The Shopper column in the April 14 Style section incorrectly said that Sam and Bellie chalkrolls can be purchased at Piccolo Piggies in the District. They are for sale at Full of Beans in Northwest Washington, Cosmo Tots in Arlington and Samandbellie.com.

An April 14 Business article incorrectly said that a study by large accounting firms of the costs of complying with new accountability rules found that fees could fall by as much as 46 percent next year. It was the total cost of compliance that the study predicted would be reduced.

A chart with an April 12 article on the Maryland General Assembly incorrectly reflected the status of a bill on electronic voting machines. The measure approved does not require paper verification of computerized votes; rather, it requires a study of the matter.

An April 12 article on communications that John D. Negroponte sent while he was the U.S. ambassador to Honduras misidentified the recipient of a May 1982 cable to the secretary of state. That cable would have gone to Alexander M. Haig Jr., not George P. Shultz.
