DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment Standards Administration Wage and Hour Division; Minimum Wages for Federal and Federally Assisted Construction; General Wage Determination Decisions General wage determination decisions of the Secretary of Labor are issued in accordance with applicable law and are based on the information obtained by the Department of Labor from its study of local wage conditions and data made available from other sources. They specify the basic hourly wage rates and fringe benefits which are determined to be prevailing for the described classes of laborers and mechanics employed on construction projects of a similar character and in the localities specified therein. The determinations in these decisions of prevailing rates and fringe benefits have been made in accordance with 29 CFR Part 1, by authority of the Secretary of Labor pursuant to the provisions of the Davis-Bacon Act of March 3, 1931, as amended (46 Stat. 1494, as amended, 40 U.S.C. 276a) and of other Federal statutes referred to in 29 CFR Part 1, Appendix, as well as such additional

statutes as may from time to time be enacted containing provisions for the payment of wages determined to be prevailing by the Secretary of Labor in accordance with the Davis-Bacon Act. The prevailing rates and fringe benefits determined in these decisions shall, in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing statutes, constitute the minimum wages payable on Federal and federally assisted construction projects to laborers and mechanics of the specified classes engaged on contract work of the character and in the localities described therein. Good cause is hereby found for not utilizing notice and public comment procedure thereon prior to the issuance of these determinations as prescribed in 5 U.S.C. 553 and not providing for delay in the effective date as prescribed in that section, because the necessity to issue current construction industry wage determinations frequently and in large volume causes procedures to be impractical and contrary to the public interest. General wage determination decisions, and modifications and supersedes decisions thereto, contain no expiration dates and are effective from their date of notice in the Federal Register, or on the date written notice is received by the agency, whichever is earlier. These decisions are to be used in accordance with the provisions of 29 CFR Parts 1 and 5. Accordingly, the applicable decision, together with any modifications issued, must be made a part of every contract for performance of the described work within the geographic area indicated as required by an applicable Federal prevailing wage law and 20 CFR Part 5. The wage rates and fringe benefits, notice of which is published herein, and which are contained in the Government Printing Office (GPO) document entitled ‘‘General Wage Determinations Issued Under The Davis-Bacon And Related Acts,’’ shall be the minimum paid by contractors and subcontractors to laborers and mechanics. Any person, organization, or governmental agency having an interest in the rates determined as prevailing is encouraged to submit wage rate and fringe benefit information for consideration by the Department. Further information and selfexplanatory forms for the purpose of submitting this data may be obtained by writing to the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment Standards Administration, Wage and Hour Division, Division of Wage Determinations, 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room S–3014, Washington, D.C. 20210.

The Copyright Office is notifying the public of a change of mailing address for the submission of Notices of Intent to Enforce (NIE) a restored copyright and registration claims in restored works under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA). The number of filings submitted during the first two years of the restoration period necessitated the use of a special post office box, but the number of such filings has dramatically decreased making it unnecessary for the Office to maintain this box. All future NIEs, and GATT registrations should be mailed to the pertinent address specified in this notice. EFFECTIVE DATE: This notice is effective February 22, 1999. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marilyn J. Kretsinger, Assistant General Counsel, Copyright GC/I&R, P.O. Box 70400, Southwest Station, Washington, D.C. 20024. Telephone: (202) 707–8380. Telefax: (202) 707–8366. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Uruguay Round General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA) (Pub. L. No. 103–465; 108 Stat. 4809 (1994)) provide for the restoration of copyright in certain works that were in the public domain in the United States. Copyright protection was restored on January 1, 1996, in certain works by foreign nationals or domiciliaries that had entered the public domain for failure to comply with certain requirements prescribed by U.S. copyright law. See, 17 U.S.C. 104A (1994). A copyright owner of any work meeting the requirements of section 104A may register a copyright claim in the restored work during the life of the copyright. The copyright owner may file
SUMMARY:

a Notice of Intent to Enforce (NIE) the restored copyright in the Copyright Office within two years of eligibility. This NIE serves as constructive notice on any reliance party—anyone who is already using the work or acquired copies of the work before the date of enactment of the URAA. Alternatively, the owner may file actual notice on a reliance party at any time. The URAA also requires the Register of Copyrights to publish lists in the Federal Register identifying a restored work and its owner[s] if an NIE has been filed by a party who is eligible to file. Thus, depending on its receipt of filings by eligible parties the Office may continue periodically to publish lists. During the first two years, because of the large number of expected filings and the special processing they required, the Office established a particular mailing address for the filing of NIEs and registration of copyright claims in GATT restored works. It also created special GATT forms for registration of works and published a format for filing NIEs. The initial two year period for filing with the Office ended, for the overwhelming majority of countries, on December 31, 1997. Consequently, the number of filings has decreased drastically; therefore, the special address is no longer needed. This notice is to inform all interested parties that the current mailing addresses for filing NIEs and GATT registrations, URAA/GATT, NIEs and Registrations, P.O. Box 72400, Southwest Station, Washington, D.C. 20024, USA is no longer effective. The new address for filing NIEs is GC/I&R, P.O. Box 70400, Southwest Station, Washington, D.C. 20024. The new address for GATT registrations is the same as for all other registrations: Library of Congress, Copyright Office, 101 Independence Avenue, S.E., Washington, D.C. 20559–6000.
