Administrative Procedure Act Sample Clauses

Administrative Procedure Act. Section 553(d) 8 of the APA permits the waiver of its 30-day delayed effective date requirement for good cause, or where a rule relieves a restriction. Also, Section 302 of the CDRIA9 requires that a federal banking agency regulation that imposes new requirements take effect on the first day of the quarter following publication of the final rule. That section provides, however, that an agency may determine that the rule should take effect earlier upon a finding of good cause. The OTS believes that the final rule will relieve regulatory burden by eliminating obsolete, redundant and unnecessary requirements. The final rule eliminates inefficient and unduly costly regulatory requirements and better focuses thrifts on the substantive and relevant requirements. For these reasons, the OTS believes there is good cause pursuant to both the APA and CDRIA section 302 provisions to make 8 5 U.S.C. 553(d).
Administrative Procedure Act. The Administrative Procedure Act (APA), codified in part at 5 U.S.C. 553, generally requires agencies to publish substantive rules in the Federal Register for notice and comment. These notice and comment requirements generally do not apply to ‘‘a matter relating to agency management or personnel or to public property, loans, grants, benefits or contracts.’’ 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2). However, 38 U.S.C. 501(d) requires VA to comply with the notice and comment requirements in 5 U.S.C. 553 for matters relating to grants, notwithstanding section 553(a)(2). Thus, as this rulemaking relates to the Grant Program required by section 4202 of the Act, VA is required to comply with the notice and comment requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553. However, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) general notice and the opportunity for public comment are not required with respect to a rulemaking when an ‘‘agency for good cause finds (and incorporates the finding and a brief statement of reasons therefor in the rules issued) that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Secretary has concluded that there is good cause to publish this rule without prior opportunity for public comment. This rule implements the Act’s mandate to establish a new grant program that will allow VA to make grants to eligible entities that provide certain legal services to homeless veterans and veterans at risk for homelessness, with at least 10 percent of funding being utilized to provide legal services to women veterans. This is the first Grant Program of this kind, as there is currently no other active Federal source of funding focused on providing legal services to veterans. Homelessness is a national crisis, especially among the veteran population. On a single night in January 2021, there were 19,750 veterans experiencing sheltered homelessness in the United States. See, HUD, The 2021 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) to Congress: Part 1: Point-in- Time Estimates of Homelessness (2022), xxxxx://xxx.xxxxxxx.xxx/portal/sites/ default/files/pdf/2021-AHAR-Part-1.pdf. Many of these veterans have unmet legal needs that impact their ability to maintain housing. These unmet legal needs are in the areas of family law, court fees/court fines, credit issues/debt collection, expungement of a criminal record, child support issues, and tax issues.
