Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA.

ACTION:

Correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

This document contains corrections to the regulations that were published in the March 17, 2008 Federal Register (73 FR 14153). The regulations inadvertently omitted language in § 1005.13 paragraphs (d)(3) and (d)(4), and § 1007.13 paragraphs (d)(3) and (d)(4) that provide for a zero diversion limit standard on loads of milk requesting transportation credits. This document corrects the final regulations by revising these sections.

DATES:

Effective Date: May 9, 2008.
