Document Number: 2018-07963
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-04-17
Agency: Legal Services Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
This final rule removes the Legal Services Corporation (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 LSC believes this action is appropriate because the state advisory councils are no longer active and their oversight functions have been replaced adequately by other offices and processes established since the regulation was promulgated. 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.
