The textual discussion surrounding footnote 66 focuses on regulatory alternatives considered, but rejected by the Department of Labor (Department). Footnote 66 identifies certain public commenters who support a contingent or tiered delay, two regulatory alternatives the Department declined to adopt. Due to a clerical error, the footnote also inadvertently includes the names of public commenters who do not support a contingent or tiered delay. This document corrects that error. In addition, there is text missing in the portion of the preamble that discusses the Congressional Review Act (CRA). The Department inadvertently omitted a discussion of the basis for making the delay effective more quickly than the 60-day period generally required by the CRA for major rules. This document corrects that error. II. Correction of Errors In FR Doc. 2017–25760 of November 29, 2017 (82 FR 56545), make the following preamble corrections: 1. On page 56557, second column, correct footnote 66 to read ‘‘See, e.g., Comment Letter #121 (HSBC North America Holdings Inc.); Comment Letter #124 (Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP).’’ 2. On page 56559, second column, add the following language to the end of Congressional Review Act discussion: ‘‘Although the CRA generally requires that major rules become effective no sooner than 60 days after Congress receives the required report, the CRA allows the issuing agency to make a rule effective sooner, if the agency makes a good cause finding that such public procedure is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. For the same reasons underlying the good cause finding in the April Delay Rule, the Department has made such a good cause finding for this rule.

Our decision approves in part and disapproves in part the amendment. Wyoming proposes both revisions of and additions to its coal rules and regulations concerning ownership and control, adds a provision concerning variable topsoil depths during reclamation, and addresses four deficiencies that were identified by the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) during the review of a previous program amendment (WY–038–FOR; Docket ID No. OSM–2009–0012).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    There is a clerical error in footnote 66 in FR Doc. 2017-25760 
(published November 29, 2017 at 82 FR 56545), entitled ``18-Month 
Extension of Transition Period and Delay of Applicability Dates; Best 
Interest Contract Exemption (PTE 2016-01); Class Exemption for 
Principal Transactions in Certain Assets Between Investment Advice 
Fiduciaries and Employee Benefit Plans and IRAs (PTE 2016-02); 
Prohibited Transaction Exemption 84-24 for Certain Transactions 
Involving Insurance Agents and Brokers, Pension Consultants, Insurance 
Companies, and Investment Company Principal Underwriters (PTE 84-24).''
    Footnote 66 is situated in the regulatory impact analysis section 
of the preamble. The textual discussion surrounding footnote 66 focuses 
on regulatory alternatives considered, but rejected by the Department 
of Labor (Department). Footnote 66 identifies certain public commenters 
who support a contingent or tiered delay, two regulatory alternatives 
the Department declined to adopt. Due to a clerical error, the footnote 
also inadvertently includes the names of public commenters who do not 
support a contingent or tiered delay. This document corrects that 
error.
    In addition, there is text missing in the portion of the preamble 
that discusses the Congressional Review Act (CRA). The Department 
inadvertently omitted a discussion of the basis for making the delay 
effective more quickly than the 60-day period generally required by the 
CRA for major rules. This document corrects that error.

II. Correction of Errors

    In FR Doc. 2017-25760 of November 29, 2017 (82 FR 56545), make the 
following preamble corrections:
    1. On page 56557, second column, correct footnote 66 to read ``See, 
e.g., Comment Letter #121 (HSBC North America Holdings Inc.); Comment 
Letter #124 (Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP).''
    2. On page 56559, second column, add the following language to the 
end of Congressional Review Act discussion: ``Although the CRA 
generally requires that major rules become effective no sooner than 60 
days after Congress receives the required report, the CRA allows the 
issuing agency to make a rule effective sooner, if the agency makes a 
good cause finding that such public procedure is impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. For the same reasons 
underlying the good cause finding in the April Delay Rule, the 
Department has made such a good cause finding for this rule. See 82 FR 
16902, 16915 (April 7, 2017).''
