Document Number: 06-6122
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-11
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Farm Service Agency, Rural Business-Cooperative Service, Rural Housing Service, Rural Utilities Service
This rule clarifies the regulations governing employee conflicts of interest for the successor agencies of the former Farmers Home Administration (FmHA), which was reorganized by the Department of Agriculture Reorganization Act of 1994 (Pub. L. 103-354) into the Farm Service Agency (FSA), Rural Business-Cooperative Service, Rural Housing Service and Rural Utilities Service. Since the reorganization, FSA revised its regulations to streamline them and separate them from the other successor agencies. FSA's regulations regarding employee conflicts of interest are now found in regulations published by the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) in 5 CFR part 2635 and regulations published jointly by OGE and FSA in 5 CFR part 8301. To avoid confusion regarding applicability of the regulations, this rule amends 7 CFR part 1900, subpart D to provide specifically that they do not apply to FSA.
