Semiannual Regulatory Agenda, April 1994

AGENCY: Office of Government Ethics.

ACTION: Semiannual agenda of substantive regulations.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The following Office of Government Ethics (OGE) substantive 
regulations are scheduled for development or review during the period 
from April 1, 1994, through March 31, 1995. This agenda fulfills OGE's 
responsibility to publish a semiannual regulatory agenda under 
Executive Order 12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review'' and has been 
prepared in accordance with guidance received from the Office of 
Management and Budget. None of the OGE regulations in this April 1994 
agenda will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number 
of small entities as defined under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 
U.S.C. chapter 6. In addition, none of the listed OGE regulatory 
actions are procurement-related. Since E.O. 12866 is so recent, most of 
OGE's responses thereunder, as indicated in this agenda, are 
``undetermined'' because a decision has not yet been reached with the 
Office of Management and Budget as to their status. Furthermore, the 
organizational and procedural rules of OGE are not listed herein.

    This publication in the Federal Register does not impose a 
binding obligation on the Office of Government Ethics with respect 
to any particular item on its agenda. The dates shown for the 
future steps of each action are estimates and not commitments to 
act by the date shown. Moreover, other substantive OGE regulatory 
actions, in addition to the entries listed, are not precluded.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William E. Gressman, Office of 
Government Ethics, Suite 500, 1201 New York Avenue NW., Washington, DC 
20005-3917; telephone: (202) 523-5757, extension 1110; FAX: (202) 523-

Approved: March 3, 1994.

Director, Office of Government Ethics.

208 (ACTS AFFECTING A PERSONAL FINANCIAL INTEREST)

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined

Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Proposed regulation will interpret section 208(a) of title 
18, U.S.C., which prohibits officers and employees of the executive 
branch from officially participating personally and substantially in a 
particular matter in which there is a personal financial interest or a 
financial interest of a related person or organization (absent a waiver 
under 18 U.S.C. 208(b)). It will also list and describe interests which 
are considered to be too remote or too inconsequential to affect the 
integrity of the services of executive branch officers or employees, in 
accordance with 18 U.S.C. 208(b)(2). Such interests will be exempt from 
the restrictions of 18 U.S.C. 208(a), generally requiring 
disqualification. The proposed regulation will also provide guidance to 
executive branch agencies as to the kinds of interests that are not so 
substantial as to be deemed likely to affect the integrity of the 
services the Government may expect from an employee and which, 
therefore, may be waived from the general rule of disqualification 
under 18 U.S.C. 208(a) pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 208(b)(1). In addition, 
guidance will be (cont)
