DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

38 CFR Part 36

RIN 2900-AN71


Loan Guaranty: Elimination of Redundant Regulations; Technical 
Correction

AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION: Final rule; technical correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On June 15, 2010, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) 
published a document in the Federal Register (75 FR 33704), amending 
its loan guaranty regulations to eliminate redundancies in the 
regulations that

[[Page 34319]]

were a result of a new electronic reporting system. At that time, we 
failed to update the cross-reference citations within the redesignated 
sections. On October 22, 2010 (75 FR 65238), Sections 36.4301 through 
36.4323(e) were amended to replace the incorrect cross-reference 
citations with the accurate, updated cross-references. This document 
corrects the remaining redesignated sections (Sec.  36.4324 through 
Sec.  36.4393) to contain the correct and updated cross-reference 
citations. These nonsubstantive changes are made for clarity and 
accuracy.

DATES: Effective June 16, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joseph E. Simpson, Senior Attorney, 
The Office of General Counsel, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 
Vermont Avenue NW., (021D), Washington, DC 20420, (202) 368-6406.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 15, 2010 (75 FR 33704), VA amended 
38 CFR part 36. The purpose of the amendments was to eliminate 
redundant regulations found at 38 CFR 36.4300 through 36.4393 (the 
``36.4300 series''). VA redesignated the regulations that had 
previously been published at 38 CFR 36.4800 through Sec.  36.4893 (the 
``36.4800 series'') to replace the 36.4300 series in its entirety. On 
October 22, 2010 (75 FR 65238), VA amended the redesignated sections of 
36.4301 through 36.4323(3) to replace the incorrect internal cross 
references to the 36.4800 series contained within those sections, with 
the updated, accurate internal cross references to the 36.4300 series. 
That final rule technical citation failed to make the remaining 
necessary corrections.
    With this action, VA is amending the remaining 36.4300 series 
regulations to update the internal cross-references to the 36.4800 
series regulations. This action is necessary because the 36.4800 series 
has been removed from 38 CFR part 36, making the current cross 
reference citations to the series obsolete. VA is amending each 
citation by simply replacing the numbers ``48'' with ``43'' (e.g., 
changing the reference to Sec.  36.4860 to read Sec.  36.4360).
    For the convenience of the reader, we have included a redesignation 
table that shows each affected section, the cross reference that is 
removed, and the new cross reference that is added in its place.

Administrative Procedure Act

    Because this final rule is only a technical correction to the 
cross-references in certain regulations, prior notice-and-comment is 
unnecessary. Accordingly, this final rule is exempt from this 
requirement under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). For the same reason, there is 
good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to publish this rule with an 
immediate effective date.

List of Subjects in 38 CFR Part 36

    Condominiums, Housing, Veterans with disabilities, Loan programs--
housing and community development, Loan programs--veterans, Grant 
program--veterans, Manufactured homes, Mortgage insurance, Reporting 
and recordkeeping requirements, Veterans.

    Approved: May 29, 2015.
William F. Russo
Acting Director, Office of Regulation Policy and Management, Office of 
the General Counsel, Department of Veterans Affairs.

    For the reasons set forth in the preamble, 38 CFR 36.4324 through 
36.4393 are corrected by making the following correction amendments:
