SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:ON JANUARY 12, 2016, AS PART OF THE COMMISSION’S SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF ITS RULES AND GUIDES, THE FTC PUBLISHED A NOTICE IN THE Federal Register (‘‘FRN’’) REQUESTING PUBLIC COMMENTS ON PROPOSED REVISIONS TO THE GUIDES FOR THE JEWELRY, PRECIOUS METALS, AND PEWTER INDUSTRIES (‘‘JEWELRY GUIDES’’ OR ‘‘GUIDES’’).1 AS SET FORTH IN THE FRN, THE COMMISSION PROPOSED SEVERAL CHANGES AND ADDITIONS DESIGNED TO HELP PREVENT DECEPTION IN JEWELRY MARKETING. THE FRN INVITED COMMENTS ON THE PROPOSED REVISIONS GENERALLY, AND ALSO POSED A SERIES OF 75 QUESTIONS ON SPECIFIC ISSUES. THE FRN SET APRIL 4, 2016 AS THE DEADLINE FOR FILING COMMENTS. A trade association representing jewelry industry members, Jewelers Vigilance Committee (‘‘JVC’’), requests a 60-day extension of the comment deadline. JVC explains that the FRN poses many questions that may require consumer research, metallurgical testing, and other information developed through experts. JVC states that additional time is therefore needed for the committees it has convened to coordinate their work, perform the necessary analysis, and develop meaningful consumer research and other expert information. Given the complexity and range of issues raised in the FRN, including the request for consumer perception evidence, the Commission believes that allowing additional time for filing comments would help facilitate the creation of a more complete record. Moreover, this brief extension would not harm consumers because the current Guides remain in effect during the review process. Therefore, the Commission has decided to extend the comment period to June 3, 2016. You can file a comment online or on paper. For the Commission to consider your comment, we must receive it on or before June 3, 2016. Write ‘‘Jewelry Guides, 16 CFR part 23, Project No. G711001’’ on your comment.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: DOD is establishing policies based on section 539 of Public Law 111– 84 to implement the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children (referred to as the ‘‘Compact’’) within the DoD. The proposed rule provides components with policies to support the intent of the Compact, which is to aid the transition of schoolage children in military families between school districts (to include between Department of Defense Educational Activity schools and state school districts). Each state joining the compact agrees to address specific school transition issues in a consistent mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:20 Mar 04, 2016 Jkt 238001 I. Purpose of This Rulemaking This proposed rule provides components of the DoD with policies to support the intent of the Compact, which is to aid the transition of schoolage children in military families between school districts. The intent of the program is to ensure children are enrolled immediately in their new school, placed in the appropriate academic program, and are able to graduate on time. Each state joining the compact agrees to address specific school transition issues in a consistent way and minimize school disruptions for military children transferring from one state school system to another. The compact consists of general policies in four key areas: Eligibility, enrollment, placement and graduation. As of August 2014, 50 states have passed legislation to become members PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 of the compact, including most of those with large numbers of military residents. The Department of Defense Education Activity cannot be a member of the compact but is complying with its provisions in both overseas and domestic schools. In return, the compact member states have agreed to treat students coming from a DoDEA school as though they were transferring from a member state. The compact has provisions for member states to facilitate enrollment in the following areas: Enrollment • Education records. When a family leaves a school district in a member state, the parents may receive a set of unofficial records to carry to the new school in another member state. It will include all the information the new school needs to enroll and place the child until they receive the official records. In addition, the compact requires all sending school districts within member states to send official transcripts within 10 days of a request from the receiving state school district. • Immunizations. If a child transferring to a member state needs additional immunizations, he or she may enroll and begin school. Parents then have 30 days to see that the child gets the required immunizations. If further immunizations are required, they must be started within 30 calendar days of enrollment. Tuberculosis testing is not covered under the compact since the TB test is not an immunization but rather a health screening. • Kindergarten and first grade entrance age. If the entrance age requirement in the new school system is different, transitioning children may continue in the same grade if they have already started kindergarten or first grade where the family was previously stationed. This provision also allows children to move up to first or second grade, regardless of age requirements, if they have completed kindergarten or first grade in another state. Placement and Attendance Students from military families often miss appropriate placement in required classes, advanced placement and special-needs programs while awaiting evaluation at the new school. The compact requires cooperation in the following areas: • Course and education program placement. A receiving school district in a member state must initially honor placement of a student based on his or her enrollment in the sending state, provided the new school has a similar or equivalent program. The receiving school may evaluate the student after E:\FR\FM\07MRP1.SGM 07MRP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:On January 12, 2016, as part of the 
Commission's systematic review of its rules and guides, the FTC 
published a notice in the Federal Register (``FRN'') requesting public 
comments on proposed revisions to the Guides for the Jewelry, Precious 
Metals, and Pewter Industries (``Jewelry Guides'' or ``Guides'').\1\ As 
set forth in the FRN, the Commission proposed several changes and 
additions designed to help prevent deception in jewelry marketing. The 
FRN invited comments on the proposed revisions generally, and also 
posed a series of 75 questions on specific issues. The FRN set April 4, 
2016 as the deadline for filing comments.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A trade association representing jewelry industry members, Jewelers 
Vigilance Committee (``JVC''), requests a 60-day extension of the 
comment deadline. JVC explains that the FRN poses many questions that 
may require consumer research, metallurgical testing, and other 
information developed through experts. JVC states that additional time 
is therefore needed for the committees it has convened to coordinate 
their work, perform the necessary analysis, and develop meaningful 
consumer research and other expert information.
    Given the complexity and range of issues raised in the FRN, 
including the request for consumer perception evidence, the Commission 
believes that allowing additional time for filing comments would help 
facilitate the creation of a more complete record. Moreover, this brief 
extension would not harm consumers because the current Guides remain in 
effect during the review process. Therefore, the Commission has decided 
to extend the comment period to June 3, 2016.
    You can file a comment online or on paper. For the Commission to 
consider your comment, we must receive it on or before June 3, 2016.

Commission tries to remove individuals' home contact information from 
comments before placing them on the Commission Web site. Because your 
comment will be made public, you are solely responsible for making sure 
that your comment does not include any sensitive personal information,

equivalent, passport number, financial account number, or credit or 
debit card number. You are also solely responsible for making sure that 
your comment does not include any sensitive health information, such as 
medical records or other individually-identifiable health information.

competitively sensitive information such as costs, sales statistics, 
inventories, formulas, patterns, devices, manufacturing processes, or 
customer names.

treatment, you must file it in paper form, with a request for 
confidential treatment, and you must follow the procedure explained in

public interest.
