SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Washington State Department of Transportation requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule, 33 CFR 117.1051, for the Montlake Bridge across the Lake Washington Ship Canal, mile 5.2, at Seattle, WA. The requested deviation is necessary to accommodate safe movement of ‘‘Beat the Bridge Run’’ event participants. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position.

Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) adopts as final, without change, an interim final rule amending its Schedule for Rating Disabilities (VASRD) dealing with mental disorders and its adjudication regulations that define the term ‘‘psychosis.’’ Outdated references are replaced with references to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM–5). Nomenclature used to refer to certain mental disorders is amended to conform to DSM–5. This rule also provides clarification of the applicability date.

Applicability Date: The provisions of this final rule shall apply to all applications for benefits that are received by VA or that are pending before the agency of original jurisdiction on or after August 4, 2014. The Secretary does not intend for the provisions of this final rule to apply to claims that were pending before the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (i.e., certified for appeal to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals on or before August 4, 2014), the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, or the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on August 4, 2014, even if such claims are subsequently Rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:06 Mar 18, 2015 Jkt 235001 remanded to the agency of original jurisdiction.

(This is not a toll-free telephone number.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VA published an interim final rule in the Federal Register at 79 FR 45093 on August 4, 2014, to amend the portion of the VASRD dealing with mental disorders and its adjudication regulations which define the term ‘‘psychosis.’’ The DSM–5, which was published by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2013, provides a common language and standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders. The amendments in the interim final rule deleted outdated references to the DSM–IV and DSM–IV– TR and replaced them with references to DSM–5. Additionally, the rulemaking updated the nomenclature in the VASRD to refer to certain mental disorders to conform to DSM–5 terminology. VA provided a 60-day public comment period, which ended on October 3, 2014, and received no public comments in response to the publication of this interim final rule. One non-comment was received from a VA employee suggesting additional changes to Part 3 regulations which are outside the scope of this rulemaking. No changes were made as a result of the non-comment. Although no comments were received on this issue, in reviewing the interim final rule to prepare for publication of the final rule, VA determined that the applicability date should be clarified. For the reasons set forth in the interim final rule and below, we are adopting the interim final rule as final, with changes to the applicability date, as explained below. Upon further review, VA has amended the language of the applicability date to ensure clarity and avoid potential misapplication of this final rule. In the interim final rule, VA stated that the provisions applied to all applications for benefits that are received by VA or that are pending before the agency of original jurisdiction on or after the effective date of the interim final rule. For clarity, this language has been amended to specify that the provisions of the final rule apply to claims received by VA or pending before the agency of original jurisdiction as of August 4, 2014, the PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 date the interim final rule was published in the Federal Register and became effective. Similarly, the interim final rule stated that the provisions did not apply to claims that were certified for appeal to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals or were pending before the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, or the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. For clarity, this language has been amended to specify that the provisions of the final rule do not apply to claims that were pending before the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (i.e., certified for appeal to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals on or before August 4, 2014), the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, or the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on August 4, 2014, even if such claims are subsequently remanded to the agency of original jurisdiction. No other changes or amendments to the applicability date language are made. Incorporation by Reference The Director of the Federal Register approves the incorporation by reference of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM–5) (2013) for the purposes of 38 CFR 4.125(a) in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51. You may obtain a copy from the American Psychiatric Association, 1000 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22209–3901. You may inspect a copy at the Office of Regulation Policy and Management, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW., Room 1068, Washington, DC 20420 or the Office of the Federal Register, 800 North Capitol Street NW., Suite 700, Washington, DC. Although §§ 3.384 and 4.130 also mention DSM–5, incorporation by reference is not required because those sections merely refer to the DSM–5 as a source and not as a requirement. In contrast, § 4.125 requires claims adjudicators to use the DSM–5. Administrative Procedure Act Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3), VA found that there was good cause to dispense with advance public notice and opportunity to comment on the interim final rule and good cause to publish that rule with an immediate effective date. The interim final rule was necessary to implement immediately the Secretary’s decision that health professionals must utilize the latest diagnostic standards—the DSM–5—the same standards used to diagnose and treat veterans with mental disorders—to adjudicate claims pertaining to mental E:\FR\FM\19MRR1.SGM 19MRR1
