Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President.
Final rule; technical amendment.
On October 12, 2001, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published a final rule establishing a new chapter in the Code of Federal Regulations for the Aviation Disaster Relief-Air Carrier Guarantee Loan Program. This technical amendment renames the chapter heading and establishes a new subchapter for the Office of Management and Budget rules to allow for the establishment of a subchapter for supplemental rules issued by the Air Transportation Stabilization Board (ATSB).
This technical amendment is effective April 9, 2002.Start Further Info

On October 12, 2001, the OMB published a final rule (66 FR 52270) under Section 102(c)(2(B) of the Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act (the Act). The section states that “the Director of the Office of Management and Budget shall issue regulations setting forth procedures for application and minimum requirements * * * for the issuance of Federal credit instruments under Section 101(a)(1)” of the Act. Section 101(a)(1) authorizes the ATSB, which is established by section 102(b)(1) of the Act, to issue Federal certain credit instruments to assist air carriers who suffered losses due to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and to whom credit is not otherwise reasonably available, in order to facilitate a safe, efficient, and viable commercial aviation system in the United States.
Section 102(c)(2)(B) of the Act authorizes the ATSB to supplement the regulations issued by OMB. This rule restructures chapter VI of 14 CFR to facilitate the incorporation of the ATSB's supplemental regulations, which are published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register. This rule also amends OMB's rules to include a technical reference to ATSB's rules.
Because this final rule is technical in nature, relates to public loan guarantees, and does not affect the substantive rights or obligations of any person, notice and public procedure are not required pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2) and (b)(B). For the same reasons, a delayed effective date is not required pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2) and (d)(3). This rule is not a “significant regulatory action” for purposes of Executive Order 12866, and is not a major rule under the Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.Start List of Subjects
