Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
On May 15, 2012, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued an interim rule (77 FR 28471) to abolish the Montgomery, Pennsylvania, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine Chester, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties, PA, to the Burlington, NJ, NAF wage area and Luzerne County, PA, to the Morris, NJ, NAF wage area. Bucks County, PA, will no longer be defined to an NAF wage area. 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. The interim rule had a 30-day comment period, during which OPM received no comments.
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.

Accordingly, under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 5343, the interim rule published on May 15, 2012, amending 5 CFR part 532 (77 FR 28471) is adopted as final with no changes.
