The Administrative Conference of the United States published a final rule implementing new FOIA regulations in today's issue of the Federal Register. These revisions are required to comply with the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016. The agency did not previously solicit public comment, but it intends to withdraw the rule for further modification if "significant adverse comment is received by February 22, 2017."  The rule is otherwise effective on March 14, 2017.
