SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FMCSA makes minor corrections to fix errors in the final rule published on December 8, 2016. In instruction 10, amending § 383.73, the Agency corrects “(b)(10)” to read “(b)(11)” in both the instruction and associated regulatory Start Printed Page 2916text. Additionally in § 383.73, FMCSA changes paragraph “(e)(8)” to read “(e)(9)” in both the instruction and associated regulatory text. In instruction 13, amending Part 383, the Agency changes “§ 384.235” to read “§ 384.236.” These changes are required because as written, the instruction and associated regulatory text would have deleted the recent changes published in the Federal Register on December 5, 2016, in the final rule titled “Commercial Driver's License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse” (Clearinghouse) (81 FR 87686, RIN 2126-AB18, Docket No. FMCSA-2011-0031). FMCSA makes these corrections in this document to ensure the original language in the Clearinghouse final rule remains in effect.
