Internal E-Mails Suggest NPRM is Coming

According to an open letter to HHS secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Public Citizen obtained “very recent internal emails” among officials at the Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Health and Human Services, showing that the latter is actively working on a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to revise the Common Rule.

I’ll write separately about the substantive issue raised by Public Citizen. For now, the news is that as of November 13, 2014, senior officials were actively working to write an NPRM.

Well I, for one, am very interested to see what’s going to happen next.
