There was an interesting, yet way too brief entry at RegInfo.gov about a DOJ/OJB submission on Wednesday to the Office of Management and Budget of an Interim Final Rule entitled “International Terrorism Victim Expense Reimbursement Program”. This program was not listed in the Unified Regulatory Agenda so there is nothing telling up about what this entails.
It will be interesting to see how this rule, when it finally makes it to the public comment portion of the rule making progress (2 months to 6 months from now?). Will it be limited to just attacks outside of the United States or will it include foreign terrorist attacks within the US? If it includes stateside attacks, will the reimbursements be voided if the gun-toters are US Citizens with the planners being international terrorists?
