(77 FR 39899), and effective on August 6, 2012. That final rule amended 
the NRC regulations to make technical corrections, including updating 
the street address for the Region I office, correcting authority 
citations and typographical and spelling errors, and making other edits

correct the statutory authority that is cited in one of the authority

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 6, 2012 (77 FR 39899), the NRC 
published a final rule in the Federal Register amending its regulations 
to make technical corrections. This document is necessary to correct 
the statutory authority that is cited in the authority citation for 
part 171 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). The 
authority citation for 10 CFR part 171 referred to section 6101 of the 
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. The authority citation 
should refer to section 7601 of the Act.

Rulemaking Procedure

    Because this amendment constitutes a minor technical correction to 
the NRC's regulations and the authority citation for the prior 
technical corrections rulemaking, the Commission finds that the notice 
and comment provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act are 
unnecessary and is exercising its authority under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) 
to publish these amendments as a final rule. These amendments do not 
require action by any person or entity regulated by the NRC. Also, the 
final rule does not change the substantive responsibilities of any 
person or entity regulated by the NRC.

    Annual charges, Byproduct material, Holders of certificates,

    For the reasons set out in the preamble and under the authority of 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended; the Energy Reorganization 
Act of 1974, as amended; and 5 U.S.C. 552 and 553, 10 CFR part 171 is
