State Advisory Councils
Document Number: 2018-01733
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-01
Agency: Legal Services Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
This proposed rulemaking would remove the Legal Services Corporation's (LSC) regulation on state advisory councils. LSC believes this action is appropriate because the state advisory councils are no longer active and their oversight functions have been replaced adequately by other offices and processes established by Congress or LSC. Executive Orders 13563, ``Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,'' and 13771, ``Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs,'' direct agencies to review their existing regulations and repeal or revise any that are obsolete or unnecessarily burdensome. Although LSC is not an agency of the Federal government subject to either executive order, LSC regularly reviews its regulations and has determined that this regulation can be eliminated.
Requests for Documents and Testimony
Document Number: 2018-01731
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-01
Agency: Legal Services Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) proposes to create a rule governing subpoenas and requests for LSC documents and testimony by non-federal litigants in cases in which LSC is not a party. Currently, LSC has no internal or external procedures in place to process such requests. This rule provides the public with guidance on where to send requests and establishes procedures by which those requests will be processed.
