Prior to convening the 63rd Plenary Session of the Administrative Conference of the United States, an ad hoc Committee on Issue Exhaustion, comprising all voting and non-voting members of the Conference, will meet to consider and debate a proposed statement on "Issue Exhaustion in Preenforcement Judicial Review of Administrative Rulemaking." All members of the Conference (i.e., Public, Government, Liaison Representatives, Special Counsels and Senior Fellows) may participate and vote during this ad hoc committee meeting, regardless of their regular committee assignments. The committee meeting will be chaired by Ron Levin (who normally chairs the Committee on Judicial Review). The Conference previously considered a proposed recommendation on the Issue Exhaustion project during the 62nd Plenary Session, held on June 4, 2015. All documents, meeting agendas, and videos related to this project through June 2015 can be found on the Judicial Review project page and on the 62nd Plenary Session page. The proposed recommendation has since been modified as a statement to account for concerns that were raised during the 62nd Plenary Session.
