Live Blog: Campus SaVE Rulemaking, Day 2
What You Need to Know
Analysis: The second day of the negotiated rulemaking for the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) amendments to the Clery Act concluded today after about seven hours of mostly in-depth and issues-focused conversation. The group discussed the following key aspects of the new law: counting and reporting formats, disciplinary proceedings, training officials on campus, the simultaneous and in-writing notification of involved parties, appeals requirements, nondisclosure agreements, outcomes of proceedings, a definition around applicable jurisdiction, and technical changes from the law. You’ll have to read the liveblog below for details on each topic, but there was some agreement on ways forward in creating rules. Excellent news early in the negotiated rulemaking process. Overall, there were good suggestions from negotiators to balance the needs of survivors with schools’ concerns.
While conversations were going on today, the Department of Education updated their website to include the resources negotiators were using. Great news for all of us following along. Be sure to check out the issue papers in particular and see how the conversation below matched up with points raised there.
We’ll be back on February 24 when negotiators will have draft regulatory language in front of them for consideration. In the meantime, if you’re following along and have questions or concerns about what’s being discussed, email us email@example.com or shoot us a tweet @AAUWPolicy.
