SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Assassination Records Review Board was established by the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 (106 Stat. 3443). At the termination of the Review Board on September 30, 1998, its records were transferred to the Archivist of the United States. NARA continues to maintain and supplement the collection under the provisions of the Act. NARA is therefore, the successor in function to this defunct independent agency.

In the final rule NARA transferred those regulations with no substantive change to a new 36 CFR part 1290 in subchapter H. Currently, the CFR contains incorrect internal references. This document corrects those references.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations contain errors that are misleading and need to be corrected.
