Environmental Analysis 24. The Commission is required to prepare an Environmental Assessment or an Environmental Impact Statement for any action that may have a significant adverse effect on the human environment.43 The action proposed here falls within the categorical exclusion in the Commission’s regulations for rules that are clarifying, corrective or procedural, for information gathering, analysis, and dissemination.44 43 Regulations Implementing the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897 (Dec. 17, 1987), FERC Stats. & Regs. Preambles 1986–1990 ¶ 30,783 (1987). 44 18 CFR 380.4(a)(2)(ii) (2016). VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:10 Feb 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 V. Regulatory Flexibility Act 25. The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA) 45 generally requires a description and analysis of proposed rules that will have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 26. The proposed Reliability Standard PRC–012–2 will apply to approximately 1,681 entities in the United States. Comparison of the applicable entities with the Commission’s small business data indicates that approximately 1,025 are small entities or 61 percent of the respondents affected by proposed Reliability Standard PRC–012–2.46 The Commission estimates for these small entities, proposed Reliability Standard PRC–012–2 may need to be evaluated and documented every five years with a cost of $6,322 for each evaluation. The Commission views this as a minimal economic impact for each entity. Accordingly, the Commission certifies that the proposed Reliability Standard PRC–012–2 will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. VI. Comment Procedures 27. The Commission invites interested persons to submit comments on the matters and issues proposed in this notice to be adopted, including any related matters or alternative proposals that commenters may wish to discuss. Comments are due April 10, 2017. Comments must refer to Docket No. RM16–20–000, and must include the commenter’s name, the organization they represent, if applicable, and their address in their comments. 28. The Commission encourages comments to be filed electronically via the eFiling link on the Commission’s Web site at http://www.ferc.gov. The Commission accepts most standard word processing formats. Documents created electronically using word processing software should be filed in native applications or print-to-PDF format and not in a scanned format. Commenters filing electronically do not need to make a paper filing. 29. Commenters that are not able to file comments electronically must send an original of their comments to: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 45 5 U.S.C. 601–612 (2012). Small Business Administration sets the threshold for what constitutes a small business. Public utilities may fall under one of several different categories, each with a size threshold based on the company’s number of employees, including affiliates, the parent company, and subsidiaries. For the analysis in this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, we apply a 500 employee threshold for each affected entity. Each entity is classified as Electric Bulk Power Transmission and Control (NAICS code 221121). 46 The PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Secretary of the Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426. 30.
