Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') hereby revises 17 CFR part 2, by adding a new section, 17 CFR 2.4, to allow its employee recreation association, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission Employee Recreation Association (``Association'') to use the Commission seal for permissible, ``non- official purposes,'' e.g., fundraising, social, sports, and similar activities such as selling sports apparel and novelty items imprinted with the Commission's seal. The Commission finds that since the amendment to part 2 has no impact upon a member of the public, this amendment will become effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. In addition, the Commission has determined that this amendment to part 2 relates solely to the Association's objectives which promote the welfare of Commission employees and does not in any way impinge on the Commission's core mission. Therefore, the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, which generally require notice of proposed rule making and provide other opportunities for public participation, are inapplicable. Similarly, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, Public Law 96-354, 94 Stat. 1164, do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 601(2). In addition, the amendment to 17 CFR part 2 does not impose a burden within the meaning and intent of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. Provisions related to cost-benefit analysis, in section 15(a) of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 19, are also inapplicable.
