Marketing Assistance Loan (MAL) and Loan Deficiency Payment (LDP)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This rule corrects the final rule published in the Federal Register 
on June 6, 2006 (71 FR 32415) that amended the regulations governing 
the Marketing Assistance Loan (MAL) and Loan Deficiency Payment (LDP) 
Program of the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC). The final rule, 
among other things, revised section 1427.5 of 7 CFR part 1427 and, in 
doing so, removed the provisions formerly contained in section 
1427.5(e)(3) regarding beneficial interest in cotton used as collateral 
for a marketing assistance loan as it relates to loans made available 
to cotton producers through Cooperative Marketing Associations. An 
attempt was made to correct this error in the CCC final rule published 
on August 30, 2006 by adding provisions dealing with beneficial 
interest into 7 CFR part 1421 as section 1421.6(j). However, the 
correction was supposed to have been made in part 1427, which governs 
marketing assistance loans for cotton, since part 1421 applies only to 
grains and similar commodities, not cotton. Further, the new section 
1421.6(j) is redundant and simply repeats, verbatim, section 1421.6(f). 
This document corrects the regulatory text that was amended erroneously 
and makes the correct revision.
