SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    To promote transparency in regulatory planning, the Administration, 
beginning with the Spring 2017 Unified Agenda of Regulatory and 
Deregulatory Actions, published for the first time an ``inactive'' list 
of agency regulatory actions that were under review but not included in 
the Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions. Such 
``inactive'' actions allow agencies to take additional time to review a 
regulatory or deregulatory action and to preserve the regulatory 
identification number (RIN) and title for possible future use. After 
further review, and to clean out a backlog of older, obsolete RINs, 
USDA is taking this action to reduce its regulatory backlog and focus 
its resources on higher priority actions. The Department's actions are 
part of an overall regulatory reform strategy to reduce regulatory 
burden on the public and to ensure that future Unified Agendas of 
Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions provided the public accurate 
information about rulemakings the Department intends to undertake. USDA 
reviewed its pending regulatory actions listed as ``inactive.'' This 
review focused on interim rules that published in the Federal Register 
more than 3 years ago, and for which no final rule has been issued. The 
agency identified 20 such regulatory actions.
    Although not required to do so by the Administrative Procedure Act 
or by regulations of the Office of the Federal Register, the agency 
believes the public interest is best served by announcing in the 
Federal Register that it has fully implemented these 20 items. 
Therefore, for the reasons set forth above, USDA announces that it has 
fully completed the 20 rulemaking initiatives which were published in 
the Federal Register on the dates indicated in the table below and that 
no further rulemaking publication is required.
