ACTION: Technical amendment; final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Institute of Museum and Library amends its grants regulations by removing outdated regulations and making certain technical amendments to reflect Congress’ reauthorization of the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the Museum and Library Services Act of 2010, as further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011. The amendments also reorganize certain regulations to provide greater clarity for agency applicants and grantees. DATES: Effective June 11, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nancy E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 I. Technical Amendments and Removal of the Institute’s Outdated Regulations IMLS amends 45 CFR part 1180 to remove outdated regulations and make minor technical amendments to reflect Congress’ reauthorization of the Institute of Museum and Library Services with the Museum and Library Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111– 340 (December 22, 2010), as further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112–166 (August 10, 2012). These revisions are meant to fulfill the Institute’s responsibility to its eligible grant applicants by ensuring that all regulations, policies, and procedures are up-to-date. The regulations being removed include regulations relating to programs and requirements no longer in existence at the Institute as a result of both agency practice and the Museum and Library Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111–340 (December 22, 2010), as further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112–166 (August 10, 2012). In the interests of economy of administration, and because all of the regulations to be removed are outdated and the technical amendments are minor, they are included in one rulemaking vehicle. Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. There is good cause for making this action final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because the rule contains minor technical amendments that provide agency applicants and grantees with greater clarity and additional flexibility. II. Matters of Regulatory Procedure Regulatory Planning and Review (E.O. 12866) Under Executive Order 12866, the Institute must determine whether the regulatory action is ‘‘significant’’ and therefore subject to OMB review and the requirements of the Executive Order. The Order defines a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ as one that is likely to result in a rule that may: (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or tribal E:\FR\FM\11JNR1.SGM 11JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 112 / Tuesday, June 11, 2013 / Rules and Regulations and tribal governments, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more as adjusted for inflation) in any one year. Regulatory Flexibility Act Because this rule removes outdated regulations and make certain technical amendments, the Institute has determined in Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) review that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it simply makes technical amendments and removes outdated regulations. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES governments or communities; (2) create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency; (3) materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients thereof; or (4) raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the President’s priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive Order. The rule removes a number of outdated regulations and makes technical amendments to reflect Congress’ reauthorization of the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the Museum and Library Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111– 340 (December 22, 2010), as further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112–166 (August 10, 2012). As such, it does not impose a compliance burden on the economy generally or on any person or entity. Accordingly, this rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ from an economic standpoint, and it does not otherwise create any inconsistencies or budgetary impacts to any other agency or Federal Program. In accordance with Executive Order 13132, this rule does not have federalism implications that warrant the preparation of a federalism assessment. Paperwork Reduction Act This rule is exempt from the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act, since it removes existing outdated regulations and makes only technical amendments to reflect Congress’ reauthorization of the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the Museum and Library Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111– 340 (December 22, 2010), as further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112–166 (August 10, 2012). An OMB form 83–1 is not required. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act For purposes of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. chapter 25, subchapter II), this rule will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments and will not result in increased expenditures by State, local, VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:08 Jun 10, 2013 Jkt 229001 Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. This rule: a. Does not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more. b. Will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government agencies, or geographic regions. c. Does not have significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises. Takings (E.O. 12630) In accordance with Executive Order 12630, the rule does not have significant takings implications. No rights, property or compensation has been, or will be, taken. A takings implication assessment is not required. Federalism (E.O. 13132) Civil Justice Reform (E.O. 12988) In accordance with Executive Order 12988, the Institute has determined that this rule does not unduly burden the judicial system and meets the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order. Consultation with Indian tribes (E.O. 13175) In accordance with Executive Order 13175, the Institute has evaluated this rule and determined that it has no potential negative effects on federally recognized Indian tribes.

Summary of the Report and Order 1. The Report and Order modified the definition of ‘‘auditory assistance device’’ in part 15 of the Commission’s rules to expand the permissible uses of these devices beyond solely providing auditory assistance to persons with disabilities (e.g., amplification of sounds for the hard of hearing and audio description for the blind) to include simultaneous translation for anyone at any location. This action harmonized the part 15 definition of ‘‘auditory assistance device’’ with the definition of ‘‘auditory assistance communications’’ in part 95 of the Commission’s rules. Under this expanded definition, part 15 auditory assistance devices that operate in the 72–73 MHz, 74.6–74.8 MHz, and 75.2–76 MHz (72–76 MHz) bands on an unlicensed basis may provide auditory assistance or simultaneous translation, or both, to anyone at any location. 2. The Report and Order also lowered the limit for part 15 auditory assistance devices’ unwanted emissions to the limits that are provided in § 15.209 of the Commission’s rules to help reduce the likelihood that the unwanted emissions from increased use of these devices for simultaneous translation will degrade the reception of very high frequency television (VHF TV) channels 2–4 (54–72 MHz) and 5–6 (76–88 MHz) and help improve the reception of VHF TV service. 3. On September 9, 2011, the Commission adopted an Order and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (Auditory Assistance Device NPRM) in this proceeding in which it proposed to modify the part 15 definition of ‘‘auditory assistance device’’ to expand the permissible uses of these devices to include simultaneous language interpretation by any person at any location, in the same manner as permitted under part 95 for Low Power Radio Service stations that operate in the 216–217 MHz band. The Commission took this action in response to a petition for declaratory ruling filed by Williams Sound Corporation (Williams Sound), a provider of wireless auditory assistance devices. 4. In the Auditory Assistance Device NPRM, the Commission sought comment on the advantages and disadvantages and potential benefits of expanding the permissible uses of part 15 auditory assistance devices and any PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 qualitative or quantitative costs associated with this proposal. It also sought comment on whether increased use of part 15 auditory assistance devices for simultaneous language interpretation would increase the potential for harmful interference to authorized services in the 72–76 MHz and adjacent bands and whether additional safeguards or changes to the technical requirements for these devices would be necessary to prevent harmful interference to those services. In addition, the Commission sought comment on whether a more restrictive limit for part 15 auditory assistance devices’ out-of-band emissions is needed to prevent harmful interference to authorized services in the 72–76 MHz and adjacent bands and improve the reception of VHF TV channels 2–6. 5. Part 15 auditory assistance devices may operate in a full duplex mode of operation using necessary bandwidths up to 200 kilohertz wide. All fundamental emissions must be contained wholly within the 72–73 MHz, 74.6–74.8 MHz, and 75.2–76 MHz bands with a maximum field strength of 80 millivolts per meter (mV/m) measured at a distance of 3 meters, which is equivalent to a maximum effective radiated power (ERP) of 1.2 milliwatts (mW). The field strength of any unwanted emissions (emissions outside of the 200 kilohertz necessary bandwidth) must not exceed 1,500 microvolts per meter (mV/m) measured at a distance of 3 meters, which is equivalent to an ERP of 0.4 microwatts (mW). In the Auditory Assistance Device NPRM, the Commission asked what outof-band emissions limit would be appropriate—the § 15.209 limit, the unlicensed TV bands device limit, or some other limit—what would be an appropriate transition period for compliance, and whether currently approved part 15 auditory assistance devices should be grandfathered for a limited time or permanently. In the Report and Order, the Commission noted that although it used the term ‘‘out-of-band’’ emissions in the Auditory Assistance Devices NPRM when referring to emissions outside of the frequency bands in which the auditory assistance devices operate (paras. 20 and 21), the correct term to describe the emissions outside of the necessary bandwidth of the transmitting system is ‘‘unwanted’’ emissions, and so it used the term ‘‘unwanted’’ emissions where appropriate throughout the Report and Order.

Technical Amendments To Reflect the Authorizing Legislation of 
the Institute of Museum and Library Services

AGENCY: Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), NFAH.

ACTION: Technical amendment; final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Institute of Museum and Library amends its grants 
regulations by removing outdated regulations and making certain 
technical amendments to reflect Congress' reauthorization of the 
Institute of Museum and Library Services under the Museum and Library 
Services Act of 2010, as further amended by the Presidential 
Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011. The amendments 
also reorganize certain regulations to provide greater clarity for 
agency applicants and grantees.

DATES: Effective June 11, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Technical Amendments and Removal of the Institute's Outdated 
Regulations

    IMLS amends 45 CFR part 1180 to remove outdated regulations and 
make minor technical amendments to reflect Congress' reauthorization of 
the Institute of Museum and Library Services with the Museum and 
Library Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111-340 (December 22, 2010), 
as further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and 
Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112-166 (August 10, 2012). These 
revisions are meant to fulfill the Institute's responsibility to its 
eligible grant applicants by ensuring that all regulations, policies, 
and procedures are up-to-date. The regulations being removed include 
regulations relating to programs and requirements no longer in 
existence at the Institute as a result of both agency practice and the 
Museum and Library Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111-340 (December 
22, 2010), as further amended by the Presidential Appointment 
Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112-166 (August 10, 
2012). In the interests of economy of administration, and because all 
of the regulations to be removed are outdated and the technical 
amendments are minor, they are included in one rulemaking vehicle. 
Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary 
to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing 
notice and an opportunity for public comment. There is good cause for 
making this action final without prior proposal and opportunity for 
comment because the rule contains minor technical amendments that 
provide agency applicants and grantees with greater clarity and 
additional flexibility.

II. Matters of Regulatory Procedure

Regulatory Planning and Review (E.O. 12866)

    Under Executive Order 12866, the Institute must determine whether 
the regulatory action is ``significant'' and therefore subject to OMB 
review and the requirements of the Executive Order. The Order defines a 
``significant regulatory action'' as one that is likely to result in a 
rule that may: (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million 
or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of 
the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public 
health or safety, or State, local, or tribal

[[Page 34921]]

governments or communities; (2) create a serious inconsistency or 
otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency; 
(3) materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user 
fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients 
thereof; or (4) raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal 
mandates, the President's priorities, or the principles set forth in 
the Executive Order.
    The rule removes a number of outdated regulations and makes 
technical amendments to reflect Congress' reauthorization of the 
Institute of Museum and Library Services under the Museum and Library 
Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111-340 (December 22, 2010), as 
further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and 
Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112-166 (August 10, 2012). As 
such, it does not impose a compliance burden on the economy generally 
or on any person or entity. Accordingly, this rule is not a 
``significant regulatory action'' from an economic standpoint, and it 
does not otherwise create any inconsistencies or budgetary impacts to 
any other agency or Federal Program.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because this rule removes outdated regulations and make certain 
technical amendments, the Institute has determined in Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) review that this rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities because it simply makes technical amendments and removes 
outdated regulations.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This rule is exempt from the requirements of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act, since it removes existing outdated regulations and makes 
only technical amendments to reflect Congress' reauthorization of the 
Institute of Museum and Library Services under the Museum and Library 
Services Act of 2010, Public Law 111-340 (December 22, 2010), as 
further amended by the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and 
Streamlining Act of 2011, Public Law 112-166 (August 10, 2012). An OMB 
form 83-1 is not required.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    For purposes of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 
chapter 25, subchapter II), this rule will not significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments and will not result in increased 
expenditures by State, local, and tribal governments, or by the private 
sector, of $100 million or more as adjusted for inflation) in any one 
year.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA)

    This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. This rule:
    a. Does not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or 
more.
    b. Will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for 
consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government 
agencies, or geographic regions.
    c. Does not have significant adverse effects on competition, 
employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of 
U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises.

Takings (E.O. 12630)

    In accordance with Executive Order 12630, the rule does not have 
significant takings implications. No rights, property or compensation 
has been, or will be, taken. A takings implication assessment is not 
required.

Federalism (E.O. 13132)

    In accordance with Executive Order 13132, this rule does not have 
federalism implications that warrant the preparation of a federalism 
assessment.

Civil Justice Reform (E.O. 12988)

    In accordance with Executive Order 12988, the Institute has 
determined that this rule does not unduly burden the judicial system 
and meets the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order.

Consultation with Indian tribes (E.O. 13175)

    In accordance with Executive Order 13175, the Institute has 
evaluated this rule and determined that it has no potential negative 
effects on federally recognized Indian tribes.

National Environmental Policy Act

    This rule does not constitute a major Federal action significantly 
affecting the quality of the human environment.
