This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Department of Veterans Affairs.
Proposed rule; withdrawal.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is withdrawing its proposal to amend that portion of its Schedule for Rating Disabilities that addresses musculoskeletal conditions, and related regulations, published in the Federal Register on February 11, 2003 (68 FR 6998). Nine commenters responded, raising numerous issues. VA has considered the issues and believes a new proposal is appropriate. Accordingly, VA is withdrawing the proposal and is developing a new proposal, which it intends to publish at a later date.Start Further Info
