I. Does this action apply to me?

    The Agency included in the August 16, 2013 final rule a list of 
those who may be potentially affected by this action.

II. What does this technical correction do?

    EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of August 16, 2013 
(78 FR 49927) (FRL-9394-8) that established a tolerance for residues of 
the herbicide imazapic in or on the commodity sugarcane, cane. EPA 
inadvertently omitted the footnote ``There are no US registrations as 
of August 16, 2013.'' in the tolerance table denoting that the 
established tolerance on sugarcane, cane is an import tolerance only.

III. Why is this correction 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 
correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, 
because the addition of a footnote to the tolerance table for the 
reason stated in Unit II, is not a significant change and does not 
affect the outcomes of the August 16, 2013 final rule. 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 

    All applicable statutory requirements were discussed in the final 
rule that was published on August 16, 2013.

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).
