See 70 FR 4743. It has come to the attention of the Department and EOIR that the Internet options for submitting e-mail comments to the interim rule during the original 60-day comment period originally provided with publication of the interim rule did not consistently function. Commenters seeking to submit e-mail comments via http:// www.regulations.gov received an automatic message instructing the commenter to print out and submit written comments. Further, in several cases, comments e-mailed directly to EOIR at eoir.regs@usdoj.gov resulted in ‘‘undeliverable’’ return receipts being sent to the comment sender. EOIR has now resolved this technical problem with its regulations comment e-mail box. Despite these difficulties with the electronic comment filing options, the ability to submit written comments to EOIR throughout this period of time via the United States mail was unaffected. However, to ensure that the public has been provided an adequate opportunity to comment on the interim rule, EOIR is extending the public comment period by 30 days. The extension of the public comment period does not affect the effective date of the interim rule, which remains April 1, 2005. Commenters who submitted comments electronically prior to April 1, 2005, are encouraged to resubmit comments electronically or by mail. Accordingly, EOIR is extending the comment period and will accept public comments until May 2, 2005. I Dated: March 28, 2005. Kevin D. Rooney, Director, Executive Office for Immigration Review.
