Need for Correcting Amendment

In the final rule Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Transitional Worker Classification, published in the Federal Register on September 7, 2011 at 76 FR 55502, DHS intended to revise only the heading of paragraph (b)(1)(i)(J) of § 103.7, which pertains to various U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services fees. The heading of that paragraph was revised from “Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker in CNMI (Form I-129CW)” to “Petition for a CNMI-Only Nonimmigrant Transitional Worker (Form I-129CW).” We did not intend to alter the specific amount of the fee, contained in the text of the paragraph. However, in that final rule, paragraph (b)(1)(i)(J) of § 103.7 was inadvertently revised in its entirety, eliminating all text except for the heading. This document corrects the error by restoring the original text of the paragraph.
