Start Supplemental Information
A proposed rule was published in the Federal Register on April 6, 2018 (83 FR 14771). That rule proposed to amend the Mango Promotion, Research, and Information Order to include frozen mangos.
The rule also announced the Agricultural Marketing Service's intent to request approval from OMB of new information collection requirements and recordkeeping requirements for the frozen mango industry. Information collection and recordkeeping requirements for the fresh mango program (part 1206) have previously been approved under OMB control nos. 0581-0093 and 0505-0001. Upon approval of this action and associated burden, AMS would submit a Justification for Change to merge this new burden for frozen mangos into the currently approved collection for fresh mangos.
USDA received a letter from industry requesting that the comment period be extended to allow additional time for interested persons to review the proposal and submit comments.
USDA is reopening and extending the comment period an additional 30 days to allow interested persons more time to review the proposed rule, perform an analysis, and submit written comments.
