Section 8 prohibits, with certain exceptions, one person from serving as a director or officer of two competing corporations if two thresholds are met. Competitor corporations are covered by Section 8 if each one has capital, surplus, and undivided profits aggregating more than $10,000,000, with the exception that no corporation is covered if the competitive sales of either corporation are less than $1,000,000. Section 8(a)(5) requires the Federal Trade Commission to revise those thresholds annually, based on the change in gross national product. The new thresholds, which take effect immediately, are $26,161,000 for Section 8(a)(1), and $2,616,100 for Section 8(a)(2)(A). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James F.

Section 301–10.122 of the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) (41 CFR 301– 10.122) stipulates that Federal employees, with few exceptions, must use coach-class accommodations. As a result of many airlines now charging additional fees for checked baggage, as well as for seat choice in the coach-class cabin, this bulletin was developed to clarify which of these fees may be reimbursed by Federal agencies.
