DATES:

This rule is effective September 22, 2014, without further action, unless NARA receives adverse comments by September 10, 2014. If NARA receives an adverse comment, it will publish a timely withdrawal of the rule in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NARA is updating addresses and contact information for Presidential libraries, records centers, and archival research facilities outside of the Washington, DC area to reflect a newly-opened Presidential library, an agency-wide reorganization, and facility changes. The proposed changes reflect current contact information and include Web site addresses for additional information. These changes will affect all customers who do business with NARA.

This rule is effective upon publication for good cause as permitted by the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). NARA believes that a public comment period is unnecessary as this rule makes only minor changes to the list of current NARA's facilities and their contact information. This rule also does not have any Federalism implications.

This direct final rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of E.O. 12866 and has been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The rule is also not a major rule as defined in 5 U.S.C. Chapter 8, Congressional Review of Agency Rulemaking. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, we certify that this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities because it makes updates only to the list of current NARA facilities and their contact information.
