The Under Secretary or Deputy Under Secretary shall be responsible for referring to the Secretary or to the Deputy Secretary any matter on which action would appropriately be taken by such official.
Functions delegated herein may be re-delegated, to the extent authorized by law. The Secretary of State or Deputy Secretary of State may at any time exercise any function delegation herein.
This delegation does not repeal or affect any delegation of authority currently in effect except Delegation of Authority 198, dated September 16, 1992, which is hereby revoked.
This delegation of authority shall be published in the Federal Register.
