I. Does this action apply to me?

    The Agency included in the April 8, 2016 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 April 8, 2016 
(81 FR 20545) (FRL-9942-99) that was adding commodities including 
Vegetable cucurbit, group 9 to 40 CFR 180.574(a)(1). EPA inadvertently 
omitted the language in the codified text, which would have added 
Vegetable cucurbit, group 9.

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 this is correcting a typographical error. 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 

    No. For a detailed discussion concerning the statutory and 
executive order review, refer to Unit VI. of the April 8, 2016 final 

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 
the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' 
as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
