SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In a direct final rule published in the Federal Register on June 12, 2007 (72 FR 32165-32167, Docket No. APHIS-2007-0072) and effective on August 13, 2007, we amended the black stem rust quarantine and regulations in 7 CFR part 301 by adding four varieties to the list of rust-resistant Berberis species or cultivars in § 301.38-2 of the regulations.

In the amendatory instructions we stated that we were amending paragraph (b) of § 301.38-2 in order to add the four varieties to the list of rust-resistant Berberis species or cultivars. However, this was incorrect. We should have stated that we were amending paragraph (a)(1) of § 301.38-2. This document corrects that error.
