9 CFR Part 77

[Docket No. APHIS-2008-0124]


Tuberculosis in Cattle and Bison; State and Zone Designations; 
NM; Correction

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Correcting amendment.

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

SUMMARY: We are correcting an error in the regulatory text of an 
interim rule that amended the bovine tuberculosis regulations by 
establishing two separate zones with different tuberculosis risk 
classifications for the State of New Mexico. The interim rule was 
published in the Federal Register on March 23, 2009 (74 FR 12055-12058, 
Docket No. APHIS-2008-0124).

DATES: Effective Date: March 22, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. C. William Hench, Senior Staff 
Veterinarian, National Tuberculosis Eradication Program, Veterinary 
Services, APHIS, 2150 Centre Ave, Bldg B, MSC 3E20, Ft. Collins, CO 
80526; (970) 494-7378.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In an interim rule published in the Federal 
Register on March 23, 2009 (74 FR 12055-12058, Docket No. APHIS-2008-
0124), we amended the bovine tuberculosis regulations by establishing 
two separate zones with different tuberculosis risk classifications for 
the State of New Mexico. (Please note, however, that the State of New 
Mexico, in a subsequent rule, was declared an accredited-free State and 
still holds that status). In our March 2009 rule, when we removed New 
Mexico from the list of modified accredited advanced States, we revised 
Sec.  77.9(a) and introduced an error by referring to ``modified 
accredited States'' when we should have referred to ``modified 
accredited advanced States.'' This document corrects that error.

List of Subjects in 9 CFR Part 77

    Accordingly, 9 CFR part 77 is corrected by making the following
