Need for Correction
On March, 23, 1999 (64 FR 14052), NMFS published a final rule which consolidated and reorganized the Endangered Species Act regulations as part of the President’s Regulatory Reinvention Initiative. With that publication, NMFS inadvertently added an ‘and’ between 50 CFR 223.206 (d)(2)(ii)(A)(3) and (4). This addition inappropriately links the conditions of both paragraphs when, in fact, they were separate prior to the publication of the March 23, 1999, final rule.
