SUMMARY:

In an interim rule published in the Federal Register on September 5, 2000, we amended the citrus canker regulations by adding portions of several counties in Florida to the list of quarantined areas and by expanding the boundaries of the quarantined areas in several counties in Florida due to recent detections of citrus canker in these areas.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In an interim rule published in the Federal Register on September 5, 2000 (65 FR 53528-53531, Docket No. 00-036-1), we stated that we were amending the citrus canker regulations by adding portions of Hendry, Hillsborough, and Palm Beach Counties, FL, to the list of quarantined areas and by expanding the boundaries of the quarantined areas in Broward, Collier, Dade, and Manatee Counties, FL, due to recent detections of citrus canker in these areas.

Although Palm Beach County was listed, our description of quarantined areas did not include any portions of Palm Beach County. Palm Beach County should not have been listed. We are correcting this error in this document.

In rule FR Doc. 00-22636, published on September 5, 2000 (65 FR 53528-53531, Docket No. 00-036-1), make the following correction: On page 53530, column 2, in § 301.75-4, correct the section heading “Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach Counties” to read “Broward and Dade Counties”.
