Migratory Bird Permits; Administrative
Updates to 50 CFR Parts 21 and 22
AGENCY
: Fish and Wildlife Service,
Interior.
ACTION
: Final rule.
SUMMARY
: We, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (Service), are
renumbering, renaming, and rearranging
certain subparts and sections in our
regulations. These changes will provide
users a more organized road map of the
Service’s migratory bird and eagle
permit processes and improve
readability of the regulations. These
changes necessitate updating cross-
references to the affected section
numbers in other parts of our
regulations. In addition, we are making
several nonsubstantive, editorial
revisions to correct misspellings, update
internet addresses, update applicable
Office of Management and Budget
(OMB) control numbers, and add or
update relevant family and scientific
names. This rule is a purely
administrative action; it does not change
the species protected by, the permit
requirements of, or any other
requirements of the regulations.
DATES
: This rule is effective February 7,
2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Background
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is
the Federal agency delegated with the
primary responsibility for managing
migratory birds. Our authority derives
from the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of
1918, as amended, 16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.
(MBTA), which implements
conventions with Great Britain (for
Canada), Mexico, Japan, and the Russia
Federation. The MBTA protects certain
migratory birds from take, except as
permitted under the MBTA. We
implement the provisions of the MBTA
through regulations in parts 10, 13, 20,
21, and 22 of title 50 of the Code of
Federal Regulations (CFR). Regulations
pertaining to migratory bird permits are
set forth at 50 CFR part 21.
In addition, the Bald and Golden
Eagle Protection Act, 16 U.S.C. 668 et
seq. (Eagle Act), prohibits take of bald
eagles and golden eagles except
pursuant to Federal regulations. The
Eagle Act authorizes the Secretary of the
Interior to issue regulations to permit
the ‘‘taking’’ of eagles for various
purposes, including the protection of
‘‘other interests in any particular
locality’’ (16 U.S.C. 668a), provided the
taking is compatible with the
preservation of eagles. Regulations
pertaining to eagle permits are set forth
at 50 CFR part 22.
The regulations at 50 CFR parts 21
and 22 were established in 1974. Since
1974, we have published many rules to
add, revise, or remove portions of these
regulations. We have not, however,
published a reorganization rule to
address the need for better organization
and enhanced readability of these
regulations until this time.
This Rule
Renaming and Renumbering of Sections
of the Regulations
We are renumbering most of the
sections, and renaming and rearranging
certain sections, in 50 CFR parts 21 and
22. Below, we provide a redesignation
table to help the public readily identify
the new numbers, names, and locations
of applicable regulations (see tables 1
and 2, below). Only those subparts or
sections that are redesignated, renamed,
and/or rearranged are reflected in the
tables below; the revised table of
contents following each table shows
every subpart and section heading in
each part. These actions are
administrative in nature; we are not
changing the species protected by, the
permit requirements of, or any other
requirements of the regulations.
We are making these changes for a
variety of reasons. First, some subpart
headings in 50 CFR parts 21 and 22 lack
specificity. Second, some sections of 50
CFR parts 21 and 22 contain many and
varied requirements that will be easier
to locate when placed in their own
sections with more descriptive section
headers. Third, several sections will be
easier to find when placed under a
different subpart. Last, the current
sequential numbering of sections,
without adequate intervening open
section numbers, requires new
regulations to be placed as space allows.
These changes will allow for clear and
understandable future additions to the
regulations.
All of the changes to the regulations
described in this rule are intended to
improve the clarity and readability of
the regulations at 50 CFR parts 21 and
22. They are administrative in nature
and do not change the substance of the
regulations. These changes should help
readers more easily locate applicable
regulations and help the Service provide
a clearer and more organized
presentation of the permit regulations
for migratory birds and eagles now and
in the future.

Editorial Corrections
Cross-References in Other Parts of Our
Regulations
Because we are renumbering all
sections, and renaming and rearranging
certain sections, in 50 CFR parts 21 and
22, we need to correct outdated cross-
references to these sections in other
parts of our regulations. These updates
are administrative in nature; they do not
change the species protected by, the
permit requirements of, or any other
requirements of the regulations.
Other Corrections
In this rule, we are making several
nonsubstantive, editorial revisions to
correct misspellings, update internet
addresses, update applicable OMB
control numbers and information
collection statements, and add or update
relevant family and scientific names in
certain sections of 50 CFR parts 21 and
22.
Our updates to applicable OMB
control numbers provide the currently
approved OMB control numbers for the
information collection requirements in
50 CFR parts 21 and 22. Our updates to
information collection statements in
certain sections of 50 CFR parts 21 and
22 provide a consistent approach to the
presentation of this information in our
regulations and, for those affected
sections, streamline the information in
our regulations to codify only the
information needed to notify the public
that the information collection
requirements are approved by OMB. In
those sections, we are removing burden
estimates from the regulations because it
is our current practice not to include
these estimates, as they do change on
occasion and any changes would require
us to publish a rulemaking document to
update the regulations. All current and
past burden estimates for OMB control
numbers are available online at http://
www.reginfo.gov under the ‘‘Information
Collection Review’’ tab.
Our additions or updates to relevant
family and scientific names include, but
are not limited to, specifying ‘‘(family
Anatidae)’’ where we refer to migratory
waterfowl and adding scientific names,
such as ‘‘(Anas platyrhynchos)’’ where
we refer to mallard duck and ‘‘(Branta
canadensis)’’ where we refer to Canada
goose, where they are lacking in certain
sections of part 21. In addition, in
certain sections of part 21, we are
amending certain common names and/
or scientific names of species to match
those amendments adopted in the latest
revision of the List of Migratory Birds at
50 CFR 10.13 (see 85 FR 21282; April
16, 2020); these changes include, but are
not limited to, replacing the common
name ‘‘American swallow-tailed kite’’
with ‘‘swallow-tailed kite’’ and
replacing the scientific name
‘‘Psiloscops flammeolus’’ with ‘‘Otus
flammeolus’’ for the flammulated owl.
All of these editorial revisions are for
clarity, accuracy, and consistency
within our regulations. Like the other
changes described in this rule, these
revisions are purely administrative; they
do not change the species protected by,
the permit requirements of, or any other
requirements of the regulations.
Administrative Procedure Act
This rule is a purely administrative
action; it makes no changes the
substance of the regulations in any way.
We are renumbering, renaming, and
rearranging certain subparts and
sections in parts 21 and 22, and making
editorial corrections to those parts, to
provide regulated entities and the
general public with clearer and better
organized regulations. This rule is a
‘‘rule of agency organization, procedure
or practice’’ under 5 U.S.C. 553(b), and
therefore may be made final without
previous notice to the public. This is a
final rule.
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. E.O. 13563
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
reorganizes the regulations in parts 21
and 22 of title 50 of the Code of Federal
Regulations, and makes nonsubstantive,
editorial corrections to those
regulations. We are taking this action to
ensure that our regulations are clearly
organized and easily locatable by
regulated entities and the general
public. This rule will not result in any
costs or benefits to any entities, large or
small. Therefore, we certify that this
rule will not have a significant
economic effect on a substantial number
of small entities. As such, 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

879
Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 5 / Friday, January 7, 2022 / Rules and Regulations
have a significant economic impact on
a substantial number of small entities.
a. This rule will 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
administrative updates in this rule do
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 (2
U.S.C. 1501 et seq.)
In accordance with the Unfunded
Mandates Reform Act, 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 (E.O. 12630)
Under the criteria outlined in E.O.
12630, this final rule does not have
significant takings implications. This
rule is an administrative action to
reorganize our regulations at 50 CFR
parts 21 and 22; it does not contain a
provision for taking of private property.
A takings implication assessment is not
required.
Federalism (E.O. 13132)
This rule does not have sufficient
Federalism effects to warrant
preparation of a federalism summary
impact statement under E.O. 13132.
Civil Justice Reform (E.O. 12988)
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 (44 U.S.C.
3501 et seq.)
This rule does not contain any
information collection that would
require OMB approval under the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. 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 (42
U.S.C. 4321 et seq.)
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), E.O.
13175, and the Department of the
Interior’s manual at 512 DM 2, we
readily acknowledge our responsibility
to communicate meaningfully with
recognized Federal Tribes on a
government-to-government basis. In
accordance with Secretarial Order 3206
of June 5, 1997 (American Indian Tribal
Rights, Federal-Tribal Trust
Responsibilities, and the Endangered
Species Act), we readily acknowledge
our responsibilities to work directly
with Tribes in developing programs for
healthy ecosystems, to acknowledge that
Tribal lands are not subject to the same
controls as Federal public lands, to
remain sensitive to Indian culture, and
to make information available to Tribes.
We have determined that no Tribes or
Tribal lands, sacred sites, or resources
will be affected by the administrative
changes in this rule.
Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use
(E.O. 13211)
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.
