SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On October 9, 2008, we published in the Federal Register (73 FR 60008-60048, Docket No. APHIS 2008-0023) a proposed rule to revise the regulations regarding the importation, interstate movement, and environmental release of certain genetically engineered organisms.

In the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of the proposed rule on page 60037, under the heading “D. Executive Order 12988,” we stated that, if this proposed rule is adopted, no State or local laws or regulations would be preempted by this rule. This information is incorrect. We should have stated that, if this proposed rule is adopted, all State and local laws and regulations that are inconsistent with this rule will be preempted. This document corrects that error.

Correction

In FR Doc. E8-23584, published on October 9, 2008 (73 FR 60008-60048), make the following correction: On page 60037, first column, under the heading “D. Executive Order 12988,” correct “No State or local laws or regulations would be preempted by this rule” to read “All State and local laws or regulations that are inconsistent with this rule will be preempted”.
