                SUMMARY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is issuing this final
                rule to
                [[Page 8741]]
                amend the regulations pertaining to the name of the Vocational
                Rehabilitation and Employment program. VA provides benefits and
                services under the program name of ``Vocational Rehabilitation and
                Employment.'' VA is proposing to amend the name to ``Veteran Readiness
                and Employment'' (VR&E). VA further proposes that the references to the
                position of ``Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Officer'' be
                amended to ``Veteran Readiness and Employment Officer'' and the
                position of ``Director of Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment'' be
                amended to ``Executive Director of Veteran Readiness and Employment''.
                DATES: This rule is effective February 16, 2022.
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Allison Bernheimer, Policy Analyst,
                Veteran Readiness and Employment Services (28), 810 Vermont Avenue NW,
                Washington, DC 20420, [email protected], (202) 461-9600. (This
                is not a toll-free telephone number.)
                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 20, 2021, VA published a proposed
                rule in the Federal Register (86 FR 27340) which would amend its
                regulations that contain the program name Vocational Rehabilitation and
                Employment, the position title of Vocational Rehabilitation and
                Employment Officer and the position title of the Executive Director of
                Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment. VA provided a 60-day comment
                period, which ended on July 19, 2021. We received no comments on the
                proposed rule. This rule adopts as a final rule, without changes, the
                proposed rule published in the Federal Register on May 20, 2021. Based
                on the rationale set forth in the notice of proposed rulemaking and in
                this document, VA adopts the proposed rule as a final rule.
                Executive Orders 12866 and 13563
                 Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the
                costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when
                regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize
                net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public
                health and safety effects, and other advantages; distributive impacts;
                and equity). Executive Order 13563 (Improving Regulation and Regulatory
                Review) emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and
                benefits, reducing costs, harmonizing rules, and promoting flexibility.
                The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has determined that
                this rule is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order
                12866. The Regulatory Impact Analysis associated with this rulemaking
                can be found as a supporting document at www.regulations.gov.
                Regulatory Flexibility Act
                 The Secretary hereby certifies that this final rule will not have a
                significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities
                as they are defined in the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-
                612). The factual basis for this certification is based on this
                rulemaking does not change VA's policy regarding small businesses, does
                not have an economic impact to individual businesses, and there is no
                increased or decreased costs to small business entities. Therefore,
                pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 605(b), the initial and final regulatory
                flexibility analysis requirements of 5 U.S.C. 603 and 604 do not apply.
                Unfunded Mandates
                 The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 requires, at 2 U.S.C.
                1532, that agencies prepare an assessment of anticipated costs and
                benefits before issuing any rule that may result in the expenditure by
                State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the
                private sector, of $100 million or more (adjusted annually for
                inflation) in any one year. This final rule will have no such effect on
                State, local, and tribal governments, or on the private sector.
                Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)
                 This final rule contains no provisions constituting a collection of
                information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-
                3521).
                Assistance Listing
                 The Assistance Listing numbers and titles for the programs affected
                by this document are 64.116, Vocational Rehabilitation for Disabled
                Veterans; 64.125, Vocational and Educational Counseling for

                Rehabilitation for Vietnam Veterans' Children with Spina Bifida or
                Other Covered Birth Defects.
                Congressional Review Act
                 Pursuant to Subtitle E of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement
                Fairness Act of 1996 (known as the Congressional Review Act) (5 U.S.C.
                801 et seq.), the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs
                designated this rule as not a major rule, as defined by 5 U.S.C.
                804(2).
