Agricultural Marketing Service April 23, 2009 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Mushroom Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Order
Document Number: E9-9290
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-04-23
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) published a final rule in the Federal Register on July 20, 1992, on the Mushroom Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Order (Order) referendum procedures. This rule established procedures for the conduct of a referendum to determine if producers and importers favored implementation of the Order. The procedures also apply to any subsequent referenda to amend, continue, or terminate the Order. As written, language to amend, suspend, or terminate the program was inadvertently omitted from the procedures. This document corrects that omission.
Walnuts Grown in California; Order Amending Marketing Order No. 984; Correcting Amendment
Document Number: E9-9289
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-04-23
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
The Agricultural Marketing Service published a final rule in the Federal Register on March 3, 2008 (73 FR 11328). The document implemented amendments to the California walnut marketing order. However, that document inadvertently omitted a change that would make the term of office for California Walnut Board (Board) members correspond with the time period prescribed for the Board's marketing year. This correcting amendment changes the term of office of Board members from July 1 through June 30 to September 1 through August 31 to correspond with the Board's marketing year.
