§ 40101 note - Policy
124 Stat. 3623
Title 28 published on 2015-11-24
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 28 CFR Part 104 after this date.
This rule finalizes the Interim Final Rule published on June 15, 2016, which implemented recently-enacted statutory changes governing the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001 (the “Fund”). After consideration of all of the public comments filed in response to the Interim Final Rule, the Special Master has concluded that no substantive changes to the Interim Final Rule are needed. Accordingly, this Final Rule adopts as final the provisions of the Interim Final Rule, with only two minor technical corrections.
On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed into law the James Zadroga 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Reauthorization Act (the “Reauthorized Zadroga Act”). The Act extends the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001 which provides compensation to any individual (or a personal representative of a deceased individual) who suffered physical harm or was killed as a result of the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001, or the rescue and recovery efforts during the immediate aftermath of such crashes or the debris removal efforts that took place in the immediate aftermath of those crashes. Special Master Sheila L. Birnbaum, appointed by the Attorney General to administer the Fund, is issuing this Interim Final Rule to address changes required by the Reauthorized Zadroga Act. Specifically, the statute extends the time period during which eligible claimants may submit claims for compensation until December 18, 2020, increases the Victim Compensation Fund's total funding available to pay claims, creates different categories of claims, directs the Victim Compensation Fund to issue full compensation to eligible claimants and imposes limitations on certain components of future loss calculations.
