SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

I. Does this action apply to me? Back to Top

The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be potentially affected by this action. If you have questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What does this technical amendment Do? Back to Top

This technical amendment adds Bushberry, subgroup 13-07B to the table in paragraph (a) to 40 CFR 180.628. On July 27, 2011 (76 FR 44815) (FRL-8875-5), the Registration Division issued in the Federal Register an amendment to 40 CFR 180.628. In the preamble to the final rule RD discussed the addition of several commodities and tolerances, including a tolerance for Bushberry, subgroup 13-07B. However, the tolerance for Bushberry was inadvertently omitted from the regulatory amendment and the table in 180.628. This technical amendment corrects that omission.

III. Why is this correction issued as a final rule? Back to Top

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this technical amendment final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, because this omission was a typographical error. The tolerance for Bushberry, subgroup 13-07B was included in the petitioned for tolerances, exposure and risk evaluation, determination of safety, and conclusion sections of the Final Rule, FR Doc. 2011-18708 published in the Federal Register of July 27, 2011 (76 FR 44815-44821). EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and Executive Order reviews apply to this action? Back to Top

This technical amendment adds a tolerance that was inadvertently omitted from a previously published final rule and does not otherwise change the original requirements of the final rule. Since this rule corrects an omission, this action is not subject to the statutory and Executive Order review requirements. For information about the statutory and Executive Order review requirements as they related to the final rule, see Unit VI. in the Federal Register of July 27, 2011 (76 FR 44815-44821) (FRL-8875-5).

V. Congressional Review Act Back to Top

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the Agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
