The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published a collection of information notice in the Federal Register on June 12, 2008, that contained an error. The notice incorrectly stated that the ``Veterans Health Administration'' had submitted a collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment.

This final rule amends the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) regulations to implement section 662 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109-163). Section 662 of the Act prohibits interment and memorialization in a national or State veterans cemetery of certain persons who have been convicted of a Federal or State capital crime and whose conviction is final, unless such a person's sentence was commuted by the President or the Governor of a State. The final rule implements statutory provisions to ensure that the remains of certain persons who have committed Federal or State capital crimes are not interred or memorialized in a national or State veterans cemetery.
