The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“Commission”) has determined to reestablish its Agricultural Advisory Committee. The Commission has determined that reestablishing the advisory committee is in the public interest in connection with the duties imposed on the Commission by the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 1-26, as amended. The Agricultural Advisory Committee will operate for two years from the date of renewal unless, before the expiration of that time period, its charter is renewed in accordance with section 14(a)(2) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, or the Chairman of the Commission, with the concurrence of the other Commissioners, shall direct that the advisory committee terminate on an earlier date.

The purpose of the Agricultural Advisory Committee is to conduct public meetings and submit reports and recommendations to assist the Commission in assessing issues affecting agricultural producers, processors, lenders and others interested in or affected by the agricultural commodity, futures, and swaps markets.

Meetings of the Agricultural Advisory Committee are open to the public.

The Commission may reestablish the Agricultural Advisory Committee by filing the reestablishment charter with the Commission; the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; the House Committee on Agriculture; the Library of Congress; and the General Services Administration's Committee Management Secretariat at least fifteen (15) calendar days after this notice of reestablishment appears in the Federal Register. A copy of the reestablishment charter will also be posted on the Commission's Web site at

Issued in Washington, DC, on June 25, 2012 by the Commission.

David A. Stawick,

Secretary of the Commission.
