SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion of the Rule

Each year Title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations is recodified on October 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 46 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 unnecessary. 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.

Sections 25.45-2, 121.240, and 184.240

Because the posting instructions for these sections are contained in the material incorporated by reference, and not “highlighted” in the CFR, we are adding a note at the end of each section to reflect that.

Sections 30.10-22, 30.10-59, 32.20-10, 34.10-15, 35.10-3, 35.25-10, 39.20-9, 54.05-5, 54.05-20, 54.25-10, 54.25-20, 56.07-10, 56.10-5, 56.25-20, 56.30-10, 56.50-60, 56.50-105, 56.60-15, 56.60-25, 58.16-5, 58.30-15, 76.10-10, 78.17-75, 95.10-10, 97.15-55, 97.36-1, 105.10-15, 108.427, 109.563, 110.15-1, 114.400, 116.405, 116.422, 116.423, 128.310, 151.15-3, 153.365, 153.940, 160.032-3, 160.035-3, 160.055-3, 160.076-25, 160.077-11, 160.077-19, 160.151-21, 160.171-17, 160.174-17, 160.176-8, 160.176-13, 161.002-4, 170.270, 174.100, 175.400, 193.10-10, and 199.175

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). That rule did not revise the CFR sections where the standard numbers did not contain a year date. We are now adding to those sections a cross-reference back to the incorporation by reference section in each part.

Sections 118.410 and 181.410

We are revising §§ 118.410 and 181.410 by changing the first sentence in paragraph (f)(4)(v), in both instances, to conform to language that currently appears in § 95.15-5(d)(7). We are removing the words “The area of each discharge outlet” and adding, in their place, the words “The total area of all discharge outlets.” This change makes the sentence technically correct and consistent with the requirements in our other subchapters.

Sections 119.422, 128.420, 128.430, 169.608, and 182.422

The Coast Guard was petitioned to remove a word combination that forms a company trademark that currently appears in these sections. We are removing the words “grid cooler” and adding in their place the words “non-integral keel cooler” where they appear.

Section 199.610

We are revising Table 199.610(c) by changing the table entry under “Oceans” at the “199.262(a): Rescue boats” line to read “(2 and 3)”. We are making this change to clarify that the conditions in both notes 2 and 3 must be met for the exemption to apply.

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 Executive Order 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 Start Printed Page 58456incur direct costs without the Federal Government's having first provided the funds to pay those costs. This rule will 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 Executive Order 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 Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 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.
