    On page 21741, in first paragraph of the third column, correct ``we
have determined that a ten-year records retention requirement would
ensure that the agency's investigative needs are meet without
unnecessarily burdening manufacturers of motor vehicles and
equipment.'' to ``we have determined that a ten-year records retention
requirement would ensure that the agency's investigative needs are met
without unnecessarily burdening manufacturers of motor vehicles and
equipment.''
    On page 21742, in the third paragraph of the second column, correct
``The average age of the United States light vehicle fleet has been
trending upward reaching 11.6 years in 2016'' to ``The average age of

the costs of extending the records requirement to eight years
outweighed the benefits.''
    Again on page 21743, correct footnote 13, ``Child restraint system
manufacturers are not required to report property the number of damage
