SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On November 30, 2005 (70 FR 72024), HUD published a final rule to amend the Construction and Safety Standards. The final rule, at 24 CFR 3280.305 and 3280.504, included listings of counties subject to those sections. This document makes editorial corrections to those listings, for example, to include counties inadvertently omitted.

Specifically, in the table of states and counties deemed to be within the Middle Roof Load Zone under § 3280.305(c)(3)(i)(B), “Crawford” is removed from the list of counties for Iowa and added to the list of counties for Michigan; “St. Croix” is removed from the list of counties for Minnesota and added to the list of counties for Wisconsin; “Doon” in the list of counties for Wisconsin is corrected to read “Door;” “Mackinaw” in the list of counties for Michigan is corrected to read “Mackinac;” and Coos, Grafton, Carroll, Chitten, Bellnap, Strafford, Merrimack, Sullivan, Rockingham, Hillsborough, and Chesire are deleted from the list of counties for New Hampshire and are replaced by the phrase, “All Counties.”

In addition, this document makes two conforming corrections in § 3280.801 to references to the edition of the National Electrical Code adopted by the November 30, 2005, final rule.
