[58 PA. CODE CH. 139]

Corrective Amendment to 58 Pa. Code § 139.2

[31 Pa.B. 4536]

   The Game Commission has discovered a discrepancy between the agency text of 58 Pa. Code § 139.2 (relating to definitions) as deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau and the official text published at 30 Pa.B. 2366, 2367 (May 13, 2000) and as currently appearing in the Pennsylvania Code. The definition of ''field possession limit'' was inadvertently omitted.

   Therefore, under 45 Pa.C.S. § 901: The Game Commission has deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau a corrective amendment to 58 Pa. Code § 139.2. The corrective amendment to 58 Pa. Code § 139.2 is effective as of May 13, 2000, the date the amendment appeared in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

   The correct version of 58 Pa. Code § 139.2 appears in Annex A.
