Getting traction at OMB to resist the rules change on continuing applications

Of resistance to the proposed rules on continuing applications, PatentHawk notes:

A cabal within Foley & Lardner, spearheaded by Philip Kiko and Stephen Maebius, and cheered on by patent rogue Hal Wegner, have faxed a letter to Susan Dudley, director of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (ORIA) Administrator of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

OMB reviews federal government agencies rule-making under aegis of Executive Order 12866, issued by President Clinton in 1993.

IPBiz notes that a more substantive action, involving a visit to OMB, is in the offing by other parties. Assuming the whole game isn't fixed, the USPTO proposal is in trouble.
