SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

In its September 19, 2013, final rule implementing changes to 49 CFR 821.19, the NTSB finalized an amendment to paragraph (d) of that section. 78 FR 57527. In the revision of paragraph (d), paragraph (d)(1) contains the pronoun “it,” which refers to the noun “the Administrator.” This is incorrect. As a result, by this correction, the NTSB makes a technical correction to this sentence, to use the correct pronoun in the sentence.

List of Subjects in 49 CFR Part 821 Back to Top

(2) The releasable portion of the EIR shall include all information in the EIR, except for the following:
