SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background FCIC amends the Common Crop Insurance Regulations by revising 7 CFR 457.161 Canola and Rapeseed Crop Insurance Provisions to be effective for the 2021 and succeeding crop years. The changes to 7 CFR 457.161 Canola and Rapeseed Crop Insurance Provisions are as follows: 1. Section 1—FCIC is revising the definition of ‘‘harvest’’ to incorporate a new term, ‘‘pushed’’, that is being added to section 1. The definition specifies that canola that is swathed prior to combining is not considered harvested. The revised definition says that canola that is swathed or pushed prior to combining is not considered harvested. FCIC is adding the definition of ‘‘latest final planting date’’ to specify the final planting date for those counties that have only spring-planted acreage, only fall-planted acreage, or both springplanted and fall-planted acreage. FCIC is adding a definition of ‘‘prevented planting’’ to specify it is the same definition found in the Basic Provisions except that the references to ‘‘final planting date’’ contained in the definition in the Basic Provisions are replaced with the ‘‘latest final planting date.’’ This is consistent with other crop provisions that have both fall and spring planted acreage.

[Docket No. USDA-2020-0004]


Department of Agriculture Regulations for Grants and Agreements; 
Update of Citations

AGENCY: Office of the Chief Financial Officer, USDA.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This final rule amends the regulations of several United 
States Department of Agriculture agencies to correct outdated citations 
to the Department's grants and agreements regulations.

DATES: Effective May 28, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Tyson Whitney, Director, 
Transparency & Accountability Reporting Division, Office of the Chief 
Financial Officer, USDA, 1400 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 
20250-2011; phone (202) 720-8978.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The regulations in 2 CFR chapter IV set 
forth the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) regulations 
for grants and agreements. The regulations in part 417 were established 
in a final rule published May 25, 2010 (75 FR 29185), the regulations 
in part 421 in a final rule published December 8, 2011 (76 FR 76610), 
and the remainder of the chapter (parts 400, 415, 416, 418, and 422) in 
a final rule published December 19, 2014 (79 FR 75982). The regulations 
in 2 CFR chapter IV updated and replaced provisions that had previously 
been found in 7 CFR parts 3015 through 3019, 3021, and 3052.
    The regulations of several USDA agencies in title 7 refer to and 
cite the grants and agreements regulations. Following the publication 
of the various final rules establishing the regulations in 2 CFR 
chapter IV, those agencies updated their regulations so that they 
referred to the new grants and agreements regulations in title 2 rather 
than the predecessor regulations in Title 7. However, we have 
identified a number of instances where the necessary updates were 
inadvertently overlooked. This final rule makes those updates.

Effective Date

    This rule relates to internal agency management and makes various 
nonsubstantive changes to the regulations in title 7, Code of Federal 
Regulations to correct outdated citations to the Department's grants 
and agreements regulations. Accordingly, notice and other public 
procedure on this rule are unnecessary and contrary to the public 
interest. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553, notice of proposed 
rulemaking and opportunity to comment are not required, and this rule 
may be made effective less than 30 days after publication in the 
Federal Register. Further, since this rule relates to internal agency 
management, it is exempt from the provisions of Executive Orders 12866, 
12988, and 13771. Finally, this action is not a rule as defined by the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 501) and, thus, is exempt from the 
provisions of that Act.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This final rule contains no new reporting, recordkeeping, or third-
party disclosure requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
