Document Number: 2016-07883
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-07
Agency: Department of Labor, Office of Labor-Management Standards
The Office of Labor-Management Standards of the Department of Labor (``Department'') published a final rule on March 24, 2016.

The revised interpretation provides employees with important information that would enable them to consider the source of the information about union representation directed at them when assessing the merits of the arguments and deciding how to exercise their rights. The Department has also revised the forms and instructions to make them more user-friendly and to require more detailed reporting on employer and consultant agreements. Additionally, with this rule, the Department requires that Forms LM-10 and LM-20 be filed electronically. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), the Department of Labor announces that the Office of Management and Budget has approved the information collection requirements contained in the final rule.
Energy Conservation Program: Data Collection and Comparison With Forecasted Unit Sales of Five Lamp Types
Document Number: 2016-07873
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-07
Agency: Department of Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is informing the public of its collection of shipment data and creation of spreadsheet models to provide comparisons between actual and benchmark estimate unit sales of five lamp types (i.e., rough service lamps, vibration service lamps, 3- way incandescent lamps, 2,601-3,300 lumen general service incandescent lamps, and shatter-resistant lamps) that are currently not subject to energy conservation standards. As the actual sales are not greater than 200 percent of the forecasted estimate for 2015 (i.e., the threshold triggering a rulemaking for an energy conservation standard) for rough service lamps, 3-way incandescent lamps, 2,601-3,300 lumen general service incandescent lamps, and shatter-resistant lamps, DOE has determined that no regulatory action pertaining to such lamps is necessary at this time. However, DOE will continue to track sales data for these exempted lamps. As discussed in the results under section IV of this document, the actual unit sales for vibration service lamps are 272.5 percent of the benchmark unit sales estimate. Therefore, an accelerated energy conservation standard rulemaking for vibration service lamps must be completed by December 31, 2016. Relating to this activity, DOE has prepared, and is making available on its Web site, a spreadsheet showing the comparisons of anticipated versus actual sales, as well as the model used to generate the original sales estimates.
