This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

In accordance with Section 6(b)(5) of the Wagner-Peyser Act, 29 U.S.C. 49e(b)(5), the Employment and Training Administration is publishing final planning allotments for each State for Program Year (PY) 2000 (July 1, 2000, through June 30, 2001). Preliminary planning estimates were provided to each State on February 17, 2000. Funds are distributed in accordance with formula criteria established in Section 6(a) and (b) of the Wagner-Peyser Act. Civilian labor force (CLF) and unemployment data for Calendar Year 1999 are used in making the formula calculations.
The total amount of funds currently available for distribution is $761,735,000. The Secretary of Labor shall set aside up to 3 percent of the total available funds to assure that each State will have sufficient resources to maintain statewide employment services, as required by Section 6(b)(4) of the Act, 29 U.S.C. 49e(b)(4). In accordance with this provision, $22,312,050 is set aside for administrative formula allocation. These funds are included in the total planning allotment. The funds that are set aside are distributed in two steps to States which have lost in relative share of resources from the prior year. In Step 1, States which have a CLF below one million and are below the median CLF density are maintained at 100 percent of their relative share of prior year resources. The remainder is distributed in Step 2 to all other States losing in relative share from the prior year, but which do not meet the size and density criteria for Step 1.
Postage costs incurred by States during the conduct of employment Start Printed Page 34736service (ES) activities are billed directly to the Department of Labor by the U.S. Postal Service. The total final planning allotment reflects $18,000,000, or approximately 2.36 percent of the total amount available, withheld from distribution to finance postage costs associated with the conduct of ES business. Pursuant to Section 7(b) of the Act, 29 U.S.C. 49f(b), ten percent of the total sums allotted to each State shall be reserved for use by the Governor to provide performance incentives for public ES offices and programs; service for groups with special needs; and for the extra costs of exemplary models for delivering job services.
Differences between preliminary planning estimates and final planning allotments are caused by the use of Calendar Year 1999 data as opposed to the earlier data (12 months ending September 1999) used for preliminary planning estimates.Start Signature
