SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OPM is issuing a proposed rule that would abolish the Newburgh, NY, appropriated fund FWS wage area and redefine the geographic boundaries of the New York, NY; Albany-Schenectady-Troy, NY; and Scranton-Wilkes-Barre, PA, appropriated fund FWS wage areas. The proposed rule would redefine Orange County, NY, to the New York survey area; Dutchess County, NY, to the New York area of application; Delaware and Ulster Counties, NY, to the AlbanySchenectady-Troy area of application; and Sullivan County, NY, to the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre area of application. The Newburgh wage area is presently composed of three survey counties (Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster Counties) and two area of application counties (Delaware and Sullivan Counties). Under section 5343 of title 5, United States Code, OPM is responsible for defining wage areas following the regulatory criteria under section 532.211 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations. Under the regulatory criteria, OPM considers the following factors when defining FWS wage area boundaries: (i) Distance, transportation facilities, and geographic features; (ii) Commuting patterns; and (iii) Similarities in overall population, employment, and the kinds and sizes of private industrial establishments. The Office of Management and Budget defines Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and maintains and updates the definitions of MSA boundaries following each decennial census. OMB’s 2013 definitions of MSAs added Dutchess and Orange Counties to the New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY–NJ– PA MSA. The New York-Newark-Jersey City is now split between the Newburgh and New York wage areas. OPM regulations at 5 CFR 532.211 do not permit splitting MSAs for the purpose of defining a wage area, except in very unusual circumstances. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS ADDRESSES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:18 Nov 27, 2015 Jkt 238001 Dutchess and Orange Counties, NY Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Union Counties, NJ; Bronx, Dutchess, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties, NY; and Pike County, PA, comprise the New YorkNewark-Jersey City, NY–NJ–PA MSA. The New York-Newark-Jersey City MSA contains parts of the Newburgh and New York FWS wage areas. Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, and Union Counties, NJ, and Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Queens, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties, NY, are part of the New York survey area. Hunterdon, Monmouth, Ocean (excluding the Fort Dix Military Reservation), and Sussex Counties, NJ; Putnam, Richmond, and Rockland Counties, NY; and Pike County, PA, are part of the New York area of application. Dutchess and Orange Counties, NY, are part of the Newburgh survey area. There now appear to be no unusual circumstances for Dutchess and Orange Counties to be split from the majority of the counties of the New York-NewarkJersey City MSA. Therefore, OPM proposes to redefine Dutchess and Orange Counties to the New York wage area. Because Orange County has a large FWS workforce of 800 employees, it would be redefined to the New York survey area. With only 39 FWS employees, Dutchess County would be redefined to the New York area of application. Delaware, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties, NY With the redefinition of Dutchess and Orange Counties to the New York wage area, the Newburgh wage area would no longer be a viable wage area and would be abolished. Its remaining constituent counties would be redefined to a neighboring wage area. In selecting a wage area to which Delaware County should be redefined, the distance criterion favors the AlbanySchenectady-Troy wage area. The commuting patterns criterion slightly favors the New York wage area. The overall population and employment and the kinds and sizes of private industrial establishments criterion does not favor one wage area more than another. Based on these findings, OPM is proposing to redefine Delaware County as an area of application county to the AlbanySchenectady-Troy wage area. In selecting a wage area to which Sullivan County would be redefined, the distance criterion favors the PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Scranton-Wilkes-Barre wage area. The commuting patterns criterion favors the New York wage area. The overall population and employment and the kinds and sizes of private industrial establishments criterion does not favor one wage area more than another.

In selecting a wage area to which Ulster County would be redefined, the distance criterion favors the AlbanySchenectady-Troy wage area. The commuting patterns criterion favors the New York wage area. The overall population and employment and the kinds and sizes of private industrial establishments criterion does not favor one wage area more than another. Based on these findings, OPM is proposing to redefine Ulster County as an area of application county to the AlbanySchenectady-Troy wage area. The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee (FPRAC), the statutory national labor-management committee responsible for advising OPM on matters affecting the pay of FWS employees, recommended these changes by consensus. These changes would be effective on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after 30 days following publication of the final regulations.

Prevailing Rate Systems; Abolishment of the Newburgh, NY, 
Appropriated Fund Federal Wage System Wage Area

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Proposed rule with request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing a 
proposed rule that would abolish the Newburgh, New York, appropriated

NY, to the New York, NY, survey area; Dutchess County, NY, to the New 
York area of application; Delaware and Ulster Counties, NY, to the 
Albany-Schenectady-Troy, NY, area of application; and Sullivan County, 
NY, to the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, area of application. 
These changes are based on a recent consensus recommendation of the 
Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee (FPRAC) to best match the 
counties proposed for redefinition to nearby FWS survey areas.

DATES: We must receive comments on or before December 30, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OPM is issuing a proposed rule that would 
abolish the Newburgh, NY, appropriated fund FWS wage area and redefine 
the geographic boundaries of the New York, NY; Albany-Schenectady-Troy, 
NY; and Scranton-Wilkes-Barre, PA, appropriated fund FWS wage areas. 
The proposed rule would redefine Orange County, NY, to the New York 
survey area; Dutchess County, NY, to the New York area of application; 
Delaware and Ulster Counties, NY, to the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area 
of application; and Sullivan County, NY, to the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre 
area of application.
    The Newburgh wage area is presently composed of three survey 
counties (Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster Counties) and two area of 
application counties (Delaware and Sullivan Counties).
    Under section 5343 of title 5, United States Code, OPM is 
responsible for defining wage areas following the regulatory criteria 
under section 532.211 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations. Under 
the regulatory criteria, OPM considers the following factors when 
defining FWS wage area boundaries:
    (i) Distance, transportation facilities, and geographic features;
    (ii) Commuting patterns; and
    (iii) Similarities in overall population, employment, and the kinds 
and sizes of private industrial establishments.
    The Office of Management and Budget defines Metropolitan 
Statistical Areas (MSAs) and maintains and updates the definitions of 
MSA boundaries following each decennial census. OMB's 2013 definitions 
of MSAs added Dutchess and Orange Counties to the New York-Newark-
Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA MSA. The New York-Newark-Jersey City is now split 
between the Newburgh and New York wage areas. OPM regulations at 5 CFR 
532.211 do not permit splitting MSAs for the purpose of defining a wage 
area, except in very unusual circumstances.

Dutchess and Orange Counties, NY

    Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, 
Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Union Counties, NJ; Bronx, 
Dutchess, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, 
Rockland, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties, NY; and Pike County, PA, 
comprise the New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA MSA. The New York-
Newark-Jersey City MSA contains parts of the Newburgh and New York FWS 
wage areas. Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, 
Somerset, and Union Counties, NJ, and Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, 
Queens, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties, NY, are part of the New York 
survey area. Hunterdon, Monmouth, Ocean (excluding the Fort Dix 
Military Reservation), and Sussex Counties, NJ; Putnam, Richmond, and 
Rockland Counties, NY; and Pike County, PA, are part of the New York 
area of application. Dutchess and Orange Counties, NY, are part of the 
Newburgh survey area.
    There now appear to be no unusual circumstances for Dutchess and 
Orange Counties to be split from the majority of the counties of the 
New York-Newark-Jersey City MSA. Therefore, OPM proposes to redefine 
Dutchess and Orange Counties to the New York wage area. Because Orange 
County has a large FWS workforce of 800 employees, it would be 
redefined to the New York survey area. With only 39 FWS employees, 
Dutchess County would be redefined to the New York area of application.

Delaware, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties, NY

    With the redefinition of Dutchess and Orange Counties to the New 
York wage area, the Newburgh wage area would no longer be a viable wage 
area and would be abolished. Its remaining constituent counties would 
be redefined to a neighboring wage area.
    In selecting a wage area to which Delaware County should be 
redefined, the distance criterion favors the Albany-Schenectady-Troy 
wage area. The commuting patterns criterion slightly favors the New 
York wage area. The overall population and employment and the kinds and 
sizes of private industrial establishments criterion does not favor one 
wage area more than another. Based on these findings, OPM is proposing 
to redefine Delaware County as an area of application county to the 
Albany-Schenectady-Troy wage area.
    In selecting a wage area to which Sullivan County would be 
redefined, the distance criterion favors the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre wage 
area. The commuting patterns criterion favors the New York wage area. 
The overall population and employment and the kinds and sizes of 
private industrial establishments criterion does not favor one wage 
area more than another. Based on these findings, OPM is proposing to 
redefine Sullivan County as an area of application to the Scranton-
Wilkes-Barre area of application.
    In selecting a wage area to which Ulster County would be redefined, 
the distance criterion favors the Albany-Schenectady-Troy wage area. 
The commuting patterns criterion favors the New York wage area. The 
overall population and employment and the kinds and sizes of private 
industrial establishments criterion does not favor one wage area more 
than another. Based on these findings, OPM is proposing to redefine 
Ulster County as an area of application county to the Albany-
Schenectady-Troy wage area.
    The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee (FPRAC), the 
statutory national labor-management committee responsible for advising 
OPM on matters affecting the pay of FWS employees, recommended these 
changes by consensus. These changes would be effective on the first day 
of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after 30 days 
following publication of the final regulations.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    I certify that these regulations would not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because they 
would affect only Federal agencies and employees.
