Because 49 CFR chapter X is titled ‘‘Surface Transportation Board, Department of Transportation,’’ the Board is revising it to ‘‘Surface Transportation Board’’ to reflect the agency’s independent status.

Because the Board has determined that notice and comment are not required under the APA for this rulemaking, the requirements of the RFA do not apply. This final rule does not contain a new or amended information collection requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501– 3521. It is ordered: 1.

129 Stat. 2228 (2015) (STB Reauthorization Act), was enacted into law,

(DOT), where it had been administratively housed, and establishing it 
as an independent Federal agency. 49 U.S.C. 701 (2012); STB 
Reauthorization Act section 3. Because 49 CFR chapter X is titled 
``Surface Transportation Board, Department of Transportation,'' the 
Board is revising it to ``Surface Transportation Board'' to reflect the 
agency's independent status.
    As this change is not substantive, we find good cause to dispense 
with notice and comment under the Administrative Procedure Act 
(APA).\1\ 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A)-(B).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Board procedures allow for the issue of final rules without 
notice or comment when those rules are interpretive, general 
statements of policy, or relate to organization, procedure, or 
practice before the Board. See 49 CFR 1110.3(a).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, 
generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility 
analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking 
requirements, unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
Because the Board has determined that notice and comment are not 
required under the APA for this rulemaking, the requirements of the RFA 
do not apply.
    This final rule does not contain a new or amended information 
collection requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
44 U.S.C. 3501-3521.
    It is ordered:
    1. The rule modifications set forth below are adopted as final 
rules.
    2. This decision is effective on May 26, 2016.

    Decided: May 19, 2016.

    By the Board, Chairman Elliott, Vice Chairman Miller, and 
Commissioner Begeman.
