Further, not more than one such assessment may be collected on any potatoes. The average price was determined to be $5.88 using the years 1994–2003 and one-half of one per centum is 2.94 cents. Accordingly, the Board’s recommendation of 2.5 cents is within the formula allowed by section 1207.342(a). Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553, it is also found and determined upon good cause that it is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest to give preliminary notice prior to putting this rule into effect and that good cause exists for not postponing the effective date of this rule until 30 days after publication in the Federal Register because: (1) The increase in the assessment rate should correspond as closely as practicable with the new 2006 crop; (2) the Board currently needs additional funding to maintain its marketing programs and nutrition campaign; and (3) a sixty-day period is provided for interested persons to comment.
