Joe Leonard, Jr., Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights. [Doc. No. AMS–FV–14–0017] Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA. ACTION: Notice and request for comments. Office of the Secretary AGENCY: Agricultural Marketing Service PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Christmas Tree Promotion, Research, and Information Program (Order). OMB Number: 0581–0268. Expiration Date of Approval: December 31, 2013. Type of Request: Reinstatement of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired. Abstract: The Order, which was established through the publication of a final rule on November 8, 2011 (76 FR 69094), was created to help strengthen the position of Christmas trees in the marketplace, and maintain, develop, and expand markets for Christmas trees in the United States. The Order is authorized under the Commodity Promotion, Research, and Information Act of 1996 (1996 Act) (7 U.S.C. 7411– 7425). On November 17, 2011, a final rule was published that stayed indefinitely the regulations establishing the Order (76 FR 71241) to provide additional time for USDA to reach out to the Christmas tree industry and the public to explain how a research and promotion program is a producer driven program to support American farmers. The stay is being lifted in accordance with the provisions of the Agriculture Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill), and the Christmas tree program will be administered by the Christmas Tree Promotion Board (Board) appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture and financed by a mandatory assessment on producers and importers of fresh cut Christmas trees. The assessment rate will be $0.15 per Christmas tree cut and sold domestically or imported into the United States. The program will provide for an exemption for producers and importers that cut and sell or import fewer than 500 Christmas trees annually. A referendum will be held among eligible producers and importers to determine whether they favor continuation of the program three years after assessments first begin. The information collection requirements in this request are essential to carry out the intent of the Order when the stay is lifted under the authority of the 2014 Farm Bill. Section 10014 of the Farm Bill states that not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment of the 2014 Farm Bill, the Secretary of Agriculture shall lift the administrative stay that was imposed and published in the Federal Register on November 17, 2011.
