SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background
II. Procedural Matters

I. Background

    This administrative final rule reflects the administrative action 
of changing the street address of the Oregon/Washington State Office of 
the BLM. Both the postal mailing address (P.O. Box 2965, Portland, OR 
97208) and the phone number (503-808-6001) remain the same. This rule 
changes the street address for the personal filing of documents 
relating to public lands in Oregon and Washington, but makes no other 
changes in filing requirements. The BLM has determined that the rule 
has no substantive impact on the public, imposes no costs, and merely 
updates a list of addresses included in the Code of Federal Regulations 
for the convenience of the public. The Department of the Interior, 
therefore, for good cause finds that under 5 U.S.C. 553 (b)(B) and 553 
(d)(3) notice and public comment procedures are unnecessary and that 
the rule may take effect on the date of the move, August 5, 2013.

II. Procedural Matters

Regulatory Planning and Review (Executive Order 12866)

    This administrative final rule is an administrative action to 
change the address for one BLM State Office. This rule was not subject 
to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 
12866. The rule imposes no costs, and merely updates a list of 
addresses included in the Code of Federal Regulations for the 
convenience of the public.

National Environmental Policy Act

    The BLM has found that the administrative final rule is of a 
procedural nature and thus is categorically excluded from environmental 
review under Section 102(2)(C) of the Environmental Protection Act of 
1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C), pursuant to 43 CFR 46.210(i). In 
addition, the administrative final rule does not present any of the 12 
extraordinary circumstances listed at 43 CFR 46.215. Pursuant to the 
Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 CFR 1508.4) and the 
environmental regulations, policies, and procedures of the Department 
of the Interior, the term ``categorical exclusions'' means a category 
of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment and that have been found to have no 
such effect in procedures adopted by a Federal agency and for which 
neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact 
statement is required.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Congress enacted the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 
601, et seq.) to ensure that Government regulations do not 
unnecessarily or disproportionately burden small entities. This 
administrative final rule is a purely administrative regulatory action 
having no effect upon the public or the environment and it has been 
determined that the rule will not have a significant effect on the 
economy or small entities.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This administrative final rule is a purely administrative 
regulatory action having no effects upon the public or the economy. 
This is not a major rule under the Small Business Regulatory 
Enforcement Fairness Act (5 U.S.C. 804(2)). The rule will not have an 
annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more. The rule will not 
cause a major increase in costs of prices for consumers, individual 
industries, Federal, State, or local government agencies, or geographic 
regions. The rule will not have significant adverse effects on 
competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the 
ability of United States-based enterprises to complete with foreign-
based enterprises.

Unfunded Mandate Reform Act

    The BLM has determined that this administrative final rule is not 
significant under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 because the 
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

[[Page 35571]]

in any one year. Further, the administrative final rule will not 
significantly or uniquely affect small governments. It does not require 
action by any non-Federal government entity. Therefore, the information 
required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et. seq.), 
is not required.

Executive Order 12630, Government Action and Interference With 
Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (Takings)

    As required by Executive Order 12630, the Department of the 
Interior has determined that the rule would not cause a taking of 
private property. No private property rights would be affected by a 
rule that merely reports an address change for the Oregon/Washington 
State Office. The Department therefore certifies that this 
administrative final rule does not represent a governmental action 
capable of interference with constitutionally protected property 
rights.

Executive Order 13132, Federalism

    In accordance with Executive Order 13132, the BLM finds that the 
rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the 
preparation of a federalism summary impact statement.
    The administrative final rule does not have substantial direct 
effects on the States, on the relationship between the national 
governments and the States, or the distribution of power and the 
responsibilities among the various levels of government. This 
administrative final rule does not preempt State law.

Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform

    This administrative final rule is a purely administrative 
regulatory action having no effects upon the public and will not unduly 
burden the judicial system and meets the requirements of Sections 3(a) 
and 3(b)(2) of the Executive Order.

Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal 
Governments

    In accordance with the Executive Order 13175, the BLM finds that 
the rule does not include policies that have tribal implications. This 
administrative final rule is purely an administrative action having no 
effects upon the public or the environment, imposing no costs, and 
merely updating the BLM, Oregon/Washington State Office address 
included in the Code of Federal Regulations.

Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That 
Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use

    In accordance with Executive Order 13211, the BLM has determined 
that the administrative final rule will not have substantial direct 
effects on the energy supply, distribution or use, including a 
shortfall in supply or price increase. This administrative final rule 
is a purely administrative action and has no implications under 
Executive Order 13211.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the rule does 
not contain any information collection requirements that require the 
approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, 
et seq.
