Maintenance of State financial support (Sec. 300.163)

Comment: One commenter requested that Sec. 300.163(c)(1), regarding waivers for maintenance of State financial support for exceptional or uncontrollable circumstances, provide examples of what would be considered a precipitous and unforeseen decline in the State's financial resources.

Discussion: We decline to limit the Secretary's discretion in these matters in the abstract. The Secretary makes the determinations regarding these waivers on a case-by-case basis and given the facts and circumstances at the time such a request is made.

Changes: None.
