Start Preamble

AGENCY:

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The National Archives and Records Administration is amending its regulation that lists NARA facilities and hours when the public and other Federal agency staff may use the records in those facilities. This final rule includes corrections to email addresses for the Presidential libraries, corrections to phone and fax numbers, and in some cases, modifies the hours that these facilities are open for research. In addition, NARA is also implementing a uniform policy on research room facility closings for Federal holidays in order to standardize them throughout NARA. This final rule affects members of the public who do research at NARA facilities.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

June 27, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The proposed rule was published in the April 15, 2002, Federal Register (67 FR 18146) for a 60-day comment period. NARA did not receive any comments.

This rule is effective upon publication for “good” cause as permitted by the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). NARA believes that delaying the effective date for 30 days is unnecessary as this rule represents minor technical amendments. Moreover, as the public benefits immediately being provided with corrections to email addresses for the Presidential libraries, phone and fax numbers, and in some cases, modifications to the hours that these facilities are open for research, any delay in the effective date would be contrary to the public interest.

This rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, I certify that this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. This regulation does not have any federalism implications.
