A. Background

    In the August 10, 2006, issue of the Federal Register (71 FR 
46052), the Department of the Army issued a final rule. This final rule 
corrects the mailing address for the Army Litigation Division. The Army 
Litigation Division moved to Fort Belvoir in September 2011.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Department of the Army has determined that the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act does not apply because the rule change does not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612.

C. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Department of the Army has determined that the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act does not apply because the rule change does not 
include a mandate that may result in estimated costs to State, local or 
tribal governments in the aggregate, or the private sector, of $100 
million or more.

D. National Environmental Policy Act

    The Department of the Army has determined that the National 
Environmental Policy Act does not apply because the rule change does 
not have an adverse impact on the environment.

E. Paperwork Reduction Act

Reduction Act does not apply because the rule change does not involve 
collection of information from the public.

F. Executive Order 12630 (Government Actions and Interference With 
Constitutionally Protected Property Rights)

    The Department of the Army has determined that Executive Order 
12630 does not apply because the rule change does not impair private 
property rights.

G. Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and Executive 
Order 13563 (Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review)

    The Department of the Army has determined that according to the 
criteria defined in Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563 
this rule change is not a significant regulatory action. As such, the 
rule is not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under 
section 6(a)(3) of the Executive Order.

H. Executive Order 13045 (Protection of Children From Environmental 
Health Risk and Safety Risks)

    The Department of the Army has determined that according to the 
criteria defined in Executive Order 13045 that Executive Order does not 
apply.

I. Executive Order 13132 (Federalism)

    The Department of the Army has determined that according to the 
criteria defined in Executive Order 13132 that Executive Order does not 
apply because the rule change will not have a substantial effect 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.
