On August 30, 2005, at 79 FR 51243, the SBA published an interim final rule amending SBA's HUBZone, 8(a) Business Development, Government Contracting and Size Standard regulations. This rule implemented provisions of the Small Business Act including the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005, specifically, Subtitle E of Division K entitled the Small Business Reauthorization and Manufacturing Assistance Act of 2004.

Need for Correction

Since publication, SBA has discovered that this interim rule inadvertently stated SBA's intent to revise § 126.306 (found at 70 FR 51250) when it should have cited specifically to § 126.306(a). SBA intended to revise only subsection (a) leaving the other subsections unchanged.
