SUMMARY: HHS gives notice concerning the final effect of the decision 
to designate a class of employees from the Nevada Test Site as an 
addition to the Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) under the Energy 
Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. On 
April 5, 2010, as provided for under 42 U.S.C. 7384q(b), the Secretary 
of HHS designated the following class of employees as an addition to 
the SEC:

    All employees of the Department of Energy, its predecessor 
agencies, and its contractors and subcontractors who worked at the 
Nevada Test Site, from January 1, 1963 through December 31, 1992, 
for a number of work days aggregating at least 250 work days, 
occurring either solely under this employment or in combination with 
work days within the parameters established for one or more other 
classes of employees in the SEC.

    This designation became effective on May 5, 2010, as provided for 
under 42 U.S.C. 7384l(14)(C). Hence, beginning on May 5, 2010, members 
of this class of employees, defined as reported in this notice, became 
members of the Special Exposure Cohort.
