Correction of Headings to Reflect Establishment

of the Family Support Administration

AGENCY: Family Support Administration (FSA), HHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: This rule revises the name of several chapter headings currently contained in 45 CFR Chapters II, III, IV, and X to reflect the placement of certain programs within the newly-established Family Support Administration.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This renaming of chapter headings is effective April 7, 1987.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Howard Rolston, (202) 245-0392.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 4, 1986, the Secretary announced in the Federal Register (51 FR 11641) the establishment of the Family Support Administration consisting of the following HHS units:

1. The Office of Family Assistance transferred from the Social Security Administration (SSA);

2. The Office of Refugee Resettlement, also transferred from SSA;

3. The Office of Child Support Enforcement, a separate unit within HHS;

4. The Office of Community Services, also a separate HHS unit; and

5. The Work Incentive Program, transferred from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Human Development Services.

Regulatory Provisions

These programs' regulations, rules, orders, statements of policy and interpretations remain in full force and effect. However, to correct reference to these programs in the Code of Federal Regulations and to enable interested individuals and organizations to locate pertinent regulations, this document corrects chapter headings in 45 CFR Chapters II, III, IV, and X to reference the Family Support Administration.

Paperwork Reduction Act

This regulation contains no information collection requirements that are subject to OMB review under the Paperwork Reduction ACt of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Secretary certifies that this regulation will not result in a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities and therefore does not require preparation of a regulatory flexibility analysis as provided in Pub. L. 96-354 (5 U.S.C. 605(b)), the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Executive Order 12291

The Secretary has determined that his final rule is not a "major rule" under Executive Order 12291. Thus, a regulatory impact analysis is not required because it will not:

1. Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more;

2. Impose a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual industries, Federal, State or local government agencies or geographic regions; or

3. Result in significant adverse effects on competition employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises in domestic or export markets.

Waiver of Proposed Rule Making

We are publishing this regulation in final form, without notice of proposed rule making. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b), notice of proposed rule making may be waived for rules of agency organization, procedure or practice, or when the agency for good cause finds that notice is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. Since this regulation merely corrects regulatory chapter headings to refer to the Family Support Administration, the result of a departmental reorganization, and in no way revises regulatory substance, notice of proposed rule making is unnecessary, impracticable and contrary to the public interest.
