Negotiated Rulemaking Committee; Public Hearings

AGENCY: Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.

ACTION: Intent to establish negotiated rulemaking committee.

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

SUMMARY: We announce 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 (HEA) (title IV, HEA programs). We also announce our 
intention to create two subcommittees for this committee. In addition, 
we announce three 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 committee. We will also accept written comments on the 
topics suggested by the Department and suggestions for additional 
topics that should be considered for action by the negotiating 
committee. The Department will present negotiators with proposed 
regulatory language at the first negotiating session.

DATES: The dates, times, and locations for the public hearings are 
listed under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. We must receive written 
comments on the topics suggested by the Department and additional 
topics that should be considered for action by the negotiating
