Need for Correction

    On October 28, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security, and 
Department of Justice, published an interim rule in the Federal 
Register at 74 FR 55725, implementing conforming amendments to their 
respective regulations to comply with the Consolidated Natural 
Resources Act of 2008 (CNRA). The CNRA extends the immigration laws of 
the United States to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands

    In the amendment to 8 CFR 299.1 and 8 CFR 299.5, DHS inadvertently 
omitted the edition date and OMB Control Number for the new Form I-9 
CNMI, ``CNMI Employment Eligibility Verification.''
