Designation of a Class of Employees for Addition to the Special 
Exposure Cohort

AGENCY: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH),

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: HHS gives notice of a decision to designate a class of 
employees from the Grand Junction Operations Office in Grand Junction, 
Colorado, as an addition to the Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) under the 
Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. 
On April 29, 2011, 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 
Grand Junction Operations Office from March 23, 1943 through January 
31, 1975, 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 will become effective on May 29, 2011, 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.
