Legal Notice of Public Hearing for Proposed Rule and Monthly Meeting
Summary of Public Hearing Notice:
The Northeast Dairy Compact Commission proposes to amend the over-order price regulation to make technical amendments to certain definitions and to change certain dates of required action. The proposed rule is necessary to conform the over-order price regulation to similar regulations recently reformed by the United States Department of Agriculture regarding milk marketed in the New England states. These amendments will ensure continuity of regulatory definitions and compliance dates in the New England milk market. The Commission also proposes to amend the definition of producer to specify every December since 1996 as a condition of qualification.
