Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Proposed Rule To 
Remove the Virginia Northern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus 
fuscus) from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Proposed rule; extension of comment period; correction.


SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service or we), 
extended the public comment period on the proposed rule to remove the 
Virginia northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus fuscus), more 
commonly known as the West Virginia northern flying squirrel (WVNFS), 
on February 21, 2007 (72 FR 7852). However, we inadvertently left out 
the e-mail address to which the public could send comments. This 
document corrects that error.

DATES: The public comment period for the proposed rule published on 
December 19, 2006 (71 FR 75924) ends on April 23, 2007. If you 
previously submitted a comment through the regulations.gov Web site and 
did not receive an automatic confirmation that we received your 
comment, please either resubmit those comments or contact us. If you 
previously submitted a comment to us via mail, courier, or fax, you do 
not need to resubmit those comments as they have been incorporated into 
the public record and will be fully considered in the final 
determination. Any comments received after the closing date may not be 
considered in the final decision on the proposal.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments on the proposed delisting by any one 
of several methods:
    1. You may submit written comments and information to the Assistant 
Chief, Division of Endangered and Threatened Species, U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service, Northeast Regional Office, 300 Westgate Center Drive,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 19, 2006, the Service published 
a proposed rule (71 FR 75924), under the authority of the Act, to 
remove the WVNFS from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife, due to recovery. On February 21, 2007, we published a 60-day 
comment period extension (72 FR 7852) to the proposed rule. However, we 
inadvertently left out the email address to which the public could send 
comments. We now correct that error.

list of subjects for which we are seeking comments. The public comment 
period for the proposed rule ends on April 23, 2007.
