As I read the Washington Post article, and in particular the paragraph
copied below, I can't help but be pleased, but cautious. The last sentence
says ". . . after allowing for additional comments." Some in an earlier
post seemed to interpret this statement to mean we would not get the
opportunity to comment again. Do we need to write our legislators and make
sure that another comment period is included in the process? I don't
beleive that an additional comment period is required by law, but I am
really not at all sure. My question, I guess, is "Now what?"
Glickman said he could not comment
specifically on how the department would
respond to what he called the "extraordinary"
wave of public opinion generated by the
proposed rule, but he did promise "significant
modifications" in a final rule that he hoped
would be approved by the end of this year
after allowing for additional comments.
