SUMMARY: On June 12, 2013, we announced our intention to establish a 
negotiated rulemaking committee to prepare proposed regulations to 
establish standards for programs that prepare students for gainful 
employment in a recognized occupation. We also announced the schedule 
for committee meetings. Because of the Federal Government shutdown due 
to a lapse in appropriations, we are rescheduling the second session of 
committee meetings to November 18-20, 2013. In addition, the last day 
of the second session will end at 5:00 p.m. instead of at noon.
 
DATES: The dates, times, and locations of the committee meetings are 
set out in the Schedule for Negotiations section under SUPPLEMENTARY 
INFORMATION, below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 12, 2013, we published a notice in 
the Federal Register (78 FR 35179) announcing 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 
Federal Student Aid programs) that would establish standards for 
programs that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized 
occupation. In that notice, we set a schedule for the committee 
meetings and requested nominations for individual negotiators who 
represent key stakeholder constituencies for the issue to be negotiated 
to serve on the committee.
    Because of the shutdown of the Federal Government due to the recent 
lapse in appropriations for fiscal year 2014, we announce that we are 
rescheduling the second session of committee meetings from October 21-
23, 2013 to November 18-20, 2013.
    In addition, we announce that the meeting on the final day, 
November 20, 2013, will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., rather than 
from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The revised schedule for the second 
session follows.
    Schedule for Negotiations: The committee will meet for its second 
and final session on November 18-20, 2013. The session will run from 
9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.
    The meetings will be held at the U.S. Department of Education at: 
1990 K Street NW., Eighth Floor Conference Center, Washington, DC 
20006.
