Proposed delay of effective date.


In accordance with the memorandum of January 20, 2009, from the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, entitled “Regulatory Review,” published in the Federal Register on January 26, 2009, the Department is seeking public comment on a contemplated delay of 60 days in the effective date of the rule entitled “State Parent Locator Service; Safeguarding Child Support Information,” published in the Federal Register on September 26, 2008 [73 FR 56422].
