Semiannual regulatory agenda and annual regulatory plan. AGENCY: ACTION: This notice is given pursuant to the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 (‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review’’), which require the publication by the Department of a semiannual agenda of regulations. E.O. 12866 also requires the publication by the Department of a regulatory plan for the upcoming fiscal year. The purpose of the agenda is to provide advance information about pending regulatory activities and encourage public participation in the regulatory process. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Agency Contact identified in the item relating to that regulation. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The semiannual regulatory agenda includes regulations that the Department has issued or expects to issue and rules currently in effect that are under departmental or bureau review. For this edition of the regulatory agenda, the most important significant regulatory actions and a Statement of Regulatory Priorities are included in the Regulatory SUMMARY: Plan, which appears in both the online Unified Agenda and in part II of the Federal Register publication that includes the Unified Agenda. Beginning with the fall 2007 edition, the internet has been the primary medium for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda will be available online at www.reginfo.gov and www.regulations.gov, in a format that offers users an enhanced ability to obtain information from the Agenda database. Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the regulatory flexibility agenda required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602), Treasury’s printed agenda entries include only: (1) Rules that are in the regulatory flexibility agenda, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because they are likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities; and (2) Rules that have been identified for periodic review under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain information required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act’s Agenda requirements. Additional information on these entries is available in the Unified Agenda published on the internet. In addition, for fall editions of the Agenda, the entire Regulatory Plan will continue to be printed in the Federal Register, as in past years. The Department has listed in this agenda all regulations and regulatory reviews pending at the time of publication, except for technical, minor, and routine actions. On occasion, a regulatory matter may be inadvertently left off of the agenda or an emergency may arise that requires the Department to initiate a regulatory action not yet on the agenda. There is no legal significance to the omission of an item from this agenda. For most entries, Treasury includes a projected date for the next rulemaking action; however, the date is an estimate and is not a commitment to publish on the projected date. In addition, some agenda entries are marked as ‘‘withdrawn’’ when there has been no publication activity. Withdrawal of a rule from the agenda does not necessarily mean that a rule will not be included in a future agenda but may mean that further consideration is warranted and that the regulatory action is unlikely in the next 12 months. Public participation in the rulemaking process is the foundation of effective regulations. For this reason, the Department invites comments on all regulatory and de-regulatory items included in the agenda and invites input on items that should be included in the semiannual agenda. Brian J.

Semiannual Agenda and Fiscal Year 2017 Regulatory Plan

AGENCY: Department of the Treasury.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda and annual regulatory plan.

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

SUMMARY: This notice is given pursuant to the requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 
(``Regulatory Planning and Review''), which require the publication by 
the Department of a semiannual agenda of regulations. E.O. 12866 also 
requires the publication by the Department of a regulatory plan for the 
upcoming fiscal year. The purpose of the agenda is to provide advance 
information about pending regulatory activities and encourage public 
participation in the regulatory process.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Agency Contact identified in the 
item relating to that regulation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The semiannual regulatory agenda includes 
regulations that the Department has issued or expects to issue and 
rules currently in effect that are under departmental or bureau review. 
For this edition of the regulatory agenda, the most important 
significant regulatory actions and a Statement of Regulatory Priorities 
are included in the Regulatory Plan, which appears in both the online 
Unified Agenda and in part II of the Federal Register publication that 
includes the Unified Agenda.
    Beginning with the fall 2007 edition, the internet has been the 
primary medium for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete 
Unified Agenda will be available online at www.reginfo.gov and 
www.regulations.gov, in a format that offers users an enhanced ability 
to obtain information from the Agenda database. Because publication in 
the Federal Register is mandated for the regulatory flexibility agenda 
required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602), Treasury's 
printed agenda entries include only:
    (1) Rules that are in the regulatory flexibility agenda, in 
accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because they are likely 
to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities; and
    (2) Rules that have been identified for periodic review under 
section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain 
information required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act's Agenda 
requirements. Additional information on these entries is available in 
the Unified Agenda published on the internet. In addition, for fall 
editions of the Agenda, the entire Regulatory Plan will continue to be 
printed in the Federal Register, as in past years.
    The Department has listed in this agenda all regulations and 
regulatory reviews pending at the time of publication, except for 
technical, minor, and routine actions. On occasion, a regulatory matter 
may be inadvertently left off of the agenda or an emergency may arise 
that requires the Department to initiate a regulatory action not yet on 
the agenda. There is no legal significance to the omission of an item 
from this agenda. For most entries, Treasury includes a projected date 
for the next rulemaking action; however, the date is an estimate and is 
not a commitment to publish on the projected date. In addition, some 
agenda entries are marked as ``withdrawn'' when there has been no 
publication activity. Withdrawal of a rule from the agenda does not 
necessarily mean that a rule will not be included in a future agenda 
but may mean that further consideration is warranted and that the 
regulatory action is unlikely in the next 12 months.
    Public participation in the rulemaking process is the foundation of 
effective regulations. For this reason, the Department invites comments 
on all regulatory and de-regulatory items included in the agenda and 
invites input on items that should be included in the semiannual 
agenda.

Assistant General Counsel for General Law and Regulation.
