SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On May 21 2013, OPM issued an interim rule (78 FR 29611) to redefine the Clayton-Cobb-Fulton, GA, NAF FWS wage area by removing Clarke, Clayton, and Fulton Counties, GA, from the wage area definition. The name of the wage area will be Cobb, GA. These changes are necessary because by the end of October 2013 there will no longer be NAF employment in Clarke, Clayton, and Fulton Counties. The Cobb wage area will consist of one survey county (Cobb County) and two area of application counties (Bartow and DeKalb Counties). The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee, the national labor-management committee responsible for advising OPM on matters concerning the pay of FWS employees, reviewed and recommended these changes by consensus.

In addition, this interim rule updates the name of the Columbus Consolidated Government in the Columbus, GA, NAF FWS wage area because Columbus is the official name of the entity resulting from the consolidation of the City of Start Printed Page 60182Columbus and Muscogee County in 1971.

The interim rule had a 30-day comment period, during which OPM received no comments.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

I certify that these regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because they will affect only Federal agencies and employees.
