Semiannual Agenda of Regulations

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Labor.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: This document sets forth the Department's semiannual agenda of 
regulations that have been selected for review or development during 
the coming year. The Department's agencies have carefully assessed 
their available resources and what they can accomplish in the next 
twelve months and have adjusted their agendas accordingly.

     The agenda complies with the requirements of both Executive 
Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The agenda lists 
all regulations that are expected to be under review or development 
between November 2004 and November 2005, as well as those completed 
during the past six months.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathleen Franks, Director for the 
Office of Regulatory Policy, Office of the Assistant Secretary for 
Policy, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room S-
2312, Washington, DC 20210, (202) 693-5959.

Note: Information pertaining to a specific regulation can be obtained 
from the agency contact listed for that particular regulation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 12866 and the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act require the semiannual publication in the Federal 
Register of an agenda of regulations. As permitted by law, the 
Department of Labor is combining the publication of its agendas under 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order 12866.

     Executive Order 12866 became effective September 30, 1993, 
and, in substance, requires the Department of Labor to publish an 
agenda listing all the regulations it expects to have under active 
consideration for promulgation, proposal, or review during the 
coming 1-year period. The focus of all departmental regulatory 
activity will be on the development of effective rules that advance 
the Department's goals and that are understandable and usable to 
the employers and employees in all affected workplaces.

     The Regulatory Flexibility Act became effective on January 1, 
1981, and applies only to regulations for which a notice of 
proposed rulemaking was issued on or after that date. It requires 
the Department of Labor to publish an agenda, listing all the 
regulations it expects to propose or promulgate that are likely to 
have a ``significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities'' (5 U.S.C. 602).

     The Regulatory Flexibility Act (under section 610) also 
requires agencies to periodically review rules ``which have or will 
have a significant economic impact upon a substantial number of 
small entities'' and to annually publish a list of the rules that 
will be reviewed during the succeeding 12 months. The purpose of 
the review is to determine whether the rule should be continued 
without change, amended, or rescinded.

     The next 12-month review list for the Department of Labor is 
provided below and public comment is invited on the listing. A 
brief description of each rule, the legal basis for the rule, and 
the agency contact are provided with each agenda item.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration

     Occupational Exposure to Ethylene Oxide (RIN 1218-AB60)

     Excavations (RIN 1218-AC02)

     Lead in Construction (RIN 1218-AC18)

Employee Benefits Security Administration

     Prohibited Transaction Exemption Procedures (RIN 1210-AA98)

     Statutory Exemption for Loans to Plan Participants (RIN 1210-
AA99)

    OSHA's Presence Sensing Device Initiation of Mechanical Power 
Presses was completed in June 2004.

     All interested members of the public are invited and 
encouraged to let departmental officials know how our regulatory 
efforts can be improved, and, of course, to participate in and 
comment on the review or development of the regulations listed on 
the agenda.

 Elaine L. Chao,

Secretary of Labor.
