Earlier this morning, Health and Human Services and the fifteen other federal departments and agencies with which it is collaborating on the Common Rule Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) announced that the NPRM comment period, which was scheduled to end on December 7th, will be extended for 30 days. The new deadline for comments is January 6, 2016. A copy of the notice can be found here. Another reason to be grateful this Thanksgiving!
