The Department of Energy, in a new rule covering Critical Energy Infrastructure Information (CEII),  said that it will eliminate the “Non-Internet Public” designation that has kept some 5,400 documents available in reading rooms but not on the Internet.  The agency said much of the information is already available online and the NIP marker “does not enhance security or safety.”   It said it would allow 60 days in which the status of any individual document could be challenged before being posted.   (11/19/07)
