As we have noted before, the federal rules of court and evidence process is transparent and robust-almost all of which is available to the public, unlike the JSC.
If you go to this link you will see two tranches of proposed changes to the rules evidence.
The first relates to Rules 106, 615, and 702. The Congressional package was submitted this past April. If all goes well in Congress, we can expect the new rules to be effective on 1 December 2023.
The second, anticipated for 1 December 2024, address rules 611, 613, 801, 804, and 1006.
We won't have to deal with the changes immediately because there needs to be some Presidential action first. See Mil. R. Evid. 1102.
