Chapter 223). for which we would prepare a Federalism Assessment. ■ Regulatory Flexibility Act 2. Revise § 550.50 to read as follows: The Director of the Bureau of Prisons, under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 605(b)), reviewed this regulation. By approving it, the Director certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact upon a substantial number of small entities because: This proposed rule is about the correctional management of offenders committed to the custody of the Attorney General or the Director of the Bureau of Prisons, and its economic impact is limited to the Bureau’s appropriated funds. § 550.50 Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 § 550.53 Residential Drug Abuse Treatment Program (RDAP). This proposed rule will not cause State, local and 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. We do not need to take action under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. (a) * * * (1) Unit-based component. Inmates must complete a course of activities provided by the Psychology Services Department in a treatment unit set apart from the general prison population. This component must last at least six months. * * * * * (3) Community Treatment Services (CTS). Inmates who have completed the unit-based program and (when appropriate) the follow-up treatment and transferred to a community-based program must complete CTS to have successfully completed RDAP and receive incentives. The Warden, on the basis of his or her discretion, may find an inmate ineligible for participation in a community-based program; therefore, the inmate cannot complete RDAP. * * * * * (f) Completing the unit-based component of RDAP. To complete the unit-based component of RDAP, inmates must have satisfactory attendance and participation in all RDAP activities. (g) Expulsion from RDAP. (1) Inmates may be removed from the program by the Drug Abuse Program Coordinator because of disruptive behavior related to the program or unsatisfactory progress in treatment. (2) Ordinarily, inmates must be given at least one formal warning before removal from RDAP. A formal warning is not necessary when the documented lack of compliance with program standards is of such magnitude that an inmate’s continued presence would create an immediate and ongoing problem for staff and other inmates. (3) We may return an inmate who withdraws or is removed from RDAP to his/her prior institution (if we had transferred the inmate specifically to participate in RDAP). * * * * * Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 This proposed rule is not a major rule as defined by section 804 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996. This proposed rule would 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 competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreignbased companies in domestic and export markets. List of Subjects in 28 CFR Part 550 Prisoners. Charles E. Samuels, Jr., Director, Bureau of Prisons. Under the rulemaking authority vested in the Attorney General in 5 U.S.C. 301; 28 U.S.C. 509, 510 and delegated to the Director, Bureau of Prisons in 28 CFR 0.96, we propose to amend 28 CFR part 550 as follows: Lhorne on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS PART 550—DRUG PROGRAMS 1.

II. Summary of Proposal

    The Postal Service explains that ODIS-RPW is a probability-based 
destinating mail sampling system that primarily supplies the official 
``Revenue, Pieces and Weight By Class and Special Services'' (RPW) 
report estimates of revenue, volume, and weight for single-piece 
stamped and metered mail. Id., Proposal Three at 4. Currently, ODIS-RPW 
data collectors travel to randomly selected Mail Exit Points (MEPs) on 
randomly selected days and manually sample mail as it arrives at these 
locations. Id. These data collectors record mail characteristics from 
the sampled mail pieces, such as revenue, volume, weight, mail class, 
subclass, and indicia. Id.
    Under Proposal Three, a portion of MEPs would begin digitally 
capturing the images of letter and card shaped mail from Delivery 
Barcode Sequencing (DBCS) second pass operations. Id. at 3. The 
remaining portion of MEPs would continue to employ the existing manual 
ODIS-RPW sampling techniques. Id. at 4-5. The Postal Service asserts 
that all of the mail characteristics currently collected from manually 
sampled mailpieces can be collected from digitally captured images of 
sampled mailpieces, except for weight and shape. Id. at 3. The Postal 
Service proposes to use the weight and shape data from those MEPs that 
continue to employ manual sampling techniques as a distribution key for 
the digitally sampled mailpieces. Id. at 5.
    The Postal Service plans to implement the change in Proposal Three 
beginning on January 1, 2016. Id. at 3. The Postal Service asserts that 
the proposed change would only impact three mail categories: First-
Class Mail single-piece cards, First-Class Mail single-piece stamped 
letters, and First-Class Mail single-piece metered letters. Id. at 5.
    The Postal Service states that the change in Proposal Three would 
have very little impact on the business needs that the ODIS-RPW system 
supports. Id. at 10. Moreover, the Postal Service notes that the 
changes in Proposal Three will result in cost savings through the 
elimination of travel time and on-site work hours for ODIS-RPW data 
collectors. Id. at 5 n.1.
