The final regulations that are the subject of these corrections concern the filing of rate schedules, tariffs, and service agreements under the Federal Power Act.

Need for Correction

In Order No. 714, the instructions for the amendatory language contained errors that resulted in the publication of incorrect language in the Federal Register for sections 35.1 and 35.17.
