burden to filers.
    On January 15, 2020, OGE published a final rule making inflationary 
adjustments to the Ethics in Government Act civil monetary penalties in 
accordance with the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act 
Improvements Act of 2015. Pursuant to these changes, the penalty for 
misuse of public reports is now $20,489. Accordingly, OGE proposes to 
update the penalty amount stated on the Form 201, in the paragraph 
above the applicant's signature. This change will have no material 
effect on the burden to filers.
    On November 25, 2019, OGE published a first round notice of its 
intent to request approval for the modified OGE Form 201, Request to 
Inspect or Receive Copies of Executive Branch Personnel Public
