the term 
``rule'' as used in Section 804(3)(C), now codified at 5 U.S.C. 
804(3)(C). Therefore, the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801 does 
not apply.

List of Subjects in 28 CFR Part 811

    Probation and parole.
