SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Does this action apply to me?

The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be potentially affected by this action. If you have questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What does this technical correction do?

Currently, 40 CFR 180.639(a)(1) provides an incorrect tolerance value for the established tolerances for corn, field, grain (0.02 ppm); corn, field, stover (0.15 ppm); corn, sweet, stover (0.25 ppm); and cotton gin byproducts (0.60 ppm). As supported by submitted field trial and processing data, these tolerance values should be revised to 0.03 ppm; 15 ppm; 25 ppm; and 60 ppm, respectively. Therefore, EPA is correcting the entries for corn, field, grain; corn, field, stover; corn, sweet, stover; and cotton gin byproducts in the table in § 180.369(a)(1).

III. Why is this correction issued as a final rule?

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this technical correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, because this final rule corrects a number of typographical errors and does not otherwise change the original requirements of the final rule. EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and Executive Order reviews apply to this action?

This final rule corrects a number of typographical errors and does not otherwise change the original requirements of the final rule. As a typographical correction, this action is not subject to the statutory and Executive Order review requirements. For information about the statutory and Executive Order review requirements as they related to the final rule, see Unit VI. in the Federal Register of August 18, 2010 (75 FR 50914) (FRL-8836-2).

V. Congressional Review Act

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the Agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of this final rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
