SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In FR Doc. 2019-18201 appearing on page 45644 in the Federal Register of Friday, August 30, 2019, portions of amendatory instructions to sections in 9 CFR parts 201, 202, and 203 were either incorrect or incomplete.

In an instruction amending § 201.108-1, the section number read in error (§ 201.180-1). When amending paragraph (b) in § 202.2, we neglected to replace “GIPSA” with “AMS.” In amending § 203.7, we cited incorrect language to be changed. And finally, in the amendment to § 203.14, we incorrectly cited § 203.114.

This correcting amendment rule amends 9 CFR 201.108-1, 202.2, 203.7, and 203.14 as intended in the final rule published August 30, 2019, at 84 FR 45644.
