We have reviewed our critical habitat designations published in the Code of Federal Regulations for plants. Based on that review, we have found that we can provide more costefficient, helpful, and streamlined critical habitat designations by removing the often-lengthy textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those designations for which the maps have been determined to be sufficient to stand as the official delineation of critical habitat. This rule does not increase, decrease, or in any other way alter the critical habitat designations from which we are removing the textual descriptions of boundaries. A change to the Code of Federal Regulations can only be completed by issuing a final rule. The basis for our action. Executive Order 13563 directs Federal agencies to review their existing regulations and then to modify or streamline them in accordance with what they learned. This action results from our review of E:\FR\FM\22JYR1.SGM 22JYR1 ER22JY21.022</GPH> * Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 138 / Thursday, July 22, 2021 / Rules and Regulations lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 our critical habitat regulations. This change will save taxpayer resources and make the critical habitat designations published in the Code of Federal Regulations more user-friendly. Background On May 1, 2012, we published a final rule (77 FR 25611) revising our regulations related to publishing textual descriptions of proposed and final critical habitat boundaries in the Federal Register for codification in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). In the interest of making the process of designating critical habitat more userfriendly for affected parties and the public as a whole, as well as more efficient and cost effective, we maintained the publication of maps of proposed and final critical habitat designations but made optional the inclusion of any textual description of the boundaries of the designation in the Federal Register for codification in the CFR. The boundaries of critical habitat as mapped or otherwise described in the Regulation Promulgation section of a rulemaking that is published in the Federal Register is the official delineation of the critical habitat designation. This approach began with critical habitat designations published after the effective date of the final rule (May 31, 2012). Specifically, for critical habitat rules published after May 31, 2012, the map(s), as clarified or refined by any textual language within the rule, establish the legal boundaries of a critical habitat. Each critical habitat area is shown on a map, with more-detailed information discussed in the preamble or the rulemaking documents published in the Federal Register. The map published in the CFR is generated from the coordinates and/or plot points corresponding to the location of the boundaries. These coordinates and/or plot points are included in the administrative record for the designation and are available to the public online and at the Service field office responsible for the designation. In addition, if the Service concludes that additional tools or supporting information are appropriate and would help the public understand the official boundary map, we make the additional tools and supporting information available on our internet site and at the Service field office responsible for the critical habitat designation. The preamble to the May 1, 2012, final rule (77 FR 25611) explained how the Service would handle boundaries for critical habitat that had already been designated before May 31, 2012; the rule states that ‘‘for existing critical habitat VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:56 Jul 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 designations, we also intend to remove the textual descriptions of final critical habitat boundaries set forth in the CFR in order to save the annual reprinting cost, but we must do so in separate rulemakings to ensure that removing the textual descriptions does not change the existing boundaries of those designations’’ (77 FR 25618). We have now begun applying this approach to critical habitat designations promulgated prior to May 31, 2012. This rule is the third, and final, in a series of rules based on our evaluation of the map(s) in each critical habitat designation at 50 CFR 17.95, 17.96, and 17.99 to remove the textual descriptions without changing the existing boundaries of those designations if we determine the map(s) will be sufficient to inform the public of the boundaries of the designations and can therefore stand as the official delineation of the designation. On October 27, 2017, we published a final rule (82 FR 49751) removing textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those designations for plants on the Hawaiian Islands of Kauai, Niihau, and Hawaii at 50 CFR 17.99. That final rule established that the map, as clarified or refined by any textual language within the rule, constitutes the definition of the boundaries of the critical habitat for the applicable designation. It did not alter the locations of any boundaries. On April 27, 2018, we published a final rule (83 FR 18698) removing textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those designations for mammals, birds, amphibians, fishes, clams, snails, arachnids, crustaceans, and insects for which the maps were determined to be sufficient to stand as the official delineation of critical habitat at 50 CFR 17.95. That final rule established that the map, as clarified or refined by any textual language within the rule, constitutes the definition of the boundaries of the critical habitat for the applicable designation. For critical habitat designations at 50 CFR 17.95(a)– (b) and (d)–(i) with maps that did not meet our sufficiency criteria, we added a statement (‘‘The map provided is for informational purposes only.’’) to clarify that the textual descriptions, not the maps, in those entries are the official delineation of critical habitat. The rule did not alter the locations of any boundaries. This revision to 50 CFR 17.96 is the third, and final, rule in a series of rules to remove the textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those designations for which the maps have been determined to be sufficient to PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 38573 stand as the official delineation of critical habitat. This Rule For 50 CFR 17.96, we evaluated the map(s) in each entry to determine whether or not the map(s) can stand as the official delineation of the designation. All of the entries in 50 CFR 17.96 fall within 17.96(a) (critical habitat for flowering plants). In each entry we looked for a combination of certain map elements—including, but not limited to, the name of the species (or of the grouping of species), the unit number and/or name, the names of counties and/or States shown, a clear map key, and an appropriate map scale—to determine whether or not the maps are sufficient to serve as the official delineation of the designation. In this rule, we are removing the textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those entries at 50 CFR 17.96(a) that have maps sufficient to stand as the official delineation of the designation. In those entries, we are removing the word ‘‘Note:’’ (or ‘‘NOTE:’’ or ‘‘Note:’’) if it precedes a map that will now stand as the official delineation of the critical habitat designation. For critical habitat designations at 50 CFR 17.96(a) with maps that do not meet our sufficiency criteria, we are adding a statement (‘‘[The] map provided is for informational purposes only.’’) to clarify that the textual descriptions, not the maps, in those entries are the official delineation of critical habitat. For certain designations, we are retaining the textual descriptions of the boundaries of either the entire designated critical habitat unit or of the areas excluded from the critical habitat designation to clarify or refine the provided map, in accordance with 50 CFR 17.94. We determined that for some designations, providing textual descriptions of the boundaries enhanced the clarity of the designation, so we have opted to retain those textual descriptions. In addition, we found that in some instances retaining the textual description of an excluded area is necessary because the relevant map(s) do not adequately show the excluded area(s), which can be very small within a much larger critical habitat unit. Retaining those textual descriptions ensures that the public has accurate and complete information regarding critical habitat units and areas excluded from critical habitat designation. This rule does not increase, decrease, or in any other way alter the critical habitat designations from which we are removing the textual descriptions of boundaries. This administrative action will save taxpayer resources. The E:\FR\FM\22JYR1.SGM 22JYR1 lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 38574 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 138 / Thursday, July 22, 2021 / Rules and Regulations Service spent approximately $75,500 to reprint the critical habitat designations at 50 CFR 17.96 for the most-recent print edition of the CFR. Based on a review of the print edition of the CFR, we estimate that this rule will remove approximately 179 pages of the relevant CFR volume, amounting to a savings of approximately $14,320 per year in printing costs for the Service. Over many years, eliminating the need to reprint Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate pairs and other textual descriptions at 50 CFR 17.96 will result in a considerable cumulative cost savings for the Service and the public as a whole. The detailed UTM coordinates or other textual descriptions we are removing in this rule will continue to be available online at the Federal eRulemaking Portal (see ADDRESSES) and at the lead Service field office responsible for the designation to assist the public in understanding the official boundary. We note that the Service never maintained that requiring detailed textual descriptions was legally necessary. Instead, the first critical habitat regulations required only that critical habitat designations be ‘‘accompanied by maps and/or geographical descriptions’’ (43 FR 870 876 (Jan. 4, 1978)). Although the Service subsequently added the requirement that critical habitat designations include textual descriptions describing the specific boundary limits of the critical habitat, there is nothing in the preamble to that rule indicating that the Service did so because the Act required it. Rather, it was in response to several commenters, who had opined that the proposed rule was not sufficiently clear in setting out the method by which critical habitat boundaries would be described (45 FR 13009, 13015 (Feb. 27, 1980)). Removing these unnecessary textual descriptions will significantly reduce the length of some critical habitat designations, making each designation easier to locate in the CFR; will not weaken the effectiveness of the Act; and will not undermine the public’s ability to identify the boundaries of critical habitat designations. The information printed in the CFR is the legally binding delineation of critical habitat. If there is ambiguity due to the scale of the map such that additional regulatory text is needed to ensure that the public has adequate notice of the boundaries, we provide additional regulation text. The only change to the CFR that we are making with this action is removing the detailed textual description of the boundaries of the specific areas designated as critical VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:56 Jul 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 habitat (e.g., latitude-longitude and UTM coordinates). We still generate those data and make them available at http://www.regulations.gov and at the lead field office of the Service responsible for the critical habitat designation. Neither the critical habitat designation nor the underlying data on which it is based can be changed without undergoing a further rulemaking. As stated earlier, the actions we are taking in this rule do not increase, decrease, or otherwise alter the critical habitat boundaries or areas. For 50 CFR 17.96(a), we are merely removing the reference points (e.g., UTM or latitudelongitude coordinates) of the textual descriptions from existing final critical habitat designations, and we are doing so only where we have determined that the existing maps are sufficient to inform the public of the boundaries of the designations and can therefore stand as the official delineation of critical habitat. However, we will continue to provide the reference points of the textual descriptions at http:// www.regulations.gov and at the lead field office of the Service responsible for the critical habitat designation. The actions we are taking in this rule require us to also revise 50 CFR 17.94(b), to set forth an explanation of which critical habitat designations have maps that stand as the official delineation of critical habitat and which do not. We are publishing this final rule without a prior proposal because we find that there is good cause for doing so pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). The ‘‘good cause’’ exception applies when an agency finds ‘‘that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Publication of a proposed rule for this action is unnecessary because this is an administrative action that does not increase, decrease, or otherwise change critical habitat boundaries or areas. Therefore, this action will not affect any legal rights. Rather, it will merely reduce the publication length of some rules designating critical habitat, which will save taxpayer resources and make each designation easier to locate in the CFR. We find that it is in the best interest of the public to promulgate these administrative and technical changes to 50 CFR 17.96 without undergoing procedures that are unnecessary. PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Required Determinations Regulatory Planning and Review— Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 Executive Order 12866 provides that the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) will review all significant rules. OIRA has determined that this rule is not significant. Executive Order 13563 reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 while calling for improvements in the nation’s regulatory system to promote predictability, to reduce uncertainty, and to use the best, most innovative, and least burdensome tools for achieving regulatory ends. The executive order directs agencies to consider regulatory approaches that reduce burdens and maintain flexibility and freedom of choice for the public where these approaches are relevant, feasible, and consistent with regulatory objectives. E.O. 13563 emphasizes further that regulations must be based on the best available science and that the rulemaking process must allow for public participation and an open exchange of ideas. We have developed this rule in a manner consistent with these requirements. Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., whenever an agency is required to publish a notice of rulemaking for any proposed or final rule, it must prepare and make available for public comment a regulatory flexibility analysis that describes the effects of the rule on small entities (i.e., small businesses, small organizations, and small government jurisdictions). However, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required if the head of the agency certifies the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The SBREFA amended the RFA to require Federal agencies to provide a statement of the factual basis for certifying that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. According to the Small Business Administration, small entities include small organizations such as independent nonprofit organizations; small governmental jurisdictions, including school boards and city and town governments that serve fewer than 50,000 residents; and small businesses (13 CFR 121.201). Small businesses include such businesses as manufacturing and mining concerns with fewer than 500 employees, E:\FR\FM\22JYR1.SGM 22JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 138 / Thursday, July 22, 2021 / Rules and Regulations lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 wholesale trade entities with fewer than 100 employees, and retail and service businesses with less than $5 million in annual sales. In general, the term ‘‘significant economic impact’’ is meant to apply to a typical small business firm’s business operations. This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities as defined under the RFA. This rule is an administrative action to remove the textual descriptions from critical habitat designations at 50 CFR 17.96(a) that have maps sufficient to stand as the official delineation of critical habitat. This action does not increase, decrease, or in any other way alter the areas or boundaries of the critical habitat designations from which we are removing the textual descriptions of boundaries. This action will save taxpayer resources. The Service spent approximately $75,500 to reprint the critical habitat designations at 50 CFR 17.96 for the most-recent print edition of the CFR. Based on a review of the print edition of the CFR, we estimate that this rule will remove approximately 179 pages of the relevant CFR volume, amounting to a savings of approximately $14,320 per year in printing costs for the Service. While over many years, eliminating the need to reprint Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate pairs and other textual descriptions at 50 CFR 17.96 will result in a considerable cumulative cost savings to the Service and the public as a whole, this rule will result in only a small annual savings to the Service and the public. Therefore, for the reasons above, we certify that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.) In accordance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.), the Services make the following findings: a. This rule will not produce a Federal mandate. In general, a Federal mandate is a provision in legislation, statute, or regulation that would impose an enforceable duty upon State, local, or Tribal governments, or the private sector and includes both ‘‘Federal intergovernmental mandates’’ and ‘‘Federal private sector mandates.’’ These terms are defined in 2 U.S.C. 658(5)–(7). ‘‘Federal intergovernmental mandate’’ includes a regulation that ‘‘would impose an enforceable duty upon State, local, or tribal governments’’ with two exceptions: (1) ‘‘A condition of VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:56 Jul 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 Federal assistance’’ or (2) ‘‘a duty arising from participation in a voluntary Federal program,’’ unless the regulation ‘‘relates to a then-existing Federal program under which $500,000,000 or more is provided annually to State, local, and tribal governments under entitlement authority’’; the provision would either ‘‘increase the stringency of conditions of assistance’’ or ‘‘place caps upon, or otherwise decrease, the Federal Government’s responsibility to provide funding’’; and the State, local, or Tribal governments ‘‘lack authority . . . to amend their financial or programmatic responsibilities to continue providing required services.’’ At the time of enactment, these entitlement programs were: Medicaid; AFDC work programs; Child Nutrition; Food Stamps; Social Services Block Grants; Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants; Foster Care, Adoption Assistance, and Independent Living; Family Support Welfare Services; and Child Support Enforcement. ‘‘Federal private sector mandate’’ includes a regulation that ‘‘would impose an enforceable duty upon the private sector, except (i) a condition of Federal assistance or (ii) a duty arising from participation in a voluntary Federal program.’’ This rule does not produce a Federal mandate under either of these definitions. b. This rule will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments, because the revisions to the regulations in this rule should make our critical habitat designations more user-friendly and will make the process more costeffective for the Service and the public as a whole. As such, we do not believe that a Small Government Agency Plan is required. Takings—Executive Order 12630 In accordance with Executive Order 12630 (‘‘Government Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Private Property Rights’’), we have evaluated this rule, and we have determined that this rule does not pose significant takings implications. The revisions to the regulations set forth in this rule do not involve individual property rights. Federalism—Executive Order 13132 In accordance with Executive Order 13132 (Federalism), the rule does not have significant Federalism effects. A federalism summary impact statement is not required. The revisions to the regulations addressed in this rule are intended to promote the usability of the regulations and make the process of designating critical habitat more costeffective, and thus should not significantly affect or burden the PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 38575 authority of the States to govern themselves. Civil Justice Reform—Executive Order 12988 In accordance with Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform), this rule follows the Civil Justice Reform principles for regulations that do not unduly burden the Federal judicial system, by meeting the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b) of the Executive Order. The revisions to the regulations addressed in this rule should not significantly affect or burden the judicial system. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This rule does not contain any new collections of information that require approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) We analyzed this rule in accordance with the criteria of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), 43 CFR part 46, and 516 Departmental Manual (DM) 2 and 8. A categorical exclusion from NEPA documentation applies to policies, directives, regulations, and guidelines that are ‘‘of an administrative, financial, legal, technical, or procedural nature’’ (43 CFR 46.210(i)). This rule falls within this categorical exclusion because it is administrative and technical in nature— it affects only the format in which the critical habitat boundaries are delineated in the regulations. However, even if an individual Federal action falls within a categorical exclusion, the Service must still prepare environmental documents pursuant to NEPA if one of the 12 exceptions listed in 43 CFR 46.215 applies. We have reviewed each of the 12 exceptions and have found that because this rule is administrative in nature, none of the exceptions apply. Although the exception at 43 CFR 46.215(h) applies to actions that ‘‘have a significant impact’’ on listed species or designated critical habitat, this action will not have any such significant impact, because it is administrative in nature and affects only the format in which critical habitat boundaries are delineated and not the substance of the critical habitat designations. Therefore, this action meets the requirements for a E:\FR\FM\22JYR1.SGM 22JYR1 38576 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 138 / Thursday, July 22, 2021 / Rules and Regulations categorical exclusion from the NEPA process. Government-to-Government Relationship With Tribes In accordance with the President’s memorandum of April 29, 1994, ‘‘Government-to-Government Relations with Native American Tribal Governments’’ (59 FR 22951), Executive Order 13175 ‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments,’’ and the Department of the Interior Manual at 512 DM 2, we readily acknowledge our responsibility to communicate meaningfully with recognized Native American Tribes on a government-to-government basis. We have evaluated the potential effects on federally recognized Tribes from these revisions to our regulations. We have determined that there are no potential effects to federally recognized Tribes, as the revisions to the regulations are intended to promote the usability of critical habitat designations and save taxpayer monies. We will continue to coordinate with Tribes as we promulgate critical habitat designations. Information and Regulatory Affairs as a significant energy action. Therefore, this action is not a significant energy action and no Statement of Energy Effects is required.

Each area will be referenced to the State(s), county(ies), or other local government units within which all or part of the critical habitat is located. General descriptions of the location and boundaries of each area may be provided to clarify or refine what is included within the boundaries depicted on the map, or to explain the exclusion of sites (e.g., paved roads, buildings) within the mapped area. Unless otherwise indicated within the critical habitat descriptions, the names of the State(s) and county(ies) are provided for informational purposes only and do not constitute the boundaries of the area.

NMFS sets new 2021 and projected specifications for fishing year 2022 butterfish and Illex squid, while maintaining the current longfin squid and Atlantic mackerel specifications for 2021 and projected for 2022–2023. This action also adjusts the dealer reporting requirement and adjusts the closure threshold for the Illex squid fishery to avoid overages. This action is required to ensure that specifications for these fisheries is based on the best scientific information available. These specifications are intended to promote the sustainable utilization and conservation of the mackerel, squid, and butterfish resources. Additionally, this action reaffirms previously approved Atlantic chub mackerel specifications for 2021–2022. DATES: Effective July 22, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background The regulations implementing the Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish Fishery Management Plan (FMP) require the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council’s Mackerel, Squid, and Butterfish Monitoring Committee to develop specification recommendations for each species based upon the acceptable biological catch (ABC) advice of the Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC). The FMP regulations also require the specification of annual catch limits (ACL) and accountability measure (AM) provisions for butterfish. Both squid species are exempt from the ACL/AM requirements because they have a life cycle of less than one year. The regulations for squid require the specification of domestic annual harvest (DAH), the butterfish mortality cap in the longfin squid fishery, and initial optimum yield (IOY) for both squid species.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Removing Textual 
Descriptions of Critical Habitat Boundaries for Plants

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

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

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are removing 
the textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those 
designations for plants for which the maps have been determined to be 
sufficient to stand as the official delineation of critical habitat. 
For these entries, the boundaries of critical habitat as mapped or 
otherwise described will be the official delineation of the 
designation. The coordinates and/or plot points that we are removing 
from the Code of Federal Regulations will be available to the public at 
the lead field office of the Service responsible for the designation 
and online at the Federal eRulemaking Portal. This action does not 
increase, decrease, or otherwise change the boundaries of any critical 
habitat designation. We are taking this action in accordance with our 
May 1, 2012, revision of the regulations related to publishing textual 
descriptions of critical habitat boundaries in the Code of Federal 
Regulations and as part of our response to Executive Order 13563 (Jan. 
18, 2011) directing Federal agencies to review their existing 
regulations and then to modify or streamline them in accordance with 
what they learned.

DATES: This rule is effective August 23, 2021.

ADDRESSES: This final rule is available online at the Federal 
eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Executive Summary

    Why we need to publish a rule amendment. We have reviewed our 
critical habitat designations published in the Code of Federal 
Regulations for plants. Based on that review, we have found that we can 
provide more cost-efficient, helpful, and streamlined critical habitat 
designations by removing the often-lengthy textual descriptions of 
critical habitat boundaries from those designations for which the maps 
have been determined to be sufficient to stand as the official 
delineation of critical habitat. This rule does not increase, decrease, 
or in any other way alter the critical habitat designations from which 
we are removing the textual descriptions of boundaries. A change to the 
Code of Federal Regulations can only be completed by issuing a final 
rule.
    The basis for our action. Executive Order 13563 directs Federal 
agencies to review their existing regulations and then to modify or 
streamline them in accordance with what they learned. This action 
results from our review of

[[Page 38573]]

our critical habitat regulations. This change will save taxpayer 
resources and make the critical habitat designations published in the 
Code of Federal Regulations more user-friendly.

Background

    On May 1, 2012, we published a final rule (77 FR 25611) revising 
our regulations related to publishing textual descriptions of proposed 
and final critical habitat boundaries in the Federal Register for 
codification in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). In the interest 
of making the process of designating critical habitat more user-
friendly for affected parties and the public as a whole, as well as 
more efficient and cost effective, we maintained the publication of 
maps of proposed and final critical habitat designations but made 
optional the inclusion of any textual description of the boundaries of 
the designation in the Federal Register for codification in the CFR. 
The boundaries of critical habitat as mapped or otherwise described in 
the Regulation Promulgation section of a rulemaking that is published 
in the Federal Register is the official delineation of the critical 
habitat designation. This approach began with critical habitat 
designations published after the effective date of the final rule (May 
31, 2012).
    Specifically, for critical habitat rules published after May 31, 
2012, the map(s), as clarified or refined by any textual language 
within the rule, establish the legal boundaries of a critical habitat. 
Each critical habitat area is shown on a map, with more-detailed 
information discussed in the preamble or the rulemaking documents 
published in the Federal Register. The map published in the CFR is 
generated from the coordinates and/or plot points corresponding to the 
location of the boundaries. These coordinates and/or plot points are 
included in the administrative record for the designation and are 
available to the public online and at the Service field office 
responsible for the designation. In addition, if the Service concludes 
that additional tools or supporting information are appropriate and 
would help the public understand the official boundary map, we make the 
additional tools and supporting information available on our internet 
site and at the Service field office responsible for the critical 
habitat designation.
    The preamble to the May 1, 2012, final rule (77 FR 25611) explained 
how the Service would handle boundaries for critical habitat that had 
already been designated before May 31, 2012; the rule states that ``for 
existing critical habitat designations, we also intend to remove the 
textual descriptions of final critical habitat boundaries set forth in 
the CFR in order to save the annual reprinting cost, but we must do so 
in separate rulemakings to ensure that removing the textual 
descriptions does not change the existing boundaries of those 
designations'' (77 FR 25618). We have now begun applying this approach 
to critical habitat designations promulgated prior to May 31, 2012. 
This rule is the third, and final, in a series of rules based on our 
evaluation of the map(s) in each critical habitat designation at 50 CFR 
17.95, 17.96, and 17.99 to remove the textual descriptions without 
changing the existing boundaries of those designations if we determine 
the map(s) will be sufficient to inform the public of the boundaries of 
the designations and can therefore stand as the official delineation of 
the designation.
    On October 27, 2017, we published a final rule (82 FR 49751) 
removing textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those 
designations for plants on the Hawaiian Islands of Kauai, Niihau, and 
Hawaii at 50 CFR 17.99. That final rule established that the map, as 
clarified or refined by any textual language within the rule, 
constitutes the definition of the boundaries of the critical habitat 
for the applicable designation. It did not alter the locations of any 
boundaries.
    On April 27, 2018, we published a final rule (83 FR 18698) removing 
textual descriptions of critical habitat boundaries from those 
designations for mammals, birds, amphibians, fishes, clams, snails, 
arachnids, crustaceans, and insects for which the maps were determined 
to be sufficient to stand as the official delineation of critical 
habitat at 50 CFR 17.95. That final rule established that the map, as 
clarified or refined by any textual language within the rule, 
constitutes the definition of the boundaries of the critical habitat 
for the applicable designation. For critical habitat designations at 50 
CFR 17.95(a)-(b) and (d)-(i) with maps that did not meet our 
sufficiency criteria, we added a statement (``The map provided is for 
informational purposes only.'') to clarify that the textual 
descriptions, not the maps, in those entries are the official 
delineation of critical habitat. The rule did not alter the locations 
of any boundaries.
    This revision to 50 CFR 17.96 is the third, and final, rule in a 
series of rules to remove the textual descriptions of critical habitat 
boundaries from those designations for which the maps have been 
determined to be sufficient to stand as the official delineation of 
critical habitat.

This Rule

    For 50 CFR 17.96, we evaluated the map(s) in each entry to 
determine whether or not the map(s) can stand as the official 
delineation of the designation. All of the entries in 50 CFR 17.96 fall 
within 17.96(a) (critical habitat for flowering plants). In each entry 
we looked for a combination of certain map elements--including, but not 
limited to, the name of the species (or of the grouping of species), 
the unit number and/or name, the names of counties and/or States shown, 
a clear map key, and an appropriate map scale--to determine whether or 
not the maps are sufficient to serve as the official delineation of the 
designation.
    In this rule, we are removing the textual descriptions of critical 
habitat boundaries from those entries at 50 CFR 17.96(a) that have maps 
sufficient to stand as the official delineation of the designation. In 
those entries, we are removing the word ``Note:'' (or ``NOTE:'' or 
``Note:'') if it precedes a map that will now stand as the official 
delineation of the critical habitat designation. For critical habitat 
designations at 50 CFR 17.96(a) with maps that do not meet our 
sufficiency criteria, we are adding a statement (``[The] map provided 
is for informational purposes only.'') to clarify that the textual 
descriptions, not the maps, in those entries are the official 
delineation of critical habitat.
    For certain designations, we are retaining the textual descriptions 
of the boundaries of either the entire designated critical habitat unit 
or of the areas excluded from the critical habitat designation to 
clarify or refine the provided map, in accordance with 50 CFR 17.94. We 
determined that for some designations, providing textual descriptions 
of the boundaries enhanced the clarity of the designation, so we have 
opted to retain those textual descriptions. In addition, we found that 
in some instances retaining the textual description of an excluded area 
is necessary because the relevant map(s) do not adequately show the 
excluded area(s), which can be very small within a much larger critical 
habitat unit. Retaining those textual descriptions ensures that the 
public has accurate and complete information regarding critical habitat 
units and areas excluded from critical habitat designation.
    This rule does not increase, decrease, or in any other way alter 
the critical habitat designations from which we are removing the 
textual descriptions of boundaries. This administrative action will 
save taxpayer resources. The

[[Page 38574]]

Service spent approximately $75,500 to reprint the critical habitat 
designations at 50 CFR 17.96 for the most-recent print edition of the 
CFR. Based on a review of the print edition of the CFR, we estimate 
that this rule will remove approximately 179 pages of the relevant CFR 
volume, amounting to a savings of approximately $14,320 per year in 
printing costs for the Service. Over many years, eliminating the need 
to reprint Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate pairs and 
other textual descriptions at 50 CFR 17.96 will result in a 
considerable cumulative cost savings for the Service and the public as 
a whole. The detailed UTM coordinates or other textual descriptions we 
are removing in this rule will continue to be available online at the 
Federal eRulemaking Portal (see ADDRESSES) and at the lead Service 
field office responsible for the designation to assist the public in 
understanding the official boundary.
    We note that the Service never maintained that requiring detailed 
textual descriptions was legally necessary. Instead, the first critical 
habitat regulations required only that critical habitat designations be 
``accompanied by maps and/or geographical descriptions'' (43 FR 870 876 
(Jan. 4, 1978)). Although the Service subsequently added the 
requirement that critical habitat designations include textual 
descriptions describing the specific boundary limits of the critical 
habitat, there is nothing in the preamble to that rule indicating that 
the Service did so because the Act required it. Rather, it was in 
response to several commenters, who had opined that the proposed rule 
was not sufficiently clear in setting out the method by which critical 
habitat boundaries would be described (45 FR 13009, 13015 (Feb. 27, 
1980)).
    Removing these unnecessary textual descriptions will significantly 
reduce the length of some critical habitat designations, making each 
designation easier to locate in the CFR; will not weaken the 
effectiveness of the Act; and will not undermine the public's ability 
to identify the boundaries of critical habitat designations.
    The information printed in the CFR is the legally binding 
delineation of critical habitat. If there is ambiguity due to the scale 
of the map such that additional regulatory text is needed to ensure 
that the public has adequate notice of the boundaries, we provide 
additional regulation text. The only change to the CFR that we are 
making with this action is removing the detailed textual description of 
the boundaries of the specific areas designated as critical habitat 
(e.g., latitude-longitude and UTM coordinates). We still generate those 
data and make them available at http://www.regulations.gov and at the 
lead field office of the Service responsible for the critical habitat 
designation. Neither the critical habitat designation nor the 
underlying data on which it is based can be changed without undergoing 
a further rulemaking.
    As stated earlier, the actions we are taking in this rule do not 
increase, decrease, or otherwise alter the critical habitat boundaries 
or areas. For 50 CFR 17.96(a), we are merely removing the reference 
points (e.g., UTM or latitude-longitude coordinates) of the textual 
descriptions from existing final critical habitat designations, and we 
are doing so only where we have determined that the existing maps are 
sufficient to inform the public of the boundaries of the designations 
and can therefore stand as the official delineation of critical 
habitat. However, we will continue to provide the reference points of 
the textual descriptions at http://www.regulations.gov and at the lead 
field office of the Service responsible for the critical habitat 
designation.
    The actions we are taking in this rule require us to also revise 50 
CFR 17.94(b), to set forth an explanation of which critical habitat 
designations have maps that stand as the official delineation of 
critical habitat and which do not.
    We are publishing this final rule without a prior proposal because 
we find that there is good cause for doing so pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B). The ``good cause'' exception applies when an agency finds 
``that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.'' Publication of a 
proposed rule for this action is unnecessary because this is an 
administrative action that does not increase, decrease, or otherwise 
change critical habitat boundaries or areas. Therefore, this action 
will not affect any legal rights. Rather, it will merely reduce the 
publication length of some rules designating critical habitat, which 
will save taxpayer resources and make each designation easier to locate 
in the CFR. We find that it is in the best interest of the public to 
promulgate these administrative and technical changes to 50 CFR 17.96 
without undergoing procedures that are unnecessary.

Required Determinations

Regulatory Planning and Review--Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Order 12866 provides that the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) will review all significant rules. OIRA has 
determined that this rule is not significant. Executive Order 13563 
reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 while calling for improvements 
in the nation's regulatory system to promote predictability, to reduce 
uncertainty, and to use the best, most innovative, and least burdensome 
tools for achieving regulatory ends. The executive order directs 
agencies to consider regulatory approaches that reduce burdens and 
maintain flexibility and freedom of choice for the public where these 
approaches are relevant, feasible, and consistent with regulatory 
objectives. E.O. 13563 emphasizes further that regulations must be 
based on the best available science and that the rulemaking process 
must allow for public participation and an open exchange of ideas. We 
have developed this rule in a manner consistent with these 
requirements.

Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.)

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), 5 U.S.C. 
601 et seq., whenever an agency is required to publish a notice of 
rulemaking for any proposed or final rule, it must prepare and make 
available for public comment a regulatory flexibility analysis that 
describes the effects of the rule on small entities (i.e., small 
businesses, small organizations, and small government jurisdictions). 
However, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required if the head of 
the agency certifies the rule will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities. The SBREFA amended 
the RFA to require Federal agencies to provide a statement of the 
factual basis for certifying that the rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
    According to the Small Business Administration, small entities 
include small organizations such as independent nonprofit 
organizations; small governmental jurisdictions, including school 
boards and city and town governments that serve fewer than 50,000 
residents; and small businesses (13 CFR 121.201). Small businesses 
include such businesses as manufacturing and mining concerns with fewer 
than 500 employees,

[[Page 38575]]

wholesale trade entities with fewer than 100 employees, and retail and 
service businesses with less than $5 million in annual sales. In 
general, the term ``significant economic impact'' is meant to apply to 
a typical small business firm's business operations.
    This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities as defined under the RFA. This 
rule is an administrative action to remove the textual descriptions 
from critical habitat designations at 50 CFR 17.96(a) that have maps 
sufficient to stand as the official delineation of critical habitat. 
This action does not increase, decrease, or in any other way alter the 
areas or boundaries of the critical habitat designations from which we 
are removing the textual descriptions of boundaries.
    This action will save taxpayer resources. The Service spent 
approximately $75,500 to reprint the critical habitat designations at 
50 CFR 17.96 for the most-recent print edition of the CFR. Based on a 
review of the print edition of the CFR, we estimate that this rule will 
remove approximately 179 pages of the relevant CFR volume, amounting to 
a savings of approximately $14,320 per year in printing costs for the 
Service. While over many years, eliminating the need to reprint 
Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate pairs and other textual 
descriptions at 50 CFR 17.96 will result in a considerable cumulative 
cost savings to the Service and the public as a whole, this rule will 
result in only a small annual savings to the Service and the public.
    Therefore, for the reasons above, we certify that this rule will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.)

    In accordance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1501 
et seq.), the Services make the following findings:
    a. This rule will not produce a Federal mandate. In general, a 
Federal mandate is a provision in legislation, statute, or regulation 
that would impose an enforceable duty upon State, local, or Tribal 
governments, or the private sector and includes both ``Federal 
intergovernmental mandates'' and ``Federal private sector mandates.'' 
These terms are defined in 2 U.S.C. 658(5)-(7). ``Federal 
intergovernmental mandate'' includes a regulation that ``would impose 
an enforceable duty upon State, local, or tribal governments'' with two 
exceptions: (1) ``A condition of Federal assistance'' or (2) ``a duty 
arising from participation in a voluntary Federal program,'' unless the 
regulation ``relates to a then-existing Federal program under which 
$500,000,000 or more is provided annually to State, local, and tribal 
governments under entitlement authority''; the provision would either 
``increase the stringency of conditions of assistance'' or ``place caps 
upon, or otherwise decrease, the Federal Government's responsibility to 
provide funding''; and the State, local, or Tribal governments ``lack 
authority . . . to amend their financial or programmatic 
responsibilities to continue providing required services.'' At the time 
of enactment, these entitlement programs were: Medicaid; AFDC work 
programs; Child Nutrition; Food Stamps; Social Services Block Grants; 
Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants; Foster Care, Adoption 
Assistance, and Independent Living; Family Support Welfare Services; 
and Child Support Enforcement. ``Federal private sector mandate'' 
includes a regulation that ``would impose an enforceable duty upon the 
private sector, except (i) a condition of Federal assistance or (ii) a 
duty arising from participation in a voluntary Federal program.'' This 
rule does not produce a Federal mandate under either of these 
definitions.
    b. This rule will not significantly or uniquely affect small 
governments, because the revisions to the regulations in this rule 
should make our critical habitat designations more user-friendly and 
will make the process more cost-effective for the Service and the 
public as a whole. As such, we do not believe that a Small Government 
Agency Plan is required.

Takings--Executive Order 12630

    In accordance with Executive Order 12630 (``Government Actions and 
Interference with Constitutionally Protected Private Property 
Rights''), we have evaluated this rule, and we have determined that 
this rule does not pose significant takings implications. The revisions 
to the regulations set forth in this rule do not involve individual 
property rights.

Federalism--Executive Order 13132

    In accordance with Executive Order 13132 (Federalism), the rule 
does not have significant Federalism effects. A federalism summary 
impact statement is not required. The revisions to the regulations 
addressed in this rule are intended to promote the usability of the 
regulations and make the process of designating critical habitat more 
cost-effective, and thus should not significantly affect or burden the 
authority of the States to govern themselves.

Civil Justice Reform--Executive Order 12988

    In accordance with Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform), 
this rule follows the Civil Justice Reform principles for regulations 
that do not unduly burden the Federal judicial system, by meeting the 
requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b) of the Executive Order. The 
revisions to the regulations addressed in this rule should not 
significantly affect or burden the judicial system.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    This rule does not contain any new collections of information that 
require approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). An agency may not 
conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a 
collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB 
control number.

National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)

    We analyzed this rule in accordance with the criteria of the 
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et 
seq.), 43 CFR part 46, and 516 Departmental Manual (DM) 2 and 8.
    A categorical exclusion from NEPA documentation applies to 
policies, directives, regulations, and guidelines that are ``of an 
administrative, financial, legal, technical, or procedural nature'' (43 
CFR 46.210(i)). This rule falls within this categorical exclusion 
because it is administrative and technical in nature--it affects only 
the format in which the critical habitat boundaries are delineated in 
the regulations. However, even if an individual Federal action falls 
within a categorical exclusion, the Service must still prepare 
environmental documents pursuant to NEPA if one of the 12 exceptions 
listed in 43 CFR 46.215 applies.
    We have reviewed each of the 12 exceptions and have found that 
because this rule is administrative in nature, none of the exceptions 
apply. Although the exception at 43 CFR 46.215(h) applies to actions 
that ``have a significant impact'' on listed species or designated 
critical habitat, this action will not have any such significant 
impact, because it is administrative in nature and affects only the 
format in which critical habitat boundaries are delineated and not the 
substance of the critical habitat designations. Therefore, this action 
meets the requirements for a

[[Page 38576]]

categorical exclusion from the NEPA process.

Government-to-Government Relationship With Tribes

    In accordance with the President's memorandum of April 29, 1994, 
``Government-to-Government Relations with Native American Tribal 
Governments'' (59 FR 22951), Executive Order 13175 ``Consultation and 
Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments,'' and the Department of 
the Interior Manual at 512 DM 2, we readily acknowledge our 
responsibility to communicate meaningfully with recognized Native 
American Tribes on a government-to-government basis. We have evaluated 
the potential effects on federally recognized Tribes from these 
revisions to our regulations. We have determined that there are no 
potential effects to federally recognized Tribes, as the revisions to 
the regulations are intended to promote the usability of critical 
habitat designations and save taxpayer monies. We will continue to 
coordinate with Tribes as we promulgate critical habitat designations.

Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use

    Executive Order 13211 (Actions Concerning Regulations That 
Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use) requires 
agencies to prepare Statements of Energy Effects when undertaking 
certain actions. ``Significant energy action'' means any action by an 
agency (normally published in the Federal Register) that promulgates or 
is expected to lead to the promulgation of a final rule or regulation, 
including notices of inquiry, advance notices of proposed rulemaking, 
and notices of proposed rulemaking that is a significant regulatory 
action under Executive Order 12866 or any successor order, and is 
likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, 
distribution, or use of energy; or that is designated by the 
Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs as a 
significant energy action. This rule does not qualify as a significant 
regulatory action under Executive Order 12866 and will not have a 
significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of 
energy, and has not been designated by the Administrator of the Office 
of Information and Regulatory Affairs as a significant energy action. 
Therefore, this action is not a significant energy action and no 
Statement of Energy Effects is required.
