publish, at a time and in a manner specified by the Administrator of

and Budget, an agenda of all regulations under development or review.
The Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 602(a), requires ED to

    The regulatory flexibility agenda may be combined with any
other agenda that satisfies the statutory requirements (5 U.S.C.
605(a)). In compliance with the Executive Order and the Regulatory
Flexibility Act, the Secretary publishes this agenda.

    For each set of regulations listed, the agenda provides the
title of the document, the type of document, a citation to any
rulemaking or other action taken since publication of the most
recent agenda, and planned dates of future rulemaking. In addition,
the agenda provides the following information:

 An abstract that includes a description of the problem to be
addressed, any principal alternatives being considered, and potential
costs and benefits of the action.

 An indication of whether the planned action is likely to have
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities
as defined by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601(6)).

 A reference to where a reader can find the current regulations
in the Code of Federal Regulations.

 A citation of legal authority.

 The name, address, and telephone number of the contact person
at ED from whom a reader can obtain additional information regarding
the planned action.

    In accordance with ED's Principles for Regulating listed in its
regulatory plan (74 FR 64194, published December 7, 2009); ED is
committed to regulations that improve the quality and equality of
services to its customers. ED will regulate only if absolutely
necessary and then in the most flexible, most equitable, least
burdensome way possible.

    Interested members of the public are invited to comment on any
of the items listed in this agenda that they believe are not
consistent with the Principles for Regulating. Members of the
public are also invited to comment on any regulations listed in
this agenda that ED plans to review under section 610 of the
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 610) to determine their
economic impact on small entities. ED has determined that none of
the regulations in this agenda require review under section 610.

    This publication does not impose any binding obligation on ED
with regard to any specific item in the agenda. ED may elect not to
pursue any of the regulatory actions listed here, and regulatory
action in addition to the items listed is not precluded. Dates of
