7 CFR 1.655 - What evidence is admissible at the hearing?
(i) Relevant, reliable, and probative; and
(ii) Not privileged or unduly repetitious or cumulative.
(2) The ALJ may exclude evidence if its probative value is substantially outweighed by the risk of undue prejudice, confusion of the issues, or delay.
(3) Hearsay evidence is admissible. The ALJ may consider the fact that evidence is hearsay when determining its probative value.
(b)Objections. Any party objecting to the admission or exclusion of evidence must concisely state the grounds. A ruling on every objection must appear in the record.
