Publication Procedures for Federal Register Documents During a Funding Hiatus
Document Number: 2013-23713
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-09-30
Agency: Office of the Federal Register
In the event of an appropriations lapse, the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) would be required to publish documents directly related to the performance of governmental functions necessary to address imminent threats to the safety of human life or protection of property. Since it would be impracticable for the OFR to make case-by- case determinations as to whether certain documents are directly related to activities that qualify for an exemption under the Antideficiency Act, the OFR will place responsibility on agencies submitting documents to certify that their documents relate to emergency activities authorized under the Act.
