SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 30, 1999, we published in the
Federal Register (64 FR 35105) a notice announcing that we would be
establishing a negotiated rulemaking committee to develop proposed
regulations to implement chapter 2 of subpart 2 of part A of Title IV
of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), ``Gaining Early Awareness
and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs'' (GEAR UP). In that notice,
we also solicited nominations from anyone who believed that his or her
organization or group should participate in the GEAR UP negotiated
rulemaking process.
We list the organizations that we have selected to participate in
the GEAR UP negotiated rulemaking process. We have identified the
organizations listed as effective representatives of the interests that
are significantly affected by the subject matter of the negotiated
rulemaking. Organizations not listed that have expressed an interest in
participating in the process are encouraged to work with the listed
organizations to ensure that their views are known. Please note that
participation in the rulemaking process is not limited to members of
the committee. Following the negotiated rulemaking process, the
Department will publish proposed rules in the Federal Register for
public comment. The target date of publication of proposed rules
developed by the committee is October, 1999.
