SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This document corrects a final rule which amended 7 CFR part 1951 published in the Federal Register on September 25, 2003 (68 FR 55299-55304). Section 1951.954(b)(3), as promulgated incorrectly states, “The installment that may be set aside is limited to the first or second scheduled annual installment due after the disaster occurred and the amount may not exceed the installment set aside.” This document removes the words, “and the amount may not exceed the installment set aside” as extraneous. The maximum set-aside amount is covered by paragraph (b)(4). This correction will make the regulation more clear.
