Stark II, Part 2, regs postponed . . . . again.

The OMB's OIRA Executive Order Submissions Under Review document has been recently revised to show a new "Received" date of 12/7/2003 for the Stark II rule (Part 2):
HHS-CMS RIN: 0938-AK67
Medicare Program; Physicians' Referrals to Health Care Entities
with which they have Financial Relationships -- Phase II
STAGE: Final Rule ECONOMICALLY SIGNIFICANT: No
RECEIVED: 12/17/2003 LEGAL DEADLINE: None
That means the rule probably won't be out before March 16. Care to make a little wager that it won't be published before summer?
