MILK MARKETING BOARD
Emergency Hearing for All Milk Marketing Areas to Consider Modifications in the Methodology for Establishing Class I Prices Paid to Producers
[27 Pa.B. 6136]
Under the Milk Marketing Law (31 P. S. §§ 700j-101--700j-1302) the Milk Marketing Board (Board) will on its own motion conduct an emergency public hearing for all milk marketing areas on December 2, 1997, commencing at 2 p.m. in Room 110 of the Agriculture Building, 2301 North Cameron Street, Harrisburg, PA.
The purpose of the emergency hearing is to receive evidence concerning whether, in the wake of the recent Federal court order enjoining the Secretary of the United States Department of Agriculture from enforcing Class I differentials, the Board should adopt for its own interim use the differentials in the Federal marketing orders. The hearing is being called on an emergency basis to provide for a prompt, short-term response to virtual deregulation of the Federal Class I price.
The staff of the Board is deemed to be a party to this hearing and to have complied with the following filing requirements. Other persons who wish to present evidence may be included on the Board's list of parties by (1) having their attorney file with the Board on or before November 28, 1997, a notice of appearance substantially in the form prescribed by 1 Pa. Code § 31.25 or (2) if unrepresented by counsel, filing with the Board on or before November 28, 1997, notification of their desire to be included as a party.
Presubmission of testimony and exhibits is not required. However, copies of written testimony and exhibits shall be provided at the hearing to members of the Board and to all other parties, with at least 20 additional copies made available in the hearing room by their sponsor.
Parties that wish to offer in evidence documents on file with the Board, public documents, or records in other proceedings before the Board or who wish the Board to take official notice of facts, shall comply with, respectively, 1 Pa. Code §§ 35.164, 35.165, 35.167 or 35.173. Whenever these rules require production of a document as an exhibit, copies shall be provided to members of the Board and to all other parties, with at least 20 additional copies made available in the hearing room by their sponsor. A prehearing conference for all parties will be held at 10 a.m. on December 2, 1997, in Room 110 of the Agriculture Building. The filing address for the Board is Milk Marketing Board, Room 110, Agriculture Building, 2301 North Cameron Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110-9408.
