Notice of establishment of negotiated rulemaking committees.
We announce our intention to establish five negotiated rulemaking committees to prepare proposed regulations under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). Each committee will include representatives of organizations or groups with interests that are significantly affected by the subject matter of the proposed regulations. We request nominations for individual negotiators who represent key stakeholder constituencies that are involved in the student financial assistance and grant programs authorized under Title IV of the HEA to serve on these committees.
We must receive your nominations for negotiators to serve on the committees on or before January 23, 2009.
Please send your nominations for negotiators to Patty Chase, U.S. Department of Education, 1990 K Street, NW., room 8034, Washington, DC 20006, or by fax at (202) 502-7874. You may also e-mail your nominations to Patty.Chase@ed.gov. Nominees will be notified by letter whether or not they have been selected as negotiators, as soon as the Department's review process is completed.
