ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda. AGENCY: In accordance with section 4(b) of Executive Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review,’’ as amended, HUD is publishing its agenda of regulations already issued or that are expected to be issued during the next several months. The agenda also includes rules currently in effect that are under review and describes those regulations that may affect small entities, as required by section 602 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The purpose of publication of the agenda is to encourage more effective public participation in the regulatory process by providing the public with advance information about pending regulatory activities. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Aaron Santa Anna, Assistant General Counsel for Regulations, Office of General Counsel, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW, Room 10276, Washington, DC 20410–0500; telephone number 202–708–3055. (This is not a toll-free number.) A telecommunications device for hearingand speech-impaired individuals (TTY) is available at 800–877–8339 (Federal Relay Service). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review’’ (58 FR 51735), as amended, requires each department or agency to prepare semiannually an agenda of: (1) Regulations that the department or agency has issued or expects to issue, and; (2) rules currently in effect that are under departmental or agency review. The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) requires each department or agency to publish semiannually a regulatory agenda of rules expected to be proposed or promulgated that are likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of ‘‘small entities,’’ meaning small businesses, small organizations, or small governmental jurisdictions. Executive Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act permit incorporation of the agenda required by these two authorities with any other prescribed agenda. HUD’s regulatory agenda combines the information required by Executive Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act. As in the past, HUD’s complete Unified Agenda will be available online at www.reginfo.gov, in a format that offers users a greatly enhanced ability to obtain information from the Agenda database. The Department is subject to certain rulemaking requirements set forth in the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3531 et seq.). Section 7(o) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3535(o)) requires that the Secretary transmit to the congressional committees having jurisdictional oversight of HUD (the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and the House Committee on Financial Services), a semiannual agenda of all rules or regulations that are under development or review by the Department. A rule appearing on the agenda cannot be published for comment before or during the first 15 calendar days after transmittal of the agenda. Section 7(o) provides that if, within that period, either committee notifies the Secretary that it intends to review any rule or regulation that appears on the agenda, the Secretary must submit to both committees a copy of the rule or regulation, in the form that it is intended to be proposed, at least 15 calendar days before it is to be published for comment. The semiannual agenda posted on www.reginfo.gov is the agenda transmitted to the committees in compliance with the above requirements. HUD has attempted to list in this agenda all regulations and regulatory reviews pending at the time of publication, except for minor and routine or repetitive actions, but some may have been inadvertently omitted, or may have arisen too late to be included in the published agenda. There is no legal significance to the omission of an item from this agenda. Also, where a date is provided for the next rulemaking action, the date is an estimate and is not a commitment to act on or by the date shown. In some cases, HUD has withdrawn rules that were placed on previous agendas for which there has been no publication activity. Withdrawal of a rule does not necessarily mean that HUD will not proceed with the rulemaking. Withdrawal allows HUD to assess the subject matter further and determine whether rulemaking in that area is appropriate. Following such an assessment, the Department may determine that certain rules listed as withdrawn under this agenda are appropriate. If that determination is made, such rules will be included in a succeeding semiannual agenda. In addition, for a few rules that have been published as proposed or interim rules and which, therefore, require further rulemaking, HUD has identified the timing of the next action stage as ‘‘undetermined.’’ These are rules that are still under review by HUD for which a determination and timing of the next action stage have not yet been made. Since the purpose of publication of the agenda is to encourage more effective public participation in the regulatory process by providing the public with early information about the Department’s future regulatory actions, HUD invites all interested members of the public to comment on the rules listed in the agenda.

Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Department of Housing and Urban Development.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with section 4(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' as amended, HUD is publishing its 
agenda of regulations already issued or that are expected to be issued 
during the next several months. The agenda also includes rules 
currently in effect that are under review and describes those 
regulations that may affect small entities, as required by section 602 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The purpose of publication of the 
agenda is to encourage more effective public participation in the 
regulatory process by providing the public with advance information 
about pending regulatory activities.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Aaron Santa Anna, Assistant General 
Counsel for Regulations, Office of General Counsel, Department of 
Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW, Room 10276, 
Washington, DC 20410-0500; telephone number 202-708-3055. (This is not 
a toll-free number.) A telecommunications device for hearing- and 
speech-impaired individuals (TTY) is available at 800-877-8339 (Federal 
Relay Service).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 12866, ``Regulatory Planning 
and Review'' (58 FR 51735), as amended, requires each department or 
agency to prepare semiannually an agenda of: (1) Regulations that the 
department or agency has issued or expects to issue, and; (2) rules 
currently in effect that are under departmental or agency review. The 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612) requires each department 
or agency to publish semiannually a regulatory agenda of rules expected 
to be proposed or promulgated that are likely to have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of ``small entities,'' meaning 
small businesses, small organizations, or small governmental 
jurisdictions. Executive Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
permit incorporation of the agenda required by these two authorities 
with any other prescribed agenda.
    HUD's regulatory agenda combines the information required by 
Executive Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act. As in the 
past, HUD's complete Unified Agenda will be available online at 
www.reginfo.gov, in a format that offers users a greatly enhanced 
ability to obtain information from the Agenda database.
    The Department is subject to certain rulemaking requirements set 
forth in the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 
3531 et seq.). Section 7(o) of the Department of Housing and Urban 
Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3535(o)) requires that the Secretary 
transmit to the congressional committees having jurisdictional 
oversight of HUD (the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban 
Affairs and the House Committee on Financial Services), a semiannual 
agenda of all rules or regulations that are under development or review 
by the Department. A rule appearing on the agenda cannot be published 
for comment before or during the first 15 calendar days after 
transmittal of the agenda. Section 7(o) provides that if, within that 
period, either committee notifies the Secretary that it intends to 
review any rule or regulation that appears on the agenda, the Secretary 
must submit to both committees a copy of the rule or regulation, in the 
form that it is intended to be proposed, at least 15 calendar days 
before it is to be published for comment. The semiannual agenda posted 
on www.reginfo.gov is the agenda transmitted to the committees in 
compliance with the above requirements.
    HUD has attempted to list in this agenda all regulations and 
regulatory reviews pending at the time of publication, except for minor 
and routine or repetitive actions, but some may have been inadvertently 
omitted, or may have arisen too late to be included in the published 
agenda. There is no legal significance to the omission of an item from 
this agenda. Also, where a date is provided for the next rulemaking 
action, the date is an estimate and is not a commitment to act on or by 
the date shown.
    In some cases, HUD has withdrawn rules that were placed on previous 
agendas for which there has been no publication activity. Withdrawal of 
a rule does not necessarily mean that HUD will not proceed with the 
rulemaking. Withdrawal allows HUD to assess the subject matter further 
and determine whether rulemaking in that area is appropriate. Following 
such an assessment, the Department may determine that certain rules 
listed as withdrawn under this agenda are appropriate. If that 
determination is made, such rules will be included in a succeeding 
semiannual agenda.
    In addition, for a few rules that have been published as proposed 
or interim rules and which, therefore, require further rulemaking, HUD 
has identified the timing of the next action stage as ``undetermined.'' 
These are rules that are still under review by HUD for which a 
determination and timing of the next action stage have not yet been 
made.
    Since the purpose of publication of the agenda is to encourage more 
effective public participation in the regulatory process by providing 
the public with early information about the Department's future 
regulatory actions, HUD invites all interested members of the public to 
comment on the rules listed in the agenda.

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Regulatory.
    Legal Authority: 42 U.S.C. 5401 et seq.; 42 U.S.C. 3535(d)
    Abstract: This proposed rule would amend the Federal Manufactured 
Home Construction and Safety Standards by adopting certain 
recommendations made to HUD by the Manufactured Housing Consensus 
Committee (MHCC). The National Manufactured Housing Construction and 
Safety Standards Act of 1974 (the Act) requires HUD to publish all 
proposed revised construction and safety standards submitted by the 
MHCC. This proposed rule is based on the third set of MHCC 
recommendations to update and improve various aspects of the 
Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards. HUD has 
reviewed those proposals and has made several editorial revisions to 
the proposals which were reviewed and accepted by the MHCC. This rule 
proposes to add new standards that would establish requirements for 
carbon monoxide detection, stairways, fire safety considerations for 
attached garages, and for duplexes.
