The law adjusts this maximum amount annually to reflect inflation based upon the consumer price index, and Department of Defense is required to publish the new amount in the Federal Register within 60 days of the adjustment made for that year. This notice is published to notify readers of the new amount that will be in effect during calendar year 2004. As of January 1, 2004, the maximum monthly rental amount in subsection 301(a), paragraph (1)(A)(ii), will be $2,465.
