ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This final rule amends the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation’s regulation on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans to prescribe interest assumptions under the regulation for valuation dates in May 2016. The interest assumptions are used for paying benefits under terminating single-employer plans covered by the pension insurance system administered by PBGC. DATES: Effective May 1, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine B. Klion (Klion.Catherine@ pbgc.gov), Assistant General Counsel for Regulatory Affairs, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, 1200 K Street NW., Washington, DC 20005, 202–326– 4024. (TTY/TDD users may call the Federal relay service toll-free at 1–800– 877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326–4024.) SUMMARY: Rate set For plans with a valuation date On or after * 271 PBGC’s regulation on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR part 4022) prescribes actuarial assumptions—including interest assumptions—for paying plan benefits under terminating single-employer plans covered by title IV of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The interest assumptions in the regulation are also published on PBGC’s Web site (http://www.pbgc.gov). PBGC uses the interest assumptions in Appendix B to Part 4022 to determine whether a benefit is payable as a lump sum and to determine the amount to pay. Appendix C to Part 4022 contains interest assumptions for private-sector pension practitioners to refer to if they wish to use lump-sum interest rates determined using PBGC’s historical methodology. Currently, the rates in Appendices B and C of the benefit payment regulation are the same. The interest assumptions are intended to reflect current conditions in the financial and annuity markets. Assumptions under the benefit payments regulation are updated monthly. This final rule updates the benefit payments interest assumptions for May 2016.1 The May 2016 interest assumptions under the benefit payments regulation will be 1.00 percent for the period during which a benefit is in pay status and 4.00 percent during any years preceding the benefit’s placement in pay status. In comparison with the interest assumptions in effect for April 2016, these interest assumptions are unchanged. PBGC has determined that notice and public comment on this amendment are impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This finding is based on the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Before 3. In appendix C to part 4022, Rate Set 271, as set forth below, is added to the table. ■ jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES 1 Appendix B to PBGC’s regulation on Allocation of Assets in Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR part 4044) prescribes interest assumptions for valuing 14:40 Apr 14, 2016 Jkt 238001 Employee benefit plans, Pension insurance, Pensions, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. In consideration of the foregoing, 29 CFR part 4022 is amended as follows: PART 4022—BENEFITS PAYABLE IN TERMINATED SINGLE-EMPLOYER PLANS 1. The authority citation for part 4022 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 29 U.S.C. 1302, 1322, 1322b, 1341(c)(3)(D), and 1344. 2. In appendix B to part 4022, Rate Set 271, as set forth below, is added to the table. ■ Appendix B to Part 4022—Lump Sum Interest Rates for PBGC Payments * * i2 * 4.00 1.00 * * * i3 4.00 * n1 * 4.00 n2 * 7 8 Appendix C to Part 4022—Lump Sum Interest Rates for Private-Sector Payments * VerDate Sep<11>2014 i1 * 6–1–16 List of Subjects in 29 CFR Part 4022 Deferred annuities (percent) Immediate annuity rate (percent) * 5–1–16 need to determine and issue new interest assumptions promptly so that the assumptions can reflect current market conditions as accurately as possible. Because of the need to provide immediate guidance for the payment of benefits under plans with valuation dates during May 2016, PBGC finds that good cause exists for making the assumptions set forth in this amendment effective less than 30 days after publication. PBGC has determined that this action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under the criteria set forth in Executive Order 12866. Because no general notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this amendment, the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 does not apply.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) published an interim final 
rule on title evidence for trust land acquisitions and received 
comments during the public comment period. The BIA anticipates making 
technical revisions to the rule in response to those comments. This 
notice delays the effective date of the interim final rule for 30 days, 
during which time BIA plans to publish a final rule with technical 
revisions.

DATES: The effective date of the interim final rule published March 1, 
2016 (81 FR 10477) is delayed from April 15, 2016 to May 16, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 1, 2016, BIA published an interim 
final rule with an effective date of April 15, 2016. 81 FR 10477. The 
interim final rule deletes the requirement for fee-to-trust applicants 
to furnish title evidence that meets the ``Standards for the 
Preparation of Title Evidence in Land Acquisitions by the United 
States'' issued by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and replaces 
the requirement with a more targeted requirement for title evidence, 
because adherence to the DOJ standards is not required for acquisitions 
of land in trust for individual Indians or Indian tribes. The BIA 
received 13 comments during the public comment period and anticipates 
making technical changes in response to those comments. The interim 
final rule stated that BIA may withdraw, initiate a proposed 
rulemaking, or revise the rule in response to comments. The BIA has 
determined that technical revisions to the rule may be appropriate and 
is therefore delaying the effective date of the rule for 30 days, 
during which time
