ACTION: Direct final rule. AGENCY: NARA is amending our Fees regulation to shorten the period in which people who request copies of archival records may request a refund. This shorter period is in line with other similar research and archival institutions and is designed to reduce the administrative costs of processing a large number of refund requests that fall outside the permitted bases. DATES: This rule is effective on April 13, 2018 without further notice, unless we receive adverse written comment that warrants revision by April 3, 2018. If we receive such comments, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule in the Federal Register. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by RIN 3095–AB95, by email at regulation_comments@nara.gov, or by mail to the External Policy Program Manager; Strategy Division (MP), Suite 4100; National Archives and Records Administration; 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740–6001. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kimberly Keravuori, by email at regulation_comments@nara.gov, or by telephone at 301–837–3151. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background NARA is authorized by 44 U.S.C. 2116(c) to charge reproduction fees when it reproduces documents for nonFederal individuals or entities. This includes official reproductions with the Archives’ seal, reproductions of archival holdings, and reproductions of operational records. The statute authorizes NARA to recoup its costs, equipment fees, and similar expenses, and to retain the fees as part of the National Archives Trust Fund (NATF). NARA promulgated regulations at 36 CFR part 1258 to notify users of the fee structure and processes. Among these regulations is a section addressing refunds of these fees (36 CFR 1258.16). It is this provision that we are revising with this rulemaking. Due to various factors, it is occasionally difficult for us to make a legible reproduction, particularly of old PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 11145 documents. We notify customers if we anticipate the reproduction will have questionable legibility and request the customer’s approval to proceed with the reproduction—and the fee charges. As a result, we do not provide refunds except in special cases; primarily if we have somehow processed an order incorrectly or it contains errors. However, the regulation’s refund request period is of such a length (120 days) that the NATF has been receiving a significant number of refund requests for orders that contain no errors and were processed correctly, which is causing the NATF administrative processing burdens. As a result, we are now reducing the refund request period to 30 days, which we believe will reduce the number of these other types of refund requests. A 30-day refund period is also in line with similar deadlines at other research and archival institutions that allow refund requests, such as the Library of Congress. Many such organizations do not permit refunds at all (e.g., USCIS Genealogy Program). We would like to continue permitting refunds when there has been an error, but we believe the shorter period will still provide sufficient time in which to request a refund while reducing the inappropriate refund requests and NARA’s administrative costs. Regulatory Review Information This rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of E.O. 12866 and a significance determination was requested from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). It is also not a major rule as defined in 5 U.S.C. Chapter 8, Congressional Review of Agency Rulemaking. As a result, this rule is also not subject to deregulatory requirements contained in E.O. 13771. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, we certify that this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities; it simply shortens the period in which people may request refunds of reproduction fees. This rule also does not have any Federalism implications. This rule is effective upon publication for good cause as permitted by the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). NARA believes that a public comment period is unnecessary as this rule merely shortens the recently added refund request period to bring it in line with similar periods at other research and archival institutions, such as the Library of Congress.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cynthia Hanson, Fishery Management Specialist, (978) 281–9180. § 1258.16 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations governing the summer flounder fishery are found in 50 CFR 648.100 through 648.110. These regulations require annual specification of a commercial quota that is apportioned among the coastal states from Maine through North Carolina. The process to set the annual commercial quota and the percent allocated to each state is described in § 648.102, and the initial 2018 allocations were published on December 22, 2017 (82 FR 60682), and corrected January 30, 2018 (83 FR 4165). The final rule implementing Amendment 5 to the Summer Flounder Fishery Management Plan, as published in the Federal Register on December 17, 1993 (58 FR 65936), provided a mechanism for transferring summer flounder commercial quota from one state to another. Two or more states, under mutual agreement and with the concurrence of the NMFS Greater Atlantic Regional Administrator, can transfer or combine summer flounder commercial quota under § 648.102(c)(2). The Regional Administrator is required to consider the criteria in § 648.102(c)(2)(i)(A) through (C) in the evaluation of requests for quota transfers or combinations. North Carolina is transferring 5,450 lb (2,472 kg) of summer flounder commercial quota to Massachusetts. This transfer was requested to repay landings by a North Carolina-permitted vessel that landed in Massachusetts under a safe harbor agreement. Based on the initial quotas published in the 2018 Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Specifications and subsequent adjustments, the revised summer flounder quotas for calendar year 2018 are now: North Carolina, 1,755,989 lb (796,503 kg); and Massachusetts, 410,192 lb (186,060 kg).

The rule implements Amendment 5 to the HMS FMP and establishes a Federal limited entry (LE) permit system for the California/Oregon large-mesh drift gillnet (DGN) fishery using standards that are very similar to those used in the existing State of California LE permit program for the DGN fishery. Amendment 5 is intended to streamline management and future decision-making by placing all aspects of DGN fishery management under MSA authority. All current California LE DGN permit holders are eligible to apply for, and receive, a Federal LE DGN permit, and no additional LE DGN permits are created under this rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    NARA is authorized by 44 U.S.C. 2116(c) to charge reproduction fees 
when it reproduces documents for non-Federal individuals or entities. 
This includes official reproductions with the
    Archives' seal, reproductions of archival holdings, and 
reproductions of operational records. The statute authorizes NARA to 
recoup its costs, equipment fees, and similar expenses, and to retain 
the fees as part of the National Archives Trust Fund (NATF). NARA 
promulgated regulations at 36 CFR part 1258 to notify users of the fee 
structure and processes. Among these regulations is a section 
addressing refunds of these fees (36 CFR 1258.16). It is this provision 
that we are revising with this rulemaking.
    Due to various factors, it is occasionally difficult for us to make 
a legible reproduction, particularly of old documents. We notify 
customers if we anticipate the reproduction will have questionable 
legibility and request the customer's approval to proceed with the 
reproduction--and the fee charges. As a result, we do not provide 
refunds except in special cases; primarily if we have somehow processed 
an order incorrectly or it contains errors. However, the regulation's 
refund request period is of such a length (120 days) that the NATF has 
been receiving a significant number of refund requests for orders that 
contain no errors and were processed correctly, which is causing the 
NATF administrative processing burdens. As a result, we are now 
reducing the refund request period to 30 days, which we believe will 
reduce the number of these other types of refund requests. A 30-day 
refund period is also in line with similar deadlines at other research 
and archival institutions that allow refund requests, such as the

administrative costs.

Regulatory Review Information

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes 
of E.O. 12866 and a significance determination was requested from the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB). It is also not a major rule as 
defined in 5 U.S.C. Chapter 8, Congressional Review of Agency 
Rulemaking. As a result, this rule is also not subject to deregulatory 
requirements contained in E.O. 13771. As required by the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, we certify that this rule will not have a significant 
impact on a substantial number of small entities; it simply shortens 
the period in which people may request refunds of reproduction fees. 
This rule also does not have any Federalism implications.
    This rule is effective upon publication for good cause as permitted 
by the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). NARA believes 
that a public comment period is unnecessary as this rule merely 
shortens the recently added refund request period to bring it in line 
with similar periods at other research and archival institutions, such 
as the Library of Congress.
