The Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission (the ``Commission'') is an independent adjudicatory agency that provides trials and appellate review of cases arising under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, 30 U.S.C. 801 et seq. (2000) (the ``Mine Act''). Trials are held before the Commission's Administrative Law Judges and appellate review is provided by a five-member Review Commission appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The Commission is proposing to revise its procedural rules, regulations implementing the Equal Access to Justice Act, and regulations implementing the Privacy Act in order to aid the efficient adjudication of proceedings at the Commission's trial and appellate levels and to ensure consistency with the statutes underlying those regulations.
