Formatting and Non-Substantive Corrections to Authority 
Citations; Corrections

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a final 
rule in the Federal Register on September 9, 2015, that amended its 
regulations to better adhere to the Office of Federal Register's (OFR) 
guidance for formatting authority citations. In addition, the final 
rule corrected typographical errors and made other non-substantive 
corrections to the NRC's authority citations. The final rule contained 
incorrect punctuation and spacing, one incorrect reference, and omitted 
two references. This document makes additional corrections to NRC's 
authority citations.

DATES: This rule is effective on September 30, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion

    The NRC published a final rule in the Federal Register on September 
9, 2015 (80 FR 54223), that amended its regulations to better adhere to 
the OFR's guidance for formatting authority citations. In addition, the 
final rule corrected typographical errors and made other non-
substantive corrections to the NRC's authority citations. The final 
rule inadvertently included incorrect punctuation and spacing in the 
authority citations for parts 54, 95, and 110 of Title 10 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations (10 CFR).
    The final rule also included an incorrect reference in the 
authority citation for 10 CFR part 73. In a final rule published on May 
20, 2013 (78 FR 29520), the NRC moved the advance notification 
provisions to governors of affected states for shipments of spent 
nuclear fuel through their affected states from 10 CFR 73.37(f) to 10 
CFR 73.37(b)(2). There was no conforming change made to the authority 
citation for 10 CFR part 73, which still referenced 10 CFR 73.37(f). In 
a final rule published on November 10, 2014 (79 FR 66598), the NRC 
corrected this reference by changing it to 10 CFR 73.37(b)(2) in the 
authority citation for 10 CFR part 73. The September 9, 2015, final 
rule inadvertently reversed the previous correction. This document 
restores the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 to reference 10 CFR 
73.37(b)(2) rather than 10 CFR 73.37(f).
    In addition, the final rule did not include a reference to Section 
229 of the Atomic Energy Act (42 U.S.C. 2278a) in the authority 
citation for 10 CFR part 73. In a final rule published on October 14, 
2009, the NRC amended its regulations to authorize the imposition of 
federal criminal penalties on those who introduce weapons or explosives 
without authorization into specified classes of facilities subject to 
NRC regulatory authority (74 FR 52667). The authority for this 
amendment derived from Section 654 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 
(EPAct), codified at 42 U.S.C. 2278a. The September 9, 2015, final rule 
converted citations to the EPAct to their corresponding citations in 
the United States Code, but did not include a reference to 42 U.S.C. 
2278a. This document adds this reference to the 10 CFR part 73 
authority citation.
    Lastly, the final rule did not include a reference to Section 170H 
of the Atomic Energy Act (42 U.S.C. 2210h) in the authority citations 
for 10 CFR parts 20 and 32. In a final rule published on November 8, 
2006, the NRC amended its regulations to implement the National Source 
Tracking System for certain sealed sources as required by Section 
651(d) of the EPAct (71 FR 65686). In the 2006 final rule, the 
authority citations for 10 CFR parts 20 and 32 both referenced the 
entirety of the EPAct as authority, but these references were changed 
to specific references to Section 651(e) of the EPAct in a final rule 
published on October 1, 2007 (72 FR 55864), effectively removing the 
references to Section 651(d). The September 9, 2015, final rule did not 
restore this reference (codified at 42 U.S.C. 2210h). This document 
adds this reference to the authority citations for 10 CFR parts 20 and 
32.

II. Rulemaking Procedure

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. As authorized by 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the NRC finds 
good cause to waive notice and opportunity for comment on the 
amendments because it will have no substantive impact and is

[[Page 58574]]

of a minor and administrative nature. Specifically, these amendments 
are to correct punctuation and spacing and incorrect and omitted 
references in authority citations. 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. Furthermore, for these reasons, the NRC 
finds, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause exists to make 
this rule effective upon publication of this document.
