solely under this employment or in combination with work days within 
the parameters established for one or more other classes of 
employees included in the SEC.

This designation will become effective on February 15, 2009, unless 
Congress provides otherwise prior to the effective date. After this 
effective date, HHS will publish a notice in the Federal Register
