SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The interim rule published in the May 20, 2015, Federal Register implements Section 6025 of the Agricultural Act of 2014. The Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) requires that Congress be afforded at least 60 days to review rules before they become effective. The May 20, 2015 interim rule only provided a 30 day period before the rule would become effective. Therefore, to comply with the Congressional Review Act, the effective date for the interim rule is being extended an additional 30 days to July 17, 2015.
