Earlier this evening the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs within the Office of Management and Budget posted “The 2022 Spring Agenda”. As stated on the website’s descript of the Agenda, “The Biden Administration’s Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions (Agenda) reports on the actions administrative agencies plan to issue in the near and long term. Released by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, the Agenda provides important public notice and transparency about proposed regulatory and deregulatory actions within the Executive Branch.”
What is important about this posting is that it provides a comprehensive update on where all of the regulatory agencies are in the development of rules related to the agency. As noted in today’s Agency Rule List for the Department of Education, the Administration has clearly stated that five of the 2021-2022 Federal Negotiate Rulemaking issues will not be completed this year. The list includes:
- Gainful Employment
- Factors of Financial Responsibility
- Standards of Administrative Capability
- Certification Procedures
Based upon confirmed statements from Department officials, this means that these five sets of regulations will not be completed by November 1st of this year, and therefore will not be eligible for implementation July 1st of next year under the Master Calendar statutory requirements of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. Put another way, none of the five packages will become effective until July 1, 2024 at the earliest.
You can review the Education list in its entirety at:
CSPEN has developed a more specific list of the topics below.
With the publication of the Agenda, and the announcement that this means that the five issues are now a 2023 proposition, it suggests that the only issues which the Department intends to complete from the list of sixteen issues are those that were include in the April 22nd and June 8th submissions that the Department has already submitted to OMB/OIRA.
CSPEN will be providing the community with even more details on this coming Thursday’s webinar – where we will summarize our meeting with OMB/OIRA and Department officials on the April 22nd package, talking more about the June 8th package, and reaffirming this unbelievable – but verified – new breaking news!
