SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In this decision, the Board is revising, correcting, and updating its regulations in 49 CFR ch. X. Some of these revisions are necessitated by changes made by the Surface Transportation Board Reauthorization Act of 2015, Public Law 114-110, 129 Stat. 2228 (2015) (STB Reauthorization Act).

This decision makes the following changes to the Board's regulations:

  • Eliminates or changes obsolete agency and/or office titles (e.g., 49 CFR 1105.7(b), 1152.50(d)(1)(ii));
  • corrects obsolete contact information (e.g., 49 CFR 1180.4(c)(5)(ii), 1182.3);
  • corrects references to United States Code or Code of Federal Regulations sections that have been moved [1] or are otherwise incorrect (e.g., 49 CFR 1244.9(d)(2), 1103.3(c)(2));
  • revises URL references to reflect the Board's new website [2] (e.g., 49 CFR 1001.1(d));
  • revises the Board's regulations to reflect that the STB Reauthorization Act sec. 4 expanded the Board from three members to five members (49 CFR 1011.3); and
  • corrects an omitted subheading (49 CFR pt. 1248).Start Printed Page 15076

Because these revisions are not substantive and/or relate to rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice, the Board finds good cause that notice and comment under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) are unnecessary. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A) (B).

The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements, unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Because the Board has determined that notice and comment are not required under the APA for this rulemaking, the requirements of the RFA do not apply.

These final rules do not contain a new or amended information collection requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521.
