  • FDIC Amends FOIA Regulations in Accordance with FOIA Improvement Act

    Federal Issues

    The FDIC published a Notice of an Interim Final Rule and Request for Comment in the November 22 edition of the Federal Register. The new rule amends FDIC regulations in accordance with requirements set forth in the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016. The new rule also codifies changes brought about by prior amendments that had already been incorporated into agency practice. To meet the Act’s statutory deadline, the interim rule was adopted without prior notice and comment and became effective immediately upon publication on November 22. Comments on the interim rule are due on January 23, 2017, after which the FDIC will remove the interim designation.
