specific State and Federal agencies to receive NDNH information for

all newly-hired employees to the State Directory of New Hires (SDNH);
    (2) 42 U.S.C. 653A(g)(2)(A), requiring every SDNH to transmit the 
new hire information to the NDNH within three business days of the data 
being entered in the SDNH;
    (3) 26 U.S.C. 3304(a)(16)(B), requiring the reporting of wage and 
unemployment compensation information contained in the records of 
agencies administering the State program under part A of Title IV of 
the Social Security Act; and
    (4) Requiring the quarterly reporting of wages and other 
compensation under--
     42 U.S.C. 653A(g)(2)(B), by every SDNH; and
