The Violence Policy Center urges that the final rule implement a 90-day document retention period and fully and permanently implement the Final Rule that was published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2001. Furthermore, the VPC recommends that the rule adopt the recommendations stated above. Thank you for considering our views.
