The Department of Education (ED) is delaying a number of proposals that were under discussion in its most recent negotiated rulemaking sessions to the spring of 2023, meaning that the earliest the regulations could take effect will be after July 1, 2024.
According to regulatory updates with the Office of Management and Budget, the Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) will be delayed until April of 2023 for the following rules:
The negotiated rulemaking committee reached consensus on the ATB rule, but did not reach consensus on the other four. While ED is free to draft language as it sees fit for topics that do not reach consensus, it typically does not make substantive changes to areas where the group was largely in agreement even if ultimate consensus was not reached.
