Correcting amendments.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published in the Federal Register of June 11, 2003, an interim final rule revising the requirements governing the interstate transportation of household goods (68 FR 35064). On March 5, 2004, at 69 FR 10570, we issued technical amendments to the interim final rule and its appendix, the consumer pamphlet Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move. On April 2, 2004, we issued further technical amendments to the rule and appendix, and established a new compliance date of May 5, 2004, for the rule (69 FR 17313). In subpart E of the amended rule appendix, two paragraphs were not properly updated to reflect the technical changes relating to orders for service and bills of lading. In addition, four sections of the rule appendix published on June 11, 2003, and March 5, 2004, contained an erroneous statutory citation for the provision under which a person may seek judicial redress for alleged loss of or damage to household goods by a carrier. Finally, the introductory sentence to a list of requirements in subpart D of the appendix misstated the number of elements in the list. This document corrects the interim final rule by revising these sections of the appendix.
