Start Preamble

AGENCY:

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The National Archives and Records Administration is revising its regulation that lists NARA facilities and hours when the public and other Federal agency staff may use the records in those facilities. This rule updates information on NARA facilities throughout the United States, including the addition of two new facilities and the deletion of a closed NARA facility. Additional revisions include corrections to addresses, providing e-mail addresses for the Presidential libraries, the addition and correction of phone and fax numbers, and, in some cases, modifications to the hours that these facilities are open for research. This rule affects members of the public who visit or do research at NARA facilities.

DATES:

This rule is effective June 22, 2000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NARA published a notice of proposed rulemaking on May 8, 2000, at 65 FR 26542. The comment period ended June 7, 2000. NARA received no public comments.

This rule is effective upon publication for “good cause” as permitted by the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). NARA believes that delaying the effective date for 30 days is unnecessary as this rule represents a minor technical amendment. Moreover, as the public benefits immediately being provided with accurate contact information for all current NARA facilities, any delay in the effective date would be contrary to the public interest.

This rule is not a significant regulatory action for purposes of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993, and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, it is hereby certified that this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule does not have federalism implications. It is not a major rule as defined in 5 U.S.C. chapter 8.
