This action has been reviewed and determined not to be a rule or regulation as defined in Executive Order 12866 and Departmental Regulation 1512-1; therefore, the Executive Order and Departmental Regulation do not apply to this action.

In the December 1, 1999, Federal Register (64 FR 67246), GIPSA asked persons interested in providing official services in the geographic areas assigned to Kansas, Minot, and Tri-State to submit an application for designation. Applications were due by December 30, 1999. Kansas, Minot, and Tri-State, the only applicants, each applied for designation to provide official services in the entire area currently assigned to them. Since these they were the only applicants, GIPSA did not ask for comments on the applicants.

GIPSA evaluated all available information regarding the designation criteria in section 7(f)(l)(A) of the Act and, according to section 7(f)(1)(B), determined that Kansas, Minot, and Tri-State are able to provide official services in the geographic areas, specified in the December 1, 1999, Federal Register, for which they applied. Interested persons may obtain official services by calling the telephone numbers listed below.
