Continuation of the Pennsylvania Wine Marketing and Research Program

[46 Pa.B. 8191]
[Saturday, December 31, 2016]

 Under the applicable provisions of 3 Pa.C.S. §§ 4501—4513 (relating to Agricultural Commodities Marketing Act), a review referendum was held from November 14—30, 2016, to determine if the producers affected by the Pennsylvania Wine Marketing and Research Program (Program) wished 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 (Committee) met on December 7, 2016, to count the ballots. The following results were submitted by the Committee: a total of 96 eligible votes were cast with 77 producers voting in favor of and 19 voting against the continuation of the Program. Four ballots were invalid because they were received late. Votes favoring continuation of the Program by number of producers represented 80% of eligible votes and votes against continuation of the Program represented 20% of eligible votes. Because a majority of the votes were cast in favor of the Program, the Program shall continue for 5 years, effective 21 days from publication of this notice in accordance with 3 Pa.C.S. § 4509 (relating to notice of issuance).
