Proposed rule.


The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) is proposing to add a new responsibility for NRO employees under the NRO Privacy Act Program. NRO employees are now required to participate in specialized Privacy Act training should their duties require dealing with special investigators, the news media, or the public.

This amendment is triggered by a change made to the Department of Defense Privacy Program (32 CFR part 310) on August 7, 2000, at 65 FR 48169.


Comments must be received by November 6, 2000 to be considered by the agency.


National Reconnaissance Office, Information Access and Release Center, 14675 Lee Road, Chantilly, VA 20151-1715.
