Section 300.506(b), regarding the requirements for mediation, has been revised by (1) removing the provision about the "confidentiality pledge," in proposed paragraph (b)(9), because it is no longer required under the Act, and (2) changing paragraph (b)(8), regarding the prohibition against using discussions that occur in the mediation process, to clarify that "civil proceedings" includes any Federal court or State court of a State receiving assistance under this part.
