Application Procedures and Criteria for Approval of Providers of a Personal Financial Management Instructional Course by United States Trustees
Document Number: E8-26550
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-11-14
Agency: Department of Justice
This notice of proposed rulemaking (``rule'') sets forth proposed procedures and criteria United States Trustees shall use when determining whether applicants seeking to become and remain an approved provider of a personal financial management instructional course satisfy all prerequisites of the United States Code, as implemented under this rule. Under the current law, individual debtors must participate in an instructional course concerning personal financial management before receiving a discharge of debts. The current law enumerates mandatory prerequisites and minimum standards applicants seeking to become approved providers of a personal financial management instructional course must meet. Under this rule, United States Trustees will approve applicants for inclusion on publicly available provider lists in one or more federal judicial districts if an applicant establishes it meets all the requirements of the United States Code, as implemented under this rule. After obtaining such an approval, a provider shall be authorized to provide an instructional course in a federal judicial district during the time the provider remains approved.
Controlled Substances: Final Revised Aggregate Production Quotas for 2008
Document Number: E8-26798
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-11-12
Agency: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice
This notice establishes final 2008 aggregate production quotas for controlled substances in schedules I and II of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).

Exempt Chemical Mixtures Containing Gamma-Butyrolactone
Document Number: E8-26606
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-11-12
Agency: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice
DEA is proposing that chemical mixtures that are 70 percent or less gamma-butyrolactone (GBL), by weight or volume, be automatically exempt from regulatory controls under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). DEA is seeking through this rulemaking to exempt only those chemical mixtures that do not represent a significant risk of diversion. If finalized as proposed, this regulation would result in GBL chemical mixtures, in concentrations greater than 70 percent, becoming subject to List I chemical regulatory requirements of the CSA, except if exempted through an existing categorical exemption. DEA is taking this action because there is a serious threat to the public safety associated with the ease by which GBL is chemically converted to the schedule I controlled substance gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB). DEA recognizes that concentration criteria alone cannot identify all mixtures that warrant exemption. As a result, 21 CFR 1310.13 provides for an application process by which manufacturers may obtain exemptions from CSA regulatory controls for those GBL chemical mixtures that are not automatically exempt under the concentration criteria.
