RIN 2501-AD51


Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands; Correction

AGENCY: Office of the General Counsel, HUD.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: HUD is correcting a final rule published in the Federal 
Register on November 15, 2013. The November 15, 2013, final rule 
revised HUD's regulations governing the protection of wetlands and 
floodplains. Upon publication, HUD discovered that it inadvertently 
duplicated an activity that the final rule exempts from the 8 Step 
Process for floodplains and wetlands management compliance. As a 
result, this document corrects this duplication by removing the 
duplication.

DATES: Effective Date: December 16, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Aaron Santa Anna, Assistant General 
Counsel for Regulations, Office of General Counsel, Department of 
Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW., Room 10276, 
Washington, DC 20410-0500; telephone number 202-708-3055 (this is not a 
toll-free number). Persons with hearing or speech impairments may 
access this number through TTY by calling the Federal Relay Service at 
800-877-8339 (this is a toll-free number).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 15, 2013 (78 FR 68719), HUD 
published a final rule that revised its regulations governing the 
protection of wetlands and floodplains codified at 24 CFR part 55. 
Section 55.12(c) of the rule lists activities exempt from the 
applicability of 24 CFR part 55. Among other things, the final rule 
added to the list of exempted activities the approval of financial 
assistance for restoring and preserving the functions and values of 
floodplains and wetlands. Upon review of the published final rule, HUD 
discovered that this exemption was added at Sec. Sec.  55.12(c)(3) and 
(c)(12). These duplicated paragraphs are identical. As a result, HUD is 
correcting this final rule by deleting Sec.  55.12(c)(12).
    In FR Doc. 2013-27427 appearing on page 68719 in the Federal 
Register of Friday, November 15, 2013, the following correction is 
made:


Sec.  55.12  [Corrected]

1. On page 68732, in the second column, remove Sec.  55.12(c)(12).

    Dated: December 3, 2013.
