AGENCY:

U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing a final rule to redefine the geographic boundaries of the Shreveport, LA; Texarkana, TX; Milwaukee, WI; and Southwestern Wisconsin appropriated fund Federal Wage System (FWS) wage areas. The final rule redefines Upshur County, TX, from the Texarkana wage area to the Shreveport wage area and Oconto County, WI, from the Southwestern Wisconsin wage area to the Milwaukee wage area. These changes are based on recent consensus recommendations of the Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee to best match the counties proposed for redefinition to a nearby FWS survey area.

DATES:

This regulation is effective on March 24, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 24, 2010, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued a proposed rule (75 FR 58339) to redefine Upshur County, TX, from the Texarkana, TX, wage area to the Shreveport, LA, wage area and Oconto County, WI, from the Southwestern Wisconsin wage area to the Milwaukee, WI, wage area. These changes are based on recent consensus recommendations of the Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee to best match the above counties to a nearby FWS survey area. The proposed rule had a 30-day comment period during which OPM received no comments.
