AGENCY: II. Regulatory Procedures The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is amending its regulations to reflect a change of address for its headquarters. This technical amendment is a nomenclature change that updates and corrects the address for contacting and submitting requests to EAC headquarters. DATES: Effective October 25, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Clifford Tatum, General Counsel, U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 1335 East-West Highway, Suite 4300, Silver Spring, MD 20910; Telephone: 301– 563–3957. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 17, 2013 EAC’s Headquarters relocated from 1201 New York Avenue NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20005 to 1335 East-West Highway, Suite 4300, Silver Spring, MD 20910.

The main office dial-in number is 866–747–1471 (toll free) or 301–563–3919. Employee numbers can be accessed via the telephone tree. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: I. Statutory Authority This action is taken under EAC’s authority, at 5 U.S.C. 552, to publish regulations in the Federal Register. Under the Administrative Procedure Act, at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), statutory procedures for agency rulemaking do not apply ‘‘when the agency for good cause finds (and incorporates the finding and a brief statement of reasons VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:53 Oct 24, 2018 Jkt 247001 therefore in the rules issued) that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ EAC finds that such notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, on the grounds that: (1) These amendments are technical and non-substantive; and (2) the public benefits from timely notification of a change in the official agency address, and further delay is unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Similarly, because this final rule makes no substantive changes and merely reflects a change of address in existing regulations, this final rule is not subject to the effective date limitation of 5 U.S.C. 553(d). A. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), EAC has determined that this rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The regulation affects only the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. This rule does not require a general notice of proposed rulemaking and, therefore, is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. B. Collection of Information This regulation contains no new information collection requirements subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). C. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. EAC analyzed this rule under that Executive Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. D. Taking of Private Property This rule will not affect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. F. Protection of Children EAC analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. G. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have Tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes. H. Energy Effects EAC analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. I. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use E:\FR\FM\25OCR1.SGM 25OCR1 53802 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 207 / Thursday, October 25, 2018 / Rules and Regulations technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. J. Environment EAC analyzed this final rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 which guides EAC in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4365), and concluded that this rule is part of a category of actions described in item A3 of Table 1 in Appendix A of the Management Directive. This rulemaking does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment and, therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is necessary. K. Congressional Review Act EAC will submit this final rule to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act. The rule is effective upon publication, as permitted by 5 U.S.C. 808. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 808(2), EAC finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register, based on the reasons cited in the preceding paragraph for the 553(b)(3)(B) determination.

ELECTION ASSISTANCE COMMISSION

11 CFR Parts 9405, 9407, 9409, 9410, 9420, and 9428


Change of Address

AGENCY: United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC).

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is amending its 
regulations to reflect a change of address for its headquarters. This 
technical amendment is a nomenclature change that updates and corrects 
the address for contacting and submitting requests to EAC headquarters.

DATES: Effective October 25, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Clifford Tatum, General Counsel, U.S. 
Election Assistance Commission, 1335 East-West Highway, Suite 4300, 
Silver Spring, MD 20910; Telephone: 301-563-3957.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 17, 2013 EAC's Headquarters 
relocated from 1201 New York Avenue NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20005 
to 1335 East-West Highway, Suite 4300, Silver Spring, MD 20910. This 
address appears as EAC's official agency address and serves as the 
reception point for agency visitors. Telephone numbers for EAC 
employees have changed to 301 Maryland area codes. The main office 
dial-in number is 866-747-1471 (toll free) or 301-563-3919. Employee 
numbers can be accessed via the telephone tree.

I. Statutory Authority

    This action is taken under EAC's authority, at 5 U.S.C. 552, to 
publish regulations in the Federal Register. Under the Administrative 
Procedure Act, at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), statutory procedures for 
agency rulemaking do not apply ``when the agency for good cause finds 
(and incorporates the finding and a brief statement of reasons 
therefore in the rules issued) that notice and public procedure thereon 
are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.'' 
EAC finds that such notice and public procedure are impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, on the grounds that: 
(1) These amendments are technical and non-substantive; and (2) the 
public benefits from timely notification of a change in the official 
agency address, and further delay is unnecessary and contrary to the 
public interest. Similarly, because this final rule makes no 
substantive changes and merely reflects a change of address in existing 
regulations, this final rule is not subject to the effective date 
limitation of 5 U.S.C. 553(d).

II. Regulatory Procedures

A. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), EAC has 
determined that this rule would not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The regulation affects only 
the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. This rule does not require a 
general notice of proposed rulemaking and, therefore, is exempt from 
the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

B. Collection of Information

    This regulation contains no new information collection requirements 
subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

C. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. EAC analyzed this rule under that 
Executive Order and have determined that it does not have implications 
for federalism.

D. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not affect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

E. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

F. Protection of Children

    EAC analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of 
Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is 
not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

G. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have Tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes.

H. Energy Effects

    EAC analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy.

I. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be 
inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary 
consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of 
materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling 
procedures; and related management systems practices) that are 
developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule 
does not use

[[Page 53802]]

technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of 
voluntary consensus standards.

J. Environment

    EAC analyzed this final rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 which guides EAC in complying with the 
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4365), 
and concluded that this rule is part of a category of actions described 
in item A3 of Table 1 in Appendix A of the Management Directive. This 
rulemaking does not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment and, therefore, neither an 
environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is 
necessary.

K. Congressional Review Act

    EAC will submit this final rule to Congress and the Government 
Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act. The 
rule is effective upon publication, as permitted by 5 U.S.C. 808. 
Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 808(2), EAC finds that good cause exists for 
making this rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register, 
based on the reasons cited in the preceding paragraph for the 
553(b)(3)(B) determination.
