FOIA News (2015-16)Ryan MulveyComment

In today's issue of the Federal Register, the National Council on Disability published a final rule amending its FOIA regulations in order to comply with the statutory mandates enacted by the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016.  The agency issued the rule "so as to include comments which were submitted for [its] existing FOIA regulations.  But due to issues beyond [the agency's] control, [it] did not receive the comments until after publication of the final rule."  The new regulations are effective immediately.
