Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Surface Transportation Board.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

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

SUMMARY: The Chairman of the Surface Transportation Board is publishing 
the Regulatory Flexibility Agenda for spring 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: A contact person is identified for 
each of the rules listed below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), 5 
U.S.C. 601 et seq., sets forth several requirements for agency 
rulemaking. Among other things, the RFA requires that, semiannually, 
each agency shall publish in the Federal Register a Regulatory 
Flexibility Agenda, which shall contain:
    (1) A brief description of the subject area of any rule that the 
agency expects to propose or promulgate, which is likely to have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities;
    (2) A summary of the nature of any such rule under consideration 
for each subject area listed in the agenda pursuant to paragraph (1), 
the objectives and legal basis for the issuance of the rule, and an 
approximate schedule for completing action on any rule for which the 
agency has issued a general notice of proposed rulemaking; and
    (3) The name and telephone number of an agency official 
knowledgeable about the items listed in paragraph (1).
    Accordingly, a list of proceedings appears below containing 
information about subject areas in which the Board is currently 
conducting rulemaking proceedings or may institute such proceedings in 
the near future. It also contains information about existing 
regulations being reviewed to determine whether to propose 
modifications through rulemaking.
    The agenda represents the Chairman's best estimate of rules that 
may be considered over the next 12 months but does not necessarily 
reflect the views of any other individual Board Member. RIN 2140-AB29, 
as referenced on reginfo.gov.
    However, section 602(d) of the RFA, 5 U.S.C. 602(d), provides: 
``Nothing in [section 602] precludes an agency from considering or 
acting on any matter not included in a Regulatory Flexibility Agenda or 
requires an agency to consider or act on any matter listed in such 
agenda.''
    The Chairman is publishing the agency's Regulatory Flexibility 
Agenda for spring 2021 as part of the Unified Agenda of Federal 
Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions (Unified Agenda). The Unified 
Agenda is coordinated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), 
pursuant to Executive Orders 12866 and 13563. The Board is 
participating voluntarily in the program to assist OMB and has included 
rulemaking proceedings in the Unified Agenda beyond those required by 
the RFA.

    Dated: March 17, 2021.

    By the Board, Martin J. Oberman.
Jeffrey Herzig,
Clearance Clerk.
