This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

This rule corrects the final regulations published in the Federal Register on September 13, 2004 (69 FR 55061-55063) that amended the sugar marketing allotment regulations at 7 CFR 1435 with respect to the reassignment of processors' marketing allocations. In the final rule, the revision to section 1435.309 inadvertently removed paragraphs (c)(3) and (c)(4). These paragraphs are restored. The revision to section 1435.309(c) provided that if CCC determines a sugarcane processor will be unable to market its full allocation for the crop year in which an allotment is in effect, the deficit will be reassigned by June 1. This correction deletes the reference to June 1 in section 1435.309(c) and adds a new paragraph 1435.109(d) that clarifies that June 1 is the date by which the initial estimate of the deficit will be reassigned and that later reassignments will be made if CCC determines after June 1 that a sugarcane processor will be unable to market its full allocation for the crop year in which an allotment is in effect. These corrections are required for the proper administration of the program.Start List of Subjects

The revisions and additions read as follows:

(3) If the deficit cannot be eliminated by paragraphs (c)(1) and (c)(2) of this section, be reassigned to CCC. CCC shall sell such quantity from inventory unless CCC determines such sales would have a significant effect on the sugar price.
(4) If any portion of the deficit remains after paragraphs (c)(1), (c)(2), and (c)(3) of this section have been implemented, be reassigned to imports.
(d) The initial estimate of the sugarcane deficit will be reassigned by June 1. CCC will conduct later reassignments if CCC determines, after June 1, that a sugarcane processor will be unable to market its full allocation.
