Methyl Parathion, Correction and Clarification of Cancellation


AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

 SUMMARY: This document notifies the public that certain text was
erroneously included in the October 27, 1999, Methyl Parathion
Cancellation Order (64 FR 57877-57881) (FRL-6387-8). Such text is
identified in Unit II.B. of the October 27, 1999 document. Today's

the parties' obligations set forth in the Methyl Parathion Memorandum
of Agreement (MOA) signed August 2, 1999.
