: The
National Archives and Records
Administration (NARA) is amending
our regulations on the use of NARA
facilities to allow personal photography
throughout NARA exhibition galleries,
including the Rotunda in the National
Archives Museum, unless otherwise
posted. Direct photography of the
display of the founding documents in
the Rotunda will continue to be
prohibited; however, visitors are
allowed to take selfies and other
photographs that include the Rotunda as
background. Research shows that most
museums allow non-flash photography.
By expanding the use of photography,
we will enhance the visitor experience
and raise awareness of our mission,
while continuing to maintain
preservation and security needs.
Regulatory Analysis
Review Under Executive Order 12866,
Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR
51735; Executive Order 13563,
Improving Regulation and Regulation
Review, 76 FR 23821; and Executive
Order 14094 Modernizing Regulatory
Review, 88 FR 21879.
The Office of Management and Budget
(OMB) has reviewed this rulemaking
and determined it is not ‘‘significant’’
under section 3(f) of Executive Order
12866. It is not significant because it
consists of administrative and minor
revisions, involves agency organization
and management, does not change
substantive requirements, and imposes
no costs on the public.
Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility
Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.)
This review requires an agency to
prepare an initial regulatory flexibility
analysis and publish it when the agency
publishes the proposed rule. This
requirement does not apply if the
agency certifies that the rulemaking will
not, if promulgated, have a significant
economic impact on a substantial
number of small entities (5 U.S.C. 603).
We certify, after review and analysis,
that this rulemaking will not have a
significant adverse economic impact on
small entities.
Review Under the Paperwork Reduction
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.)
This rulemaking does not impose
additional information collection
requirements on the public that are
subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act.
Review Under Executive Order 13132,
Federalism, 64 FR 43255
Review under Executive Order 13132
requires that agencies review
regulations for federalism effects on the
institutional interest of states and local
governments, and, if the effects are
sufficiently substantial, prepare a
Federal assessment to assist senior
policy makers. This rulemaking will not
have any effects on state and local
governments within the meaning of the
Executive order. Therefore, no
federalism assessment is required.
Review Under the Unfunded Mandates
Reform Act (Sec. 202, Pub. L. 104–4; 2
U.S.C. 1532)
Review under the Unfunded
Mandates Reform Act requires that
agencies determine whether any Federal
mandate in the rulemaking may result
in state, local, and tribal governments,
in the aggregate, or the private sector,
expending $100 million in any one year.
NARA certifies that this rulemaking
does not contain a Federal mandate that
may result in such an expenditure, and
this rulemaking is therefore not subject
to this requirement.
List of Subjects in 36 CFR Part 1280

buildings and facilities.
For the reasons stated in the
preamble, NARA amends 36 CFR part

2. Revise § 1280.46 to read as follows:
§ 1280.46 Filming, photographing, or

(a) You may film, photograph, or
videotape on NARA property outside a
NARA facility so long as you do not
impede vehicular or pedestrian traffic.
(b) You may film, photograph, or
videotape inside a NARA facility during
regular business hours in public areas,
including research rooms and exhibition

the following conditions:
(1) You may not use a flash or other
supplemental lighting; and
(2) You may not use a selfie stick,
monopod, tripod, or similar equipment.
3. In § 1280.84, revise paragraph (a) to

§ 1280.84 Using the Rotunda.
(a) We do not allow private group
event activities (e.g., dinner/reception,
program) to be held in the Rotunda or
the exhibit galleries in the National
Archives Museum. We may, at our
discretion, allow attendees at private
group events to enter the Rotunda and
