In October, the DOE announced its intentions:


34 CFR Chapter VI

Negotiated Rulemaking Committee, Negotiator Nominations and
Schedule of Committee Meetings--Student Loan Programs

AGENCY: Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice of establishment of negotiated rulemaking committee.


SUMMARY: We announce our intention to establish a negotiated rulemaking
committee to prepare proposed regulations governing the student loan
programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965,
as amended (HEA). The committee will include representatives of
organizations or groups with interests that are significantly affected
by the topics proposed for negotiation. We request nominations for
individual negotiators who represent key stakeholder constituencies for
the issues to be negotiated to serve on the committee and we set a
schedule for committee meetings.

DATES: We must receive your nominations for negotiators to serve on the
committee on or before November 28, 2011. The dates, times, and
locations of the committee meetings are set out in the Schedule for
Negotiations section under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION, below.


Now Doug Lederman of Inside Higher Ed is asking if there is a "Mismatch on Loan Negotiations?"
