Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 30 / Wednesday, February 15, 2017 / Rules and Regulations J. National Environmental Policy Act This rule does not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. A detailed statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required because the rule is covered by a categorical exclusion (see 43 CFR 46.210(i)). As a regulation of an administrative nature, this rule is covered by a categorical exclusion (see 43 CFR 46.210(i)). Therefore, a detailed statement under NEPA is not required. We have also determined that the rule does not involve any of the extraordinary circumstances listed in 43 CFR 46.215 that would require further analysis under NEPA. ■ K. Effects on the Energy Supply (E.O. 13211) This rule is not a significant energy action under the definition in E.O. 13211. Therefore, a Statement of Energy Effects is not required. § 553.51 What are the penalties for not complying with this part?
