This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Health and Human Services, HHS.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is extending the period for comments on revised Guidance to Federal Financial Assistance Recipients Regarding Title VI Prohibition Against National Origin Discrimination Affecting Limited English Proficient Persons through January 6, 2004. This revised guidance was issued pursuant to Executive Order 13166.
The deadline for comments is extended to January 6, 2004.
Comments should be addressed to Deeana Jang with “Attention: LEP Comments,” and should be sent to 200 Independence Avenue, SW., Room 506F, Washington, DC 20201. Comments may also be submitted by e-mail at LEP.firstname.lastname@example.org.Start Further Info

In the notice document 03-20179 beginning on page 47311 in the issue of Friday, August 8, 2003, HHS announced an extended 120 day comment period, “to encourage comment from the public and from recipients regarding experience in applying the revised guidance.” However, that notice incorrectly identified January 6, 2004, as the end of the comment period. This was corrected in notice document C3-20179 on page 49843 in the issue of Tuesday, August 19, 2003, which identified the correct date as December 8, 2003. In comments received by the Department by December 8, concerns were raised that confusion about the close of the 120 day comment period may inadvertantly foreclose consideration of submissions made by commenters relying on the January 6, 2004 date. To avoid any such confusion, the Department will hold open the comment period through January 6, 2004, for comments received by the Department through that date.Start Signature
