Specifically, section numbers were redesignated, redundant and obsolete material was removed, certain position and organizational titles were changed, and material previously deleted was restored. The document contained an error in an amendatory instruction. We removed portions of Sec. 17.31 and inadvertently redesignated Sec. 17.31(b)(5) as the new Sec. 17.31, creating two sections for Sec. 17.31. This document will correct that error by removing the second, obsolete Sec. 17.31.
