The Committee on Regulation will consider a project on the Public Availability of Agency Guidance. The meetings will take place April 4 at 1:00 pm and April 23 at 1:00 pm.

The Committee on Judicial Review will consider a project on the Agency Guidance Through Interpretive Rules. The meetings will take place April 1 at 11:00 am and April 18 at 10:30 am.

A Joint Committee including members of the Committees on Adjudication and Administration and Management will consider a project on the Selection of Administrative Law Judges after Executive Order 13843. The meetings will take place April 5 at 10:00 am, April 26 at 11:00 am, and May 3 at 11:00 am.

In addition, an ad hoc committee that includes all interested Conference members will reexamine the Model Rules for Implementation of the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA). We first published the Model Rules in 1981, and released revised rules in 1986. The meetings will take place April 10 at 11:00 am and April 30 at 1:00 pm. ACUS announced Tuesday that it will begin work to carry out its new statutory responsibility to report and maintain a database on attorneys’ fees awards under EAJA.
