Proposed rule; amendment to public hearing on proposed rulemaking.


The Agricultural Marketing Service is withdrawing from the notice of hearing that appeared in the Federal Register of February 17, 2005 (70 FR 8043), to consider proposals to amend certain provisions of the Mideast Federal milk marketing order, a proposal regarding producer-handler regulation. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Proposal 10, which would modify the producer-handler definition will not be heard at this time. The proposal to amend the producer-handler definition will be addressed at a future hearing. The date, time and location of the future hearing has yet to be determined. All other proposals as originally published in the February 17, 2005, notice of hearing will still be addressed.
