The bridge will remain open for a minimum of two hours between bridge closures for the passage of marine traffic. In the event of bridge operational failure, the bridge owner or operator shall notify the Coast Guard Captain of the Port, New York immediately and shall ensure that a repair crew is on scene at the bridge no later than 45 minutes after the bridge fails, and remains until the bridge has been restored to normal operations or raised and locked in the fully open position. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: March 12, 2007. Gary Kassof, Bridge Program Manager, First Coast Guard District. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is revising its Schedule for Rating Disabilities, Appendices A, B, and C to include all current diagnostic codes. Appendix A is also amended to include all the diagnostic code historical information since the last review. SUMMARY: Effective Date: This amendment is effective April 19, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Trude Steele, Regulations Staff (211D), Compensation and Pension Service, Veterans Benefits Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 273–7210. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Schedule for Rating Disabilities, 38 CFR Part 4, Appendices A, B, and C have not been updated since July 1, 1988. These Appendices are tools for users of the Schedule for Rating Disabilities. The Appendices reflect changes to the diagnostic criteria in the Schedule for Rating Disabilities. We have amended the Appendices to add changes to the Schedule for Rating Disabilities since the Appendices were last updated. Additionally, we removed language in Appendix A that showed erjones on PRODPC74 with RULES VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:24 Mar 19, 2007 Jkt 211001 Administrative Procedures Act This final rule merely replaces inaccurate examples and does not alter the content of the regulations. Accordingly, there is a basis for dispensing with prior notice and comment and the delayed effective date provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553. Paperwork Reduction Act This document contains no provisions constituting a collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501–3521). 38 CFR Part 4 DATES: when a diagnostic code was updated to correct spelling, revise text, or other additional changes, which had no impact on the disability code. Those changes were incorporated within the text when amended. All diagnostic codes in Appendix A will now be categorized by when they were added, removed, whether the criterion was amended, and whether the disability evaluation was amended. We will continue to include the date for historical purposes. We revised Appendices B and C to provide the current diagnostic codes and disability terminology. We will continue to update the Appendices as the Schedule for Rating Disabilities is revised. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Secretary hereby certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities as they are defined in the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601–612. This final rule would not affect any small entities. Only VA beneficiaries could be directly affected. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 605(b), this final rule is exempt from the initial and final regulatory flexibility analysis requirements of sections 603 and 604. Executive Order 12866 Executive Order 12866 directs agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety, and other advantages; distributive impacts; and equity). The Executive Order classifies a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ requiring review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) unless OMB waives such review, as any regulatory action that is likely to result in a rule that may: (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the economy, productivity, competition, PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 12983 jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or tribal governments or communities; (2) Create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency; (3) Materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients thereof; or (4) Raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the President’s priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive Order. The economic, interagency, budgetary, legal, and policy implications of this final rule have been examined and it has been determined not to be a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. Unfunded Mandates The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 requires, at 2 U.S.C. 1532, that agencies prepare an assessment of anticipated costs and benefits before issuing any rule that may result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more (adjusted annually for inflation) in any year. This final rule would have no such effect on State, local, and tribal governments, or on the private sector.

DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

38 CFR Part 4

RIN 2900-AM60


Schedule for Rating Disabilities; Appendices A, B, and C

AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is revising its 
Schedule for Rating Disabilities, Appendices A, B, and C to include all 
current diagnostic codes. Appendix A is also amended to include all the 
diagnostic code historical information since the last review.

DATES: Effective Date: This amendment is effective April 19, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Trude Steele, Regulations Staff 
(211D), Compensation and Pension Service, Veterans Benefits 
Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, 
NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 273-7210.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Schedule for Rating Disabilities, 38 CFR 
Part 4, Appendices A, B, and C have not been updated since July 1, 
1988. These Appendices are tools for users of the Schedule for Rating 
Disabilities. The Appendices reflect changes to the diagnostic criteria 
in the Schedule for Rating Disabilities.
    We have amended the Appendices to add changes to the Schedule for 
Rating Disabilities since the Appendices were last updated. 
Additionally, we removed language in Appendix A that showed when a 
diagnostic code was updated to correct spelling, revise text, or other 
additional changes, which had no impact on the disability code. Those 
changes were incorporated within the text when amended. All diagnostic 
codes in Appendix A will now be categorized by when they were added, 
removed, whether the criterion was amended, and whether the disability 
evaluation was amended. We will continue to include the date for 
historical purposes. We revised Appendices B and C to provide the 
current diagnostic codes and disability terminology. We will continue 
to update the Appendices as the Schedule for Rating Disabilities is 
revised.

Administrative Procedures Act

    This final rule merely replaces inaccurate examples and does not 
alter the content of the regulations. Accordingly, there is a basis for 
dispensing with prior notice and comment and the delayed effective date 
provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This document contains no provisions constituting a collection of 
information under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501-3521).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Secretary hereby certifies that this final rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
as they are defined in the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-
612. This final rule would not affect any small entities. Only VA 
beneficiaries could be directly affected. Therefore, pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 605(b), this final rule is exempt from the initial and final 
regulatory flexibility analysis requirements of sections 603 and 604.

Executive Order 12866

    Executive Order 12866 directs agencies to assess all costs and 
benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when regulation is 
necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits 
(including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety, 
and other advantages; distributive impacts; and equity). The Executive 
Order classifies a ``significant regulatory action,'' requiring review 
by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) unless OMB waives such 
review, as any regulatory action that is likely to result in a rule 
that may: (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or 
more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the 
economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public 
health or safety, or State, local, or tribal governments or 
communities; (2) Create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere 
with an action taken or planned by another agency; (3) Materially alter 
the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan 
programs or the rights and obligations of recipients thereof; or (4) 
Raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the 
President's priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive 
Order.
    The economic, interagency, budgetary, legal, and policy 
implications of this final rule have been examined and it has been 
determined not to be a significant regulatory action under Executive 
Order 12866.

Unfunded Mandates

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 requires, at 2 U.S.C. 
1532, that agencies prepare an assessment of anticipated costs and 
benefits before issuing any rule that may result in the expenditure by 
State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the 
private sector, of $100 million or more (adjusted annually for 
inflation) in any year. This final rule would have no such effect on 
State, local, and tribal governments, or on the private sector.

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Numbers and Titles

    The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance program numbers and 
titles for this final are 64.104, Pension for Non-Service-Connected 
Disability for Veterans and 64.109, Veterans Compensation for Service-
Connected Disability.
