E.O. 13771 deregulatory actions are final actions that have totals costs less than zero. Also, under E.O. 13771, regulatory actions that expand production options, which are considered to be ‘‘enabling rules,’’ generally qualify as E.O. 13771 deregulatory actions. This interim final rule decontrols hemp, hemp extracts and FDA-approved products containing CBD, and it results in cost savings to the public, as discussed above. Accordingly, DEA has determined that this interim final rule is an E.O. 13771 Deregulatory Action. Executive Order 12988 This interim final rule meets the applicable standards set forth in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of E.O. 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to eliminate ambiguity, minimize litigation, establish clear legal standards, and reduce burdens. Executive Order 13132 This rulemaking does not preempt or modify any provision of State law, impose enforcement responsibilities on any State, or diminish the power of any State to enforce its own laws. Accordingly, this rulemaking does not have federalism implications warranting the application of E.O. 13132. Executive Order 13175 This interim final rule is required by statute, and will not have tribal implications or impose substantial direct compliance costs on Indian tribal governments. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) applies to rules that are subject to notice and comment under section 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). As explained in the interim final rule, DEA determined that there was good cause to exempt this interim final rule from pre-publication notice and comment. Consequently, the RFA does not apply to this interim final rule. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This interim final rule does not involve a collection of information within the meaning of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501– 21. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This interim final rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:00 Aug 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 by the private sector, of $136,000,000 or more (adjusted for inflation) in any one year, and 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. 1532. Congressional Review Act This interim final rule is not a major rule as defined by the Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 804). DEA is submitting the required reports with a copy of this interim final rule to both Houses of Congress and to the Comptroller General.

This removal is being conducted to provide clarity and reduce confusion for the public as well as for the Corps regarding the current policy which governs the Corps’ use of non-tactical vehicles.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because of the hazards associated with the Boat in Movie night, and the need to address public safety via the implementation of a special local regulation. It is impracticable to publish an NPRM because we must establish this special local regulation by August 22, 2020. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This final rule removes the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' part 
titled Surface Transportation--Administrative Vehicle Management. This 
part is out-of-date and otherwise covers internal agency operations 
that have no public compliance component or adverse public impact. 
Therefore, this part can be removed from the CFR.

DATES: This rule is effective on August 21, 2020.

ADDRESSES: Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, ATTN: 
CECW-P (Ms. Patricia Mutschler), 441 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20314-
1000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Patricia Mutschler at 202-761-4744 
or by email at [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This final rule removes the U.S. Army Corps 
of Engineers' 32 CFR part 625, Surface Transportation--Administrative 
Vehicle Management. The solicitation of public comment is unnecessary 
as each removed section in this part is out-of-date and otherwise 
covers internal agency operations that have no public compliance 
component or adverse public impact. The regulation was initially 
promulgated on November 2, 1979 (44 FR 63099) to provide guidance and 
authorize dependents to accompany a Corps employee on Temporary Duty 
(TDY) in a Government-owned or leased motor vehicle. The regulation was 
promulgated for transparency purposes despite the content being 
directed solely to the issuing agency with no impact to the public.
    The removal of 32 CFR part 625 will bring the U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers into compliance with DoD Manual 4500.36, ``Acquisition, 
Management, and Use of DoD Non-Tactical Vehicles'' (available at 
https://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/dodm/450036m.pdf?ver=2018-12-20-085741-153); and Army Regulation 58-1, 
``Management, Acquisition, and Use of Motor Vehicles'' (available at 
https://api.army.mil/e2/c/downloads/455098.pdf), which do not allow for 
the transportation of dependents in non-tactical vehicles provided for 
DoD personnel when on Temporary Duty (TDY).
    This removal is being conducted to provide clarity and reduce 
confusion for the public as well as for the Corps regarding the current 
policy which governs the Corps' use of non-tactical vehicles. The 
removal of the regulation will ensure the Corps' policy complies with 
existing DoD and Army internal agency guidance which has no future 
effect on the behavior of regulated parties and which can be found at 
the sources provided in this SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section. In an 
effort to reduce the number of regulations the Corps has promulgated, 
the removal of an out-of-date regulation which is also out of 
compliance with current agency policy is appropriate. The regulation 
does not place a burden on the public; therefore, its removal does not 
provide a reduction in public burden or costs.
    This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, 
``Regulatory Planning and Review.'' Therefore, the requirements of E.O. 
13771, ``Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs,'' do not 
apply.
    This removal supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform 
Task Force.

    Accordingly, for the reasons stated in the preamble and under the 
authority of 5 U.S.C. 301, the Corps of Engineers removes 32 CFR part 
625.
