Peace Corps.

ACTION:

Semiannual regulatory agenda.

SUMMARY:

This agenda announces the regulations the Peace Corps will have under development during the 6-month period from April 1, 2002, through September 30, 2002. The purpose of publishing this agenda is to give notice of any regulatory activity by the Agency in order to allow the public an opportunity to participate in the rulemaking process.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

The public is encouraged to contact the agency official listed for the particular agenda item. For other information concerning Peace Corps' regulations or this semiannual agenda, contact Suzanne B. Glasow, Associate General Counsel, Peace Corps, 1111 20th Street NW., Washington, DC 20526, (202) 692-2150.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with Executive Order 12866 entitled "Regulatory Planning and Review" and the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, executive agencies are required to publish in the Federal Register semiannual regulatory agendas in April and October of each year. The regulations being considered by the Peace Corps are not "significant" rules within the meaning of Executive Order 12866, and no regulatory impact analysis is required. In addition, the Peace Corps has determined, under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, that the regulations under consideration will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Accordingly, no Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is required. The Agency has also determined that the regulations will not impose compliance costs or reporting burdens on the public.

The rule's drug-free workplace provisions would be moved to a new rule, part 312, and would include requirements, prohibitions, and procedures regarding the unlawful manufacturing, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of a controlled substance by a grantee of the Peace Corps in conducting any activity under a Peace Corps grant.

Kerry reaches out to Returned Volunteers Kerry reaches out to Returned Volunteers
The Kerry campaign wants the RPCV vote. Read our interview with Dave Magnani, Massachusetts State Senator and Founder of "RPCVs for Kerry," and his answers to our questions about Kerry's plan to triple the size of the Peace Corps, should the next PC Director be an RPCV, and Safety and Security issues. Then read the "RPCVs for Kerry" statement of support and statements by Dr. Robert Pastor, Ambassador Parker Borg, and Paul Oostburg Sanz made at the "RPCVs for Kerry" Press Conference.

RPCV Carl Pope says the key to winning this election is not swaying undecided voters, but persuading those already willing to vote for your candidate to actually go to the polls.

Take our poll and tell us what you are doing to support your candidate.

Finally read our wrap-up of the eight RPCVs in Senate and House races around the country and where the candidates are in their races.

Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention
Governor Schwarzenegger praised the Peace Corps at the Republican National Convention: "We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children." Schwarzenegger has previously acknowledged his debt to his father-in-law, Peace Corps Founding Director Sargent Shriver, for teaching him "the joy of public service" and Arnold is encouraging volunteerism by creating California Service Corps and tapping his wife, Maria Shriver, to lead it.

Teresa Heinz Kerry celebrates the Peace Corps Volunteer as one of the best faces America has ever projected in a speech to the Democratic Convention.
