SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 7653 I. Background On November 2, 2015, the President signed into law the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (Sec. 701 of Pub. L. 114–74) (‘‘the Act’’). The Act requires Federal agencies to adjust the level of civil monetary penalties annually for inflation no later than January 15 of each year. II. Calculation of Annual Adjustments The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) recently issued guidance to assist Federal agencies in implementing the annual adjustments required by the Act which agencies must complete by January 15, 2021. See December 23, 2020, Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies, from Russel T. Vought, Director, Office of Management and Budget, re: Implementation of Penalty Inflation Adjustments for 2021, Pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (M–21–10). The guidance states that the cost-of-living adjustment multiplier for 2021, based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI–U) for the month of October 2020, not seasonally adjusted, is 1.01182. (The annual inflation adjustments are based on the percent change between the October CPI–U preceding the date of the adjustment, and the prior year’s October CPI–U.) The guidance instructs agencies to complete the 2021 annual adjustment by multiplying each applicable penalty by the multiplier, 1.01182, and rounding to the nearest dollar. The annual adjustment applies to all civil monetary penalties with a dollar amount that are subject to the Act. A civil monetary penalty is any assessment with a dollar amount that is levied for a violation of a Federal civil statute or regulation, and is assessed or enforceable through a civil action in Federal court or an administrative proceeding. A civil monetary penalty does not include a penalty levied for violation of a criminal statute, or fees for services, licenses, permits, or other regulatory review. This final rule adjusts the following civil monetary penalties contained in the Department regulations implementing the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) for 2021 by multiplying 1.01182 by each penalty amount as updated by the adjustment made in 2020: E:\FR\FM\01FER1.SGM 01FER1
