Potato Research and Promotion Plan; Amend the Administrative Committee Structure and Delete the Board's Mailing Address
Document Number: 2013-15578
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-06-28
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This proposal invites comments on amending the structure of the Administrative Committee (Committee) of the U.S. Potato Board (Board) and deleting the Board's mailing address from the Potato Research and Promotion Plan. The Plan is administered by the Board with oversight by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Under the Plan, there are seven Committee Vice-Chairperson positions. The Board has recommended that these positions be increased to nine. This proposed change is intended to facilitate increased involvement in the Board's leadership opportunities. Further, the Board's office is being relocated and the address must be changed in the Plan. The deletion of the Board's mailing address from the Plan would require no further amendment to the Plan if the Board's office is relocated again.
