II. What Does this Correction Do?

FR Doc. 05-17823 published in the Federal Register of September 13, 2005 (70 FR 53944) (FRL-7725-7) is corrected as follows:

1. On page 53944, in the first column, under SUMMARY, seventh line from the bottom, add “wheat bran;” before “wheat forage;” and “wheat shorts;” after “wheat hay;”.Start Printed Page 19442

2. On page 53945, in the first column, first full paragraph, fourth line from the bottom, the text after “vi.” should read “by replacing the tolerance for wheat milled products with wheat bran at 6.5 ppm and wheat shorts at 11.0 ppm.”

3. On the same page, in the same column, second full paragraph, add the following text after the last sentence: “EPA is removing the tolerance for wheat milled byproducts since it is no longer needed with the establishment of tolerances for wheat bran and wheat shorts.”

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 corrections of the subject tolerances do not underestimate the aggregate dietary exposures and risks from cyfluthrin uses. Therefore, the nature of these changes are not considered significant. 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. Refer to the discussion provided under Statutory and Executive Order Reviews in the Federal Register document of September 13, 2005.

V. Congressional Review Act

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 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).
