Kellex/Pierpont facility in Jersey City, New Jersey, from January 1, 
1943, through December 31, 1953, 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 Special Exposure Cohort.

    This designation will become effective on June 29, 2008, 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.
