Download as PDF rmajette on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 24 / Monday, February 6, 2006 / Proposed Rules (3) For all other states, the date as provided in the Special Provisions. (h) In lieu of section 10(a) of these Crop Provisions, you must give notice of probable loss within 72 hours after you discover any insured mint is damaged and does not have an adequate stand, but no later than the date coverage ends for this option. (i) In addition to the requirements of section 10 of these Crop Provisions, you must give us notice if you want our consent to put any mint acreage to another use before a determination can be made if there is an adequate stand on the acreage. We will inspect the acreage and you must agree in writing no payment or indemnity will be made for the acreage put to another use. The total production to count for acreage put to another use with our consent according to this section will be the production guarantee. (j) In addition to section 11(a) of these Crop Provisions we will make a Winter Coverage Option payment only on acreage that had an adequate stand on the date that insurance attached if the adequate stand was lost due to an insured cause of loss occurring within the Winter Coverage Option insurance period and the acreage consists of at least 20 acres or 20 percent of the insurable planted acres in the unit. (k) In lieu of section 11(b) of these Crop Provisions, we may defer appraisals until the date coverage ends under this option. (l) In lieu of section 11(c) of these Crop Provisions, in the event of loss or damage covered by this policy, we will settle your claim by: (1) Multiplying 60 percent by your production guarantee per acre; (2) Multiplying the result in section 13(l)(1) by the number of acres that do not have an adequate stand; (3) Multiplying the result in section 13(l)(2) by the price election; and (4) Multiplying the result in section 13(l)(3) by your share. For example: Assume that you have a 100 percent share in 100 acres of mint with a guarantee of 50 pounds of oil per acre and a price election of $12 per pound. Also assume that you do not have an adequate stand on 50 acres by the date coverage ends for this option because an insured cause has damaged the stand. Your Winter Coverage Option payment would be calculated as follows: (1) 60 percent × 50 pound guarantee = 30 pound guarantee per acre; (2) 30 pound guarantee per acre × 50 acres without an adequate stand = 1,500 pounds; (3) 1,500 pounds × $12 price election = $18,000; and VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:14 Feb 03, 2006 Jkt 208001 (4) $18,000 × 100 percent share = $18,000 Winter Coverage Option payment. (m) In lieu of section 11(d) of these Crop Provisions, the population of live mint plants to be counted from insurable acreage on the unit will be not less than the population of live mint plants in an adequate stand for acreage: (1) That is abandoned; (2) That is put to another use without our consent; (3) For which you fail to meet the requirements contained in section 13(h); or (4) That is damaged solely by uninsured causes. (n) Acreage for which a Winter Coverage Option payment has been made is no longer insurable under the Crop Provisions for the current crop year. Any mint production subsequently harvested from uninsured acreage for the crop year and not kept separate from production from insured acreage will be considered production to count. (o) Acreage for which a Winter Coverage Option payment has been made will receive an amount of production of zero when computing subsequent year’s approved yield. (p) Sections 11(e), (f), and (g) of these Crop Provisions do not apply to this option. Signed in Washington, DC, on January 30, 2006. Eldon Gould, Manager, Federal Crop Insurance Corporation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Egg Research and Consumer Information Act of 1974, as amended (7 U.S.C. 1201 et seq.), authorized the Egg Research and Promotion Order (7 CFR part 1250), which is industry-operated and funded with oversight by USDA. The Egg Research and Promotion Order’s objective is to establish, finance, and carry out promotion, research, and education programs to improve, maintain, and develop markets for eggs, egg products, spent fowl, and products of spent fowl. The program became effective on August 1, 1976, when the Egg Research and Promotion Order (7 CFR part 1250) was implemented. In accordance with the legislation, the American Egg Board was established, and assessments at 5 cents per 30-dozen case of eggs soon began to be levied. Since that time, assessments have fluctuated from 21⁄2 cents per 30-dozen case of eggs to the current 10 cents per 30-dozen case approved by producer referendum in 1994. Assessments collected under this program are used to carry out promotion, research, and education programs to improve, maintain, and develop markets for eggs, egg products, spent fowl, and products of spent fowl. The program is administered by the American Egg Board, which is composed of egg producers and egg producer representatives. Each of the 18 E:\FR\FM\06FEP1.SGM 06FEP1 6022 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 24 / Monday, February 6, 2006 / Proposed Rules members and their specific alternates are appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture from nominations submitted by certified producer organizations. The Secretary annually appoints half of the Board, nine members and nine alternates, for 2-year terms. AMS published in the Federal Register (64 FR 8014; February 18, 1999) its plan to review certain regulations, including the Egg Research and Promotion Program (conducted under the Egg Research and Promotion Order), under criteria contained in section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA; 5 U.S.C. 601–612). The plan was updated in the Federal Register on August 14, 2003 (68 FR 48574). Because many AMS regulations impact small entities, AMS 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. Accordingly, this notice and request for comments is made for the Egg Research and Promotion Order. The purpose of the review is to determine whether the Order should be continued without change, amended, or rescinded (consistent with the objectives of the Egg Research and Consumer Information Act of 1974) to minimize the impacts on small entities. AMS will consider the continued need for the Order; the nature of complaints or comments received from the public concerning the Order; the complexity of the Order; the extent to which the Order overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal rules, and, to the extent feasible, with State and local regulations; and the length of time since the Order has been evaluated or the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the area affected by the Order. Written comments, views, opinions, and other information regarding the Order’s impact on small businesses are invited. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS1 Dated: January 31, 2006. Lloyd C.
