Submitting or Viewing Written Public Comments 

Individuals wishing to view or submit written public comment regarding draft work products should do so by going to www.regulations.gov and entering Docket No. DOJ-LA-2017-0004.  Public comments may be submitted at any time, but to ensure your comments are taken into consideration in the work product development process, they must be submitted during an open public comment period.  

In accordance with the Federal Records Act, please note that all comments received are considered part of the public record, and shall be made available for public inspection and posted on the Department of Justice’s website. The comments to be posted may include personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, etc.) and confidential business information voluntarily submitted by the commenter.

If you want to submit personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, etc.) as part of your comment, but do not want it to be made available for public inspection and posted online, you must include the phrase "PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION" in the first paragraph of your comment. You must also place all the personally identifiable information you do not want made available for public inspection or posted online in the first paragraph of your comment and identify what information you want redacted.

If you want to submit confidential business information as part of your comment, but do not want it to be made available for public inspection and posted online, you must include the phrase "CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS INFORMATION" in the first paragraph of your comment. You must also prominently identify confidential business information to be redacted within the comment. If a comment has so much confidential business information that it cannot be effectively redacted, all or part of that comment may not be made available for public inspection or posted online.

Personally identifiable information and confidential business information identified and located as set forth above will be redacted and the comment, in redacted form, will be made available for public inspection and posted on this website.
