SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A final rule, which published December 30, 2002 (67 FR 79692), redesignated § 679.20(a)(5)(ii) as § 679.20(a)(5)(iii). This paragraph redesignation affected a cross reference in existing § 679.20(a)(5)(iii)(B) but the change was not made. This error is corrected by this action.

Need for Corrections

This rule corrects a cross reference in § 679.20(a)(5)(iii)(B) by removing the reference to “(a)(5)(ii)(A)” and adding in its place “(a)(5)(iii)(A).”

Classification

Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Assistant Administrator of Fisheries (AA), NOAA, finds good cause to waive prior notice and an opportunity for public comment. NOAA finds that prior notice and comment are unnecessary as this rule makes a minor, non-substantive change to correct a mis-citation to another section of the regulation. Because this action is not substantive, 5 U.S.C. 553(d) does not apply. Therefore, this final rule is not subject to a 30-day delay in effectiveness.
