Background

This document corrects the final regulations published on January 26, 2006 (71 FR 4231-4234) to provide assistance to producers and first-handlers of the 2004 crop of cottonseed in counties declared a disaster by the President due to 2004 hurricanes and tropical storms. In the final rule, section 1427.1103(b) mistakenly refers to cotton, rather than cottonseed, in stating that “Cotton must not have been destroyed or damaged by fire, flood, or other events such that its loss or damage was compensated by other local, State, or Federal government or private or public insurance or disaster relief payments” in order to be eligible under the Cottonseed Payment Program. This correction changes the term “cotton” to “cottonseed.”
