Regulatory History, 74 FR 16734 (April 10, 2009).

Section 3030.11 of the Commission's rules, 39 CFR 3030.11, specifies that complainants must serve their complaints on the Postal Service via email at a specified email address. This order changes the email address referenced in 39 CFR 3030.11. To accurately reflect the current status, the email address listed in that section is, by this order, changed from “Sandra.t.broadus@usps.gov” to “PRCCOMPLAINTS@usps.gov.

Notice and effective date. Given the nature and limited extent of this change, the Commission is adopting it as a direct final rule. This rule is effective 40 days after publication in the Federal Register without further Commission action, unless the Commission receives adverse comment within 30 days of publication in the Federal Register.[1] If adverse comment is received, the Commission will publish a timely withdrawal of the rule in the Federal Start Printed Page 54755Register. The Commission directs the Secretary to arrange for publication of this order in the Federal Register.

It is ordered:

1. The Commission adopts the direct final rule that follows the Secretary's signature into the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure.

2. Interested persons may submit comments within 30 days of publication in the Federal Register.

3. The Secretary shall arrange for publication of this order in the Federal Register. These actions will take effect 40 days after publication in the Federal Register.
