38 CFR Part 38

RIN 2900-AP75


Authority To Solicit Gifts and Donations

AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION: Direct final rule; confirmation of effective date.

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

SUMMARY: On July 11, 2016, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) 
published a direct final rule amending its regulation that governs 
soliciting contributions from the public by officials and employees of 
NCA, or authorizing the use of officials' or employees' names, name of 
the Secretary, or the name of VA for the purpose of making a gift or 
donation to VA. VA received two supportive comments and no adverse 
comments concerning the direct final rule and its companion 
substantially identical proposed rule published in the Federal Register 
on the same date. This document confirms that the direct final rule 
became effective on September 9, 2016. In a companion document in this 
issue of the Federal Register, we are withdrawing as unnecessary the 
proposed rule.

DATES: The effective date of September 9, 2016, for the direct final 
rule published July 11, 2016, 81 FR 44792, is confirmed.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas Howard, Chief of Staff,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a direct final rule published in the 
Federal Register on July 11, 2016, at 81 FR 44792, VA amended 38 Code 
of Federal Regulations (CFR) 38.603(b), giving the Under Secretary of 
Memorial Affairs (USMA), or his designee, authority to solicit gifts 
and donations, or approve the solicitation of gifts and donations from 
the public. VA published a companion substantially-identical proposed 
rule on the same date, at 81 FR 44827, to serve as a proposal for the 
revisions in the direct final rule in case adverse comments were 
received. The direct final rule and proposed rule each provided a 30-
day comment period that ended on August 10, 2016. No adverse comments 
were received. Two comments that supported the rulemaking were received 
from the general public. VA is not making any changes to this 
rulemaking based on the comments.
    Under the direct final rule procedures that were described in 81 FR 
44827 and 81 FR 44792, the direct final rule became effective on 
September 9, 2016, because no adverse comments were received within the 
comment period. In a companion document in this issue of the Federal 
Register, VA is withdrawing the proposed rulemaking, RIN 2900-AP74, 
published at 81 FR 44827, as unnecessary.
