Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 241 / Tuesday, December 16, 2014 / Proposed Rules flexibility. This action has been designated as a ‘‘non-significant regulatory action’’ under § 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 and therefore has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Executive Order 13175 This action has been reviewed in accordance with the requirements of Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments. The review reveals that this regulation would not have substantial and direct effects on Tribal governments and would not have significant Tribal implications. Executive Order 12988 This proposed rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. It is not intended to have retroactive effect. There are no administrative procedures that must be exhausted prior to any judicial challenge to the provisions of this rule. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Regulatory Flexibility Act Pursuant to requirements set forth in the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601–612), AMS has considered the economic impact of this action on small entities and has determined that its implementation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small businesses. The purpose of the RFA is to fit regulatory actions to the scale of businesses subject to such actions so that small businesses will not be disproportionately burdened. There are approximately sixty cotton merchant organizations of various sizes active in trading U.S. cotton. Many of these cotton merchants are small businesses under the criteria established by the Small Business Administration (13 CFR 121.201). Small business entities that are merchants in the U.S. cotton industry are defined as having fewer than 100 employees. Amendments to the regulation concerning bona fide cotton spot market designations will not significantly affect small businesses as defined in the RFA because: (1) How spot prices are estimated are not expected to be impacted by this action; (2) Business practices of the U.S. cotton industry are not expected to change as a result of this action; (3) Costs associated with providing market news services will not be significantly changed by this action; (4) Market news services are paid for by appropriated funds, therefore users are not charged fees for the provision of the services. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Dec 15, 2014 Jkt 235001 74655 Paperwork Reduction Act List of Subjects in 7 CFR Part 27 In compliance with OMB regulations (5 CFR part 1320), which implement the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501), the information collection requirements contained in the provisions to be amended by this proposed rule have been previously approved by OMB and were assigned OMB control number 0581–0009, Cotton Classification and Market News Service. Commodity futures, cotton. For the reasons set forth in the preamble, 7 CFR part 27 is proposed to be amended as follows: Background Frm 00002 1. The authority citation for 7 CFR part 27 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 7 U.S.C. 15b, 7 U.S.C. 473b, 7 U.S.C. 1622(g). 2. In § 27.94, paragraph (a) is revised to read as follows: ■ The Secretary of Agriculture is authorized under the United States Cotton Futures Act (7 U.S.C. 15b) to designate at least five bona fide cotton spot markets from which cotton price information can be collected. A spot market—also called the ‘‘cash market’’ or ‘‘physical market’’—is a market where commodities are sold on the spot for cash at current market prices and delivered immediately. Designation of these bona fide cotton spot markets and the determination of which counties and states compose each of these spot markets was most recently published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2013 (78 FR 25181). For each of these bona fide cotton spot markets, the Cotton and Tobacco Program of the Agricultural Marketing Service collects market price information under the United States Cotton Futures Act (7 U.S.C. 15b), the Cotton Statistics and Estimates Act (7 U.S.C. 473b) and the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (7 U.S.C. 1622(g)). This price information is then used to calculate price differences for the settlement of cotton futures contracts. In order to better manage price risk in the global cotton market, the American Cotton Shippers Association (ACSA) and the International Cotton Association (ICA) requested that the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) offer a World cotton futures contract. In response, ICE announced its intention to begin offering World cotton contracts beginning in the fourth quarter of 2015. To determine actual commercial differences in value for various grades above or below the basis grade in the settlement of this new World cotton futures contract, AMS has been asked by these same stakeholders to collect and publish cotton spot market price information relevant to the World cotton contract. Therefore, AMS proposes to amend § 27.94 to designate the same bona fide cotton spot markets for the World cotton futures contract as have been designated for the No. 2 cotton futures contract.
