Prohibition on the Exportation, Melting, or Treatment of 5-Cent and One-Cent Coins; Correction
Document Number: E7-21272
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-10-29
Agency: Monetary Offices, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This document corrects the United States Mint's regulations that prohibit the exportation, melting, and treatment of 5-cent and one-cent coins. These regulations, added in December 2006, were inadvertently allowed to expire on April 14, 2007. A final rule, which was published in the Federal Register of Monday, April 16, 2007 (72 FR 18880), was intended to extend the effectiveness of these requirements. However, that document failed to set out the revised 31 CFR Part 82 in its entirety, and this document corrects the agency's regulations by doing so.

Type: Notice
Date: 2007-10-29
Agency: Fiscal Service, Public Debt Bureau, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
Pursuant to section 11 of the Debt Collection Act of 1982, as amended, (31 U.S.C. 3717), the Secretary of the Treasury is responsible for computing and publishing the percentage rate to be used in assessing interest charges for outstanding debts owed to the Government. Treasury's Cash Management Requirements (TFM Volume I, Part 6, Chapter 8000) prescribe use of this rate by agencies as a comparison point in evaluating the cost-effectiveness of a cash discount. In addition, 5 CFR 1315.8 of the Prompt Payment rule on ``Rebates'' requires that this rate be used in determining when agencies should pay purchase card invoices when the card issuer offers a rebate. Notice is hereby given that the applicable rate is 5.00 percent for calendar year 2008.
