Date: 2017-03-14
Agency: Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia, Agencies and Commissions
This interim final rule updates and clarifies the procedures for submitting Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests as required under the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016 (the 2016 Act) which was signed into law by the President on June 30, 2016. This rule makes the procedural changes necessitated by the 2016 Act, including requirements that agencies provide a minimum of 90 days for requesters to file an administrative appeal and that agencies provide dispute resolution services during the FOIA process. The 2016 Act also adds two new elements to agency Annual FOIA Reports. The rule codifies the ``foreseeable harm'' standard implemented by the 2016 Act. The principal changes that were required to the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia's (``CSOSA'') current regulations are discussed below. Congress mandated that agencies make changes to their regulations within 180 days of the law taking effect. Because the changes are mandated by Congress and are non-controversial, CSOSA is publishing this rule as an interim final rule.
