This rule changes the postal and street address for the personal filing of documents relating to public lands in the Eastern States but makes no other changes in filing requirements. The BLM has determined that the rule has no substantive impact on the public, imposes no costs, and merely updates a list of addresses included in the Code of Federal Regulations for the convenience of the public.

Background PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 National Environmental Policy Act The BLM has found that the final rule is of a procedural nature and thus is categorically excluded from environmental review under section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C), pursuant to 43 CFR 46.210(i). In addition, the final rule does not present any of the 12 extraordinary circumstances listed at 43 CFR 46.215. Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 CFR 1508.4) and the environmental regulations, policies, and procedures of the Department of the Interior, the term ‘‘categorical exclusions’’ means a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment, have been found to have no such effect in procedures adopted by a Federal agency, and for which neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act This final rule is a purely administrative regulatory action having no effects upon the public or the economy. This is not a major rule under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (5 U.S.C. 804(2)). The rule will not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more. The rule will not cause a major increase in costs of prices for consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government agencies, or geographic regions. The rule will not have significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of United States-based enterprises to complete with foreignbased enterprises. Unfunded Mandate Reform Act The BLM has determined that this final rule is not significant under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 because the 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 one year. Further, the administrative final rule will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. It does not require action by any non-Federal government entity. Therefore, the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), is not required. Executive Order 12630, Government Action and Interference With Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (Takings) As required by Executive Order 12630, the Department of the Interior has determined that the rule would not cause a taking of private property. No private property rights would be affected by a rule that merely reports an address change for the Eastern States Office. The Department therefore certifies that this final rule does not represent a governmental action capable of interference with constitutionally protected property rights. Executive Order 13132, Federalism In accordance with Executive Order 13132, the BLM finds that the rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:21 Dec 14, 2020 Jkt 253001 of a federalism summary impact statement. The final rule does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national governments and the States, or the distribution of power and the responsibilities among the various levels of government. This administrative final rule does not preempt State law. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform This final rule is a purely administrative regulatory action having no effects upon the public and will not unduly burden the judicial system. This final rule meets the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Executive Order. Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In accordance with the Executive Order 13175, the BLM finds that the rule does not include policies that have tribal implications.

Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use In accordance with Executive Order 13211, the BLM has determined that the final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the energy supply, distribution or use, including a shortfall in supply or price increase. This final rule is a purely administrative action and has no implications under Executive Order 13211.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background
II. Procedural Matters

I. Background

    This final rule reflects the administrative action of changing the 
street address of the Eastern States Office of the BLM. This rule 
changes the postal and street address for the personal filing of 
documents relating to public lands in the Eastern States but makes no 
other changes in filing requirements. The BLM has determined that the 
rule has no substantive impact on the public, imposes no costs, and 
merely updates a list of addresses included in the Code of Federal 
Regulations for the convenience of the public. The Department of the 
Interior, therefore, for good cause finds that under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B), notice and public comment procedures are unnecessary.

II. Procedural Matters

Regulatory Planning and Review (Executive Order 12866)

    This final rule is an administrative action to change the address 
for one BLM State Office. This rule was not subject to review by the 
Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866. The rule 
imposes no costs, and merely updates a list of addresses included in 
the Code of Federal Regulations for the convenience of the public.

National Environmental Policy Act

    The BLM has found that the final rule is of a procedural nature and 
thus is categorically excluded from environmental review under section 
102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 
U.S.C. 4332(2)(C), pursuant to 43 CFR 46.210(i). In addition, the final 
rule does not present any of the 12 extraordinary circumstances listed 
at 43 CFR 46.215. Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality 
regulations (40 CFR 1508.4) and the environmental regulations, 
policies, and procedures of the Department of the Interior, the term 
``categorical exclusions'' means a category of actions which do not 
individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment, have been found to have no such effect in procedures 
adopted by a Federal agency, and for which neither an environmental 
assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Congress enacted the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 
601, et seq.) to ensure that Government regulations do not 
unnecessarily or

[[Page 81142]]

disproportionately burden small entities. This final rule is a purely 
administrative regulatory action having no effect upon the public or 
the environment and it has been determined that the rule will not have 
a significant effect on the economy or small entities.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This final rule is a purely administrative regulatory action having 
no effects upon the public or the economy. This is not a major rule 
under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (5 U.S.C. 
804(2)). The rule will not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 
million or more. The rule will not cause a major increase in costs of 
prices for consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local 
government agencies, or geographic regions. The rule will not have 
significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, 
productivity, innovation, or the ability of United States-based 
enterprises to complete with foreign-based enterprises.

Unfunded Mandate Reform Act

    The BLM has determined that this final rule is not significant 
under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 because the 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 one year. Further, the administrative final rule will not 
significantly or uniquely affect small governments. It does not require 
action by any non-Federal government entity. Therefore, the information 
required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), 
is not required.

Executive Order 12630, Government Action and Interference With 
Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (Takings)

    As required by Executive Order 12630, the Department of the 
Interior has determined that the rule would not cause a taking of 
private property. No private property rights would be affected by a 
rule that merely reports an address change for the Eastern States 
Office. The Department therefore certifies that this final rule does 
not represent a governmental action capable of interference with 
constitutionally protected property rights.

Executive Order 13132, Federalism

    In accordance with Executive Order 13132, the BLM finds that the 
rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the 
preparation of a federalism summary impact statement.
    The final rule does not have substantial direct effects on the 
States, on the relationship between the national governments and the 
States, or the distribution of power and the responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. This administrative final rule does not 
preempt State law.

Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform

    This final rule is a purely administrative regulatory action having 
no effects upon the public and will not unduly burden the judicial 
system. This final rule meets the requirements of sections 3(a) and 
3(b)(2) of the Executive Order.

Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal 
Governments

    In accordance with the Executive Order 13175, the BLM finds that 
the rule does not include policies that have tribal implications. This 
final rule is purely an administrative action having no effects upon 
the public or the environment, imposing no costs, and merely updates 
the Eastern States Office address included in the Code of Federal 
Regulations.

Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That 
Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use

    In accordance with Executive Order 13211, the BLM has determined 
that the final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the 
energy supply, distribution or use, including a shortfall in supply or 
price increase. This final rule is a purely administrative action and 
has no implications under Executive Order 13211.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the rule does 
not contain any information collection requirements that require the 
approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, 
et seq.
