Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

[[Page 38422]]




PENSION BENEFIT GUARANTY CORPORATION

29 CFR Ch. XL

Agenda of Regulations Under Development

AGENCY: Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC).

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: This document sets forth the Pension Benefit Guaranty 
Corporation's regulatory agenda issued under Executive Order 12866 and 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The agenda lists regulations that are 
currently under development or review or that PBGC expects to have 
under development or review during the next 12 months. The effect of 
this agenda is to advise the public of PBGC's current and future 
regulatory activities.

ADDRESSES: Office of the General Counsel, Pension Benefit Guaranty 
Corporation, 1200 K Street NW., Washington, DC 20005-4026.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information on the agenda 
in general, contact Harold J. Ashner, Assistant General Counsel, Office 
of the General Counsel, (202) 326-4024. (For TTY/TDD users, call the 
Federal relay service toll-free at 1-800-877-8339 and ask to be 
connected to (202) 326-4024.) For information about a specific 
regulation project listed on the agenda, contact the person designated 
in the agenda for that regulation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the President's order on Regulatory 
Planning and Review, Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 
1993), each agency is required to prepare an agenda of all regulations 
under development or review. The Regulatory Flexibility Act, Public Law 
98-354, 5 U.S.C. 601, has a similar agenda requirement. Under that law, 
the agenda must list any regulation that is likely to have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

     The Office of Management and Budget has issued guidelines 
prescribing the form and content of the regulatory agenda. Under 
those guidelines, the agenda must list all regulatory activities 
being conducted or reviewed in the next 12 months and provide 
certain specified information on each regulation.

Dated: May 14, 2004.

 Bradley D. Belt,

Executive Director, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
