SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

In FR Doc. 2010-28774 filed November 10, 2010, there was a technical error that is identified and corrected in the Correction of Errors section below.

II. Summary of Errors

In the DATES section, we inadvertently requested that the Office of the Federal Register base the comment period closing date on the date the proposed rule will appear in the Federal Register instead of the date of filing for public inspection. Therefore, in section III. of this correction notice, we correct this error by inserting the date that the comment period closes, which is January 11, 2011.

III. Waiver of 60-Day Comment Period

We ordinarily permit a 60-day comment period on notices of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register, as provided in section 1871(b)(1) of the Act. The change made by this correction notice does not constitute agency rulemaking, and therefore the 60-day comment period does not apply. This correction notice merely corrects a technical error in the proposed rule and does not make substantive changes to the proposed rule that would require additional time on which to comment. Instead, this correction notice is intended to ensure the accuracy of the proposed rule.

IV. Correction of Errors

In FR Doc. 2010-28774 filed November 10, 2010, make the following correction:

1. In the DATES section, the phrase “[OFR—insert date 60 days after date of publication in the Federal Register]” is corrected to read “January 11, 2011.”
