The Merit Systems Protection Board is amending its rules of practice and procedure for review of rules and regulations of the Office of Personnel Management to reflect a change in a statutory citation. Section 6(a)(2) of the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105-339) redesignated 5 U.S.C. 2302(b)(11), which makes it a prohibited personnel practice to take or fail to take a personnel action that would violate any law, rule, or regulation implementing or directly concerning the merit system principles, as 5 U.S.C. 2302(b)(12). That statutory provision is cited in the Board's regulations at 5 CFR 1203.11(b)(2), which describes the additional information that must be submitted with a request for review of an OPM regulation where that prohibited personnel practice is at issue. Therefore, the Board is amending its regulations at 5 CFR 1203.11(b)(2) to conform to the redesignated statutory provision.
The Board is publishing this rule as a final rule pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 1204(h).Start List of Subjects
