Commission Rule 140.2 describes the organization and location of the Commission's regional offices in New York, Chicago, and Kansas City (the Eastern, Central, and Southwestern regional offices). As of December 31, 2006, the Commission closed the Minneapolis sub-office of the Southwestern regional office. In addition, the Kansas City office moved to a new location in September 2004. The Commission is therefore amending Rule 140.2 to delete the reference to the Minneapolis office and to reflect the new address of the Southwestern regional office. There is no change to the states covered by the Southwestern region. The Commission is also replacing the term “regional director” with “regional coordinator” to reflect the term used by the Commission to describe the head of each regional office.
In addition, the Commission is amending the list of addresses provided in Rule 145.6, which instructs members of the public on where to direct requests for public records, to remove the reference to the Minneapolis office and to update the Kansas City address.Start List of Subjects
