Negotiated Rulemaking Committee; Public Hearings; Correction


Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.


Intent to establish negotiated rulemaking committee; correction.


In May 2012, we announced our intention to establish a negotiated rulemaking committee to prepare proposed regulations for the Federal Student Aid programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. On April 16, 2013, we published in the Federal Register a notice announcing additional topics for consideration by that committee. We announced three public hearings at which interested parties may comment. We also announced that for anyone unable to attend a public hearing, we would accept written comments. This document corrects the inconsistent docket numbers we provided for commenters in the April 16 document. The correct docket number is ED-2012-OPE-0008.


Effective April 30, 2013.

Supplementary Information


In the Federal Register of April 16, 2013 (78 FR 22467), on page 22467, in the first column, in the headings for the notice, we correct the docket number to read: “[Docket ID ED-2012-OPE-0008]”

The docket number for the notice is correctly stated as “ED-2012-OPE-0008” on page 22467 in the third column of the notice. However, in the heading in the first column on page 22467, the docket number is incorrectly stated as “ED-2013-OPE-0008,” rather than the correct “ED-2012-OPE-0008.” We are correcting that error.
