    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CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is removing outdated internal information. The rule provides guidance to Department of the Navy entities on implementation and compliance with the Missing Persons Act. It does not add requirements beyond those established in Title 37 U.S.C. Chapter 10, “Payments to Missing Persons” (sections 551-559). The corresponding internal implementation guidance is Start Printed Page 11225publicly available in DoD Issuance 2310.05, “Accounting for Missing Persons—Boards of Inquiry,” at https://www.esd.whs.mil/​Portals/​54/​Documents/​DD/​issuances/​dodi/​231005p.pdf.

    This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review,” therefore, the requirements of E.O. 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs” do not apply.
