SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Does this action apply to me?

    The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be 
potentially affected by the action. If you have questions regarding the 
applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person 
listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What does this technical amendment do?

    EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of October 24, 2007 
(72 FR 60266) (FRL-8152-9), establishing tolerances for residues of the 
fungicide fenamidone in or on various commodities. In Units II., III., 
and V., of the preamble, the text correctly listed the tolerance level 
for the commodity ``strawberry'' at 0.02 parts per million (ppm). The 
table in Sec.  180.579(d), of the regulatory text, incorrectly listed 
the tolerance level for ``strawberry'' at 0.15. This technical 
amendment corrects that error.

III. Why is this action issued as a final rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an Agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary 
to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without 
providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has 
determined that there is good cause for making this technical amendment 
final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, because this 
action merely corrects a typographical error. EPA finds that this 
constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and executive order reviews apply to this 
action?

    No. For a detailed discussion concerning the statutory and 
executive order reviews, refer to Unit VI. of the October 24, 2007 
final rule.

V. Congressional Review Act

    Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) EPA 
will submit a report containing this rule and other required 
information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and 
the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of 
this rule in the Federal Register. This final rule is not a ``major 
rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
