RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD (RRB)
Statement of Regulatory Priorities
The Railroad Retirement Board administers a retirement program for 
railroad workers and their families under the Railroad Retirement Act 
of 1974, and an unemployment and sickness benefit program for railroad 
workers under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act. Regulations 
issued by the Railroad Retirement Board under these two statutes, and 
certain Governmentwide statutes, are contained in chapter II of title 
20 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
The Board has been involved in a multiyear project to review, revise, 
and update its regulations. During this project, the Board has 
published final rules amending nearly all of its regulations. In 
addition, there are several regulations actively under consideration by 
the Board at this time. The Board's short-term plan is to publish final 
regulations to complete the total review and revision project 
undertaken previously.
The regulations issued by the Railroad Retirement Board are virtually 
all interpretive rather than legislative in nature. These regulations 
are designed to be informative and to assist the agency's constituents 
understand the benefit systems administered by the Board. In 
promulgating regulations, the agency is mindful of the burdens that may 
be imposed on the public and crafts its regulations in such a way as to 
impose the least possible burden on the public. In addition, through 
regulation, the Board makes every effort to simplify and streamline 
administration of the programs it administers. We believe that the 
Board's regulatory review program is consistent with the priorities and 
objectives of the Administration.

            ___________________________________________________________
188. EMPLOYERS UNDER THE RAILROAD RETIREMENT ACT; EMPLOYERS UNDER THE 
RAILROAD UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE ACT
Legal Authority:


 45 USC 231f; 45 USC 362(l)


CFR Citation:


 20 CFR 202; 20 CFR 301


Legal Deadline:

Abstract:


These regulations revise existing part 202 of the Board's regulations 
defining entities covered under the Railroad Retirement Act and 
Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act to reflect current law and 
administrative determinations that have occurred since the regulations 
were originally adopted.


Statement of Need:


The Board's present regulations under part 202 were, for the most part, 
adopted in the 1930s and 1940s and do not reflect current case law and 
the Board's policy and practice adopted as a result of case-by-case 
adjudication.


Summary of the Legal Basis:


The general authority for issuance of regulations under the Railroad 
Retirement Act is provided for in section 7(b)(5) of the Act (45 USC 
231f(b)(5)).


Alternatives:


None.


Anticipated Costs and Benefits:


There will be no additional costs or burdens imposed by this regulation 
over and above those imposed by the statute or existing regulation.
