ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This document implements amendments to the Dairy Promotion and Research Order (Order). This action is pursuant to the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (2002 Farm Bill) and the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill). The 2002 Farm Bill mandates that the Order be amended to implement an assessment on imported dairy products to fund promotion and research and to add importer representation, initially two members, to the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (Board). The 2008 Farm Bill specifies a mandatory assessment rate of 7.5 cents per hundredweight of milk, or equivalent thereof, on dairy products imported into the United States. This final rule, in accordance with the 2008 Farm Bill, also amends the term ‘‘United States’’ in the Dairy Production Stabilization Act of 1983 (Act) to mean all States, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Producers in these areas will be assessed 15 cents per hundredweight for all milk produced and marketed. DATES: Effective Dates: These amendments are effective April 1, 2011 except for § 1150.152(b) which is effective August 1, 2011.

FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY

5 CFR Part 5901


Supplemental Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the 
Federal Labor Relations Authority

AGENCY: Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA), with the 
concurrence of the Office of Government Ethics (OGE), is adopting as 
final, without change, the interim FLRA rule that supplements the 
executive-branch-wide Standards of Ethical Conduct (Standards) issued 
by OGE and, with certain exceptions, requires FLRA employees to obtain 
approval before engaging in outside employment.

DATES: This final rule is effective March 18, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rosa M. Koppel, Solicitor, at 
rkoppel@flra.gov, fax: (202) 343-1007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FLRA published, with OGE concurrence, an 
interim rule in 75 FR 79261, on December 20, 2010, governing the 
conduct of FLRA employees and requested comments. No comments were 
received. The FLRA has determined, with OGE concurrence, to adopt the 
interim rule as final without change. The interim rule being adopted as 
final provides that an FLRA employee, other than a special Government 
employee, must obtain approval before engaging in outside employment. 
The rule defines outside employment and sets out the procedure for 
seeking approval. The rule also provides that the Designated Agency 
Ethics Official (DAEO) or alternate DAEO may exempt certain categories 
of employment from the prior approval requirement.
    For a detailed section analysis of this final rule, see the 
preamble of the interim rule as published in 75 FR 79261.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The FLRA has determined, pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, 5 U.S.C. chapter 6, that this rulemaking will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because it primarily affects FLRA employees.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. chapter 35, does not apply 
because this rulemaking does not contain information collection 
requirements subject to the approval of the Office of Management and 
Budget.

Congressional Review Act

    The FLRA has determined that this rule is not a rule as defined in 
5 U.S.C. 804, and thus, does not require review by Congress.

List of Subjects in 5 CFR Part 5901

    Conflict of interest, Government employees.

Authority and Issuance

    Accordingly, the Federal Labor Relations Authority, with the 
concurrence of the Office of Government Ethics, is adopting the interim 
rule adding 5 CFR chapter XLIX, consisting of part 5901, which was 
published at 75 FR 79261 on December 20, 2010, as a final rule without 
change.
