This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
National Mediation Board.
Proposed rule; clarification.
This document clarifies a proposed rule appearing in the Federal Register on November 3, 2009. The previous document did not include the factual basis for the National Mediation Board's certification, under Section 605 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, that the proposed rule is not expected to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The proposed rule affects only the Board's election process and the method used by the Board to determine the outcome of a self-organization vote by employees. The proposed rule would not directly affect any small entities as defined under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Accordingly, the National Mediation Board certifies that it will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities.
Comments for the proposed rule published on November 3, 2009 (74 FR 56750) continue to be accepted until January 4, 2010.Start Further Info
