SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

Please refer to the final rule that published on August 31, 2005 for general information about potentially affected entities and accessing this document electronically.

II. What Does This Correction Do?

EPA published in the Federal Register of August 31, 2005 (70 FR 51628) (FRL-7716-1) regulations establishing tolerances for combined residues of S-metoclachlor in or on certain commodities as set forth in Unit II of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION of that document. Portions of the regulatory amendments and the regulatory text were set out incorrectly. This document is being published to correct those errors.

III. Why Is This Correction Issued as a Final Rule?

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making today's technical correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, because the use of notice and comment procedures are unnecessary to effectuate this correction. As such, EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).

IV. Do Any of the Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Apply to This Action?

No. This action only corrects errors in the amendatory language for a previously published final rule and does not impose any new requirements. EPA's compliance with the statutes and Executive Orders for the underlying rule is discussed in Unit VII. of the August 31, 2005, final rule (70 FR 51628).

V. Congressional Review Act

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a “major rule ” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
