SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Backgrounds ATF administers regulations published in 27 CFR part 555, concerning commerce in explosives. ATF identified several technical amendments that are needed to update VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:38 Apr 05, 2019 Jkt 247001 and to provide clarity to these regulations. Rather than make substantive changes to the regulations, these amendments focus on improving the clarity and accuracy of the regulations. Many of the technical changes reflect the removal of expired or obsolete regulations; removal of regulations that are no longer necessary; and the correction of dates, titles, addresses, and telephone numbers. Additionally, technical changes to § 555.11 reflect a change in nomenclature resulting from the transfer of ATF to the Department of Justice from the Department of the Treasury pursuant to the Homeland Security Act of 2002. Section 555.11 is being amended to remove paragraph (a) and revise paragraph (b) in the definitions of ‘‘ATF’’, ‘‘ATF Officer’’, ‘‘Bureau’’, and ‘‘Director’’ as the information in the regulations is obsolete, to revise the definition of ‘‘Director, Industry Operations’’ for accuracy, and to replace ‘‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms’’ with ‘‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Department of Justice’’ in the definition of ‘‘Region’’ as the current definition references the name of the agency under the Department of the Treasury, prior to the Homeland Security Act of 2002. Section 555.27 is being removed and reserved as the requirement in the statute that this regulation implemented is expired and obsolete. Section 555.30 is being amended to reflect the correct nationwide toll-free telephone number, and the reference to Form 4712 is being removed as this information is no longer necessary and is obsolete. Sections 555.33, 555.142, and 555.165 are being amended to remove the effective dates, which are no longer necessary. Sections 555.41, 555.49, 555.51, 555.103, and 555.125 are being amended to remove and reserve paragraph (a) in each of these sections as the information in those paragraphs is obsolete. Section 555.45 is being amended to remove and reserve paragraphs (a) and (b) as the information in those paragraphs is obsolete. Section 555.57 is being amended to remove ‘‘For all licenses or permits issued on and after May 24, 2003’’ as this delineation is no longer necessary. Section 555.102 is being amended to remove paragraph (b)(1) and revise paragraph (b)(2) as the information in those paragraphs is obsolete. Section 555.105 is being amended to remove the reference to nonlicensees and nonpermittees in the heading of the PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 section, and to remove and reserve paragraph (a) as the information in the regulation is obsolete. Section 555.126 is being amended to revise the heading of the section, and to remove and reserve paragraph (a) as the information in the regulation is obsolete. Section 555.201 is being amended to remove and reserve paragraph (e) as the application of this paragraph is obsolete. Section 555.202 is being amended to remove ‘‘See also § 555.201(e).’’ as the referenced sentence is obsolete. Section 555.218 is being amended to remove the date ‘‘July, 1991’’ from the table title and replace it with ‘‘June 1991’’, the correct date. Section 555.219 is being amended to add the title of the table, as the title was incorrectly added to the table in 555.220 when published in the Federal Register. Section 555.220 is being amended to remove the title above the table and remove the address for the Fertilizer Institute, as this information is incorrect. Section 555.224 is being amended to remove ‘‘(30 days from the date of publication of the final rule in the Federal Register)’’ and to add the effective date in the third footnote. II. Statutory Orders and Executive Review A. Executive Orders 12866, 13563, and 13771 This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with Executive Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review,’’ section 1(b), The Principles of Regulation; Executive Order 13563, ‘‘Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,’’ section 1(b), General Principles of Regulation; and Executive Order 13771, ‘‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs.’’ The rule makes technical corrections to eliminate outdated and incorrect terminology and improve the clarity of the regulations, and makes no substantive changes. The Department has determined that this final rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ as defined in Executive Order 12866, section 3(f). Accordingly, this final rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. Finally, because this rule is not a significant regulatory action, it is not subject to the requirements of Executive Order 13771. There are no costs associated with this regulation; however, it benefits the industry in that it removes numerous outdated regulations and provides clarity for the regulated industry. Because there are no costs associated with this final rule, E:\FR\FM\08APR1.SGM 08APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 67 / Monday, April 8, 2019 / Rules and Regulations there are no monetized benefits. This rule is considered a deregulatory action under Executive Order 13771. B. Executive Order 13132 This final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with section 6 of Executive Order 13132, ‘‘Federalism,’’ the Attorney General has determined that this regulation does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement. C. Executive Order 12988 This regulation meets the applicable standards set forth in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, ‘‘Civil Justice Reform.’’ D. Administrative Procedure Act Under the Administrative Procedure Act (‘‘APA’’), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), an agency may, for good cause, find that the usual requirements of prior notice and comment are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. Currently, 27 CFR part 555 contains references to expired regulations and has obsolete, outdated, and incorrect terminology that may be confusing to the public. The rule makes technical corrections to improve the clarity of the regulations and makes no substantive changes. For these reasons, the agency has determined that publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking and providing opportunity for public comment is unnecessary. Further, the APA permits an agency to make this rule effective upon date of publication, because it is not a substantive rule. See 5 U.S.C. 553(d). Furthermore, the Department finds that there is good cause for the final rule to take effect upon publication, since the revisions made by this rule are minor, non-substantive, and technical, and there is no reason to delay these changes. Id., § 553(d)(3). jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with RULES E. Regulatory Flexibility Act In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 603, 604, and 605(b), a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required for this final rule because the Department was not required to publish a general notice of proposed rulemaking for this matter. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:49 Apr 05, 2019 Jkt 247001 F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1531–1535. G. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This final rule does not impose any new reporting or recordkeeping requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521. H. Congressional Review Act This rule is not a major rule as defined by the Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 804.

Background On March 30, 2012, EPA finalized a limited approval and a limited disapproval of SIP revisions submitted by Kentucky on June 25, 2008, and May 28, 2010, addressing regional haze program requirements.1 The limited disapproval of these SIP revisions was based upon, and limited to, the Commonwealth’s reliance on CAIR as an alternative to best available retrofit technology (BART) for nitrogen oxide (NOX) and SO2 at certain electric generating units (EGUs); as a measure for reasonable progress with respect to SO2 emissions from these units during the first implementation period; 2 and as an element of a long-term strategy (LTS) for achieving its reasonable progress goals (RPGs).3 In the March 30, 2012, 1 See 77 FR 19098. approved Kentucky’s determination in its regional haze SIP revisions to focus solely on evaluating SO2 emissions from EGU and non-EGU point sources in its reasonable progress analysis for the first implementation period. See 77 FR 19098 (March 30, 2012). Kentucky based its determination on a sensitivity analysis from the Visibility Improvement State and Tribal Association of the Southeast (VISTAS) regional planning organization demonstrating that sulfate particles resulting from SO2 emissions are the dominant contributor to visibility impairment on the 20 percent worst days at all Class I areas in the VISTAS states, including Kentucky. For more information, see 76 FR 78194 (December 16, 2011). 3 EPA demonstrated that CAIR would achieve greater reasonable progress than BART in revisions to the regional haze program made in 2005. See 70 FR 39104 (July 6, 2005). In those revisions, EPA amended its regulations to provide that states participating in the CAIR cap-and-trade programs pursuant to an EPA-approved CAIR SIP or states that remain subject to a CAIR FIP need not require affected BART-eligible EGUs to install, operate, and maintain BART for emissions of SO2 and NOX. As a result of EPA’s determination that CAIR was ‘‘better-than-BART,’’ a number of states in the CAIR region, including Kentucky, relied on the CAIR capand-trade programs as an alternative to BART for EGU emissions of SO2 and NOX in designing their regional haze plans. These states also relied on CAIR as an element of an LTS for achieving their reasonable progress goals (RPGs) for their regional haze programs. However, in 2008, the United States 2 EPA E:\FR\FM\08APR1.SGM 08APR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Backgrounds

    ATF administers regulations published in 27 CFR part 555, 
concerning commerce in explosives. ATF identified several technical 
amendments that are needed to update and to provide clarity to these 
regulations.
    Rather than make substantive changes to the regulations, these 
amendments focus on improving the clarity and accuracy of the 
regulations. Many of the technical changes reflect the removal of 
expired or obsolete regulations; removal of regulations that are no 
longer necessary; and the correction of dates, titles, addresses, and 
telephone numbers. Additionally, technical changes to Sec.  555.11 
reflect a change in nomenclature resulting from the transfer of ATF to 
the Department of Justice from the Department of the Treasury pursuant 
to the Homeland Security Act of 2002.
    Section 555.11 is being amended to remove paragraph (a) and revise 
paragraph (b) in the definitions of ``ATF'', ``ATF Officer'', 
``Bureau'', and ``Director'' as the information in the regulations is 
obsolete, to revise the definition of ``Director, Industry Operations'' 
for accuracy, and to replace ``Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and 
Firearms'' with ``Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, 
Department of Justice'' in the definition of ``Region'' as the current 
definition references the name of the agency under the Department of 
the Treasury, prior to the Homeland Security Act of 2002.
    Section 555.27 is being removed and reserved as the requirement in 
the statute that this regulation implemented is expired and obsolete.
    Section 555.30 is being amended to reflect the correct nationwide 
toll-free telephone number, and the reference to Form 4712 is being 
removed as this information is no longer necessary and is obsolete.
    Sections 555.33, 555.142, and 555.165 are being amended to remove 
the effective dates, which are no longer necessary.
    Sections 555.41, 555.49, 555.51, 555.103, and 555.125 are being 
amended to remove and reserve paragraph (a) in each of these sections 
as the information in those paragraphs is obsolete.
    Section 555.45 is being amended to remove and reserve paragraphs 
(a) and (b) as the information in those paragraphs is obsolete.
    Section 555.57 is being amended to remove ``For all licenses or 
permits issued on and after May 24, 2003'' as this delineation is no 
longer necessary.
    Section 555.102 is being amended to remove paragraph (b)(1) and 
revise paragraph (b)(2) as the information in those paragraphs is 
obsolete.
    Section 555.105 is being amended to remove the reference to 
nonlicensees and nonpermittees in the heading of the section, and to 
remove and reserve paragraph (a) as the information in the regulation 
is obsolete.
    Section 555.126 is being amended to revise the heading of the 
section, and to remove and reserve paragraph (a) as the information in 
the regulation is obsolete.
    Section 555.201 is being amended to remove and reserve paragraph 
(e) as the application of this paragraph is obsolete.
    Section 555.202 is being amended to remove ``See also Sec.  
555.201(e).'' as the referenced sentence is obsolete.
    Section 555.218 is being amended to remove the date ``July, 1991'' 
from the table title and replace it with ``June 1991'', the correct 
date.
    Section 555.219 is being amended to add the title of the table, as 
the title was incorrectly added to the table in 555.220 when published 
in the Federal Register.
    Section 555.220 is being amended to remove the title above the 
table and remove the address for the Fertilizer Institute, as this 
information is incorrect.
    Section 555.224 is being amended to remove ``(30 days from the date 
of publication of the final rule in the Federal Register)'' and to add 
the effective date in the third footnote.

II. Statutory Orders and Executive Review

A. Executive Orders 12866, 13563, and 13771

    This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with 
Executive Order 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' section 
1(b), The Principles of Regulation; Executive Order 13563, ``Improving 
Regulation and Regulatory Review,'' section 1(b), General Principles of 
Regulation; and Executive Order 13771, ``Reducing Regulation and 
Controlling Regulatory Costs.''
    The rule makes technical corrections to eliminate outdated and 
incorrect terminology and improve the clarity of the regulations, and 
makes no substantive changes. The Department has determined that this 
final rule is not a ``significant regulatory action'' as defined in 
Executive Order 12866, section 3(f). Accordingly, this final rule has 
not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.
    Finally, because this rule is not a significant regulatory action, 
it is not subject to the requirements of Executive Order 13771. There 
are no costs associated with this regulation; however, it benefits the 
industry in that it removes numerous outdated regulations and provides 
clarity for the regulated industry. Because there are no costs 
associated with this final rule,

[[Page 13799]]

there are no monetized benefits. This rule is considered a deregulatory 
action under Executive Order 13771.

B. Executive Order 13132

    This final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the 
States, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the 
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with section 6 
of Executive Order 13132, ``Federalism,'' the Attorney General has 
determined that this regulation does not have sufficient federalism 
implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact 
statement.

C. Executive Order 12988

    This regulation meets the applicable standards set forth in 
sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, ``Civil Justice 
Reform.''

D. Administrative Procedure Act

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (``APA''), 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B), an agency may, for good cause, find that the usual 
requirements of prior notice and comment are impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. Currently, 27 CFR part 
555 contains references to expired regulations and has obsolete, 
outdated, and incorrect terminology that may be confusing to the 
public. The rule makes technical corrections to improve the clarity of 
the regulations and makes no substantive changes. For these reasons, 
the agency has determined that publishing a notice of proposed 
rulemaking and providing opportunity for public comment is unnecessary.
    Further, the APA permits an agency to make this rule effective upon 
date of publication, because it is not a substantive rule. See 5 U.S.C. 
553(d). Furthermore, the Department finds that there is good cause for 
the final rule to take effect upon publication, since the revisions 
made by this rule are minor, non-substantive, and technical, and there 
is no reason to delay these changes. Id., Sec.  553(d)(3).

E. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 603, 
604, and 605(b), a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required for 
this final rule because the Department was not required to publish a 
general notice of proposed rulemaking for this matter.

F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and 
tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 
million or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed 
necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 
1995, 2 U.S.C. 1531-1535.

G. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    This final rule does not impose any new reporting or recordkeeping 
requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521.

H. Congressional Review Act

    This rule is not a major rule as defined by the Congressional 
Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 804.
