This new system of records consists of unclassified criminal law enforcement records collected and produced by the following Department of Justice components: the Federal Bureau of Prisons; the United States VerDate jul<14>2003 16:03 Jul 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 Marshals Service; and the State of Washington field offices of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This information is being contributed to and maintained in this system as part of the Department of Justice’s Law Enforcement Information Sharing Program (LEISP). A principal purpose of LEISP is to ensure that Department of Justice criminal law enforcement information is available for users at all levels of government so that they can more effectively investigate, disrupt, and deter criminal activity, including terrorism, and protect the national security. RDEX furthers this purpose by consolidating certain law enforcement information from other Department of Justice systems in order that it may more readily be available for sharing with other law enforcement entities. As an initial pilot program, RDEX will serve as a technical interface between the Department and federal, state, and local members of the Northwest Law Enforcement Information Exchange, which is a regional law enforcement information sharing system. Because this system consists of information from other existing Department of Justice systems, the routine uses applicable to this system are substantially the same as those that apply to those systems and that have previously been published by the individual Department of Justice components that contributed the information. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), the public is given a 30-day period in which to comment; and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which has oversight responsibility under the Privacy Act, requires a 40-day period in which to conclude its review of the system.

United States of America v. Greater Pittsburgh Board of Realtors, Civil Action No. 72–499. The Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (‘‘RAMP’’), the successor to the Greater Pittsburgh Broad of Realtors, is bound by a Final Judgment that settled allegations defendants published, circulated, and adhered to agreed-upon uniform rates of commissions and fees in violation of the Sherman Act. The Final Judgment was entered on May 21, 1973 and prohibited the defendants from agreeing on prices and from publishing any rate or commission for the sale of real estate. RAMP publishes Pittsburgh Homes Guide by Realtors, a real estate listings magazine. Member real estate professionals purchase advertising to describe the services they offer. At least one firm offering real estate brokerage services has attempted to purchase advertising that would contain information about discounted fees. RAMP has informed that firm that it will not published the advertising because the Final Judgment prohibits it. The modified consent decree would strike that provision and add a provision making it clear that RAMP can publish information about real estate commissions and fees set by an individual broker. If approved by the Court, the new decree will allow the public access to more information about different kinds of fees charged by real estate professionals who help sell homes. The decree will still serve its original purpose: to enjoin RAMP and its member brokers from agreeing on prices.

Civil No. 72–499 Filed: Entered: The United States moves this Court to modify the Final Judgment entered in this case. I. Background The Complaint, filed on June 21, 1972, alleged that the defendants violated Section 1 of the Sherman Act by agreeing to fix commission rates in connection with the sale of property in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. The complaint alleged, inter alia, that the defendants published, circulated, and adhered to the agreed-upon uniform rates of commissions and fees. On April 16, 1973, the United States filed its proposed consent judgment. The Court entered the judgment on May 21, 1973. The Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (‘‘RAMP’’) is the successor-in-interest to defendant Greater Pittsburgh Board of Realtors, RAMP is a local real estate board which governs the membership and professional responsibility of the Realtors who list and show properties in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. Pursuant to section III of the Final Judgment, the consent decree is binding on RAMP. Traditionally, real estate agents have charged sellers of property a commission based on a percentage of the sales price of the property sold. The majority of real estate agents will price their services in this manner. However, some real estate agents are now using alternative business models and charging flat fees for their services. Typically, these models offer property sellers savings vis a vis traditional commission based services. At least one discount broker, Help-U-Sell Dixie Realty (‘‘HUS’’), has entered the Pittsburgh market with an alternative business model. E:\FR\FM\11JYN1.SGM 11JYN1

Privacy Act of 1974; Notice of New System of Records

    Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 
552a, notice is given that the Department of Justice proposes to 
establish a new Departmentwide system of records entitled, ``Department 
of Justice Regional Data Exchange System (RDEX)'' DOJ-012. This new 
system of records consists of unclassified criminal law enforcement 
records collected and produced by the following Department of Justice 
components: the Federal Bureau of Prisons; the United States Marshals 
Service; and the State of Washington field offices of the Bureau of 
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement 
Administration, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This 
information is being contributed to and maintained in this system as 
part of the Department of Justice's Law Enforcement Information Sharing 
Program (LEISP). A principal purpose of LEISP is to ensure that 
Department of Justice criminal law enforcement information is available 
for users at all levels of government so that they can more effectively 
investigate, disrupt, and deter criminal activity, including terrorism, 
and protect the national security. RDEX furthers this purpose by 
consolidating certain law enforcement information from other Department 
of Justice systems in order that it may more readily be available for 
sharing with other law enforcement entities. As an initial pilot 
program, RDEX will serve as a technical interface between the 
Department and federal, state, and local members of the Northwest Law 
Enforcement Information Exchange, which is a regional law enforcement 
information sharing system. Because this system consists of information 
from other existing Department of Justice systems, the routine uses 
applicable to this system are substantially the same as those that 
apply to those systems and that have previously been published by the 
individual Department of Justice components that contributed the 
information.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), the public is 
given a 30-day period in which to comment; and the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB), which has oversight responsibility under the Privacy 
Act, requires a 40-day period in which to conclude its review of the 
system. Therefore, please submit any comments by August 10, 2005. The 
public, OMB, and Congress are invited to submit any comments to Mary E. 
Cahill, Management Analyst, Management and Planning Staff, Justice 
Management Division, United States Department of Justice, Washington, 
DC, 20530-0001 (Room 1400, National Place Building).
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), the Department has provided a 
report of this new system of records to OMB and Congress.
