      document electronically through the EPA Internet under the ``Federal Register'' listings at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr.

  2. What Does this Correction Do?

    FR Doc. E7-12161 published in the Federal Register of June 27, 2007 (72 FR 35182) (FRL-8133-1) is corrected as follows:

    On page 35187, 180.511(a), the table in the amendment to Sec. 180.511(a) establishing tolerances appeared as a two column table. The table should have appeared as a three column table. The omitted third column should include the heading ``Expiration/Revocation Date'', and the entry ``None'' to correspond to the tolerance listed in each row. This document is being published to correct that omission.

  3. Why is this Correction Issued as a Final Rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(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 the use of notice and comment procedures is unnecessary to effectuate this correction. EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).

  4. Do Any of the Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Apply to this Action?

    No. This action only corrects typographical omissions for a previously published final rule and does not impose any new requirements. EPA's compliance with the statutes and Executive Orders for the underlying rule is discussed in Unit VI. of the June 27, 2007 final rule (71 FR 35182).

  5. Congressional Review Act

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the Agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. 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 final rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
