Marvin W. Nichols, Jr., Director, Office of Standards, Regulations, and Variances, MSHA, 4015 Wilson Blvd., Room 627, Arlington, Virginia 22203-1984, Nichols-Marvin@msha.gov, (703) 235-1910 (telephone) or (703) 235-5551 (facsimile) before June 10, 2002 and 1100 Wilson Blvd., Room 2352, Arlington, Virginia 22209-3939, (202) 693-9440 (telephone), (202) 693-9441 (facsimile) thereafter.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

On June 10, 2002, MSHA will move its Headquarters office from 4015 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, Virginia 22203-1984 to 1100 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, Virginia 22209-3939.

Because this amendment deals with agency management and procedures, the notice and comment provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act do not apply pursuant to 5 USC 553(a)(2) and (b)(3)(A).

Good cause exists to dispense with the usual 30-day delay in the effective date because the amendments are of a minor and administrative nature dealing with a change in address.

B. Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

This final rule does not contain a new or amended information collection requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

C. Executive Order 12866 Regulatory Planning and Review

This final rule is not a “regulatory action” under section 3 of Executive Order 12866, and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. The rule is an administrative action that changes the address of a Federal agency. Because the rule is limited to agency organization, management and personnel, it falls within the exclusion set forth in section 3(d)(3) of the Executive Order.

In promulgating this rule, the Agency has adhered to the regulatory philosophy and applicable principles of regulation set forth in section 1 of the Executive Order.

D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

For purposes of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, this rule does not include any Federal mandate that may result in increased expenditures by State, local or tribal governments, or by the private sector.
