Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION:

Final rule; correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

On May 28, 2004, FRA published a final rule, which increased the minimum and aggravated maximum civil monetary penalties it applies when assessing a civil penalty for a violation of railroad safety statutes and regulations under its authority. In preparing that final rule for publication, six minor typographical errors were made. These amendments correct the typographical errors published in the final rule.

DATES:

The corrections to the final rule are effective on October 28, 2004.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The errors included in the final rule published on May 28, 2004 (69 FR 30591) consisted of twice listing incorrect appendices to be amended (appendix A to part 221 instead of appendix C; and appendix A to part 241 instead of appendix B), inserting the incorrect monetary amount in one amendment (to part 235), and listing the incorrect section to be amended in (§ 231.11 instead of § 233.11) another amendment. All of the typographical errors were obvious from their context. FRA is correcting these minor errors so that the final rule clearly conforms to FRA's intent.
