Title 24 published on 20-Apr-2017 03:34
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 24 CFR Part 15 after this date.
On January 12, 2017, HUD issued a final rule amending HUD's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regulation to implement the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, which enacted a range of procedural changes, including a change to the procedures for withholding information and an amendment to one of the nine FOIA exemptions that authorizes an agency to withhold various records from disclosure. After publication, HUD discovered that a portion of the regulation was not published as intended. Specifically, the published rule deleted several of the nine statutory FOIA disclosure exemptions and duplicated another. HUD also noticed minor technical changes required elsewhere in its regulations. This document corrects HUD's January 12, 2017, final rule and makes the minor technical changes.
This final rule amends HUD's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regulation to implement the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016. The FOIA Improvement Act enacted a range of procedural issues, including requirements that agencies establish a minimum of 90 days for requesters to file an administrative appeal, and codifies the foreseeable harm standard. In addition, this final rule revises a section of HUD's FOIA regulations to more accurately reflect statutory language.
This final rule amends HUD's regulations implementing the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to update and streamline HUD's current FOIA regulation. Specifically, it updates HUD's regulations to reflect statutory changes to the FOIA, current HUD organizational structure, and current HUD policies and practices with respect to the FOIA. In addition, the rule uses current cost figures in calculating and charging fees. This final rule also incorporates changes made upon further evaluation of HUD's FOIA Regulation and in response to public comments received.
This proposed rule would amend HUD's regulations implementing the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). HUD is proposing these amendments to update and streamline HUD's current FOIA regulation. This proposed rule would update HUD's regulations to reflect statutory changes to FOIA, current HUD organizational structure, and current HUD policies and practices with respect to FOIA. Finally, the rule would use current cost figures in calculating and charging fees.
