Importation of Cattle From Mexico; Addition of Port at San Luis, 
AZ; Correction

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: We are correcting an error in the amendatory language in our 
final rule that added the port of San Luis, AZ, as a port through which 
cattle that have been infested with fever ticks or exposed to fever 
ticks or tick-borne diseases may be imported into the United States and 
that removed provisions that limit the admission of cattle that have 
been infested with fever ticks or exposed to fever ticks or tick-borne 
diseases to the State of Texas. The final rule was published in the 
Federal Register on January 2, 2009.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of this correction to Sec.  
93.427(b)(2) introductory text is delayed indefinitely. This delay is 
consistent with the delayed effective date of the amendment to Sec.  
93.427(b)(2) introductory text published in the Federal Register on 
January 2, 2009, at 74 FR 5-6. APHIS will publish a document announcing 
an effective date for this correction in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    In a final rule published in the Federal Register on January 2, 
2009 (74 FR 1-6, Docket No. APHIS-2007-0095), we amended the 
regulations regarding the importation of cattle from Mexico by adding 
San Luis, AZ, as a port through which cattle that have been infested 
with fever ticks or exposed to fever ticks or tick-borne diseases may 
be imported into the United States. We also amended the regulations to 
remove provisions that limit the admission of cattle that have been 
infested with fever ticks or exposed to fever ticks or tick-borne 
diseases to the State of Texas. In amendatory instruction 3, it was our 
intent to further amend the introductory text of Sec.  93.427(b)(2) to 
add the port of San Luis. However, we inadvertently omitted San Luis, 
AZ, from the text that followed. This document corrects that error.
    After port facilities at San Luis, AZ, are constructed and approved 
by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), APHIS will 
publish a document announcing an effective date for this correction in 
the Federal Register.

conditions are strictly observed and complied with:
