SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Office of Personnel Management published a Final Rule in the Federal Register on November 7, 2008 (73 FR 66157). Pursuant to a January 20, 2009, White House Memorandum on regulatory review, agencies are requested to consider extending for 60 days the effective date of regulations that have been published in the Federal Register but not yet taken effect, for the purpose of reviewing questions of law and policy raised by those regulations. Where such an extension is made, agencies are requested to immediately reopen the notice-and-comment period for 30 days to allow interested parties to provide comments about issues of law and policy raised by those regulations. As a result, OPM has delayed the effective date of the final rule from March 9, 2008 to May 18, 2009. OPM has also opened a 30-day public comment period.
