Addresses of Headquarters Offices

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are updating 
the addresses of our headquarters offices in our regulations. The 
Service will relocate its headquarters offices on July 28, 2014. We are 
taking this action to ensure regulated entities and the general public 
have accurate contact information for the Service's offices.

DATES: This rule is effective on July 29, 2014.

ADDRESSES: This final rule is available on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov under Docket No. FWS-HQ-BPHR-2014-0028.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrew Brown, 703-358-2179.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Service will relocate its headquarters 
offices to Falls Church, VA, on July 28, 2014. The address of several 
headquarters offices are referenced throughout numerous sections of the 
regulations in title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). This 
final rule updates the addresses of the Service's headquarters offices 
in the regulations. See the Regulation Promulgation section of this 
rule for the specific revisions we are making to the regulations.
    These actions are administrative in nature. We are providing 
regulated entities and the general public with accurate contact 
information for the Service's offices. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b), rules of 
agency organization, procedure, or practice may be made final without 
previous notice to the public. This is a final rule. In addition, under 
5 U.S.C. 553(d), we may make this rule effective in less than 30 days 
if we have ``good cause'' to do so. The rule provides accurate contact 
information for our offices, and this action will benefit regulated 
entities and the general public. Therefore, we find that we have ``good 
cause'' to make this rule effective on July 29, 2014.

Required Determinations

Regulatory Planning and Review--Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Order 12866 provides that the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) will review all significant rules. The OIRA 
has determined that this rule is not significant.
    Executive Order (E.O.) 13563 reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 
while calling for improvements in the nation's regulatory system to 
promote predictability, to reduce uncertainty, and to use the best, 
most innovative, and least burdensome tools for achieving regulatory 
ends. The executive order directs agencies to consider regulatory 
approaches that reduce burdens and maintain flexibility and freedom of 
choice for the public where these approaches are relevant, feasible, 
and consistent with regulatory objectives. E.O. 13563 emphasizes 
further that regulations must be based on the best available science 
and that the rulemaking process must allow for public participation and 
an open exchange of ideas. We have developed this rule in a manner 
consistent with these requirements.

Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.)

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., as 
amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act 
(SBREFA) of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121)), whenever an agency is required to 
publish a notice of rulemaking for any proposed or final rule, it must 
prepare and make available for public comment a regulatory flexibility 
analysis that describes the effect of the rule on small entities (that 
is, small businesses, small organizations, and small government 
jurisdictions). However, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required 
if the head of an agency certifies the rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
    SBREFA amended the Regulatory Flexibility Act to require Federal 
agencies to provide the statement of the factual basis for certifying 
that a rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    We have examined this rule's potential effects on small entities as 
required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, and have determined that 
this action will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. This rule updates the contact 
information for the Service's headquarters offices in our regulations 
in title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations. We are taking this 
action to ensure that regulated entities and the general public have 
accurate contact information for the Service's offices. This rule will 
not result in any costs or benefits to any entities, large or small.
    Therefore, we certify that, because this rule will not have a 
significant economic effect on a substantial number of small entities, 
a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.
    This rule is not a major rule under the SBREFA (5 U.S.C. 804(2)). 
It will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number 
of small entities.
    a. This rule does not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 
million or more. There are no costs to any entities resulting from 
these revisions to the regulations.
    b. This rule will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for 
consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government 
agencies, or geographic regions. The updating of the Service's contact 
information does not affect costs or prices in any sector of the 
economy.
    c. This rule will not have significant adverse effects on 
competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the 
ability of U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based 
enterprises.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    In accordance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1501 
et seq.), we have determined the following:
    a. This rule will not ``significantly or uniquely'' affect small 
governments in a negative way. A small government agency plan is not 
required.
    b. This rule will not produce a Federal mandate of $100 million or 
greater in any year. It is not a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.

Takings

    Under the criteria outlined in E.O. 12630, this final rule does not 
have significant takings implications. This rule is an administrative 
action to update Service addresses; it does not contain a provision for 
taking of private property. A takings implication assessment is not 
required.

Federalism

    This rule does not have sufficient Federalism effects to warrant 
preparation of a federalism summary impact statement under E.O. 13132.

Civil Justice Reform

    In accordance with E.O. 12988, the Office of the Solicitor has 
determined that the rule does not unduly burden the judicial system and 
meets the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This rule does not contain any information collection that would 
require approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.). A Federal agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a 
person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

National Environmental Policy Act

    We evaluated the environmental impacts of the changes to the 
regulations, and determined that this rule does not have any 
environmental impacts.

Government-to-Government Relationship With Tribes

    In accordance with the President's memorandum of April 29, 1994, 
``Government-to-Government Relations With Native American Tribal 
Governments'' (59 FR 22951), Executive Order 13175, and 512 DM 2, we 
have evaluated potential effects on Federally recognized Indian Tribes 
and have determined that this rule will not interfere with Tribes' 
ability to manage themselves or their funds. This rule offers Tribes 
and the general public accurate contact information for our offices.

Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use

    E.O. 13211 requires agencies to prepare Statements of Energy 
Effects when undertaking certain actions. Because this rule is 
administrative, it is not a significant regulatory action under E.O. 
12866, and it will not significantly affect energy supplies, 
distribution, or use. Therefore, this action is not a significant 
energy action and no Statement of Energy Effects is required.
