SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Effective January 28, 1980, the Authority and the General Counsel published, at 45 FR 3482, January 17, 1980, final rules and regulations to govern the processing of cases by the Authority and the General Counsel under chapter 71 of title 5 of the United States Code. These rules and regulations are required by title VII of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 and are set forth in 5 CFR Part 2400 et seq. (2014).

Paragraph (d) of Appendix A to 5 CFR Chapter XIV sets forth the current addresses, telephone and fax numbers of the Regional Offices of the Authority. This paragraph has been updated to reflect changes in the addresses and/or phone numbers of the Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver and San Francisco Regional Offices and the phone numbers of the Chicago and Dallas Regional Offices.

Paragraph (f) of Appendix A to 5 CFR Chapter XIV sets forth the geographic jurisdictions of the Regional Directors of the Authority. In the interest of maximizing the resources of the Office of the General Counsel and efficient and effective case processing, the General Counsel is realigning the geographical jurisdictions of the Regional Directors to more evenly distribute case intake and optimize efficiency and economy. The Office of the General Counsel will continue to transfer cases between regions on a recurring basis, as necessary, based on case intake and staffing in order to maximize its resources.

This amendment merely updates the regulations to reflect the current organizational structure of the Federal Labor Relations Authority. As this rule pertains to agency organization, procedure, or practice, it is exempt from prior notice and public comment pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A). For this same reason, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the agency finds that good cause exists for not providing a more delayed effective date. This type of action is also exempt from review under Executive Orders 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011).
