“Negotiated Rulemaking Committee; Public Hearings
This document has a comment period that ends in 62 days (11/04/2014)
We announce our intention to establish a negotiated rulemaking committee to prepare proposed regulations governing the Federal William D. Ford Direct Loan (Federal Direct Loan) Program authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). The committee will include representatives of organizations or groups with interests that are significantly affected by the subject matter of the proposed regulations.
We also announce two public hearings at which interested parties may suggest additional issues that should be considered for action by the negotiating committee. In addition, we announce that the Department will accept written comments regarding additional issues that should be considered for action by the negotiating committee.
We will hold two public hearings for interested parties to discuss the rulemaking agenda.
The public hearings will be held:
*October 23, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. local time, at the U.S. Department of Education, 1990 K Street NW., Eighth Floor Conference Center, Washington, DC 20006.
*November 4, 2014, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. local time, at the Marriott Anaheim, 700 West Convention Way, Grand Ballroom E, Anaheim, CA 92802.
Individuals who would like to present comments at the public hearings must register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email should include the name of the presenter along with the public hearing at which the individual would like to speak, and a general time frame during which the individual would like to speak.”
This is where student unions, fraternities, and sororities should be well represented.
There should not be a negotiating committee without student representation from every college effected by the results of regulations that will direct “issues that should be considered for action. . .”
America’s public schools should be growing civic leaders from every cultural group. By supporting respectful, honest leadership in elementary school, through college and into local, state, and federal elected positions we guarantee a strong, united America.
Empowering the voice of the people begins with empowering the voice of our children to positively articulate their beliefs and the concerns of those they represent.
