The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB or the Board) hereby amends its rules of practice and procedure in order to correct a minor drafting error in the Board's regulations.
Effective April 17, 2015.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
William D. Spencer, Clerk of the Board, Merit Systems Protection Board, 1615 M Street NW., Washington, DC 20419; phone: (202) 653-7200; fax: (202) 653-7130; or email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
On October 12, 2012, the MSPB published a final rule that made numerous amendments to its regulations. 77 FR 62350. In making these amendments, the MSPB inadvertently repeated the language of 5 CFR 1201.183(c)(2) in 5 CFR 1201.183(c)(3). Accordingly, the Board now removes 5 CFR 1201.183(c)(3) as unnecessary and duplicative.
This amendment removing 5 CFR 1201.183(c)(3) corrects a minor drafting error and makes no substantive change to the MSPB's regulations. As a result, the Board finds good cause to forego notice and comment rulemaking and to make this final rule effective upon publication.
List of Subjects in 5 CFR Part 1201
Administrative practice and procedure.
Accordingly, for the reasons set forth in the preamble, the Board amends 5 CFR part 1201 as follows:
PART 1201—PRACTICES AND PROCEDURES
1. The authority citation for 5 CFR part 1201 continues to read as follows:
5 U.S.C. 1204, 1305, and 7701, and 38 U.S.C. 4331, unless otherwise noted.
2. Amend § 1201.183 by removing paragraph (c)(3).
William D. Spencer,
Clerk of the Board.
