Peach and Nectarine Research Program
[39 Pa.B. 2595]
[Saturday, May 23, 2009]
Under 3 Pa.C.S. §§ 4501--4513 (relating to Agricultural Commodities Marketing Act), a review referendum was held from March 17 to March 31, 2009, to determine if the producers affected by the Peach and Nectarine Research Program (Program) desired to continue the Program for an additional 5 years. To pass, a majority of eligible producers voting had to vote in favor of the Program's continuation. An impartial Teller Committee met on April 23, 2009, to count the ballots. The following results were submitted by the Teller Committee: a total of 57 eligible votes were cast with 44 producers voting in favor of and 13 voting against the continuation of the Program. One additional ballot was invalid because it was unsigned. Votes favoring continuation of the Program by number of producers represented 77.2% of eligible votes and votes against continuation of the Program represented 22.8% of eligible votes. Because a majority of the votes were cast in favor of the program, the Program shall continue for 5 years, effective immediately.
