SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Direct Final Rule and Significant Adverse Comments NASA has determined this rulemaking meets the criteria for a direct final rule because it makes nonsubstantive changes to add the NASA Graphics Standards Manual and makes other administrative updates. No opposition to the changes and no significant adverse comments are expected. However, if NASA receives significant adverse comments, it will withdraw this direct final rule by publishing a notice in the Federal Register. A significant adverse comment is one that explains: (1) Why the direct final rule is inappropriate, including challenges to the rule’s underlying premise or approach; or (2) why the direct final rule will be ineffective or unacceptable without a change. In determining whether a comment necessitates withdrawal of this direct final rule, NASA will consider whether it warrants a substantive response in a notice and comment process. Background 14 CFR Part 1221 SUMMARY: www.regulations.gov. Follow the online instructions for submitting comments. Please note that NASA will post all comments on the internet with changes, including any personal information provided. Subpart 1 of part 1221, last amended November 5, 1993 [58 FR 58944], sets forth the policy governing the use of the NASA Seal, the NASA Insignia, NASA Logotype, NASA Program Identifiers, and the NASA Flags. This subpart also establishes and sets forth the concept and scope of the NASA Unified Visual Communications System and prescribes the policy and guidelines for implementation of the system. It is amended to add the NASA Graphics Standards Manual and make other administrative updates. Statutory Authority The National Aeronautics and Space Act (the Space Act), 51 U.S.C. 20113 (a), authorizes the Administrator of NASA to make, promulgate, issue, rescind, and amend rules and regulations governing the manner of its operations and the exercise of the powers vested in it by law.

E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has been designated as ‘‘not significant’’ under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires an agency to prepare an initial regulatory flexibility analysis to be published at the time the proposed rule is published. This requirement does not apply if the agency ‘‘certifies that the rule will not, if promulgated, have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities’’ (5 U.S.C. 603). This rule adds the NASA Graphics Standards Manual and make other administrative updates Subpart 1 of part 1221 and, therefore, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act This direct final rule does not contain any information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Review Under E.O. 13132 E.O. 13132, ‘‘Federalism,’’ 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 1999) requires regulations be reviewed for Federalism effects on the institutional interest of states and local governments, and if the effects are sufficiently substantial, preparation of the Federal assessment is required to assist senior policy makers. The amendments will not have any substantial direct effects on state and local governments within the meaning of the E.O. Therefore, no Federalism assessment is required.

Background In accordance with section 620(e)(3) of the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974, (42 U.S.C. 5401–5426) (the Act), as amended, HUD regulations provide for minimum payments to the states participating in the Manufactured Housing Program as an SAA. Since August 13, 2002, HUD regulations at 24 CFR 3284.10 provide that each SAA would receive an amount not less than the amount paid to that SAA for the 12 months ending on December 26, 2000, if that state had a fully approved state plan on December 27, 2000. As HUD explained in a proposed rule published on March 1, 2004 (69 FR 9740), the fact that § 3284.10 only applied to states that had a fully approved state plan as of December 27, 2000, resulted in inequitable payments between states and resulted in some states receiving more funding than other states for each E:\FR\FM\12NOR1.SGM 12NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Direct Final Rule and Significant Adverse Comments

    NASA has determined this rulemaking meets the criteria for a direct 
final rule because it makes nonsubstantive changes to add the NASA 
Graphics Standards Manual and makes other administrative updates. No 
opposition to the changes and no significant adverse comments are 
expected. However, if NASA receives significant adverse comments, it 
will withdraw this direct final rule by publishing a notice in the 
Federal Register. A significant adverse comment is one that explains: 
(1) Why the direct final rule is inappropriate, including challenges to 
the rule's underlying premise or approach; or (2) why the direct final 
rule will be ineffective or unacceptable without a change. In 
determining whether a comment necessitates withdrawal of this direct 
final rule, NASA will consider whether it warrants a substantive 
response in a notice and comment process.

Background

    Subpart 1 of part 1221, last amended November 5, 1993 [58 FR 
58944], sets forth the policy governing the use of the NASA Seal, the 
NASA Insignia, NASA Logotype, NASA Program Identifiers, and the NASA 
Flags. This subpart also establishes and sets forth the concept and 
scope of the NASA Unified Visual Communications System and prescribes 
the policy and guidelines for implementation of the system. It is 
amended to add the NASA Graphics Standards Manual and make other 
administrative updates.

Statutory Authority

    The National Aeronautics and Space Act (the Space Act), 51 U.S.C. 
20113 (a), authorizes the Administrator of NASA to make, promulgate, 
issue, rescind, and amend rules and regulations governing the manner of 
its operations and the exercise of the powers vested in it by law.

Regulatory Analysis

Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive 
Order 13563, Improvement Regulation and Regulation Review

    Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct 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). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This rule has been designated as ``not significant'' under section 3(f) 
of E.O. 12866.

Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires an 
agency to prepare an initial regulatory flexibility analysis to be 
published at the time the proposed rule is published. This requirement 
does not apply if the agency ``certifies that the rule will not, if 
promulgated, have a significant economic impact on a substantial number 
of small entities'' (5 U.S.C. 603). This rule adds the NASA Graphics 
Standards Manual and make other administrative updates Subpart 1 of 
part 1221 and, therefore, does not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities.

Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act

    This direct final rule does not contain any information collection 
requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.).

Review Under E.O. 13132

    E.O. 13132, ``Federalism,'' 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 1999) requires 
regulations be reviewed for Federalism effects on the institutional 
interest of states and local governments, and if the effects are 
sufficiently substantial, preparation of the Federal assessment is 
required to assist senior policy makers. The amendments will not have 
any substantial direct effects on state and local governments within 
the meaning of the E.O. Therefore, no Federalism assessment is 
required.

[[Page 71828]]

Executive Order 13771--Reducing Regulations and Controlling Regulatory 
Costs

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

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 
$100,000,000 or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments.

    (a) The NASA Administrator directed the establishment of a NASA 
Unified Visual Communications System. The system, which is comprised of 
the NASA Graphics Standards Manual and any accompanying style guides or 
related NASA directive or specification, was developed under the 
Federal Design Improvement Program initiated by the President in May 
1972. This system is the Agency-wide program by which NASA projects a 
contemporary, business-like, progressive, and forward-looking image 
through the use of effective design for improved communications. The 
system provides a professional and cohesive NASA identity by imparting 
continuity of graphics design in all layout, reproduction art, 
stationery, forms, publications, signs, films, video productions, 
vehicles, aircraft, and spacecraft markings and other items. It creates 
a unified image which is representative and symbolic of NASA's 
progressive attitudes and programs.
    (b) The Associate Administrator for Communications is responsible 
for the development and implementation of the NASA Graphics Standards 
Manual and any accompanying style guides for the Agency or related NASA 
directive or specification.
