Disaster Relief to Small Business Concerns Damaged by Drought

AGENCY: Small Business Administration (SBA).

ACTION: Interim final rule: Notice of reopening of the comment period.


SUMMARY: On December 15, 2006 SBA published in the Federal Register an 
interim final rule on disaster relief to small business concerns 
damaged by drought (71 FR 75407). This interim final rule made 
revisions to the SBA economic injury disaster loans available to small 
businesses that have been adversely affected by drought, or by below 
average water levels in any body of water that supports commerce by 
small business concerns. The original comment period was from December 
15, 2006 through January 16, 2007. SBA is reopening the comment period 
until March 9, 2007 because SBA believes that affected parties need 
more time to adequately respond.

DATES: The comment period for the interim final rule published on 
December 15, 2006 (71 FR 75407) is reopened through March 9, 2007.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by RIN 3245-AF46, by any 
of the following methods: (1) Federal Rulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov, following the specific instructions for submitting
