US State Dept. finalizes passport fee increases, continues to ignore human rights complaints
On February 2, 2012, the State Department published a final rule in the Federal Register setting fees for issuance and renewal of U.S. passports and related consular services.
Contrary to some press reports, this rule didn't actually increase the current fees. It merely "finalizes" the fee increases that have already been in effect for the last 18 months since the publication of an interim final rule (don't you love that bureaucratic doublespeak?) in June, 2010.Link | Posted by Edward on Monday, 6 February 2012, 06:01 ( 6:01 AM)
