38 CFR Part 36

RIN 2900-AP95

Veterans Benefits Administration; Loan Guaranty: Technical 

AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendment.


SUMMARY: On June 15, 2010, VA published a document in the Federal 
Register eliminating redundant provisions from its loan guaranty 
regulations following the implementation of a new electronic reporting 
system and redesignating the section numbers of these regulations. At 
that time, VA did not update cross-reference citations to conform to 
the redesignated sections. A subsequent notice updated some, but not 
all, cross-reference citations. VA is now updating the remaining non-
substantive, cross-reference citations for clarity and accuracy.

DATES: This correction is effective on February 21, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeffrey F. London, Director, Loan 
Guaranty Service (26), Veterans Benefits Administration, Department of 
Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 
632-8862. (This is not a toll-free number.)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 15, 2010, at 75 FR 33704, VA amended 
what had been the 36.4800 series of 38 CFR part 36 to eliminate 
redundant and obsolete regulations, found from 38 CFR 36.4800 through 
36.4893, and redesignated those sections as CFR 36.4300 through 
    On October 22, 2010, at 75 FR 65238, VA amended the cross-
references in the 36.4300 series to reflect the June 15, 2010, 
amendments. At that time, VA inadvertently failed to update a number of 
cross-references. Additionally, VA attempted to amend 38 CFR 
36.4309(c)(1)(vii) to replace a reference to 36.4826 with a reference 
to 36.4326. However, VA erroneously cited paragraph (c)(1)(vi) as 
containing the reference to 36.4826. Consequently, the Electronic Code 
of Federal Regulations, published by the Government Printing Office, 
could not implement the change, noting an ``inaccurate amendatory 
instruction'' at the bottom of 38 CFR 36.4309.
    With this notice, VA is amending Sec. Sec.  36.4309, 36.4322, 
36.4335, and 36.4378, to correct the outdated cross-references to the 
36.4800 series regulations.
