Agricultural Marketing Service October 15, 2021 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Tomatoes Grown in Florida; Reapportionment of Membership
Document Number: 2021-22487
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-10-15
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This final rule adjusts the number of member seats apportioned to each district represented on the Florida Tomato Committee (Committee). The Department of Agriculture (USDA) is taking this action due to a 2020 amendment to the marketing order for tomatoes grown in Florida, which reduced the size of the Committee from 12 members to 10, but did not also reduce the number of member seats per district. This action changes the number of members in each of the two districts from six members and their alternates to five members and their alternates, to resolve the regulatory conflict.
