Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions

AGENCY: General Services Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

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

SUMMARY: This agenda announces the proposed regulatory actions that GSA 
plans for the next 12 months and those that were completed since the 
spring 2018 edition. This agenda was developed under the guidelines of 
Executive Orders (E.O.) 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' as 
amended, Executive Order 13771, ``Reducing Regulation and Controlling 
Regulatory Costs,'' and Executive Order 13563, ``Improving Regulation 
and Regulatory Review.'' GSA's purpose in publishing this agenda is to 
allow interested persons an opportunity to participate in the 
rulemaking process. GSA also invites interested persons to recommend 
existing significant regulations for review to determine whether they 
should be modified or eliminated. Published proposed and final rules 
may be reviewed in their entirety at the Government's rulemaking 
website at http://www.regulations.gov.
    The complete Unified Agenda will be available online at 
www.reginfo.gov.
    Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the 
regulatory flexibility agendas required by the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act (5 U.S.C. 602), GSA's printed agenda entries include only:
    (1) Rules that are in the Agency's 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) Any rules that the Agency has 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, including GSA's 
regulatory plan.
