Goto Year:2013 |
§ 1.1507 Rulemaking on maximum rates for attorney fees.
(a) If warranted by an increase in the cost of living or by special
circumstances (such as limited availability of attorneys qualified to
handle certain types of proceedings), the Commission may adopt
regulations providing that attorney fees may be awarded at a rate
higher than $125.00 per hour in some or all of the types of proceedings
covered by this part. The Commission will conduct any rulemaking
proceedings for this purpose under the informal rulemaking procedures
of the Administrative Procedure Act.
(b) Any person may file with the Commission a petition for rulemaking
to increase the maximum rate for attorney fees, in accordance with
subpart C of this chapter. The petition should identify the rate the
petitioner believes this agency should establish and the types of
proceedings in which the rate should be used. It should also explain
fully the reasons why the higher rate is warranted. This agency will
respond to the petition by initiating a rulemaking proceeding, denying
the petition, or taking other appropriate action.
