ACTION:

Proposed rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

This document corrects the table to a proposed rule published in the Federal Register of January 16, 2008. This correction clarifies the table representing the flooding source(s), location of referenced elevation, the effective and modified elevation in feet and the communities affected for Pulaski County, Arkansas, and Incorporated Areas; specifically, for flooding sources “Good Earth Drain, Isom Creek, Kinley Creek, Little Maumelle River, Nowlin Creek, South Start Printed Page 12698Loop, South Split, Taylor Loop Creek and Tributary 4 to Little Maumelle River,” than was previously published.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1-percent-annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a).

These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed BFEs are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the contents in these buildings.

Correction

In proposed rule FR Doc. E8-725, beginning on page 2860 in the issue of January 16, 2008, make the following corrections, in the table published under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. On page 2860, in § 67.4, in the table with center heading Pulaski County, Arkansas, and Incorporated Areas, the flooding source, location of referenced elevation, the effective and modified elevation in feet and the communities affected for flooding sources “Good Earth Drain, Isom Creek, Kinley Creek, Little Maumelle River, Nowlin Creek, South Loop, South Split, Taylor Loop Creek and Tributary 4 to Little Maumelle River”, need to be corrected to read as follows:
