I. Authority and Section-by-Section Analysis
The ASC, since its creation under Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989, as amended (“Title XI”), has adopted and amended several regulations that appear at 12 CFR part 1102. These regulations, found in subparts A, B, C, and D of that part, relate to the ASC's implementation of The Privacy Act of 1974, the Freedom of Information Act, and various sections of Title XI.
In November 1998, the ASC moved its offices from 2100 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., to its current location at 2000 K Street, NW. Part 1102, as adopted, contained numerous references to the ASC's Pennsylvania Avenue address and one reference to its previous fax number. The ASC is amending part 1102 by removing all references to its Pennsylvania Avenue address and prior fax number and replacing it with its new K Street address and new fax number.
II. Administrative Requirements
A. Notice and Comment Requirements Under 5 U.S.C. 553
The ASC, under 12 U.S.C. 553, is required, among other things, to publish in the Federal Register for public notice and comment a general notice of proposed rule making, unless, in accordance with paragraph (b)(3)(B), the agency finds “for good cause . . . that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” The ASC finds that notice and procedure are unnecessary in connection with these rule amendments because they are nonsubstantive and essentially are nomenclature changes, as that term is defined in the Federal Register Document Drafting Handbook, page 2-31 (October 1998).Start List of Subjects
