Department of the Navy, Department of Defense.
This final rule removes Department of the Navy (DON) regulations concerning Legal Assistance. Removal is appropriate because the regulation does not affect how the public engages the DON regarding legal assistance and does not place obligations on the public. The Judge Advocate General (JAG) of the Navy and the Staff Judge Advocate (SJA) to the Commandant of the United States Marine Corps issue internal instructions that establish administration of the DON legal assistance programs within the parameters established by many controlling statutes. These internal instructions do not require publication in the Code of Federal Regulations.
This rule is effective on August 2, 2019.

This rule, last updated on April 16, 2004 (69 FR 20541), provides internal guidelines for the operation of the legal assistance program. Current internal guidelines are published in JAG Instruction 5801.2B, “Navy Legal Assistance Program” (available at http://www.jag.navy.mil/library/instructions/5801_2b.pdf).
It has been determined that publication of this CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on removing internal procedures. Additionally, the ultimate statutory authority governing the delivery of military legal assistance services remains in effect at 10 U.S.C. 1044.
This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review.” Therefore, E.O. 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs” does not apply.
