                Department of the Air Force
                32 CFR Chapter VII
                [Docket ID: USAF-2021-HQ-0001]
                RIN 0701-AA81
                Appointment to the Air Force Academy
                AGENCY: Department of the Air Force, Department of Defense.
                ACTION: Final rule.
                -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                SUMMARY: This final rule removes the regulation concerning how the
                Department of the Air Force appoints individuals to the United States
                Air Force Academy. The part is outdated, contains internal guidance,
                reiterates statutory law, and is otherwise subject to the military
                function exemption to rulemaking. Applicants to the Air Force Academy
                are individually provided with any relevant entrance information and
                the current policy is publicly available on the United States Air Force
                Academy's website. Therefore, the part is unnecessary and can be
                removed from the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
                DATES: This rule is effective on December 17, 2021.
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laura Megan-Posch at 703-697-4370.
                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This final rule removes 32 CFR part 901,
                ``Appointment to the United States Air Force Academy,'' which was
                originally published on June 26, 1986 (51 FR 23221), and has not since
                been updated. Part 901 is outdated, contains internal guidance,
                reiterates statutory law, and is otherwise subject to the military
                function exemption to rulemaking. Current policy is provided
                individually to applicants and is contained in Air Force Manual 36-
                2032, Military Recruiting and Accessions, September 27, 2019 (available
                at https://static.e-publishing.af.mil/production/1/af_a1/publication/afman36-2032/afman36-2032.pdf). Accordingly, this part is unnecessary
                and can be removed from the CFR. It has been determined that
                publication of this CFR part removal for public comment is
                impracticable and contrary to the public interest because it is based
                on removing outdated and unnecessary content. This rule is not
                significant under Executive Order 12866, Sec 3, ``Regulatory Planning
                and Review.''
                 The Under Secretary of the Air Force, Ms. Gina Ortiz Jones, having
                reviewed and approved this document, is delegating the authority to
                electronically sign this document to Mr. Tommy W. Lee, who is the Air
                Force Federal Register Liaison Officer, for purposes of publication in
                the Federal Register.

                CHAPTER VII--DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE
                SUBCHAPTER K--[REMOVED AND RESERVED]
                0
                Accordingly, by the authority of 5 U.S.C. 301, subchapter K of chapter
                VII of 32 CFR, consisting of part 901, is removed and reserved.
                Tommy W. Lee,
                Air Force Federal Register Liaison Officer.
