SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On January 5, 1999, we published in the Federal Register (64 FR 385-387, Docket No. 98-113-1) an interim rule that amended the pine shoot beetle regulations (contained in 7 CFR 301.50 through 301.50-10) by, among other things, removing paragraph (d) of § 301.50-3. Paragraph (d) contained a map that showed the quarantined counties listed in § 301.50-3(c). This interim rule was affirmed as a final rule on April 2, 1999 (63 FR 15916-15918, Docket No. 98-113-2).

However, due to an oversight by the Office of the Federal Register, paragraph (d) of § 301.50-3 continued to appear in the Code of Federal Regulations revised as of January 1, 2000, and January 1, 2001.

On July 18, 2001, we published in the Federal Register (66 FR 37401-37405, Docket No. 01-048-1) an interim rule that amended the pine shoot beetle regulations by, among other things, revising the map contained in paragraph (d) of § 301.50-3. Since § 301.50-3(d) should have been removed prior to that date, we are now correcting the interim rule published July 18, 2001, to reflect that paragraph (d) of § 301.50-3 was being added rather than revised.
