Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration, USDA.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This final rule removes certain regulations promulgated under the Packers and Stockyards Act, 1921 (P&S Act). Under the authority granted to the Secretary of Agriculture (Secretary) and delegated to the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA), GIPSA is authorized to issue regulations necessary to carry out the provisions of the P&S Act. As directed by Congress in Section 731, Division A, of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, GIPSA is rescinding certain regulations issued under the P&S Act. GIPSA is exercising the good cause exceptions provided by the Administrative Procedure Act to forgo notice-and-comment rulemaking and proceed directly to a final rule, because notice and comment rulemaking is impracticable and unnecessary since Congress has ordered the rescission of these specific sections.

DATES:

Effective February 5, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 731 of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, Public Law 113-235, requires that: “the Secretary of Agriculture shall, within 60 days after the date of enactment of this Act, rescind sections 201.2(o), 201.3(a), and 201.215(a), of title 9 of the Code of Federal Regulations (as in effect on such date).” Since notice and comment is unnecessary and impracticable, GIPSA is exercising the good cause exceptions provided by the Administrative Procedure Act to forgo notice-and-comment rulemaking and proceed directly to a final rule to rescind sections 201.2(o), 201.215(a) and 201.3(a) from title 9 of the Code of Federal Regulations. As part of this final rule, we are also correcting the authority citation for Part 201.
