Proposed rule; corrections.


This document corrects the preamble and the regulatory text to a proposed rule published by the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) in the Federal Register of April 11, 2012, regarding a proposal to revise the U.S. Standards for Wheat under the U.S. Grain Standards Act. The proposed rule would change the definition of Contrasting classes in Hard White wheat and change the grade limits for shrunken and broken kernels. GIPSA believes that these proposed changes will help to facilitate the marketing of wheat.


The comment period closing date for the proposed rule published April 11, 2012, at 77 FR 21685 remains June 11, 2012.
