AGENCY: Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA), DOT.

ACTION: Correction to final rule.


SUMMARY: This document contains a correction to the final rule (Docket 
PS-124) changing miscellaneous gas pipeline safety regulations that was 
published Thursday, June 6, 1996 (61 FR 28770) in the Federal Register.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 7, 1996.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Albert C. Garnett, at (202) 366-2036, 
regarding this correction or the Dockets Unit, at (202) 366-5046, 
regarding copies of this document or other material in the docket.



    The final rule that includes the subject correction changed

economic growth. As set out in the final rule under the heading 
Executive Order 12866 and DOT Regulatory Policies and

[[Page 41020]]

Procedures, the miscellaneous changes resulted in an annual savings, 
without associated costs or adverse effects on safety.

Need for Correction

    The final rule in amendatory instruction 36. mistakenly did not 
include the former C.6. as the new D.8. The effect of this inadvertency 
is the omission of the ``ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section 
IX * * *.''

Correction of Publication

    Accordingly, the publication on June 6, 1996, of the final rule 
(Docket PS-124), which was the subject of FR Doc. 96-13787, is 
corrected as follows:

Appendix A to Part 192--[Corrected]

    On page 28786, in the second column, lines 12 and 13, of the 
amendatory instruction 36. are corrected to read ``through D.6. as 
subsections D.5. through D.8., respectively, and by adding new''.

    Issued in Washington, DC, August 1, 1996.

Associate Administrator for Pipeline Safety.
