The United States Commission on Civil Rights (Commission) is repealing its old employee conduct regulations, which have been superseded by the executive branch Standards of Ethical Conduct, financial disclosure and financial interests regulations issued by the Office of Government Ethics (OGE). In place of its old regulations, the Commission is adding a section of residual cross-references to those branchwide regulations as well as its new supplemental standards regulations and certain executive branchwide conduct rules promulgated by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The text of the rule was published in the Federal Register on August 30, 2006 at 71 FR 51546 as a proposed rule and provided that comments should have been received by September 29, 2006 to be considered in the formulation of the final rule. No comments were received.
