Also included is a proposed revision of Appendix 12A of the Manual for Courts-Martial concerning lesser included offenses. The approval authority for these changes is the President.

LT Alexandra Nica, JAGC, USN, (202) 685– 7058 or alexandra.nica@navy.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 11, 2017 (79 FR 59938– 59959), the JSC published a Notice of Proposed Amendments concerning procedure and evidence applicable in trials by court-martial, non-judicial punishment proceedings, and the punitive articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice as amended by the Military Justice Act of 2016, Division E of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 and follow-on changes made by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018. The Notice also included a proposed revision of Appendix 12A of the Manual for Courts-Martial concerning lesser included offenses and a Notice of Public Meeting to receive comments on these proposals. The public meeting was held on August 3, 2017. Two members of the public provided oral comments at the public meeting, and both members of the public also submitted written comments electronically. Several additional written comments were received electronically. All comments were considered by the JSC. Public Comments Comments and materials received from the public are available under Docket ID Number DOD–2017–OS– 0032, and at the following link https:// www.regulations.gov/docket?D=DOD2017-OS-0032. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23907 Discussion of Comments and Changes The JSC considered each public comment and made some modifications to the proposed amendments accordingly. a. Several comments concerning orthography, grammar, and syntax were received and reviewed, and corrections were made throughout the Manual for Courts-Martial. b. The extensive nature of the proposed changes necessitated the reproduction, in full, of Parts I–V of the Manual for Courts-Martial and, although not a part of the proposed Executive Order or issued by the President, the Analyses and Discussions were set forth immediately following the provisions and paragraphs to which they pertained to facilitate review and comment on the proposed amendments. Additionally, Appendix 2.1 provided proposed nonbinding guidance to be issued by the Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, pursuant to Article 33 (Disposition Guidance) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), 10 U.S.C. 833. Comments were received suggesting changes to Analyses, Discussions, and the Appendices. These comments are being considered by the JSC and the Department of Defense in the preparation of the supplementary materials. c. The Department of Defense published several proposals concerning impaneling and excusing excess members and specifically solicited comments as to the optimal rule for removing excess members consistent with Article 36 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Several comments were received regarding the different proposals. Proposal #1, providing for the random assignment of numbers to remaining members by the military judge, was incorporated. d. A comment proposing a change to R.C.M. 804 to ensure that court-martial attendance by the accused constitutes the accused’s appointed place of duty for purposes of pay and allowance was received. The comment highlighted that multiple courts had granted confinement credit for accused who did not receive normal pay and allowances or had to pay for their own travel and housing during the pendency of the court-martial. The JSC has adopted this proposal as follows: —R.C.M. 804(a) is amended to read as follows: ‘‘(a) Presence required. The accused shall be present at the arraignment, the time of the plea, every stage of the trial including sessions conducted under Article 39(a), voir dire and challenges of E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1
