SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Amendment of 39 CFR 775.6(b)(15) is necessary to update a reference to the statutory provision dealing with the administrative procedures for the closing or consolidation of post offices. Formerly, that provision was codified at 39 U.S.C. 404(b), but under section 1010(e) of Public Law 109-435, 120 Stat. 3261, was redesignated as 39 U.S.C. 404(d). This rule updates the reference in § 775.6.
