Background

On Monday, February 6, 2006, FCIC published a proposed rule with request for comments in the Federal Register to add to 7 CFR part 457, the Common Crop Insurance Regulations, a new § 457.169 that will provide insurance for mint. The effect of the proposed rule was to convert the mint pilot crop insurance program to a permanent crop insurance program.

FCIC has been informed the e-mail address listed on the proposed rule and the Federal eRulemaking Portal address were not operational at the time the proposed rule was published. Therefore, FCIC is reopening and extending the comment period until close of business April 24, 2006. This action will allow interested persons who were unable to submit comments additional time to submit comments.
