Correcting amendments.


The Department of Veterans Affairs is correcting a final rule that eliminated the use of VA Form 10-0408A when veterans receiving treatment or care seek temporary lodging at a VA Fisher House for their relatives, close friends, or caregivers that was published in the Federal Register (82 FR 26592) on June 8, 2017.


The correction is effective August 2, 2017.

End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


On June 8, 2017, at 82 FR 26592, VA amended what had been the § 60.15 series of 38 CFR part 60 to eliminate use of VA Form 10-0408A, found at 38 CFR 60.15. VA amended the section heading and heading for paragraph (b) in the § 60.15 series to reflect the June 8, 2017, amendment. At the time of the amendments, VA inadvertently failed to include the accompanying instruction amending the section and paragraph headings. The rule became effective on July 10, 2017; however, the Federal Register could not revise the section and corresponding paragraph (b) heading without the missing amendatory instruction.

Consequently, the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations, published by the Government Printing Office, could not implement the change, noting an “inaccurate amendatory instruction” at 38 CFR 60.15. With this notice, VA is amending § 60.15 to correct the accompanying instruction amending the section and paragraph headings in the regulation.
