Could the Dec. 1 implementation date be delayed?

There are efforts at the federal level to stop or delay the implementation, including a bill passed Sept. 28 by the U.S. House of Representatives that would delay the Dec. 1 effective date for six months. However, the bill still needs to be passed by the Senate, and if that occurs, it could also be subject to a presidential veto.  In order to be prepared for timely compliance with the rule change, Kent State is proceeding with the Dec. 1 guideline.
