Prevailing Rate Systems; Definition of Johnson County, Indiana,
to a Nonappropriated Fund Federal Wage System Wage Area
AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing a final
rule to define Johnson County, Indiana, as an area of application
county to the Hardin-Jefferson, Kentucky, nonappropriated fund (NAF)
Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area. This change is necessary because
there is one NAF FWS employee working in Johnson County, and the county
is not currently defined to a NAF wage area.
    Effective date: This regulation is effective February 6, 2020.
    Applicability date: This change applies on the first day of the
first applicable pay period beginning on or after February 6, 2020.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Madeline Gonzalez, by telephone at
(202) 606-2858 or by email at [email protected].
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 20, 2019, OPM issued a proposed
rule (84 FR 49483) to define Johnson County, IN, as an area of
application county to the Hardin-Jefferson, KY, NAF FWS wage area.
    The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee (FPRAC), 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 proposed rule had a 30-day comment period, during which OPM
received no comments.
Regulatory Impact Analysis
    This action is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under the
terms of Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993)
and is therefore not subject to review under E.O. 12866 and 13563 (76
FR 3821, January 21, 2011).
Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs
    This rule is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because
this rule is not significant under E.O. 12866.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
    OPM certifies that this rule will not have a significant economic
impact on a substantial number of small entities because they will
affect only Federal agencies and employees.
    We have examined this rule in accordance with Executive Order
13132, Federalism, and have determined that this rule will not have any
negative impact on the rights, roles and responsibilities of State,
local, or tribal governments.
Civil Justice Reform
    This regulation meets the applicable standard set forth in
Executive Order 12988.
Unfunded Mandates Act of 1995
    This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and
tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100
million or more in any year and it will not significantly or uniquely
affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary
under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.
Congressional Review Act
    This action pertains to agency management, personnel, and
organization and does not substantially affect the rights or
obligations of nonagency parties and, accordingly, is not a ``rule'' as
that term is used by the Congressional Review Act (Subtitle E of the
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA)).
Therefore, the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801 does not apply.
Paperwork Reduction Act
    This rule does not impose any new reporting or record-keeping
requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act.
