In FR Doc. 02-17103, 67 FR 45822, July 10, 2002, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) inadvertently omitted its assessment of the applicability of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act from Section X of the preamble, titled “Regulatory Analyses.” This document provides that assessment.
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act
The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-4) requires agencies to prepare a written assessment of the costs, benefits, and other effects of proposed or final rules that include a Federal mandate likely to result in the expenditures by State, local or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of more than $100 million annually (adjusted annually for inflation with base year of 1995). Adjusting this amount by the implicit gross domestic product price deflator for the year 2000 results in $109 million (106.99/98.11 = 1.09). The assessment may be included in conjunction with other assessments.
The final rule (67 FR 45822 at 45872-45883) is not estimated to result in expenditures by State, local or tribal governments of more than $109 million Start Printed Page 49264annually.
