The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 7 CFR Part 959 after this date.

The Committee locally administers the order and is comprised of producers and handlers of onions operating within the area of production.

The assessment rate will remain in effect indefinitely unless modified, suspended, or terminated.
