SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On July 3, 2006, CCC published a proposed rule, “Storage Requirements for Grain Security for Marketing Assistance Loans” in the Federal Register (71 FR 37857-37862). The rule proposed changes to the regulations governing the CCC Marketing Assistance Loan Programs authorized by the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (2002 Act). CCC proposed in the rule to no longer require a Federally-licensed warehouse operator or a State-licensed warehouse operator in a State with a warehouse licensing program to execute a CCC storage agreement.

The Agency believes the request for additional time to comment on the proposed rule is reasonable and will allow the rulemaking to proceed in a timely manner. As a result of the reopening and extension, the comment period for the proposed rule will close on October 10, 2006.
