SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 6, 1997 (62 FR 5528), VA amended 38 CFR part 3 to eliminate gender-specific language. As part of that amendment, VA removed 38 CFR 3.51. At that time, we failed to remove all the cross-references to 38 CFR 3.51 in other parts of 38 CFR. As § 3.51 has been removed, any cross-references to it are obsolete and should have been eliminated. This document corrects those sections which refer to 38 CFR 3.51 by removing the cross-reference. These nonsubstantive technical corrections are made for clarity and accuracy. With this action, VA is amending 38 CFR part 18, Subpart E, Appendix B and 38 CFR 21.260(d), which contain cross-references to 38 CFR 3.51.

Administrative Procedure Act

This action is a technical correction to cross-references in two regulations. Accordingly, it is exempt from the prior notice-and-comment and delayed-effective-date requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553.
