Management of shows, sales, exhibitions, or auctions must identify sored horses to prevent their participation under the act.

As the nation’s primary public program for ensuring food security and alleviating hunger, the Food Stamp Program needs to regularly monitor food security conditions among its target population.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    To be eligible for a Marketing Assistance Loan under the loan 
provisions of 7 CFR part 1421, an eligible commodity must be stored in 
approved storage, which is either on-farm storage, or an approved 
warehouse that meets the CCC standards for approval of warehouses. 
Further, in accordance with the CCC Charter Act (15 U.S.C. 714 et 
seq.), CCC enters into storage agreements with private grain and rice 
warehouse operators to provide for the storage of commodities owned by 
CCC or pledged as security to CCC for marketing assistance loans.
    To ease the demands made on approved warehouse space for the 2006 
crop, the CCC will accept as collateral for marketing assistance loans 
for corn, wheat, and other feed grains, warehouse receipts issued by a 
warehouse that is storing such commodity in outside storage if the 
warehouse has executed a Uniform Grain and Rice Storage Agreement 
(UGRSA) with CCC and if the warehouse is either:
    1. A Federally-licensed warehouse under the United States Warehouse 
Act (USWA) and is in compliance with the provisions of its USWA 
license; or
    2. For all other warehouses, the warehouse is in compliance with 
State laws allowing the outside storage of such commodities.

USWA Emergency Storage Requirements

    Warehouse operators requesting emergency storage space under the 
USWA must:

emergency storage space;
    2. Meet USWA's security, net worth, bonding, and insurance 
requirements as required for conventional storage space;
    3. Provide written justification that a need for emergency storage

    8. Emergency storage is limited to wheat, corn, and other feed

Warehouse Operator's Liability

    The use of emergency storage space does not relieve warehouse

authority (as applicable), or the UGRSA. Warehouse operators are 
responsible for the quantity and quality of grain stored in emergency 
storage space to the same extent as their liability for conventional 
storage space.
