ACTION:

Correcting amendment.

SUMMARY:

We are correcting an error in the regulatory text of an interim rule that amended the bovine tuberculosis regulations by establishing two separate zones with different tuberculosis risk classifications for the State of New Mexico. The interim rule was published in the Federal Register on March 23, 2009 (74 FR 12055-12058, Docket No. APHIS-2008-0124).

DATES:

Effective Date: March 22, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In an interim rule published in the Federal Register on March 23, 2009 (74 FR 12055-12058, Docket No. APHIS-2008-0124), we amended the bovine tuberculosis regulations by establishing two separate zones with different tuberculosis risk classifications for the State of New Mexico. (Please note, however, that the State of New Mexico, in a subsequent rule, was declared an accredited-free State and still holds that status). In our March 2009 rule, when we removed New Mexico from the list of modified accredited advanced States, we revised § 77.9(a) and introduced an error by referring to “modified accredited States” when we should have referred to “modified accredited advanced States.” This document corrects that error.
