Office of the General Counsel, HUD.


Final rule; correction.


HUD is correcting a final rule published in the Federal Register on November 15, 2013. The November 15, 2013, final rule revised HUD's regulations governing the protection of wetlands and floodplains. Upon publication, HUD discovered that it inadvertently duplicated an activity that the final rule exempts from the 8 Step Process for floodplains and wetlands management compliance. As a result, this document corrects this duplication by removing the duplication.


Effective Date: December 16, 2013.

On November 15, 2013 (78 FR 68719), HUD published a final rule that revised its regulations governing the protection of wetlands and floodplains codified at 24 CFR part 55. Section 55.12(c) of the rule lists activities exempt from the applicability of 24 CFR part 55. Among other things, the final rule added to the list of exempted activities the approval of financial assistance for restoring and preserving the functions and values of floodplains and wetlands. Upon review of the published final rule, HUD discovered that this exemption was added at §§ 55.12(c)(3) and (c)(12). These duplicated paragraphs are identical. As a result, HUD is correcting this final rule by deleting § 55.12(c)(12).

In FR Doc. 2013-27427 appearing on page 68719 in the Federal Register of Friday, November 15, 2013, the following correction is made:
