USDA/FSA RIN: 0560-AH17 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: Disaster Declaration and Designation 
Abstract: This rule proposes to move regulations used by the Farm Service Agency (FSA) from chapter XVIII of the Code of Federal Regulations, formerly used by the predecessor to FSA, the Farmers Home Administration, to chapter VII, the chapter where most FSA rules are located. This rule also proposes to clarify and simplify procedures for identifying disaster areas, reorganize provisions in a more logical manner, and remove administrative provisions. The intent of this rule is to propose updated regulations to match the current USDA structure. Proposed changes to the regulation would delegate the designation authority from the Secretary to the State level, remove the requirement for a request for designation of a disaster area from a State Governor or Indian Tribal Council to the Secretary, add a simplified disaster designation in severe drought situations, and change the USDA Secretarial disaster designation process from 6 steps to 3 steps for natural disasters, including certain other drought situations.
