SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The mission of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is to develop and produce United States currency notes, trusted worldwide. BEP prints billions of dollars in currency—referred to as Federal Reserve notes—each year for delivery to the Federal Reserve System. Due to the sensitive nature of currency production operations, the Bureau is generally closed to the public. Limited areas of the Bureau, however, are accessible for public tours during certain authorized dates and times. Any individual entering, exiting, or on the Bureau’s property is subject to the rules of conduct as prescribed within the regulations and violations may result in criminal prosecution. This proposed rule would update the Bureau’s 1994 (59 FR 41978) regulations that concern conduct on BEP property. The proposal would remove certain obsolete language, clarify the rules of conduct on the property, and increase the maximum penalty amount permitted for violations to $5,000 in accordance with 18 U.S.C. 3571. regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because this rule primarily affects individuals accessing BEP property and is not likely to affect any small businesses. III. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 The Bureau certifies that no actions were deemed necessary under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. Furthermore, these proposed regulations will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100,000,000 or more in any one year, and they will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. IV. Regulatory Planning and Review (Executive Orders 12866 and 13563) This rule is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. Executive Order 13563 calls for public participation and an open exchange of ideas in the regulatory process and seeks regulations that are accessible, consistent, written in plain language, and easy to understand. The Bureau has developed these proposed regulations in a manner consistent with these principles. List of Subjects in 31 CFR Part 605 Federal buildings and facilities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The mission of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is to develop 
and produce United States currency notes, trusted worldwide. BEP prints 
billions of dollars in currency--referred to as Federal Reserve notes--
each year for delivery to the Federal Reserve System. Due to the 
sensitive nature of currency production operations, the Bureau is 
generally closed to the public. Limited areas of the Bureau, however, 
are accessible for public tours during certain authorized dates and 
times. Any individual entering, exiting, or on the Bureau's property is 
subject to the rules of conduct as prescribed within the regulations 
and violations may result in criminal prosecution.
    This proposed rule would update the Bureau's 1994 (59 FR 41978) 
regulations that concern conduct on BEP property. The proposal would 
remove certain obsolete language, clarify the rules of conduct on the 
property, and increase the maximum penalty amount permitted for 
violations to $5,000 in accordance with 18 U.S.C. 3571.

II. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et 
seq.), the Bureau certifies that these proposed regulations will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities because this rule primarily affects individuals accessing BEP 
property and is not likely to affect any small businesses.

III. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    The Bureau certifies that no actions were deemed necessary under 
the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. Furthermore, these proposed 
regulations will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and 
tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of 
$100,000,000 or more in any one year, and they will not significantly 
or uniquely affect small governments.

IV. Regulatory Planning and Review (Executive Orders 12866 and 13563)

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action as defined in 
Executive Order 12866. Executive Order 13563 calls for public 
participation and an open exchange of ideas in the regulatory process 
and seeks regulations that are accessible, consistent, written in plain 
language, and easy to understand. The Bureau has developed these 
proposed regulations in a manner consistent with these principles.
