On August 28, 2020, the Railroad Retirement Board published an interim final rule on guidance implementing Executive Order 13891, “Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents,” signed by President Donald Trump on October 9, 2019 (85 FR 53160). As required by the Executive Order, the rule contained policy and requirements for issuing, modifying, withdrawing, and using guidance, making guidance available to the public, a notice and comment process for significant guidance, and taking and responding to petitions about guidance. On January 20, 2021, President Joseph Biden issued Executive Order 13992, “Revocation of Certain Executive Orders Start Printed Page 22867Concerning Federal Regulation” which among other things, revoked Executive Order 13891 and directed agencies to take steps promptly to rescind any orders, rules, regulations, guidelines, or policies, or portions thereof, implementing or enforcing the revoked Executive Orders (86 FR 7049).
In order to comply with Executive Order 13992, the Railroad Retirement Board has determined that this rule is suitable for final rulemaking. The Railroad Retirement Board also finds good cause to provide for an immediate effective date for this rule, because it imposes no obligations on parties inside or outside the federal government and therefore no advance notice is required to enable employees or other private parties to come into compliance.
