SUMMARY: HHS gives notice of a decision to designate a class of

or more other classes of employees in the SEC.

    This designation will become effective on October 29, 2009, unless 
Congress provides otherwise prior to the effective date. After this 
effective date, HHS will publish a notice in the Federal Register 
reporting the addition of this class to the SEC or the result of any 
provision by Congress regarding the decision by HHS to add the class to 
the SEC.
