Regulatory Planning and Review (E.O. 12866) Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 provides that the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will review all significant rules. OIRA has determined that this rule is not significant. E.O. 13563 reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 while calling for improvements in the Nation’s regulatory system to promote predictability, to reduce uncertainty, and to use the best, most innovative, and least burdensome tools for achieving regulatory ends. The E.O. directs agencies to consider regulatory approaches that reduce burdens and maintain flexibility and freedom of choice for the public where these approaches are relevant, feasible, 16:17 Jun 23, 2020 This action is not an E.O. 13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under Executive Order 12866. C. Regulatory Flexibility Act SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 B. Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs (E.O. 13771) Jkt 250001 The Department of the Interior certifies that this document will not have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). It does not change current funding requirements and would not impose any economic effects on small governmental entities. D. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act, because this rule does nothing more than update a Federal agency address. This rule: (a) Will not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more. (b) Will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government agencies, or geographic regions. (c) Will not have significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of the U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises. E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act This rule does not impose an unfunded mandate on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector of more than $100 million per year. The rule does not have a significant or unique effect on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector. A statement containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) is not required. F. Takings (E.O. 12630) This rule does not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under E.O. 12630. A takings implication assessment is not required. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 37747 G. Federalism (E.O. 13132) Under the criteria in section 1 of E.O. 13132, this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement. A federalism summary impact statement is not required. H. Civil Justice Reform (E.O. 12988) This rule complies with the requirements of E.O. 12988. Specifically, this rule: (a) Meets the criteria of section 3(a) requiring that all regulations be reviewed to eliminate errors and ambiguity and be written to minimize litigation; and (b) meets the criteria of section 3(b)(2) requiring that all regulations be written in clear language and contain clear legal standards. I. Consultation With Indian Tribes (E.O. 13175) The Department of the Interior strives to strengthen its government-togovernment relationship with Indian Tribes through a commitment to consultation with Indian Tribes and recognition of their right to selfgovernance and Tribal sovereignty. We have evaluated this rule under the Department’s consultation policy and under the criteria in E.O. 13175 and have determined there are no substantial direct effects on federally recognized Indian Tribes that will result from this rulemaking because the rule is limited to updating an address. J. Paperwork Reduction Act OMB Control No. 1076–0172 currently authorizes the collections of information related to approval of Tribal-State Class III gaming compacts, with an expiration of May 31, 2021. This rulemaking does not affect the currently authorized collection. The Department may not conduct or sponsor, and you are not required to respond to, any collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. K. National Environmental Policy Act This rule does not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. A detailed statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required because this is an administrative and procedural regulation. (For further information see 43 CFR 46.210(i)). We have also determined that the rule does not involve any of the extraordinary circumstances listed in 43 CFR 46.215 that would require further analysis under NEPA.

Determination To Issue Final Rule Without the Opportunity for Public Comment and With Immediate Effective Date BIA is taking this action under its authority, at 5 U.S.C. 552, to publish regulations in the Federal Register. Under the Administrative Procedure Act, statutory procedures for agency rulemaking do not apply ‘‘when the agency for good cause finds . . . that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). BIA finds that the notice and comment procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, because: (1) These amendments are non-substantive; and (2) the public benefits for timely notification of a change in the official agency address, and further delay is unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Similarly because this final rule makes no substantive changes and merely reflects a change of address and updates to titles in the existing regulations, this final rule is not subject to the effective date limitation of 5 U.S.C. 553(d).

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Federal Bureau of lnvestigation (FBI), a component of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ or Department), is finalizing without changes its Privacy Act exemption regulations for the system of records titled, ‘‘National Crime Information Center (NCIC),’’ JUSTICE/ FBI–001, which were published as a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on September 18, 2019. Specifically, the Department’s regulations will exempt the records maintained in JUSTICE/FBI– 001 from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act. The exemptions are necessary to avoid interference with the FBI’s law enforcement and national security functions and responsibilities. The Department received only one substantive comment on the proposed rule. SUMMARY: This final rule is effective July 24, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Katherine M. Bond, Assistant General Counsel, Privacy and Civil Liberties Unit, Office of the General Counsel, FBI, Washington, DC, telephone 202–324– 3000. DATES: On September 10, 2019, the FBI published in the Federal Register a modified System of Records Notice (SORN) for an FBI system of records titled, ‘‘National Crime Information Center (NCIC),’’ JUSTICE/FBI–001, 84 FR 47533. The NCIC is a national criminal justice information system linking criminal (and authorized non-criminal) justice agencies located in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories and possessions, and selected foreign countries to facilitate the cooperative sharing of criminal justice information. The NCIC provides a system to receive and maintain information contributed by participating agencies relating to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 criminal justice and national security. Information maintained in the NCIC is readily accessible for authorized criminal justice purposes by authorized users via text-based queries (i.e., using names and other descriptive data). On September 18, 2019, the FBI published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) proposing to amend its existing regulations exempting records maintained in JUSTICE/FBI–001 from certain provisions of the Privacy Act pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552aG) and (k), and inviting public comment on the proposed exemptions. 84 FR 49073. The comment period was open through October 18, 2019. DOJ received only one substantive comment responsive to the proposed exemptions. That comment, from the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), urged that ‘‘[a]ll of these proposals should be withdrawn,’’ so that the Department claims no Privacy Act exemptions at all for NCIC system of records. EPIC makes a number of claims, among which are the following: • ‘‘The over collection and maintenance of information that is unverified and unaccountable with no system for redress leaves personal data at a risk.’’ • ‘‘The FBI sets forward no reason that it should be able to maintain records irrelevant or unnecessary to accomplish a purpose of the agency.’’ • ‘‘[T]he categories of sources of records at minimum are essential in order to keep the government accountable throughout their data collection and law enforcement activities.’’ • ‘‘The exemptions as currently proposed are needlessly overbroad.’’ • ‘‘The NCIC has been known to have inaccurate and unreliable records, making it particularly unsuitable for vast exemptions from regulations designed to protect and optimize the accuracy and reliability of information held on people.’’ After consideration of the statements in this public comment from EPIC, the Department has determined that, to protect the ability of the FBI to properly engage in its law enforcement and national security functions, the exemptions as proposed in the NPRM are codified in this final rule for the reasons stated below. Response to Public Comments As stated above, the one substantive comment the FBI received regarding its NPRM urged the FBI to withdraw its proposed Privacy Act exemptions. While, generically, it might be true that ‘‘[t]he over collection and maintenance of information that is unverified and E:\FR\FM\24JNR1.SGM 24JNR1

Change of Address; Office of Indian Gaming for Submission of 
Tribal-State Class III Gaming Compacts

AGENCY: Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

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

SUMMARY: This rule updates the address for submission of Tribal-State 
Class III gaming compacts, amendments, and extensions in the Tribal-
State Class III Gaming Compact regulations.

DATES: Effective June 24, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Elizabeth Appel, Director, Office 
of Regulatory Affairs & Collaborative Action, Office of the Assistant 
Secretary--Indian Affairs, (202) 273-4680, [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department previously notified the 
public of the update to the Mail Stop for the Office of Indian Gaming 
by publication in the Federal Register. See 84 FR 71451 (December 27, 
2019). This rule updates the Mail Stop as listed in the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) at 25 CFR 293.9 to reflect the Office of Indian 
Gaming's new address for receipt of Tribal-State Class III gaming 
compacts. This update is necessary to ensure that the regulations 
provide an accurate Mail Stop for receipt by the Office of Indian 
Gaming to begin the 45-day timeline under 25 CFR 293.12.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review (E.O. 12866)

    Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 provides that the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) at the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) will review all significant rules. OIRA has determined 
that this rule is not significant.
    E.O. 13563 reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 while calling for 
improvements in the Nation's regulatory system to promote 
predictability, to reduce uncertainty, and to use the best, most 
innovative, and least burdensome tools for achieving regulatory ends. 
The E.O. directs agencies to consider regulatory approaches that reduce 
burdens and maintain flexibility and freedom of choice for the public 
where these approaches are relevant, feasible, and consistent with 
regulatory objectives. E.O. 13563 emphasizes further that regulations 
must be based on the best available science and that the rulemaking 
process must allow for public participation and an open exchange of 
ideas. We have developed this rule in a manner consistent with these 
requirements.

B. Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs (E.O. 13771)

    This action is not an E.O. 13771 regulatory action because this 
rule is not significant under Executive Order 12866.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Department of the Interior certifies that this document will 
not have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small 
entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). 
It does not change current funding requirements and would not impose 
any economic effects on small governmental entities.

D. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act, because this rule does 
nothing more than update a Federal agency address. This rule:
    (a) Will not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million 
or more.
    (b) Will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for 
consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government 
agencies, or geographic regions.
    (c) Will not have significant adverse effects on competition, 
employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of the 
U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises.

E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    This rule does not impose an unfunded mandate on State, local, or 
Tribal governments or the private sector of more than $100 million per 
year. The rule does not have a significant or unique effect on State, 
local, or Tribal governments or the private sector. A statement 
containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act 
(2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) is not required.

F. Takings (E.O. 12630)

    This rule does not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under E.O. 12630. A takings implication 
assessment is not required.

G. Federalism (E.O. 13132)

    Under the criteria in section 1 of E.O. 13132, this rule does not 
have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a 
federalism summary impact statement. A federalism summary impact 
statement is not required.

H. Civil Justice Reform (E.O. 12988)

    This rule complies with the requirements of E.O. 12988. 
Specifically, this rule: (a) Meets the criteria of section 3(a) 
requiring that all regulations be reviewed to eliminate errors and 
ambiguity and be written to minimize litigation; and (b) meets the 
criteria of section 3(b)(2) requiring that all regulations be written 
in clear language and contain clear legal standards.

I. Consultation With Indian Tribes (E.O. 13175)

    The Department of the Interior strives to strengthen its 
government-to-government relationship with Indian Tribes through a 
commitment to consultation with Indian Tribes and recognition of their 
right to self-governance and Tribal sovereignty. We have evaluated this 
rule under the Department's consultation policy and under the criteria 
in E.O. 13175 and have determined there are no substantial direct 
effects on federally recognized Indian Tribes that will result from 
this rulemaking because the rule is limited to updating an address.

J. Paperwork Reduction Act

    OMB Control No. 1076-0172 currently authorizes the collections of 
information related to approval of Tribal-State Class III gaming 
compacts, with an expiration of May 31, 2021. This rulemaking does not 
affect the currently authorized collection. The Department may not 
conduct or sponsor, and you are not required to respond to, any 
collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB 
control number.

K. National Environmental Policy Act

    This rule does not constitute a major Federal action significantly 
affecting the quality of the human environment. A detailed statement 
under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not 
required because this is an administrative and procedural regulation. 
(For further information see 43 CFR 46.210(i)). We have also determined 
that the rule does not involve any of the extraordinary circumstances 
listed in 43 CFR 46.215 that would require further analysis under NEPA.

[[Page 37748]]

L. Effects on the Energy Supply (E.O. 13211)

    This rule is not a significant energy action under the definition 
in E.O. 13211. A Statement of Energy Effects is not required.

M. Determination To Issue Final Rule Without the Opportunity for Public 
Comment and With Immediate Effective Date

    BIA is taking this action under its authority, at 5 U.S.C. 552, to 
publish regulations in the Federal Register. Under the Administrative 
Procedure Act, statutory procedures for agency rulemaking do not apply 
``when the agency for good cause finds . . . that notice and public 
procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the 
public interest.'' 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). BIA finds that the notice and 
comment procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the 
public interest, because: (1) These amendments are non-substantive; and 
(2) the public benefits for timely notification of a change in the 
official agency address, and further delay is unnecessary and contrary 
to the public interest. Similarly because this final rule makes no 
substantive changes and merely reflects a change of address and updates 
to titles in the existing regulations, this final rule is not subject 
to the effective date limitation of 5 U.S.C. 553(d).
