In publications spawned from NASA's award of grants and cooperative agreements, principal investigators sometimes fail to acknowledge NASA's photographs and illustrations. This proposed change sets forth NASA's desire for acknowledgement in 14 CFR 1260.22.
B. Regulatory Flexibility Act
NASA certifies that this proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., because (a) few grants and cooperative agreements under 14 CFR part 1260 are awarded to small businesses, (b) it will only affect the few recipients of awards that make use of NASA photographs and illustrations in their publications, and (c) this proposed rule has no economic impact on award recipients since it only requests acknowledgment of the source of photographs and illustrations in the recipients' publications.
C. Paperwork Reduction Act
The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this proposed rule Start Printed Page 48838does not impose any new recordkeeping or information collection requirements, or collection of information from offerors, contractors, or members of the public that require the approval of the Office of Management (OMB) and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et. seq.Start List of Subjects
