SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 6, 2001, we published in the Federal Register (Vol. 66, No. 151, page 40916) a final rule that adjusted the expense allowance under the Arrangement to reflect more accurately the costs of the private insurers that sell and service flood insurance under the Arrangement. That rule also revised the effective date of the Arrangement.

This final rule revises the effective date of the Arrangement to agree with the new Arrangement year that begins October 1. 2002. We are not making any other changes to the Arrangement for fiscal year 2003.

National Environmental Policy Act

The requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental Consideration, categorically exclude this final rule. We have not prepared an environmental impact assessment.

This final rule is not a significant regulatory action within the meaning of § 2(f) of E.O. 12866 of September 30, 1993, 58 FR 51735, but attempts to adhere to the regulatory principles set forth in E.O. 12866. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed this final rule under E.O. 12866.

Paperwork Reduction Act

This final rule does not contain a collection of information and is therefore not subject to the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act.
