SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion of the Rule

Each year Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations is recodified on July 1. This rule makes editorial changes throughout the title, corrects addresses, updates cross-references, and makes other technical and editorial corrections to be included in the recodification. Some editorial changes are discussed individually in the following paragraphs. This rule does not change any substantive requirements of existing regulations.

We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM. This rule consists only of corrections and editorial and conforming amendments to Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations. These changes will have no substantive effect on the public and publishing an NPRM and providing an opportunity for public comment is Start Printed Page 40053unnecessary. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.

Section 20.304

The Coast Guard published an Interim Rule, Rules of Practice, Procedure, and Evidence for Administrative Proceedings of the Coast Guard, on May 24, 1999 [USCG-1998-3472] [64 FR 28054]. We published a correction to the Interim Rule, on June 28, 1999, that corrected Table 20.304(D)—How To Serve Filed Documents. With the publication of the July 1, 1999, codification of 33 CFR, we discovered that the table was still printed incorrectly. This rulemaking sets out the table the way it was intended.

Sections 127.611, 127.1511, 154.500, Appendix A, B, and C to Part 154, and Sections 183.114, and 183.516

On December 1, 1999, the Coast Guard published a Direct Final Rule, Update of Standards from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) [USCG-1999-5151] [64 FR 67170]. On March 1, 2000, we published a confirmation of effective date for the rule [65 FR 10943]. Because we did not change the sections in the CFR where the standard numbers did not contain a year date, we are now adding a cross-reference back to the Incorporation by reference section in each part for each of the sections listed.

Section 151.19

The Frequency of Inspection Final Rule [USCG-1999-4976], published on February 9, 2000 (65 FR 6494), established a 5-year Certificate of Inspection cycle to harmonize the Coast Guard's inspections with internationally required certificates. We published the final rule to establish the frequency of inspection requirements to meet the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, and the International Convention on Load Line compliance date of February 3, 2000. This rule changes section 151.19 to conform to the February final rule.

Section 153.205

This rule updates the addresses and telephone numbers in Table 1, Addresses and Telephone Numbers of Coast Guard District Offices and EPA Regional Offices.

Section 154.1035

This rule sets out paragraph (e)(3)(iii) with the correct location of the words “classified” and “classification”. The words are reversed in the current codification.

Regulatory Evaluation

This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. It has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget under that Order. It is not significant under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Transportation (DOT) (44 FR 11040; February 26, 1979). We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation under paragraph 10e of the regulatory policies and procedures of DOT is unnecessary. As this rule involves internal agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any costs on the public.

Collection of Information

This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

Federalism

We have analyzed this rule under E.O. 13132 and have determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism under that Order.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) governs the issuance of Federal regulations that require unfunded mandates. An unfunded mandate is a regulation that requires a State, local, or tribal government or the private sector to incur direct costs without the Federal Government's having first provided the funds to pay those costs. This proposed rule would not impose an unfunded mandate.

Taking of Private Property

This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under E.O. 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights.

Civil Justice Reform

This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of E.O. 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

We have analyzed this rule under E.O. 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not concern an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children.

Environment

We considered the environmental impact of this rule and concluded that, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(a) and (b) of Commandant Instruction M16475.lC, this rule is categorically excluded from further environmental documentation. This exclusion is in accordance with paragraphs (34)(a) and (b), concerning regulations that are editorial or procedural and concerning internal agency functions or organization. A “Categorical Exclusion Determination” is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

Reporting and investigation.
* * * * *

(b) Reports of any investigation conducted by the Coast Guard or received from any other agency which indicate that a violation may have occurred may be forwarded to a District Commander or other designated official for further action. This is normally the District Commander of the District in which the violation is believed to have occurred, or the District in which the reporting unit or agency is found. The report is reviewed to determine if there is sufficient evidence to establish a prima facie case. If there is insufficient evidence, the case is either returned for further investigation or closed if further action is unwarranted. The case is closed in situations in which the investigation has established that a violation did not occur, the violator is unknown, or there is little likelihood of discovering additional relevant facts. If it is determined that a prima facie case does exist, a case file is prepared and forwarded to the Hearing Officer, with a recommended action. A record of any prior violations by the same person or entity, is forwarded with the case file.
