By statute under 5 U.S.C. 8461(i), the revisions to the actuarial assumptions require corresponding changes in factors used to produce actuarially equivalent benefits when required by the FERS Act. As a result, on July 2, 2020, at 85 FR 39852, OPM published a proposed rule in the Federal Register to revise the table of reduction factors in Appendix A to subpart C of part 843, Code of Federal Regulations, for early commencing dates of survivor annuities for spouses of separated employees who die before the date on which they would be eligible for unreduced deferred annuities, and to revise the annuity factor for spouses of deceased employees who die in service when those spouses elect to receive the basic employee death benefit in 36 installments under 5 CFR 843.309. OPM received no written comments on the proposed rule. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Impact Analysis OPM has examined the impact of this rule as required by Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563, which directs agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public, health, and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). A regulatory impact analysis must be prepared for major rules with economically significant effects of $100 million or more in any one year.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Secretary of Agriculture is issuing this rule to provide additional assistance under the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) to agricultural producers who continue to be impacted by the effects of the COVID–19 outbreak. This rule specifies the eligibility requirements, payment calculations, and application procedures for a second round of payments (CFAP 2). In addition, it also extends the special payment limitation provisions to trusts and estates for CFAP 1 and amends the provisions regarding applicable year and direct attribution of payments to members of legal entities that qualify for the increased payment limitation.

Persons with disabilities who require alternative means for communication should contact the USDA Target Center at (202) 720–2600 (voice). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In response to the COVID–19 outbreak, USDA implemented CFAP through a final rule published in the Federal Register on May 21, 2020 (85 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:32 Sep 21, 2020 Jkt 250001 FR 30825–30835), with corrections published in the Federal Register on June 12, 2020 (85 FR 35799–35800), July 10, 2020 (85 FR 41328–41330), August 14, 2020 (85 FR 49593–49594), and documents published in the Federal Register on May 22, 2020 (85 FR 31062– 31065), June 12, 2020 (85 FR 35812), July 10, 2020 (85 FR 41321–41323), and August 14, 2020 (85 FR 49589–49593). The application period for the first round of CFAP payments (referred to in this rule and hereinafter as CFAP 1) was May 26, 2020, through September 11, 2020. In this final rule, USDA is implementing a second round of payments under CFAP (CFAP 2) for producers of agricultural commodities who face continuing market disruptions, low farm-level prices, and significant marketing costs. These additional significant marketing costs are associated with declines in demand, surplus production, and disruptions to shipping patterns and the orderly marketing of commodities. CFAP 2 will provide eligible producers with financial assistance that gives them the ability to absorb increased marketing costs associated with the COVID–19 outbreak. In accordance with 15 U.S.C. 714b, the Secretary is using funds of the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) to assist producers with the purchase of materials and facilities required in connection with the production and marketing of agricultural commodities, with an estimated $13.21 billion being made available. These funds will be used as authorized by sections 5(b), (d), and (e) of the CCC Charter Act (15 U.S.C. 714c(b), (d), and (e)). These authorities will be used to partially compensate producers for on-going market disruptions and assist with the transition to a more orderly marketing system by enabling them to: • Purchase materials and facilities required in connection with the PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 .4881 .5194 .5531 .5894 .6283 .6704 .7154 .7638 .8162 .8725 .9338 From 1950 through 1966 .5228 .5563 .5924 .6314 .6730 .7180 .7662 .8181 .8741 .9345 1.0000 production and marketing of agricultural commodities; • Remove or dispose of surplus agricultural commodities; and • Develop new and additional markets, marketing facilities, and uses for the commodities. Funds available under 15 U.S.C. 714c(b), (d), and (e) cannot be used to provide assistance for tobacco; however, tobacco will be eligible for CFAP 2 with payments funded by remaining funds authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act; Pub. L. 116–136). Payments CFAP 2 payments will be made for three categories of commodities: 1. Price trigger commodities (major commodities that meet a minimum 5percent price decline over a specified time period); 2. Flat-rate crops; and 3. Sales commodities. Eligible price trigger commodities include barley, corn, sorghum, soybeans, sunflowers, upland cotton, wheat (all classes), broilers, eggs, beef cattle, dairy, hogs and pigs, and lambs and sheep. Price trigger commodities are commodities that had a 5 percent or greater price decline due to COVID–19 in a comparison of the average price for the week of January 13–17, 2020, and the average price for the week of July 27–31, 2020. For price trigger crops, payments will be based on eligible acres of the crop, which are the producer’s share of 2020 determined acres if established by FSA, or reported acres on FSA–578 if determined acres have not been established by FSA, excluding prevented planting and experimental acres. Payments for price trigger crops will be the greater of: (1) The eligible acres multiplied by a payment rate of $15 per acre; or (2) the eligible acres multiplied by a nationwide crop marketing percentage, multiplied by a crop-specific payment rate, and then by E:\FR\FM\22SER1.SGM 22SER1

RIN 3206-AO03


Federal Employees' Retirement System; Present Value Conversion 
Factors for Spouses of Deceased Separated Employees

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is adopting its 
proposed rule to revise the table of reduction factors for early 
commencing dates of survivor annuities for spouses of separated 
employees who die before the date on which they would be eligible for 
unreduced deferred annuities, and to revise the annuity factor for 
spouses of deceased employees who die in service when those spouses 
elect to receive the basic employee death benefit in 36 installments 
under the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS) Act of 1986. 
These rules are necessary to ensure that the tables conform to the 
economic and demographic assumptions adopted by the Board of Actuaries 
and published in the Federal Register on April 6, 2020, as required by 
the United States Code.

DATES: This rule becomes effective on October 1, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karla Yeakle, (202) 606-0299.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 6, 2020, OPM published at 85 FR 
19174, a notice in the Federal Register to revise the normal cost 
percentages under the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS) Act 
of 1986, Public Law 99-335, 100 Stat. 514, as amended, based on 
economic assumptions and demographic factors adopted by the Board of 
Actuaries of the Civil Service Retirement System. By statute under 5 
U.S.C. 8461(i), the revisions to the actuarial assumptions require 
corresponding changes in factors used to produce actuarially equivalent 
benefits when required by the FERS Act. As a result, on July 2, 2020, 
at 85 FR 39852, OPM published a proposed rule in the Federal Register 
to revise the table of reduction factors in Appendix A to subpart C of 
part 843, Code of Federal Regulations, for early commencing dates of 
survivor annuities for spouses of separated employees who die before 
the date on which they would be eligible for unreduced deferred 
annuities, and to revise the annuity factor for spouses of deceased 
employees who die in service when those spouses elect to receive the 
basic employee death benefit in 36 installments under 5 CFR 843.309. 
OPM received no written comments on the proposed rule.

Regulatory Impact Analysis

    OPM has examined the impact of this rule as required by Executive 
Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563, which directs agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public, 
health, and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). A 
regulatory impact analysis must be prepared for major rules with 
economically significant effects of $100 million or more in any one 
year. This rule was not designated as a ``significant regulatory 
action,'' under Executive Order 12866.

[[Page 59379]]

Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs

    This rule is not an E.O. 13771 regulatory action because this rule 
is related to agency organization, management, or personnel.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Office of Personnel Management certifies that this rule will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

Federalism

    We have examined this rule in accordance with Executive Order 
13132, Federalism, and have determined that this rule will not have any 
negative impact on the rights, roles and responsibilities of State, 
local, or tribal governments.

Civil Justice Reform

    This regulation meets the applicable standard set forth in 
Executive Order 12988.

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 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.

Congressional Review Act

    This action pertains to agency management, personnel, and 
organization and does not substantially affect the rights or 
obligations of nonagency parties and, accordingly, is not a ``rule'' as 
that term is used by the Congressional Review Act (Subtitle E of the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA)). 
Therefore, the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801 does not apply.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required 
to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure 
to comply with a collection of information subject to the requirements 
of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), 
unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number.
    This rule involves an OMB approved collection of information 
subject to the PRA Application for Death Benefits (FERS)/Documentation 
and Elections in Support of Application for Death Benefits when 
Deceased was an Employee at the Time of Death (FERS), 3206-0172. The 
public reporting burden for this collection is estimated to average 60 
minutes per response, including time for reviewing instructions, 
searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data 
needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. The 
total burden hour estimate for this form is 16,751 hours. The systems 
of record notice for this collection is: OPM SORN CENTRAL-1-Civil 
Service Retirement and Insurance Records.
