Copies of contracts and Memoranda of Agreement must be available for inspection upon request; (viii) Include an operating budget for the Federal fiscal year with an estimate of the cost of operation for one or more years, according to the State’s approved SNAP-Ed Plan; (ix) Federal financial participation and allocation of grants. (A) Each State agency that submitted an approved fiscal year 2009 SNAP-Ed Plan will receive a 100 percent Federal grant each fiscal year to operate SNAP-Ed based on the State’s share of national SNAP-Ed expenditures for fiscal year 2009 as reported in February 2010. The grant requires no State contribution or match. The grant period of performance is two years and these funds are the only source of Federal funds available under the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, for SNAP nutrition education and obesity prevention services to States. Funds in excess of the grants are not eligible for SNAP Federal reimbursement; (B) A State agency’s receipt of its 100 percent Federal SNAP-Ed grant is contingent on FNS’ approval of the State agency’s SNAP-Ed Plan. If an adequate Plan is not submitted, FNS may reallocate a State agency’s grant among other State agencies with approved Plans; (C) States shall identify the uses of funding for local projects and show that the funding received shall remain under the administrative control of the State agency; (D) Annually, FNS will determine each State’s share of the funding provided for each fiscal year. The amount of funding provided in fiscal year 2011 was $375,000,000, and the amount of funding provided in each subsequent year is determined by adjusting the previous fiscal year’s amount to reflect any increases for the 12-month period ending the preceding June 30th in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the Department of Labor; (E) FNS will allocate the funding available each fiscal year for SNAP-Ed grants using the formula proscribed by law that factors in State shares of the base 2009 Federal expenditures, building progressively to a 50/50 weighting of expenditures to participation from fiscal year 2014 to fiscal year 2018 and beyond. The allocations to a State for SNAP-Ed grants will be: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:25 Apr 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 (1) For fiscal year 2013, in direct proportion to State expenditures for FFY 2009, as reported in February 2010; (2) For fiscal year 2014, 90 percent based on expenditures, plus 10 percent based on the State’s share of national SNAP participants for the 12-month period February 1, 2012 to January 31, 2013; (3) For fiscal year 2015, 80 percent based on expenditures, plus 20 percent based on the State’s share of national SNAP participants for the 12-month period February 1, 2013 to January 31, 2014; (4) For fiscal year 2016, 70 percent based on expenditures, plus 30 percent based on the State’s share of national SNAP participants for the 12-month period February 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015; (5) For fiscal year 2017, 60 percent based on expenditures, plus 40 percent based on the State’s share of national SNAP participants for the 12-month period February 1, 2015 to January 31, 2016; and, (6) For fiscal year 2018 and thereafter, 50 percent based on expenditures, plus 50 percent based on the State’s share of national SNAP participants for the previous 12-month period ending January 31; (F) If a participating State agency notifies FNS that it will not obligate or expend all of the funds allocated to it for a fiscal year under this section, FNS may reallocate the unobligated, unexpended funds to other participating State agencies that have approved SNAP-Ed Plans during the period for which the funding is available for new obligations at the Federal level. Reallocated funds received by a State will be considered part of its base 2009 allocation for the next fiscal year for the purpose of determining allocation; funds surrendered by a State shall not be considered part of it base 2009 allocation for the next fiscal year for the purpose of determining allocation. (x) Fiscal recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Each participating State agency must meet FNS fiscal recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Total SNAP-Ed expenditures are reported on the Financial Status Report (SF–425). States are expected to continue to collect and report State and private contributions to their SNAP-Ed activities through the Education Administration and Reporting System FNS–759; (xi) Additional information may be required of the State agency, on an as needed basis, regarding the type of nutrition education and obesity prevention activities offered and the characteristics of the target population PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 served, depending on the contents of the State’s SNAP-Ed Plan, to determine whether nutrition education goals are being met; (xii) The State agency must submit a SNAP-Ed Annual Report to FNS by November 30th of each year.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Direct Final Rule Adverse Comments

    NASA has determined this rulemaking meets the criteria for a direct 
final rule because it involves nonsubstantive changes to correct 
citations. No opposition to the changes and no significant adverse 
comments are expected. However, if the Agency receives a significant 
adverse comment, it will withdraw this direct final rule by publishing 
a notice in the Federal Register. A significant adverse comment is one 
that explains: (1) Why the direct final rule is inappropriate, 
including challenges to the rule's underlying premise or approach; or 
(2) why the direct final rule will be ineffective or unacceptable 
without a change. In determining whether a comment necessitates 
withdrawal of this direct final rule, NASA will consider whether it 
warrants a substantive response in a notice and comment process.

Background

    The Board, established on May 15, 1961, is authorized to act for 
and exercise the authority of the Administrator in cases involving 
requests for extraordinary contractual adjustments under the Act of 
August 28, 1958 (50 U.S.C. 1431-35), is continued in effect by this 
regulation. Subpart 3 was promulgated to consider and dispose of 
requests for extraordinary contractual adjustments by contractors of 
NASA. The Board references an obsolete internal NASA policy (NASA 
Management Instruction (NMI) 1152.5) that was cancelled September 30, 
1994, because it was considered to be a duplication of this regulation. 
Therefore, it should no longer be referenced in the regulation.

Statutory Authority

    The National Aeronautics and Space Act (the Space Act), 51 U.S.C. 
20113(a), authorizes the Administrator of NASA to make, promulgate, 
issue, rescind, and amend rules and regulations governing the manner of 
its operations and the exercise of the powers vested in it by law.

Regulatory Analysis

Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive 
Order 13563, Improvement Regulation and Regulation Review

    Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). EO 13563 
emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of 
reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This rule has been designated as ``not significant'' under section 3(f) 
of EO 12866.

Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires an 
agency to prepare an initial regulatory flexibility analysis to be 
published at the time the proposed rule is published. This requirement 
does not apply if the agency ``certifies that the rule will not, if 
promulgated, have a significant economic impact on a substantial number 
of small entities'' (5 U.S.C. 603). This rule removes an obsolete 
citation referenced in 14 CFR part 3 and, therefore, does not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act

    This direct final rule does not contain any information collection 
requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.).

Review Under EO 13132, Federalism

    EO 13132, ``Federalism,'' 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 1999) requires 
regulations be reviewed for Federalism effects on the institutional 
interest of states and local governments, and if the effects are 
sufficiently substantial, preparation of the Federal assessment is 
required to assist senior policy makers. The amendments will not have 
any substantial direct effects on State and local Governments within 
the meaning of the EO. Therefore, no Federalism assessment is required.
