Rules noticed in the 11/18 DCR

  • Proposed rules from the DC Housing Authority (DCHA):   DCHA issued proposed rules (Word, .doc) concerning the waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher Program.   Public comments will be accepted for 30 days from the date of publication.   Details about submitting comments are in the rules.
  • Proposed rules for mental health services:   The Department of Mental Health issued proposed rules (Word, .doc) for peer specialist certification.   Peer specialists will deliver Medicaid-reimbursable mental health rehabilitation services to children, youth, and adults.   Public comments will be accepted for 30 days from the date of publication.   Details about submitting comments are in the rules.
  • Proposed rules from UDC about issuing a warning during an emergency:   The UDC Board of Trustees issued proposed rules (Word, .doc) regarding the establishment of policies and procedures for timely warning in the event of an emergency.   Public comments will be accepted for 30 days from the date of publication.   Details about submitting comments are in the rules.   (Presumably, these rules are a result of crises like that at Virginia Tech.   One wonders why it has taken so long for UDC to develop these plans.)
  • Proposed rules to implement a discrimination and harassment policy at UDC:   The UDC Board of Trustees issued proposed rules (Word, .doc) to implement a discrimination and harassment policy at UDC that conforms with local and federal laws.   Public comments will be accepted for 30 days from the date of publication.   Details about submitting comments are in the rules.
  • Proposed rules for UDC to comply with crime notification law:   Proposed by the UDC trustees, the purpose of the proposed rule (Word, .doc) is to comply with the Campus Safety Act, also known as the Jeanne Clery Act, which requires college and universities to report annual crime statistics, provide timely warnings of serious crimes when there may be a threat to others, and to keep a public log of campus incidents.   According to Complying With The Jeanne Clery Act, the law ties disclosure to participation in federal student financial aid programs.   Public comments will be accepted for 30 days from the date of publication.   Details about submitting comments are in the rules.
  • Proposed rules to establish alcohol policy at UDC:   The purpose of the proposed rule (Word, .doc) is to establish an alcohol policy in compliance with the Higher Education Act, Campus Safety Act and other federal and local laws.   Public comments will be accepted for 30 days from the date of publication.   Details about submitting comments are in the rules.
  • Proposed and emergency rules from CFSA:   CFSA has just issued these emergency and proposed rules (Word, .doc) about foster homes even though they were effective in August.   CFSA seeks comments on these rules.   They've explained that these rules include substantial revisions from the previous emergency and proposed rules on the same subject.
