Corrective Amendment to 25 Pa. Code § 89.67
[29 Pa.B. 5389]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has discovered a discrepancy between the agency text of 25 Pa. Code § 89.67 (relating to support facilities) as deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau and as published at 28 Pa.B. 2215, 2256 (May 9, 1998) and the official text as published in the Pennsylvania Code Reporter (Master Transmittal Sheet No. 285) and as currently appearing in the Pennsylvania Code. Amendments to § 89.67, adopted at 28 Pa.B. 2215, 2256, were never codified.
Therefore, under 45 Pa.C.S. § 901: The Department has deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau a corrective amendment to 25 Pa. Code § 89.67. The corrective amendment to 25 Pa. Code § 89.67 is effective as of August 1, 1998, the date the defective official text was announced in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
The correct version of 25 Pa. Code § 89.67 appears in Annex A.
