Updating VA Adjudication Regulations for Disability or Death Benefit Claims Related to Exposure to Certain Herbicide Agents
Document Number: 2024-02590
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2024-02-12
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its adjudication regulations relating to exposure to certain herbicide agents to incorporate the provisions of the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019 (the BWN Act), specifically by extending the presumed area of exposure to the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam, defining the boundaries of the offshore waters, expanding the date ranges for presumption of exposure in the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and establishing entitlement to spina bifida benefits for children of certain Veterans who served in Thailand. This rule also proposes to codify a presumption of exposure to certain herbicide agents for locations published on the Department of Defense's (DoD) record of locations where certain herbicide agents were used, tested or stored outside of Vietnam. In addition, this rule also proposes to codify longstanding procedures for searching for payees entitled to class action settlement payments aligned with Nehmer v. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and proposes to apply the definition of the Republic of Vietnam's offshore waters to claims for presumptive service connection for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. VA is also proposing to amend its adjudication regulations concerning presumptive service connection for diseases associated with exposure to certain herbicide agents. This amendment implements provisions of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which added bladder cancer, hypothyroidism and Parkinsonism as medical conditions eligible for presumptive service connection. Finally, this rulemaking proposes to implement certain provisions of the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act of 2022 (PACT Act), specifically by recognizing hypertension and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) as diseases eligible for a presumption of exposure to certain herbicides and adding new locations as eligible for a presumption of exposure to certain herbicides during specific timeframes.

Outer Burial Receptacles
Document Number: 2024-02183
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2024-02-06
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to revise its regulation that governs the outer burial receptacle (OBR) monetary allowance for burials in a VA national cemetery when a privately purchased OBR is used in lieu of a Government-furnished graveliner. First, VA proposes to expand applicability of the monetary allowance to burials in VA grant-funded State and Tribal cemeteries when a privately purchased OBR was used, or where an OBR is placed at the time of interment, at the cost of the State or Tribal Organization. Second, VA proposes to reimburse States and Tribal Organizations for OBRs that are pre-placed as part of a new construction or expansion grant project. In addition, VA proposes minor conforming revisions to its regulations governing aid for the establishment, expansion and improvement of veterans cemeteries to clarify that VA will reimburse the cost of preplaced OBRs separately from the grant award. These changes would implement new authorities provided in the Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020. VA also proposes to amend the regulation governing OBRs by removing retroactive provisions no longer needed because the relevant time period has passed.
