Rules of Procedure; Extension of Comment Period
AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.
ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking; extension of time for comments.
SUMMARY: This document extends the time for filing comments to the Commission's proposed revision of its settlement rules to April 30, 1998. The proposed rule was published in the Federal Register on March 2, 1998.
DATES: Comments to the Commission's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published at 63 FR 10166 should be received by April 30, 1998.
ADDRESSES: Comments to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking should be sent to Earl R. Ohman, Jr., General Counsel, Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, 1120 20th Street, NW, 9th Floor, Washington, DC 20036-3419.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 2, 1998, the Commission published in the Federal Register, 63 FR 10166, a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend the Commission's rule on settlements, 29 CFR 2200.109. In that notice, the Commission announced that all comments must be received by April 16, 1998. On April 9, the Commission received from the Office of the Solicitor of the Department of Labor, a request to extend the comment period an additional 14 days.
In his request, the Solicitor pointed out that the deadline for comments came during the Passover/Easter holiday season. It is the Commission's view that the public interest is best served by allowing all interested parties adequate time to prepare their comments to the proposal, particularly inasmuch as the Commission is unable to act on the proposal until it regains a quorum. Accordingly, the Commission extends the comment period for all interested parties until April 30, 1998.
Dated: April 13, 1998.
Earl R. Ohman, Jr.,
