GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION In the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of this Federal Register, EPA is authorizing the changes by direct final rule. EPA did not make a proposal prior to the direct final rule because we believe this action is not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose it. We have explained the reasons for this authorization in the preamble to the direct final rule. Unless we get written comments which oppose this authorization during the comment period, the direct final rule will become effective 60 days after publication and we will not take further action on this proposal. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. We will then respond to public comments in a later final rule based on this proposal. You may not have another opportunity for comment. If you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this time. The purpose of this Federal Register document is to codify Arkansas’ base hazardous waste management program and its revisions to that program through RCRA Cluster XXI (see 79 FR 64678 October 31, 2014). The EPA provided notices and opportunity for comments on the Agency’s decisions to authorize the Arkansas program, and the EPA is not now reopening the decisions, nor requesting comments, on the Arkansas authorizations as published in FR notices specified in Section I.F of the direct final rule FR document. This document incorporates by reference Arkansas’ hazardous waste statutes and regulations and clarifies which of these provisions are included in the authorized and federally enforceable program. By codifying Arkansas’ authorized program and by amending the Code of Federal Regulations, the public will be more easily able to discern the status of federally approved requirements of the Arkansas hazardous waste management program. 41 CFR Parts 301–51 and 301–70 jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: November 16, 2015.

Please cite FTR Case 2015–303. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background The FTR currently lists official travel expenses and classes of employees that are exempt from the mandatory use of the Government contractor-issued travel charge card. See FTR sections 301–51.2 and 301–70.704. GSA has determined that these exemptions should be updated in order for agencies to maximize travel charge card rebates. This proposed rule emphasizes the need for agencies to maximize travel charge card rebates by increasing the use of the travel charge card. Additionally, this proposed rule updates the list of exemptions to the mandatory use of the Government contractor-issued travel charge card, with the goal being to increase the issuance and appropriate use of travel charge cards for employees on official travel. B. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 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). E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action, and therefore, was not subject to review under Section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. C. Regulatory Flexibility Act This proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. This proposed rule is also exempt from the Administrative Procedure Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2) because it applies to agency management or personnel. D. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the proposed changes to the FTR do not impose recordkeeping or information collection requirements, or the collection of information from offerors, contractors, or members of the public that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
