Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking; correction.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission published in the Federal Register of October 27, 2005, a document proposing to add a part 47 and part 159 to Title 18 of the CFR. Two clauses in the proposed regulatory language for parts 47 and 159 were inadvertently incorporated into subparagraph text, but were intended to start a new line in the text since they are to modify all three subparagraphs. As such formatting is inconsistent with Federal Register requirements, these modifying clauses will be moved to the beginning of the paragraph.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission published in the Federal Register of October 27, 2005 (70 FR 61930), a document adding a part 47 under subchapter B (Regulations under the Federal Power Act) and a part 159 (Regulations under the Natural Gas Act) to Title 18 of the CFR. The proposed regulatory text for the two parts failed to set out certain sentences as modifying clauses. This document corrects that error.
