Official FAA timeline for sUAS regulations

Most of the rumors I read on the new FAA sUAS regulations are that the NPRM will be out in June/July of 2011. However, according to the US Dept of Trans.it is March 10, 2011. These dates are timelines that can not be changed without a court order, even by the FAA itself. So where is everyone getting June/July as the NPRM release date?

If everyone waits for July it could be too late as the comment period is scheduled to end on July 14, 2011.

 

Got this information from this gov site :
