7 CFR Part 301

[Docket No. APHIS-2007-0072]


Black Stem Rust; Addition of Rust-Resistant Varieties; Correction

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Direct final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are correcting an error in the amendatory instructions in 
our direct final rule that added four varieties to the list of rust-
resistant Berberis species or cultivars in the black stem rust 
quarantine and regulations. The direct final rule was published in the 
Federal Register on June 12, 2007 (72 FR 32165-32167, Docket No. APHIS-
2007-0072) and became effective on August 13, 2007.

DATES: Effective Date: December 20, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Vedpal Malik, Agriculturalist, 
Invasive Species and Pest Management, PPQ, APHIS, 4700 River Road, Unit 
134, Riverdale, MD 20737-1236; (301) 734-6774.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a direct final rule published in the 
Federal Register on June 12, 2007 (72 FR 32165-32167, Docket No. APHIS-
2007-0072) and effective on August 13, 2007, we amended the black stem 
rust quarantine and regulations in 7 CFR part 301 by adding four 
varieties to the list of rust-resistant Berberis species or cultivars 
in Sec.  301.38-2 of the regulations.
    In the amendatory instructions we stated that we were amending 
paragraph (b) of Sec.  301.38-2 in order to add the four varieties to 
the list of rust-resistant Berberis species or cultivars. However, this 
was incorrect. We should have stated that we were amending paragraph 
(a)(1) of Sec.  301.38-2. This document corrects that error.
