SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion

1. The Commission is revising and updating Part 389 of its regulations related to the display of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control numbers,[1] by updating the existing table and revising the regulations to explain that an updated table displaying OMB control numbers is available on www.ferc.gov.

2. Part 389 aids in fulfilling the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act [2] to display current OMB control numbers for information collections. The Commission also displays OMB control numbers on its Web site at www.ferc.gov under “Documents and Filings” and then “Information Collections” or directly at http://www.ferc.gov/​docs-filing/​info-collections.asp. The Web site is updated regularly. For the most up-to-date information, interested persons are urged to consult the Commission's Web site.

II. Information Collection Statement

3. OMB's regulations require that it approve certain information collection requirements imposed by agency rule.[3] This Final Rule does not contain new or revised information collection requirements and thus does not require OMB approval.

III. Environmental Analysis

4. The Commission is required to prepare an Environmental Assessment or Environmental Impact Statement for any action that may have a significant adverse effect on the quality of the human environment.[4] Part 380 of the Commission's regulations provides exemptions to the requirement to prepare an Environmental Assessment or Environmental Impact Statement. Included is an exemption for procedural, ministerial or internal administrative actions and management.[5] This Final Rule falls within that exemption; consequently, no environmental analysis is required.

IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act

5. The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA) [6] generally requires a description and analysis of final rules that will have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This Final Rule, which revises and updates regulations on the display of OMB control numbers, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Start Printed Page 12759Thus, an analysis under the RFA is not required.

VI. Effective Date

9. These regulations are effective March 11, 2015. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), this is not a substantive rule and thus may become effective less than 30 days from publication.

10. The Commission is issuing this rule as a Final Rule without a period for public comment. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b), notice and comment procedures are unnecessary where a rulemaking concerns only agency procedure and practice, or where the agency finds that notice and comment are unnecessary. The Commission finds that notice and comment are unnecessary because the affected regulations are administrative in nature and will not substantially affect the rights of non-agency parties. Moreover, no new burden or regulatory requirement is imposed on regulated entities or the general public.
