    Im looking for the definition of

    This claim must be afforded expeditious treatment. The law
    requires that all claims that are remanded by the Board of
    Veterans' Appeals or by the United States Court of Appeals
    for Veterans Claims for additional development or other
    appropriate action must be handled in an expeditious manner.
    See 38 U.S.C.A. ยงยง 5109B, 7112 (West Supp. 2007).

    How much time is expeditious manner. dont tell me all the time needed to investigate the claim lol

    all I can find is this

    (2) The table of sections at the beginning of such chapter is amended by inserting after the item relating to section 5109A the following new item:

    `5109B. Expedited treatment of remanded claims.'.

    (b) CASES REMANDED BY COURT OF APPEALS FOR VETERANS CLAIMS- (1) Chapter 71 is amended by adding at the end the following new section:

    `Sec. 7112. Expedited treatment of remanded claims
    `The Secretary shall take such actions as may be necessary to provide for the expeditious treatment by the Board of any claim that is remanded to the Secretary by the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.'.

    (2) The table of sections at the beginning of such chapter is amended by adding at the end the following new item:

    `7112. Expedited treatment of remanded claims.'.

    (c) REPEAL OF SOURCE SECTION- Section 302 of the Veterans' Benefits Improvement Act of 1994 (Public Law 103-446; 108 Stat. 4658; 38 U.S.C. 5101 note) is repealed.
