Start Preamble


Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA.


Final rule; correction.


The Agricultural Marketing Service published in the Federal Register on September 1, 1999, (64 FR 47898) a final rule which consolidated 31 Federal milk marketing orders into 11 orders. This document corrects an error in section 73 of 7 of those orders by changing the term “pool plant operator” to “handler.” The remaining 4 orders contain the correct language.


This correction is effective May 22, 2000.

Background and Need for Correction

In the final rule (DA-97-12) issued August 23, 1999, and published in the Federal Register on September 1, 1999 (64 FR 47898), an error in Section 73(a) and (b) of Parts 1001, 1005, 1006, and 1007, and Section 73(b) of Parts 1126, 1131, and 1135 was inadvertently made. Specifically, the term “handler” was changed to “pool plant operator.” The correct term is used in the 4 remaining orders (Parts 1030, 1032, 1033 and 1124) and is only different in the 7 orders because of an oversight in drafting the amendments to the orders. Therefore, the applicable provisions of the 7 orders need to be corrected.
