Branded Prescription Drug Fee; Correction, 59897-59898 [2011-24911]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 188 / Wednesday, September 28, 2011 / Rules and Regulations Northern District of Florida, Pensacola Division. Bayou Lawn & Landscape Services, et al. (Bayou) v. Solis, et al., Civil Docket No. 11–445. The Bayou plaintiffs’ claims are similar to the LFA plaintiffs’ claims, and they also seek to preliminarily and permanently enjoin the Department’s implementation of the Wage Rule. The Administrative Procedure Act, at 5 U.S.C. 705, provides that ‘‘[w]hen an agency finds that justice so requires, it may postpone the effective date of action taken by it, pending judicial review.’’ In consideration of the two pending challenges to the Wage Rule and its new effective date, and the possibility that, in response to the CATA plaintiffs’ motion, the litigation will be transferred to another court, the Department is postponing the effective date of the rule from September 30, 2011, until November 30, 2011. This delay will allow the Department to mount an appropriate defense of the rule, and will allow for the orderly resolution of the various claims pending in two Federal courts. The delay will permit the various courts involved in the litigation to determine the appropriate venue for the resolution of all claims, and allow the Department to avoid the possibility of administering the H–2B program under potentially conflicting court orders. In the interest of administering a nationwide program in a uniform fashion during the pending litigation, the Department has determined that, in the interest of justice, a delay in the effective date is necessary.
