AGENCY:

Office of Labor-Management Standards, Employment Standards Administration, United States Department of Labor.

ACTION:

Proposed rule; extension of comment period.

SUMMARY:

This document extends the period for comments on the proposed rule published on May 12, 2008 (73 FR 27346). The proposed rule would make several revisions to the current Form LM-2, which is used by the largest labor organizations to file their annual financial reports under the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959, as amended, and would establish a procedure and standards by which the Secretary of Labor may revoke a particular labor organization's privilege to file a simplified annual report, Form LM-3, for a limited time where appropriate, after investigation, due notice and opportunity for a hearing. The comment period, which was to expire on June 26, 2008, is extended to July 11, 2008.

DATES:

Comments on the proposed rule published on May 12, 2008 (73 FR 27346) must be received on or before July 11, 2008.
