DATES: [Docket No. EP 716 (Sub-No. 4)] FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Civil Monetary Penalties—2019 Adjustment Surface Transportation Board. Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 The Surface Transportation Board (Board) is issuing a final rule to implement the annual inflationary adjustment to its civil monetary penalties, pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. SUMMARY: [FR Doc. 2018–28294 Filed 12–28–18; 8:45 am] 15:57 Dec 28, 2018 Jkt 247001 Jonathon Binet: (202) 245–0368. Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) for the hearing impaired: (800) 877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 I. Background The Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (2015 Act), enacted as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, Public Law 114–74, 701, 129 Stat. 584, 599– 601, requires agencies to adjust their civil penalties for inflation annually, beginning on July 1, 2016, and no later than January 15 of every year thereafter. In accordance with the 2015 Act, annual inflation adjustments are to be based on the percent change between the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI–U) for October of the E:\FR\FM\31DER1.SGM 31DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 249 / Monday, December 31, 2018 / Rules and Regulations previous year and the October CPI–U of the year before that. Penalty level adjustments should be rounded to the nearest dollar. II. Discussion The statutory definition of civil monetary penalty covers various civil penalty provisions under the Rail (Part A); Motor Carriers, Water Carriers, Brokers, and Freight Forwarders (Part B); and Pipeline Carriers (Part C) provisions of the Interstate Commerce Act, as amended. The Board’s civil (and criminal) penalty authority related to rail transportation appears at 49 U.S.C. 11901–11908. The Board’s penalty authority related to motor carriers, water carriers, brokers, and freight forwarders appears at 49 U.S.C. 14901–14916. The Board’s penalty authority related to pipeline carriers appears at 49 U.S.C. 16101–16106.1 The Board has regulations at 49 CFR pt. 1022 that codify the method set forth in the 2015 Act for annually adjusting for inflation the civil monetary penalties within the Board’s jurisdiction. As set forth in this final rule, the Board is amending 49 CFR pt. 1022 to make an annual inflation adjustment to the civil monetary penalties in conformance with the requirements of the 2015 Act. The adjusted penalties set forth in the rule will apply only to violations that occur after the effective date of this regulation. In accordance with the 2015 Act, the annual adjustment adopted here is calculated by multiplying each current penalty by the cost-of-living adjustment factor of 1.02522, which reflects the percentage change between the October 2018 CPI–U (252.885) and the October 2017 CPI–U (246.663). The table at the end of this decision shows the statutory citation for each civil penalty, a description of the provision, the adjusted statutory civil penalty level for 2018, and the adjusted statutory civil penalty level for 2019. III. Final Rule The final rule set forth at the end of this decision is being issued without notice and comment pursuant to the rulemaking provision of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), which does not require that process ‘‘when the agency for good cause finds’’ that public notice and comment are ‘‘unnecessary.’’ Here, Congress has mandated that the agency make an annual inflation adjustment to its civil monetary penalties. The Board has no discretion to set alternative levels of adjusted civil monetary penalties, because the amount of the inflation adjustment must be calculated in accordance with the statutory formula. Given the absence of discretion, the Board has determined that there is good cause to promulgate this rule without soliciting public comment and to make this regulation effective immediately upon publication. IV. Regulatory Flexibility Statement The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements, unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Because the Board has determined that notice and comment are not required under the APA for this rulemaking, the requirements of the RFA do not apply. V. Paperwork Reduction Act This final rule does not contain a new or amended information collection requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501– 3521.

[Docket No. EP 716 (Sub-No. 4)]


Civil Monetary Penalties--2019 Adjustment

AGENCY: Surface Transportation Board.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Surface Transportation Board (Board) is issuing a final 
rule to implement the annual inflationary adjustment to its civil 
monetary penalties, pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation 
Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015.

DATES: This final rule is effective on December 31, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jonathon Binet: (202) 245-0368. 
Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) for the hearing impaired: 
(800) 877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements 
Act of 2015 (2015 Act), enacted as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 
2015, Public Law 114-74, 701, 129 Stat. 584, 599-601, requires agencies 
to adjust their civil penalties for inflation annually, beginning on 
July 1, 2016, and no later than January 15 of every year thereafter. In 
accordance with the 2015 Act, annual inflation adjustments are to be 
based on the percent change between the Consumer Price Index for all 
Urban Consumers (CPI-U) for October of the

[[Page 67699]]

previous year and the October CPI-U of the year before that. Penalty 
level adjustments should be rounded to the nearest dollar.

II. Discussion

    The statutory definition of civil monetary penalty covers various 
civil penalty provisions under the Rail (Part A); Motor Carriers, Water 
Carriers, Brokers, and Freight Forwarders (Part B); and Pipeline 
Carriers (Part C) provisions of the Interstate Commerce Act, as 
amended. The Board's civil (and criminal) penalty authority related to 
rail transportation appears at 49 U.S.C. 11901-11908. The Board's 
penalty authority related to motor carriers, water carriers, brokers, 
and freight forwarders appears at 49 U.S.C. 14901-14916. The Board's 
penalty authority related to pipeline carriers appears at 49 U.S.C. 
16101-16106.\1\ The Board has regulations at 49 CFR pt. 1022 that 
codify the method set forth in the 2015 Act for annually adjusting for 
inflation the civil monetary penalties within the Board's jurisdiction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Board also has various criminal penalty authority, 
enforceable in a federal criminal court. Congress has not, however, 
authorized federal agencies to adjust statutorily prescribed 
criminal penalty provisions for inflation, and this rule does not 
address those provisions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As set forth in this final rule, the Board is amending 49 CFR pt. 
1022 to make an annual inflation adjustment to the civil monetary 
penalties in conformance with the requirements of the 2015 Act. The 
adjusted penalties set forth in the rule will apply only to violations 
that occur after the effective date of this regulation.
    In accordance with the 2015 Act, the annual adjustment adopted here 
is calculated by multiplying each current penalty by the cost-of-living 
adjustment factor of 1.02522, which reflects the percentage change 
between the October 2018 CPI-U (252.885) and the October 2017 CPI-U 
(246.663). The table at the end of this decision shows the statutory 
citation for each civil penalty, a description of the provision, the 
adjusted statutory civil penalty level for 2018, and the adjusted 
statutory civil penalty level for 2019.

III. Final Rule

    The final rule set forth at the end of this decision is being 
issued without notice and comment pursuant to the rulemaking provision 
of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), which 
does not require that process ``when the agency for good cause finds'' 
that public notice and comment are ``unnecessary.'' Here, Congress has 
mandated that the agency make an annual inflation adjustment to its 
civil monetary penalties. The Board has no discretion to set 
alternative levels of adjusted civil monetary penalties, because the 
amount of the inflation adjustment must be calculated in accordance 
with the statutory formula. Given the absence of discretion, the Board 
has determined that there is good cause to promulgate this rule without 
soliciting public comment and to make this regulation effective 
immediately upon publication.

IV. Regulatory Flexibility Statement

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, 
generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility 
analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking 
requirements, unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
Because the Board has determined that notice and comment are not 
required under the APA for this rulemaking, the requirements of the RFA 
do not apply.

V. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This final rule does not contain a new or amended information 
collection requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
44 U.S.C. 3501-3521.
