ANALYSIS UNDER 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(B)(i)-(iv) OF A MAJOR RULE
DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,
COMMODITY CREDIT CORPORATION
"LIVESTOCK ASSISTANCE PROGRAM"
(i) Cost-benefit analysis
There is no indication in the report from the CCC that a cost-benefit analysis was
performed. The 1999 Act limits expenditures of the program to $200 million.
(ii) Agency actions relevant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 603-605, 607,
Since the final rule was issued without the issuance of a notice of proposed
rulemaking, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act are not applicable.
(iii) Agency actions relevant to sections 202-205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform
Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1532-1535
The final rule contains no federal mandates under the provisions of title II of the Act
for state, local, or tribal governments or the private sector.
(iv) Other relevant information or requirements under acts and executive orders
Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 551 et sea.
Section 1133 of the 1999 Act (Pub. L. 105-277) provides that the final rule shall be
issued as soon as practicable and without regard to the notice and comment
provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553.
In addition, section 1133 also provides that the CCC shall issue the final rule at such
time as it determines necessary, notwithstanding the provisions of the Small Business
Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA). Therefore, the final rule is
effective upon publication notwithstanding the requirements of SBREFA that the
effective date of a major rule be delayed for 60 days to permit congressional review.
5 U.S.C. 801(a)(3).
