Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This final rule makes technical corrections throughout 49 CFR, chapter III, subpart B, to various rules containing outdated references to organization structure, contacts, and addresses. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is also updating authority citations, removing obsolete and unnecessary references, and making minor editorial corrections. These amendments are necessary due to the establishment of the FMCSA by the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 and the termination of the Interstate Commerce Commission under the ICC Termination Act of 1995. This action updates the Federal motor carrier safety and economic regulations to reflect the formation of the FMCSA and its current processes and requirements, but does not make any substantive changes to the affected rules.

DATES:

The effective date of this rule is October 1, 2001.

Background

The Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 (MCSIA) (Public Law 106-159, 113 Stat. 1748, December 9, 1999) created the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the newest agency of the Department of Transportation (DOT), on January 1, 2000. The FMCSA carries out its responsibilities under authority delegated to its Administrator by the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) pursuant to 49 CFR 1.73 (see 65 FR 220, January 4, 2000). Before FMCSA was created by the MCSIA, the Director of a new Office of Motor Carrier Safety (OMCS) in the DOT was delegated authority to regulate motor carrier activities under section 338 of the FY 2000 DOT and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (Public Law 106-69, October 9, 1999). Previously, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), through the Office of the Associate Administrator for Motor Carriers (OMC), was the agency responsible for developing and administering the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). (See 64 FR 56270, October 19, 1999; 64 FR 58355 and 64 FR 58356, October 29, 1999).

Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), chapter III, Subpart B, contain Federal motor carrier regulations for truck and bus safety. On January 1, 2000, the Secretary revised the heading for chapter III to read “Chapter III—Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation.” Simultaneously, part 301 of chapter III (which referenced the FHWA organization) was removed and reserved for the FMCSA organizational structure (see 64 FR 72959, December 29, 1999).

Introduction

This final rule removes obsolete references and updates authority citations because Congress enacted the MCSIA, which created the FMCSA, and resulted in the transfer of all motor carrier functions and operations to the FMCSA. Because these amendments do not impose new requirements, notice and public comment are unnecessary. Start Printed Page 49868

Summary of Changes

The following is a summary of technical amendments made under this final rule. Minor editorial changes, for example, typographical and punctuation errors, and certain other minor adjustments to improve clarification of the rules are not discussed. All references to Federal Highway Administration, FHWA, OMC, OMCS, Office of Motor Carrier and Highway Safety, Interstate Commerce Commission, ICC, and Commission, are replaced with “Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration” and “FMCSA.” All references to Associate Administrator for Motor Carriers are replaced with “Administrator”; Office of Motor Carrier Research and Standards is replaced with “Office of Bus and Truck Standards and Operations”; Office of Motor Carrier Information Analysis is replaced with “Office of Data Analysis and Information Systems”; and Licensing and Insurance Division is replaced with “Licensing Team” or “Insurance Compliance”.

All references to Regional Director of Motor Carriers are replaced with “Field Administrator,” “Division Administrator,” or “State Director”; Safety Technology and Information Management Division, HHS-10, and HHS-30 are replaced with “Office of Enforcement and Compliance (MC-ECH)”; HCC-10 Docket Room, Hazardous Materials Routing Dispute Resolution Docket are replaced with “Office of the Chief Counsel (MC-CC).”

We updated incorrect authority citations. We removed and reserved § 384.303 relating to State certification for FY1994 because it is no longer needed. Paragraph (c) of § 387.323 is updated to allow specifically for online insurance filings and cancellations by registered insurance and surety companies and financial institutions over the Internet. We are also removing, without replacement, paragraph (a)(4) of § 390.19, because it relates to past dates which are no longer relevant.

Rulemaking Analyses and Notices

This final rule makes only minor technical corrections to existing regulations. The rule replaces outdated language with terms more consistent with current statutory authority and codifies the transfer of regulatory responsibilities from the FHWA and the former OMCS within the DOT to the FMCSA. Substantive regulatory standards are not being changed in any way. Therefore, the FMCSA finds good cause to adopt the rule without prior notice or opportunity for public comment [5 U.S.C. 553(b)]. The rule imposes no new burdens and merely corrects or clarifies existing regulations. Therefore, good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) to dispense with the 30-day delay in the effective date requirement and the FMCSA is making the rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register.

Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures

The FMCSA has determined that this action is not a significant regulatory action within the meaning of Executive Order 12866 or significant within the meaning of Department of Transportation regulatory policies and procedures. Since this rulemaking action makes only technical corrections to the current regulations, it is anticipated that the economic impact of this rulemaking will be minimal; therefore, a full regulatory evaluation is not required.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

In compliance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), the FMCSA has evaluated the effects of this rule on small entities (i.e., motor carriers). Based on the evaluation, and since the rule merely corrects obsolete references and places no new requirements on the regulated industry, the FMCSA certifies that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

This rule does not impose a Federal mandate resulting in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.).

Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform)

This action 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.

Executive Order 13045 (Protection of Children)

We have analyzed this action 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 safety that may disproportionately affect children.

Executive Order 12630 (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.

Executive Order 13132 (Federalism)

This action has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in Executive Order 13132, dated August 4, 1999, and it has been determined this action does not have a substantial direct effect or sufficient federalism implications on States that would limit the policymaking discretion of the States. Nothing in this document directly preempts any State law or regulation.

Executive Order 12372 (Intergovernmental Review)

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Program Number 20.217, Motor Carrier Safety. The regulations implementing Executive Order 12372 regarding intergovernmental consultation on Federal programs and activities do not apply to this program.

Paperwork Reduction Act

This action does not contain information collection requirements for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520.

National Environmental Policy Act

The agency has analyzed this action for the purpose of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and has determined that this action would not have any effect on the quality of the environment.

Regulation Identification Number

A regulation identification number (RIN) is assigned to each regulatory action listed in the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulations. The Regulatory Information Service Center publishes the Unified Agenda in April and October of each year. The RIN number contained in the heading of this document can be used to cross reference this action with the Unified Agenda.
