Technical Change for Submission for Immigration
User Fee Requirements
Immigration and Naturalization Service, Justice.
This rule amends the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Service) regulations by making technical changes to the addressee where periodic summary statements of user fees collected are to be sent, and revising the name of the payee to whose attention remittances shall be forwarded. These technical changes are administrative in nature and are necessary to conform to the current organizational and supervisory structure of the Service's Office of Management.
This final rule is effective October 26, 1998.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Michael Ditkoff, Fee Policy and Rate-Setting Branch, Office of Budget, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), 425 I St., NW, Room 6240, Washington, DC 20536, telephone number (202) 305-8620.
This final rule amends 8 CFR part 286 to reflect the change in nomenclature, whereas the summary statements due on the last business day of the following month be forwarded to the Service's Chief, Analysis and Formulation Branch, in place of Fee Setting and Analysis Branch. In addition, this final rule amends the name of the payee to whom the remittance shall be made from the Service's Associate Commissioner Finance, to Assistant Commissioner, Office of Financial Management.
The Service's implementation of this rule is based on the "good cause" exception found at 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). The amendments contained herein relate to agency management in that the amendments correct nomenclature changes published in previous rules. The reason and necessity for prompt implementation is to further ensure timely receipt of the periodic summary reports, remittances, and correspondence from the public. It would be contrary to the public interest to issue the rule as proposed rule in that it wo
uld further delay executing the nomenclature changes.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
The Commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 605(b)), has reviewed this regulation and, by approving it, certifies that this rule will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because of the following factors: The technical changes addressed in this final rule are administrative in nature and are necessary to conform to the current organizational and supervisory structure of the Service's Offic
e of Management. As such, the technical changes have no significant economic impact.
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995
This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any year, and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996
This rule is not a major rule as defined by section 804 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Act of 1996. This rule will not result in a annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreign-based companies in domestic and export markets.
Executive Order 12866
This rule is not considered by the Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service, to be a "significant regulatory action" under Executive Order 12866, section 3(f), Regulatory Planning and Review, and the Office of Management and Budget has waived its review process under section 6(a)(3)(A).
Executive Order 12612
The regulations proposed herein will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the National Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with Executive Order 12612, it is determined that this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant preparation of a Federalism Assessment.
Executive Order 12988 Civil Justice Reform
This final rule meets the applicable standards set forth in sections 3(a) and 3(b) of E.O. 12988.
