Today's Federal Government

     Here is a list of agencies that are proposing changes to their regulations or policies and giving notices that are required by law so that we may understand what our government is doing - today. This happens everyday

If you are of strong constitution, I urge you to take a little trip down one of the little sucking vortices known collectively as federal government agencies and see where it leads you. I like to do this at least once every six months. It's good to remind ourselves what our tax dollars really pay for. 

Today, I am recommending the Education Department (ED) notification of the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) report on recommendations for the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA).  Need a primer on NACIQI? Here's one. How about the HEA? Here's one for that.
