Editor's Comments of the Day
The INS has issued notices extending the period for public comments on three INS forms-N-600/N-643, I-866, and I-775.
Each of the comment requests allows for additional time as no comments were received. The comment should address
whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the
agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
enhancement of the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and minimizing the burden of
the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated,
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology,
e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. If you have ever thought that INS forms ask for too much or
irrelevant information why have you not taken the time to comment?
