Overview In February 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13777, ‘‘Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda,’’ which sets forth principles and requirements for each agency to evaluate and implement measures to lower regulatory burdens on the American people. Specifically, the Executive Order directs each agency’s Regulatory Reform Task Force PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 to identify regulatory actions that do the following: (i) Eliminate jobs, or inhibit job creation; (ii) are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective; (iii) impose costs that exceed benefits; (iv) create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with regulatory reform initiatives and policies; (v) are inconsistent with the requirements of the Information Quality Act (section 515 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 2001, 44 U.S.C. 3516 note), or OMB Information Quality Guidance issued pursuant to that provision, in particular those regulations that rely in whole or in part on data, information, or methods that are not publicly available or that are insufficiently transparent to meet the standard for reproducibility; or (vi) derive from or implement Executive Orders or other Presidential directives that have been subsequently rescinded or substantially modified. Section 3(e) of this Order directs each agency’s Regulatory Reform Task Force to seek input and other assistance, as permitted by law, from entities significantly affected by existing Federal regulations (as defined in Section 4 of Executive Order 13771) including State, local, and tribal governments, small businesses, consumers, nongovernmental organizations, and trade associations. Pursuant to Executive Order 13777 and as one part of a broader consultation effort, the Department of Justice’s Regulatory Reform Task Force is publishing this Notice to solicit public suggestions for subjects meriting the Task Force’s attention. Request for Comments The Task Force seeks public comment for two purposes. First, the Task Force seeks comments from the public on the various kinds of actions taken by the Department’s components that the public perceives to be regulatory in nature even if they are issued in a form other than rules promulgated upon notice and comment. For purposes of this inquiry, the public may perceive an action to be regulatory in nature if it imposes binding requirements on any person or entity outside the federal government or if it states criteria that a Department component will use to assess compliance with such a binding requirement. E:\FR\FM\28JNP1.SGM 28JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 123 / Wednesday, June 28, 2017 / Proposed Rules Second, the Task Force seeks suggestions from the public for specific regulatory actions previously taken by the Department that should be repealed, replaced, or modified, consistent with applicable law. In particular, the Task Force welcomes specific comments that identify regulatory actions that meet the criteria as proscribed in Executive Order 13777. The Department’s Regulatory Reform Task Force will consider public comments as it conducts its own evaluation of the Department’s regulations in order to identify candidate regulations for repeal, replacement, or modification. The Department notes that this Request for Comment is issued solely for information and planning purposes. The Department will give careful consideration to the comments, and may use them as appropriate during its review, but we do not anticipate providing a point-by-point response to each comment submitted. While responses to this Request for Comments do not bind the Department to any further actions related to the response, all submissions will be made publicly available on http://www.regulations.gov.

Overview

    In February 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13777, 
``Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda,'' which sets forth principles 
and requirements for each agency to evaluate and implement measures to 
lower regulatory burdens on the American people. Specifically, the 
Executive Order directs each agency's Regulatory Reform Task Force to 
identify regulatory actions that do the following:
    (i) Eliminate jobs, or inhibit job creation;
    (ii) are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective;
    (iii) impose costs that exceed benefits;
    (iv) create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with 
regulatory reform initiatives and policies;
    (v) are inconsistent with the requirements of the Information 
Quality Act (section 515 of the Treasury and General Government 
Appropriations Act, 2001, 44 U.S.C. 3516 note), or OMB Information 
Quality Guidance issued pursuant to that provision, in particular those 
regulations that rely in whole or in part on data, information, or 
methods that are not publicly available or that are insufficiently 
transparent to meet the standard for reproducibility; or
    (vi) derive from or implement Executive Orders or other 
Presidential directives that have been subsequently rescinded or 
substantially modified.
    Section 3(e) of this Order directs each agency's Regulatory Reform 
Task Force to seek input and other assistance, as permitted by law, 
from entities significantly affected by existing Federal regulations 
(as defined in Section 4 of Executive Order 13771) including State, 
local, and tribal governments, small businesses, consumers, non-
governmental organizations, and trade associations. Pursuant to 
Executive Order 13777 and as one part of a broader consultation effort, 
the Department of Justice's Regulatory Reform Task Force is publishing 
this Notice to solicit public suggestions for subjects meriting the 
Task Force's attention.

Request for Comments

    The Task Force seeks public comment for two purposes. First, the 
Task Force seeks comments from the public on the various kinds of 
actions taken by the Department's components that the public perceives 
to be regulatory in nature even if they are issued in a form other than 
rules promulgated upon notice and comment. For purposes of this 
inquiry, the public may perceive an action to be regulatory in nature 
if it imposes binding requirements on any person or entity outside the 
federal government or if it states criteria that a Department component 
will use to assess compliance with such a binding requirement.

[[Page 29249]]

    Second, the Task Force seeks suggestions from the public for 
specific regulatory actions previously taken by the Department that 
should be repealed, replaced, or modified, consistent with applicable 
law. In particular, the Task Force welcomes specific comments that 
identify regulatory actions that meet the criteria as proscribed in 
Executive Order 13777.
    The Department's Regulatory Reform Task Force will consider public 
comments as it conducts its own evaluation of the Department's 
regulations in order to identify candidate regulations for repeal, 
replacement, or modification.
    The Department notes that this Request for Comment is issued solely 
for information and planning purposes. The Department will give careful 
consideration to the comments, and may use them as appropriate during 
its review, but we do not anticipate providing a point-by-point 
response to each comment submitted. While responses to this Request for 
Comments do not bind the Department to any further actions related to 
the response, all submissions will be made publicly available on http://www.regulations.gov.
