The current regulation states that the Board will follow the priority order provided for employee annuities unpaid at death in the Board’s regulations. This amendment is necessary to insert a correct reference to the proper section of the Board’s regulations pertaining to employee annuities due but unpaid at death.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Information The Railroad Retirement Act (RRA) provides monthly annuities for railroad employees based on age and years of service in the railroad industry. Section 14(b)(2) of the RRA [45 U.S.C. 231m(b)(2)] provides that portions of an employee annuity calculated under sections 2(b), 3(b), 3(f), and 3(h) of the RRA [45 U.S.C. 231a(b), 231b(b), 231b(f), and 231b(h)] may be characterized as community property and subject to distribution in accordance with a court decree of divorce, annulment, or legal separation or the terms of any court-approved property settlement incident to any such court decree. The current version of Board regulations at 20 CFR 295.1 through 295.7 implement this provision. The current version of section 295.5(d) of the Board’s regulations explains that payments to a spouse or former spouse pursuant to a court order will not be made to the heirs, legatees, creditors, or assignees of a deceased spouse or former spouse. Any annuity amounts due to the spouse or former spouse but unpaid at the time of the spouse or former spouse’s death will be made in accordance with the Board’s regulations governing payments of employee annuities due but unpaid at the death of the employee. At the time § 295.5(d) was published in the Federal Register, the Board’s regulations PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death were found in § 234.1 of the Board’s regulations. Part 234 of the Board’s regulations has since been amended and the section governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death is now designated as § 234.31 of the Board’s regulations. Final Rule We are amending § 295.5(d) of the Board’s regulations to provide the correct cross-reference to the section of the Board’s regulations governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death. This change is not intended to be substantive. This change was published as a proposed rule on December 9, 2016, and comments were invited to be submitted by February 7, 2017. See 81 FR 89014 (December 9, 2016). No comments were submitted, and the final rule is the same as the proposed rule. Because this final rule is not a substantive change, but is merely a correction of a citation, it becomes effective on the date this notice of rulemaking is published in the Federal Register. Regulatory Procedures Executive Order 12866, as Amended The Office of Management and Budget has determined that this is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. Therefore, no regulatory impact analysis is required. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Board certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it affects individuals only. Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as amended. Paperwork Reduction Act This final rule imposes no reporting or recordkeeping requirements subject to OMB clearance. List of Subjects in 20 CFR Part 295 Railroad retirement.

Background Public Law 112–74, as amended by Public Law 113–235 and Public Law 114–113, authorizes the Director of BIE, or the Director’s designee, to enter into agreements with public and private persons and entities allowing them to lease the land or facilities of a Bureauoperated school in exchange for consideration (in the form of funds) that benefits the school. The head of the school determines the manner in which the consideration will be used to benefit the school, as long as the use is for school purposes otherwise authorized by law. Congress provided that any funds obtained under this authority will not affect or diminish appropriations for the operation and maintenance of Bureau-operated schools, and that no funds will be withheld from distribution to the budget of a school due to receipt of such funds. This public law also allows personnel of Bureau-operated schools to participate in fundraising activity for the benefit of a Bureau-operated school in their official capacity, as part of their official duties. To carry out these public law provisions, the Act requires the Secretary of the Interior to promulgate regulations. The Act provides that the regulations must include standards for the appropriate use of Bureau-operated school lands and facilities by third parties under a rental or lease agreement; provisions for the establishment and administration of mechanisms for the acceptance of consideration for the use and benefit of a school; accountability standards to ensure ethical conduct; and provisions for monitoring the amount and terms of E:\FR\FM\01JYR1.SGM 01JYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background Information

    The Railroad Retirement Act (RRA) provides monthly annuities for 
railroad employees based on age and years of service in the railroad 
industry. Section 14(b)(2) of the RRA [45 U.S.C. 231m(b)(2)] provides 
that portions of an employee annuity calculated under sections 2(b), 
3(b), 3(f), and 3(h) of the RRA [45 U.S.C. 231a(b), 231b(b), 231b(f), 
and 231b(h)] may be characterized as community property and subject to 
distribution in accordance with a court decree of divorce, annulment, 
or legal separation or the terms of any court-approved property 
settlement incident to any such court decree. The current version of 
Board regulations at 20 CFR 295.1 through 295.7 implement this 
provision.
    The current version of section 295.5(d) of the Board's regulations 
explains that payments to a spouse or former spouse pursuant to a court 
order will not be made to the heirs, legatees, creditors, or assignees 
of a deceased spouse or former spouse. Any annuity amounts due to the 
spouse or former spouse but unpaid at the time of the spouse or former 
spouse's death will be made in accordance with the Board's regulations 
governing payments of employee annuities due but unpaid at the death of 
the employee. At the time Sec.  295.5(d) was published in the Federal 
Register, the Board's regulations governing employee annuities due but 
unpaid at death were found in Sec.  234.1 of the Board's regulations. 
Part 234 of the Board's regulations has since been amended and the 
section governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death is now 
designated as Sec.  234.31 of the Board's regulations.

Final Rule

    We are amending Sec.  295.5(d) of the Board's regulations to 
provide the correct cross-reference to the section of the Board's 
regulations governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death. This 
change is not intended to be substantive.
    This change was published as a proposed rule on December 9, 2016, 
and comments were invited to be submitted by February 7, 2017. See 81 
FR 89014 (December 9, 2016). No comments were submitted, and the final 
rule is the same as the proposed rule. Because this final rule is not a 
substantive change, but is merely a correction of a citation, it 
becomes effective on the date this notice of rulemaking is published in 
the Federal Register.

Regulatory Procedures

Executive Order 12866, as Amended

    The Office of Management and Budget has determined that this is not 
a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. Therefore, 
no regulatory impact analysis is required.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Board certifies that this final rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because it affects individuals only. Therefore, a regulatory 
flexibility analysis is not required under the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, as amended.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This final rule imposes no reporting or recordkeeping requirements 
subject to OMB clearance.
