GAO reviewed the Department of Justice's (DOJ), new rule on claims under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments of 2000 and amendments contained in the 21st Century Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act of 2002. GAO found that (1) the rule would revise DOJ's regulations implementing the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) to reflect changes made to the RECA by the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments of 2000 and the 21st Century Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act; and (2) DOJ complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule, with the exception of the 60-day delay in the effective date.
