The Commodity Credit Corporation published in the Federal Register of February 16, 2000, (65 FR 7960) a final rule promulgating regulations for Crop and Market Loss programs. The provisions of that rule related to Tobacco Loss Assistance at 7 CFR 1464 stated, in addition to other eligibility requirements, that for a person to be considered an eligible tobacco grower such person must own, operate, or produce tobacco on a farm that was used for the production of tobacco during the 1999 crop year. Eligibility for farms that produced tobacco in the 1998 crop year was inadvertently omitted. This correction provides that farms used for the production of tobacco during the 1998 crop year will be included in the eligibility requirements.
