Fish and Wildlife Service

50 CFR Part 92

[Docket No. FWS-R7-MB-2020-0134; FXMB12610700000-201-FF07M01000]
RIN 1018-BF08

Migratory Bird Subsistence Harvest in Alaska; Harvest Regulations 
for Migratory Birds in Alaska During the 2021 Season; Correction

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently issued a final 
rule that revised the migratory bird subsistence harvest regulations in 
Alaska. The final rule included an improperly worded amendatory 
instruction that resulted in the unintentional removal of regulatory 
text. This document corrects that inadvertent error and restores the 
regulations to their proper wording.

DATES: This correction is effective April 28, 2021.

ADDRESSES: You may find the rulemaking action at the Federal 
eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov in Docket No. FWS-R7-MB-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 19, 2021, we published a final rule 
(86 FR 20311) that was effective upon publication and that revised 
certain regulations in title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(CFR) in part 92. The amendatory instructions to the Office of the 
Federal Register (OFR) for the revisions to Sec.  92.31 included an 
instruction to revise paragraph (e); however, the instruction should 
have been to revise the introductory text of paragraph (e). By 
instructing OFR to revise paragraph (e) to read as set forth in the 
rule, we inadvertently instructed OFR to replace all of paragraph (e), 
which at the time of publication of the April 19, 2021, rule included 
subparagraphs (e)(1) and (2), with the text set forth in the rule. 
However, we did not mean to remove paragraphs (e)(1) and (2) from the 
CFR; our intention was only to revise the introductory text of 
paragraph (e).
    Accordingly, this rule corrects our inadvertent error by adding 
paragraphs (e)(1) and (2) back to Sec.  92.31.

Administrative Procedure

    We have determined, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), that prior 
notice and opportunity for public comment are impractical and 
unnecessary. Public comment could not inform this correction process in 
any meaningful way. We have further determined that, under 5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(3), the agency has good cause to make this rule effective upon 
publication, as it is important for the proper administration of our 
programs for our regulations in the CFR to be completely and correctly

Regulation Promulgation

subchapter G of chapter I, title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations, 
as follows:


1. The authority citation for part 92 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 16 U.S.C. 703-712.

2. Amend Sec.  92.31 by adding paragraphs (e)(1) and (2) to read as
