Nonforeign Area Cost-of-Living Allowances; 2006 Interim Adjustments
Document Number: 07-4491
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-09-12
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
This notice publishes the 2006 interim adjustments for the Pacific and Caribbean Nonforeign Area Cost-of-Living Allowance (COLA) areas. The Federal Government conducts COLA surveys in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands to set COLA rates. These surveys are conducted once every 3 years on a rotating basis. In between COLA surveys, the Government adjusts COLA rates for the areas not surveyed using the relative change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the COLA area compared with the Washington-Baltimore CPI. The Pacific and Caribbean COLA areas were not surveyed in 2006. Therefore, OPM is calculating and publishing interim adjustments for these COLA areas. This notice also publishes a revised listing of the 2005 estimated Washington, DC, area middle income annual consumer expenditure data.

Testimony by TVA Employees, Production of Official Records, and Disclosure of Official Information in Legal Proceedings
Document Number: E7-17722
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-09-10
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
The Tennessee Valley Authority (``TVA'') seeks public comment on a proposed rule that would govern access to TVA information and records in connection with legal proceedings in which neither the United States nor TVA is a party. The rule, tracking similar regulations issued by many other federal agencies, would establish guidelines for use in determining whether TVA employees will provide testimony or records relating to their official duties. The rule would also establish procedures for requesters to follow when making demands on or requests to a TVA employee for official documents or to provide testimony. The proposed rule will standardize TVA's past practices, promote uniformity in decisions, conserve the ability of TVA to conduct official business, preserve its employee resources, protect confidential information, provide guidance to requestors, minimize involvement in matters unrelated to TVA's mission and programs, avoid wasteful allocation of agency resources, and avoid spending public time and money for private purpose.

Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commission adopts an Eighth Further Notice of Proposed Rule Making (Eighth Further NPRM), to announce tentative channel designations (TCDs) for three new permittees that have recently attained permittee status. The Eighth Further NPRM identifies these permittees together with the channel we propose to assign the permittee and the specific technical facilities at which we propose to allow these stations to operate after the DTV transition. In addition, the Eighth Further NPRM identifies a number of proposals for revisions to the proposed DTV Table of Allotments and/or Appendix B reflected in the Seventh Report and Order that was adopted simultaneously with this Eighth Further NPRM. These proposed revisions were advanced by commenters in either reply comments or late-filed comments in response to the Seventh Further NPRM. As these comments propose changes to the DTV Table of Allotments and/or Appendix B as in the Seventh Report and Order that could affect other stations that may not have had adequate notice of these proposals, we identify these proposals to give affected stations an opportunity to comment.
