Notice is hereby given that the Department of State has forwarded the attached Notifications of Proposed Export Licenses to the Congress on the dates indicated pursuant to sections 36(c) and 36(d) and in compliance with section 36(f) of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2776).
This rule reorganizes, restructures, and updates passport regulations in order to make them easier for users to access information, to better reflect current practice and changes in statutory authority, and to remove outdated provisions. In general, the revisions do not mark a departure from current policy. Rather, the Department's intent is to bring greater clarity to current passport policy and practice and to present it in a less cumbersome way.
