SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 March 1, 2000, Federal Register (65 FR 11036), GIPSA asked persons interested in providing official services in the geographic areas assigned to Ohio Valley, Idaho, Lewiston, Utah, and Mississippi to submit an application for designation. Applications were due by March 30, 2000. Each was the sole applicant for designation to provide official services in the entire area currently assigned to them, so 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)(l)(B), determined that each official agency is able to provide official services in the geographic areas, specified in the March 1, 2000, Federal Register, for which they applied. Interested persons may obtain official services by calling the telephone numbers listed below. Start Printed Page 53263
