Download as PDF 60674 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 245 / Friday, December 22, 2017 / Rules and Regulations Act transferred the Board’s rulemaking authority under HMDA and other enumerated consumer protection laws to the Bureau, but Section 1029 of the Dodd-Frank Act also preserved the Board’s rulemaking authority over certain motor vehicle dealers, with some exceptions. The rulemaking authority retained by the Board under Section 1029, however, does not extend to residential or commercial mortgages or self-financing transactions involving real property.7 Thus, all rulemaking authority under HMDA, which pertains only to mortgage loan transactions, was transferred to the Bureau. The repeal of the Board’s Regulation C, 12 CFR part 203, also repeals the Official Staff Commentary that accompanies the regulations. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES III. Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) (RFA) generally requires an agency to perform an assessment of the impact a rule is expected to have on small entities. Based on its analysis, and for the reasons stated below, the Board believes that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 1. Statement of the need for, and objectives of, the proposed rule. As noted above, title X of the Dodd-Frank Act transferred rulemaking authority for HMDA and other enumerated consumer financial protection laws from the Board to the Bureau, effective July 21, 2011. Although the Board retains authority to issue some consumer financial protection rules, all rulemaking authority under HMDA concerning mortgage loan transactions was transferred to the Bureau. In December 2011, the Bureau issued an Interim Final Rule to implement HMDA pursuant to the transfer of rulemaking authority, as amended further by final rules issued by the Bureau in October 2015, pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act. Accordingly, the Board is repealing the Board’s Regulation C, 12 CFR part 203, and the Official Staff Commentary that accompanies the regulation, which has been superseded by the final rules issued by the Bureau. 2. Summary of issues raised by comments in response to the initial regulatory flexibility analysis. The dwellings for purposes of HMDA. See 80 FR 66128, 66145 (Oct. 28, 2015). 7 Section 1029(b)(1) of the Dodd-Frank Act states: Subsection (a) shall not apply to any person, to the extent such person (1) provides consumers with any services related to residential or commercial mortgages or self-financing transaction involving real property. . . .’’ 12 U.S.C. 5519(b). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:04 Dec 21, 2017 Jkt 244001 Board did not receive any comments on the initial regulatory flexibility analysis. 3. Small entities affected by the final rule. Any entity that is currently covered by HMDA is subject to the rules issued by the Bureau, located in 12 CFR part 1003. Therefore the Board believes the repeal of its Regulation C will not affect any entity, including any small entity. 4. Recordkeeping, reporting, and compliance requirements. The final rule repeals the Board’s Regulation C, 12 CFR part 203, and therefore does not impose any recordkeeping, reporting, or compliance requirements on any entities. 5. Significant alternatives to the final revisions. Because the repeal of Regulation C will have no impact, there are no alternatives that would further minimize the economic impact of the final rule on small entities. IV. Paperwork Reduction Act In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506; 5 CFR 1320 Appendix A.1), the Board reviewed the rule under the authority delegated to the Federal Reserve by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The final rule contains no collections of information under the PRA. See 44 U.S.C. 3502(3). Accordingly, there is no paperwork burden associated with the final rule.

PART 203—[REMOVED AND RESERVED] For the reasons set forth in the preamble, under the authority of 12 U.S.C. 5581, the Board removes and reserves Regulation C, 12 CFR part 203. ■ By order of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The owner of the bridge, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation. The existing electrical power and control system malfunctions and is at the end of its expected life. The US1 Bridge across the Merrimac River, mile 3.4, at Newburyport, Massachusetts, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 35 feet at mean high water. The existing bridge operating regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.605. This temporary deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed to navigation position from 12:01 a.m. on January 2, 2018 through 11:59 p.m. on April 15, 2018. The deviation will have negligible effect on vessel navigation. The waterway is transited primarily by seasonal recreational vessels of various sizes. During this time period, no requests for an opening were made in 2016 and only one request was made in 2017. Vessels that can pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies; however, Coast Guard and harbormaster vessels are able to pass through the bridge in the closed position.
