SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Marketing Order No. 929, as amended (7 CFR part 929), regulates the handling of cranberries grown in States of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, and Long Island in the State of New York. The marketing order is effective under the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 (AMAA), as amended (7 U.S.C. 601– 674). AMS initially published in the Federal Register (63 FR 8014; February 18, 1999) its plan to review certain regulations, including Marketing Order No. 929, under criteria contained in section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA; 5 U.S.C. 601–612). An updated plan was published in the Federal Register on January 4, 2002 (67 FR 525). The plan was modified again and published in the Federal Register on August 14, 2003 (68 FR 48574). Because many AMS regulations impact small entities, AMS has decided, as a matter of policy, to review certain regulations which, although they may not meet the threshold requirement under section 610 of the RFA, warrant review. The purpose of the review will be to determine whether the marketing order for cranberries grown in States of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, and Long Island in the State of New York should be continued without change, amended, or rescinded (consistent with the objectives of the AMAA) to minimize the impacts on small entities. In conducting this review, AMS will consider the following factors: (1) The continued need for the marketing order; (2) the nature of complaints or comments received from the public concerning the marketing order; (3) the complexity of the marketing order; (4) the extent to which the marketing order overlaps, PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal rules, and, to the extent feasible, with State and local governmental rules; and (5) the length of time since the marketing order has been evaluated or the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the area affected by the marketing order. Written comments, views, opinions, and other information regarding the cranberry marketing order’s impact on small businesses are invited. Dated: July 7, 2005. Kenneth C.
