SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

Federal Management Regulation (FMR) part 102-5 was published in the Federal Register on September 12, 2000 (65 FR 54966) to establish policy regarding home-to-work transportation. Section 102-5.20 defines who is not covered by the policy within part 102-5. This final rule clarifies who is not covered by the policy within part 102-5. This final rule also refers readers to section 102-34.210 which addresses when a Government motor vehicle can be used for transportation between places of employment and mass transit facilities.

B. Executive Order 12866

This final rule is excepted from the definition of “regulation” or “rule” under Section 3(d)(3) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993 and, therefore, was not subject to review under Section 6(b) of that Executive Order.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

This final rule is not required to be published in the Federal Register for notice and comment as per the exemption specified in 5 U.S.C. 553 (a)(2); therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., does not apply. However, this final rule is being published to provide transparency in the promulgation of Federal policies.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to the FMR do not impose information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.

E. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

This final rule is exempt from Congressional review under 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates solely to agency management and personnel.
