Title 9 published on 2015-01-01
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 9 CFR Part 201 after this date.
We published a Request for Information in the Federal Register on June 15, 2015 (80 FR 34097), asking for comments regarding a regulation issued under the Packers and Stockyards Act, 1921, as amended and supplemented (P&S Act). GIPSA regulations address circumstances under which a market agency selling livestock on a commission basis may permit its owners, officers, and employees to purchase livestock from consignments to the market. The Request for Information provided an opportunity for interested parties to submit written comments to the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) until August 14, 2015. In response to requests from the livestock industry, we are extending the comment period to provide interested parties with additional time in which to comment.
The United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) is seeking comments from the public regarding regulations issued under the Packers and Stockyards Act, 1921, as amended and supplemented (P&S Act). GIPSA regulations address circumstances under which a market agency is allowed to sell livestock on a commission basis to its owners, officers, and employees. There may be some need to update this regulation to address current marketing practices. GIPSA would like to determine whether additional information is needed in clarifying the circumstances under which key employees of the market agency, those designated as an auctioneer, weighmaster, or salesman, may purchase livestock.
This final rule removes certain regulations promulgated under the Packers and Stockyards Act, 1921 (P&S Act). Under the authority granted to the Secretary of Agriculture (Secretary) and delegated to the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA), GIPSA is authorized to issue regulations necessary to carry out the provisions of the P&S Act. As directed by Congress in Section 731, Division A, of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, GIPSA is rescinding certain regulations issued under the P&S Act. GIPSA is exercising the good cause exceptions provided by the Administrative Procedure Act to forgo notice-and-comment rulemaking and proceed directly to a final rule, because notice and comment rulemaking is impracticable and unnecessary since Congress has ordered the rescission of these specific sections.
