SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 5, 2013, VA published a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 33894) (FR Doc. 2013-13224) announcing an opportunity for public comment on a proposed collection of certain information by VA. This notice solicited comments on a draft questionnaire to collect information to ascertain and monitor the health effects of service members' exposure to toxic airborne chemicals and fumes caused by open burn pits. The notice listed a VA point of contact that provided the draft questionnaire to members of the public during the comment period.

In response to a suggestion from several Members of Congress, VA has decided to post the draft questionnaire on our Web site at http://www.publichealth.va.gov/​docs/​exposures/​draft-questionnaire-burn-pit-registry.pdf and http://www.publichealth.va.gov/​docs/​exposures/​justification-burn-pit-registry.pdf and is extending the comment period for an additional 15 days, to August 20, 2013.
