Department of Justice October 12, 2023 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer, Review Procedures
Document Number: 2023-22206
Type: Rule
Date: 2023-10-12
Agency: Department of Justice
The Department of Justice (``Department'') is revising its regulations to provide that the Attorney General may, in his discretion, review decisions and orders of Administrative Law Judges (``ALJs'') in the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (``OCAHO'') in cases arising under section 274B of the Immigration and Nationality Act (``INA'' or ``the Act''). This revision will ensure that the adjudicatory process for section 274B cases is consistent with the Supreme Court's decision in the 2021 case United States v. Arthrex, Inc., and will align that process with similar processes for discretionary review of decisions by ALJs in OCAHO and throughout the Executive Branch. It will not limit or alter parties' right to seek judicial review of adverse decisions.
Propionyl Chloride
Document Number: 2023-22570
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2023-10-12
Agency: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice
The Drug Enforcement Administration finds that propionyl chloride is used in the illicit manufacture of the controlled substance fentanyl, as well as fentanyl analogues, and fentanyl-related substances and is important to the manufacture of these substances because it is often used in synthetic pathways to illicitly manufacture fentanyl, fentanyl analogues, and fentanyl-related substances. Prior to proposing to list propionyl chloride as a list I chemical, DEA is soliciting information on the current uses of propionyl chloride (other than for the synthesis of fentanyl) in order to properly determine the effect such a proposed action would have on legitimate industry.
