For information about this final rule, please contact Ms. Charisse Cleare, Regulatory Analysis and Development, PPD, APHIS, 4700 River Road, Unit 118, Riverdale, MD 20737; (301) 851-2037.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This document makes nomenclature changes to subpart headings in 7 CFR parts 300, 301, 318, 319, 330, 340, and 355 to bring the headings into conformance with the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) requirements. These changes will ensure that all subheadings in the listed parts of title 7 are consistent with OFR nomenclature and formatting conventions. We are also making related changes within the regulations where subparts are referenced.

Miscellaneous

In addition to the changes set forth above, we are updating the authority citations for parts 319 and 330 to reflect a U.S. Code citation that has been redesignated. In the authority citations for parts 319 and 330, 7 U.S.C. 450 will be changed to 7 U.S.C. 1633.

Lastly, we are redesignating footnote 4 as footnote 3 in § 319.75-7. In an interim rule published in the Federal Register on December 29, 2014, (79 FR 77839-77841), we removed footnote 3 from § 319.75-2. When we removed footnote 3, we should have redesignated footnote 4 as footnote 3. In this document, we are making that change.

Effective Date

This rule relates to internal agency management and makes various nonsubstantive changes to the regulations in title 7, Code of Federal Regulations to reflect minor edits, updates to authority citations, and formatting changes to bring language into conformance with the Office of Federal Register requirements. Because the changes contained in this rule are nonsubstantive in nature, notice and other public procedure on this rule are unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553, notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity to comment are not required, and this rule may be made effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Further, since this rule relates to internal agency management, it is exempt from the provisions of Executive Orders 12866, 12988, and 13771. Finally, this action is not a rule as defined by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 501) and, thus, is exempt from the provisions of that Act.

Paperwork Reduction Act

This final rule contains no new reporting, recordkeeping, or third party disclosure requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
