This document is necessary to correct the statutory authority that is cited in the authority citation for part 171 of Title 10 of theCode of Federal Regulations(10 CFR). The authority citation for 10 CFR part 171 referred to section 6101 of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. The authority citation should refer to section 7601 of the Act.

Rulemaking Procedure

Because this amendment constitutes a minor technical correction to the NRC's regulations and the authority citation for the prior technical corrections rulemaking, the Commission finds that the notice and comment provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act are unnecessary and is exercising its authority under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to publish these amendments as a final rule. 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.
