SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This rule corrects the proposed rule published in the Federal Register on November 28, 2006 (71 FR 68755) proposing to amend the regulations governing the selection and functions of FSA State and county committees. In FR Doc. E6-20052, section 7.22 stated that the State committees “shall be generally responsible for carrying out in the State all farm programs and farm loan programs or any other functions assigned by the Secretary or a designee of the Secretary.” In fact, the State committees currently are not, and are not proposed to be, responsible for carrying out farm loan programs. This document corrects the proposed rule to remove the reference to farm loan programs.

In proposed rule FR Doc. E6-20052 published on November 28, 2006 (71 FR 68755) make the following correction. On page 68761, in the first column, revise § 7.22 to read as follows:

State committee duties.

The State committee, subject to the general direction and supervision of the Deputy Administrator, shall be generally responsible for carrying out in the State all farm programs or any other functions assigned by the Secretary or a designee of the Secretary.
