AGENCY: ACTION: This notice provides the semiannual agenda of rules scheduled for review or development between fall 2018 and fall 2019. The Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order 12866 require publication of the agenda. ADDRESSES: Unless otherwise indicated, all agency contacts are located at the SUMMARY: Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20240. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You should direct all comments and inquiries about these rules to the appropriate agency contact. You should direct general comments relating to the agenda to the Office of Executive Secretariat and Regulatory Affairs, Department of the Interior, at the address above or at 202–208–3181. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: With this publication, the Department satisfies the requirement of Executive Order 12866 that the Department publish an agenda of rules that we have issued or expect to issue and of currently effective rules that we have scheduled for review. Simultaneously, the Department meets the requirement of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) to publish an agenda in April and October of each year identifying rules that will have significant economic effects on a substantial number of small entities. We have specifically identified in the agenda rules that will have such effects. This edition of the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions includes The Regulatory Plan, which appears in both the online Unified Agenda and in part II of the Federal Register that includes the Unified Agenda. The Department’s Statement of Regulatory Priorities is included in the Plan. In some cases, the Department has withdrawn rules that were placed on previous agendas for which there has been no publication activity or for which a proposed or interim rule was published. There is no legal significance to the omission of an item from this agenda. Withdrawal of a rule does not necessarily mean that the Department will not proceed with the rulemaking. Withdrawal allows the Department to assess the action further and determine whether rulemaking is appropriate. Following such an assessment, the Department may determine that certain rules listed as withdrawn under this agenda are appropriate for promulgation. If that determination is made, such rules will comply with Executive Order 13771. Juliette Lillie, Director, Executive Secretariat and Regulatory Affairs.

Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Interior.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

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

SUMMARY: This notice provides the semiannual agenda of rules scheduled 
for review or development between fall 2018 and fall 2019. The 
Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order 12866 require 
publication of the agenda.

ADDRESSES: Unless otherwise indicated, all agency contacts are located 
at the Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Washington, DC 
20240.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You should direct all comments and 
inquiries about these rules to the appropriate agency contact. You 
should direct general comments relating to the agenda to the Office of 
Executive Secretariat and Regulatory Affairs, Department of the 
Interior, at the address above or at 202-208-3181.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: With this publication, the Department 
satisfies the requirement of Executive Order 12866 that the Department 
publish an agenda of rules that we have issued or expect to issue and 
of currently effective rules that we have scheduled for review.
    Simultaneously, the Department meets the requirement of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) to publish an agenda 
in April and October of each year identifying rules that will have 
significant economic effects on a substantial number of small entities. 
We have specifically identified in the agenda rules that will have such 
effects.
    This edition of the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and 
Deregulatory Actions includes The Regulatory Plan, which appears in 
both the online Unified Agenda and in part II of the Federal Register 
that includes the Unified Agenda. The Department's Statement of 
Regulatory Priorities is included in the Plan.
    In some cases, the Department has withdrawn rules that were placed 
on previous agendas for which there has been no publication activity or 
for which a proposed or interim rule was published. There is no legal 
significance to the omission of an item from this agenda. Withdrawal of 
a rule does not necessarily mean that the Department will not proceed 
with the rulemaking. Withdrawal allows the Department to assess the 
action further and determine whether rulemaking is appropriate. 
Following such an assessment, the Department may determine that certain 
rules listed as withdrawn under this agenda are appropriate for 
promulgation. If that determination is made, such rules will comply 
with Executive Order 13771.

315. Migratory Bird Hunting; 2019-2020 Migratory Game Bird Hunting 
Regulations

    Abstract: We propose to establish annual hunting regulations for 
certain migratory game birds for the 2019-2020 hunting season. We 
annually prescribe outside limits (frameworks), within which States may 
select hunting seasons. This proposed rule provides the regulatory 
schedule, describes the proposed regulatory alternatives for the 2019-
2020 duck hunting seasons, and requests proposals from Indian tribes 
that wish to establish special migratory game bird hunting regulations 
on Federal Indian reservations and ceded lands. Migratory game bird 
hunting seasons provide opportunities for recreation and sustenance; 
aid Federal, State, and Tribal governments in the management of 
migratory game birds; and permit harvests at levels compatible with 
migratory game bird population status and habitat conditions.

    Abstract: This is a series of rulemaking actions to establish 
annual hunting regulations for certain migratory game birds for the 
2018-19 hunting season. We annually prescribe outside limits 
(frameworks), within which States may select hunting seasons. We also 
request proposals from Indian tribes that wish to establish special 
migratory bird hunting regulations on Federal Indian reservations and 
ceded lands. Migratory game bird hunting seasons provide opportunities 
for recreation and sustenance; aid Federal, State, and Tribal 
governments in the management of migratory game birds; and permit 
harvests at levels compatible with migratory game bird population 
status and habitat conditions.

317. Risk Management, Financial Assurance and Loss Prevention

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Other.
    Legal Authority: 43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq.
    Abstract: As directed by E.O. 13795, BOEM has reconsidered its 
financial assurance policies reflected in Notice to Lessees No. 2016-
N01 (September 12, 2016). This rule will modify the policies 
established in the 2016 Notice to Lessees to ensure operator compliance 
with lease terms while minimizing unnecessary regulatory burdens, and 
codify the modifications.
