12/28/2000

In the final rule, we recognize that disclosures for intelligence and national security activities do not always involve law enforcement. Therefore, we delete the provisions of proposed § 164.510(f)(4), and we address disclosures for intelligence and national security activities in § 164.512(k), on uses and disclosures for specialized government functions. Comments and responses on these issues are included below, in the comments for that section.
