DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

Office of the Secretary

32 CFR Part 65

[Docket ID: DOD-2017-OS-0046]
RIN 0790-AJ94


Post-9/11 GI Bill

AGENCY: Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, DoD.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This final rule removes the Department of Defense (DoD) 
regulation concerning the Post-9/11 GI Bill. In 2009, when first 
published, this part included significant information explaining the 
entire program, including the responsibilities of both DoD and the 
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). When the part was revised at 78 FR 
34251 on June 7, 2013, however, it only addressed DoD responsibilities, 
as VA responsibilities are now addressed in that agency's regulations. 
All burdens and responsibilities pertaining to persons who are not 
members of the Uniformed Services are addressed in VA regulations, and 
repeal of this regulation will have no effect on VA regulations. 
Repealing this rule supports website best practices because the public 
user is linked to the original and appropriate source, VA. This rule is 
internal to DoD and should be removed.

DATES: This rule is effective on June 11, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia Leopard at 571-256-0590.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 DoD 
internal policies and procedures that are publically available on the 
Department's issuance website.
    DoD internal guidance concerning the Post-9/11 GI Bill will 
continue to be published in DoD Instruction 1341.13, ``Post-9/11 GI 
Bill'' available at http://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/dodi/134113p.pdf.
    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.
