8 CFR Part 103

[CIS No. 2459-08; DHS Docket No. USCIS-2008-0038]
RIN 1615-AB76

Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Transitional Worker 
Classification: Correction

AGENCY: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.


SUMMARY: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is issuing a final 
rule to restore text that was inadvertently deleted in a September 7, 
2011, final rule entitled Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands 
Transitional Worker Classification. In that rule, we had sought to 
modify the title of a paragraph, but inadvertently removed the body of 
the paragraph. This correction restores the text of the paragraph.

DATES: This final rule is effective November 8, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paola Rodriguez Hale, U.S. Citizenship 
and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland Security, 20 
Massachusetts Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20529-2060 telephone (202) 


Need for Correcting Amendment

    In the final rule Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands 
Transitional Worker Classification, published in the Federal Register 
on September 7, 2011 at 76 FR 55502, DHS intended to revise only the 
heading of paragraph (b)(1)(i)(J) of Sec.  103.7, which pertains to 
various U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services fees. The heading of 
that paragraph was revised from ``Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker in 
CNMI (Form I-129CW)'' to ``Petition for a CNMI-Only Nonimmigrant 
Transitional Worker (Form I-129CW).'' We did not intend to alter the 
specific amount of the fee, contained in the text of the paragraph. 
However, in that final rule, paragraph (b)(1)(i)(J) of Sec.  103.7 was 
inadvertently revised in its entirety, eliminating all text except for 
the heading. This document corrects the error by restoring the original 
text of the paragraph.

List of Subjects in 8 CFR Part 103
