The revised State plans from Louisiana and Nevada address material changes in the respective activities and budgets of the previously submitted State plans. In accordance with HAVA section 254(a)(12), all the State plans submitted for publication provide information on how the respective State succeeded in carrying out its previous State plan. The States all confirm that these material changes to their respective State plans were developed and submitted to public comment in accordance with HAVA sections 254(a)(11), 255, and 256.

Upon the expiration of 30 days from November 17, 2008, the States are eligible to implement the material changes addressed in the plans that are published herein, in accordance with HAVA section 254(a)(11)(C).
