SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Does this action apply to me?

The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be potentially affected by the action. If you have questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What does this technical amendment do?

EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of October 24, 2007 (72 FR 60266) (FRL-8152-9), establishing tolerances for residues of the fungicide fenamidone in or on various commodities. In Units II., III., and V., of the preamble, the text correctly listed the tolerance level for the commodity “strawberry” at 0.02 parts per million (ppm). The table in § 180.579(d), of the regulatory text, incorrectly listed the tolerance level for “strawberry” at 0.15. This technical amendment corrects that error.

III. Why is this action issued as a final rule?

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this technical amendment final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, because this action merely corrects a typographical error. EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and executive order reviews apply to this action?

No. For a detailed discussion concerning the statutory and executive order reviews, refer to Unit VI. of the October 24, 2007 final rule.

V. Congressional Review Act

Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of this rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
