his designee, authority to solicit gifts and donations. VA received two 
supportive comments and no adverse comments concerning the proposed 
rule and its companion substantially identical direct final rule 
published in the Federal Register on the same date. Accordingly, this 
document withdraws as unnecessary the proposed rule.

DATES: The proposed rule published on July 11, 2016, 81 FR 44827, is 
withdrawn.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a proposed rule published in the Federal 
Register on July 11, 2016, 81 FR 44827, VA proposed to amend 38 Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) 38.603(b) that prohibits the solicitation of 
contributions. On the same date, VA published a substantially identical 
direct final rule at 81 FR 44792. The direct final rule and proposed 
rule each provided a 30-day comment period that ended on August 10, 
2016. Two public comments were received, both in support of the 
rulemakings. Because no adverse comments were received, VA is
