We published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register on February 11, 2008 (73 FR 7686), asking for comments on proposed amendments to four existing scales and weighing regulations issued under the Packers and Stockyards Act (P&S Act). The notice provided an opportunity for interested parties to submit written comments to Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) until April 11, 2008. In response to a request from the poultry industry, we are reopening and extending the comment period to provide interested parties with additional time in which to comment.
