It has been proposed to inject a 1 GeV ion beam into the existing Fermilab Booster as a first step toward Fermilab Project X. Because such a beam would have a lower current than the existing linac, the slewing of the magnetic fields in the Booster magnets over the required injection time becomes an issue, and it's been suggested that we could compensate for this with the
new Booster corrector system. We show that the corrector system should comfortably be able to compensate for the change in the total integrated field, but that slew rate limitations set a minimum injection current of 2.2 mA, in order to have the capacity to load $10^{13}$ protons into the Booster.
