Therefore, the amended route extends between Dolphin, FL, and Muscle Shoals, AL, as currently described; then between Central City, KY, and Sawyer, MI, as currently described. V–67: V–67 extends between the Choo Choo, TN, VORTAC and the Rochester, MN, VOR/DME. This rule removes the Graham, TN, VORTAC from the route which creates a gap in the route between Shelbyville, TN, and Cunningham, KY. Therefore, the amended route extends between Choo Choo, TN, and Shelbyville, TN, as currently described; then between Cunningham, KY, and Rochester, MN, as currently described. This action also corrects the state location for the Choo Choo VORTAC to reflect Tennessee. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation because the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action of modifying the descriptions of VOR Federal airways V–7, and V–67, due to the planned decommissioning of the Graham, TN, VORTAC. qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act and its agency-specific implementing regulations in FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ regarding categorical exclusions for procedural actions at paragraph 5–6.5a, which categorically excludes from full environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points. Therefore, this airspace action is not expected to result in any significant environmental impacts.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To comply with the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–188, 122 Stat. 635) (‘‘Act’’), the Commission is amending the TSR by updating the fees entities are charged for accessing the Registry as follows: The revised rule increases the annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data from $61 to $62 per area code, and increases the maximum amount that will be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data from $16,714 to $17,021. The fee per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period increases from $30 to $31. These increases are in accordance with the Act, which specifies that beginning after fiscal year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall be increased by an amount equal to the amounts specified in the Act, multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the Department of Labor) (‘‘CPI’’) for the most recently ended 12month period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\21AUR1.SGM 21AUR1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES 39534 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 160 / Monday, August 21, 2017 / Rules and Regulations ending June 30, 2008. The Act also states that any increase shall be rounded to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in the dollar amounts if the change in the CPI is less than one percent. For fiscal year 2009, the Act specified that the original annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data was $54 per area code, or $27 per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period, and that the maximum amount that would be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data would be $14,850. The determination whether a fee change is required and the amount of the fee change involves a two-step process. First, to determine whether a fee change is required, we measure the change in the CPI from the time of the previous increase in fees. There was an increase in the fees for fiscal year 2017. Accordingly, we calculated the change in the CPI since last year, and the increase was 1.84 percent. Because this change is over the one percent threshold, the fees will change for fiscal year 2018. Second, to determine how much the fees should increase this fiscal year, we use the calculation specified by the Act set forth above, the percentage change in the baseline CPI applied to the original fees for fiscal year 2009. The average value of the CPI for July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008 was 211.702; the average value for July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017 was 242.656, an increase of 14.62 percent. Applying the 14.62 percent increase to the base amount from fiscal year 2009, leads to an increase from $61 to $62 in the fee from last year for access to a single area code of data for a full year for fiscal year 2018. The actual amount is $61.89, but when rounded, pursuant to the Act, the amount is $62. The fee for accessing an additional area code for a half year increases from $30 to $31 (rounded from $30.95). The maximum amount charged increases to $17,021 (rounded from $17,021.07). Administrative Procedure Act; Regulatory Flexibility Act; Paperwork Reduction Act. The revisions to the Fee Rule are technical in nature and merely incorporate statutory changes to the TSR. These statutory changes have been adopted without change or interpretation, making public comment unnecessary. Therefore, the Commission has determined that the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b). For this reason, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act also do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 603, 604.

No person may participate in any arrangement to share the cost of accessing the National Do Not Call Registry, including any arrangement with any telemarketer or service provider to divide the costs to access the registry among various clients of that telemarketer or service provider.

Telemarketing Sales Rule Fees

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission (the ``Commission'' or ``FTC'') 
is amending its Telemarketing Sales Rule (``TSR'') by updating the fees 
charged to entities accessing the National Do Not Call Registry (the 
``Registry'') as required by the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act 
of 2007.

DATES: This rule is effective October 1, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Copies of this document are available on the Internet at the 
Commission's Web site: http://www.ftc.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ami Joy Dziekan, (202) 326-2648, BCP, 
Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Room CC-9225, 
Washington, DC 20580.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To comply with the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee 
Extension Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-188, 122 Stat. 635) (``Act''), the 
Commission is amending the TSR by updating the fees entities are 
charged for accessing the Registry as follows: The revised rule 
increases the annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code 
of data from $61 to $62 per area code, and increases the maximum amount 
that will be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of 
data from $16,714 to $17,021. The fee per area code of data during the 
second six months of an entity's annual subscription period increases 
from $30 to $31.
    These increases are in accordance with the Act, which specifies 
that beginning after fiscal year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall 
be increased by an amount equal to the amounts specified in the Act, 
multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the 
monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the 
Department of Labor) (``CPI'') for the most recently ended 12-month 
period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period

[[Page 39534]]

ending June 30, 2008. The Act also states that any increase shall be 
rounded to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in 
the dollar amounts if the change in the CPI is less than one percent. 
For fiscal year 2009, the Act specified that the original annual fee 
for access to the Registry for each area code of data was $54 per area 
code, or $27 per area code of data during the second six months of an 
entity's annual subscription period, and that the maximum amount that 
would be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data 
would be $14,850.
    The determination whether a fee change is required and the amount 
of the fee change involves a two-step process. First, to determine 
whether a fee change is required, we measure the change in the CPI from 
the time of the previous increase in fees. There was an increase in the 
fees for fiscal year 2017. Accordingly, we calculated the change in the 
CPI since last year, and the increase was 1.84 percent. Because this 
change is over the one percent threshold, the fees will change for 
fiscal year 2018.
    Second, to determine how much the fees should increase this fiscal 
year, we use the calculation specified by the Act set forth above, the 
percentage change in the baseline CPI applied to the original fees for 
fiscal year 2009. The average value of the CPI for July 1, 2007 to June 
30, 2008 was 211.702; the average value for July 1, 2016 to June 30, 
2017 was 242.656, an increase of 14.62 percent. Applying the 14.62 
percent increase to the base amount from fiscal year 2009, leads to an 
increase from $61 to $62 in the fee from last year for access to a 
single area code of data for a full year for fiscal year 2018. The 
actual amount is $61.89, but when rounded, pursuant to the Act, the 
amount is $62. The fee for accessing an additional area code for a half 
year increases from $30 to $31 (rounded from $30.95). The maximum 
amount charged increases to $17,021 (rounded from $17,021.07).
    Administrative Procedure Act; Regulatory Flexibility Act; Paperwork 
Reduction Act. The revisions to the Fee Rule are technical in nature 
and merely incorporate statutory changes to the TSR. These statutory 
changes have been adopted without change or interpretation, making 
public comment unnecessary. Therefore, the Commission has determined 
that the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative 
Procedure Act do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b). For this reason, the 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act also do not apply. See 5 
U.S.C. 603, 604.
    Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521, the 
Office of Management and Budget (``OMB'') approved the information 
collection requirements in the Amended TSR and assigned the following 
existing OMB Control Number: 3084-0097. The amendments outlined in this 
Final Rule pertain only to the fee provision (Sec.  310.8) of the 
Amended TSR and will not establish or alter any record keeping, 
reporting, or third-party disclosure requirements elsewhere in the 
Amended TSR.

outbound telephone calls to consumers and who is accessing area codes 
of data in the National Do Not Call Registry if the person is permitted 
to access, but is not required to access, the National Do Not Call 
Registry under this Rule, 47 CFR 64.1200, or any other Federal 
regulation or law. No person may participate in any arrangement to 
share the cost of accessing the National Do Not Call Registry, 
including any arrangement with any telemarketer or service provider to 
divide the costs to access the registry among various clients of that 
telemarketer or service provider.
    (d) Each person who pays, either directly or through another 
person, the annual fee set forth in paragraph (c) of this section, each 
person excepted under paragraph (c) from paying the annual fee, and 
each person excepted from paying an annual fee under Sec.  
310.4(b)(1)(iii)(B), will be provided a unique account number that will 
allow that person to access the registry data for the selected area 
codes at any time for the twelve month period beginning on the first 
day of the month in which the person paid the fee (``the annual 
period''). To obtain access to additional area codes of data during the 
first six months of the annual period, each person required to pay the 
fee under paragraph (c) of this section must first pay $62 for each 
additional area code of data not initially selected. To obtain access 
to additional area codes of data during the second six months of the 
annual period, each person required to pay the fee under paragraph (c) 
of this section must first pay $31 for each additional area code of 
data not initially selected. The payment of the additional fee will 
permit the person to access the additional area codes of data for the 
remainder of the annual period.
