Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION:

Correcting amendment.

SUMMARY:

In a final rule published in the Federal Register on April 1, 2005, and effective on April 1, 2005, we amended the regulations concerning overtime services provided by employees of the Agency's Plant Protection and Quarantine and Veterinary Services programs by adding or amending commuted traveltime allowances for travel between certain locations in Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico. In the final rule, two commuted traveltime allowances that should have appeared in the “within the metropolitan area” column were erroneously printed in the “outside the metropolitan area” column. This document corrects those errors.

DATES:

Effective February 3, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In a final rule that was published in the Federal Register on April 1, 2005 (70 FR 16691-16693, Docket No. 04-108-1), and effective on April 1, 2005, we amended the regulations concerning overtime services provided by employees of the Animal and Plant Health Protection Service's Plant Protection and Quarantine and Veterinary Services programs by adding or amending commuted traveltime allowances for travel between certain locations in Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico. Among other things, we increased the commuted traveltime allowance from 1 to 2 hours for Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport served from Fort Worth or Dallas, TX, within the metropolitan area. The commuted traveltime allowance of 2 hours for Houston (including Houston Intercontinental Airport) served from Start Printed Page 5666within the metropolitan area remained the same. However, when the final rule was published, those two commuted travel time allowances appeared in the “outside” rather than “within” columns under metropolitan area in the table. This document corrects those errors.
