Negotiated Rulemaking Committee; Public Hearings

AGENCY: Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.

ACTION: Intent to establish negotiated rulemaking committees.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We announce our intention to establish two negotiated 
rulemaking committees to prepare proposed regulations for the Federal 
Student Aid programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education 
Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). The committees 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 comment on the topics suggested by the Department and may 
suggest additional topics that should be considered for action by the 
negotiating committees. In addition, we announce that the Department 
will accept written comments on the topics suggested by the Department 
and suggestions for additional topics that should be considered for 
action by the negotiating committees.

DATES: The dates, times, and locations of the public hearings are 
listed under the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this 
document. We must receive written comments on the topics suggested by the
Department and additional topics that should be considered for action by the 
negotiating committees on or before July 12, 2017.
